Default Same ole, same ole

First off, I think the Texans players showed a lot of heart today. Obviously, we don't have the overall talent to compete in the NFL yet, that's a given. But the gameplanning is absolutely cowardly, just like we've seen in years past. This coaching staff gameplans not to lose, just like the previous staff. The Giants have a weak secondary, especially today with injuries, and yet we refuse to throw the ball downfield when the strength of this team is their receivers. The cowardly play not to lose mentality lost this game like we've seen dozens of times.

Why do we blame the Coach if we don't throw the ball deep??

I disagree. I'm proud of the way the team played today, especially Carr. I think he showed a lot of heart and that his teammates on offense went the extra mile for him.

It was a tough break at the end, with Cook's fumble, but the team played well and had a chance to win. It looked like bona fide NFL team today. The future is looking better.

Go Texans!

The team is making strides and by the end of the year we will resemble a real team. Maybe, just maybe we can upset Indy towards the end of the season.

IF SHOULD HAVE COULD HAVE, NEVER WOULD HAVE. Or, how about:
IF YOU ALWAYS DO WHAT YOU ALWAYS DID, YOU'LL ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU ALWAYS GOT........

Our team played better this week than last week and I believe that 90% of the Texans fans who watched the game saw the outcome they were expecting.

Our D played good......man, when Glenn Earl lowered the boom on Shockey I literally came out of my chair ! And Mario had what I would call a breakout game. We are gettin' better.

The offense looked more confident, but I was disappointed Carr had to act like he had never been in the end zone before.

14-10 seems pretty competitive to me. We were a fumble away from making things interesting, we do have the talent to compete with some of the best teams in the league as evidenced by today's game.

I think it was just the opposite. We ran a ton of plays with an empty backfield and it was working. I don't know if that was the game plan or if it was an adjustment but it worked. We won't be able to go deep until we get a bad ***** running game to bring the defense closer to the line of scrimmage.

Seen it year after year for going on 5 now. One "decent" game that still ends in the L column and people talk of getting better and progress. After last week how could it get much worse in year 5 with a rookie type QB. Just wait until after next week when we possibly win 2 in a row and maybe end this league leading 12 game away losing streak before you annoint this as progress. To me it's status quo.

No moral victories.

I hope that none of the players or coaches are satisfied with the effort today. It wasn't good enough.

I'm tired of losing and I'm the most patient person on the planet when it comes to cheering on the home team.

Did anyone REALLY expect to WIN this game? For petes sake, the Giants are number one at this time. I truly expected to get plummeted! We DIDN'T! Good effort, that's all I have to say, Thanks for the effort! And CARR. . . What a touch town. . .I for one was up and screaming!

The reason we can't run the ball, is because they always play close to the LOS. As soon as David consistently drop a few bombs behind their heads, they'll back up, and we'll be able to run like we want to.

Not knocking on David, just pointing out my opinion. But teams look like they are giving up the underneath stuff, and daring us to pass deep on them.

Yeah that was one for the ages wasn't it?

The Giants had several starters out. We had the lead entering the 4th. The game was there for the taking and we didn't take it. Two weeks in a row.

There's a stretch of 5 games coming up where if they don't win 3, I'll be disappointed. If they win 3 of the next 5 they will be on track for 6-10 which is about where I thought they'd be at season's start.

Lets see.... having the lead in the 4th quarter on the road at one of the toughest places to play in the nfl and a turnover was really the only thing keeping us from sneaking out of there with our 1st road win in since FOREVER. I will take the moral victory because winning on the road has to start somewhere and i think we get it done next week in jacksonville this is good momentum even with the loss.
