Exactly. With all the hype at the end of last year, the expectations of Shaub's return and the fan base growing from game to game, anything less than the AFC championship will be unacceptable as far as most fans are concerned.
When we come out flat against Miami for almost the whole first half, people will boo because we can NOT afford to do that against the upper echelon of teams. When we get backed into our own endzone by a far inferior team considering who we are supposed to be, people will boo.
It's just the nature of the expectations that fans have built up over the past couple of years. Being a Texan fan of old, I'm still very nervous if we don't have a comfortable 2 score lead. I will cheer my head off when we do good, but the fans should let the coach have it when the playcall is subpar. This is not the YMCA, it is the NFL.
