    Last year, our "competitive" team would lose games in the 4th quarter (not scoring from the 1 twice, two missed FGs, and the all world half back pass game). Everyone, including myself got so frustrated and mad because our team couldn't close out a game.

    This year, when we lose we pretty much can see it from the beginning. Now we get mad because we aren't competitive. After Sunday's loss I actually felt relieved that we were just getting dominated because I knew then that I could start doing something else without fear that I was missing something and began my slow breathing technique from punching innocent bystanders in the face because I got POed at The Texans for losing yet another game in the second half or 4th quarter. To be honest, the 4th quarter come from behind losses sting wwwaaaaayyyyy more because they remind me of a cold winter day in the 90s.

    Can we make up our mind on how when we will get upset with them if they lose?

    Over here.
    Losing this last game by a small margin would not have upset me so much because it was non-conference and they still have a winning record. Staying above .500 and playing competitive is the key there. Don't fall below .500 and don't play like you either don't give a crap (offense) or didn't game-plan at all (Defense).

    I know it's hard to believe that I would be OK (but not just peachy-freakin-keen) with any loss, but the above is true. I swear it. :)

    I get upset when i see teams go from 4-12 to 11-5 and into the playoffs while we do just enough to get left out.

    I'll take a pretty loss over an ugly one any day. At least when you play well and you lose its because the over team deserved to win. When you just suck, well that hurts. I would rather watch an exciting game then watch a team make the Texans their ***** for 4 quarters.......

    The only game I was upset about last year, was the Jets game. Like Sunday, the offense didn't show up.

    I didn't expect our defense to shut the Jets down. I didn't expect us to goose egg the Giants. But I did expect a competitive best football team win game. We didn't get that.

    The other six games we lost, I was thoroughly entertained up to the last minute. Sure I would have liked the wins... at least one more, but it is what it is.

    Sunday..... & against the Cowboys, I was just disgusted that we got shut down on offense. That's the strength of this team, and isn't supposed to happen.

    But it kills you at the end because you realize how close you were to the playoffs and didn't get in.
    I believe the slogan for this year with some posters has been 2010 RIP Excuses. Well guess what? If we stink it up and aren't in any of these games, we will not have to ask the questions anymore. We will just know. Knowing is half the battle. No hopes up to be let down. No tickling of the nads to have them kicked in later....well....you get my drift.
