    Agree 100%. There were no excuses for sure last year.

    My biggest issue with that fiasco was the Texans, once again, not being able to figure out if they want to go for it or not, and when they finally do decide to do it, they're running out of time and have to burn a TO. I don't think I've ever seen them run up to the LOS and just get the play off before the other team knows what's going on.

    Make the damn decision, get your guys to the line and go!!!

    But the double TO was pretty stupid. If you're burning a TO anyway, why not just throw the damn challenge flag? The football IQ of this organization just really seems lacking.

    bruised butt

    The #Texans are signing QB Alex McGough to the active roster, source said. This was in the works before Deshaun Watson bruised his butt last night. #Jaguars were interested in bringing McGough back after Nick Foles injury. Instead, a promotion from practice squad in Houston.

    I can understand that more than the people are "depressed"

    Angry I get. But not depressed. It's one game.

    I want to see them play at that level next week & I want them to beat the Chargers after that.

    If not, then maybe I'll be depressed.

    It doesn't matter to me. It was so close I'd have threw the flag & used the time like a time out to call a 4th & short play.

    If you're thinking about calling a timeout anyway & your man is laying on the line to gain... worse case scenario you lose a challenge. Best case scenario you lose neither a timeout or a challenge & you get a 1st down.

    BO'bs way, lose two timeouts, a challenge & you're feeling lucky they didn't penalize you for calling back to back timeouts.

    Pffff following rules now wow I better be careful. I don’t know why but I figured you’d be one of the rebels. Well good luck in your new role.

    Please allow me to clear the air about “depressing”...
    Don’t know if you read any of my other responses but I’m not “depressed” about this team.

    It’s “depressing” to lose in that fashion. Your QB that has huge stones just got them rocked all game and got you a lead with 37 seconds left in the game.
    Then you (you and your refer to the D) go down meekly.

    That’s “depressing”. Not the game. I have a different outlook on this team after that game. Healthy, this team is gonna give it hell season.

    Like I said before , I expect typical Texans …. beat up on the weak sisters and get exposed by the better teams.

    Same thing we've seen for the last decade+.

    See I don’t see it as getting exposed. Again we forced it to come down to a field goal with less than 30 seconds against the one guy that might can stand toe to toe against Brady in his house which is legendary for being so hostile to visiting teams. Yeah some stupid stuff happened but we still played if not on Saints level then close enough to make them work for it.

    This was probably the game of the year. Or top 3. And it’s only week 1. Looking forward to the season.

    Semantics.

    Bottom line is that the result was as expected against a top quality opponent - a mark in the L column.

    They are gonna have to beat some quality opponents to change my expectations going into those games against quality opponents.

    That’s fair but at least they weren’t completely destroyed like some predicted.

    I will admit it was much closer than I thought it would be. I expected the Aints to run off and hide early on and the Texans to close the gap a little in garbage time.
