Just getting tired of watching talent get waisted by this coaching staff and this middle of the pack QB.
You really do not mean this.

I remember those years when the Texans would ALWAYS miss the playoffs by a game or two. It was terrible. Way worse than this.

At least they have a chance. Yeah it may not look like the best of chances right now but at least it is there.

We will all be watching cheering on our texans, why maybe because we are all blind sheep following a blind keeper.

Regardless i will be watching cheering them on in hopes that we somehow win, and then will do the same when we go on the road to either denver or new england.

Don't know if I'll even watch the game honestly. I haven't seen anything the past couple of weeks that leads me to believe we'll win. I've switched my attention to the Houston Rockets.

I gotta watch...love the game too much. My hope has already been crushed this last month of the season so I'm not worried about being depressed next Sunday when we play the Bengals.

i'm excited for the team to have won the afc south 2 years in a row and to be making the playoffs 2 years in a row . . . i believe the team as it is today matches up well against the bengals and should be a great game . . . i'm not excited about being down to our 3rd string lb's and not excited about the play calling or the play in general of the team the last few weeks, but i believe this team is still getting stronger each off season . . .

I agree. I think they should get better...if they don't then let go of some of their pro-bowlers because they are in cap hell.

Even after letting go of all the guys they are STILL edging against the Cap..I just don't understand. Smith evaluates talent with the best of them but he needs to call Daryl Morey and get some help with the cap apparently.

The only thing that would be more demoralizing than a "one and done" at this point would be if a 14-2 Texans team which didn't lose its first half momentum laid a big first round egg. With diminished expectations come diminished heartbreak.

There is a chance...which is better than we can say for our 1st nine years of existence.

I love watching the game and anything can happen. Hopes are not high, however. I wouldn't be surprised if Bengals are even favored. Tough one for the odds makers.

Last year's playoff atmosphere was excilerating. This coming game will be flat as a pancake. There will probably be no shows. What a difference a month makes.

What the hell has Morey ever won? He'd be the Gary Kubiak of NBA GMs, except he never hired his Wade Phillips.

The Rockets got Harden this year, and will have max contract salary space this offseason, he's actually done a pretty good job of "slow and steady"

I'd be upset at that. We didn't exactly look like the 1985 Bears going into last year's playoffs.

I don't remember looking this bad leading into it with as many losses at the end of the season like this.........

Also we had Yates in there...not our starter.....

Even if by some miracle we beat the Bengals next week, the next game would be at New England. There is really no reason for the Texans to make the plane trip up there.

But expectations were lower and the "just glad to be here" feeling was high. And it is rather telling that at the end of the regular season, a 10-6 team led by T.J. Yates felt like a considerably "better" team than this team which badly limped to a 12-4 finish.

This looked like an elite team, an AFC Championship contender, 9-10 weeks into the season. Since then I think it's safe to say that the expectations many have about this team's chances in the postseason have taken a dive.

Halfway in the season, I felt like this team had a realistic chance to beat any team in the NFL, home or away. (If we got Denver now instead of early in the season, I think we'd get thrashed.) The last few weeks have taken that feeling away. So compared to what we were hoping for as late as mid-November, yeah, it feels like a bit of a downer.
