    If Miami & New England put their best on the field. If they are both trying to win a spot in the post season... & we beat them, playing a mistake free, clean football game...

    would you change your mind?

    Whats the point? Kubes had his chance and even if he decides to clean up the mess, it's too late now.

    I'd be mad that we haven't exerted the same effort and concentration throughout the season

    Doubtful. What pressure is there? There is none. So if they do play 60 minutes? Congrats. Why couldnt they do it for even half the season?

    I'll be glad if we win because I'm always glad when we win.

    Having said that, I was skeptical before the season started.

    Nothing has happened this season to change that.

    If we beat Miami and New England, it still won't matter to me because the must-win stretch is over.

    Yep

    What happens the rest of the year really doesn't matter.

    New England is 1-5 on the road

    Miami is 2-4 on the road

    Beating either of those teams in Reliant would be no massive achievement by any stretch

    change our minds about what? 8 years of no playoffs, working on 9. Beating those two teams with nothing on the line, means that nothing was on the line...so I'm back to not understanding the question.

    No, it really wouldn't. Every year in the last month or so of the season a few teams going nowhere upset other teams trying to get into the playoffs. It doesn't happen because the teams playing out the string are better, it happens because they've got nothing to lose.

    It doesn't matter though. Andre Johnson wants Kubiak back so that's pretty much the end of that. I believe they could finish 5-11 and McNair would defer to Andre Johnson and tell us all that the injuries killed our season. We won't see the end of this until the end of next year.

    Unless Vince Wilfork doesn't play, we're not going to beat New England.

    (Originally I wrote 'unless Vince Wilfork dies in a fire', but that seemed a bit over the top.)

    Same here. I'd be glad they won, but more angry that they didn't do that in the other losses.

    Actually, it would make me angrier.

    We just finished what was probably the most important stretch in this teams history, and we blew it. Where was all that supposed fire then?

    Nope. Too late.

    Save 'dies in a fire' for Titans players

    Plus Wilfork is a potential free agent and one I wouldn't mind the Texans pursuing

    Right on, Hervoyel. If Kubiak is back, the fans at Reliant won't wait
    four quarters to boo this team off the field for sloppy play. Nothing
    made me prouder of Houston, than the fans staying the ENTIRE GAME
    against the Jets, just to boo the shit out of them when the clock struck

    It is much to late to have a great finish. Depending on how well we play against Seattle and St.Louis will determine Kubes career in Houston. I would much rather sign some big name players and have Kubes in here for another year to see what happens. O.J. Atogwe and Vince Wilfork would be something and than drafting Joe Haden. Just thinking if we did that this off-season the team would change drastically. :texflag:

    What if we lose to Seattle and St. Louis?

    What is the air velocity of an unladen swallow?

    Why was Kennedy killed? Who benefited? Who has the power to cover it up? Who?

    That kind of bothered me. I'm hard on the team, but it's always been hard for me to boo them when I'm at the games. I yell, scream, cuss, beat the seat in front of me, but booing the home team seems a bit harsh.

    Having said that, if Kubes returns next year I'ma be on his ass like white on rice.
