    I'm a little aggrivated this evening. I had thought that the Texans had really improved and were alot different team than they'd ever been. I felt our defense was really going to be a presense on the field and our offense was going to unload on someone. At the beginning of the game our Offense comes out with guns a blazing. Our defense a little flat but hold Manning to a field goal. Thats a win "sorta". After this series Colts come out and manhandle our offense and defense. WTF happened that Texans just laid down? I'm tired of other teams in the division just overlooking the Texans as a win. I'm ready for this Team to be a team that others expect to lose to and show with the up most respect. I sincerely hope the offseason shows us something anew.

    Andrew, please remember that there are several things against the Texans right now. I won't put the details here... we all know them. I have faith in the team and the coaching staff.

    It could be worse. We could be like the Miami Dolphins. ;)

    He did? The penalty on T. Johnson didn't take away the sack. Would he have had 15? I might have missed that.

    The penalty on TJ was a pink panty wearing ***** penalty where QBs are treated like porcelain dolls.

    it's a little trying and repetitve to say, but we lost against the SB champs at their home.

    no shame in that, I just wish he had kept it closer.

    bring your yelling throat next week as we play Jax with a 8-8 record on the line!

    :d:

    Stating the obvious here... the Texans HAVE to learn to start winning against good teams (any team for that matter). Yeah, the Colts are defending Super Bowl Champs, but we keep hearing "on any given Sunday..." There's no excuse for the Texans laying down and taking it from the Colts or anyone else.

    I was very disappointed in the effort today because I know they can play better, but honestly, there is no shame in losing to the Colts on the road.

    I still love my Texans, I just want more consistant winning out of them. I understand that the injury bug has riddeled the Texans but I'd of atleast thought it would have been a closer game. Is the game worth watching just to see Mario sack Peyton?

    Personally, I'm more than a little tired of hearing that. If there's no shame in losing, to me it means you have no problem losing, hell, you probably expect to lose, and of course, they did.

    I hope every single one of those players are mad as as hell for getting their asses handed to them by this team......AGAIN!!!!!!

    No different than when Carr was the QB. The average beating the Texans have taken in Indy in the previous 5 games was 34.4 - 15.8. Today's score, 38-15. Same ol BS!!

    Oh, but they're the Super Bowl champs, so no biggie losing to them. Well, sorry, screw the Super Bowl champs and quit rolling over like an abused puppy and play like you know how to play a freaking football game when you play these buttwipes!!!!!!!!

    No shame?? Every freaking single one of them ought to be burying their heads in the sand after that lameass performance. Come to think of it, they played like they had their heads in the sand.

    I guess some of you thought that the Colts were the same caliber team as the Bucs and Broncos.

    The Texans didn't "lay down" against anyone today. They got their heads handed to them by a lot better football team.

    This "laying down" crap is just something you grab out of thin air to make yourself feel better.

    Exactly, I think thats why I'm so aggrivated. I'm tire of hearing the same ole, well that was a good team you lost to so no shame there. BS a loss is a loss and a win is a win. Untill they start adding some W's against the Colts there will alway be shame.

    I watched it three times via DVR. Johnson got tripped trying to get up and fell onto Manning. That should have been a no-call. I'll bet you money if it had been some no-name QB, it WOULD have been a no-call.

    Still mad that Carr got run outta town, huh?
    Oh yeah. Its obvious. If Carr wasn't on your mind, you'd have said, "No different than when Capers ran this team." But you picked Carr for a comparison.

    Then again, the way Sage played today, there was a resemblance to the Carr level of play. Only the sacks were missing.

    Houston, again.
    If you don't play a near perfect game against the Colts you get your head handed to you. We didn't play our best and they kicked out backsides. Pretty much all there is to it. If we played our best, MAYBE we make more of a game of it and come away with a win, but I doubt it. They are just a better team at this point. Tip your hats, and move on to the Jags.

    Sorry Dr. Phil, bad diagnosis. Don't give up the day job.

    My point was that nothing much has really changed. They've been outscored 210-94 in 6 games in Indy. Capers/Carr, Capers/Carr/Banks, Capers/Carr, Capers/Carr, Kubiak/Carr and now Kubiak/Rosenfels, no matter the names, the results are the same.

    Is that better?
