Default Complete lack of Heart

I have been rooting for the Houston Texans since their inception and I will continue to support them. However, I will not take a team that folds up when facing adversity. They lack testicular fortitude.....they lack well..... heart. Offense and defense showed me absolutely nothing. I am not sure I think Kubiak should be fired but after today's performance I think he should be nervous about loosing this team. The Def Cordinator should be fired at 3:01 today and the Texans need to find a QB right now...not in draft...... not in offseason but now. The quarterbacks on this team lack toughness (something DC had) and durability ( again DC). After all of the complaining yall did when our former QB was here , you got what you wanted and we are left with an expensive benchweight and a turnover machine. I hate to say to you guys but.....I TOLD YOU SO!!!!!

I dont know If i want a change at the top.....but something has to be done....or we will continue be the doormat of the league.... I do not think any koolaid will heal me today.

I believe part of it is leadership. But rest assured, I've been told there is plenty of leadership on the team when I mentioned its lack a couple of weeks ago. So, at least there aren't any leadership issues.

I actually...realistically...asked myself..."Why do I watch Football?"

I don't plan on rooting for any other team...but if they are going to play like this I'd rather just not watch.

Finding hard nosed football players starts at the top. Bobby Grier needs to be fired since he has been director of Pro Scouting since the teams inception. This team is soft as a marshmallow and much of that rests in the disposition of the players scouted and the finesse schemes of our coordinators.

i think Kubes may have lost the team today....it just seemed like they completely quit on him today after the Heap TD....

In the past when people have called for Kube's head, i've been more inclined to say "give him 1 more year to get a bit more talent.....etc" just b/c i know Capers & Casserly left us in a bad situation talent wise. But this season watching the same mistakes being made, the terrible calls & clock management & personnel decisions, i wouldn't even be upset if Mcnair decided to go in another direction.

All good points made here about why this team just sucks right now. I cant even get mad at these guys anymore, I just have to laugh at it. I would love to see coaching changes made and I m sure that wont happen.

I wouldn't be upset either way.

He still doesn't have the talent i think...but at the same time this team continues to turn it over in the redzone and make the same mistakes, and today it looked like we were ready to just tank the season.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way... I just pretty much said the same thing in the "QB thread".

What other excuses have we made for this team?

Also, the only way they get a new coach is if its a big time big name coach like Bill C or Marty S.

I started to agree with you there because I no longer am losing money on tickets, however I am shelling out around $300 hosting this site so I can't say I am not spending money on this "product".

BTW, if anyone knows of any better hosting alternatives that will support a board of this size and traffic volume I all ears.
