    First straw: Brutal schedule on paper

    Second straw: No Cushing for first 4 games.

    Third straw: AJ sitting out of workouts wanting a new contract.

    Straw that broke the camel's back? Ben Tate injured and "going to miss a little time."

    I am officially in chicken little mode!!! Please football God's... give Texans fans a break and let us enjoy a successful season!!!

    I'm not pushing the panic button yet, but my finger is hovering over it.

    Well, on the bright side, no one should be disappointed this year. My expectations for next year keep getting lower every day.

    Not worried. Seen much worse offseasons come out with success in the NFL with a lot less talent than we have.

    I'm going to be worried every offseason, even if things are going smoothly, until the Texans make the playoffs.

    Speaking of playoffs, Joker are you still suffering through your bet (or oath) or did you finally end it??

    Every time I obtain carnal knowledge of another chick, a little prayer to the Joker goes out in my head. ;)

    I'm more excited about next season than worried. I'm not too worried about our "tough" schedule. We won't know how tough it really is until the end of next season. The Cowboys may be the team that goes 6-10 for all we know, along with the Giants, and Baltimore. It wouldn't be unheard of.

    I understand probability isn't on my side. But that's okay. That's what gets me pumped.

    Dude, it's May. I am not going to freak out about the NFL in May. We've got four more crappy months of Astros baseball to worry about before we go into vagina mode for the Texans (no offense to vaginas).

    Time for that coach of ours to earn a his paycheck right now and get the team together instead of waiting until we've lost to Indy twice to give his "who's with me?" speech.

    We are just getting the bad stuff out early this year. Duh! And why anyone is even remotely worried about Tates situation is beyond me.

    I'm actually more worried about our future than this season. If Andre is holding out, how much do you think Mario is going to want?

    Nudge me in a couple months. If these issues are still there I might worry, but I reckon things will be just fine.

    My thoughts as well, things like these are just the way the business goes.

    Good teams would over come all of this and beat the odds hopefully the Texans will prove the can do the the same and 2010 will be a sign of good things to come. My fingers are crossed.

    I think that adversity can be a good thing for football teams. I think that it gives the players an edge and they play with a chip on their shoulder. I fully expect the Texans to come out like gangbusters the first game. JMO.

    My biggest worry is the interior of our offensive line. Basically, its all second teamers ~ Studdard, Myers & Caldwell. Neither Studdard nor Caldwell have ever been starters & Myers well, what can I say but I just don't have faith in him.

    My second biggest worry would be the defensive line. I really hope this smaller line will work.
