    god the stands are totally empty. Way to go Houston "avid" football fans. Every "biggest game in Texans history" we have the results are the same. Is "playoffs" what it's going to take? Or would a 7-2 record bring people out to kickoff?

    How do you know this wasn't near the end of the game. Fans leaving early isn't exclusive to Houston.

    I'd like to play...

    If you play in high quality and pause around the 10 second mark. Magnify as much as possible without blurrying the picture... looks like a 4th and 2 coming up. I do need more people looking at it for confirmation. It's really really tough to see but SOMEBODY should be able to see.

    I looked at the play by play at NFL.com. there were three 4th and 2s. Two coming right before the half. Another at the 5:55 mark in the 3rd. I'm hoping folks were just going to beat the halftime beer rush.

    Here's a pic at 10:10 mark in the 4th.

    Here's one from the 1st quarter.

    Did people leave early? Yes. The exodus began after Thomas Jones' TD run. I had given up on the game earlier, and I was watching Kubiak on the sideline, exclusively. He remained about 20-30 yards from the LOS, rarely interacting with players or other coaches. Still a sore spot with me. Barrett can blame who he wants for the Texans inability to make the playoffs (Colts, Bengals, Texan fans). I know whom I'm blaming.

    What gesture does Jones do at the end? Does he throw up a Hookem Horns?

    Why football or other athletes feel the need to throw up gang signs is beyond me.

    Both Jenkins and the fans who gave Jones the finger were wrong. Call me weird but when I am at a game I don't even boo the other team. I feel as if I'm there to respectfully watch the game. When the other team scores they are booed. Why? Last I checked that was the the goal of the game and you should not get angry at the other team because they are just doing their job. If their is anyone who the fans should boo it should be their own team but I don't even boo them because they have worked hard to get where they are and I would not want anyone to come to my job and boo me. I wish all players and fans would respect each other and just go out and play the game and have fun if you are a fan. I still cheer on my favorite team when they do well during the game and get angry when they lose don't get me wrong but I don't blame the other team because my team had key injuries or just layed a big fat egg out there or even because the refs had an impact on the game. I do not take it out on the other team their fans at all I just say good game and move on because it is not their fault and on Monday morning I am already excited about the next game JMO.

    Not sure if it was a gang sign, I couldn't make it out. I did see the Texans fan giving the ole #1 salute.

    Now that's some evidence. Point taken. I was at the game, I don't remember feeling like the place was full. I'm sitting in the 600's. Those were are all field level shots and you can barely count Mezza fans anyway. I will admit that half full Mezza seating is pretty awesome!

    Here's a few from the same excellent bullpen photo source.
    [​IMG]

    This is from the first series. If we can assume that this snapshot is a "snapshot" of the stadium seating in the first series we can deduce that there are mutliple groups of empty seats even in the easy to get to first level seats where as up top there are many, many more.

    [​IMG]
    Here's yet another.

    I don't think complaining that Reliant stadium isn't full would find much challenge most of the time. I'm glad to see the jewelry rattlers were in their seats late in the 1st. This fan base is taxed with lethargy and an inability to break down their tailgating at a reasonable time. It's a real issue. You guys that are in your seats at kickoff know exactly what I'm talking about. The place is half full at times. Even during the "Biggest game in Texans Histroy" games Texans fans struggle to find their seats by kickoff.

    I've seen post from fans that are at ground level before and often times there is a discrepancy between their perceptions of the stadiums "fullness" and mine up in 600. I'll be sitting in the bullpen for several games this year. (Please come and say hello or tell me what you really think of me:).) I'm curious to see if my perception is altered as well.

    As to Lucky's take on Kubiak's sideline positioning, It's very possible that he's trying to dig us out with the playbook that he designed. You have to admit that as a realistic possibility.

    There are several factors that contributed to the Texans missing the playoffs. Where Gary Kubiak was standing after the Thomas Jones TD was not one of them.

    Have a safe and fun 4th of July everyone.

    Also, one other point I'd like to make is football just like any other sport is just a game so just enjoy watching it.

    Yup. Good point. Football is just a game.

    However, for all the fans that get upset when an opposing player gets into the endzone: be mad at your own D for allowing it. Don't be mad at Peyton for throwing Tds. Be mad at your D for allowing him to. No QB can throw tds when he is wrapped up and sacked afterall.

    Your team went out and messed up so blame them not the other team who is getting pay to preform. I agree fans spend money on tickets and sales and should be pissed when the team plays like crap but if that becomes a problem every week then I'll just stay home. But I won't ever boo the other team for just doing their job. I'll sure write letter to mine though explaining how I feel and will not renew my season tickets that is for sure. If your team contines to go out there and lays an egg and you continue to go to the game and waste your money there is not anyone to blame but you JMO.

    That dude's lucky he didn't yell at me like that. I would have run on the field and beat him up. That's just how I roll.

    I don't see the need to give the finger to a player for doing what he's supposed to do...should have given the finger to whoever didn't tackle Thomas Jones instead.
