Default 100th Franchise Game (with poll!)

Today was our 100th franchise game, and what a mind blowing sad game it turned out to be.

Our overall franchise record is 32-68. Will we make it to 50 wins before we get to 100 losses?

p.s. I'm feeling a bit disgusted tonight, so please excuse my rather dark humor.

They'll make 50 W's before they lose 100 ..... 32 losses before they win 18 is a stretch .... Unless they play the next 32 like they did the 4th quarter today.

I voted 50 wins. Im too worried that if we are on pace for 28-100 Memphis may be trying to steal a football team

I agree about getting to 50 wins first. It just feels like we're on a fast track to Loserville sometimes.

Doing some quick mental calculations they are winning at a 32% clip over the first 100 games. They'd have to get just over 36% in the next 49 games to be 50-99. With the same "steady improvement" we are seeing now, it may not be a stretch.

We were chatting about this yesterday. We have a historical win/loss ratio of 1 win to 2.12 losses. So if we need 18 wins to 50, that ratio translates to 38 losses (meaning 106 losses total). Obviously, not happy thoughts here.

Well, the overall W/L ratio might be a bit skewed since this was an expansion team, so let's go ahead and take the first 50 games out of the equation. Let's see, that leaves us with ....

16-34.

Maybe that's mathematically a little better, but it sure as hell doesn't feel any better.

Call it blind faith...

Ya know, when I watch a Texans game I don't get the feeling that our team sucks....

The frustrating part to me is seeing that we actually can win in many instances..

Somehow, I'm not comforted by the prospect of having an 0-4 team that was almost good enough to steal a win or two vs. having an 0-4 team that just got blown out of the water. It's an 0-4 team any way you slice it. We can all come up with excuses why this team is theoretically better than its record, but in reality, they're an 0-4 team, just like the Detroit Lions.

Not trying to make others feel comforted...Just stating my views of the situation...

If you guys are pissed then be pissed....

I, however, will be patient with the team for the time being.

Most mediocre teams don't "suck"...they just don't make the playoffs like the better teams tend to do.

after 6 years you don't expect a playoff run? Since this was our best shot ever I can assume you never expected one playoff run since our inception? That's fine and dandy if you are having fun...cause we all know having fun is the most important thing.

I didn't expect the playoffs either but as you put it I did expect a "playoff run". I felt we had a shot at 9-7 or 10-6 but would still on the outside looking in.

I fully expected this team to be competitive for at least a wild card by now. Any other measure imho is setting the bar way to low for us fans.

Wasn't taking into account all 6 years....

I was talking about Kubiaks tenure....IMHO, Capers 7-9 year was a fluke...That team was terrible and it showed the next year after...On offense all we had on that 7-9 team was a WR and a kinda good RB....On defense we didn't have much either...

Capers left this team a mess.


Expecting play-offs and hoping for play-offs are two different things anyways. I seriously doubt there were many Texan fans "expecting" play-offs this yr....
