Default Boycott?

What if Gary names Matt the starter for this Sunday ... would it send a message to McNair if everyone just decided not to go to the game? Yes, I understand some people have spent a lot of money and have been waiting for a chance to go to the game live. But what power do we as fans have other than numbers we generate? Without fans, there are no professional sports. Therefore without us, there is no Houston Texans. McNair needs to understand something that Bud never did. We appreciate that we have professional football in Houston, but we as fans have the right to support the team, or walk away if things are being mismanaged. Somehow, someway, we should make it known that we don't just expect a team in Houston ... we expect a winner. I don't follow this team and buy tickets and gear to help inflate McNairs bank account, I want to be proud of the team that bears the name of the city and state I was born in. Time for the owner to give us something to be proud of. Time for Bob McNair to insist on putting the best product on the field, and that equation does include Matt Schaub.

I don't see a boycott as a way to fix this, besides McNair is more astute than you may be giving him credit for.

Not saying it would fix anything, just send a message.

Let our voices be heard in a way that couldn't be denied.

Sigh. This is what happens to a fan base/city that has seen 40+ years of futility I guess.

To each their own, and each fan has a right to do with whatever they want with their tickets. But it just seems around here that everyone thinks we have the next Tom Brady or Kaepernick just sitting around on our bench ready to go.

Who knows, maybe Yates or Keenum can lead us to the promise land and would give us a better chance to win in the long run, and I wish I thought that were the case. And I totally understand that there is only one way to find out, and maybe a benching is just what Schaub needs.

But a "boycott" started as a thought on a message board aint gonna accomplish much of anything in the grand scheme of things.

I think a lot of people misinterpret why a lot of fans want to see Yates or Keenum at QB. I don't think the majority of us think Yates or Keenum will lead the Texans to the promised land. It's more about being frustrated at the blind loyalty of Kubiak and we have now seen Schaub $hit his pants one too many times.

Also, how do we know IF Yates or Keenum have anything of value if they don't get a shot? People act like NO back ups have ever become successful starters which is exactly what Schaub was. A backup before getting a shot and actually being good until the end of last year.

As for the boycott, it won't happen and I would still go to the game if I had tickets.

Don't talk about it. Do it. I haven't bought game tickets, concessions, or Texans gear (with the exception of a couple of jerseys for my kids last Christmas*) since Kubiak was extended. Does my action make any difference to Texans Inc.? Not in the least; they could not care less about the loss of my business. However, I don't feel hypocritical about my complaining about the team, and there are many other uses for my entertainment dollar.

Not necessary. McNair would have to be one of the biggest idiots and completely ignorant to not know the fanbase's feeling currently. And quite honestly, he's none of those things. He knows the feelings and the waves being cause right now. No one is oblivious to it. It's in the local media and national media. They spoke about it on the Daniel Manning show and so forth. So boycotting to make a point already established is not worth it. I rather we still support our team despite our frustrations and cheer them on. There are more players on the team than just Schaub and they do deserve us having their back.

I think this is a good idea - you should do it.

I actually gave up my seats after last year because of our insistence on keeping Matt. Unlike most on this board who have been riding Matts jock all these years, and are just now voicing their displeasure with him because it is the popular thing to do, I always saw what he really was. Never liked the trade that we made to get him, and always knew he was an immobile, inaccurate, weak armed back-up. So to your point ... I did ... a year ago.

Exactly! And boycott the New England game too. I'll be happy to get rid of the tickets for you.

Don't like it? LEAVE.
No on is forcing you to watch. LEAVE.

Instead we get to endure a dumb thread like this. Hell I'm boycotting reading anything you post. That's my stand.
