    I am still shellshocked and in disbelief at what happened. I put the brim of my hat below my eyes during the end of that game because it was like watching a gruesome car wreck on the field.

    You know for most of the day I was extremely happy and felt good about our team and QB. Our defense held Indy in check and Sage and our running game looked great. Mario had 2 sacks and we were finally getting something from the rest of our lineman. Hell, Reeves and Faggins were making plays.

    If we got this game, I think we would have won 4 in a row. This game was a straight up punch to the gut. Next week there will be close to 20,000 no shows IMO. There was nothing more that I loved than going to see the Oilers and then the Texans play at home. Even I am looking at our upcoming games as a drag.

    I don't think this team can come back from this. Hello 2-4 wins at best. I am going to puke now.

    You and me both. I can't believe I waited months....f-ing months for this crap. Maybe next year I'll spend less time on these boards.

    Even at 0-3 the crowd was tremendous today. The seats were full and the people were loud. Games like this will put an end to that in a hurry. The SR610 guys were saying the same thing after the game. This franchise is killing it's fanbase.

    Agree with a lot of what you're saying there, I was really happy with a lot of the things we did today.

    However I disagree with the 2-4 wins part. The worst thing about todays loss, for me, is that we played, and I think should be a .500 team at the least. I still think we can get 5-6 wins this season, its just not good enough though, and we should be doing better and learning from past experiences on how to grind out the victories, and stop doing stupid stuff. Its not a bad team, just bad decisions, which makes this all the more annoying!

    I hope to god that the same people turned up next week, sounded amazing on the telly, but too many of these sucker punches will see the Reliant becoming a graveyard.

    The last time I brought up the Texans to a stranger I got the response, "the Texans are kinda gay."

    I have the same feeling. I'm glad I'm leaving the country tomorrow. I'll try it again on next Sunday.

    I agree with everything you said. I thought the Texans had hit rock bottom with last week's OT loss. With a 17 point lead over the Colts in the 4th quarter, I felt the Texans had turned their season around. I was wrong. This is rock bottom.

    The Texans can either stay at the bottom, or build upon the positive aspects of Sunday's performance. Gary Kubiak's job rides on the outcome. There's no way the Texans can market Kubiak as the head coach in '09 unless the this team goes on an extended winning streak. Starting next Sunday.

    I thought the booing at the end of the game was fairly indicative that the fan base is getting tired of the same old crap year after year. First time I personally have heard the Texans get booed like that at home.

    We should have won that because Indy is going to kill us when Bob and the rest of that o/d line come back.

    Today I didn't even watch it live. I didn't care to. I've got way too much crap around my house that needs to be done post-Ike to waste my time watching the Texans find some new way to look inept. That was my reasoning so I turned on the DVR and went out to the yard to clear some more branches and leaves.

    Around the end of the 3rd I came in to take a break and saw that the Texans were on top. I still had that "They'll screw it up somehow" feeling in my gut and went back outside to keep working. I came in after the game to see that this had happened and I'm disgusted with them but I'm not about to blow up or anything. This is the kind of crap I expect out of McNair's mess. I'm sure a lot of people who don't care anything about the final score had a good time today and I'm sure Bob is going to make himself a bunch of money in the long run and the Texans will continue to suck in every way that football team can possibly measure success. It's what they do and how they do it.

    More likely a three game streak at the end of the year to bring the record to 6-10.

    Take an "It's Casserly's Fault"
    Add one "In Kubes We Trust"
    Throw in a "Rick Smith Is Doing A Great Job"

    Mix them up with the streak and stay the course for one more year. Fans will expect playoffs but find reason to be happy with building an 8-8 non-losing team. A two game improvement!

    From my vantage point there was alot of empty seats...my vantage point being my sofa!

    I dunno if people were tailgating or whatever but it didn't look full.

    I'm tired of this crap feeling like normal with the Texans. It's the same old bad luck year in and year out. This town has a jinx on it's football teams. That was a brutal way to end our 100th franchise game.

    If we continue to lose and get a high pick in the draft, it'll eat away at our cap even more. This is going to make it even HARDER to become competitive through FA and such. We've all seen the ridiculous figures top 5 picks make. C'mon Texans!!!!

    Good, I hope our fan base keeps tumbling. If losing for 7 frekain years doesn't get McNair to act like he got fire under his ass, I hope seeing no one at Reliant on Sunday and no profits coming from your fanbase get you to act like you give a damn about this team.

    Oh, but Reliant will be full next week, its Hispanic Heritage Day!!!!!!!!!!!! All the fans will want to see that. But just wait till the game against Detroit. Its Homecoming!!!!!!!!! Gosh, who will I ask to the Homecoming Dance? I better start thinking about that!

    A Salute to the Military against the Bengals. OK, that can be pretty cool if the Marine precision team is there.

    But I have November 9 circled on my calendar. Liberty White Day!!!!!!!! Yippe, we are wearing, not just white, but Liberty White!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Monday Night Football means Battle Red. Not some sissified Red, but Battle Red!!!!! Battle Red!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Monday Night Game could be switched to a game with playoff implications.

    TNT Rivalry against Possum Holler!
    The only way that game will be any fun is if Bud Adams walks around visiting the tailgating areas without a group of body guards.

    And finally, on December 28 is Fan Appreciation Day! Two years ago, my row finally was called and we all won a "prize" A coupon book to receive a discount for a round of golf somewhere in the Woodlands. YeeeHawww!

    The crafty marketing department at Texans headquarters have ways of making you come to the games even the Texans team does not.

    If ticket and merch sales slump to a new low hopefully Gentleman Bob will realize that his team actually needs to win.

    Right now all the guy does is stand there and count his money
