Worse day for you guys. What's the latest on Ronnie Brown's knee? If y'all lose him, then I think 0-16 is a possibility.

I know the beer probably won't help, but I'm getting ready to try one anyway.

well, Brown says he's fine, the x-ray was negative....no clue. if he's done then Miami can go ahead and give the 'Phins hat to Glenn Dorsey and start negotiating with his agent.

if Brown is fine, then clearly the day was worse for Texans fans. getting blown out by the Patriots? business as usual in the NFL.

What a bizarre crazy game...I'm worn out. I don't even know where to start when breaking this game down. I'm disgusted on a bunch of different levels. It's a trip to be this disgusted about a game that was such a memorable one...so, all I can say is that it was a bizarre and crazy game.

Default Re: What have we done to deserve this?

also my "Frank Reich" comparison with Rosenfels also calls back to his epic comeback against the Bills when he was with Miami. came in the second half, scored a bunch of points (and Chambers had like 15 catches, 220 yards or something ridiculous), and he did practically the same thing with Houston this year. his niche is coming in late off the bench and scoring points.

He's the Billy Wagner of football. He lights you up then gives up some long balls. He did a great job when he wasn't doing such a bad job. Teams don't win with that many turnovers.

This one definitley hurts more than last years loss. We had the game won, but let it slip away.

For what its worth, I thought for sure we had lost this game. What the Texans did in the 4th quarter was amazing and terribly frustrating for me. I thought our defense had played well enough to allow our anemic offense to win this game.

I thought I was going to lose the rest of my hair at the end of this one.

Texans played very well in the 4th and it could have gone either way.

Default Re: What have we done to deserve this?

Our defense lacks aggression...we give the wide receivers so much cushion its easy for QBs to connect with them.

We need a running back as well, however I think Studdard will be an improvement at a guard position cause he definitely knows how to run block seeing that he blocked for VY.

*sigh* things need to be shaken up a bit on the Texans front...something needs to change.

Of all the losses over the past years - this was the most heartbreaking. I had reconciled to losing when the 4th quarter started and to lose it in the last 2 seconds after coming so far so fast is just a killer.

I consumed aspirin when I was totally angry - now I'm going to move on to brownies - with fudge icing.

Tough loss? For sure, but you guys should be proud of your players....they showed that they have heart by making a huge surge when everyone else had written the game off.

It was the same defense that we played the entire 4th quarter.

I still can't believe we won, and please don't take that as gloating. I just cannot believe we gave up so much in the game, much less the 4th quarter.

But like he said, if anything be proud of your guys. Texans teams of the past would have given up after 25-7. Kubiak has obviously changed the attitude in that locker room.

Hope Schaub turns out ok and look forward to seeing the game here in Nashville in December.

Now go help us out with San Diego!!

Thanks man. Reading this thread got me depressed again. Only two games in Texans history I have been to are the Colts and Titans this year. If that doesn't suck, well I don't know what does. But you are right that Kubiak has changed the demeanor of the team, and that we can all be excited about. We are seeing what we are able to do with nothing. And guys, we never realized how integral of a part Steve McKinney was to our line being average. Without him, we're one of the worst in the league. But hey, when we do get a team, it does appear we have the coach to succeed. But get rid of Smith. I'm ready to see Frank Bush!

Default Re: What have we done to deserve this?

This game reminded me way too much of the Bills game last year. Come back to basiclly win the game and end up giving the game up in the last minute. When I saw Andre Davis's catch in the endzone I hoped it was going to be over turned to allow the texans time to run the clock down. That didn't happen though.

We have lost way too many of these types of games the past couple of years. In the past we have said that we just didn't have the talent to pull it out...which may be true today. At some point though, you just start believing that this team is snake bit.

It feels like we lost twice....once by the start of the fourth quarter, and once again right at the end of the 4th...

I have no idea where to post this, but I have to ask if I saw what I thought I saw. Did they play clock goto 3 then reset at 40 during one of the Titans drives?

I taped the game but ummm, it ran longer than the 3 hrs 30 minutes I had allowed for the game to take place.



PS Just freakin sick is all I can say.

What is the other biggest Houston sports win in history? I'm thinking the Astros winning the NL pennant has to take it. If so, a sweep in the World Series is as good as it gets. The playoff win vs. SD back in the LYB days was good, but fruitless. The NL playoff runs in the '80s were good, but fruitless.

To start naming losses, I can name quite a few heartwrenching ones, and I am only old enough to remember the late '70s and forward:

Oilers' losses vs. Pittsburgh (Earl had like 17 fumbles in one of those games, ugh)
UH vs. NC State - last second alley oop
Astros loss to Mets, 1986
Astros loss to Phillies, 1980? 1981? something like that.
Oilers loss to Bills
Oilers loss to Montana-led Chiefs
Astros losses to Braves repeatedly, and to the Padres
Oilers loss to Bud Adams
Texans 2002-present

I'm probably missing a few I'd rather not remember.

Houston Football can hang with any 'curses' put there:

1) University of Houston 1979 Cotton Bowl v. ND and Joe Montana
2) '78-'79 and '79-'80 Houston Oilers (Never did kick that SOB in)
3) '89-'90 Houston Oilers (26-23 OT loss v. Pittsburgh)
4) '91-'92 Houston Oilers (Denver come back, and win 26-24)
5) '92-'93 Houston Oilers (Buffalo, 'nuff said)
6) I think yesterday qualifies as being on this list.
That was just football, I didn't even talk about the '80 & '86 Astros

The Astros in the NLCS against the Cardinals having a chance to go to the World Series in front of the home crowd, Nolan Ryan looking down, crowd all hyped up and Albert Pujols cranks one to left field was the worst I ever felt. Thankfully we went on to win the series anyway.
