    I was thinking this game would be the game where we could begin to turn things around. In my mind I was thinking we could beat the Cardinals, and win our next two games putting us at 5-6. We then could have lost just one game to finish 9-7 and possibly have a shot at the wild card.

    Not anymore. 2-7? We are done. Keenum is a great QB, and I think he will be here for a while, but our OLine has just been complete ass this season. On top of that, The defense can't stop anything either. They at least played better today, against Carson Palmer. How do you think they'll do against Manning, and Brady? We will be lucky to go 6-10. As far as Kubiak staying, I can't speak on that. What I do know, is all bets are off. The season is over. And I'm one of the sunshine pushers! So you know when I'm saying it, it's been dead for quite some time.

    I'll continue to watch the games, and hope that they can win, so I can get half off on my next pizza, but playoffs and Super Bowl aspirations are gone.

    Defense played well enough to win. Our offense in the 2nd half has been atrocious. I blame the coaching staff. We don't seem to adjust at all in the 2nd half. We can't seem to do anything less than a 7 step drop in this offense and get torched on the blitz.

    Well, it sure as heck is going to be an interesting offseason. Does Kubiak's health conditions actually act as job security? What about Wade? Schaub and Tate gone for good and do we draft a qb?

    Season was over at baltimore. Then came Sea and SF. Case was only hope in a failure

    Stick a fork in 2013, it's done. But I'm still going to watch just to see Case mature. He has a way to go, but one things for sure, if that boy ever gets a real NFL O-line in front of him he's gonna be a killer.

    Yeah, we're not going anywhere. What we're watching now is Case Keenum's audition for starter in 2014. That's about it.

    I'd offer up a 21 gun salute but that's Brice Mccains number. And we all hate brice...unless your rooting for the other team.

    Honestly, I think the Texans best move at this point is to move Kubiak in house, get a proven coach in and reload. Still talent there to be a good team. I think Wade's life cycle has done its usual...hot to start and then fading after 2-3 years. McNair won't fire Kubiak after his health issues. Kind of a built in excuse, thought hard to call a medical emergency an excuse. But I think its time to change directions.

    Not sure why it could. It's not like we had a winning record until he went out. We sucked all year long and are fortunate to have the two wins we have actually.

    Don't disagree, but with what you know about this franchise, do you really expect them to make a change?

    Not surprised at the outcome, but I thought we would have remained in contention a little longer than 9 games.

    Not so sure Wade needs to go. Look who he had to work with in this game and the defense didn't stink up the joint .... and add the Ed Reed bust to it, too.

    They should but they probably won't clean house. This team can't break out of the soft image. This season has got to be a result of coaching.

    No EVERYONE on this staff needs to go. Coaching candidates would fight in Thunderdome to coach here with the talent this team does have

    It's been time since after 2009 and it will be time after next yr too. Rick/Gary aren't going anywhere unless 3-13 happens and as bad as they are they will beat the Jags twice and probably the Raiders plus the Tacks. That puts Rick/Gary at 6-10, BoB keeps them and uses the health scare as his reason to keep Gary. When the truth is BoB doesn't want to pay the last yr of Gary's contract.

    It's not so bad guys. We're in position to have a top five draft pick. Probably even a top three pick the way we are going. All we have to do is reload this off-season with a good draft and I can't imagine this team not winning the AFC South in 2014. We had a bad year. It happens. I'm excited for the future.
