    I know it's a hard time for us fans... but now is when it is most important to show our faith in this team. I admitt that my trust in our coaches and some players waivered for the first time last week but if we have ANY shot at being a successfull team in the next year or so this system HAS to work. I am going to be my typical :homer: self and say this. I BELIEVE in Capers system. I BELIEVE in Casserly's players. I BELIEVE in our Houston Texans. I want to be fielding a winning team as much as anyone and for this to happen the guys we have running the show have got to do what we brought them in here to do.

    I BELIEVE in Barney. I BELIEVE in Superman. He will save me. :)

    Now, I'm gonna go out and do my rain-dance.

    Seriously, I don't think we have much chance Sunday. Maybe we'll play a lot better, and that's what I'm hoping for, but we'll still lose. I'm not waisting my emotions on it. It's just not worth it to me. Maybe against Cincinatti, but not Pittsburgh and I'm just really hoping that they show that they've fixed some of the problems they had last Sunday. IMHO, the Steelers SHOULD have won the Super Bowl last year. Roethlisburgh, choked in the play-offs (twice). He was a rookie and he'll get over it, probably all over Philip Buchannon. :rolleyes:

    The Texans are in for a rocky start, but it's not the end of the world. We'll probably go 0-6 before the offense really gets straightened out. we'll come on stronger in the second half of the season. we'll end the season about 6-10. Stil a losing record, but they'll win games.

    The problems the Texans are facing all seem to be on the mental side. Things like focus, disipline, motivation, etc. It's obvious we've got a lot of talent on both sides of the ball.

    The results of this season should cause some needed shake ups in the front office.

    Despite their problems, I think the Texans as a whole are going to play hard all year. At least they'll be fun to watch at times.

    I don't think we'll go 0-6. We'll still beat Tennessee. Come on now. :)

    I saw all the problems that everyone else saw. But if I project the rest of the season based on last weeks performance I'd cry myself to sleep every night of the week. We're up against a very solid team this week and that is what needs to be focused on. WE CAN BEAT THESE GUYS.

    I agree with HARDKNOCKTEXAN that we can beat these guys. When people ask me that do you really expect to win I always say yes because i really do expect the Texans to win every week. I said that when we played our first game againt the cowboys and I said it last week when we played the Bills and i will say it this week and next month and for years to come. Just belive in our guys. I know it tough but just believe.

    I went to 3 games: Texans@Jets, Colts@Texans, and Texans@Bills(This past Sunday) we lost all 3 of those games but I still belive.
    I have watched every single game since day 1 and I belive.

    So stop doing this :brickwall
    And start doing this :fans:

    Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?

    Reasons why we can win:
    1st Home game
    The Bills tape will show correctable errors
    Sense of urgency
    Any given Sunday in the NFL
    Karma, all the love Houston has given Katrina victims has got to mount to some form of currency.

    What needs to happen:
    Find a leader
    Challenge Mursphy and Davis to block and protect
    Unleash Mathis
    and most important get your best player more touches - AJ needs to touch the ball at least 10 times.

    Texans 24-17 :texflag:

    You know, I expect people to jump all over me for saying this stuff, but for as strangely and as bad as the Texans played on Sunday, maybe 3 or 4 plays going a different way mighta led to a Texans win.

    Peek catches the ball.

    Gaffney turns around.

    Dominick keeps a handle on it.

    Etc.

    There were plenty of dumb things that went on in that game, but we weren't completely out of it.

    Our defense did a remarkable job keeping them from scoring TDs despite our offense not really giving them a breather. Giving up 5 turnovers, they should have KILLED us.

    The offense is definitely out of sorts, but I remember all the stuff from last year after the San Diego loss--talk show/message board folk were panicking, saying how terrible the team was to lose to a team like the Chargers (before folks knew how much they improved). And mostly that game was about turnovers too.

    And then after the team was playing better, people started mouthing off about playoffs

    I dunno. I just think it is best not to be too high or too low after a win or a loss and not to panic. The best organizations are the ones that don't freak out and do stupid stuff just to say they are doing stuff.

    The one I keep thinking about is from Chasing Amy. Here's my version.

    Ok, let's take a little test. It's a mental excercise, kind of like an SAT question.

    Here we have a four way intersection and right in the middle of it sits a fresh $100 bill. Now at the end of each street are the following people all walking towards that hundred dollar bill.

    1. Dom Capers with his brand new Super Bowl Trophy

    2. Super Bowl MVP David Carr

    3. Santa Clause

    4. Earl Campbell who can barely walk with his cane.

    Now, which of the above persons will reach the hundred dollar bill first?

    Answer: Earl Campbell no matter how long it takes him to get there.

    Do you know why?

    BECAUSE THE REST OF THEM ARE FIGMENTS OF YOUR FREAKIN IMAGINATION!

    Half Chick? Half Homer? Call her what you will, but I agree 100%. The age of the hybrid is upon us. :texflag:

    In order for the Texans to win, AJ is going to have to be a decoy for at least a half of every game, Ive never seen one player lead a team to the playoffs or the superbowl. T.O. tried it, and it failed!!!

    Baby steps, AJ can help get us to 8-8 if we get him touches.

    I remember the '92 Oilers.... I was a kid then, but my Dad and I had season tickets and witnessed the 0 and 4 start... and this was suposed to be our best team in years. Well.. after those first 4 losses the city was calling for a total change in coaching and players... and then, 12 weeks later, and 12 wins in a row, the Oilers made the playoffs. We WILL turn things around sooner than latter.

    I'm pretty sure the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor at 7:53 am on December 7, 1941.

    Good point, or maybe those were messershmitz with Japanese sun spots on them, lol. Tricky Germans. Those '92 Oilers are sounding really good right now. Hey, maybe we could get them all out of retirement! :ok:

    I am going to excuse you because you were a kid then and I was just thinking the same thing you were. However, it was a 1-4 start and it was 11 wins in a row. The only thing that ticked me off about that season was Joe Montana played us and once again had a come from behind victory to take us out of in the first round. Never the less, I'd take that this season

    It was also the '93 Oilers I was thinking about. The '92 team was great but also led us to the most humiliating comeback in NFL history. I was grounded for a month after that came. I think my mom heard words that she didnt even know existed come from my mouth after that playoff loss to Buffalo.
