Default Re: We Are In Purgatory

We're somewhere, purgatory, hell, Tennessee, Dallas. Wherever it is I'm not diggin it.

Its getting bad, really bad. Yesterday, I didn't even watch the game! This is marks the first time in the history of the Texans that I didn't either watch, or go to the game. It felt kind of good though, after the game was over my phone started blowing up with calls from my friends. When they told me they got their asses whooped, it didn't surprise me, it was kind of what I had expected. Then again.... I DVR'd the game and gave it a go late last night, and damn was it bad.

When the team is getting to the the point to where I didn't mind missing watching a game, that's bad.

Nope. Y'all won the Super Bowl last year. You don't get to pretend to be in purgatory for at least 5 years. I'd gladly trade positions with you if it meant we had a banner that says we were the best for that year.

I understand your frustration and of course, i'm glad that my Ravens won the Super Bowl last season. but that was last season! we are 6 weeks into this new season and to keep it real, the Ravens offense is stinking up the joint week after week after week! receivers can't get open! running backs can't run! O-line is pure trash! Flacco holds the ball too long at times and can't sense his way out of a collapsing pocket if it were a wet paper sack! our defense is playing better and caring this pathetic offense...once again!

our coach is not getting fired until the end of the season, and HE WILL try to win as many games as possible to save his job. he can probably get us to 8-8 which means we wont get a game changing qb in the draft.

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?
Season is not done, not close to it. They still control their destiny with a ton of AFC games ahead of them and 5 more division games ahead of them as well.

The record looks bad, the team looks bad, but the season is not done.

That's pretty much worst case scenario, a bad draft pick, no playoffs, and Kubiak around even longer.

It's only 3.5 million in dead money, but would free up 10 million against the cap. You can cut him and designate him as a June 1st cut and you're out next to nothing.

I hear ya. If Flacco can win a Super Bowl, Matt Schaub can win a Super Bowl.

I'm a little different. They put Matt Schaub out there & I'm going to root for him to have the best game of his career. If he's miraculously healed come Friday & he starts against the Chiefs, I'm rooting for him to grow a pair & kick some butt.

He's never been Tom Brady or Drew Brees, but he's had some games & he's played well at a high level. Well enough to win a Super Bowl, especially with the talent we've got around him. He hasn't been playing that way lately, left a lot of plays on the field, failed to throw a TD that was there for the taking...

If he didn't have Andre Johnson, Arian Foster, Ben Tate, Duane Brown, Chris Meyers... I can understand the frustration. But we've got them, we even went out & got him DeAndre Hopkins & Devier Posey. There's absolutely positively no reason we can not win a Super Bowl with Matt Schaub & the team we've put around him. IF Flacco can win a Super Bowl, I'm going to root for Schaub to get his head out of his arse & out of Gary's butt & win a Super Bowl.

If Kubiak decides to go a different direction, that's fine. I'm rooting for whoever he throws out there.

With Matt, he better win the AFC Championship game, or he's out.

Without Matt, he better get there.

Default Re: We Are In Purgatory

What will happen is the Texans will eventually start winning a few games at the end of the season under Schaub most likely. They will look good against a good team or two and people will somehow start to get sold on the idea that they got their problems figured out and are on a strong pace. Kubiak will be accepted going into next season again after Bob reminds the fas that Kubiak isn't going anywhere and people will fall in love with the myth that Gary has learned from his mistakes going into next season. They will think that he feels like he has to start adapting to save his job, only his job won't be on the line. Only to fans. It would hurt Bob way to deeply to get rid of Gary Kubiak. And we'll be in Purgatory most likely until he does down the road at some point.

Colts are playing Denver, so that might increase the odds of us catching a game on them this week, if it weren't for than the nearly zero percent possibility we have of beating the Chiefs.

Default Re: We Are In Purgatory

So the Chargers just beat the Colts in San Diego, and well....we beat the chargers in SD, SOOOOOOOO therefore we will beat the Colts when we play them

What will happen is we'll lose a few more guys to some 6-8 wk injuries (hopefully not), Matt Schaub will wheel himself out there in his scooter to run the offense, we will win a game we were supposed to lose and then lose a bunch we're supposed to win (how is that possible, I know right) and miss the playoffs and...........

Mr. Mcnair will talk about all the adversity the team had --from injuries to an unfortunate string of turnovers and just bad luck --and you know its a competitive league and such, but "I have no doubt we'll be back in the hunt next year."
