Default 5-8 Where do we go from here?

I think with the game last night it will take us lossing all or maybe 2 of our last 3 games for Kubiak to be fired. Heres how i see it playing out. Next weekend Jacksonville goes to Indianapolis and beats the Colts and puts them at 9-5 and sowing up the AFC south due to their sweep of the Colts. The Texans beat the Titans and the Broncos to put our record at 7-8. In the Final game of the season the Jags come to Reliant and rest their starters and the Texans in a close game win and finish 8-8.
If this happens i doubt McNair will fire anybody but the best we could hope for is he fires Bush and brings in a DC that has no links to Kubiak or Denver. I will make a further prediction if this happens Fans and the local media will point to the 2009-2010 Superbowl champion Saints and how they hired Gregg Williams and allowed Sean Payton to concentrate on Offense. Only one thing Gary Kubiak aint Sean Payton and he would never call and have his players ready to get a onside kick to start the 2nd half of a superbowl.
FIRE KUBIAK AND HIRE BILL COWHER AND LOSE THIS LOOSER MENTALITY. GO TEXANS!!!

To the off-season, yet again, with no emotional ties to teams in the playoffs?

Blow the rest of the season for draft position at this point. Of course, they won't. Probably finish 8-8 and draft another Kareem Jackson or Duane Brown.

I'm still watching this season, to see Mike Vick become the first
"running quarterback" to win the Superbowl. It's only fitting, since
he's the first QB to be criticized for being such.

It's football, of course I will watch. Just without the emotional ties a fan's home team would provide.

I don't see anyone beating the Pats with the way they are playing right now

Find an AFC team and an NFC team you like and ride with them through the playoffs?

I don't think they will win the superbowl. They will have to beat the Falcons to get there and probably the Patriots if they do get there. Vick is a great story this year but not one that will end with a superbowl title imho.

The Titans have given up , the Broncos are in turmoil and the Jags will rest for the playoffs.
8-8 Book it Dano!

Default Re: 5-8 Where do we go from here?

Even though I agree with Thorn I just wanna end the season with a sweep of the meatballs, and revenge on the kitty's!! Let Kubiak have a good showing in Denver so daddy Bob will let him go home. If he doesn't, then I'll still be here next year, NFL or not, expressing my womanly opinion!

The way is see it is that we have a SLIM chance of breaking even. Truthfully, really don't care at this point. My heart has been shattered to pieces and I need to do some serious repair work on my old ticker before next year gets here. Just gonna sit back and see what happens the rest of this year. As for the BOWL, I'm pulling for anyone other than a rep of the AFC South!!

We will beat Tennessee and Denver
Indy will beat Jacksonville and lose to Oakland and Tennessee
Jacksonville will lose to Indy and Washington

Everything will be set up perfectly, Garrard and MJD will be injured and all we have to do is win.

And...we will get beat on one of those plays where they just keep pitching it around and run it in.

Book it.

I actually wanted Vick to come here after getting out of prison.

And i never thought Vick was any good before he went to prison.

But people like that need a second chance. Forget the whole black-white thing. I'm talking about a star NFL player who lost it all, and came back and said he wanted to be a better man.

Why wouldn't we take a flier on that guy? Because of the image?

I think Vick can single-handedly win games. He's THAT dangerous.

Good for him. And how about the loser Eagles fans who sported hateful signs about Vick this year? I bet they aren't sporting those signs now, are they? Winning cures all ills. Period.

Losing makes things 10 times worse. We know that for sure.

If Vick had come to Houston I would be an EX Texan fan! I hate the guy that much! BTW GP, I would hate him if his skin was white!!! BUT, I'm a two faced biatch!! I picked him up on my FF team and expect him to lead my team to victory and MONEY!! Money made legally!!!

The only thing Vick has proved is that he's an OUTSTANDING football player! Give credit where credit is due. BUT, NO ONE knows what he does in his personal life so saying he's a "better" man is a stretch! He's still a sorry SOB who just happens to be an excellent football player! JMO!!

I can't confidently say that we'll win any of the remaining 3 games. I'm sure they'll be close, but I have no idea if the Texans will be able to pull off a single W. I'm too defeated right now to give "my team" any kind of respect.
