I love this Message Board, but it really messes a guy up. All offseason, I hear great debates, articles, footage, etc of the Texans, and get pumped up. Theres this psychological theory called "Cognitive Dissonance" which, in its simplest form, argues that if a person says something enough times, they'll eventually believe it to be true. Now I'm not saying I thought we'd go 16-0 this season, but before the regular season started, I seriously thought wwe had a chance at a winning record. Looking back, I know that was wishful thinking considering we are rebuilding, but I'm just saying. I'm not going to give up on the team or saying I think things are going poorly--I know we're a rebuilding team and its going to take time to turn things around. Its just that when I look ahead on the schedule, their isn't 1 game that I KNOW we will win. As bad as the Titans, Browns, Raiders, etc are this year, the difference in skill level isn't so great that we don't have a legitimate chance of losing. It just comes with the territory of being a team starting 5 rookies. I thought Kubiak was a quick fix. The recent roster moves, the hybrid schemes, the rotating depth chart all scream rebuilding. I know its crazy to think that everything would be fixed immediately, but I think thats a product of spending too much time here lol. Kubiak is going to take his time, and while I know it'll be better in the long run, its tough knowing it. Does this ever get discouraging to you? And if so, how do you deal with it? I've been a Texans fan since the beginning, and I'm not going to stop any time soon. Its just tough to go into every game hoping for a win rather than expecting one.
