    Back for the first time! Time to start a streak and get some consistency. Y'all know how that starts? Going 1-0 this week! Every week, that's the goal. Forget about Baltimore, Seattle and San Fran; those games are over and can't be made up. In other words: To hell with 'em. Let's get back to that winning side of things, and get something going, starting at home vs. STL. LET'S MUTHA****IN' GO, TEXANS!!

    The good and the bad?

    The good: We should blow out the Rams today and win. Matt Schaub should have a big game and look good versus a weak Rams team. At 3-3 we'll head into Kansas City upbeat and with some good vibes as a team. Our season would still be riding on #8's shoulders.

    The bad: If we lose despite being heavy favorites at home, and Matt Schaub plays poorly, we may finally make a permanent change at quarterback. With a 2-4 record, I think it would be time to try and save our season with a drastic change.

    I don't agree with the people who say you are giving up on the season if you make a quarterback change. Especially if that guy has no confidence and is playing poorly.

    It will either be this after today's game... :koolaid:

    Or it will be this after today's game... :toropalm:

    I don't want us to win. I want us to trash the rams, whipe them out and put 50 points on them. I want all 3 teams to score points tonight...

    Greedy perhaps, but we all need to see this team FUNCTION :)

    Beat their ass and get some momentum. The toughest part of our schedule is over. Now go dominate.

    This is extremely difficult to say, but I think a Texans loss would be the most beneficial thing to happen for the team in the long run. Seeing the big picture is what makes me believe it is in the best interest of the team if we end up failing with Schaub. I mean, even if we won this game against a team considered mediocre (a lot of parity in the league nowadays), what does it really mean?

    It means nothing.

    On the surface I agree. One measly win isn't going to change anything over night. But it leads to the next big game which leads to the next big game and so on. A loss today would ruin any future excitement.

    A win today over the Rams would simply mean we are still alive in the playoff picture at 3-3 with a big game coming up at Kansas City. I would actually feel excited again about this team. And if we beat the Chiefs on the road, a task that will not be easy, we'll enter the bye week at 4-3 with two weeks to prepare for the big home game against the Colts. Win that game and at 5-3 we're most likely in first place in the AFC South halfway through the season.

    It's like a domino effect but in a positive way. What if I were to tell you if the Texans win today's game against the Rams it will be the start of a six-game winning streak and we'll have an 8-3 record after 11 games? I think all of us would take it. Plenty of football left to be played this season.

    This is still an 11-5 team in my eyes.

    Schaub's days in Houston are numbered. With a makeshift o-line he can't do the job so he'll be gone next season. And I thank the football gods for that.

    In any case, I still hope we win. I hope the defense totally crushes the goats and gets a shutout. No matter what happens on offense, we can at least get a FG hopefully.


    GO TEXANS!

    I don't wanna see a ****ing word from you if we rattle off 8 or 9 wins in our remaining 11 games.

    Good post. Unfortunately, there are people that want us to lose and miss playoffs just to increase chances that Schaub will no longer be our starter.

    I don't like the sentiment that losing is good. I don't care for the incessant sunshine pumping, either. But, I'm not asking the Sunshine Club to quit posting if the Texans continue to struggle. If you don't like what you're reading, ignore it.

    This is a big game - at least record-wise. Before we started stinking up the joint, I was actually concerned about it. However, since it is basically our season that is on the line, I think we absolutely roll today. 31-13 Texans.

    No more VIP Suite so back to the recliner
    I could be completely wrong, I've been know to be so in the past but I have the feeling that we are seeing the last days of Matt Schaub the starter in Houston. After McNair and Rick Smith's 'on the record' comments regarding #8 during the off season and the way his contract is structured I see the fork in the road coming after this season.
