I read a postgame quote from Duane Brown, and he said something to the effect that "the intensity just wasn't there." How in the heck can you not be intense with what was at stake?

Meh, I think this is just him thinking out loud while still trying to figure out what went wrong. I bet he couldn't tell you WHO lacked intensity.

I have been looking for the transcript of the post game but no luck yet

I was honestly waiting to hear "it's on me"

Please burn your segways and letterman jackets.
Absolutely pathetic, inept, shameful showing from the offense!

I saw DB thrown a grown man into the ground like he was a ragdoll on a screen play this afternoon. Duane Brown seemed like he came to play. I think he got blown up on at least one pass play, but I think he's speaking about others in this case.

Didn't mean to insinuate he was speaking about himself- should have been more clear...just thought it strange that anyone would come to play without intensity. Of course, like was said earlier, maybe he was just trying to collect his thoughts.

This team is shellshocked. They're struggling, and they have no idea how to fix their issues. It looks like they're perplexed out there.

Either that . . or they are just not really that good. Sorry, I can't go with the "lack intensity" or "perplexed" or "struggling" or "shellshocked" excuses for the last 5 or 6 weeks in a row.

The more accurate word is . . . . exposed.

I'd agree if they weren't moving the damn ball (for example), only to get clowned when they reach the 35.

Whatever the Texans had in the early part of the season they've lost. I was hoping they'd find it today, but they didn't. This season is over. We can still beat the Bengals and get a road trip to New England, but that'll end it for this year.

I think part of the problem is that in 2 seasons, once we have clinched the division we have not won a regular game. We race to get into the playoffs and then step off the gas. We had no adversity early on and now we are facing it. We need to come together as a team or we will be 1 and done

Now wait a minute. I got called out saying we were being petty when talking about the letter jackets and Segways last week. After all they are not football monks. (I believe that was the term used.)

The guy throwing the ball. The guy calling plays.

Amazing how you put blame all on one player especially when the player in question got owned all game long. Duane Brown said himself the intensity wasn't there. I saw that with my own eyes. This entire offense didn't play with any intensity other then AJ and Foster. It damn sure wasn't just Schaub though. That is the result of a HC who can't get his guys ready to play.

That reminds me of 2 years ago when the season ended at 6-10. Kubiak in his press conference admitted that he had no idea how to fix what was wrong. The man said "I don't know" when point blank asked what he could do to turn things around. He was truly defeated, lost and at that time probably figured he was fired anyway so was brutally honest.

I thought that presser sealed his fate. Now it appears that we are back there again. The man is clueless and the team is just as perplexed as he is.

This is the time when having a real head coach would come in handy.

I'm still angry he wasn't fired after that year.

You're right Thorn. But I doubt that we can beat the Bengals. We'll be looking at New England and conceding the loss. I really feel sorry for a handful of our players: AJ, JJ, Foster, Daniels and a few more. They gave 100% effort.

I agree. Especially your last sentence.

As I have said in other threads, I don't see Kubiak getting excited about a damned thing. Stand there on the sidelines with the play card in his hand looking completely lost. He's not capable of taking this team to the next level. Where's the friking emotion?

I'm so sick of Foster right, Foster draw, Andre Johnson or Owen Daniels hail marys. If it's not on Kube's play card.....don't change it or improvise whatever you do!

Here is something Antonio Smith said that I saw in an article in the chron. Draw your own conclusions from it but I to me it screams a team lacking leadership and I always believe it first begins at the top:


“It’s like you get used to doing something one way, and then it automatically becomes tougher,” defensive end Antonio Smith said. “The things you’re used to doing so easy get a little bit harder, but you’re going into it with the same mind frame, expecting the same outcomes. Teams are coming to play us with a whole other mind frame. I could feel it out there on the field. A whole other intensity. We’ve got to find that same thing.”

They've always had a crappy red zone offense.

In fairness, Tom Coughlin said the same thing about his team's annual swoon in November...sometimes you know the answer, just can't tell the press b/c it would mean throwing player(s) under the bus.
