No, believe me, I haven't forgotten how this team has lost close game after close game after close game and there are infinite woulda-shoulda-coulda scenarios such as the ones you just pointed out.

In the end the best rule of thumb I've heard from a football great within the last few years is the Bill Parcell's axiom which dictates: you are what your record says you are.

The Texans woulda-shoulda-coulda been in the playoffs season after season under Kubiak.

At some point you simply have to admit that the results of a Kubiak team are the product of Kubiak.

EDIT: And in spite of how this post may make it seem like I'm ready for Kubiak's head to roll, I submit that I still really like the man in a personal way and I sincerely hope he runs the table and shocks the nation.

Yeah really the only team keeping us out of the playoffs is the Texans. We are more talented than any team in our division right now even with our injury situation. We just can't seem to put it together a full season

The state of the AFC South this season is what makes 2011 the perfect final test for Kubiak.

Basically it's: if you can't win the division now, you're hopeless.

Like I said before, I sincerely hope he does. Not just because I'm a fan of the team but also because I like him. He's easy to root for. Good guy.

Yeah I'd really like to see him win too. I think he's a good guy and he's brought a lot of talent with him. I was glad that he was given the extra season with a new DC. Ultimately though this season really rests with him. He's gotta work around his own limitations and get this team moving in the right direction.

I resisted the move at first and thought bringing Wade on and blaming the entire 2010 collapse on Frank Bush was weak and wrong.

The idea grew on me though.

But last week seemed to prove my suspicions that the problem last year was not exclusively on the defense. The Texans could have put last week's game away early and didn't. The offense went to sleep.....

But here we are with eleven more games. I wish the hometown boy the best.

And at this point, we're 3-2 and on top of our division.

EDIT: And we're reacting to the Raiders loss as though we've already tanked the whole season.

I just think we're so trained to panic that we start seeing the season has lost even before we've lost it. Which isn't to say we WON'T lose it, but they should at least be given the chance to piss it all away.

Right. It's the "fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me" syndrome.

I've seen this movie before and it doesn't end well. Or perhaps the movie I'm watching this time around just seems identical to the last one but I'll be pleasantly shocked when this one has a happy ending.

My pessimism is a defense mechanism---I'm preparing myself for the worst because I don't want to be suckered again.

But I don't want to piss in anyone else's corn flakes.

Well said Corrosion, I agree with you on the players needing to hold up their end.
such as Schaub on that last play, if he throws it away he would have one last shot at it with @ 1-3 secs left.

Anyway, fans and myself included must be getting that "here we go again" feeling when we see the same old mistakes being made by players or coaching calls.

Our defense must play lights out against Ravens. O-line must do better. Schaub must not play scared.
Gonna be a good game ,,,, Lets do this TEXANS!

I hope that they keep on churning out those penalty yards the rest of the season. Munchak must be having to take a swig between every play.
