Default One word for this team: pathetic.

Just like last year, and the year before that, and the year before that. etc. Team has shown some strengths, but really--if you had know it would be as it has been, would you have been interested in NFL football coming back to Houston?

At least the Oilers used to lose interestingly. And before they lost, in the distant past, they won for a while.

This club--nah. Put a fork in it. Let's make big changes in the off-season.

Your rep power rating needs a little work there, Nighthawk. But I guess it does precede you.

losses aren't just 'setbacks' until you've proven you can hold a winning record consistently. until then, they're a sign of the problem at hand.

The Texans are still a bad road team on balance and they went out and further proved it today.

Default Re: One word for this team: pathetic.

this MB overreacts to wins and losses.

we're the same team that we were after beating Tenn at home, we just went on the road, played flat, and got our rear ends handed to us.

not too surprising as the NFL is rife with this stuff every week. just as the announcers said yesterday, this team is on the correct road to success.

It was a pathetic effort by the Texans in this one game - but they are not a pathetic team. Detroit - they are pathetic. The Texans are an average team, as evidenced by their record of the last two years, and are getting better. They aren't good on the road yet.

I think we're all upset about the loss, regardless of how people spin it. It was a very weak game, our defense needed to step it up. We are better then the Raiders, but I am hopeful for next year. As the Texans record doesn't reflect the team that they are. They're much better.

actually the mb doesn't react...the fans do, and there is really no reason to be happy about the game Sunday.

Really? I know we lost to the Raiders but. . . Really? This sounds like something a Cowboy fan would say.

Until reading the current excuse threads, I gave the Texans a lot of credit for beating the Titans. Now I'm worried the Titans just "came out flat".

Well, didn't they?

You can sing the "I'm tired of the excuses" song all you want if it'll make you feel better, but the fact is that all teams will come out flat once or twice in every season, and get beat by a weaker team. Been happening since football was invented.
