Default I've lost interest in the Texans, what are we playing for now?

I have to admit my interest level is at an all time low. The season is tanked at this point. I know we will win a couple of games, and this Sunday might be one of our few wins. The season is still over. I don't know if any team has gone from 0-3 to even a wildcard spot, but I can't imagine it happening in our division. The problems is that I don't even know what we are playing for at this point. We certainly aren't developing our quarterback, and there is a good chance Capers is gone at the end of this season. If Capers is gone, then there will be a new offensive scheme and a turn over of players, which means everything the team practices this year doesn't translate into next. Maybe we can be the spoiler.

From here on out:

Oct 9 Tennessee Win
Oct 16 at Seattle Loss
Oct 23 Indianapolis Loss
Oct 30 Cleveland Win
Nov 6 at Jacksonville Loss
Nov 13 at Indianapolis Loss
Nov 20 Kansas City Win
Nov 27 St. Louis Loss
Dec 4 at Baltimore Loss (Carr is sacked 10 times)
Dec 11 at Tennessee Loss
Dec 18 Arizona Win
Dec 24 Jacksonville Loss
Jan 1 at San Francisco Win

I see anywhere from as bad as 4-12 to as "good" as 7-9

Why are you here if you have lost interest? Go do something else perhaps.

I should have seen that coming. I suppose I do have some interest that is why I'm here. Maybe I'm looking for something to keep me interested.

Drama is always interesting. And if we finish as bad as it looks right now, there will be plenty in Houston for a while!

Also I see a possibility of something like this if we get our stuff together

Oct 9 Tennessee Win
Oct 16 at Seattle Win
Oct 23 Indianapolis Loss
Oct 30 Cleveland Win
Nov 6 at Jacksonville Win
Nov 13 at Indianapolis Loss
Nov 20 Kansas City Win
Nov 27 St. Louis Win
Dec 4 at Baltimore Loss (Carr is sacked 10 times)
Dec 11 at Tennessee Win
Dec 18 Arizona Win
Dec 24 Jacksonville Win
Jan 1 at San Francisco Win

Any of those games I picked we have as much as a chance winning as the other team.

Also you knew we werent going to the Super Bowl this year so why'd u even start with interest? I think I know why but i'd like to hear it from you

Okay here is my take.

Tenn W
@ Seattle W (I don't know why but this team reminds me of the Oilers-Good team that loses the ones they should win and can't win the big games).
Indy L
Cle W
@Jville L
KC W because for some reason we just win to get everyone excited.
STL L PBuch literally gets 3rd degree burns.
Baltimore W because they can't move the ball
@Tenn W because we just have a step on them
Ariz W they are the Cardinals.
Jville Battle Red day Rules
San Fran W because they just prove they are sorrier.

Wow Texas you sure are a positive thinker. Seattle at home is a totally different team than on the road. I don't see that one. Jacksonville has improved more than we have and there is no way we beat them twice this year. Kansas City could possibly blow us out on Sunday Night. Arizona is a much better team than they have been and their Coach is much better than ours. St. Louis....you never know. I think the original post is much closer than we may think. Hell, we may not even win that many from what I have seen. I will still be there for every game, but I am just seeing clearly. Our defense is nowhere near what it was last year and they really better get it together. I won't even get into the offense.

Oct 30 Cleveland Tie (cleveland does not rock)

Nov 13 at Indianapolis Win (Carr comes back to shock the world)
Nov 20 Kansas City Tie (Brown misses a late FG in OT)
Nov 27 St. Louis Win (Carr throws for 400 yards and 4 tds)
Dec 4 at Baltimore Loss (Carr throws for 50 yards and 4 ints)
Dec 11 at Tennessee Win (Bud Adams is our *****)
Dec 18 Arizona Loss (PBuc gets burned on the last play)
Dec 24 Jacksonville Win (Jax can't beat us in red)
Jan 1 at San Francisco Tie (We just can't win the last game of the year)

Final record: 5-7-4

I think we might beat Indy once this season. It just seems the defense we've been running is schemed just to stop them, i.e. we're good against the run and we throw a lot of guys into coverage.

Yea, just like Steve Foley wasn't worth keeping. Ten sacks later, who's to blame? I don't care what this team scraps together as far as record. I want them to do well, but I don't want that to be credited to the coaching staff unless the team really shows us something we haven't seen. If it takes a poor record for Capers and Fangio to be gone, so be it.

I guess I didn't expect us to have such a rough start. I thought that worse case we would be 1-2 not 0-3. I didn't expect us to go to the Superbowl, but I did think we would have an exciting season and fall just short of the playoffs. I thought we would see good improvements across the board, and we haven't. The first two games were just painful but the Cincinnati game was much better. I hope we win every game from here on out and Capers is back next year because the team is doing so well.

Meh, maybe I'm just cranky today, but if we lose this Sunday I will be more sad than upset. I really want this team to do well!

Go Texans!

I have to say that right now you look crazy predicting a win against Kansas City. They're going to destroy us. What's worse is I have this sick, sneaking suspicion that the 49ers are going to mug is into the off-season as well. I was looking forward to watching the Texans make someone elses young QB pay his dues but now I think ours will be the one hurting at the end of the day.

Call me crazy and put me in a padded room, but I'm still hoping for an 8-8 season (much to the chagrin of Herv, as this would probably extend Coach Capers' regime for another year).

C'mon guys, we've got football in H-town!! That, in itself, is reason to go the games and have fun tailgating.

Losing hope for a season is one thing, but losing interest in Houston football is an entirely different matter. We should never forget those barren years that we had no football, especially those years when we didn't even know when we'd get a team.

Besides, if we really suck, we probably get a new coaching staff (a new start and reason for optimism) and a high draft pick.

This is nothing. The Oilers had a stretch from '82-'86 where they were 12-52 and I never lost interest. Sometimes I brought the Sunday paper with me to the games but I never lost interest

I have not lost interest at all in Houston football. Heck, even THIS flaming pile of dung beats no team. But, I have lost interest in rooting for this regime. I am sorry, but once my mind is made up to this extent, there is no turning back. Nothing short of the most incredible turnaround in the history of football will assauge me at this point. I won't be satisfied until this entire clueless regime is gone. Going 7-9 or 8-8 and seeing Capers and Cass skate by another year is akin to putting a bandaid on a man just shot in the head, and sending him home with an aspirin. We don't need bandaids. We need to get this patient a whole new head. That would just allow one more year to allow this regime to slide by. Nope - for the long term health of this team we need to lose 10 or more. And, at the rate we are going, that shouldn't be a problem.

I look at it this way... If we win Im happy cause we won. If we lose Im not happy but Im also not extremly mad cause it gets us 1 loss closer to the top picks in the draft. I would give anything to see us turn it around and go 13-3 but I dont see that happening. I either want to see us turn it around and win 8-9 games or just tank the season at 3-13 or 4-12 and get the #1 pick of the draft.
