    Kubiak can't call plays, manage a game or coordinate his socks.
    Schaub is a noodle armed non-leader, non-clutch QB.
    AJ is washed up.
    Foster's vegan butt goes down if someone imitates the Watt finger waggle at him.
    The team has no heart and is lazy.




    Oh and we are 10-1.




    Gottverdammt b!tching is getting a little ridiculous. Everything isn't perfect, it never is, but damn get some perspective.

    We're lucky we play a weak schedule or we'd be looking at a top 10 pick.
    This team can't win every game by 30 so it will be a short playoff run.

    The Texans play their butt off and never give up.

    And the kicker with the game on the line scares the crap out of me.

    I am stunned at the negativity I have seen here.

    You are ****ing 10-1. The last several games with no Cushing either. 5-0 on the road. Demolished Baltimore.

    If this team has that much to still prove to you, then stop watching, because how you can't find joy in how special your team is and how frigging hard it is to go 10-1, then NOTHING is good enough for you.

    As William Shatner said it on SNL to Trek fans...get a life will you people?

    I think some folks are just so used to bitching about how bad the Texans are, they can't stop. Years of disappointments as Oiler and Texans fans can do that I suppose.

    But damn. We got the best record in football right now. The team is banged up and missing players and still wins.

    It's ****ing Thanksgiving. The Texans won and the Cowgirls lost. How the hell is there anything negative about that?

    If we're spread out on D we got problems. Our O is average. That's the story. Watt is a beast

    I learned that Ball is a BEAST. If we had 11 Balls we'd be a more rounded team of beasts.

    10-1 means nothing when giants were 9-7 and on life support heading into a division title then ran through everyone.

    Matt Schaub said it best in his presser. This team is mentally tough. We've got issues. Anyone who thinks differently is fooling themselves.

    We are 10-1, but the AFC Championship game is still a long, long ways off. There's no guarantee we'll get there & if we have to play Denver in the divisional round, that's going to be a helluva game that we might not win.

    Their defense is gelling & their offense is exploding, while we appear to be waning.

    But that's six weeks from now & nobody knows how things are going to shake out by then.

    I think that the people who are bychin about the Texans are drunk right now. Or the Turkey is affecting their thoughts. Or this is their first experience in following and NFL football team. The Oilers never put together a season like the Texans are having, never.

    This is the type of season we may never ever see again. Some people are not comprehending how special this.

    Our team has gone from one side of the spectrum to the other side and has proven time and again that this is a Superbowl caliber championship team.

    I said this several weeks ago before Cushing got hurt. Its all about staying healthy. Keep Schaub, AJ, the main cogs of your oline, Foster and Watt healthy for the playoffs, and I'm hardpressed to name a team in the NFL that will be able to beat you in the post-season, especially in your house.

    Everyone points to the Giants last year as the ultimate example, same with the Packers the previous year. But before then, teams with homefield and bye weeks won more championships than teams that didn't.

    But if you're not happy right now, that's your perogative. As a rival fan I'd kill to be in your shoes right now.

    Exactly.. Apparently being 10-1 is a curse.

    :thinking: I have no idea what this dolt is trying to suggest.

    I have learned that for many on this board, if you aren't 100% perfect, then you're 100% crap and the sky is falling.

    I imagine this is the way a lot of fanbases react.

    We're finding ways to win despite some shortcomings and stepping up mentally when its necessary. To me, that's the sign of a good team moving into greatness. Adversity can be overcome, and the players believe it. They would easily have folded during these past two games, and they didn't. That's big to me. I like how they're gelling mentally even as they're struggling a bit during games.

    As if the Giants defense didn't get exposed somewhere during that 9-7 season.

    They got healthy at the right time.
