Well, somebody should've hid my remote yesterday. It's now destroyed.

I sent my wife to the game with my ticket yesterday and I was really upset that I couldn't go before game time. Now....Eh, not so much. I'd hate to imagine what would've taken the place of my remote.

Don't know where you're going with that but its not an 'excuse'... It's an 'observation' made by many here.

All I meant was that its depressing as heck to live in a city where we can lose by 4 after being up 17 with 4 minutes to go and people can honestly say "Its not the worst this team has done to us"

This is pathetic. All this acceptance of losing makes me want to puke. That whole mentality has permeated this team from the very top right down to the fans.

All the rest of you can pretend that it's all sunshine and light, but we just were made a lauighingstock for all the world to see - again.

Exactly what will it take for some of you people to wake up and stop supporting this trash? Until we do, Mcnair is just going to roll out the same old shit on bread and pass it off as filet mignon.

Porky, I agree with you. Groundhog Day acceptance of every year turning out the same while someone says "you work hard" with a slap on the back is not inspiring. I hate Dicky Justice but he said something today like.."would Jerry Jones accept this?" I know most hate the Boys but being a Boys fan, this stuff wouldn't be widely accepted. Seats are empty and this whole "we're almost there" mentality is for losers. Supporting a team doesn't mean unapologetic acceptance of crap. You can be displeased and still be a fan.

What next? We get to hear how we can "wreck havoc" with potential playoff teams?

It's the loser mentality that permeates this franchise. I'm not going to stop being a Texans fan, but I'm not going to be a happy Texans fan at the moment. Anyone want to call me out on that can kiss my 0-4 a to the double ss.

This team lacks the ability to seal the deal. Sage is responsible for yesterday's debacle, without a doubt. But why did he feel the need to go above and beyond and be a playmaker with a 10 point lead and only 3 minutes left in the game? Was he trying to compete for the starting job, or is something deeper about the mindset of being a Texan right now? And while I'm not blaming Kubiak, why did he call a bootleg instead of just running the ball like 98% of teams out there would do to eat some clock and force Indy to use their last timeout?

I was entertained for 3 hours of competitive football. That's all I ask of my football team. Winning is just a bonus.

you play to win...the game. Who plays Chess for a stalemate? Why even keep score since everyone is a winner?

My two pennies. (I think I say this once or twice every year.)

It's football. I love winning as much as the next guy. I've played sports competitively for the majority of my life.

But the Texans? They're not "my team." I'm not out there on the field with them and I have zero influence into how they play the game. I support them, yes. I want them to win. I watch them regularly. I celebrate when they win and it irritates me when they find ways to lose.

But at the end of the day, football is entertainment and when it's no longer entertainment, I'll find something else to do with my time.

I can understand the anger coming from folks who spend thousands of dollars a year on season tickets, memorabilia and the rest of it and are receiving an 0-4 return on that investment ... although I'm willing to bet that a lot of the complainers on here don't. I can't put that kind of money into it, but for those who feel that's a good use of their hard-earned dime, I can understand that anger.

Me personally? If the game sucks, change the channel.

I'm not putting any one down, just adding my view to the fray.
