I see an offense that can move against the league's best defenses, a defense that can dominate, and a special teams that can... (ok, I won't get carried away with the optimism). We are losing because of mental mistakes, not because the other team is better or more talented. Mistakes can be fixed!

The 2010 Packers started off 3-3, the 2011 Giants started off 6-6, and we all know how their season's ended.

So chime in if you still believe! I can't be the only one.

(This may be the shortest thread in TT history!)
I admire your optimism and approve of your post. I wish I could be as confident myself. Personally speaking, you seem like a good guy.

If Schaub were the only worry I could get behind this optimism, but we have a bad kicker, bad coverage teams, bad offensive line and a shaky run defense. Those are a bunch of things to fix.

Meh... I'm a believer.

Not just this season, but every season with the Texans but including going back to the Oilers.



I look at it this way......

2 of the 3 Texans losses were out of conference (which has nothing to do with tie-breakers). The only conference loss was out of division (and yes, it is a conference loss).

Right the ship!! That's it!!!!


And for the love of all that is Holy, this Sunday don't boo when Schaub throws the ball away for an incompletion. Boo when he makes a bone-headed play.

BTW for some of you people: Throwing the ball away is not necessarily a bone-headed play. Sometimes, that's a smart play.

Well he does have to throw the ball at or near the line of scrimmage which at times gets interesting with Mr. Schaub I love it when a smart QB throws the ball away, just get it there at least, and with some zip right outta bounds, not a sleepy feather just floating in the wind inside the field of play.

I also believe 8 yrs are enough. Of course I wouldn't be in this situation because I would've fired Gary after 2010.

So start up with the stats and same old tired excuses. But this team is what it is and that's far from the SB contender that they were claiming themselves to be. In short the 2013 Houston Texans are a fraud. There I said it.

Let me give you a stat you can chew on since your a stat guy.

The Houston Texans are 4-7 in the last 11 games they've played. This yr they look like a team that is resting on its past laurels to me.

Unfortunately that rules out any 5 step drops. Because after 4 steps Noodles can no longer throw past the line of scrimmage.

I prefer to look at it as 10-6, 12-4, & 2-3. When we were losing we weren't allowed to take the last 4 games of the previous season & add it to the first 4 games of the new season.

No need to start changing rules again. Only thing that matters now, are the next 11, not the last unless you like to wallow in misery.

I still see this team making the playoffs at 10-6 as a wildcard because one of those losses will be to the Colts.

No need to start changing rules again. Only thing that matters now, are the next 11, not the last unless you like to wallow in misery.

A - I believe there to be some misery already being wallowed in
B - You are suggesting we don't use the immediate history as a litmus as to where we are at for a basis of where we should likely expect to be going? This logic is what got Obama elected a 2nd term. No surprise.. I knew Obama would get elected when I states only an idiot would vote him in for a 2nd term.
C - Rules? what rules would you be referring to? Oh, those rules that suggest that when a losing team ends the season on a hot streak that there be expectation that the team could carry that over to the next season? Ya, I think that rule has been around for ever... so are you actually suggesting that since THIS team ended the season with a hemorrhage, it's unfair to expect the bleeding to possibly continue?

Keepin it real.

Really,

I think Schaub's time as the Texans QB at an exceotable level is done.

However I love the way Matt and his wife have gone out of their way to help contribute to the community. They are really classy people (not that you would have a clue as to what class is) and I thank them for all of their efforts.

At the end of the day , the Texans performance is disappointing but not the end of the world . If it is , you live a charmed life if Schaub's pick 6s are the worst thing that's going on in your life .

My opinion of the football side is the QB and the coach of the future are not on the roster .
