    I mean it. I watched the second half of the game today in a kind of unfocused semi-nap because I'd finished working outside and just came in to crash. I watched them choke the entire thing up and didn't even care. No high blood pressure, no cursing at the television set. Nothing. It didn't matter to me at all. Anyone else at the "I just don't care anymore" stage?

    I started to curse and the cursing turned into laughter. I'll bet that there are at least 3 high schools in Houston that could beat the Texans. I was glad to see Tebow build his confidence and his numbers.

    This is what should scare McNair. Apathy is setting in.

    100% agree. I was talking to my father when the game was 17-0 and my mother pipes in, "don't worry, they'll figure out a way to blow it." I didn't even try to argue.

    I think the best word to describe my mood while watching the 4th quarter was "bemused." I just sort of smirked, rolled my eyes, and in that moment probably saw the Texans the way the rest of the country does.

    They've become more than bad or disappointing. They're just lame now.

    Yup, hence my 'section' location under my avatar.

    I got a bunch of Texan gear for Christmas from my daughter Sam. It was extremely hard to show my excitement for it. I ONLY showed any happiness because it came from her.

    The highlight of my gifts this year was an Oiler's mini helmet autographed by Mike Rozier! Didn't even matter that much that it didn't have Earl's autograph on it.

    Oiler first and foremost! Texan second...even when it sucks to be one.

    I think just by watching the game, you show you feel obligated enough to care... thus, I seem to be the single vote for option one :)

    its apathy for a lost season. theres plenty of other teams fans feeling the same

    as much as ppl will deny it publicly or say otherwise we'll all care again by next september (assumong there is football).

    some will say they're done if kubiak is still there but they'll be right back on the bandwagon if we get a big win etc

    My wife was getting pissed off and then asked me how I could just lay there on the couch and not be annoyed. I told her I didn't really want them to lose, but it really wouldn't bother me if they did. I've been there since they hit 5-7, to be honest. Despite the protestations of thunderkyss, I knew the season was over.

    It's hard to actually care when NO ONE in the Texans Organization cares; from the Owner on Down...

    I don't know about that. I was actually surprised that the game was on when I joined in. I went into today thinking it was a noon game and when I turned the TV on I was surprised the Texans were playing. I wasn't even dead set on football. I just turned on the TV and went looking for something to watch, thought "It's Sunday, I wonder what the Texans did" and ran into their second half in the process.

    Whatever. I've been posting after Texans losses for 9 years. It's kind of a habit at this point.

    Well said TA. I think that there are a lot of Oiler first fans on this site. I'm a little envious.....you got a signed Oiler helmet! Merry Christmas to you and yours.

    I came to this realization today while I was driving home from Dallas for Christmas. I've always checked to see what time the game was, just in case I could A) make it home before kickoff if possible, or B) postpone leaving until after the game if possible. Today I didn't even check because it mattered that little to me. I got home just now to check the score to see how much we lost by.

    My vote:

    What the hell is happening to me??? I dealt with the Oilers losses, but always showed up and was passionate! I've been dealing with the Astros and still stayed passionate. Same for the Rockets..... For eight seasons, I was passionate about the Texans and now this in the ninth season.. I just don't care as much as I thought I would.

    As JB said earlier in another thread, "Apathy has set in!"

    as I put on another thread

    my thoughts on the discussion of rooting for the Texans to win or for them to lose


    I have no feelings on it. I am just a wingman for the Texans for 3 hours on Sunday.

    It would be like Bill and I going to a gentlemens club and he starts talking to a woman and she has a friend with her.. My job is to just keep her ugly friend from being bored while Bill scores

    it's what a wingman does
