    Last season season when we were two and zero, a lot of us (including me) were already planning a trip to dallas and not to mention everyone were saying how much great we are and how we were going to kick Dallas's ass in week 3. After Week 3 our mouth were shut or at least most of us and we went through another terrible, frustrating season. Now I feel like we haven't learned our lesson and continue to be arrogant. I love the Texans and I just want to see them in the playoffs. Remember humble wins, arrogant loses.

    There's no such thing as being "arrogantly too confident"

    In a word, no. I doubt any, few if any of us, go into gameday with no fears. We are proud of our team right now, but we haven't forgotten the past.

    We're very modest compared to some teams fans i've seen by reading other forums, especially the Colts fans despite them likely being terrible this year.

    Nothing wrong in being confident in your team though, it makes the season more enjoyable for alot of people.

    With our track record, I go into every game thinking we could win and/or lose it. Not surprised either way anymore.

    I think even the biggest koolaid sippers have that little voice in the back of their head reminding them that this team has broken their heart before. It's a lot more fun for me personally to tell that little voice that he is stupid and the Texans are going to the Super Bowl.

    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    Really? REALLY???? Last year we had NO defense! This year we have a defense that can at least rank in the top 15 -or- more importantly a helluva lot better than 30th(ish) like last season.

    Ummmm :thinking: With regards to last season's plans to Dallas, that was pretty foolish, don't you think?? That said, I wouldn't make any arrangements to Indianoplis either. However, don't think for a minute that the Texans won't make the playoffs (barring any major injuries to the likes of Andre, Matt or DeMeco or Mario)!!!


    Quit being::::

    I don't understand this. Why can't we be optimistic about the Texans as fans? Lesson learned? The most of us Texans' fans experienced ups and downs of this franchise(mostly downs). Right now, I am excited about how the Texans played against the Colts and this feeling is carrying over to the Fins game. I for one not consider to be arrogant fan but more positive and optimistic about our team than last year which is very exciting to me. So why not to be a glass half full of guy than a glass half empty guy.

    Go Texans!!!

    Tell me someone is kidding here. Or drinking. We are from Houston, land of the also rans and no accounts.

    Please, Texans, do something about this. We are very VERY tired of being everyone's sports *****. The Astros and Rockets are going nowhere fast, you are our only hope.

    Why can't we be humble?

    What does being humble as fans get us?

    Either way if we are humble or not it is not going to affect the Texans play on the field.

    I've been a fan of Houston football teams since the late 60's. I go into every game knowing we can lose.

    I like to think I'm realistic. There have been a lot of seasons where I didn't expect much from my team.

    This year I expect a lot from my team.

    What's wrong with that?

    But more importantly perhaps, what does it matter? The team is going to play as the team is going to play no matter what we, the fans, feel. There are many fanbases that are a lot more confident than this fanbase is.

    I humbly request that you stop making weird posts. I also humbly request that you if you do make more weird posts at least make them halfway literate.

    as sports fans, the texans are all houston has for right now.

    the rockets suck and will suck for awhile

    the astros suck and will suck for awhile

    the texans have sucked for the longest and is the only houston professional sports team that shows promise.

    we deserve to be optimistic and confident.
