Me too

I dont care about what Eli or any other QB's have/are doing.

I do care that I'm going to be at Reliant tomorrow and Schaub hopefully will not be a pick 6 machine. Watching Schaub crap the bed this yr is disgusting.

Default Re: Accountability

I honestly think it's a money thing. Imagine paying your lawn guy a years' salary up front. You're gonna ****** and moan about the blades of grass he missed with the mower, but you're not gonna complain because he shows up on schedule to cut your grass every week. At this point, you just wanna get your moneys-worth outta the guy until something better comes along.

It's simply a bean-counters mentality.

Well if I didn't pay my lawn guy out of my pocket and if my choice to keep him on could cost me my job it wouldn't be nearly as hard to make a move

If my lawn guy is continually missing blades of grass that are so noticeable that I can spot them from my porch and all of my neighbors are mentioning it, I'm getting a new lawn guy. Especially when the lawn guy has been missing those blades of grass for the better part of a season, going back to last season. Obvious the guy can't cut grass very well.

I got a new yard guy because I payed my old yard guy to mow my lawn but he kept mowing my neighbor's lawn.

If you and your neighbors aren't "lawn guys" yourselves, you are all unqualified to have an opinion/criticize the lawn guy professionals. They know what they are doing. Have faith.

38-13 Rams. Too bad the reality distortion field that "proves" the Texans are great and know what they are doing doesn't reach onto the field of play.

I know this is going to be a very unpopular opinion. I know I'm going to be accused of trolling. But I'm dead serious. This looks like an inside job. This looks like something that has happened before. More than once.

It does not make sense that we can get the opposing team on their 1 yard line, but still give up a TD. It does not make sense the worst offenses in the league can drive 90+ yards on us. It doesn't make sense to give up 70+ yard drives for TDs again & again & again. It doesn't make sense that turnovers made by the QB result in TDs even on the opposing teams side of the field, but a RB can fumble on our 8 yard line & we hold them to a FG.

I'm convinced after watching the Rams score 17 points on our defense in the first half.

This is an inside job. We need to fire Wade.

I'm going with Occam's Razor on this one. The Texans just suck. People don't want to admit it because they see all the yardage and big names, but as a TEAM, they suck.
