Default Who's watching the game today?

I'll be watching it, but won't be glued to the TV as I have been lately.

With our season pretty much decided at this point, I was just wondering if anyone else felt like I do. While we do still have a chance at the playoffs, we'll have to win all 8 remaining games & get a lot of help along the way just to squeak into the wild card game.

Realistically, with Foster out for the season & our defense in shambles, it's time to play as many of the young guys as possible to see what they bring for the future. Can any of the guys on IR be brought up?

I have NOT given up on the Texans, just this season.

Keenum is worth the price of admission alone. Very interested to watch him for the rest of the season and see if he is the long term QB of this team. So far he has blown away my expectations.

i am holding onto hope that we win out, and even if we dont i am holding onto hope that Keenum gets better, AJ gets a 10+ TD season, Watt gets double didgit sacks. Even if we were 0-8 i would still be glued to my TV.

God knows why i would put myself through such misery but it is what it is.

I probably won't be watching today. I didn't watch the whole game last week. Honestly, I've lost interest and even though Keenum is intriguing it's not fun watching the Texans.

I agree, but I would lie to see more of the other young players.

The one I feel the most sympathy for is AJ. He's one of the greatest WR's in history, but will have to wait one more year for a shot at the SB.

I've been there. I remember watching every game during the Oiler's two consecutive 1-13 seasons. I'd literally be depressed for two days after the game, but start pumping myself up for the next game on Wednesday.

Win or lose, I'm a Texans fan and have been since their inception. I watched every game that was on television during their 2-14 season. I'm also intrigued to see how Keenum does the rest of the year.

I'll be watching and glued to the TV. I haven't missed a single Texans game, even if I had to sit in my truck and listen to it on Sirius or sit on the internet and listen or watch.

I stopped watching full games during the 2010 season. Then the off-season came and I was upset I didn't watch the full games or not miss any of them. They only play 16 times. Plus, I'm excited to watch Keenum play.

I can't catch the game up here, unfortunately. Hopefully there'll be a few Case highlights tonight.

What kind of question is this? Of course I'm watching. Football season is way short and it's not as if I haven't seen this team suck before. Plus watching Keenum sling it is worth it alone.

I would like to see the young players also.

AJ wont be winning a SB until after Rick/Gary are gone. Which kinda makes me sad.

Default Re: Who's watching the game today?

Today for me is about Rick Dennison. He's had Head Coach interviews. Personally I don't think he has the chops to change an offense on the fly to adjust to a totally different skill set, and I'm not sold on him as a playcaller or a QB developer. But you don't get those HC interviews for sucking, so I'm interested to see what & how adjustments are made.
