    Just like almost every other team in Houston. The Oilers suffered the same fate. If it isn't a flag it is a bad play call or a BS call by the refs and the list goes on. The 94-95 Rockets were the last team to bring this city a ring and well now there are the winning Dynamos now but that's all. Even though the Texans have only had two HC's in their short history very seldom does any Houston sports team picks the right man to get a team over the hump it's like they take them to a certain point and then that is it. Now maybe the Rockets will still get there with Rick and the Texans will get there with their next HC I hope so as I support all Houston sports teams. I am not ragging on anyone or about anything here. I just feel like this bad luck goes way back in time. I am left to wonder why all of the bad luck. What have we ever done to deserve it? It just sucks all around to be a Hoston sports fan hopefully the tide will change one day and we'll be proud of all our Houston sports teams I sure hope so and I think we all feel the same way right now. All we ever get is life sucked out of us as the one and only positive our of being a Houston sports fan and it's getting very old and tiring. I know we'd all agree on this.

    The problem is other than Les Alexander, Houston has had HORRIBLE owners. They were either cheap, crazy, indifferent, etc. Uncle Drayton can jump off a bridge and Bob McNair to me is a bumbling buffoon.

    I am beginning to think the Texans are poorly coached.

    No curse, it's just more reason to appreciate winning organizations. If it were easy everyone would be a winner.

    I know. Who thought Gary was the right guy and why? Is it just being a cheap owner?

    You would rather have a Jerry Jones type of owner. If anyone says yes, I might just retire my Texans fandom alltogether....

    Cursed is when you make the playoffs more often than not but the calls or the bounces never go your way in the playoffs. Like the Browns in the late 80's. You can't be cursed when you can't even win more than you lose year in and year out.

    That's just it they do not get hardly any call late in games or fumbles or whatever.

    The Texans aren't cursed, they're just incompetent. If they actually had a competent FO/HC/players/business model/plan and still lost games........then they would be "cursed".

    The Rockets are cursed :brickwall: The Texans are just flat out incompetent. (and while we're at it, at the moment you can go ahead and toss the Astros in with them as well)

    I don't think an outside force needs to be invoked to explain the losses. McNair says it's the players (and some of them prove it many weeks), Kubiak says it's on him (and he proves it every week). Doesn't that cover it?

    You can't put the troubles of the Texans on a curse. The blame belongs
    to the people who have the power to change it, namely the organization.
    Once the organization begins to demand excellence in every aspect of
    its operation, we will continue to have mental lapses at key points of
    games and seasons.

    Texans just haven't learned how to make their own breaks

    play with confidence and a chip on their shoulder .. more importantly back the confidence up with their play.

    only game I can think of where the Texans made their breaks was the Miami game.. oh so long ago and yet after that they went back into their shell

    There is no curse. You either have good people running your organization or you don't. It's that simple. YOu either have an owner who is willing to compete financially with a great GM and HC running his organization that will spend the money that it takes to build a winner or you don't. You either have the right guys that can lead an organization and over achieve more often than when he under achieves or you don't. You either have a franchise QB that will be a damn good one year in or year out or you don't. Any team in the NFL can compete and build a winning franchise, but you've got to have these elements in place.
