Default Sunday: Win or Lose?

Curious about what the fanbase would rather do in this situation.

Do you want to win or lose, and why?

Win. Kubiak and Co. are staying put and I don't have confidence in their first round value anyway. And just think, if the Jags lose maybe they will be the ones to make the coaching move. Awesome.

Why do people just assume the bolded? Nothing is in stone yet. I am in wait and see mode.

It is my opinion that he is staying and I am not happy about it. But that is my gut...

I'd rather them lose. Better draft pick, but if they keep Rick Smith, we may not get the right player anyway. I'm losing faith fast in what Smith does.

Default Re: Sunday: Win or Lose?

I've never rooted for them to lose, but I am actually leaning in that direction this time. It doesn't benefit them at all to win this game. I heard on sports radio yesterday that if we lose, we draft somewhere around the # 4 spot. If we win, we draft around the # 12-14 spot. There could be a lot better player available at # 4 and we would give that up to win a game that still doesn't allow us to get to the playoffs or have a winning season? It's a no brainer to me. Bite the bullet, play your backups for evaluation, and go into the offseason with a clear cut idea of what you want this team to be and who you plan on drafting to get it there.

In the back of my head, I am thinking, by trying to win/winning:

-you risk injury to AJ, Schaub, others
-worse draft pick
-congrats - you beat Jax minus Garrard and MJD

By playing reserves and, say, losing:

-no risk or injury to our stars
-check out the younger talent/back up QB's
-better draft pick

I'll be there cheering on Sunday - but I am not sure winning nets us ANYTHING.

Don't really care but I can't actively root for a loss. I just don't have it in me to be happy about the Texans losing even when I know it may actually be to their benefit in the long run.

Default Re: Sunday: Win or Lose?

Really interesting couple of polls to me...

The the other one has board members wanting the Texans to lose at about 67%
This one has the board members wanting the Texans to lose at 46%

Is the only difference the "public" the poll vs. the anonymous one?

Hopefully a loss to the Garrard-and-MJD-less Jags will knock some sense into Uncle Bob.

I want them to play to win. However, I'd like to see most of the starters rest. I'd like to see the backups/depth play their hearts out.

It seems to me that if they go out there and play to lose for a better draft spot, it just reinforces the loser mentality that everyone bitches about.

The players are always going to play to win. What we want to happen has no effect on the outcome of the game.

Default Re: Sunday: Win or Lose?

Ive only rooted for the Texans to lose one other time and that was the SF game to get the 1st overall pick. If someone would have told me the Texans were going to be bad before the season (with a strong argument) I might have believed them. But if someone would have told me we'd be top 5 in the draft bad, potentially 2nd overall, I would have laughed and dissmissed it. Go for the draft pick. We need help whether Kubiak stays or gets fired, and high draft picks (in each round) are a big plus.
