Maybe we can pick up Antrel Rolle or a left tackle, because unless some of the changes that were addressed previously are down, this season is over!!
Sorry Pittbull, but that isn't what I would call trying to stay positive. You act as if they should just cancel the rest of the season, and look forward to next April's draft. If you do that, you are setting yourself up for more disappointment because as previous drafts have shown, it won't turn out the way you want.

The reason why you should stay positive is this. Turnovers are the reason why the team is 0-2. You can talk all day long about 'fire and emotion', you can talk all day long about Capers being a conservative coach, you can talk all day long about 'Palmer hindering the development of the offense'. But the simple fact still remains. If the Texans hadn't had all those turnovers, you'd be standing in line trying to buy playoff tickets instead of moaning about how this season is a lost cause.

Turnovers are a conversation killer. But things like 'play-calling' and Capers conservative philosophy' can make you pound on that keyboard all day long.
