Default One good thing about tonight...

Maybe we can finally get rid of those bandwagoners...

But seriously, check the boards after losing a game. They stand out like sore thumbs.

To all my true fellow Texans fans: Stand strong, support your Texans!


I just got my Texans car decals in the mail today...I'm going outside to put them on right now.

Agreed. It's DEFINITELY OK to be pissed about a game like this.

Just have to realize they have a HUGE chance to get things back in order with a win at home on Sunday.

Let's not lose sight of what's ahead.

Pats play the 9ers next week.

If we beat the Colts and Pats lose I think we'd lock up at least the 2nd seed right? Because we have the tie breaker over the Broncos.

We have to beat the Vikings or Colts (last week of the season) to do so. We need two wins to win the division still.

Actually the bandwagoners leave the boards and disappear. The diehards stick around to either criticize the team or criticize the criticizers.

Nah, just one of the Colts games. Winning the Vikings game alone won't get us the division but one of the Colts games will.

Default Re: One good thing about losing tonight

Let's put this in perspective - we're asking the Texans to be 13-0 right now. We should have beat the packers and we should have beat the pats tonite to prove we are for real, right??? Unless we lose to crap teams like the titans and the jags and then beat GB and NE to be 11-2. Either way - we have to be undefeated or lose twice to teams we should beat.

Maybe all we need to do is avoid teams that start with P.

Heh...

And you know what? The other "Elite" teams have all dropped some games to some lesser teams.

The Texans so far have not lost a game they shouldn't have. So far the two losses have been blow outs but they have beat every team they should have and some people had them losing to the Ravens and Bears when they came upon those teams.

They are fine where they are at, I'll take it. Just finish off the season with 3 wins and get healthy for the playoffs.

honestly i'd rather get caught slippin and drop games to teams that we should beat from time to time than get destroyed in so called "biggest games in texans history" that we circle on the calendar.

to win a super bowl you're gonna have to most likely go through an elite qb as opposed to chad henne or jake locker.

If we (11-2) beat the Colts (9-4) that would lock up the Division. That would make us 12-2 and the Colts 9-5 with only 2 games left. Thank you, come again.

HOMER!!!! Joking aside, I'm in total agreement here.

I just think more stock is put into these games by national media/most fans because they want answers to questions.

For example, "Are the Texans capable of winning a playoff game against a more experienced team?"

Of course, this game gave us a LITTLE BIT of insight into that. But ultimately, playoff games are played under much different circumstances.

That's how I feel.

The Texans are past regular season 'Test' games. Just like the Falcons are, the Giants, Packers, etc.

What we say about these teams is decided in January. We are not the little brother Texans again, we've played in big games, we've won big games, now it's about moving forward and getting wins in the post season. That's how Kubes should be judged.

No worries, I am fair game just like anyone else. That said, not sure what you disagree with there.

The bandwagon fans disappear after losses. They don't care enough to come back to this board to say how much Kubiak sucks as a HC or criticize any players. The ones that do that are diehards too. They are just pessimistic diehards or realists depending on your personal view.

You don't have to be a "sunshine pumper" to be a diehard.

The Colts won the Super Bowl in 2006. We finished 8-8 that year & beat them in week 16.

The positives about tonight. Well firstly Kubiak has all the material he needs to make sure the players get (and well, him as well) go out and get home field advantage locked up - there is no way after tonight that they want to go anywhere near Foxboro in the playoffs.

If we're clinging to possible future positives, perhaps the players can use the experience tonight as a learning tool for the next matchup. We have a number of players who are good students and will hopefully be formulating their own ideas about how to handle the Pats if we meet them again, as well as the coaches.

After the GB game, this is a sickener - and I'm sure we all thought this kind of result was done for the season, but hey, it happened, the Texans are still a Superbowl contender.

I can understand people being pissed at the moment, but there are going to be more meaningful games for the team this season, regardless of what ESPN is telling everyone.

That's actually completely wrong. We need one win against the Colts. A win against the Vikings does us no good if we lose both games to the Colts and they win their one remaining non-Texans game.

Yeah...did the Texans come out and say this was the franchise biggest game? I keep hearing that, I stopped following all the weekly build up since NBA season is back so just wondering.

Would be odd to say since the Ravens playoff game was bigger.

The best thing though is what you said. This wasn't win or go home, not yet. The team lives to fight another day. All I know is if they show up and get whooped by the Patriots again? I'll be looking at the coach.
