Default Regardless, I'm pleased that we're getting better

I know we lost, and there were chances to win...against the GIANTS. A good team.
The defense played well and Carr bounced back nicely. Props to the offensive line on pass protection.
THE TEXANS ARE GETTING BETTER, GUYS. Anyone can see it and it's going to pay off later!!!
I'm STILL a Texan. Go Texans!!

I liked Wynn as the return guy.

Ryans had 10 tackles & a sack.

Carr took care of the ball.

Johnson had 9 catches.

Defense played well.

2 and 6? I think the first step in solving a problem is admitting there is one. Houston, we have a problem.

I agree with everything but the Giants are a good team part. They were limping to begin with, Plax out of the game...... We should have been able to keep Tiki under 100 yards, or not allowed Shockey to have a career day against us.

I know 2-6 is bad for the first half of the season, but the Texans are improving. They look like a real football team at times.
Sure they make mistakes, ones that can and need to be corrected.
But Gary Kubiak is doing a fine job molding this team. They've got eight more games left, people, and they've already matched last season's win total.

Better than what? Year 1? Not at this pace. Oh you mean than after last week.....well yea, but unfortunately there is always NEXT week. And Carr has yet to show he can compete 2 weeks straight, stop blowing so I don't bust your balloon.

You don't think firing the coaching staff and getting rid of a bunch of players isn't admitting a problem?

I agree wholeheartedly. I like Kubiak and I like what he's doing.

Schedule gets a lot more favorable in the second half of the season. Look, I also want the Texans to win every game they play, but this team was a disaster last season. If you can't see that they're better than last year, that's your thing.

No, I think that was a good start. I like Gary and I think he will get all of this together. I know it won't happen overnight. I'm not going to settle though for 2 and 6. We can and should do better. I think even Gary would agree with that.

But we have "progressed" right? Are we better than 3 years ago? No, and if you can't see that, that's because you chose to watch this 5 year disaster late.

Dude, We have a knew coach. Jimi johnson went 1-15 his first season. And then what happened? Did you expect them to go 16-0. If this was Kubiaks 3rd season then I would Agree but it's his first. Give him at least a couple of years.

You guys need to stop living in 2004...nobody said anything about "progressing" from 2004. All I said was "improving" from 2005, the latest season of disappoinment and the starting point for the rebuilding project.

Our defense held the NFL's #4 offense (370 yds per game) to 285 yds. That is 85 yds below their average.

We held their #4 rush offense (146 yds per game) to 122 yds. That is 24 yds below their average.

They averaged 224 yds per game passing and we held them to 163. Well below their average.

They also average 26 points per game (#6 in the NFL) and we held them to 14.

That looks like a vast improvement on defense.

What impressed me was the D man they looked like they had attitude from the 2nd quarter on. After last week I gave us no chance to win but was surprised how they played a TD in the 3rd quarter wow. What gets me hot is Kris Brown what is his problem missing a field goal come on. Is it just me or has Chad Stanley forgot how to punt if I am not mistaken two 35 yard punts come on. Overall I was happy with the play just came up short if Cook holds on to the ball it might have been a win today but oh well.

Why does everyone let Houston know about their problems? Are Houstonians know for problem solving?

You beat me to the punch "Neck." I guess some "fans" have a short memory or they are just "Dazed and Confuzed."

I think Kubiak is doing everything he can to "fix the problems," but it's not going to happen over night. Give it some time. At least another year. They need another free agency and draft period to get some more talent (DT, O-line, CB, LB, etc..). Give Kubes a chance! Denver wasn't built in a day!
