Anyone who actually blames this loss on the refs is an total freaking *****. Shut up with that silly noise.

You can't blame people for being mad. It's an emotional time for people who are very in to this team. So how bout you please shut up sir.

This is what you get when you can't convert red zone opportunities into seven points.

FUQNG THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I need someone to remind that hey, we played close on the road so allo is well blah blah blah.

Why the F was KJ left on the field to get burnt the F up???

It's funny how 3rd down for our D is all too often really just a 1st down waiting to be had for opposing offenses.

Before I get flamed...I am NOT saying the season is over and I know our D is still growing, I know the Saints are good and we were on the road blah blah blah.

Truth is we had this game and could have dominated and melted the F down....

Sound familiar?

Thank GOD I have my daughter and wasn't drinking today...may have been the end of my TV.

I don't know about you guys, but the announcers told me that Sproles is the best thing since sliced bread!

On a more serious note, the Texans played one heck of a game today. Once Foster comes back, and Kubiak has some more faith in the running game in the red zone. Then we can cash in on more touchdowns.

Like I said before though earlier this week. The Texans came in and competed with probably one of the best teams in the league.

Oh please. This wasn't coaching. This was Drew Brees throwing to whoever Kareem Jackson was covering in the 4th.

No it wasnt. Yes, KJ contributed, but it is still a coaching deal. Why? Because you have to know how to protect your weaker players/positions. So either dont have KJ out there, or put him in a position to succeed. Both coaching options, and I prefer the first.

But the most grievous coaching mistake is in regards to the RZ offense. For real? 4 in a row, 4 field goals. That is sixteen (16) points left on the board. Convert on just half of them, and that is a Texans win.

Also, why did he abandon the running game? 10 rushes the entire second half (if I counted right). 10. Cant expect to win with poor clock management, which has been a Kubiak failing for years.

Well that one hurt, just as I suspected it would. Going in to this game we all understood that we were going into one of the toughest places to play against an elite NFL team. Nobody expected the Texans to win this game. We played tough and had a chance to win the game in the end which is just what we should've been hoping for. It would've been amazing to win this one but let's not go all doom and gloom on a team that is 2-1 and lost a close one to one of the NFL's best. We have another elite team coming to Kirby Drive next weekend and I'm confident we'll take care of business at home.

Schaub 22-39 373yds 3td 1int isnt all his fault

No it wasn't all his fault but I lost respect for him. When Brees was rushed he made extra time and made a play. When Schaub was rushed, he panicked, got shaky knees and didn't make a play. Ball game.

If I was to 2nd guess our coaching staff, I thought the 2 possesions we had inside of 10 minutes left in the game, we should have attempted to pound the ball instead of putting the game in shaky knee's hand. 3 and out and an INT. I thought we should have attempted to take some time off the clock. It was an entertaining game if not a win against a very good team on the road. We can build on this and we missed Foster/Ward. Slaton just can't get you a yard.

Casey, Daniels and Andre had big games. The defense suffered when Mario couldn't go. You can see the lack of pressure from the entire D when he leaves the game also.

The only other thing I noticed was Sproles stealing both shoes from Nolan. Both time Nolan tried to take aim at him, Sproles just left him in the dust. Didn't even lay a hand on him.

This loss falls squarely on Kubiak. His HORRENDOUS play calls when we had the ball 3 times at their goal line cost us the game. I didn't expect us to win, but man Kubiak needs a lobotomy or something. It's all on him this time for real! Getting that close and not coming away with touchdowns at least twice is inexcusable.

Season is not over, but this was a huge opportunity that the Texans had but another typical performance by them late in the game.

This was supposed to be a gauge of where we are.

I know we've still got coaching issues on both sides of the ball. But I think the team is good enough to get it done.

We're still only three games into this defense. I think the Texans spoiled us over the two previous games & some of us were just playing lip service to what this game really meant.

Nobody wins 16 games.

The big thing for us is how we follow this game up. If we loose next week, for any reason I'll be with DexmanC & turn in my Texans fan card.

But I know we can play with anybody. I know we've got 13 games to put together a winning season & a playoff run.


It's not like any of those teams we scored 20 points on in the 4th Qtr gave up & laid down for the rest of the season.

I think the point is that the script was familiar -- that the Texans can mostly control the first half, lose control of it in the second half and fail to execute in the second half like in the first -- not that this a no-talent expansion team.

There's no shame at all in losing a close one to one of the NFL's best teams on the road. This is a very talented team But *how* the Texans lost the game was just depressingly familiar, and it's a script that can't keep repeating if they are (as I believe they can be) to make strides toward becoming one of the NFL's elite teams.

So I don't understand how the Texans are not winning. People need to chill out and let the season play out. They lost to a good team, it happens.

I think it's because of the *way* the team lost, one that points to coaching, and making people wonder if this team -- no matter *how* talented -- can stop letting games "get away" from them in the second half. No Gary Kubiak team has demonstrated that killer instinct.

If the Saints blew us out -- oh well, maybe we're not "ready for prime time."

If it were close but the Saints were mostly leading from beginning to end, you got beat by a great team on the road that was just a little bit better than you. No problem, no worries.

But this loss -- the style of the loss if nothing else (and even if the similarity to past Texans teams ends there) -- is like watching Groundhog Day. Give Kubiak and Belichick the same team and a 14-point halftime lead, and which team do you think is more likely to win? Which team is more likely to show the killer instinct and finish what they started, and which team is more likely to take the foot off the accelerator and then fail to recover when they start to lose control?

That's not a statement about the talent on the team -- not at all. And yes, you have to tip your cap (helmet) to the Saints. But the Texans need to follow up strong a first half with a strong second half if they are to be the team most of us think they can (and should) be.

I think it's because of the *way* the team lost, one that points to coaching, and making people wonder if this team -- no matter *how* talented -- can stop letting games "get away" from them in the second half. No Gary Kubiak team has demonstrated that killer instinct.

If the Saints blew us out -- oh well, maybe we're not "ready for prime time."

If it were close but the Saints were mostly leading from beginning to end, you got beat by a great team on the road that was just a little bit better than you. No problem, no worries.

But this loss -- the style of the loss if nothing else (and even if the similarity to past Texans teams ends there) -- is like watching Groundhog Day. Give Kubiak and Belichick the same team and a 14-point halftime lead, and which team do you think is more likely to win? Which team is more likely to show the killer instinct and finish what they started, and which team is more likely to take the foot off the accelerator and then fail to recover when they start to lose control?

That's not a statement about the talent on the team -- not at all. And yes, you have to tip your cap (helmet) to the Saints. But the Texans need to follow up strong a first half with a strong second half if they are to be the team most of us think they can (and should) be.

Actually Bellichek gave up a 21 point lead today and lost the game as well.

True. But they had already lost momentum well before halftime.

Exactly.

Teams that are 2-1...

Saints...Patriots...most likely the Chargers...Steelers.

So I don't understand how the Texans are not winning. People need to chill out and let the season play out. They lost to a good team, it happens.

Lol......no not exactly.

I can't keep talking logic that won't be absorbed at this point. You think what you need to to feel good about whatever you need to.

This is why that :vincepalm:

Logic? Fact is the team is 2-1 not a bad record at all throughout the first three weeks considering who we beat and who we lost to.

Remember last year how we lost our first game against our first real 'test'?

It wasn't even close. We got blown out and embarrassed against the Cowboys. That's not even the point, the point is you are allowed to lose some games, especially against a great team that is a superbowl contender.

The teams we beat are still winless, so it means jack that we are 2-1. We are 0-1 against teams that have won games this season.

So?

The Steelers will have beat two winless teams also if they win tonight.

It's too early in the season to be saying the Texans can't beat good teams when they've only lost to one.

So what? We beat the Colts last year in a divisional game too. We DEMOLISHED them , actually. Where did that get us? What did we measure up to?

Who CARES about these other teams?

Funny how people just gloss over things like that.

It's one game of 16.

People don't give credit to the Texans for their 2-0 start because they played a Manning-less Colts and a suckbutt Miami, but want to turn right around and give the Lions all kinds of love for beating the Chiefs, Bucs and Vikes. Who have they played?

Some of you people just need to go back to your Madden football and just stay away from the real stuff.

The Steelers have a history of winning. The Texans have a history of looking when there is no pressure.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice (or, actually, 4, the amount of seasons we have been expecting the play-offs), shame on me. I need the Texans to prove that they are for real, against real teams. That means not only playing on the same field as real teams, but beating real teams.

How about the Bills today? We would consider the Patriots contendors no? Bills beat them.

Lions were down by a lot today, on the road in a divisional game and won to go 3-0. Sorry, I give them credit for that.

Except it's a division game. It's like us beating the Colts, with Manning.

& they were at home.

You are right they do have to prove it. There are 13 more games left for them to do just that. Think it is way too early to say that they can't beat the good teams right now, that rings true for a lot of teams because they have yet to even play many good teams.

Because it shows that not every team needs all this time and excuses to start winning.

Also, while I stand behind the points I am making, I am not trying to attack you to be clear. I'm just frustrated right now.

So you think the Bills will go 16-0 this season?

They can lose to Cincy on the road next week, we could beat the Steelers at home, we'll both be 3-1 & leading our divisions.

You're right, it's only 1 game. It's not that we lost but how we lost.

Hahaha...really hoping you are not implying I don't know football or some assinine stuff.....that would be hilarious.

Yeah I realize it was a divisional game, so what, this game made the Bills 3-0....not some upset where it now makes them 1-2. They nutted up, came from behind and did what they had to. /end

Almost like what the Texans did against the Redskins last season in week two right?

The funny thing is that whether this game means something going forward or means nothing going forward is impossible to know.

When we lost to the Cowboys a lot of people can now say "See, i told you that was the beginning of the end" but no one truly knows. The NFL is not easily predicted. We will need to wait until a few games down the line before we know whether this game is indicative of a trend or a single occurrence

Does anyone want to curse Sean Payton for taking three points off the board & taking a knee instead of running up the score?

Honestly, I've grown to the point where "Yes, please score on me."

If I can't stop you, that's on ME.

This isn't for charity. This isn't for fun. Play football, don't weenie out and claim you were being "classy" or trying to avoid a game-changing fumble/interception. If you're knocking on my door, bust the sum'buck wide open and make yourself at home.

Obviously, if you're at mid-field and you want to drain the clock...go ahead and run it out. If you're moving the ball, and you want to tack on another TD because you're at my 2 and you got 3 downs to get a TD, then by all means go ahead. If I can't stop you, I can't stop you. Such is life.

I'm tired of platitudes and shallow "respect."

The Saints, over time, wore us down and broke us. By all means, I would not have been mad if Payton decided to score a TD. Hell, if we had stopped them it might have put some gumption into our guys on defense for this coming week, instead of going out with a whimper.
