    Simple question, yes or no. You can get all detailed or what not in your response, but basically the question is have you given up on them & that can mean anything you want it to mean.

    Answer yes, but still root for them on Sunday. If it works for you, it works for you. Answer no, but have given up all hope for them to win the Super Bowl now, or anytime in the Kubiak/Schaub era….. it’s all good.

    My answer is no. I have not given up on my Houston Texans. I know they’re still answering the same “adversity” question they’ve been answering for the better part of a decade, but I still think there’s plenty of time to right this ship. We may not win this division, we may be playing for a wild card week 17…

    But we’re going to win the Super Bowl in the meadowlands.

    I've given up on MS, I think I've seen a large enough sample size to realize he is what he is, an average qb incapable of making a play outside of normal play parameters. In order for this team to do anything, its gonna have to be on the backs of the running game and defense.

    Schaubiak = Yes

    Texans organization = No! This ain't nothing compared to the 2-14 era

    I guess technically for this season yes. But I agreed with the writer before the season that said this was an 8-8 team. I felt like too many fans thought too highly of the team.

    I will keep watching, rooting and hoping...but I don't believe in this team. I don't believe they have a chance in hell at going to the superbowl.

    Of course they could dig deep, get some breaks and get it done but that's about the last thing I expect.

    yes.

    until schaub and kubiak are gone.

    I mean even if we get a new qb, he's gonna be handcuffed by kubiak.

    Maybe Kubiak loosens up a bit and allow 3 option audible plays instead of two.

    Given up being a Texans fan? Nope I will always be a fan.


    Given up that we will win the Superbowl this year? YES. Lots of folks came in with high expectations, its only 4 games but we are headed the wrong direction.

    No reason to be a homer and start being realistic. With Gary and Shaub it's not looking to good at all.

    I'll play your silly game. The season is too young and we are 2-2. Even though the first two wins could have and probably should have been losses, other teams in the past have rallied after horrible starts and come on strong to win it all. It could happen, but not as long as this team continues to show up for just a half, nor as long as we don't find a solution to crappy QB play (it really is on Schaub ya know---if you are honest), nor as long as Kubiak starts his turtle routine. We have to learn to put our opponents away.

    so judging by all the yes votes, a lot of you guys think schaub is going to turn it around?

    because that's the only way this ship gets righted.

    of course not. i've had time to clear my head after the last game but my opinions are the same. i've finished with schaub. i am positive that he's giong to be an anchor and the piece that keeps us from going all the way. i think we have the ideal coaches in kubiak and wade. both have proven systems that work exceptionally well, and our roster is stacked after building a team with one player 7 years ago. to that, we have a TON of talent and we'll finish the season with a strong record. there's no reason to give up, we knew this was going to be a tough stretch even if schaub wasnt holding us back, and after 16 games our talent will even out this rough spot.

    Outplayed the Super Bowl media favorite Seahawks and tripped ourselves into a loss. Outplayed the SB Champs and short-bussed our way into a loss.

    Yeah, I quit. Going to burn my counterfeit jersey and be an Astros fan. :hankpalm:

    My thought exactly...but...


    I hate to say this:

    A lot of information has been exposed to us after the loss to Seattle. I mean, I did not realize until then, that Kubiak had so much control over what offensive plays are called. I always felt Dennison controlled much of that (not that I was satisfied), but a head coach needs to find ways for the team to win and I have not seen one change that would suggest it is even taken into the next week's game plan. Nothing new. I have come to the conclusion that our team lacks the skillsets to defeat soundly, an opposing team. I do not see their "fire" along the sidelines like I see in other teams.

    The cookie-cutter offensive plays have become, well...offensive.

    I must admit that after the highs I was experiencing during the first half of the game against Seattle, and then the hard realization of the loss in the second half; I lost my interest to even watch any more football the rest of the day. I was hard-pressed to watch the Saints/Dolphins game last night. The only reason I watched it was to delight at the fact that an unbeaten team would fall, and to me that's kind of sick.

    Why does it have to be us Houston fans that suffer oh so much?

    I never gave up on the Oilers, and I'll never give up on the Texans.

    Doesn't mean I won't b!tch about what I think is wrong with them though. But, I think the poll and the question is more along the lines of have I given up on this season? Nope. They can still turn all this around. It's why I watch every Sunday. If they win, I'll be happy until the first game the lose, then I'll be in here b!tching about what I think went wrong.

    I'm a fan, so I think my behavior is fairly typical.

    Meh no.

    The division is all that matters. When you look at the Titans next games they are all very losable.

    The Colts will be a tougher out, but if Seattle beats Indy (which is likely) and Texans get a tough win then they are right back on track to doing what they want to do.

    I'm not concerned with winning the regular season championship. We were in that running last year. By this time last year we were Denver. Beating up teams, blowing out teams, everyone praised with how balanced we were, some had us going to the superbowl...etc etc...I'd rather be the battle tested team. That team usually does well in the playoffs.

    Schaub can turn it around. Stranger things have happened in the NFL.

    This is still a really good football team.

    Hell, we beat the Seahawks, who are another very good football team, for more than 3 quarters.

    It comes down to Kubiak for me. Does he change his mindset and stop being predictable? I don't know, I hope so though.

    I know everyone's big concern is Schaub, but he is the best QB we have for this Kubiak led system. I don't see Schaub as our QB next year, but I do for this year. He has to make the plays when they count and we will have a fighting chance to win.

    And please to God, no more pick 6's for the man!

    No.

    Who gives up on a four quarter game because they are dissatisfied with the outcome of the first quarter?

    Who does that?

    I hope the team doesn't think like some of the so-called fanbase does. "Oh woe is us. After four games we're only 2 and 2, we'll NEVER get to the Super Bowl now... we may as well quit."

    Who.
    Does.
    That??

    Too many warriors on this team for them to give up on this season and for me to give up on them.

    Just cant fathom giving up on a team after 4 weeks sitting at .500. We get Duane Brown back and this team is going to put a run together, and just maybe we are clicking at the end of the season, the opposite of the last two seasons.

    The offseason is long and brutal and in no way is this year even close to being over. Get over it!! We have a TON of huge games this year, and I have a feeling things are going to get real exciting for us. We are just paying our dues right now. :)

    While that may be true, all it reveals is that I'm insane, not wrong. :)
