    Shaub just threw a pic 6 but this has been a good game. Both sides started. Slow, but adjustments were made in the second half. Defense throwing a shut. Out in the second half & look at that special teams.

    There's no moral victories in the NFL...

    We're 2-3, there's not much to be proud about. Being proud was good the last couple of seasons. This team doesn't know how to build off a 8-8 season and take the next step.

    I thik he means the way they battled back and made a game out of this when it could easily have been a blowout.

    To be down 21 to that offense and hold them scoreless the entire second half (their defense scored) was something to be proud of - win or lose.

    To have a chance to force OT after the way the entire game went .... yeah .

    Us battling back doesn't surprise me. Us battling back, tying it then losing it doesn't surprise me either.

    I'm not proud of this team. This is a four quarter game...Not two, but then again, the Texans always start out slow. Regardless of whether it's a slow start to a season, or slow to start a game....They need to play 4 quarters, for 16 games.

    I'm not proud, this is all their fault.

    That was a good game, the first half lack of offense lost it for us. The Texans are a frustrating talented inconsistent team that--if they play as well as they did in the 2nd half--can win 9+ this year. There are so many variables in this though yet our secondary shut down Fitzgerald and Boldin in the second half REEVES made a difference because he is at least on his man and not leaving him open. We played well...we as fans can be optimistic...its a hell of a lot better than starting off 0-4 like we did last year. Don't give up on them now.

    also, Chris Brown isn't a power back.

    glass half full: we've been in the last 4 games..

    half empty: we've only won 2 of them.

    Houston Texans...FINDING ways to make each loss more heartbreaking since its inception.

    Great job by the team fighting back. We could have easily laid down after being down by 21 at half.

    We have the talent here. I have less and less confidence in Kubiak.

    Bernard Pollard is a vast improvement over what we had so far this year.

    I'm not proud of losing, but at least we saw our defense play extremely well for 2 straight weeks

    I'm happy they didn't lie down after being down 21-0. In the end, though, that doesn't much matter. It's the kind of thing that might have mattered a couple years ago, or maybe last year after the hurricane. Right now, it just means they came back and lost.

    It's just failure of a different kind.

    Giving up 3 first half TD drives (and what would have been a 4th if not for a rare fumble) is not "extremely" well. They played well for half of the game.
