I feel the same way about wanting to end the Titans season, but the circumstances we were under justified how today played out. There are still 3 more games that can finish them off, so we all can laugh at the Titans in potentially a little over an hour

* sigh * I'm just tired of mediocrity in this town. I've been sick and tired for years of settling.

The fact is, we should have never been in the position of being locked into the #3 seed in the first place - even with our injuries, yadda, yadda, yadda... But we did. Nothing can change that, and all my bellyaching can do nothing about this loss.

Wolf made a great post; I respect that, because I still have this image in my mind of the Texans holding the Lombardi Trophy with the first rookie QB in NFL history.

* sigh *

I suppose my football day would go better with a New York Football Giants win tonight.

and i truly believe that if we didn't have the type of injuries that we did this year.. we would be looking at number 1 or 2 seed.

Schaub and AJ healthy would have given us 2-3 wins extra.

I'm not unhappy that we lost the game. The Titans look like the most favorable matchup for us in the playoffs. I would have liked to win the game, but it's fine that we lost. Foster, OD and JJo will give us a great chance to beat our rival at home next week.

And frankly, I'm none too upset if it is the Titans that come into Reliant again next weekend.

This is about winning in the playoffs. The Texans did nothing today that hurt their chances in the playoffs. Rather by having reserves get experience in a real game, they enhanced their chances. Well done by everyone, and I'm very much looking forward to a playoff victory in Reliant next weekend. I'm more confident now than I have been since the Bengal game. And the Texans should be confident, as well.
I must say I'm in complete agreement with this.

Once I saw Yates move the team down the field and score on our first possession, I'd seen all I needed to see from him; especially with him getting nicked up.

It also was good to see that Jake still has something in the tank and has learned enough of the offense to move the team when necessary.

Funny I don't see anyone bitching that A.J. didn't play in the second half...

And can someone explain why Dreessen was not called out of bounds on that last TD drive. He was standing up when he stepped out of bounds. Why didn't that stop the clock???

His forward progress was stopped before he went out of bounds... I didn't rewind the DVR to watch again, but live it looked like the correct call... He was hit, stopped then went out of bounds losing yardage...

Out of curiosity...why are people angry at Kubiak, but Dreesen and Austin are getting free passes?

And please don't give me that "shouldn't have been in that position in the first place" crap. If they simply got beat because they're not good enough, that's one thing... but these guys screwed up in the most basic of plays.

I don't know... looked like BS to me. Sure, he was hit which stopped forward progress... but Dreesen was still standing and no other defenders on him.

It doesn't matter if there were not other defenders on him or not, his forward progress was stopped, and while going out of bounds he was losing yardage... had he moved forward to make more yardage and then gone out of bounds that's a different story... it's called that way about 100% of the time...nothing new...

Smart to rest the starters.

The Tebows and Raiders are ruining our dream.

How can anyone enjoy watching a Tebow led offense? He's set pro football back 60 years. Horrible.

I can understand people disagreeing with Kubiak's decision to mail this one in, in regards to the majority of the starters etc..., but to be fuming over it when the game meant absolutely nothing outside of one team "possibley" making the playoffs over another is absurd...

And please, spare me this "losing culture" bullchit... Kubiak's decision today was about making sure most of his team was healthy come next week, when the game will actually count... Like I said, you can disagree with it, but don't get ridiculous and act like his decision was based on the fact that he and the Houston Texans are used to losing... he chose health over winning a meaningless game... not his worst decision as Texans coach, by far!

It's been done plenty of times before, and it will be done plenty of more times in the future... get off the man's balls on this one, he just chose the route to the first round of the playoffs that you wouldn't have... nothing more, nothing less...

If anything, that's WINNING culture. That's learning to look past the loser Titans (who are DONE, btw) and putting a bigger plan into place. Losers mentality would make some irrelevant douche team matter over the ultimate goal.

I never understood it either... I've just seen it called that way every time, for so many times that I kind of understand it now...

I don't even know what the exact rule is in regards to the sideline and foward progress... I'm guessing it's seen as the ball-carrier not regaining control of his situation after being stopped... So instead of him losing yards and being spotted where he went out of bounds (and stopping the clock), they say his foward progress was stopped, and at the point of his forward progress being stopped he was still in bounds...
