Default Cry babies



I go out of town for thanksgiving, come back and see a whole bunch of threads of people just crying. Newsflash people, your team wasn't going to go 16-0 and I highly doubt they'll go 15-1.. which they're still on pace to pull off BTW. For the love of god, man up, suck up the tears and stop crying. In case anybody paid attention or not, the Texans won.

And before the "yeah buts" come in.. who gives a crap, how many times was Houston on the other side of that coin for almost a decade when they faced good teams? We're 10-1 and have managed to win two close games in overtime when we were tested. There is nothing to cry about.. at least not to this extent. Eat your leftover turkey and stop crying. If you want something to actually whine about, snap back to 2005.

Sadly I think it is almost like we talk about in the NSZ - folks pick a stance and then try to justify everything which happens after that to meet the stance. 90% of us see the warts. Then there are a few who hate Kubiak or Schaub and all rationality is gone as they take any opportunity for criticism.

I wonder how these folks predicted our record was going to be today.
I am 100% sure the Texans exceed their expectation by a few light years, but we know they are going to complain no matter what LOL

If you're going to politicize this thread and mix football with politics... The Obama administration = the Cowboys. all hype, media coverage/praise galore, and they'll promise you the world and show/give you big nice shiny things with no actual results/substance...and they fall short more often than not. Infact they spit the bit quite often when the pressure is on

Poor Texan fans...so busy gathering up their "this will make me feel better" comments and thoughts, they forgot to enjoy the game.

This season has been so freaking good. So satisfying to see the team on top. However, this season ends, Bob McNair deserves mad props for sticking to his guns and keeping Kubiak on board. Coach Kubes has these kids hustling. It is a joy to see.

He didn't name any political party, or any political figure like you did. I thought he was referring to the drug war.

You are 100% right. Most of our "fans" weren't fans 5 years ago. Before I respond to some of the comments on these boards I look at the post count. Low post count means most likely a bandwagon fan that doesn't deserve a response.

Hate to say it, but I agree. And what's really embarassing is that people from places like Boston, which probably cares more about hockey or basketball, understand football better than many people from Houston.
For example, I was at the Jags game in Reliant Sunday and fans were yelling and screaming like crazy when the Texans were on offense. And many of them arrive late after the KO, and leave early in the 4th quarter when the games outcome is clearly in doubt and maybe even headed for OT. Sorry, but there's really a lot of dumb-azz football fans in Houston, and I don't get it ?

This is true, like for instance, many knowledgeable football fans had this game marked as a possible L. Well, the Lions are still ranked 2 in Offense, but fell from 10 to 14 in defense yesterday. They are very similar to the 2010 Texans in that they are just missing a couple players to fill holes and maybe some better coaching personnel. How many games like this did we lose in 2010?

The lions are no chumps. Every game they have lost this year is by a touchdown or less. I expected an L, but hoped for the W. We got the W. Only four days after an overtime victory....so while everyone is getting all Chicken Little on us, I will relish this victory. Next weekend, I'll be in Tennessee, going into the belly of the beast, to watch the Texans come out and pound the Titans into submission. 10 days of rest, a whole week of resting J Jo, Tate, Cody...I mean lol at all you whiners. Cracks my stuff up. LEARN THE GAME!

EVERY team lays an egg. Green Bay has laid eggs this year. Buffalo gave NE all they could handle in their house. Atlanta and Arizona...what else, SF tied with freaking St. Louis...the Bears? Not looking so formidable anymore. Denver? They are hot right now, but we beat them in their house and the last time we faced Peyton Manning in ours...we won with a putrid defense. What you got? Who's going to flat out beat us when we come to play on both sides of the ball?

I'm happy with the 10-1 & all. I understand there's a lot more to it than just what goes on on the field & a lot of that stuff affects players & games & coaches, etc..

However just to play Devil's advocate.

If we played the Broncos & the Patriots the last two weeks and the games looked like that.... taking the best teams in the league to the wire, I think it would have gone over a lot better than having two of the worst teams nearly beat us.

We demolished the Ravens & barely beat the Jags at home.

If it were the Bears that took us to overtime & not the Jags, I think everything would be everything.

I mean some of us are using the fact that we played on Sunday as an excuse. Well, the Lions played Sunday. Yes, we played an extra qtr, but that was our fault, & shouldn't have happened.
