    Yes we lost today, yes our defense looked like the 2010 defense, yes TJ made mistakes, Yes we are down 21-0 and inside the 20 and kick to field goals, one of the field goals was on the 6-7 yard line :toropalm:. Sure we got embarrased today.

    BUT this season is not over for us, it is however over for Carolina. We clinched the AFC South, and we can still get a first round bye easily. TJ is a rookie we all know that BUT he has played far greater than a 5th round pick. He had a bad game today, but this is not all on him.

    The sky is not falling, we are not one and done.

    DONT be all up on the teams jock strap, one week thinking they are the greatest thing since electricity, and then thinking they are the scum of the earth the next.

    People ***** about losses. It's what fans do. People despair over complete team breakdowns. Today's loss wasn't a loss like this team has experienced this year. It was a complete team breakdown.

    I don't think it'll lead to a skid, though.

    It is just one game, we are still going to the playoffs.

    However, it is a big letdown after winning the division on the road and coming home just to lose bad to a 4-9 team.

    I guess more reality than anything, this team can be great but it also can show up flat.

    I think getting our asses handed to us today can be a good thing for us as it brings us down to Earth. We came out flat and sloppy, a by product of perhaps clinching the South and Wade being out. It's a wake up call to this team that we aren't invincible and have to do more than just show up and go through the motions.

    I'm not bothered, this is a good game, next time our teams gets high on hype, they can look back at this game and see how they came out flat without a care in the world until Kubiak had to have a word with his team on the sidelines.

    TJ got exposed today at HOME. I don't care about AJ being out, AF fumbling and WP recovering right now. I don't have much optimism with him behind center. I applaud you. I'm usually on your boat plugging away. However, I think I will face reality now. That reality is that TJ is not the man for the Texans to make a deep playoff run. I hope I'm wrong.

    The Texans did the classic "Can't handle their own success" thing and mailed one in. Hopefully this gets their attention and we see them play well Thursday. If not we've got real problems and we'll be one-and-done in the playoffs.

    What's amazing to me is that we can still have the top seed even with this loss (a long shot I know). Better to lose to an NFC opponent, after all.

    Making a thread about it will certainly make everyone stop talking..

    This was a pretty ugly defeat. To me, the ugliest was part was the ending.

    An "elite" team shouldn't allow a quick score, throw an INT inside the 5, then allow the opposition to run out the clock like that.

    I mean, 3rd and 8 and we let Newton pick up 9? Thats embarrassing stuff right there.

    None of this means we should be 4-10 instead of 10-4, but it certainly puts some weaknesses of ours into the forefront.

    Rookie mistakes. He's not ready. This should be no surprise to us but got caught up in the early success and hoped we'd lucked into one of those rare guys who can jump right in and start driving an NFL offense. We all forget that even Manning made mistakes his rookie year. It's not a case of not believing in him or turning on him. Yates just doesn't have the experience to be successful at this level if the rest of the team isn't doing their part. Today all kinds of crap went wrong.

    He might be the guy to take us to the next level for all we know but he ain't ready to do it yet.
