It would have been more of the same.

This offense needs to get clicking... don't need to be blaming the Wave, they've been together for 3 years but are behind development when compared to the defense.

They've had 8 games to get it together, sure Andre is out, but you've still got three probowlers on offense. All skill players & an offensive guru pulling the strings.

The offense should be playing better, period.

Why is everyone down on waves?



They're awesome. I wouldn't want to see one at a football game. But, they're really cool.

Or this wave, especially with a Grand Marnier Floater.

So if we score a bunch of points and it still happens are you going to stick with your theory?

I'll still give them a standing o when they do the Army Strong thing, but it kinda cheapens it for me now.
Of course they advertise. And their advertising isn't aimed toward the type of kid who's already going to college or is in college. It's "hey you young person watching sports who has no idea what to do with his life. you can make something of yourself by joining the army."

Secondly, due to the lack of televised games of soccer (though I have FSC) AFL and rugby in this country, I have to settle with watching the Texans and really paying attention more than I usually do (thanks to David Stern for this as well).

Now, let me cut to the chase. What the Texans did last Sunday was not winning football. If you play a team who is actually worth the checks they get than the Texans would lose. They were so lucky that the Jags offensive players are imbeciles. Winning football doesn't always equate to wins. All winning football means is you playing in the fashion that gives young solid chance for victory. Winning the game itself isn't a given. I've watched the Texans tank in the past couple of years and I sat back and laugh. That was entertaining to see a team throw a good start out the window. Now, by mean saying that people will assume I'm a Texans hater but they haven't even done anything to make me want to put an effort into hating them. I rather see them do well than do bad.

Yes, if I spent over 300 dollars in tickets (which I have). Does that mean I have to settle for a win as entertainment. I guess so but I will give Texans fans a pass considering that the team hasn't really gave the fanbase much to be happy about. Every time they win a riot ensues. I've seen ugly wins. Yeah, they won but I fell asleep due to the offensive incompetence. There's defensive forcing errors and unforced errors. They were plenty of both to go around last week. So yeah they won but I wasted 300 bucks but good thing I didn't need to scratch up every dime and nickel for that. Just go spend 400 bucks the next home game.

I read an interesting article somewhere recently that basically made the point that a team coming back to win carries more psychological weight in the minds of fans than simply winning by a non blowout margin.

So, for example, when the Ravens come back against the Cardinals they are praised for being gritty, for making adjustments, for Flacco, Boldin, and Rice being able to raise their game when it counts. If they had just won that game 30-27 without having to come from behind then everybody would be talking about how the Ravens are overrated because they can't blow out a bad team.
