Default Believers... check in!

That's right... I'm still a believer! I'm tired of all the negative posts around here. Call me an optimist, a sunshine pumper, naive, stupid, idiotic... I don't care! I still believe we can win it all, regardless of who our QB is.

I see an offense that can move against the league's best defenses, a defense that can dominate, and a special teams that can... (ok, I won't get carried away with the optimism). We are losing because of mental mistakes, not because the other team is better or more talented. Mistakes can be fixed!

The 2010 Packers started off 3-3, the 2011 Giants started off 6-6, and we all know how their season's ended.

So chime in if you still believe! I can't be the only one.

(This may be the shortest thread in TT history!)

I believe we'll win the AFC South.

I believe we'll be in the AFC Championship game.

I believe Matt will throw a pick 6 on the first passing play of the game & the Texans will not be able to recover.

I believe in Schaub. If he can shred the Seattle #1 defense to take the texans to 20-3 at halftime, then He can do anything. He is just going through a rough patch. I hope we win the superbowl and make all the haters look dumb.

I believe you are going to owe me some $$$$.

I also believe 8 yrs are enough. Of course I wouldn't be in this situation because I would've fired Gary after 2010.

So start up with the stats and same old tired excuses. But this team is what it is and that's far from the SB contender that they were claiming themselves to be. In short the 2013 Houston Texans are a fraud. There I said it.

Let me give you a stat you can chew on since your a stat guy.

The Houston Texans are 4-7 in the last 11 games they've played. This yr they look like a team that is resting on its past laurels to me.

I prefer to look at it as 10-6, 12-4, & 2-3. When we were losing we weren't allowed to take the last 4 games of the previous season & add it to the first 4 games of the new season.

No need to start changing rules again. Only thing that matters now, are the next 11, not the last unless you like to wallow in misery.

Meh... I'm a believer.

Not just this season, but every season with the Texans but including going back to the Oilers.



I look at it this way......

2 of the 3 Texans losses were out of conference (which has nothing to do with tie-breakers). The only conference loss was out of division (and yes, it is a conference loss).

Right the ship!! That's it!!!!


And for the love of all that is Holy, this Sunday don't boo when Schaub throws the ball away for an incompletion. Boo when he makes a bone-headed play.

BTW for some of you people: Throwing the ball away is not necessarily a bone-headed play. Sometimes, that's a smart play.

Well he does have to throw the ball at or near the line of scrimmage which at times gets interesting with Mr. Schaub I love it when a smart QB throws the ball away, just get it there at least, and with some zip right outta bounds, not a sleepy feather just floating in the wind inside the field of play.

Unfortunately that rules out any 5 step drops. Because after 4 steps Noodles can no longer throw past the line of scrimmage.
