Default Feeling Optimistic - We will beat the Bills

Hear me out here...I've watched the Texans since day one and I'm still debating whether Carr will take us to the next level (knowing we passed on Brady kinda hurts even though he came out of no where) and I'm hoping all of this 8-8 talk will come true, but this poor showing in preseason will motivate Capers and co. to really step it up. I'd rather have a mad coach who is embarrased of his team, really fire it up. Get the team fully prepared for Buffalo...the real first game that counts. If we coasted through preseason, we may have not given our entire hearts into the buff game. But now that we went 1-3, god knows the heat is on. I think we show up sharp in Buffalo and wipe JP Losman all over the field. Our D needs to start representing, though. Stand behind your team, chalk it up to learning about the backups, and lets go win the AFC South.

You must be out of your freakin mind!
Capers should have done that after last weekend. I must say that I wish I had your optimism.

I suspect that, if we were 1-7 in week 9, this board would be empty and morbid, not crazy.

Brady was drafted by the Pats in Y2K. The Texans first draft was in 2002.

I hope that eases your pain.

I thought I lost my mind on this one. What the heck was that guy talking about?

Brady - 2000
Carr - 2002

The posters are losing it.

I see and feel that there is alot more concern for the way we looked in pre-season, than going crazy.

Some of us FANS won't leave even if the Texans go 0-16. I'm a Texans fan no matter what the outcome of the games are. I've given the Texans a free pass for 3 years. That free pass is over when the coin is flipped in Buffalo. I choose not to be overly critical during the Preseason because it just doesn't matter.

If the Texans have a losing season, I will still have my season tickets in 119C and yell just as loud if not louder for them the nest year.

I bought my first Spurs season tickets pre-David Robinson. $600 per seat per year, 2nd row! They went 21-61 my first year. It was still a blast, and a heck of an entertainment value. Shortly thereafter they got Robinson and Eliot. Then prices went way up, and the fans around me weren't as knowledgable anymore.

Since then I've moved to Houston but still follow "my" Spurs. And I can honestly call them my team because I'm anything but a front runner. Victory has been very sweet.

Enjoy the Texans now. Enjoy the games. Enjoy the players. Criticize, but critcize fairly. If they ever win the big one, it'll all be worth it.

What hurt more than that is that we passed on Manning Too.
Wake me up when the draft come so we can draft Montana, I heard the guy is going to make a name for himself in the NFL.

Of all the bs I've heard...what really kills me is the fact that everyone was anticipating the season for the last 4 months, being all optimistic...now everyone is afraid of the season starting and are yelling 0-16 (you get my point)....

Remember people, we were WORSE than this in the 2003 preseason...0-4 and looking terrible...and what happened in Miami? Exactly.
