Good question. But I know that Smith puts a good product on the field. I know that players love Kubiak. The questions is why it doesn't all come together. Maybe Kubiak needs to grab some jerseys (or better yet, neckties of coaches) and scream in some faces. I'm not pleased with what I saw of the team today. But because of the past 2 years, the offense gets a 1-game pass. The defense, however, has been "upgraded" every year for years and still stinks it up. Frank Bush promised an aggressive attack of the quarterbacks, yet only rushed the front four for 99% of the game today against a ROOKIE. That is just head-scratching. You bring the HOUSE on a rookie QB in his first game. Anything less is pathetic. I now question - as I did Richard Smith before him - Bush and his pathetically lame rush-only-your-front-four defense. You don't have a good enough front four to do that, DESPITE 3 wasted draft picks on that position.

Kubiak has 7 more games to prove to me he can win. After that, I'm done. And even that is probably too much leniency.

In this thread and in others I've seen people mention that we might finish the first quarter of the season with a 1-3 record as oppposed to the 3-1 that we'd all hoped for. I find myself wondering what makes so many people think we can beat the Oakland Raiders. Last time I saw them they were using the Texans like Kleenex and the Texans were predictably doing nothing about it.

0-4 is coming my friends. 0-4 is coming.

HaHaHa - We decline. We're just going to beat their ass. It's cool.

On a crappy day - that post deserves rep.

Refund? Hell, I'd be happy if they just didn't raise the prices again. Its seems like every year, no matter how bad the team is, I pay a little bit more for tickets.

last time I checked, the main part of the game to win is the scoreboard. The Texans weren't in the game yesterday and really not in control of any facet of the 3 hour exercise as far as I can tell.

Yep and I think I am beginning to get de-sensitized. We are in big trouble next week.

For some reason I am just stupid enough to think we have a chance still against Jax and Oakland, I really don't know why I can even think that way after yesterday's heartless display. 0-2 is un-avoidable IMO. Maybe Kubes thinks it is still preseason?

Shanhan Maybe
Shanahan is not worth firing Kubiak this year for. Maybe after his contract is up if Shanny is still available and Kubes still hasn't shown anything. The only coach I really see that would truly be a better option than Kubiak right away is Cowher. And I think Cowher is only interested in a team like the Giants (big-market, deep pockets, great defense already in place), not a small market team like the Texans.

My 7 yo son asked me if it would be o.k. to root for another team. He assured me that it would not be the Titans or Cowboys. He just wants to be a fan for a winning team, and I can't say that I blame him. The Texans have sucked his entire life. I think he's leaning towards the Steelers. I've got nothing to convince him otherwise. That's just sad.

that is truly sad to hear, db....but i don't blame the boy. at least he knows not to support the Titans. Maybe push him towards the Saints. They are somewhat regional and they are not conference foes of the Texans...not as if the Texans are ever relevant to the Steelers..but still.

He said he'll always root for the Texans (mainly because of me), but he saw/heard enough of me and my buddy yesterday to be convinced that this team has some deep issues to fix. He watched the Steelers beat the Titans last Thursday, so they are on his mind (and they're the reigning champs).

I'm not sure I want him to see next week's game against Tennessee based upon that pathetic performance from yesterday. Evacuate the women and children in times of disaster is my mantra. I've seen this sinking ship before....unfortunately.

I understand what you're going through, DB. My son isn't much of a fan of the Texans either. I think he enjoys the Bears the most because of their defense. He played LB in Jr High so he watched a lot of Urlacher. That was when Brian was kickind butt and in his prime. I try to tell him how much better D-Ryans is compared to Brian (now), he ain't having any of it.

I don't blame him either
