The only way this team is going to rid themselves of what's truly wrong with this team (coach and QB) is for them to fall flat on their collective faces. I'll still tune in and watch every second of it.
As a Spurs fan also, I believe in this. The Spurs went thru a year like that when David Robinson got hurt. We were able to draft Timmy and the rest is history. I hope it is the same for the Texans.

I rooted for us to go down in flames against the Rams and before people say I'm not a fan, because I rooted for my team to lose, or rooted for Schaub to extend his sole ownership of the NFL record of pick 6's.. I did it, because I'm a fan. A fan that realizes this current team's max potential is mediocrity. As a fan I expect more and when you're stuck in "not bad enough to make change, but not good enough to win it", that's when you're in purgatory. So I hope they fall on their face, because a change has to be made.

The only way this team is going to rid themselves of what's truly wrong with this team (coach and QB) is for them to fall flat on their collective faces. I'll still tune in and watch every second of it.
i would agree with you IF we wouldnt get screwed with schaubs contract. were locked in with this guy this year AND next. cant cut him because of the massive cap hit. were stuck.........purgatory!!!

I took my nine year old daughter to the game yesterday and in the 4th quarter, out of the blue, she shook her fist at the Reliant field and said "you are a factory of sadness!" It literally made me laugh out loud. That was the highlight of my entire day.

For those of you who haven't seen it, this is the video that she got the phrase from (I showed her the vid a few weeks ago, and she remembered that line):


A Factory of Sadness

No. I think he means he hopes the team turns it around and never loses another game this season. That should be all fans goal until they are really eliminated from the playoffs. Yes, once they are out of contention "wishing" for total failure so there is a regime change or higher draft pick is prevalent among fans. This season seems lost already and I fully expect the team to lose the next 2 games. I'll still root for them to win though.

It doesn't matter anyways. Fans have so little bearing on what happens on the field you can wish in one hand and...well you know the rest.

A high colonic, and I'd say we are moving through it.

Not true. 3 million cap hit next year and 7 million the year after. That's not terrible if he's replaced by someone on a rookie contract.

we are in the worst position in the nfl right now. worse than jacksonville because they at least have the 1st pick.

oh, and were already in cap trouble, imagine how much its gunna hurt to pay watt and kj.

how the f did we get here?

Some folks didn't appreciate my Rockets mediocrity treadmill analogy, but we're mired in mediocrity all the same. Major changes are required.

and I root for them to fail, because whatever lands in that "one hand", you might as well grasp it, squeeze it, and throw it against the wall, because the outcome will still be the same. "wishing" for this team to turn in around is like believing in unicorns and believing in magic... they are non-existent and it isn't going to happen

I wish for this team to win also.. I just recognize the fact that they aren't going to win what I expect them to as currently constructed.

This team is lucky they aren't 0-6 right now and nobody doubts their talent level, so the problem that they're having goes beyond talent.. it wreaks of poor leadership and it stems from the HC and QB.
no I wanna win the SB and next year make changes and win the SB again etc etc etc

In the NFL there isn't a "uncutable" contract.. We're already in "cap hell" and are (luckily) 2-4, we can easily absorb Schaub's cap hit and win just as many games.

Yeah and I want to wake up every morning next to Kate Upton, the fact that I realize that isn't a possibility doesn't make me less of a fan or a dreamer. It just makes me a realist who recognizes Kubiak and Schaub have to go and I'm never going to wake up next to Kate Upton.

It doesn't look like we owe him a nickel after this year. So it will just be the prorated cap hit from his signing bonus which shouldn't be too bad, since a rookie QB contract won't cost near as much as Schaub's.

sup fellas?

maaan! I feel like we Ravens fans are in purgatory as well. our offense is pure garbage at the moment! we could have beaten the packers had the offense done something with the football when they had the chances. now, we're 3-3 and have to go into Pittsburg next week before our bye.

Seriously though even if we dump Schaub and draft a young QB it won't mean jack schit if Kubiak is still the HC. I don't think it will take 3-4 seasons to make this team competitive/playoff bound. But a clean slate has to occur and I doubt McNair has it in him to fire Kubiak.

I agree Scahub and Kubes have to go but just because they leave why do we have to give up on winning ..????
