This is one of the worst threads I have seen in a while. I honestly think we should do a "Worst Thread of the Season" poll after the season. Actually, I am going to set that up. PM me nominations throughout the season, and I will create the poll after the Texans' season is over.

I don't want to read too much into it. However, this thread is probably a by-product of the mindset of the team sometimes.

It seems like this HC lacks a killer instinct. When the Texans get ahead, they do not go for the throat, but seem content to ride out the clock and play a percentage game with "safe" plays.

So, perhaps it is a foreign concept to the OP to see a team with a true killer instinct who never lets up until the clock strikes 0:00, because we rarely see such an attitude from the Texans. It has happened (for those that want to give individual examples), but those are exceptions and not indicative of the general attitude of the team.

We have some players with this attitude, but as a team, it is lacking the general mad dog mindset.

DB, this exactly why Kubiak does not have a killer instinct. He would not want to hurt the feelings of the other team and have their fans make unflattering comments about him on a message board.

While it IS nice to win on the road, it's MUCH better to do it later in the season when wins are at a premium. Better to finish strong than to start strong.

More like 32 1/2 minutes. Texans controlled the game until the pick 6...then the wheels came off.

There was nearly four minutes to go in the game.

We were down by three scores. Weirder crap has happened over the history of the league than to lose a game when you were up by 18 in the fourth quarter. Two TDs with the associated 2-pt conversion and now they're only a FG away from a loss.

You DO recall they scored 14 pts in a two minute stretch just before halftime, right? So a quick 14-pt (or 16 if we go for two both times) is possible. Not probable the way we sucked but possible.

So yeah, I totally see Harbaugh choosing to make it a 21 point lead instead of a 18-pt lead. From a certain viewpoint, it's respect. It was Harbaugh saying, "We've seen you come from behind before and I ain't taking no chances."

Not classless, common sense.

Wouldn't have made any difference; the Ravens totally dominated this game. To be honest, I wish our coach was more like Harbaugh; the score was flattering to the Texans.

Need I remind you that the team who won the Superbowl last year BARELY made it into the playoffs? It's the 3rd game of the season, your team has won 2 out of 3 of their games and you're jumping off the bandwagon ALREADY? Wow. With fans like YOU behind them how can the Texans POSSIBLY lose?

Sorry. If I'm on defense and you run up 100 points on my team and go full throttle for a full 60 mins of football the next time we play each other my memory of your merciless humiliation and emasculation of me and my team mates will be fresh in my memory and I'll make it my mission to make you best buddies with the team trainers or whomever puts you into a huge therapeutic bath. Kicking someone's butt is one thing, running up the score is another. In this game the Ravens kicked the Texans butt, but our special teams helped them do it.

Last year it was Texans 26 Ravens 3 with a min before halftime- Texans kicked a FG- is that a classless act?

then Texans 36 ravens 13 with 8 min left in 4th qtr, Foster runs 2 yds for a TD.= is that a classless?

Im in the 'Don't like it, stop 'em" crowd...these are grown men playing, not 12 yr olds Rec league players.....
