Default Have The Texans FINALLY Turned The Corner

If the Texans are now on their way to a winning record to finish out the 2009 season, one would have to point to halftime of the game in Arizona as the turning point.

Minus the atrocious goal line fiasco last week, the last six quarters have been money.

Have the Texans finally turned the corner?

Don't try to find the corner which has been turned. Instead, try only to realize the truth.

There is no corner.

Did they turn a corner after they beat the Titans in week 2? No.

Let's see them get some consistency before we start this kind of talk. A win against the 49ers would be a good start. A good START.

That damn sure is the case on on our team.

And I'm talking about our secondary problems.

Default Re: Have The Texans FINALLY Turned The Corner

i think by talking about turning the corner we will shoot ourselves in the foot as always happens

what i would like to say is that maybe we are finally stepping up to our potential. With players like rookie cushing nearly new rookie slaton and the beast that is AJ leading the way. Add to that a healthy QB who is throwing 400+yards a game then im happy

Default Re: Have The Texans FINALLY Turned The Corner

For most teams in the league, there is no corner. Sometimes you get breaks, sometimes you don't. Sometimes you make your breaks, sometimes you don't.

It's hard to keep the good parts of your team good while improving the bad parts. There are very few teams that play dominant football all the time.

Default Re: Have The Texans FINALLY Turned The Corner

I don't yet believe any corner has been turned, but I am proud of the fact that we won and we looked like a real professional football team while doing it. I have been very disappointed in that the Texans really hadn't beat anybody with a winning record all season. Well, now they finally have. It feels good. I just hope this team takes this with them and learns to build on this victory.

Our first good win of the season, but we have to put some more together. Maybe winning 5 in a row would mean we turned the corner.

Carr scored a TD . . . when trailing by 28 in the fourth quarter. That's hardly unusual. He's showing that, three years and two teams later, he hasn't lost his ability to pile up stats at the wrong end of blowouts. We don't call garbage time yards "Carr yards" for nothing.

well this is Kubiaks 4th season, if he continues to turn the corner, that makes a square, so in essence we are basically going in a circle if he turns another one

Default Re: Have The Texans FINALLY Turned The Corner

No and I'm getting tired of that question and the "is this the Texans' biggest win in franchise history" question that pops up every so often.

Turning the corner for this team is putting up a winning season and their biggest win in franchise history will be when they win a game that'll give them a winning season or put them in the playoffs.

Default Re: Have The Texans FINALLY Turned The Corner

There is a corner. We turned it in the Rosencopter game last year. It when we decided we were tired of loosing and weren't going to quit. It's when we decided to not be happy with ugly wins. We decided not to give up when we blew big leads.

You aren't seeing us turning a corner in games like today. You're seeing the results of a corner that has already been turned.

As long as we turned a corner that doesn't immediately have another corner to turn after it.

If this was the first of a 5 game win streak, yes it would be turning the corner but we won't know for another 5 weeks....
