What ive gathered: Tate is the devil, Case is a savior and the one that hurts me the most... Nobody will be buying Texans Tackle Crackle anytime soon.
Wow, such stunning insight. You should look into a career as an analyst.

Since you obviously haven't noticed, you're on a team FAN board. Might want to get your context right.

Fans are free to boo and cheer as they wish, obviously, but booing while the team is on offense is a dumb thing to do.
In a vacuum, you'd be right. (Granted this team is sucking so hard right now it FEELS like a vacuum)

Who cares if he expressed displeasure about the team (actually his teammate) being booed by the fans? Of course he didn't like it and of course he made a judgment about those that engaged in it. He is a human. Don't you see the irony? I thought fans wanted players to be candid and honest.. Oh, I guess that's only if they say something the fans want to hear.
Evidently Rico isn't the only one missing where he's posting.

You're making the assumption that putting in Schaub makes a win likely at all.
