    A couple that was interesting, you can check out all of them at ht.com

    (on if he has decided to stick with QB Matt Schaub as the starter)


    on if they have the technology to rewind and watch replays before challenging a play)


    (on how tough it is to trust a player when they say to challenge a play)

    (on why you drop DE Mario Williams into coverage)
    (on the red zone problems)


    (on what he’s not happy about with the red zone offense after looking at film)

    (on what he can tell fans who are down about the losses)


    I would also like to give Dreesen props on his block on Vanden Bosch early in the game, he rang his bell, too bad we needed more of it.


    I still love my Texans!

    Sounds exactly what I thought he was going to say, but then again what else more do we expect?

    "...we're still evaluating..." = "I won't admit Matt Schaub can't hack it."

    Kubiak has a hard head. Too many layers for the truth to penetrate quickly enough.

    "Yeah, nothing's changed..." LOL. You can say THAT again.

    Sheesh. Why didn't you apply for the A&M job, Gary?

    We expect to be one or two plays away from being right back in the game...instead of dominating our opponent.

    We expect to continue to "evaluate," instead of ACTING ON A HUNCH.

    I didn't think Gary Kubiak's era as Texans HC was going to end up being one big coach-speak session after another. Heck, Gary, just get a cardboard cutout and tape a recorded message to play during the pressers.

    "The field was good."

    "We battled hard."

    "Of course we're disappointed about the loss."

    "We just got to keep evaluating..."

    What do you want him to say?

    Something about crowning their backsides and throwing the game away?

    I expect him to say I'm going to start Sage this week.

    I'm sick of it all I'm selling my tickets for the Colts game and as long as Matt is our starting qb or he becomes a NFL qb. I was going to put them up for sale yesterday, but I decided to wait the 24 hours to cool off. No changes by the team and no changes on selling my tickets.

    GP just wants to see a little conviction mixed in with optimism.

    Not "I think we can..."

    But "We damn sure will."

    I watched the Broncos play yesterday and wished that we had that FO and staff. The results may not be there for us just yet, but the execution does not look/feel remotely close to Shanahan. We got the Benny Hill Show on offense and Cheez Wiz on defense.

    Sometimes a quick break is the best thing for a player. We do it for other positions, and we have one of the best back up QBs in the game. If Schaub gets rattled early take him out and get him settled down, give him new perspective, keep your back up fresh, have a conversation about tactics rather than why did you do that or what happened, blah blah blah.

    Mario dropping back into coverage is only a good thing for the opponent. I just remember thinking that our staff is reaching right now by trying to be cute on both sides of the ball. This is the NFL and anything can happen, but I would not be surprised if the locker room is close to being lost if changes are not made.

    This is from the team quotes, not on the website (don't have a link):

    Chester Pitts:
    I wonder what Pitts would say if he intended to be rude.

    I wouldn't beg for a RB to get fired or benched for a few fumbles.

    I wouldn't beg for an OL to get fired or benched for a few missed blocks.

    Pitts is off the mark with those comments, IMO. I think the OL has played well enough to afford a QB some time to throw the ball, and it started back in 2007. I understand he's trying to run interference for Matt Schaub, and that's nice and all, but I am not buying it. Not even for $1.

    But I WILL beg for a QB change, even for a game, just to see if the change makes the team play better.

    Why is this so damn hard to understand? I mean, it's like the mere thought of telling a grown man (Schaub) that he needs a breather is soooo out of line. People need to swallow some freaking pride for the POSSIBLE betterment of the t-e-a-m.

    This shows how truly screwed up this team has become over the years.

    Simply and utterly amazing.

    LOL. Gee whiz... :heart:

    Exactly what I am trying to say. Thank you for summing it up.

    Capers had the word "execute," and Kubiak's is "evaluate."

    So much evaluation, so little REAL progress from it. :thinking:

    I like what Pitts said. I also believe its the truth, but I'm sure alot of people around here will take offense because of his comment on TV-guys. For one I appreciate Pitts comments much more than Kubiaks, from Kubiak (all HCs in general) I expect alot of blah blah execute-talk, but usually the players talk about the stuff they themselves see. For me that brings a more nuanced picture of what is going on.

    Pitts is right, its all about perception. If you expect Kubiak to be vague and non-concrete, well then chances are that thats exactly what you'll pick up :)

    But hey, thats just me, a #69 fan :)

    This is funny. The team has been brainwashed, or they all just have each others back when it comes to stuff like this.

    Matt Schaub through 2 games is 42/70 for 390 yards, 1TD, 5 INTS, 8 sacks, 3 fumbles and 1 rushing TD.

    So what Pitts meant to say is that if a running back fumbles twice, or a QB throws 5 interceptions, fumbles 3 times and is sacked 8 times the fans need to shut up and let football people make football decisions.

    Thanks Chester.

    Bottom line is yes, we have played 2 tough defenses, but that doesn't mean our team should look incompetent. Ineffective. I assume that the Texans are going to stick with Schaub to see what he can do against the Jags. And if he falters, then what? "Well we went against 3 top defenses"

    You cant keep making excuses for players. We are an NFL football team too. Why cant we be hearing from our opponents how their team did so bad, and "well, the Texans are a top offense, or top defense." It always seems to be the other way arround.

    Over here.
    I expect him to say, "Well, first off, Richard Smith sux. Then, there's the non-audible into a run play up the middle right into a 9 man front. Sometimes, I have to play Faggins, and we all know that ain't gonna work. Slaton is our only RB, like you didn't know that. Weaver is a stand up and stay put machine. Greenwood does make a lot of tackles on those 12 yard runs against us, though. I like to go for it on 4th and too freaking long....A LOT. That kind of makes me look stupid, but whatever. Anyway, then there's the biggest problem right now, which is that we have at least one inside linemen on both sides of the ball who is playing at a position they are too small for, or at least too weak. But, hey, at least our QB isn't pouting on the sidelines....well, not yet anyway. Thank you for your support."

    Actually, the honeymoon is definitely over between Kubiak and Schaub. Did you see the shot of them jawing at each other?

    I remember the Carolina game, when Schaub threw to AJ in the end zone an he was triple covered...Schaub ran to the sideline and told Kubiak "I won't do that again..." I laughed because it's like, 'What? Yes you will. You're acting like you can just say 'I won't do it again' and it'll just come true."

    The San Diego game, for me, was the sign that Matt Schaub is not going to make it as a starter in this league. He had two back-to-back possessions of throwin ginto questionable coverage, with the same result. And then he got creamed from the blinside on the second interception because he forgot that he's not jsut watching the game like the fans are in the stands...he's a live body, and the defender nailed him for not paying attention.

    Kubiak is losing it. But at least he seems to have MAYBE found a decent RB, for a change. That's a positive for him right now.

    EDIT: Kubiak is losing it, IF he thinks we buy his pressers and his coach-speak. This isn't Pop Warner anymore, the parents don't care about "trying hard" or "evaluating to see what we can do better" etc.

    I think we need to at least have a home game under our belt and to have a normal week of practice before calling for Kubiak to be fired or a QB change. The start of the schedule was tough to begin with and our first home game was pushed back because of Hurricane Ike. We should have played our first game at home already and sometimes that helps you get jump started when you get some good ol' home cooking. We were dealt a bad hand so Kubiak and Co. are trying not to fold only 2 games into the season.

    1. Don't be friggin' "disappointed" like Ohio State lately. Be pissed. Be angry. Be fired up! Kubes and Jim Tressel both are "players coaches," recruit guys who "do the right thing," etc. Down side? After so long, the players seem to absorb the coaches attitude. Someone step up and get angry and a little dirty.

    2. If the Texans didn't have replay access in TN then something is really wrong with the NFL rules or in TN and I would be making a huge stink.

    So GP, when Sage throws a few interceptions and they lose are you then going to say, "well it is the same as Schaub." Your obsession has been going a long time now. I'm not happy with Schaub at this time. But I'm also not happy with 99% of the other guys who aren't doing their job. I give him another start and see if the team and he as a whole improve. I'd throw out stats from last year but you ignored them then too.

    I'm just over the same stuff and the same play and the same reactions.
