We are in our 11th year in the league. We finally made the playoffs last year and won a playoff game along with our division.

Superbowl was the talk before the season. Superbowl is still the talk before and after cushing went down. The afc is very weak this season. The football gods wrecked baltimore. New England is not the power house it once was. Neither is pittsburg and the rest of our division is rebuilding.

As long as we dont suffer any more game changing injuries, EVERYTHING IS LINING UP FOR US TO GO TO THE BIG GAME.

This is the year for Kubiak & Schaub to prove the naysayers wrong.

ITS TIME FOR A SUPERBOWL APPEARANCE.

Anything less is uncivilized.

Yes, we are 5-0, but it looks like fool's gold to me. We havent played anybody that you can say is a great team. We should beat Green Bay but the pack are not the same and are injured. Baltimore should provide a stiff test but i feel like we have to beat the patriots in order for our greatness to be verified.

Still refuse to believe that Walter and Jackson deserve to be on the field? By the way, you asked for responses to your well thought out 10 points, I responded in your thread, and you never answered. Sounds like you just want to spout your nonsense around for the sake of riling people up to me.

walter prior to this season had been a very underwhelming #2 wr. Jackson is still getting burned and called for PI what seems like every week.

its not unreasonable to ask for some adjustments like seeing what other players can do like martin or jean (before he got injured) and carmichael and harris on defense.

kevin walter always does this. has a big game then disappears the rest of the season but the defense is always he's a great runblocker.

Switzer inherited a Cowboys team that had just won two Super Bowls.

Kubiak took over a 2-14 team.

The only similarities is that both Switzer and Kubiak are NFL head coaches for teams in Texas.

As the subject, SB should be the goal every season, but let's not forget that there are 32 teams in the league, and 31 will be disappointed at the end of the season. All I can ask for is that they take care of things in their control, and if they do that, they'll go far in the playoffs.

If they come home with the AFC Championship, the party will never stop.

It's not easy to get to the playoffs, and my view is that any team that has reached the playoffs at the end of the regular season has had some degree of success that year. Andy Reid has never won the Super Bowl, but he has done a good job of getting his team to playoff party.

If the Texans make the playoffs, that's a degree of success. If they advance to the AFC Title game, or the Super Bowl, even better.

With all due respect, this is where I disagree with the New liberal age, "Everyone's a winner" type of philosophy. The WHOLE point of a sports season, be it football, basketball, whatever, is to get that ring. If you come up short, then you have failed. Sure, there are time's were teams rebuild and don't even sniff the playoffs, but the point of the rebuilding is to strive for a championship.

Why do teams like Dallas, Pittsburg, Green Bay, etc have such a big following? Because they have achieved the pinnacle of success in football. You can take your moral victories, I'll take a Lombardi Trophy.

Do you honestly think any true competitor goes home with his team getting a conference or division title and is satisfied with that? I would hope not.

I'm just happy to be along for the ride, regardless of how far we get this season. I really enjoy watching this team, on both sides of the ball. I look forward to the game all week long...since I started following these boys they have repaid my spectating with some moments of brilliance and some thrilling performances, and a few frustrating moments too (notwithstanding that awful packers game recently).. So, I'm on board, enjoying the ride and certainly won't feel that it's been an unsuccessful season if we don't make a SB app. The way I see it this team could make it to the SB this season, next season or the season after as long as we stay healthy, keep most our key players, make a few of good draft upgrades. The future looks bright ... :texans:

No kidding. In the first link you posted is this absolute GEM:
Well tim tebow became available and it only took some middle round draft pick to acquire him. What would make the texans a instant hot topic? TEBOW. How good would this team be with a tebow package running the wildcat and option with this O line and foster/tate combo?

In conclusion, the texans front office for our majority of history has been gutless. Look at bill belicheck. Took a chance on randy moss. Took a chance on albert haynsworth. Did it work out? Yes and No, but the point is THEY TOOK A CHANCE.

TEBOW? TEBOW? Randy Moss? Haynsworth? especially lol@ did it work out? Yes and No.

/end existence. Never, ever ever ever ever, talk about football again. Become a fan of the WNBA and move on man.

LOL so he was banned after all!

No wonder he is over here now.

Not gonna lie though, I have never seen a user get banned from here. I've only been here for a year, but is it somewhat rare to get banned from this site?

There's been a couple but I think it's more for starting like spam advertisement threads and spamming private messages.

It's rare but it has happened a few times since I have been around.

It's not as unusual as you might think.
You rub the wrong mod/admin the wrong way...or flame a certain 1/2 african american politician for his views on abortion during a particularly volitile election/campaign season...it can happen.

But I really wouldn't know anything about that sorta thing...

No you wouldn't, please look at this pen and think about those years you were traveling abroad with no internet. Yeah, that was a great time to backpack through Europe! You saw the Eiffel tower AND the leaning Tower of Pisa? Lucky you!

With all due respect, this is where I disagree with the New liberal age, "Everyone's a winner" type of philosophy. The WHOLE point of a sports season, be it football, basketball, whatever, is to get that ring. If you come up short, then you have failed. Sure, there are time's were teams rebuild and don't even sniff the playoffs, but the point of the rebuilding is to strive for a championship.

Why do teams like Dallas, Pittsburg, Green Bay, etc have such a big following? Because they have achieved the pinnacle of success in football. You can take your moral victories, I'll take a Lombardi Trophy.

Do you honestly think any true competitor goes home with his team getting a conference or division title and is satisfied with that? I would hope not.

Completely agree. The Texans are past moral victories, they're sitting at the big boy table now. Anything less than a Super Bowl Win is failure.

Now, that doesn't mean we need to blow everything up if we don't get to the AFC Championship game, but I fully expect us to get there & win it.

If I'm McNair & the Texans get to, but don't win the Super Bowl, I'll be on Kubiak's arse that afternoon wanting answers. I won't be celebrating, it's not going to be an, "awe shucks, we're #2"

We should have gotten all the celebrating crap out of the way 2 weeks earlier when we won the AFC Title.

Especially if he loses to Harbaugh, or Luvy, or any other coach who has yet to show they know how to win a Super Bowl.

I think we have to keep in mind that it's unfair for the Texans organization to deal with the frustrations of so many old Oilers fans. To a lot of us, it feels like we've been waiting 30, 40, or more years for this team to win a SB, but they've only been in existence for 10. Most 10 or 11 year franchises are just now started to make the playoffs. The early success of Jax and Carolina, who had many more advantages starting off, makes them look bad too.

Would be awfully nice if they'd just make it all a moot point by winning it all this year. Wade has a chance to help finish what his daddy started and just go ahead and bust the door in.

Good points.

That's a double-edged sword. On the one hand, the Texans have enjoyed tremendous financial success and over a decade of straight home game sellouts as a result of putting a franchise in a city that is passionate about football. No. 1 tailgating city in America speaks to that passion. McNair has created a first class organization in every aspect that he can control, and we clearly have a classy franchise in so many ways.

However, the other side is those fan expectations and hopes that have been around for decades, along with the heartbreak and hair-trigger tendencies when a fan base is disappointed. We have a collective memory as old Oilers fans. Everyone shares that "feeling" about a certain game in Buffalo, very similar to "where were you when" big events have happened.

That being said, I can only imagine the sheer joy of millions of Houstonians if/when this franchise makes it to a Super Bowl. I remember everyone being friends during the Rockets championship runs. But football? We'd be like a massive family for a month in this city. It would be a beautiful thing.
