Seriously..if you boys can sit there quietly and let the adults watch the game, maybe afterwards you can have graham crackers.
I've been through this Grid for 7 freakin years. I don't want to talk to you about it because you were here too and you know damn well it isn't "after one game". It's after 3 years with Kubiak. If you're so busy watching the game with the adults what pray tell prompted you to poke your head into a thread like this?
No, wait a second. Check that. It's after 7 years. 7 years with the Texans.
Ever wonder why the Texans ALWAYS give you exactly what you're afraid you're going to get from them? EVERY SINGLE ****ING TIME?
They suck. They're a team of soft, unfocused players who work for a franchise that hasn't learned anything in 7 years. Everything you suspect they might be in the negative... THEY ARE!
We have a head coach who is not getting the job done BUT HE GETS FOREVER TO TRY AND CHANGE THAT!
We have an offensive coordinator who we are told is on the cusp of greatness BUT IN REALITY HE'S A FAVOR-HIRE WHO GOT THE JOB BECAUSE OF HIS LAST NAME!
We have a defensive coordinator who was promoted form within because he's supposedly going to be a good one BUT HIS DEFENSE PLAYS JUST AS POORLY AS THE ONE HE REPLACED!
Look, Gary Kubiak is in his fourth year and his team does the same shit it did four years ago. They can't tackle to save their lives. They can't protect the QB to save his life. Sure his "kids" all love to play for him. Hell I'd love a job where the coaches never pushed me out of my comfort zone and paid me millions of dollars a year to try hard. Does anybody really think Studdard stays on anyone's roster but ours? Chris Meyers is like one of those big stuffed animals. I watched Jets just pitch him out of the way today. Pitts is "our best" and by NFL standards he's crap. Anyone thinking that Chester Pitts will ever go to a Pro Bowl without a ticket is insane. With players like this it's no wonder we can't keep Schaub from getting stomped.
Speaking of our QB he's absolutely worthless unless he's playing a team that can't pressure the QB in a game that doesn't matter between teams playing out the string. Then he's money but if the game is against somebody who can actually get to him he's shit. He has to be stored in bubble wrap all season long if you want him to play more than 10-11 games.
Andre Johnson is wasted here. He'll get a ring someday with luck but I think it's almost a foregone conclusion that it won't be in a Texans uniform.
These guys are embarrassing and I'm tired of pretending that they're not. Every single good team we played last year humiliated us. Every single good team we play this year will do the exact same thing.
Tell me when in 7 years we've beaten a good team in a game that mattered to both them and us? The answer is never because we can't do it.
The Texans are Lucy in "Peanuts" holding that football and urging us to take a shot at kicking it. That's what this franchise asking for our support amounts to. They're always going to jerk that ball away at the last second but we get in here and we get excited about their worthless wins and garbage time statistics and keep coming back for more. We're ****ing stupid to be guzzling down this kool-aid. Why do we keep falling for it? What the hell is wrong with us? Our eyes see what's wrong and we convince ourselves that "It's only preseason" or "Well yeah but those were cheap shots - he's not really fragile", or "When he gets older he'll be worth the pick".
I know better than all of that but I got suckered in again just like I always seem to do.
Meanwhile other teams hire real coaches and real GM's who put together teams that progress. Nobody goes from bad to good slower than the Houston Texans. Hell, we haven't done it once yet.
