Default Re: What will it take to make you feel better about this team?

Is it being realistic to go from winning your first ever playoff appearance to a Super Bowl appearance the following year? Has that ever even been done before?

I submit that many of you are wound way too tight and think that expecting a quality product means miracles. That going from 10-6 to 12-4 and winning the division and making the playoffs a second straight year is not an improvement. Hell many of you probably do not have as much passion, or put as much into your kids education as you do heaping your over inflated expectations on the Texans.

Am I happy with the way the team collapsed in the final weeks? Of course not. Will the world end because of it? No.

It seems to me that some of you cannot enjoy life and celebrate the good things and move on, and in fact you take it one step further. You trash your own team in some bizarre attempt to influence the powers that be into taking actions on your perception of the teams problems. You are miserable and you want everyone else to be miserable also, because that supports your mental state and justifies your spineless attitude regarding your team.

You all rag on Schaub when he hangs his head after a bad series and sits on the bench and then turn around and do the exact same thing in here. Hanging your head, whining "woe is me" why is this happening to me? Why does my team suck?!

Perhaps your memories are so short that you have forgotten what it means to have a losing record every season... heck perhaps you have even forgotten what it felt like to have no NFL franchise to cheer for, to tailgate at, to love and to hate.

Perhaps you would feel better if Houston had no NFL franchise? Then you could focus all of your rage and hypocritical hysteria on more simpler things in life without having to worry about that horrible NFL franchise always bringing you down.

Get A Grip... Go Texans!

You sir, are stupid. You come to a forum knowing full well what to expect. Fans either elated or pissed depending on the last games outcome. Your critical of fans who care and their opinions, and then pass your golden opinion off as if it's scripture from the mountain top. Your pissed because after 11 seasons we dont settle for a trash performance? Your pissed because after showing how talented and dominant this team can be, the team has begun to play like it's a perennial loser again? 2 months ago our team was brutalizing competition. The players, coaches, and scheme havent changed and we expect more from them because they TAUGHT us to expect more. Just once in my life I want to know what rooting for a superbowl champion feels like. If you think being overly critical is a problem for us fine. I think settling for sub par play and mediocrity in your team is also a deep seated problem with anything you do. We b*tch because we care. If you can't cope with that, don't come to a message board.
