I don't believe in jinxes & I believe we will win and big but just not sure if we have shaken the old Texans. If we lose this first game, I will be 100% totally disgusted. I don't want to hear, "it's only one game" or "give them time" but am sure it will be posted more than once.

Well, that wouldn't be a change for me. I started the season not liking Kubiak. I still hope that changes though. I really do. I'm tired of this same old shit.

But if we lose, I'm gonna be really hard to live with on this board.

Like that's news. LOL

there's not a lot of difference between "We Suck Again" and "We Suck Still". Most especially when it's more correct to say "We Still Suck".

My first thought?

"How much will it cost to replace the HDTV that now has a chair sticking out of it?"

Second thought:

"I should be smart enough to know that being a Texans fan means you swap out your real furniture for inflatable stuff."

Third thought:

"Why am I still a Texans fan?"

Fourth thought:

"McNair is cheap."

Depends on what caused the loss.
If Schaub goes down with a concussion in the 1st qtr and Leinart stinks it up I'll be more forgiving than if Schaub comes out flat again or throws a pick-six or two to put the Colts back in the game.

If they just flat beat us - at home - I'll be livid.

But I can't make a judgement on what hasn't been seen. It depends on why we lost.

Earlier, a buddy sent me a text saying: "If we lose Sunday, panic button?"

I honestly didn't have an answer for him. If we lose, I don't what I would think. Yes, I'd be furious, but in a "shaking my head" kind of way.

I believe in the "any given Sunday" part of football and all, but, I honestly can't think of one single reason why this team won't be in the playoffs this year. Everything is lining up for us. EVERYTHING.

I'll think about what caused us to lose. If Matt Schaub snaps his leg in half and we have to throw Leinart in and we lose, then I'm obviously not going to be as upset.

09-09-2011, 02:57 AM
If we lose I think I'd be in shock for a while. Then I'd remember these are the Texans and it's the SOS, same old shit, again. I'd jump on the Fire Kubiak thread that would inevitably start. In anger I'd consider switching my allegience to another team and say screw this team but a few days and lots of beer later I'd calm down and root for the Texans again but still call for Kubiak's and Smith's head.

No matter what the cause my "first thought" will be GD SOB!!!!!!

If it were cause of Kubiak trying to get "cute" I would curse some more, read the "fire kubiak" thread, get a few painful laughs....

Look at my sig line and remind myself there is a reason I put it there

Eventually calm down and pray the "ship" rights it self since I have no faith in the "captain".

But, it IS just one game. The league is so talented even an expansion team can come in and win it's first game. It won't bother me....mainly because of the relative strength and even talent across the league, but also because I've seen years of "often confused coach Kubiak" melting down at important moments when the game gets tight at the end - getting back to my first point that the league is too talented top to bottom to say any match-up is a given. Hell, look at the entire league schedule this week. Not many 'sure wins' out there. There is no Rice U at Texas in the NFL.

I cosign this.

In 2006, Kubiak was armed with the talent level of a .22 pistol.

In 2011, The Texans put an Israeli-manufactured Desert Eagle in
Kubiak's hands.

In 5 seasons, has Kubiak yet learned how to shoot?


If we lose, I won't be surprised. Kubiak will be the only common denominator.
Time to deduct.

Oakland at DenverVinny, it is much more than that. It is a psychological impetus (one way or the other). Plus a win keeps everyone chilling while the defense gets another week of practice with a W in the column. If a loss occurs, fans will go nuts, some players will have doubts and pressure builds on Ric and Gary. I doubt Mr. McNair is going to think, "No biggie, it is only one game."

The only time one game defines you is in the playoffs. We are going to draw conclusions from this game win or lose, but losing the first one out of the shoot won't cripple them psychologically. Could just piss them off enough to come out swinging more often.

That'd be the best case scenario of they lose. But I don't think we'll hear the end of Texans' lack of killer instinct until we take the division. Until then people are going to look to the past and see a team that seems to falter mid-season. I do hope they get angry though.

the fans will be nutso, but the players will just work keep working hard. I don't think all this 'stuff' messes with them much. Wade would be a game closer to being our HC if the lack of a killer instinct thing persists into this season I'd agree.

My first thought will be "what's for dinner?"

Seriously, it's about that time that we have to start planning what to eat for the kids. 5:00 comes around quick.

I know the Colts are a lesser team without Manning. But, they are still a pro football team.

And let's face it: it's the Texans. Their toughest opponent is often the Houston Texans.

So I do not expect to win or lose. The only expectation that I have is to be entertained.

After all, it is only a diversion at the end of the day. They win or lose - WE WATCH. :howdy:

Anyway, it is a long season. 4-2 last year reminded me of that valuable lesson. 2-8 was a long fall from that point.

Hervoyel
09-09-2011, 08:25 PM
My first thought in the event of a loss will most likely be "Should have seen that coming".

I understand that Wade Phillips is a defensive "guru" and that the defense will be better. I know that was a necessary step. What I have been worried about from the moment we stumbled out of the 2010 season is that this team has always been soft and "fragile". There's no mental toughness in this bunch. They've never been able to put anything together when the pressure is on and that's on Gary Kubiak. They carry his personality with them in everything they do. Hiring a better defensive coordinator will help but Wade Phillips isn't going to change the way this team folds up like a cheap suit when faced with a tough opponent.

But I'm desperate to see them improve so please, let me be all wrong. Let the Texans stride into 2011 with some swagger and ready to knock some dicks in the dirt. Let Gary coach offense, let Wade coach defense, and let someone either on the team or in the coaching staff figure out how to make this bunch move like they got a pair.

Please let that happen just once before I die.

My first thought in the event of a loss will most likely be "Should have seen that coming".

I'm reminded of a literary quote that goes something like this:

"Sad but True....."

I see Colts fans who basically know that their team is gonna really struggle without Peyton on their forums really rallying around trying to pull themselves together and think positively that they can get it done with a 38 yr old Kerry Collins, and yet here we are with a real chance at doing something in this division for the first time and we're being complete negative nancies. :vincepalm:



I'll let you know what my first thought was if we do happen to lose, but if that doesn't come then all i have to say is go Texans!:cow:


I do get the reason why most of us are a little negative, but still gotta try to think positively! :logo:

I used to say the same thing a few years ago. When we started this thing I was in my late 30's and now I'm closing in on 50 with no playoff appearances in a league that sends nearly half the league to the playoffs each year. I was kinda joking at first, but it's not so funny anymore.

It might be "only a game" but I would totally hit Texan Bill really hard in his own junk.

Seriously.

I have been rejuvenated and gotten a huge boost of excitement this past offseason. The loss to the Titans on MNF in 2009 put me in a deep funk. I was angry with the Texans for their lack of aggressiveness during the 2010 offseason. I thought they'd go 7-9 and unfortunately the Texans proved me right.

I wanted Kubiak gone without question after the season. I was dejected when he wasn't fired. The lockout was good in a way in that it allowed my mind to reset and start fresh.

I absolutely loved the draft which started the juices flowing. Signing Josepth and Manning were the types of moves that I have been begging for for over 10 years. I gained a tremendous amount of respect for Wade and the positive influence he has had. I absolutely loved what I saw from the D during the preseason. Never have seen that type of pass rush from any Texans team.

Houston's loyal and long suffering football fans have not had a playoff team since 1993-1994. That's half my life. We are way past due as fans. This team needs to give us some joy and I want the playoffs so badly. If they lose Sunday they will deflate this city like they have done their entire existence. Fi want the Texans to get this town fired up and excited about them. Those of us old enough to remember Oilers playoff teams remember how fun it is.

My first thought in the event of a loss will most likely be "Should have seen that coming".

I understand that Wade Phillips is a defensive "guru" and that the defense will be better. I know that was a necessary step. What I have been worried about from the moment we stumbled out of the 2010 season is that this team has always been soft and "fragile". There's no mental toughness in this bunch. They've never been able to put anything together when the pressure is on and that's on Gary Kubiak. They carry his personality with them in everything they do. Hiring a better defensive coordinator will help but Wade Phillips isn't going to change the way this team folds up like a cheap suit when faced with a tough opponent.

But I'm desperate to see them improve so please, let me be all wrong. Let the Texans stride into 2011 with some swagger and ready to knock some dicks in the dirt.

Do you think Kubiak and his team felt like that due to knowing their defense sucks because they practice against them?

First thought - SOS

My expectations are at zero. I am now from Missouri - Show Me what you can do first.

I got overly excited last year. Then came game 3 against the Cowgirls. The effort I saw from the Texans was horrible. Besides someone stole my large Texans magnet off the tailate of my truck and the Texans sign on my front lawn that weekend.

If this team does not take the division this year - everyone needs to be pink soaped and Cowher needs to be HC.

I guess all those times that we (unfortunately were in the position to have to) came back in games and showed insane resiliency shows how mentally fragile we are, huh?

Sucks that we were unprepared enough and crappy enough to have those deficits in the first place, but I'd say making so many games "games" again, leaving the result to literally a handful of plays shows quite a bit of mental toughness.

Could have just as easily lost 45-3 every game.

I don't believe in jinxes & I believe we will win and big but just not sure if we have shaken the old Texans. If we lose this first game, I will be 100% totally disgusted. I don't want to hear, "it's only one game" or "give them time" but am sure it will be posted more than once.

my first thought will be "SOMEBODY'S GONNA GET FIRED"

Thanks for nothing BoBBy/Gary/Rick.

where's Wade's name??
If we lose that means we got outscored.
if we got outscored, that most likely means the defense failed.
If the defense failed, then that's on Wade.
So where's Wade's name???

Because Wade's last name doesn't start with a K.

That's always been one of my biggest complaints regarding Kubiak. He saw the defense everyday in practice. He saw the gameplan. How could he not know that it wasn't going to work? How could he not know? And yet, Kubiak did nothing but stare blankly into his Denny's menu, week after week.

Wade is here to clean up the mess that Bob, Gary, and Rick made. He's basically The Wolf. If he can't accomplish that in the first week of the season (I think he can), that doesn't relief Bob, Gary, and Rick from responsibility. It's still their mess, 6 years running.

The only way I can justify is to say that maybe Gary truly thought that he is an offensive mastermind, and he does this to every defense. And that he is so good at offense, his defense can suffer, have holes, and functionally be a placeholder for the 'real' team, AKA The Offense.

Agreed. At the end of the day, if an organization is not succeeding it is the fault of the leader. It's all Bob's fault, but I think he genuinely wants to win. Had he known the formula to win (which seems very basic to some people on this board), then he would have implemented it from day one. I think he's had it with Kubiak and if the kids don't play well -- will shit can him faster than the amount of time it takes John McClain to look at Anna Megan's cleavage when she's not paying attention.

For the sake of Kubiak being from Houston, I want Kubes to succeed. As a Houstonian, I do my very best to TRY to never root against them. I, along with every other person who reads this board, has witnessed several times Kubiak making a glaring error in a crucial moment in the game. The only difference between his supporters and his detractors, is that the former believes these were 'growing pains' by a first time head coach and that he has grown out of them. The later, believes that these problems are symptomatic of being a loser. People can't fix or get the stink of it off them, and he's got Ian Howfield written all over that stoic face of his.
