    I wish there was a way to put Bob McNair on notice.

    That was a really good article. Im just waiting for when David Carr comes back to Houston and pulls a Vince Young on us in the 4th quarter for the Browns.


    Houston Fans get what they deserve.

    I've been passionately supporting Houston's NFL teams for twice as long as you've been alive. Exactly what is it that I deserve? (besides free mental health care)

    This year:

    Cook fumbles
    Gado fumbles
    Aj drops a pass

    Years before

    Carr leads team with 1:50 against the Colts, Manning beats us

    Carr leads team back against the Titans with like 2:00 and McNair leads Titans back to beat us

    Carr faces 4th and 1 against the Jags and scores the TD by jumping and reaching for the End Zone



    but you cant teach an old dog new tricks, if people want to think Carr has not taken us in the past, thats your call.

    The last time the Texans were above .500 was Week 8 of the 2004 season when they were sitting at 4-3.

    Since then, they are 9-29.

    That's really all that matters to me.

    Why are people taking jabs at Bob McNair? How much of a punk do you have to be to take a shot at Bob McNair?

    You wouldnt have a team to sit and be unthankful for if it wasnt for McNair. Additionally.. he has never owned a team... he has no experience at this.. he is still learning as well. Give the guy a break.

    Any time you feel like Bob McNair is at fault.. keep in mind that he put up your portion of the 700 million bucks it took to pull this team to Houston.

    ***holes

    Like a little punk high school brat screaming at his parents cause they bought him a Chevy instead of a BMW. You disgust me.

    Quoting Ric Weeney...I mean Sweeney:
    And finally, Houston Texans Fans
    If the vast majority of you do get your wish, and Carr is leading the Denver Wildcats to an Arena Bowl Championship next year, then you better stop being a bunch of whiney, insufferable females at that certain time of the month.


    Gee Ric, I'm sorry I offended you......but you can take your "wild-ass opinion" and stick it where the sun don't shine. Go be a Cowgirls fan or something. :twocents:

    Grid,

    There is just allot of fan frustration surrounding high visibility decisions made in the last few drafts. McNair made a large finical commitment to the NFL, but with an expectation of future return. Many fans are making a large financial commitment, relatively speaking, and also want to see a return. The are both in the same boat and that is why even McNair has admitted to being frustrated himself.

    That is all this is, and as the team improves under Kubes – things will turn around.

    It is just bad timing that the team is in a rebuilding period and team is also faced with the VY\RB\Mario scenario. They’ll just have to weather the storm – but I don’t feel sorry for them or lose sleep over it… they are in a good position and will just have to weather the storm…

    I don't pay much attention to anything they say on HPF, a site I have no use for. I'd almost forgot they exist. Their soapbox editorializing reminds me of a certain former TV sports guy that was eventually fired named Dan Patrick.

    This Sweeney guy sounds like a relic from the pre-PC days.
    I dunno, but its kinda nostalgic to hear some old-time Archie Bunker-speak.
