I personally don't see the point in getting that worked up about it. Kubiak's here, Jacoby's here, Matt Schaub, Rick Smith.... they ain't going nowhere.

Sit back & enjoy.

I never understood how people can get up & start drinking early... before noon. Now, I don't know how I make it to nine.

ITT sunshine pumpers continue to get proven wrong, but they still believe Kubiak will break through, despite jot having any evidence that that will happen.

What y'all call "impatience", us "sane" people call insanity. You "sunshiners" are the biggest joke on this board. You attack fellow fans and hurl insult after insult at them for just pointing out the obvious. You tell them they're being "impatient" or you even tell them that "they don't deserve a team" (which is BY FAR the DUMBEST thing ever written on this board.). Well us "sane" people just look at y'all like your a bunch of loons...you're wanting to do the same thing year in and year out, but you expect different results...now what does that make you again?

Oh P.S.

Don't tell me to go follow another team.. Who are you to judge a person's fandom? You aren't special and you aren't a bigger fan than anyone else who posts on this board so get off your high horse.
I don't agree with stop following the team or moving the team but I find it funny how you say us 'sunshiners' are the ones calling people names yet that is all you do in this very post.

I rarely result to name calling and didn't do so, I merely make an observation from my experience with other fans. That is that they are generally impatient. I never called you impatient or anyone else.

I really don't understand sometimes why there is such a division on this board. Like you must pick a side when most everyone would like Kubiak and Smith replaced. But since some of us don't spit the same vitriol they are 'sunshiners' shame on the fans that aren't jumping off the wagon after losing the first game.

Umm actually WE HAVEN'T...We've been saying FIRE KUBIAK for the last 2 or 3 seasons and that hasn't happened yet. That pink soap doesn't say "fire this, fire that, get rid of so & so, stop starting that guy, blah, blah, blah" club..

Stop bringing every single problem and negative thing said about this team into this thread and stick to the topic that this thread is about. Against popular belief, the "Fire Kubiak" club aren't the only people who have negative things to say about this team. Your post and your attempt to call me "insane" was a stretch at best.

The fact that you try to go postal on fans who are not quite as satisfied with perpetual mediocrity as you seem to be says a lot about your mentality more than anything else.

Do you know what a top 10 offense that can't win games gets at the end of the season?

Yeah I do call people names...after i'm insulted and have people call me names first and frankly when someone tries to tell me how I don't "deserve" a team, are too "impatient", or how we don't "support" a team that I (and fans everywhere) have loyalty supported for a freaking decade, I find that insulting. It is by far the stupidest and most moronic thing ever written on this board. Guess what, when someone says something that stupid, people are going to call them on it.

Oakland, Houston, SD, NY Giants, and Dallas had top 10 offenses last season. You know what else they have in common? None of those teams made the playoffs.

Having smiling faces on billboards or swell guys as coach is killing us . When was Drew Brees signed by the Saints ? When was Aaron Rodgers drafted by Green Bay ? Who has been head coach the longest Kubiak , McCarthy , or Payton . How long should it take for a franchise to get going ? How long can you sit there with 14 and not take another card ?

Well I agree with you on that.

All the 'This city doesn't deserve the team' or us not supporting the team is BS.
I think fans are the last ones that should take the blame for the Texans failures. The fans here are eager to create a tradition here but the Texans always give them nothing to be happy about.

Who doesn't take points when you are on the road? Especially against the Ravens.
Now this is a post I can respect; and even agree with.
This is football talk.

I'm in total agreement with you because I was scratching my head when they decided to go for it. I mean, damn, it was still early in the game, midway the 2nd qtr as I recall, and we were only down one score, so why not get the points on the road?

I was thinking, "Okay, here's where we spring that play where Foster fakes the plunge into the line while O.D. sneaks into the end zone scott free like he did against the Steelers. This is gonna be great", I thought. We pull off a little bit of trickeration right here and that should take some of the aggressiveness out of their defense.

I don't know which I'm pissed about more, not taking the points or the play that was called. No. It's the play call. If they had tried the play action fake into the line and O.D. was covered, I'd could see that. But to run right at the best D-line in the AFC?

...and that early in the game?

Dumb.

I was expecting a fake plunge then toss to Dreessen or O.D. like we did to the Steelers.
