    I have been a "watch every game live (at home or in person), no matter what since game 1" to the point that it sometimes causes family issues.

    I think I may start DVR'ing the games and will watch them ONLY if the Texans win.

    What says you?


    Thanks.

    I really won't care what this team does until Kubiak is gone. They can't win a SB with Kubiak and I've always known that, so the Texans really haven't effected me that much emotionally for a long time. I expect this team to fail until Kubiak is gone. If he is back next year, I'll just laugh at the fans that still brainwash themselves into thinking that Kubiak will learn from his mistakes and poor philosophies that have hurt this team time and time again. I guarantee you that if Kubes is back, a lot of people will think that Kubiak has learned from his mistakes and will be a better HC for it. I hear it every off season.

    Nothing, I watch every game because it's entertaining.

    Win or lose it is what it is. I want them to win and it isn't as fun watching when they lose sure but I'll still support the team.

    Nothing will change for me either. I'll be right back in front of the TV. I might start the game cheering for them and end the game cussing at them, but either way I'll be watching. Same as I did for the frigging Oilers.

    I think the medical term for this condition is called masochist.

    I agree.




    I agree. But at this point with my kids under my roof for just 8-12 yrs....I now would rather spend time with them then watch this mess. Unless of course they are misbehaving:brando:

    I've never thought Kubiak was the guy. That's probably why this season hasn't affected me that much. Until he's gone it doesn't really matter because the team will continue to under-perform.

    Will be switching from beer to whiskey. May move on to pot or heroin depending how the team progresses ...

    At the start of next season I will be optimistic - that`s just the way I am. I will think our draft picks and perhaps 2 FA acquisitions will solve most of our problems. And I will be excited to see our draft picks playing, since the first pick will probably be a top 5 pick and the second pick will essentially be another first rounder...

    I think the only way for me to go pessimistic into next season would be, if we don`t adress our O-line. Last two seasons I was saying - this will hurt us, we desperately need a RT and probably also a RG/LG. I clearly remember last seasons draft when lots of people didn`t consider RT a big need, and I just kept on saying: "RT is our biggest need". Well, we ended up drafting 2 RTs but both of them were injured early.

    I guess at the start of next season I will be excited:

    1. New coach (and that hopefully includes a new ST coach)
    2. New QB (Either Case or a drafted one)
    3. Watching high draft picks play

    The only thing that will change with me next season is to have less expectations....I think I'd rather have a team that everyone thinks will win 8 or 9 games instead of a playoff/superbowl contender out of the gate...If they win more and overachieve great! If they win less, it's no big disappointment...

    Either way, I will be supporting them because I still remember how it was to have NO home team for several years...Having ANY team to follow, no matter how bad they are playing, is much better than having NONE!!..

    I'll be out of town for the week of Thanksgiving. Was really stressing about how I was going to find a sports bar in LA that would show the Texans game. Until Matt Schaub went in, that is. Now I don't GAF. I'll DVR it and watch it when I get back if they win. Maybe. Probably start spending my Sundays fishing after that.
