In fact, one could argue the Phins did the smart thing by going up 6 instead of 3. You would HOPE your D could keep a team out of the endzone as opposed to being in a spot where if they give up 2-3 first downs they lose.

C-nnn-D... I must admit this is one of the few times you're logic completely escapes me.

Yes, it was sloppily played game by us. We should have had our way with them with as many 3-&-outs as we forced. ...we handled them nearly all day only to give up BIG plays (gee, just like last week)
And, once again, one of our guys had a brain-fart when presented with the opportunity to put the game away by merely sliding to be sure we maintained possession....

...but "manufactured"?? What you mean by that escapes me.

I understand this thread completely.

This is why you guys get so suprised. We win and we're great, we lose and we suck. There is no middle ground.

Recognize when we play a bad game wither we win or lose and you won't be so pissed and suprised after our losses.

People act like every secondary in the league is equal. The Dolphins have one of the worst secondaries in the league, if not the worst.

I don't think anyone is saying we're great because we beat the Dolphins. We're saying there's a time and place for everything, and pissing in the campfire when everyone's breaking out the graham crackers and marshmallows isn't gonna fly.

What's there to break out the marshmellows for?

I'm happy we won, but we did not play well today. We should have won this game by multiple possessions.

I'm not one to be super happy over a win for more than 30 minutes if our team played bad and probably should have lost the game.

I like to look at the whole picture and evaluate the team, win or lose.

I guess winning is so rare here that when we win everybody gets Koolaid poisoning.

If someone (more important than me) doesn't piss in the campfire now, as you put it, there likely won't be any need to be breaking out the graham crackers and marshmallows too often in the future.

Actually I think losing is so common that the boo-birds have taken a permanent nest. The whole point of watching football is for the fun of it, and especially the fun of winning. If you start complaining that there weren't enough screen plays run for your particular liking even after we win an exciting game, nothing will make you happy.

Schaub started poorly, and there were certainly mistakes to go around. But often times a team only needs a shot of confidence to start the train rolling.

You guys should become Cubs fans. Plenty of whining for everyone there

An improbable comeback victory? This team needed one of those badly. Learning to win is a critical step in the maturation process.

But Kris Brown only put the ball at a 48 degree angle on the tee before the kickoff! How can you celebrate at a time like this???

It's because alot of us have understand what happened in this football game, and don't forget all the things that happened after we win.

I guess we should all be ignoring the bad things that happen when we win. Smart way to go about things!

Great argument by the way. You really nailed it on that one.

It's the same people who praise and drink the Koolaid now who are dumbfounded when we lose, as if they didn't see it coming.

Waste of time to explain yourself I suppose.

There's ample tape to dissect and talk about in the next few days, I just think we should soak up a win and discuss the negatives in the middle of the week.

What?

We won as many games as we lost last year, and are fielding a very similar football team. Doesn't seem to have "matured" the team in any way.

Again, I am happy that we won, but I would like to analyze the play of our team. Not drink Koolaid and type "rah rah" on texanstalk.

Yeah, so I must not understand football because I was happy that the Texans won, I must be a bad fan.

A lot like the miracle of childbirth, the miracle of the Texans' first win of the 2008 season was far pretty. In fact, it was plenty painful and a little bloody, but in the end, it was all worth it as the Texans defeated the Dolphins 29-28.
