I was thinking the exact same thing. Usually, I come in after the game to read what some of ya'll think. Instead, I'm finding old posts from 3 hours ago.

People are quiet when they are happy. They are vocal when they are not. Just the way it is.

Besides, most of TT is at Reliant right now having a good time. It will pick up later.

Everyone is basking in the glow of a Texan's victory.

Just taking it all in with a big smile, and a mild sense of euphoria.

That glow seems pretty dull... beating a terrible team, not much offensive production especially on the ground, not much to get excited about and nothing to criticise because how do you judge playing against a team that bad.

I still see lots of things that worry me, but why ***** after a win?

Also, the game was won at the half, so the second half gave everyone time to chill. If it would have been a tight game and a win, there would have been more posts (see: Titans game).

The Texans could have fallen to 1-3 with a loss this week to the Raiders.

I for one am going to enjoy the victory and bask in the aftermath of it as much as I can.

I think many of the people are at the game. For those of us not at the game, I think some of us are enjoying the victory while others have needed to get back to other activities that need our attention.

I'll get excited when we can put together 3-4 wins in a roll, not just 1-2.

Guess we know what kind of fans we have.
I had no intention of watching the game today but a lot of what I had planned to do instead ended up washing out so I found myself on the couch as the game started. Here's what I think (even after a 29-6 win)

It was the Raiders.

Steve Slaton still isn't right but then neither is our run blocking so it all kind of runs together.

Ever notice that whenever the other team has an obvious 3rd and long the Texans bring 4 and no more. That seems like almost every single time. Today I saw a play where we were going to bring the house and were really getting after Russell and then when they went for it on 4th and 9 (if memory serves) we went back to bringing 4 and of course they converted. I also couldn't help but notice that a flat-footed and obviously lost Fred Bennett was standing in front of the receiver acting like he wasn't totally aware of the fact that he was at a football game.

It's a good thing that the defense and special teams didn't take a cue from the offense and go to sleep after halftime. That crap will work against the Raiders who are mired in some kind of unbelievable bad mojo but any good team is going to come back from being down 20-6 if we take the entire second half off on offense.

Matt Schaub is having a very good year statistically but I know why he's going to be catching it all year long regardless. I'm not being a hater or anything but damn that man looks awkward and inept playing QB. Yes, he most certainly has better pocket awareness than David Carr did. No, that doesn't really help him much. Today the man looked kind of hungover or something. I was never mad though when he opted not to try and get extra yards or to move the chains. He could be lost for the season trying to get another cup of Gatorade so I don't want him doing anything that intentionally seeks out contact.

It was the Raiders. Thank god we don't have a coach like Cable. The guy looks like a child molester who can't remember where he parked his car for most of the game. Makes Kubiak look like Bill Walsh in comparison.

It was the Raiders. Thank god we have better receivers than the Raiders do. Those guys dropped more passes today than I think I've ever seen one team drop in a single game. It's almost like they're trying to run Russell out of town.

It was the Raiders. Thank god we don't have JaMarcus Russell hanging around our necks like the Raiders do. Vince Young looks reasonable in comparison to this guy. Russell will be out of football in two more years.

Oh yeah, and Jacoby is still, and probably always will be feast or famine.

I can't enjoy this victory. It was over nobody. Our offense shouldn't go into the tank like it does for long periods of time and I predict that they'll start slow against Arizona as well. Hope our defense picked up a little confidence this week. They're going to need it. Fitz and Boldin don't drop passes all day like these chumps did.

I am happy that we won. but let's get real. The Texans played a team that they should have pummeled and finally did what they were expected to do.

I would expect that if we lost to this team, "firing" threads would have surfaced (just like last week)


I can't get too worked up after this game. Let's put a string of wins together against some opponents and hopefully see this place light up

I don't know about y'all. This team has had so many ups and downs that it is hard to get over excited an wins at this point

I loved the defensive play today.. Cardinals are going to bring a challenge to this defense that we haven't seen before this season

I never expected the defense to hold an opponent to 6 points this season

I guess what worries me most of all about next week is that the Raiders passing game was absolutely shut down because their receivers dropped passes and their QB over threw open guys. Very infrequently did I see a Texan player actually make a good play on a ball. Warner to Fitzgerald is going to be tougher than JaMarcus to DHB or Louis Murphy
