WRONG!!!! If enough people make enough noise it puts pressure on the owner to make a change.

I always "believe" until the math says otherwise. I can't just fold it in after game 6. But I got to tell you, the trill is gone at this point.

No more getting nervous before games. No more worrying about the flag after a big gain. No more anything, really. The Texans are just kind of ....there ........until Kubiak gets the boot.

That's your philosophy, so be it. More power to you. Me on the other hand don't call it quits when things go bad. I hope our players and coaches feel the same way too!

I believe we have a lot of talent. I don't know that we have a winning team though.

I'm having a hard time seeing how this team went from 12-4 last season with essentially the same roster to a team that can barely get out of its own way.

I have been a Kubiak supporter through thick and thin, but at this point I'm having a hard time defending his decision making. His playcalling has become downright stupid. We can't seem to throw it down the field. I would be fine with incompletions, because it sets you up for better runs and better mid range throws, but teams can essentially draw a line 25 yards from the LOS that they don't have to cross. It's like we think we're always in the red zone.

I don't want change. I want better.

If Keenum comes in & we find out that there is a reason he's 3rd string, just like we found out there's a reason Tj is 2nd (well, we found out there's a reason he isn't starting).... what did change get us?

Matt's not Tom Brady & there's a pretty good chance Case Keenum isn't either. So we need to stop hoping Matt will start to play like those guys & expect our defense to not allow the St Louis Rams to score 17 points in the first half. Let's get some turnovers. Let's beat the St Louis Rams 9-3

This is a really, really good team.

But right now, it's shooting itself in its feet with stupid penalties and turnovers.

I don't know if we can clean that up. I hope we can and I'll keep rooting for the team to turn things around. Teams have come back from deeper holes than this.

They have. The Oilers were 1-4 at one point and rattlled off 11 wins. We won't go into what happened after that.

I think this team needs to look for a spark somewhere. Right now, Schaub is probably out for the KC game. I think Keenum maybe a spark. It's a gamble yes, but this team needs something different.

That Oiler team had a better line, QB, defense....and coaching.

Totally get what you're saying here, but I bet they didn't look much better at the time that they were 1-4. I don't remember (even though I know I saw it & do remember the next 11 & playoffs), but I just bet. For instance, that D was good, but it didn't have JJ Watt or B. Cushing. That O-line was great, but it didn't have D. Brown or Myers getting to the second level. I know I don't even have to mention Foster. I think this team would be capable of making a turn-around like that, but QB is a big ????? right now.

I wouldn't bet money on him being the next Brady or anything, but I'd really like to see Keenum start. Schaub is injured & what we saw from Yates yesterday is just what we will get from Yates. Yates can make the short passes in the middle of the field (6 yard pass on 3rd & 10), but he can't make the big plays (whether its' a short TD pass or a long pass). When he tries to, we get what happened yesterday or what happened in the playoffs against the Ravens. Keenum doesn't need to be some sure-fire better-than-Schaub promise, because Schaub is injured anyway. He needs to get his shot. Maybe he will suck, but we already know Yates will.

I agree with this, i have always gotten excited before games. I mean blood started flowing, couldnt sit still, was anxious. This season even since the first game i just havent felt it, i try to be positive all the time. But this is the honest truth.

Something about the whole season just hasnt felt right, its like we were destined to come out and suck. I used to count down the days until sunday, not so much nymore. Very sad !

This is EXACTLY how I felt starting yesterday against the Rams. I haven't felt this way since the Capers days.

My wife knows I'll be pretty upset during/after a loss. I was actually pretty relaxed during the game. I watched the whole game just to see if Yates could look even remotely like an NFL QB. He doesn't. I am not excited about next weeks game. I still hope they win out but highly doubt they reach 7-8 total wins. Now it's wait until the final nail is hammered in the coffin and look forward to the offseason. I want to believe they can turn it around. I do. I feel the Texans have the talent to be a top 6-8 team if they have slightly above average QB play. We are seeing a ton of mistakes that are not typical of Kubiak teams. Penalties and offensive turnovers are at all time high levels and defensive turnovers at all time lows. Without great QB play you can't overcome a lot of mistakes.

Fine line between believing and delusion and Cushing is tap dancing all over it...


I will never give up on the Texans, although I joke about being a Colt fan, but I have ABSOLUTELY given up on Matt Schaub and Gary Kubiak....

Until those 2 variables are changed, I will choose to spend my Sundays watching other teams...
