Default Re: I'm about done with this

Having no expectations for this team seems to be the key to me having a good rest-of-the-day after they lay yet another losing egg.

When folks ask me, "what happened to your Texans", I don't even know what to say or where to start. It's been the same problems for six seasons straight - bad coaching, poor execution, no protection, no consistent third down stops or conversions, yada yada yada - and I just don't have the brain power to truly know where it all starts and stops. Our losing ways are starting to become institutionalized, ingrained into the fabric of this franchise, so I don't have much hope until they give me a reason to hope.

I'll always be a Texans fan, although less enthusiastic about it right now than I used to be.

Exactly. That is where I am at right now as well. Can't get too excited about it when t hey win, can't get too down when they lose. But it kind of takes the fun out of being a fan, right?

I do see friends that get all upset with every sack and INT. They are about to punch a hole in the wall if the other team scores. That is fun? Is that relaxing? The biggest question for me is if I will continue buying season tickets. I have a new house to pay for in 2008, and while season tickets won't break my budget, the money could be spent in other areas for sure.
