    Fire Kubiak. Fire Shanahan. Cut Brown. They simply don't have it.

    No fire??? from me.

    I am just done.

    Keep Kubiak, Shanahan, Bush, janitor, whoever.

    This franchise simply refuses to take the training wheels off.


    Call me back when they make the playoffs.

    Adios.

    I'm not done with the team, but, this is not a play-off caliber team. We need to stop kidding ourselves. This team might not make it to 8-8

    This team doesn't know how to finish games off, or win at the end. Look at Indy. They have been behind in the 4th qtr 4 games in a row and each time they have won. That team knows how to win games. I truly believe there is a very fine line between Indy and Houston, but they know how to win and their GD FG kicker makes kicks when it counts.

    Okay then done-guys. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

    On second thought, let the door hit you. Really hard.

    You know I'm pretty pissed too, but see ya later, we don't need you. This is a solid team that needs the officials to stay the F out. There was one game this year that weren't winnable, and three that were so influenced by the officials that there should be a congressional investigation. If I still lived in Houston, I'd be following the Zebras to the airport and beating all thier asses right now.

    Right on. All the haters can suck it. At least the Texans give effort, if you're a shitty fan then good luck with that. Don't need you when we win again.

    A running back stiff arms you? You grab that arm, use it as a handle and either break it or use it to slam him to the ground.

    A QB runs up the middle at you? You turn your body into a missile and do your best to cripple him.

    If a QB runs at you with impunity all game long you realize that you are paid a kings ransom to play a child's game for a living and decide rather you play the game for fortune or glory. If you play for fortune then you don't have a problem.

    If you play for glory then you decide that you're playing that game for FREE and hit the SOB so hard that his grand children will be cursing you out decades from now because you hit him so hard that he doesn't know who he is any more. Guys who play for fortune get NOWHERE. Guys who play for glory get gold jackets, Lombardi trophies and rings. The Texans need to decide if they are mercenaries or glory hounds. Last I checked glory hounds win titles.
    Just ask NBA fortune hunter Charles "Old Ringless" Barkley.

    Exactly, our team left it all on the field tonight, and as choked as I am right now I will still support them. Fair-weather fans can take a hike.

    Are you really upset with our effort tonight? We didn't lose from lack of trying.

    This is still the youngest team in the NFL, with many of its key players
    not yet even in their primes. I think you're quitting on them a year
    too soon. I say bring everybody back next year, and watch them shine.
    This year ain't over. They can still go 11-5.

    i'm as close to jumping off an overpass as anyone right now, but there is no way i would suggest firing this staff. for as far as we've come in 3 and a half seasons, we WILL be that much farther as our youngest team in the NFL matures. for all the flaws, for all the poor decisions, we have built an outstanding base to build from. another coaching or management group may get more with less, but we're not done building and that's exactly what i see - building. kubiak doesnt miss fieldgoals in consecutive games, he doesnt throw a flag on an obvious non foul (horsecollar), he's not throwing the ball to player's knees all game, and he doesnt fumble in the redzone as we've done this season. i'm not willing to throw away what this group has done with next to nothing, in the hopes of trading a couple wins for a long term downturn.

    our players and our coaches arent going anywhere. next season we'll still have pollard and mario and demeco and schaub and johnson and slaton and the rest as an extremely young and extremely talented group, and we'll have another offseason of insanely good drafting and accurate free agent movement to keep building. Not For Long - i plan on being a Texan for a VERY long time and i for one want 2009 to finish strong with an outside playoff chance, and each consecutive season to continue that building.

    Solid team? What are you talking about? Solid teams don't choke at the end of four games when you have a chance to tie.

    Stop the whining about the officials crap. The Texans got away with a trip on Young earlier in the quarter. It goes both ways. The officials didn't lose this game- we lost the game because we couldn't stop Young on third down and our offense, which put up 34 on these guys in Nashville, scored 17 points. Anyway you look at it, that's weak.

    Tonight was the 1st domino in a total collapse. No excuses, bye week to prepare, and you knew what the Titans brought to the game. Stop their running attack, win the game. As much as I detest the referee's, we continue to allow them to affect the games by keeping it close enough for it too effect it. With the Colts, and Jaguars coming up, I don't hold out much hope for this team to rebound.

    I have started the "Cut Andre Johnson" thread because he dropped a lot of balls. I also started the "Cut Shaub" thread because he was almost picked off. Oh and I started the "Cut #56" thread because he got blocked a couple of times. Last but not least I think we should get rid of Pollard for not knocking the piss out of more people.


    This team serious needs to rebuild next year.

    I really don't feel like we are running the ball enough. I mean yeah I know our running game isn't the best in the league but at the same time, it seems like we don't even give it a chance. We pass the ball so much that we don't tire the opposing defense as much as we tire our offense. In ever offensive series, we need to have at least one legit run play designed in there...I think Kyle just falls in love with the creativity the pass game can make but damn man...please, some toss plays, draws, or something shit.

    The only guy I want gone ASAP is Chris Brown. The guy is big but doesn't play big at all. Instead of hitting the holes and running a defender over for a couple yards extra, he goes down like he's 195 and gets stood up or driven back every damn time.

    I'd rather the goal line carries go to Slaton/Moats, at least they hit the hole with enough speed to make a guy miss. Brown is running right into them with no power and going straight to the ground everytime.
