Default Re: Wake up call needed

A decade think about all of the changes that have happened this decade.

Then think about watching Texans football this decade.

That should cheer everybody up. LOL

i will give Dale a lot of credit and i am not being sarcastic. at least he is realistic about things and has come around to at least criticizing what has been going on around here. that is more than i can say for SOME yayhoos around here who just can't back away from Bob McNair's jock long enough to take a breath.

SH, amazing what a 6-10 season does to the psyche when I'm anticipating a magical season rewarding all us fans for years of patience and optimism.

Actually, even at 4-2 last season, I was very alarmed. I gave up the season, essentially, in the first quarter of the game at INDY.

The reason for the new found pessimism was the poor play. There was so much offensive improvement in 2008 and some improvement by certain individuals on defense that I saw reason for excitement. Then, in 2009, the team often looked like one of the three or four best teams in the AFC. I didn't think the occasional hiccup (Chris Brown) meant the team was destined to fail.

Last year, though, the team played like crap. And, if my argument was that patience was required so Smith and Kubiak can put the team they wanted together, well... that was year five and the division stunk but we were worse.

Still, though, you guys are going to have to suffer through some preseason excitement on my part (assuming there is a preseason). I'm actually expecting the organization to be more active in free agency than it has been since Casserly was throwing $25 million at people like Todd Wade, Robaire Smith, Zack Weigart, etc...

Lol. Dale criticized me for calling 7-9 before the season started, so don't feel bad.
