    He feels People are already down on the team. What are your thoughts?


    Gary,
    How was the movie premiere? Hope all is well. What do you think of the team? Can't believe people are fown on us in the preseason! I have high hopes for this year. Look fwd to seeing you at the games!

    I can't say that I'm one that's "fown" on the team. I think they'll win 12 games.

    But, really? Winston can't understand how people might be down on the Texans? The team has never had a winning season and has played like crap this preseason. Is there really no way to see how people might be a bit wary of this team?

    That just means there's expectations from the fan base . When your wanting to win but haven't you have tendency for the dreaded ... here we go again attitude .

    The O should be good this season like it was last season I hope they score more TD's once they are inside the redzone. On D, I am just fown on the secondary and the DT's.

    Tell him there are plenty of fans out there who are hopeful and excited. It is just the debbie downers who make all the comments and get all the attention. The vocal minority.

    Yep ... but in the salary cap era , all teams have weaknesses . The object is to overcome them by hook or crook . If your secondary is bad you better have a pass rush . Of course if the get 4.5 yards a pop on the ground and have third and one ... that's a problem .

    Chris Brown should help in the redzone along with the OL having another year together . I think having Casey as do anything type player may help also .

    You tell Eric not to worry about us fans. Just win 'em all and he'll be fine. It's great that he emailed you personally. You're a lucky man, gary.

    Tell him the smart fans know what's up. I don't think we're too high or too low right now. The thing that people tend to forget, is that the haters always scream louder than the non-haters... so it's not that there's more of them, there's just more of them that bother to post and call radio shows.

    Kind of like when you read reviews online of certain things. People are more compelled to post their grievances than their praises.

    I think the Texans just need to go out and play like they can and that will solve everything . I got into a discussion the other day with a guy saying the Texans don't have offense and need a QB . He said that drafting Mario was a reach and blah , blah , blah , ... I'll stop for a second and say talking about your team is like talking about your job or wife , I can do it but don't you dare ... anyways I started rattling off numbers and said maybe he should keep up he wants to be in the conversation :scarygirl: . They need to quiet those folks up ... stay healthy Matt ... please . :aggressive:

    The O only has control over how they preform on the football field. As far as the D goes they have to play well also. Every one go out and do their job and the fans should shutup.
