Default Tired of complaining. I support my Texans.

Fire Gary Kubiak? No, Kubiak is a good coach, and I am tired of complaining. I'm going to support him. I think most of the people out there know that Kubiak coached a good game today. I think everyone knows that this team, regardless of record, is a better team.

Fire Richard Smith? No, our defense played great today. We need to chill out and stop calling for people's heads. I just don't want to hear it for the next 11 weeks or whatever.

Sage sucks? No, he made a couple of mistakes. The guy played great today, and he just made a couple of mistakes while trying to play his heart out. He's feeling bad enough without the fans dumping on him. So many people were playing up the quarterback controversy, and now everyone is saying he sucks. He's our backup, and we almost beat the Colts with him as our starter.

I'm not trying to start arguments. In fact, I just want to point out that this is our team. We are Texans fans! They need our positive support right now. No more negative posts from me. I know that it is your right to constructively criticize them, but I am going to pray for them. The guys are playing hard and having no luck, and the last thing they need is fans berating them.

Default Re: Tired of complaining. I support my Texans.

I get where you are coming from and honestly agree with a lot of your points but to say the team needs us to to be positive etc. in order to win.... well if that's the case they need to get tougher mentally. They are professionals and hopefully they play like professionals for the rest of the season and we can play spoiler a few times and beat some teams down the stretch. Mentally tough teams also should be able to play better on the road and not blow a gimme win like that but in all honesty I really do think we wind up winning more games than a lot of people think from here on out.

0-4 is no one's fault. They all try so hard.

Having said that, as much as this team pisses me off some(most?)times I don't think I'll be able to not follow them. I just won't be losing that much sleep win or lose.

Default Re: Tired of complaining. I support my Texans.

I agree...this is not an 0-4 team, but they are.

I'll never leave my Texans. I had to field phone call after phone call from Cowboy fans rubbing it in saying "Come over to a winner" and crap like that.

These lean times will just make it more enjoyable later on. We have good players and the last two weeks have encouraged me. We just need to learn to close things out. Nine times out of 10 Sage doesn't cough that up if he just slides. He was trying to get a first down to keep the ball.

He manned up for everything (had no choice) in the presser afterwards. I felt for him because he's a solid backup trying to make the most of his chances.

I will NEVER bail on the Texans, but at the same time, those of us that stay have a right to be frustrated. Let's just go beat the Dolphins, which won't be a cinch either.

This team is what it is, and that is 0-4. No amount of excuses, what-ifs, or should-have-beens will change that. And I am tired of deluding myself into believing they're better than they are.

They are 0-4. Period.

I try every summer to throw water on some of the over the top predictions....and this is the reason why. Come October when things don't work out...it hurts and hurts bad. I didn't get sucked in today. As well as they were playing, I kept feeling the St. Louis game from a couple of seasons ago. What was the back ups name Fitzgerald or something...remember ? They'll learn some good lessons form this game. Don't take the foot off the peddle even with a seventeen point lead. Don't try to do to much when you got the dog down with your boot on his throat. It's ok to punt the ball. There are a lot worse things that can happen than punting. Fine idea to get the first like Jacksonville did to us last week. But Sage is no Garrard. Take care of the ball and give yourself a chance to win. Same thing happened to Jacoby Jones last year. Made a great return and tried to do to much with it after sixty-four yards. Ended up getting himself hurt. Lost him for, well it's been a year now. They just need to play smarter. Meaner. They're just too nice. And at critical times in the game they loose their collective minds for some reason..

Sooner or later they will all get tired of getting stomped and being laughed at and someone is going to pay. Teams are seven for seven against us on fourth down attempts..they ain't going to stop until we stop them ...once. 100% probability...only a fool wouldn't roll the dice on that one. Defense better learn to be viscous and learn quick. Going to be a heap of forth down tries the rest of the way if they don't man up.

I followed the Oilers through rougher times, so I won't be bailing on the Texans in the foreseeable future.

As the OP said, Sage was trying to make some plays so he can't be faulted for that. Of course he should have protected the ball better, and in hindsight I'm sure he would have, but he didn't and...well, you know the rest.

When were these "rougher times" you speak of? At best, we're tied with the lowest of the Oiler lows.

It was very heart wrenching, but its time to let it go and move on. There are 12 games left and we have shown in the last 2 weeks we can play with the best. Stop the Sage bashing. Yes his competitive spirit and adrenaline in the moment overshadowed his common sense on the one play, but without him we would not have been 8-8 last year, and with 12 games we will probably going to need him again this year.

This mentality might have been nice 3-4 years ago but when it happens year after year, its time for fans to vent and not accept b.s. anymore. Look at the dolphins schedule and they have found a way to win 2 games. Right now this is unacceptable.

Yep, they are 0-4 and not worth a shit. That's for sure. But, I will continue to watch and cheer for them even if they go 0-16.

Now of course I'll be doing a LOT of bitching along the way if they pull something like that, but it doesn't mean I'll ever quit supporting them or cheering for them. Who else am I going to root for if I live in Houston?

And if anyone says the Cowpatties they can kiss my ass, because the Texans might not be worth a dime right now, but they are from Houston the the Cowgirls are NOT!

My voice is wrecked and I was absolutely devastated. It was the best this team has ever played. We played like a Superbowl team for 56 minutes. I'm crushed.

However, this team has played very well 2 weeks in a row. The record is abysmal. The mistakes are frustrating as is the inability to finish. However, we've lost 4 games as clear underdogs and are now playing better than I thought we would. If this team doesn't quit, it's still going to finish with 8 or 9 wins!

Now I'm going to go lick my wounds.

Typical Texans fan:


January- Who's in the draft?
Feb-April- This guy could help us move to the next level
May-August- I think we'll go 9-7 and get the wildcard
September- Just a rough start, we'll do well, I know it
October-November- We suck! Fire everyone!
December- That was a great game. I love the Texans.

Rinse and repeat.
