I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away

I believe I can soar
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly, I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly

Yes, I look at the bright side of everything.

I see an offense that can move against the league's best defenses, a defense that can dominate, and a special teams that can... (ok, I won't get carried away with the optimism). We are losing because of mental mistakes, not because the other team is better or more talented. Mistakes can be fixed!

The 2010 Packers started off 3-3, the 2011 Giants started off 6-6, and we all know how their season's ended.

So chime in if you still believe! I can't be the only one.

(This may be the shortest thread in TT history!)
Problem is mental mistakes like u said, all week long before the SF u know that pick 6s were on Schaubs mind, and whata does he do his first pass of the game in SF. I dont think Schaub has the mental toughness to pull himself out of this slump honestly. And mgmt wont make a change, obviously so all we can do is hope Schaub doesnt continue to lose us games.

I believe the team can still turn it around AS LONG as Schaub is NOT our QB.

I believe in Schaub, and that the team can turn it around this season. Still a long way to go and I think the team will pull it together.

I believe I am a realist that can be a fan and see things as they are. I believe that my loyalty should be returned by management and players who do not treat me as a fool. I believe my free time is important and there are many things I can do with it, right Astros? I believe this season can turn around but I do not believe it will.

Believe? Sure you can believe we can turn things around. But Matt is like a $5 scratch-off. You keep trading in the ones that are worth $5 for another hoping to win the million dollars, but eventually you are left with a whole lotta scratch-off dust and nothing to show for it.

I'm pinning my hope on this:

Last year at this time, and for several weeks after, this team looked like the best team in the NFL. The whole town was buying into it, although it turned out that the team was never actually as good as it seemed.

I'm hoping that the opposite is true now.
Things look bad. Really bad.
My hope is that when the season is said and done, looking back, we will realize the Texans were never really as bad as they seemed in week 5.

The good thing is that the tough schedule will expose this team for what they are.

There are really not many cupcake games left. The two against the Jags.
Rams and Raiders are mediocre teams, not horrible teams you can walk in and just expect a automatic win against.

The rest of the games are against potential playoff teams. They either nut up, win enough to get into the playoffs and become that battle tested team that isn't as bad as it's record suggests...or they fold and lose most of their games any ways.

I had this team at 1 - 4 to start the season, then come on strong to end it... I'm one game up on my thoughts, but I can't say I'm feeling positive about that "coming on strong" to end the season... but there are many games to go, and anything can happen... count me in as a believer

Checking in! I believe that the Texans will recover if they win every game that is left on their schedule in the regular season. That should guarantee the #2 spot in the AFC as well.

If being "believer" means I think the Texans are going to do what they set out to do, go to the Super Bowl and possibly win it. God no. At this point I am not a believer they can get out of the AFC, let alone win the SB.

At this point I don't think they are a playoff team even though there is so much football yet to be played. Just being a realist.
