As a matter of fact, since "the reason" we lost this week, was because the defense couldn't get off the field, let's let the whole offensive & special teams have the rest of the year off of practice.

No reason to try to get better there, because we're already perfect, and waiting on the defense to catch up so we can start bringing the Lombardies home to Houston.

We had 10 offensive possessions yesterday, we only scored on 4 of them. 2 were 3 & outs, 2 others we were forced to punt, because we couldn't cross mid-field. So all together, there were 4 possessions were our offense couldn't cross mid-field. then we had 2 turnovers, one field goal, and 3 TDs.

6 out of 10 possessions ended with no score. Only 4 ended in scores. That's less than 50%.
No, I'm not fine with mediocrity which is why I'm not blaming Schaub. He passed for 300 yards and 3 touchdowns. He had Houston at 2nd and goal from the 1, but they ran the ball. He's tied for 2nd with Peyton Manning in the NFL in touchdown passes with 7 (only behind Brees). His play has not been average or below average. He's played really good football the past two games. I'm not saying he should take the week off, or can't get better, just that you can't really put any of the blame on him for this loss. You want to blame Chris Brown for fumbling or the defense for giving up 31 points for the 2nd consecutive game? Fine, but putting any blame on Schaub who passed for 300 yards, 3 touchdowns, and led them down to the one yard line in the final two minutes seems dumb. Now if you want to talk about mediocre why not put blame on the defense? Giving up 31 points the past two games is worse then mediocre. You aren’t going to win too many games giving up 31 points in this league. Am I fine with mediocre? No, but the QB wasn’t mediocre.

credibility is hard to attain and easy to destroy. That said, some people don't care if their argument is ridiculous. It's usually the same guys.

C'mon... I'm not saying that we should be able to win every game even if we give up 30 pts.

I'm saying we could've won yesterday, even though we gave up 30 pts.

I'm saying some of the guys on this board think everything is rosey if we win a game, and everything is crap when we lose.

We played the same way against Tennessee that we played against the Jaguars, the only difference was we got a W in Tennessee. That game was huge for the Texans.

My point is.. (& I'm not calling any specific names) if you weren't as upset after the loss to Tennessee as you are today, you have no right to be. That was the same defense we saw in Tennessee, against the Jets, & in the Pre-season for all you "preaseason doesn't matter" folks.

I may be the only one with this train of thought, & I may be out of my mind, & I may not have a lick of "football knowledge" But I'm not crying about the same crap that I knew we were going to see.

Instead, I'm saying we all need to get better on both sides of the ball.

There will be a game when the "big reason" we lost, was because of turn-overs, and someone will get a goofy nickname (Rosencoptor) for doing the same things we cheered him for the game before.

There will be a game when everybody else realize, "hey, we can't win games if we don't score in the second half."

There will be a game when everybody else realize, "hey, we can't win games, if we can't cross midfield on most of our possessions."

Then there will be that game that everyone will realize, again.... "hey we can't win games if we don't put the ball in our best players hands."

Hey, we lost the game yesterday because we gave up 30+ points, and big plays on the ground, & we suck on 3rd downs. But there will be a day, when that won't be the problem. If our coaching staff is like you guys, then we'll attack problem #2 on the list. If our coaching staff is like me, then all these other problems will be addressed, as we fix the defense.

4 possesions in the second half, and 3 points to show for it. Yeah, Matt Schaub did all he could do. So did Slaton, Chris Brown, AJ, Walter, Jacoby Jones, the offensive line, Kyle Shanahan & Alex Gibbs..... they were the nuts.

This loss is 100% on Frank Bush & the defense, what was I thinking? We should totally be able to win games, when our offense plays for 30 minutes, then wait for the defense to score a touchdown.

Thanks for the insight. Can't wait for coach tk to drop another long-winded analysis of a nothing play after watching it on DVR.

DeMeco agrees with you

(on what happened out there) "We didn't play good defensively, obviously. We can't expect to give up 31 points and win the game. We just can't do it. I'ts unacceptable. We have to find a way to get better on defense. We've got to make plays."
