Last season our 1's completely ruined the Cowboy's 1's. It's preseason and nobody on messageboards really know how much gameplanning and preparation actually went into a preseason game.

I think the coaches are becoming better at mid-game adjustments, confirm/deny?

Default Re: Don't jump ship

If I jump ship I will break both feet, ankles, knees and hips.

I'm 150 miles from the nearest ocean, (or gulf).

Guess I will just stay the course, tighten up my vest, and sink or swim with our team...

I have to DITTO Thorns post. Never crossed my mind to jump ship, and never will. Been around Houston football since the Oilers first game at the old Jeppesen stadium in 1960. I remember sitting on those old wooden bleachers, drinking a soda I think I paid a quarter for, and falling head over heels in love with George Blanda! The Oilers were part of my history!! The TEXANS are my future!!

Someone said sink or swim ... Screw that I am either sailing the 7 seas or I am going down with the ship.

For me it is live or die nothing else.

It's not a question of jumping ship. We're all very impressed with the cannons, the captain is looking good and the crew is mostly at full strength. The problem is the hull is made of balsa wood and with one small hit we'll be leaking water so fast that we won't be able to attack the pirates while bailing out the water.

Arrrgghh.

Huh????


I think any Texans fan crazy enough to end up on this board is pretty committed.

I laugh and shake my head at how angst ridden some of the posters get on here during games (especially preseason games), I don't however confuse blind passion for disloyalty.

I like the rest of you will support the Texans (from afar) to the bitter end, mine not theirs, and hopefully hand on a legacy of Texans fanhood onto my son, and his son, and his son's son, and so forth into time immemorial.

You know, I just realized that this could also be read as an imperative for crazy obsessed fans to not jump on Marcell.

I too thought this was going to be a Marcel Shipp thread.

How disappointed I was to find that it was a place for us poor desperate Texans fans to plead our undying love (of the team that is).

If we start out 0-4, 1-3, etc. Don't give up. We have a tough opening schedule and a new offensive scheme. It'll take some time.

If Greenwood, Weaver, Reeves, or Green are getting significant playing time, its because they give us the best chance to win. I trust Kubiak. He hasn't given me reason to doubt him yet.

Keep the faith people. Many of you sound like you're already looking ahead to 2009 before 08 even begins. I personally think we have a very good team this year.
I'm with you gtex....put lipstick on the pigs and load up the wagons. We're a heck of a lot better off than we were three seasons ago. Anything can happen. Go through the fires and we can't help but to get better. Watching this young team grow up is going to be fun the next couple of years. Everyone is eager for a play off push....and it still can happen. Just got to have some guys grow up quicker than they would liked and get some breaks. We got depth and we're young. Got some play makers... knock a couple off early anything is still possible.
