Seven years into this thing, there are about two types of posters left here: true Texans fans, and Titans trolls. Also the occasional weekly opponent fan, I guess. At any rate, there are no "haters", just a bunch of fans that love this team, and as such, have been terribly frustrated at the poor play for so long.

I posted on another thread that this is exactly the win I've been waiting for all these years - one where we beat the team we're supposed to beat convincingly, and with no comeback drama. So I'm giddy this week.

I agree with the original poster though. It does get quiet when there is no complaining. However to follow up on Herv's post...talking football and looking for improvement or being disappointed in something is not hating. Hating is completely and irrationally going overboard..like the QB thing...and then having nothing to say until something goes wrong again and you can bring it back up. It's cheering for yourself to be right instead of cheering for the team just to win and get it done.

I agree. I've been MIA from the board due to being extremely busy, but I'm in bed with the flu and figured I'd see what was going on with the board. I've been to every home game except yesterday's game. (was supposed to be there, but too sick) It was the game I was waiting for. Finally a game where you're stomach isn't tight waiting for something to go wrong. I never felt like we'd blow that game which was a foreign (and great) feeling.

I really hope this is a turning point for the team. It's tough being a Texan's fan down here in Corpus. We're surrounded by Cowgirl fans. Course they can't really say much this season.

Texans fans are like any other fans- they want everything & they want it now.

that was not a great defensive performance, more of a bend but don't break effort but they are showing improvement, still I expect "fire Richard Smith" fans to voice their displeasure

It's times like this that I wish we could put an asterisk beside the past three wins.

*3-4

*The three wins came against teams with a combined record of 2-17, and the two wins on those teams was actually by one team (Dolphins). We beat two teams who were 0-7 and 0-6.

LOL. This board feels like a small Texas town where the high school goes winless for seven weeks, then wins a game and the whole town is throwing a parade and "all is well again"...until the team faces a REAL opponent in the next game.

Go ahead and delude yourselves all you want after we plastered a bottom-of-the-barrell team. It's fun to watch the mood swings on here. 7 years of this team has taught me to laugh about the losses and to half-chuckle about the wins.

No complaints from me about yesterday. Loved every second of it. I have been waiting for them to get an opponent on the mat, and then stomp on their throat. I have been waiting to see a killer instinct in this team, and that's what I got. Finally!

Were their nits to pick. Sure. And yes, Richard Smith still sucks. But, folks we just witnessed a 35-6 beatdown, start to finish, where all cylinders were hitting. Why complain?

The Texans in my view have had an almost linear line up all year from Pittsburg right on thru to Cinci. To me it is clear they have turned a corner. Now, is there better things to come around the corner, or is there a mack truck we can't see yet waiting to run us over. I really think the Minn game will be very, very, telling.

I have no doubt that the O will put up some points. But, will the D give up 30+ too, and we lose one like Jax? Or has the D turned some kind of corner to average (up from terribly awful stinkeroo). If this D is just avg or just not embarrasing our O is good enough to carry this team to victories very often.

This team is one coin flip and a Rosencopter away from sitting at 5-2 this morning. I know.... if if's and but's were candy and nuts....but the encouraging thing is that would not be a fluky 5-2. This is clearly the best team they have had, and we are one good offseason and one DC firing away from having a respectable D, and then it's Katy bar the door. I'm going on record now - I expect 2009 to be a huge season for this team.

I think you're missing the point about why this win was so great. We were supposed to win, and we did. And we did it convincingly, unlike the Dolphins win. We didn't leave the door cracked for them to mount a comeback, like we did with the Lions, And we played great football for 60 full minutes, like we were supposed to.

Sure, we're probably not good enough yet to split 10 games with the likes of the Steelers and Giants, but maybe we're no longer bad enough to choke up games that we should win.

The highs and lows shouldn't be so extreme BUT when was the last time the Texans went 4 quarters of just plastering a team..bad or not?There was no slip up here. Just throat on the neck. I actually thought they might lose this one just because the Bengals played other good teams close and they aren't lacking in talent. They are 0-8 though now. Again, this will all change the minute Schaub throws one interception and nutcases call for Sage again. It never ends here.

The parts I bolded (above) is exactly why I can't get so hyped up over the past three wins. We won. Against three BAD teams. Big whoop.

Our defense has been awful, with about 90% of it due to Richard Smith and his bend-but-don't-break defense. When Obama plasters McCain next week, let's all see what happens when you try the bend-but-don't-break philosophy in other areas of life, such as politics. McCain and Richard Smith are soul mates. We might be the only team whose D-coordinator implements a prevent defense from the very start of the game.

Miami did just beat Buffalo yesterday. I don't think they're that bad.

That was significant. We were better than the Bengals and we beat them convincingly. That is what good teams do: take care of bad teams.

Thus it was an enjoyable W but as to the "haters" I barely post in this section any way, so I'm pretty sure I don't qualify.
