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.
Big whoop? When was the last time we beat three teams in a row? Any three teams? When was the last time we beat a team by 29? Any team? When was the last time our QB had a 144 QB rating in a game against any team?

I'm not saying we need a parade down main street, but big whoop? Big whoop indeed.

I am very excited about this team, and their prospects for the rest of this season.

However, they need to work on their running game. Matt Schaub's passing has been impressive, but at the end of the day, a consistent, reliable ground game is what it takes to be a true contender.

the Vikings rush defense is ranked #2 in the NFL while the Bengals rank #27th. so would rushing for over 100 yards be acceptable (109 against Cincy)?

If the Texans get over 100 yards rushing against the #2 rush defense in the NFL, that would be good. That is based on the assumption that all of the Vikings defensive players are ruled eligible to play.

Just checking because everyone has a slightly different version of what makes a hater. To some people I am and to others I'm not. Anyone who really thinks that Richard Smith's defense turned a meaningful corner today could probably classify me as a hater if I started writing about that. I won't though becuase I'm in a good mood right now. The team finally put a bad team down and kept them there. That was a lot of fun and so I see no reason to dwell on what I saw that was wrong today (and yes, there were things wrong). Instead I'm just going to enjoy all the stuff that went right.
I say haters are those who wear Titans jerseys into Reliant (except when we play the Titans and they are Titans fans, then they're just poor decision makers).

I may not be a huge fan of Kubiak, but he deserves huge huge props for keeping the team together after the Indy debacle. That was a tough one to swallow and for us to follow that up with an unprecedented 3 wins in a row is a badge of honor irregardless of the level of competition.

the greatest thing is how no one is making a big deal about 3 win a row and that speaks volumes. If they can keep it going there are still some winnable games especially the way the team is putting points on the board on a weekly basis.

it was also really great to see Dunta on the sideline smiling and being with his teammates. you can tell they all really look up to the guy and respect him. You can just see the love Dunta has for the game and how much he wants to win. he is the closest thing we have ever had to a leader. Matt is doing a good job of trying to be that leader but we need to see it against a top team before he is truly validated...and that day may come before you know it.

We gotta beat the Colts on the road and end their season. We need to take everything one game at a time, but that is the one that needs to be circled. They are wounded and we need to drive a stake into their heart. It's gonna be tough for us to make a playoff run barring a 7-2 finish, so lets just make sure we give some teams some payback.

I sometimes think many of the board members here would find a way to be disapointed with any team. Even if we 16-0, if we left some yards on the field, they'd fine the time to complain about it. Theres just no pleasing some people. So enjoy the wins while they come and ignore the people trying to "bring us back to reality"

I was kind of upset that one of Kris Brown's 5 extra points was not down the middle...

There is a very pessimistic view around here. Especially after the win over the Lions.

I would not have created this so soon after a win but I sorta understand the sentiment.

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.
And by your logic we can also add asterisks for the game in Jax that we lost because of a coin flip in overtime and the Indy game that we were ahead by two scores with four minutes to play, the ball, and a Rosencopter fueled up and ready to fly.

Whhoooooohooooo, three in a row baby! Go Texans.

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.

Must spread rep...hate that message.

I agree with you porky...why would any Texan fan want to throw cold water on this win.

I watched the first half and was a little worried...then visitors came, so I turned off the tv and I missed the second half..

..I could not believe it when I saw the final score.

Next time my visitors will watch the game with me or they can go home.

Default Re: where are all the haters

There seems to be a reality for many folks on this board that every loss counts, and there are no good losses, but wins are only to be savored if they come "The right way" against "The right team".

I am a football fan for a singular and purely self serving reason - because it has the potential to bring me great enjoyment. When those opportunities come along, I try to make the most of them. I don't look at wins like yesterday and start believing we're a shoe-in for the playoffs. I don't look at wins like yesterday and say that our defensive problems are fixed. I don't look at wins like yesterday and believe there aren't weaknesses to be addressed. But I simply won't wait a few weeks and retroactively enjoy myself if they go well, but realize that I was miserable for the past few weeks if they don't.

Every one's entitled to be a fan in their own way. I honestly don't understand why people would take something like sports and football, and make it appear nothing more than a way to gripe and ***** unless and until some arbitrary measure of a teams quality is met or surpassed. Those folks probably don't understand me either.

Oh well, until I find something better, I'll just continue to choose to enjoy the crap out of the wins, and lament the losses while hoping for better the next time.

Great win, the game was a lot of fun. Nice to see 3 straight wins. The crazy part is that it should be 5 straight wins. I don't think our defensive problems are over one bit, but I am stoked to see the offense still rolling like it has. If we have to be a team with a great offense to win games, then that is fine by me.

That was a fantastic run by Slaton to end the game the way he shifted back and forth to get inside the end zone. He fought hard to get the TD on that play. It was great to see it from the Bullpen. I still haven't gotten to see it on a highlight though. That was my favorite play of the game.

Now it's time to test some of these better teams and see if the Texans can still keep this winning streak going.

Ha ha ha! Good post man! I think everyone is happy about the win. Our best win ever. Yesterday while I was at the game I was telling my buddy that this is the biggest win that we had ever seen at a game where we attended. I didn't realize that it was the biggest win in our history of a franchise.

There are still things to evaluate though and this team is not near perfect. The D still has a lot of problems and I'm still not sold on Kubiak as our head coach, but I like what I'm seeing with this offense a lot. Our running game is moving and Andre is dominating. Walter is a true #2 WR and Daniels is doing his thing. I was always said that if we're not going to have a great team, I would at least like to see a team that has some explosiveness on offense and some big plays. We are getting that and it should continue.

Yep ... it's truly exciting to be in this situation . I think we'll see if they've learned how to win because I suspect this game will be close at the end .

I'm not saying we need a parade down main street, but big whoop? Big whoop indeed.
Thank you. Im tired of people who sit here and say " winning is all that matters" then say it doesnt count cause "we got lucky", or "its a bad team". You cant have it both ways. This is the NFL, any team can beat you. Anyone. Im tired of people being so negative when we are slowly building Momentum that could lead us to play offs
