This was pointed out to me last night during a very heated household argument about whether coaching or personnel is most to blame for the Texans' current situation. As the person who blames coaching more, because I think the coaches are coaching to lose by coaching not to lose, I was asked to ponder: If it's really about loser's mentality, did the fans and the city of Houston help create that loser's mentality? When we said, it's okay in Year __ to keep the games close? When we said it's okay in Year ____ to only win X number of games? When we said that all we wanted to see is improvement? Should we have said, from the very beginning, "we want the Texans to win - period?" Has our "it's okay to 'play well'" endorsement from Years 1-3 helped the kill the passion for winning? Lately, I have heard Dom Capers and David Carr say things that are just unacceptable in a competitive environment. Maybe we weren't patient for too long. Maybe we should have never been patient. Food for thought.
