Lets see how we do in the playoffs. I hope nobody else gets injured so there will be no more excuses for kubiak & schaub.

Anything less than a superbowl appearance is a failure imo.

Schaub has gotten better every season. He seems to be making better decisions every year. I think he understands that he doesn't have to win every game. Some games he just has to manage. I think 3-4 years ago when he was forced to win everything, it was too much to ask of him (and 90% of QBs in the league). He's not Brady, Manning, or Rodgers, but he's in the discussion for the top 10.

Just to keep some perspective, here's the sort of faith people have in Kubiak, in real time, from the gameday thread, pages 4 through 6:

I hear ya! I do as well. The frustration of the moment leads to honesty though, and I think it's evident that a lot of people do not trust Kubiak at least, and perhaps Schaub. No one posted in the early time period of the game thread anything resembling "In Kubiak We Trust", heh.

I do get frustrated sometimes early on but then I Figure Kubiak is using the scripted plays to set things up for later.so I try to give it a little time

"Yes, we are 5-0, but it looks like fool's gold to me. We havent played anybody that you can say is a great team. We should beat Green Bay but the pack are not the same and are injured. Baltimore should provide a stiff test but i feel like we have to beat the patriots in order for our greatness to be verified."

First, we're supposed to beat Baltimore/New England for our greatness to be verified. Now it's Superbowl or nothing? Explain to me how THIS season's 6-1 reeks of fools gold to you still.

Hats off to Kubiak not calling his standard game too. The man knew the fans wanted to see us come out and prove we deserve the top spot, and he went to the air after we had the game in hand. Well played, Coach. You fooled me on a few plays today and it was nice to see some different stuff come out of the playbook. Now I know we have something for Chicago and is it just me, or does the rest of the AFC look like a cakewalk?

That's horse crap. Winning a Superbowl requires more than having a great team. Often it requires more than having the best team, the best coaching etc. Luck and chance play vital roles in determining champions. All the Texans or any other team can do is put themselves in legitimate contention. If you do this year after year eventually you MIGHT win one. Maybe you might win more than one.

Right now you could make a list of the top 5 contenders to win the Superbowl and probably give each of them about a 10% chance to bag a Lombardi. So if we fail to achieve this difficult goal you are going to ***** and moan and call everyone else homers and say "I told you so" blah blah blah when all you did was pick a 90% winner. There's nothing to it man.

How about this: You pick 1 team to win the Superbowl. Call your shot. Can be the Texans if you want it to be, certainly doesn't have to be. But you only get to pick 1 team. And if that team doesn't win the Superbowl we can all call you an idiot for thinking said team had any shot to begin with. Cause that's pretty much all you are doing.

he was more agressive today i thought when we had like a 2+ score lead i expected him to be like ok we can play power football we are going to run this ball and kill the clock but nope we kept on passing it alot

but hey it worked kinda ..so whatever

idk im ol school when we have a big lead im like Run RUN RUN and when its 3rd down a 3 im like RUN IMO short pass plays are so much harder to do then a 3rd and 3 and heck if u get like a 4th and inches u can RUN it again

i just go back to the indy game 2 years ago were we ran it like 8 times in a row RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN we kept on running till they could stop it

I think this was one of Schaub's best games. This is what he has to do to get us where we want to go. Don't just accept that no one is open, make something happen.

He did a great job today, moving around in the pocket & keeping his eyes down field. The touchdown to Walter would have been a sack, but he sidestepped the rusher, stayed tall & threw a strike.

Then there was that play where he flushed to his right, with Ngata (I think) nipping at his heels. Didn't throw a perfect ball, but gave Andre an opportunity to make a play. He did & we stayed on the field.

We need to see more of that.

You ever hear that saying, that when you are looking for something, it is always in the last place you looked?


Have you ever figured out why that was?

Its not just that it is "easier" to call people out, you don't have the vantage point of the QB. Last year I sat in row 10 of the endzone for the Titans game. I've sat low on the sidelines before and all over the 500-600s and it is just not as simple as "that guy is open, throw it to him". Batted balls, ability to set and throw all figure into getting rid of the ball. If you can't get anything on your throw then the receiver is NOT open. Sure, it may work at the HS level. Everybody on the defense runs sub 5 second 40's. You cannot throw a duck, those get returned for pick sixes. You can't throw if there is no lane either. Watt has 4 passes deflected that have been intercepted. A tip ball is about 50/50 to be a turnover. I'm not calling him out for saying it either, I'm just pointing out that just because there isn't a defender within 10 yards of a guy doesn't mean it is a smart throw.

What? How do you arrive at that conclusion? Is it because we just have more talent than any team in the AFC? Do you just assume we will catch every break? If you think that it is because of our talent then your statement that "I don't trust KUBIAK", then you cannot say that "superbowl or bust". Same with your QB. If you don't trust your QB then how can you determine that it is superbowl or bust.

You are already declaring that we're in the playoffs. Notice that is in week 7? You are declaring, in week 7, that you don't trust your head coach or your QB but anything other than a Superbowl apperance is a failure? This doesn't pass the smell test. That is like saying "I don't trust our RB, if he doesn't rush for 1900 yards then he is a failure."

Seriously, you should maybe look into being a Saints fan. They are underachieving this year and would provide plenty of opportunity for you to ***** about things.
