I'm with you. I was not supportive of Kubiak earlier in the year, but with all the injuries (I know all teams have injuries), we've had and then losing D-Rob we've got to be patient with Kubiak. These have been very significant injuries covering a substantical portion or the entire season to key players.

Well I think everybody knows why the Saints game was sold out before all of the other games on the schedule, and right now I think it's just indicative of the make-up of the population we have in Houston more than anything.

It's seeing people at Titans games sporting Young jerseys that really bugs me. But I think that the stadium is nice enough that the city of Houston will do all it can to make sure that at least the Texans are there for awhile. If I were living in Jacksonville I'd be a lot more worried about sellouts and teams moving really.

Didn't we sell out all of the games we played when we went 2-14? Were any of them subject to blackout?

I think this was a weak hire by A&M. I fully expected them to bring in the salesman that could get people believing. Sherman makes Fran look like Jim Wacker.

All the games are sold out because of scalpers.

I saw plenty of empty seats at the Saints game.

You notice they go by "Tickets Sold" not "Asses in Seats"

no...many were blacked out and it was an ongoing problem till the team had it's 7 year playoff run in the Mike Holovak era. As a youngster I only got to see the team in our white jersies if my Father couldn't take me to games....Us local Houston kids never saw the team in our home blue.

read the bold. Fact is that we never got to see the home team on TV back then and as a kid there wasn't much we could do about it other than to listen to 740am

Default Re: It's official: Sherman HC at Texas A&M

i am not as happy as some of yall about this development as a Texans fan.

i have been moderately happy about the offense this year. too many turnovers and stupid mistakes but it has been night and day from the first 5 years of our franchise. Much more effective and explosive. Lacks consistency but we should be able to improve that.

however, as a Longhorn i am happy about this signing. Sherman is not the home run candidate that A&M needed to turn their program around. He just isn't going to wow anyone in regards to recruiting and he will probably struggle adjusting to the college game. i was worried that A&M would get Spurrier or Tubberville or Terry Bowden. those guys would have had a good shot at turning things around.

I read that part, but it didn't work with me working in our family's season tickets... Thus, I only quoted the part that I did.


But thanks for taking things so seriously...

Ah, the good ole days of Jerry Trupiano and Wally Lemm.

I think alot of the Saints gear was the same when the Oilers played here because of the driving distance. JJ also had alot of family members who were Saints fans. Add to the fact we have alot of New Orleans residents residing in Houston has to be another fact to consider.

That's kindof silly V.... have you forgotten about Katrina? The reason they sold 70,000 tickets to that game is because many people left New Orleans and never went back.

It's the same principle as seeing VY jerseys in Reliant when the Titans are there. We all hate it, but that's just the way it is.

Katrina displaced homeless and welfare folks. Those guys don't get to many NFL games. I don't think it's all that silly of me to expect the stadium to be filled with Texans gear and be a bit shocked at how much Saints gear was all around me.

I wasn't shocked at all when I was at the game. Many of those people have had time to get on their feet and get jobs since the hurricane. Considering the success of the Saints last season, I am not the least bit surprised that they would fork over 40-80 bucks to come see their team.

I agree Twitch

I would not be opposed to letting Sherman leave now.

His priorities will definitely shift...

Give Shanny the next five games to see if he could handle the job next year.

Not much of an audition, but it should give us a hint..

Plus, I don't think too many Packer fans who visited this site gave Sherman a ringing endorsement. And Packer fans know football.

Packers doing pretty well without him.
