    well hopefully this fires them up.

    "speak softly and carry a big stick" comes to mind

    I want to believe they're not soft, but I still can't shake this out of my mind...

    Even their answers sound "soft". Come on guys. Get pissed off! Show some freakin emotion! I understand its Andre so my beef isn't with him. My beef is with the rest of the team that didn't say anything. Hopefully, this means they will simply let their play on the field do the talking. I can't say I'm hopeful.

    My thoughts exactly! I'm surprised Kubiak didn't drop a "it's on me" comment in there.

    I'd love to have been a fly on the wall when this play came up during the film session.

    Part of being soft is allowing someone to manipulate your emotions. If your personally is not outwardly emotional and someone can take you out of that they have won.

    I haven't seen anyone "posterized" that bad in a long time

    and maybe I just haven't looked or noticed.

    wow

    You left off the rest of the headline:

    Texans take exception to "soft" talk; hug and sing Kumbaya.

    Whats so scary about that play is the Jenkins loses NO balance from throwing Myers around... He just keeps his heading and speed.

    I saw Jake Long get pancaked by John Abraham on Sunday, looked pretty awful but he was at least using both arms.

    That's just ... well I don't know how to express what that is. But if you had to characterize our game with one play, it would be that one.

    The Texans will always be considered a soft team until they get mad enough to step up and prove otherwise. Come on Texans step up and prove us all wrong.

    As for Chris Myers, you now see why we only spent a 6th round pick on him.

    Just win, Baby.


    ....statement issued by the resident Head Case in the NFL.

    As to the Texans winning games, I want it so, but I'll believe it when I see it.

    There's no comparison to the way the Texans and Titans lost their respective season openers. Tennessee played balls-out against a tough opponent and took them to overtime. Houston played the Jets who were also quite tough and the Texans played soft because they are soft.

    They'll be soft until they prove otherwise.

    yep.. reminds me of the movie "Mr Baseball" and they keep telling Jack he has a hole in his swing ... and dennis haysbert character tells him "all over Japan ,pitchers are practicing " shitoh " oh the dreaded "shitoh"

    Texans need to come out Sunday and play whatever smash mouth they can (within their limits) and knock this label off of them .. then do it again the next week.. because teams are looking at this and licking their chops because once the Texans get knocked in the mouth , they seem to go into a shell .

    Last part I totally agree with. Overall the team plays soft, and it's a label they've earned. I wish I could see someone on the team upset about being called soft that other then these equally soft responses.

    I haven't heard anything from practices this week, but it wouldn't surprise me after that ass kicking to have closed practices for a while.

    If they want to knock the label, go out and bust the Titans in the mouth right from the kick off and don't stop until the clock hits zero in the 4th. If the Texans don't come out swinging these the rest of the season is going to be unbearably long for the team and fans.
