You never know what would have been. This is the Texans starters' weird 2008:

Light training camp to avoid injuries with 80 man rosters (and not much work for an AJ coming off of injury).
Part of a game against the Cowboys in preseason
Not a snap against TB.
Crushing by Steelers on the road.
A miserable off week.
An out of sync team against the Titans.

Who knows, maybe they could have got their feet under them at home against the Ravens? The Texans have been a much better home team and sometimes it takes a bit of time to have things click more.

The funny thing is that we never know what would have happened in alternative histories.

I agree on the home game and I thought one less game would hurt us but then saw the Ravens beat the Browns fairly easily . I know the Browns are'nt the Titans but at the end of the day we are what our record and play indicate .

I guess that is my point. Nothing is ever a given with this team and you never know what we will look like from one week to the other. Judging on 2 poor performing games, I would put my money on not doing so hot during the in between, albeit pretend, week.

If we are going to see a game or two more of this slow start then I am okay bye week on the 2nd week as it gives our team putting their best feet forward in line for wins in the middle of the schedule. But please let's don't kid ourselves because this team has shown consistent play the last two times they took the field.

So I reiterate my point, we could be looking at the bad end of a three game slow start and right now we are only out two.

Still in for the long haul, Go Texans.

Relax? Really? Thats your solution? We are 0-2 in year 7, and play like we are going to be 2-14.

It would be nice to be able to file for bankruptcy and start over. Starting with the front office and coaching staff.

perhaps the Government can bail the Texans out? Print up some more money to give to Stacey Mack and pull him out of retirement or something.

With the current bankruptcy laws, that might be a problem...

Maybe it will help McNair save up his money for an uncapped year???

I agree but the titans didn't put us away until late and had we not looked like a jv squad out there we could have pulled out the win. It all goes back to the bad "no challenge" on the long pass by Collins that led to the "td" by Lendale White (he probably would have scored on the next play by I didn't see any breaking of the plane) but that pass was the nail in the coffin. Well that and the fact that we had 1st and Goal on the 1 and couldn't stick it in. The wheels came off today and it was still within reach for a long time. I do agree they are looking like they could be the dominant team overall, but it's early. If by some way, some how we can pull out the next two games and be 2-1 in the division then things could be a lot brighter, but that is going to be a tough row to hoe.

that's right there with THIS stat.

1st and Goal from the 4 (we had this TWICE in this game). TOTAL points = 3.

I'm a purebred Kubiak homer who dearly likes the man & his philosophy, but I put this loss SQUARELY on HIS shoulders. Poor clock management and poor play selection are HIS responsibility.

Take the two gimme FGs and the Texans are down 6 with plenty of time to play and a somewhat revived defense. (Please don't bring up the prior bad snaps - they shouldn't be a 'real' consideration)

Yeah, Schaub had a LOUSY day, but I'd put him as #2 reason for this loss. (AJ DID drop a 'certain' TD on him) We'll never know how Sage might've performed yesterday. So, other than knowing that Sage certainly looks better when OUT of the pocket we'll just have to keep wringing our hands on that one.

It's not time for outright PANIC yet, but yeah WORRYING is definitely in order!

Thats what I was thinking. Just throw us in on the bailout plan.

I think the Texans are doomed for years. Free agents dont want to come to a non contender where careers die. Rookies IMO dread coming here because they make less of an impact than they would on a successful team, causing them to lose millions in the open market after their rookie deal. Just imagine what Slaton would be doing on the Eagles or Cowboys. Rookie of the year consideration. But on the Texans he will be lucky enought to have his knee's after 3 years of the Texans.

Just to be a little ridiculous Vinnny, lets do a "player redistribution" (a form of wealth redistribution), ie take good players from the better performing teams and give them to the worse performing teams.

So, lets see, I will take Jared Allen to play opposite Mario, Lance Briggs and Patrick Willis to join Meco at LB, Marcus Trufant and Champ Baily to be our CBs, Joe Thomas at LT, Marcus McNeil at RT, Faneca at OG, Addai as RB, and Reggie Wayne as Wr#1a.

Yeah, even YKW could coach this team to a superbowl!

I think the problem is not the losing to two so-called tough teams on the road, but not really putting up a challenge in either game with a QB and coaching staff that look overmatched when playing legitimate NFL competition.

It makes no sense. It feels like Smith is hoping the other team will be stunned by his clever, brilliant, unexpected idea and just give up, not knowing how to deal with such a unique situation.
