Well the softness of this team starts with the offensive and defensive line. We've got Myers and Brisiel in there who get bulldozed consistently. Even Winston gets blown up pretty regularly. Winston is a below average right tackle IMO. I've seen him get blown up a little too often for my liking. He has his games when he plays really well, but most of the time he's playing below average, especially in the run game.

Our defensive tackles are completely soft. Amobi Okoye and Shaun Cody aren't going to push anybody's offensive line around except maybe ours in practice.

Our attitude is completely soft. Our head coach shows no passion, unless his QB f's up and then he has a confused pissed off look, but still doesn't use it to be constructive.

We need someone that inspires as a head coach, not a friend or a daddy figure that's slow to hold his 'kids' accountable.

It's a Texans trademark...soft. I said this in a thread Friday...when you watched Pitt and Tenn did you see 2 defenses or teams that represented any of the hard nosed play you see here?No, not even close. Teams know they are soft and that is how they attack them. the toughest D they had was the first year and it was because they had some ass kickers.

As I said in another thread, the team has all gelled now - right into Jello. And what's softer than Jello?

The Texans just don't have a pair and they don't have a coach that'll make them grow a pair.

The team is fundamentally flawed.

If you lose the battle on the line, is that what "soft" means? Take Chris Meyers vs. Brian Jenkins for example. Was Myers "soft"?

Or was it that he got physically beaten by player much bigger and stronger than him?

Or take the line play in general. Where do you draw the line between attitude and physical ability?
The main idea is that we are a "finesse" team. We cant compete with physical defenses unless we just get really lucky and catch one of them sleeping. We dont have the power or the attitude to really match their aggression and raw physicality.

When the other team hits your QB every play regardless of if there's a sack he's gonna get happy feet, especially when he knows he cant step up in the pocket. That's what these defenses do, go out there and hit our QB in the mouth. Schaub has skills, but no QB can perform that well when he's getting hit repeatedly and cant step up in the pocket. Not even King Manning.

Well, the great thing is that next year's season tickets gift will be a customized Snuggie™ Blanket, because they're soft, too.

Nope, can't see it at all. In fact, last Monday, I heard Kubiak,during his radio show, say that he hopes that he doesn't have to give too many speeches. That if you have to give too many speeches to a team, that probably means there's a problem.

Way to lead the team into battle coach!

I swear, my head is gonna explode if Kubiak answers a reporter who asks him if next week is a must win game with, "Well I dont think its a must win game. I think its a must play well game."

Does this start at the top? I mean the kid gloves with which McNair treated Carr and does the coaches...do people think their is accountability?If not then this breeds doughy softness because who really cares if you can be the semi-best player or a decent coach and get second chances because you are good people.

Kubiak has made mistake after mistake the lack of a proper game plan and ability to adapt to the Jets Defense speaks volumes of his coaching ability. I agree with you second honeymoon Kubiak always has this "ah shucks guys will get them next week" persona anytime he is on camera. Think about the times in the past when we have went for it on 4th down and Kubiak turns his head and looks the other way. It has always seemed to me that Kubiak is way to conservative and that is surprising because in Denver they were always trying trick plays or giving unproven players a chance(Terrel Davis). It has become clear to me that all of that risk taking was all Mike Shannahan. Someone should tell him(John Elway maybe Mike schelrith), "Gary Kubiak, Mike Shannahan was a friend of mine, you sir are no Mike Shannahan".

Our softness is a reflection of our coach. Kubiak probably went into the locker room and told the guys they did a good job and atleast tried, pure BS!

The Jets got an inspirational pre-game speech from their head coach. He had his team prepared to play, then got it emotionally ready as well.

"Honestly it is hard to kind of put it into words but we have come to the conclusion that we need to call the NFLPA and put him on the banned substances list because whatever he said was performing enhancing, definitely," Jets lineman Kris Jenkins said.

I asked a Texans about Kubiak's pre-game speech, and the player shook his head and laughed.

Inexcusable. And unacceptable.
