    Schaub carried the offence and did it very well indeed.

    Kevin Walter, Owen Daniels and Steve Slaton also played very well

    The o-line pass blocked well

    We were great on 3rd downs

    The defence stopped a dangerous rushing attack for the second straight week.

    Mario brought alot of pressure

    JJ had another decent return

    The team took a big step forward today imo

    The only positive I see is that the game is over. Every year we go through the same thing. We crap the bed to start the season. Then we win a couple games to end the year and all the kool-aid drinkers say we are improving. This just in - we stink.

    Couldn't think of any more...seriously though...

    looking at the schedule we have a chance to win the next 3 games....

    Indy/Miami/Detroit...we have to beat the Colts though, the whole season is this one game right here. We lose forget about it...we win we could beat the Lions and Miami i'm confident about that and we have homefield against a Minny team that hasn't shown much...

    Also these first 3 games could have made our team mentally tough, i'd like to think that.

    I mean the positives is that our offense looked good...but idk how consistent that can be. Colts is a must win though to have any hope for the season.

    We gotta fix that secondary ASAP, dont know if it is the players or the scheme... but man we wont be able to win a whole lot of games in this manner.

    That said the JAX pulled the exact same trick on the Colts last week, at least we were able to get it into OT.

    Team as a whole gets a pass, but... man... that secondary... It'll keep me up at night, and not in a good way.

    Positive: I'm still a Texans fan, even though our Defense SUCKS.

    there are none, when you run a thread like this it means you lost and are looking for a silver lining.

    Well....I did save a bunch of money on my car insurance. 'Course, that's cuz my car is a piece of crap, but whatever.


    It's like I said. We will probably get our first win of the year against the Colts, funny as that sounds.

    Good post. We had many positives today. This loss today rules out a winning season for me, but 8-8 is still pretty achievable. We need to start winning this kind of football game though.

    The only positive that I can see is that we looked like the team of last year. A team that can make a close game (which can go either way) but never dominate any aspect of the game. We GOT BACK to being an AVERAGE team. Nothing more. Nothing less. I KNEW that we could get a FG to tie but when we lost the toss I KNEW the game was over. That is the level of our team. A good team finds ways to win. We find ways to play the what if game.

    P.S. What if Kubiak would have called a timeout when it was obvious that we had the wrong personnel in the game? (jax 1st TD)

    The chances of Richard Smith getting fired increase with every game we play.

    That's the biggest positive for me.
