No Foster who has a nose for the endzone? If he isn't hurt then Kubiak screwed that. Foster's lack of yard today has little to do with him and more to do with the line play. We've seen one hole today.

Aye the least athletic qb in the game. And if you can't one for one yard you deserve to lose.

Hervoyel
12-23-2012, 02:12 PM
And there they go. That slow-footed stumbling, bumbling, stunned.... I just can't find the words. I'm beginning to believe that the only reason the Houston Texans have ever won a playoff game is that Schaub was hurt and couldn't fold up like a cheap suit and lose it.

Jeez that guy is lousy. He's great against bad teams and teams that have injured key players. He can run off a mountain of yards against teams that aren't headed for the post-season. Against real competition he's **** on a stick

Just wondering where Kubiak got this reputation as a great play caller? When he won his three rings, Steve Young and John Elway were his qb's, not Matt Schaub. At times, it seems he can call great plays, but it's much too inconsistent. As much as was on the line today, this performance today is totally unacceptable.

Premier
12-23-2012, 02:14 PM

GuerillaBlack

Man, I still can't get over that play. We need a competent QB. One that has just a little athetlicism. Put in Yates, or Keenum. The pressure of getting the #1 seed is too much for Schaub. He can't handle it and is playing scared.

Once again Gary Kubiak whips out his enormous Man-gina and calls for a punt.

This game is lost. It has been lost for some time. You don't worry about losing the game by going for it in this situation. You take a chance that you might be able to pull off a miracle because the loss is already a reality.

That ****ing ***** coaching the team is the reason why they are all a bunch of *******. They're a reflection of him and he's always going to make the ***** move.

Yup. When you have first and goal from inside the one and have to settle for a FG, just doesn't breed confidence.

It's amazing that an offensive coach, who's had 6 years to put his system in place and has 6 Pro-Bowlers on his unit, can continually march this garbage out onto the field. This is the 4th week in a row the offense has been a complete no-show.

The problem with Shaub is he's a mirror image of his coach. When things line up perfectly, he does JUST ENOUGH. When the heat is on, he won't pull the trigger or misfires. I just want to see a little bit of aggressiveness from time to time. That being said, I like Shaub when we have a lead.

I wouldn't count on it. They'll be fired up like you won't believe to win one fro Pagano.

Right now I hate this team with a ****ing mortal passion. They're empty inside and completely devoid of any redeeming value. No heart to speak of. They know how important this game was. There's not a doubt in my mind but the lazy pieces of **** can't be bothered to execute the offense they've been practicing and using an entire year. They look like there isn't a single thing going on that they care about.

It's no wonder nobody ever believes in the Texans. They can't be believed in. They do nothing but fall short of expectations over and over again. They may not have a derrick on the side of their helmets but these guys are the spiritual successors to the Houston Oilers in every way possible.

They're in the set you up and knock you down business and business is good.

Clicking out of my illegal fuzzy stream now. What a stupid loss. So many chances. If we just had a better QB. Our D held them and held them, but the offense could never pull through and get a TD, even when they were on their own one yard line (five seconds without getting touched is too much time for Schaub so he goes backwards).

Nawzer
12-23-2012, 02:37 PM
Well that's the end of that. This team is going backwards. And if this keeps up I don't see us winning in Indy. It'll be one and done in the playoffs.

I wouldn't count on it. They'll be fired up like you won't believe to win one fro Pagano.

Right now I hate this team with a ****ing mortal passion. They're empty inside and completely devoid of any redeeming value. No heart to speak of. They know how important this game was. There's not a doubt in my mind but the lazy pieces of **** can't be bothered to execute the offense they've been practicing and using an entire year. They look like there isn't a single thing going on that they care about.

It's no wonder nobody ever believes in the Texans. They can't be believed in. They do nothing but fall short of expectations over and over again. They may not have a derrick on the side of their helmets but these guys are the spiritual successors to the Houston Oilers in every way possible.

They're in the set you up and knock you down business and business is good.

Sorry the sarcasm didn't come through on my post. Unless they fix their crap there is no way we win next week-it's a huge game for the Colts.

I'm off...I'm gonna let my wife watch the end of the Steelers/Bengals game-at least it's competitive.

Yates is just a younger Schaub. We got a real good look at his ability last season. He does not have the skill set of a qb like Luck or RG III. If you want a schaub like qb then stick with the experience. If you want change then Yates should always be a number 2. JMO

No, no he has not. What he did right there was shy away from taking a chance on salvaging this one. He showed us that he doesn't have the stones to try and turn this around. He didn't cause the loss.

I think kubiak calls plays based on what he believes his players can do.

I agree. That's probably my second biggest issue with Kubiak. If he's been building this team for 7 years and he doesn't have faith that they can do more, then there's a big failure on his part either in player selection and development or in being too much of a control freak.

Hours later and I'm still so pissed off I can't even believe it. I've never been so angry that I was actually short of breath. ****ing Texans I can't believe this ****! When they lose it's like they come out intent on seeing how loud they can make the fans boo them and you know they're getting ready to do this from the first series. The minute that drive stalled and the offense came off the field so Graham could kick the FG I could tell by the look on Schaub's half-stoned idiot face that it was going to be one of those days. You can see it in his eyes when he's not on. He looks lost or like he's trying to work some kind of problem out in his head that has nothing to do with the game he's playing.

I admit it. I am so sick of that mother****er and watching him play in slow motion. It's like watching old people **** for crying out loud. Everything is slow, deliberate, and careful. The guy couldn't make a play out of nothing to save his life. Just a robot piling up stats out there and some of you actually find that adequate. How did the end of that "Christmas Vacation" rant from Clark Griswold go? "Hallelujah! Holy ****! Where's the Tylenol?

That's how I feel right now.

My last hope for this team is that they just haven't been motivated recently.

What have the really been playing for that they can't secure by winning next week?

Other teams have been more desperate, had more on the line, and as we all know football is a game where emotion can make a big difference.

If that has been the case we will come out next week NEEDING to win to get a bye and we will get it done.

I like to listen to the post game radio shows after the game. We get to here from a lot of the players. Today, I heard Walter, Newton, Brown, Manning, Antonio & a few others.

I don't think motivation was the issue.

They can talk about motivation, but then is sub conscious cruising that happens to.

I'm interested to see how they look next week, see if HAVING to win makes a difference.

Hervoyel, I felt that way after the New England game. Couldn't see straight for a few hours after that game. Today's game was troubling, but that NE game pained me.
Texans just look lost lately. Can't really fault the defense all that much when they keep an opponent to 23 and your offense averages 28, but can only manage 6.

What really hurts is that we haven't played a defense worth a crap. These are pretty poor defenses that are putting the brakes on the #3 scoring offense in the league.

The defense even caused a turnover at the most opportune time for the Texans and they still couldn't get a TD out of it. Even when we won last week, that New England loss was still haunting me, and it this loss today just makes it worse.

Hmm, Ponders only had 176 yards; he has had 7 games better than this.
And the reason he didn't have to throw much in some games was because Peterson was doing a lot of damage.

This is a qb, wr league now. Those guys have been given a clear lane to make plays. Everyone has qb's that can make plays here and there.

The trick is

A) stopping them at least some if the time so you can B) put your offense on the field who should be able to capitalize more than theirs.

Even the most dominant defenses give up plays to all kinds of qb's. This is the NFL 2012. It's going to happen.

It's hard to judge a defense when they are on the field all day. We already know they are not the '85 Bears. This game was well within reach of any Div I offense.

Basically, the same thing I said. However, I'm sure klockWork is referring to the score (23 points to a pathetic offense), the fact that we allowed that offense to make some pretty long drives for scores, and the fact that we gave up over 100 yards rushing.

By Christian Ponder standard THAT is a great game. Considering he's on the road and without his best wide out and made some critical third & long conversion. Ever since they lost Percy Harvin, Ponder has one of the lowest qb rating in football. He was a below avg qb with Harvin to begin with. Without him he's scrub. The commentator also revealed Ponder never made a play over 20yds in over two games. He made three in this game alone. Yeah, you could argue that AP was tearing it up on the ground and that Ponder didn't need to make any big plays in those games. Watching those game on nfl rewind AP made a few big plays that gauded his rushing total. But for the most part he was being tackle near the LOS or for losses that setup 3rd and long. Ponder never made any big throw to help his offense on scoring drive. But in this game given the same opportunities the Texans D allow him those big plays.

Yes, 187 yds and 1 TD aren't big by todays nfl standard. But given the facts that he's without Harvin and on the road AND he's playing in a conversative game-management mode THOSE are big numbers.

It makes me mad hearing everyone say how great of a job our D play and that our offense deserve all the blame. Our D got half their job done in stopping Peterson but failed in stopping Ponder. They should deserve half the blame for this loss.

We have a good defense, not a great one. The defense played as well as should be expected. Take away half the possessions the Vikings had & their offensive numbers are more in line with what you are expecting.

If we had a great defense, we would take those possessions away by getting them off the field. As it is, we need our offense to do its part; stay on the field, score some points.

The defense played well enough to win that game if the offense would have done its part.
