I doubt that. For whatever reason the this Texans team has some sort of mental block that does not allow them to beat every other team in the south two times no matter how bad the teams are.

The ugly truth is that both Winston and Ryans are financially better off with other teams - that can afford to pay them - than they would have been had they been retained.

Or would you rather they stayed and suffered the indignity that Walter did by taking a massive (40+%) pay cut?

LOL that they beat us. If we could have swept them, we would have. Obviously, we couldn't.

I would have thought the distinction would have been.. optimist, realist, and pessimist. Either way I don't think Pessimist and realist are the same.

That Said, I have tempered expectations for this team.

Matt Schaub's health is a BIG concern for me. Will he really be ready to go by the season opener? How much will it affect his already limited mobility? Will it make him more rushed as a passer? Will he be able to stand up to the punishment if it affects his mobility?

I'm really more concerned about RG than losing Winston. Much as it hurt to lose Eric. I don't think Brisiel was world class but, he was consistent at what he was asked to do. I am hoping whomever gets more reps at RG will excell between Caldwell and S. Smith.

Defensively, I think we'll be fine. I do think we'll have to address the now lack of depth at OLB with MW departure and might have to look at another option at ILB over Sharpton as far as plugging any major starting hole. Which is a relief for once to be able to say that.

Also can Gary really FINALLY develop into an all around HC that can manage the game at all levels?

I was under the belief that "/" was used for "and/or" and to save space typed it that way. Glad you were able to struggle past it and offer your opinion.

That's funny.

I'm now pessimistic because Kubes might decide to let the Titans and Colts win a couple of games this season. I hadn't thought of that before.

Couldnt and didn't are two different things.

We played most of the game with a qb we had not too long ago picked up and a bunch of second and third stringers.

Garett graham saw action at the lb position.

Do you really think we put our best foot forward to win that game?

That was a damn good game, with our back-ups taking it to the Titans. We just ran out of time & it meant absolutely nothing. We didn't try to win the game, well, we did... by going for 2 instead of tying it up with an easy PAT & whup'n that Azz in OT.

I hope Kubiak has the opportunity to blow off at least 2 games at the end of the season.

What is that ONE thing that makes you go GRR!
Jacoby Jones still wearing a Texans uniform. You suit me up if you wanted someone to muff punts and drop 7 passes a game for a few mil a yr. Why the hell did we renew his contract. I would have rather spent the money on a backup Ol and gone into the season with 3 at WR and been able to retain/go get someone this yr.

come to think of it we would have been better off buying the entire city of Houston something off the dollar menu at McDonald's than paying him another 3 mill. I would rather have seen them donate the money to the Iranian dictatorship for the purchase of nuclear weapons than give than man another cent...
