    Yeah I have said it from the beginning fire capers and his whole staff. I have also said get rid of Carr, at least bench him. There have been many of you who said I was nuts when I said this during the preseason. What are you saying now? Until the texans get their head out of their *** and play like something other then jv jr high football I am putting away all my Texans gear. I have had it with all the immature playing. I have had it with posters that keep saying that we will pull it thru. When we are the laughing stock of the entire league how in the hell do you expect this team to pull anything off other then their helmets. No Guts No Glory. No Coach No Team, keep the two or three players that might still give a **** and send the rest packing with the coaches and forfeit the rest of the year. Might as well we are going to lose the rest of the games anyway :goodnight

    10 hrs and not a response I guess that either I am saying something that nobody wants to admit that they feel the same way. OR, they are .......................

    What do you want people to say? You gave no realistic solution to anything and said you were boycotting. I guess we will see you again when the Texans get better. Bye.

    If you were a true fan you wouldn't boycott. I guess we'll see you later on the bandwagon.

    Boycott the coaches, NOT the team.

    I'll sit through every excrutiating second of every game, regardless of how bad it gets. Part of being a fanatic is staying with the team through good times and bad times.

    It won't be like this forever. That, I believe. :thumbup

    boycotting isn't an answer. I bet Carr and a few others would like to boycott also. Or at the very least play with a sack over their heads. The squeaky wheel is the one that gets the attention - the wheel that falls off is just replaced.

    I hear Dallas is looking for some bandwagoners. Dont let the door hit you on the way out.

    We thought you left. . . Did you want us to talk to ourselves?

    I don't think being a fair weather fan is the answer. I, along with many other Texans fan, sat in that stadium last night, till the clock hit 0:00. Why? To support our team. It didn't matter what was going on, how bad the game was, or what was being said or thrown, or even shown at and to us lol.

    We are fans....simple as that.

    The Texans have a way of playing tough against tough teams, so Sunday's game could be a relief of what has happened over the past weeks. Let's hope so anyway. No boycotting here, and since I missed the game against the Titans, I look forward to retuning to Reliant and seeing the Texans give the Colts a run for their money. This too, shall pass! That could take a coaching change, though.

    Agree with Infantrycak

    I am also going to add two words of my own:

    ANGER MANAGEMENT

    True fans don't boycott bad teams. Every team has lean years and there is no team that escapes them (we just didn't think they would be here by year 4 though). Also, every team has 'true fans".....those are the fans that don't walk away or boycott the team however. The 'true fans' take the good with the bad and support the team thru the lean times....and we will see more of them. Good fans take the bad with the good. It's the bandwagon types that only want to take the good and write off the rest.

    The team is now 0-5. They are demolized. They are crushed. Since you are a fan (or at least saying it here), how do you think posts like 'fire capers club' is going to help the players. Your not happy... Hello, I dont think ANYONE is happy here, but we cant focus how bad we are doing and whos doing it, we should be focusing on how to change things with what and who we got. Now your telling the team they dont have the heart they had. With the comments i have seen from you and MANY others.. would you.. be honest, would you.

    Honestly folks, I am not happy with David Carr, but he has the gull to stick in a pocket that is collapsing to make a play. Thats guts folks. They are trying. They are working at getting better. Please let them work and give them support. They hear enough crap from everyone else, let not make it from thier fans too.

    Things really suck right now but I am glad to see so many fans staying supportive. I almost didn't read this post but after seeing the responses I am glad I did. Sports are like anything else, there is a cyclical nature and unfortunately we are in a downturn right now. There will always be that team that just can't win and nothing seems to go right and it just happens to be us at the moment. Nothing the fans say can really change anything-*****ing, whining and armchair coaching isn't gonna make it better. Expressing opinions is important but going as far as "boycotting" is rediculous-what will the Texans ever do without this guys support? The coaching staff is one thing but I feel like it is important to show support for the players no matter what. I am sure they aren't thrilled about how things are right now-anyone who has ever played sports knows that when you lose you are hard enough on yourself. I'm here all the way W or L!

    Your right.. it would make you a better fan. If Dunta says it, he is part fo the team and trying to get the team movated. If you say it, your a bench holder and expect the world. You speak to other fans.. He speaks to the team. If you cant figure that one out, then someone needs to visit college again. If P-Buc is giving his best effort, then he has a lot to learn. If he isnt, then shame on him to think he is better then he is. But do you really think he cares what you think? Hell, I dont. He dont care what I have to think either, but at least if I try to remain positive, then that will hopefully carry over to the team that we still are behind them.

    I've never missed a game, but i will miss one of the next two games for the first time ever. It's just not worth traveling 120 miles to see such a pathetic display by the home team. When i miss this game, i will listen on the radio, while fishing with the family. I'll take a good fishing trip with family over a poor texan team any day.

    Yes, which is why we should not have acquired him to be our #2 CB.

    As for boycotting, dropping out on the team doesn't speak well of you as a fan. If you want to boycott something, boycott concessions or merchandise purchases. Personally, I have spent about 10% of my gross salary this year on season tickets and trimmings. I won't spend another dime, with the product I've been sold, but I'll be there every home game, yelling for the players. If a 12th man can make a difference, I'll be part of it. That's what fans are supposed to do.
