I was flipping through the channels tonight and I saw a program on National Geographic called "Aftermath : Population Zero". I thought it was a show about the fan base of the Houston Texans.

The next person to EVER say that Sage is a better QB over Schaub will get donkey punched by me.

First the Cubs, now the Texans with the most heart-breaking, dumb-founding loss of their history. We sat in stunned silence watching the end of that game. One man cost them the game, plain and simple. Everyone else played a damn good game, and Sage gives the game away completely. Who was he even throwing to on that interception?

Sad thing is I kept waiting for the other shoe to fall during the game. I guess all four shoes fell off the bull today...

Depressing...

I've got two things to look forward to the rest of this year:

1. Some nasty Ron Artest giving the Rockets some balls.
2. Illinois' Juice Williams lighting people up.

I feel your pain....and it's becoming increasingly obvious that the Oilers weren't cursed. Houston professional football was and is cursed.

Now we have 35-3, Stagger Lee, The River Game in Three Rivers 1979, The 'Renfro', Montana to Cash, Elway's 'Other' Comeback, Buddy's Punch, and now we have Sage's Surprise. Granted, Sage's chokejob was regular season but were the Texans, its not like we are postseason material anytime soon. Take what you can get.

When will the first fans wear their paper bags? I guarantee you if the Dolphins come in and punk the Texans, I may have to get myself fitted for one.

I can't even feel hate. I'm just hollow inside. Save for Illinois putting a smackdown on Michigan, it's been a bad sports week for me. I'm going to become a Dynamo fan.

I am a very mellow, laid back person and almost got into a fight at BW3 after the game with a Cowboy fan. I am still fired up and am waiting for my wife to fall asleep so I can put myself through more torture via a replay of the Chronicles of Rosenfels.

Which BW3? And almost getting into a fight with a Cowboys fan is no biggie...they're an annoying lot. They almost beg for a good beating.

No one feels worse about this than Sage Rosenfelds, maybe his wife. The guy was one season away from a forty to sixty million dollar contract. That got left on Reliant's floor with three something left on the clock. Makes you feel better boo him. He can't feel any worse than he already does. Not many of us can say that we know what losing forty million bucks is like. Sad thing about it is they played the best game of the last two years. Went from their best to their worst very quickly.

I have been hating this team for a while now. I gave some truly serious thought to unloading the PSLs and season tix this past off-season, but I decided to stick it out another year. No more. I'll watch on TV and I'll hope and pray, but I am selling the PSLs and tix ASAP. I am hoping that my anger levels will decline proportionally with my financial investment.

Like you, I have been pissed off all day. My wife knows better than to even talk to me and I haven't been answering the phone. Any hobby/side interest/whatever the %$^& this is shouldn't become masochism. This is taking years off my life, I swear.

I'm so sick of feeling this way about this team... I still love'em, and I always will, there's just no way to stop that... but man, I hate having this feeling every friggin' Sunday. It ruins my day (and my wife's).

The really horrible thing about this game though, is that for me - there's a world of difference between 0-3 and 0-4. If they were 1-3, I could have felt "hey, our one win is against a pretty good Colts team (despite their record) and we can now realistically win 3 more at home against some less-elite opponents."

Instead - even if we win next week, what am I going to say? "Yay, we're 1-4, and our win is against a Dolphins team that was 2-2, and if we win two more in a row, we'll be 3-4."

Big whoop.

So yeah, this one stings like hell... and even if we win the next three weeks, it's going to be hard for me to get excited about it. Beating a solid team like Indy would have gone a LONG way to some really positive feelings - especially since we could've all looked at each other REALISTICALLY and said - "hey, we can definitely be 4-3 in a few more weeks."

Yup. If we pull off our first ever 3 game win streak, we'll almost be average.
