    season is pretty much done and we have nothing to look forward to.
    we dont have a young team that we can enjoy watching grow.
    we dont have a qb we can see progress with every win or loss
    were not a team on the rise, but were not a team that can win it.
    our coach is not getting fired until the end of the season, and HE WILL try to win as many games as possible to save his job. he can probably get us to 8-8 which means we wont get a game changing qb in the draft.

    we are in the worst position in the nfl right now. worse than jacksonville because they at least have the 1st pick.

    oh, and were already in cap trouble, imagine how much its gunna hurt to pay watt and kj.

    how the f did we get here?

    You live in Houston.

    I'm not sure why, but the sports gods don't look favorably on Houston.

    We were in purgatory after the Seattle game. I think we've moved on to hell. Because if listening to Gary Kubiak's post-game presser blather isn't some sort of sick, horrible punishment, I don't know what is.

    We have come full circle. Colts back at #1 prob for next 10 yrs, and the titans are now the benchmark for #2 team in division.

    What a ****ed up world we live in. :)

    We've been there since the 70's. Bad call on Renfro's TD catch, Montana's drive, Elway's drive, Bills meltdown, etc. The list could go on...

    Houston's cursed when it comes to football. We get screwed or find ways to screw it up.

    simple

    yates or keenum comes in and gives us that spark kinda like in in 2011

    and maybe we don't make the playoffs but we can start winning and maybe get to 9-7


    and u know what we can just strat playing to be a spoiler team meaning start winning and pull playoff hopeful teams down with us into our misery LOL

    I'll tell you.. we have to suck this year.

    This isn't purgatory.. it's a cleansing, a gate, a doorway, a bridge (whatever the **** you want to call it), we must pass over it and move through it to move forward.

    I rooted for us to go down in flames against the Rams and before people say I'm not a fan, because I rooted for my team to lose, or rooted for Schaub to extend his sole ownership of the NFL record of pick 6's.. I did it, because I'm a fan. A fan that realizes this current team's max potential is mediocrity. As a fan I expect more and when you're stuck in "not bad enough to make change, but not good enough to win it", that's when you're in purgatory. So I hope they fall on their face, because a change has to be made.

    The only way this team is going to rid themselves of what's truly wrong with this team (coach and QB) is for them to fall flat on their collective faces. I'll still tune in and watch every second of it.

    So you'll be happy with a 8-8 season that leads to the status quo and no change for the future? What you just described is "purgatory"

    Me hoping these problems hit them now and lead to change IS rooting for them to win.. in the future. As currently constructed, they aren't going to win crap of any importance. This team is lucky they aren't 0-6 right now and nobody doubts their talent level, so the problem that they're having goes beyond talent.. it wreaks of poor leadership and it stems from the HC and QB.
