Wow. I am speechless. That article really nailed things. I usually don't like his stuff, but this was a great article. Pathetic.

If things don't change big time next week, I will officially be on the Fire Kubiak Bandwagon. Two things stood out to me big time: Kubiak/Shanny being so arrogant that they thought they could run run run on the Jets and not utilizing James Casey. The guy is a giant mismatch and not getting him involved in the game is enough for me to say Kubiak does not deserve to be the HC of this football team. Absolutely pathetic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Man, I am pissed off. Is this guy the most arrogant coach in football?

Default Re: Article: Texans' toughness questioned

well the colts are a finesse Team and they seem 2 do pretty well

The way to beat a physical team on Offensive is to spread them out get them moving around and out smart them

u seen on that last 4th quarter drive we where driving on them Hard

Let the pasing game open up your running game and tire them out

If one seen our middle get eaten up by jenkins alot i know its not safe but play to our strengths Scahub should have denver rolled out right or left he does it all the time

i dont know if is ankle was still hurt but scahub was not mobile at all

Winning makes you tough. Losing makes you weak. There's no extra credit looking "tough" and losing.

I would have absolutely given them extra credit for looking tough and losing yesterday.

Actually they didn't win crap until Bob Sanders and the defense started smacking people in the mouth...to go along with their offense. Plus their O-line does pretty well creating holes and protecting.

I disagree with that. You can get punched in the mouth and lose a fight, but by the same token it can make you tougher in the long run. As long as you keep getting back up and fighting.

Problem yesterday was that the Texans got punched in the mouth, & couldn't fight back. Then they took one to the gut, kidneys, and the junk.... The Texans never fought back. They did their team wide impression of HWSNBN and went fetal.

toughness is never overrated in football. This is a game about strategy, assertiveness, toughness and desire. Most of the athletes are equal when you take their measurables. Things like toughness and desire separate the "kids" from the "Men".

Disagree. The difference between the Patriots and the Lions is WAY MORE than toughness.

I thought I used other words along with toughness? Perhaps I posted them in invisofont.

you couldn't be more wrong. you can't win without being tough in this league. people point to successful 'finesse' teams but forget that they showed toughness by taking another team's best shot and still competing or showing their teeth on defense.

The Texans are soft, their coach is soft, and we will never win squat until that changes. Look at the Titans. They play tough because their coach demands it. You don't see Fisher being Billy Bad A$$ but you know that he demands toughness and uber competitiveness just to even start for his teams. All it takes to start on our teams is to be drafted early.

With the bolded.... The late '70's Oilers were not that talented (save Earl and a couple of others), but they were tough sumbitches and eventually won.

What do you think is the difference between Tennessee, Pittsburgh, NYJets, Baltimore, Philadelphia... and teams like Houston. It's not talent!
