Default What do you want to see from the rest of the season?

Let's assume that there's not going to be any coaching/management change for the rest of this season (I think that's a safe assumption), but that we have no idea what will happen after the season (I think that's also a safe assumption). I'm wondering what it is that other folks hope to see from the remainder of the season. There was a time when I'd have said I just want to see them turn things around and win a few (preferably in a row). But, given my expectation levels going into the season, and my disappointment now, I almost don't care whether we win or lose.

For me, I think the one important thing is to determine if Keenum can be a franchise-level QB going forward. We are going to have a high (maybe very high) draft pick. This might be our best chance to pick up a franchise QB, and we need to know as much as possible whether we need one, or whether Keenum can be the centerpiece to lead us on.

Maybe it's the preseason optimism holding out, but I don't think our team is in as bad of shape as our record indicates (i.e. we have a lot of good players in place that should let us be competitive in the future). I doubt that we'll have this good of a draft pick in future years. If Keenum can be a long-term solution at QB who can lead us to the playoffs, we can spend our top draft pick to address another area. If he's not going to be that guy, I think we need to go all out (trading up if necessary) to get the best QB we can - one that we at least think can be a SB-winner in the future. I don't care about much else (OK, people staying healthy) than this at this point. I'm curious if others have different ideas?

I want to see Keenum develop, obviously. I want to see how Swearinger and Hopkins do. I want to see Derek Newton fired. I want to see the rest of the league recognize that JJ Watt is still the best defensive player in football. I want to see AJ get double digit TDs for the first time ever.

Default Re: What do you want to see from the rest of the season?

I totally agree with you on Keenum. I would also like to see what some of the other young players like, Brandon Harris, Crick, Braman, Tuggle, Pleasant, and Dennis Johnson play more to see if they are worth keeping or if they need to upgrade. Since the season is lost they need to evaluate the talent level not just keep doing the same thing over an over and expecting a different result is insane.

Default Re: What do you want to see from the rest of the season?

I don't really want to see anything else from this team this season. I switched to watching NFL Red Zone on Sundays a few weeks ago, and don't care to go back. I'd rather watch the best parts of other games than the Texans. If there is no management change this offseason, I won't care much at all going into next season. I can't imagine seeing Schaub start again in 2014. That honestly seems too incomprehensible for me to consider.

Default Re: What do you want to see from the rest of the season?

honestly

I want them to play better but still lose out, at this point winning is just useless

I want to see the young players grow and the veterans step up in key moments

I want to see everyone healthy untill the end

I want to see those that will be free agents next year play like crap (someone has to suck in order to lose games, so I would like them to be the ones)

basically I want to have some fun watching games

I want to see what players should stay and which ones should go.

Default Re: What do you want to see from the rest of the season?

I want to see Keenum continue to grow and to lock down the QB position enabling the Texans to spend their resources fixing other areas of the team. I'd like to see the starting corners show up and the line get its act together for the remainder of the year.

Mostly though it's about Keenum getting playing time and improving. Some people say that if Kubiak is gone then Keenum won't get a shot because a new coach will want his own QB. I say that this is an owner who hired Kubiak more or less on the condition that he answer the question "Can we win with David Carr?" in the affirmative.

I don't want to see Keenum show well enough for McNair to hold the next coach to using him. I want him to show well enough for the next coach to want to use him. McNair will do the rest.

Fans weren't cheering injuries.. they were cheering the fact that a new QB was coming in, it just looked bad because the damn head coach didn't have the stones to pull Schaub out when he should have and it took a injury to get someone else in there... and fans boo in every NFL city in this country. Fans boo in just about every sports city in this country and around the world, it's nothing unique to NY or Philly.. or Houston, or even America.

That's your version. I think a more reasonable one is some cheered the injury and even more cheered the new QB coming in.

I wish you had spent the equivalent of your kids college tuition and had to watch this crap every Sunday in the same seats. Let me tell you something, my wife is a huge Texans fan (Not a football fan) and if the same crap that happened last Sunday happens again (She wants to see if Case is the future) I am going to have a hard time justifying my season tickets. It's never a good thing for the wives to be pissed.

BTW, I'm a 10 yr season ticket holder.
