    Man, its getting popular to rag on the Texans for never "breaking out" and for having potential that will end in failure.

    His bottom line was just that, predicting failure. f-off.

    He didn't predict failure. He simply said "prove it" and predicted us finishing second in the division.

    In 10 years the best this team has ever done is 9-7. Why should we expect anyone to believe in the team except the local fans, who always do anyway.

    I thought it was a good review. I think he was pretty much dead on about our players.

    What we are all hoping is that the players as a whole are better than the pieces. Our O-lineman are pretty average when looked at alone. Our defense was one of the worst in the league last year and now we are completly rebuilding so it's hard for me to think someone from the outside will give them much of a chance.

    Now, if you start looking at our O-line as a group and what they do together you start seeing things a little different. Together they lead the way for the leading rusher in the league last year. Together they helped Matt Schaub and AJ have great years. Together they have learned the system and they work as one. Our defense though horrible last year has some talent and the draft seemed to get us some players we needed, add that to the fact that Wade Phillips has turned defenses around in the past and how good we have looked in the preseason so far and you can see a team that might be better than some guy from New York is predicting.

    Apparently Schaub is just sort of Ok, I guess... some of the time. Those over 9,000 yards the past 2 seasons must have thrown themselves.

    :rolleyes:

    For a guy who has gone straight up Super Saiyan over the past two seasons Schaub gets no respect.

    Schaub is a good quarterback, but i have no problem with anyone who does not believe he is a top 10 quarterback, you at least got to make the playoffs then you wil get the love and respect

    I didn't see it that way. I still think it's written in such a way that failure will be the result b/c your d will more than likely still suck.

    I think you may have read that part wrong. Here's the actual quote.

    Dorin Dickerson and a collection of undrafted youngsters are vying for the opportunity to replace David Anderson at the bottom of the depth chart.

    It's unbelievable how some of you fail at reading comprehension. You see what you want to see and hear what you want to hear.

    It's like, if a person does not live in proximity to Houston or they are pessimistic towards Houston's possible success, then you automatically dismiss whatever they say and label them an *****.

    Here's the guy's bottom line
    Truth be told, if we put down our Big-Gulp sized Koolade cups, it's where we all are. We believe in our offense with AJ-Prime, Arian, OD, and Schaub but most of us think the defense still has to prove they can hold up their end. If that's not the case, then why all the KJ falls down, Mario sucks at OLB, trade Mario, our NTs suck, threads? He ain't saying anything that we haven't been saying all through camp: the defense has to show us it's worthy to dress in the same locker room as our offense.

    C'mon Lady, chill. I don't really think that's an accuarate statement at all. We have posters from all over the country. Heck, the whole world really. There are many differing opinions which will vary from year to year, hell, practice to practice. There are times when rhetoric will fly based on these differing opinions and that's what we're here for. To discuss our Houston Texans.

    Do some folks seem to be attacking personally? Sometimes, perhaps but that's driven by being passionate about our team in the heat of battle if you will. I don't take having a differernt perspective and stating such "dissmissing whatever they say and label(ing) them an asterisk"

    What exactly was said, pray tell Lady, that pulled your panties into a knot? :blowakiss:
