    Look, I watched the same game you all did and I also felt disappointed that we didn't leave NOLA with a W, but did you all actually think that we would go undefeated this year? Fact: good teams lose football games too. This doesn't mean that our season is in the toilet right now. It just means that we have issues on both sides of the ball that we need to fix.......just the same way that the other 31 teams have shit to fix. I honestly feel that all of our issues are correctable and I have confidence that they'll get them ironed out this week. I just hate to see the amount of knee-jerk reactions that are going on about 1 loss. Let me say that again, 1 loss. Keep it in perspective, it's a 16 game marathon, not a 3 game sprint.

    We've been saying for a while now, if we can go 2-2 in the first 4 games, we should be in good shape

    I think few people would have marked us down for a W when we got the schedule. We played a good team in their house and lost. I'm ok with that. I'm hoping that our staff can actually fix the problems that we see from the first 3 weeks.

    I certainly didn't have the Texans winning this game. In fact I said they would put up only 14 points the whole game. The Texans had an opportunity today to go 3-0 but due to Kubiak's asinine decisions in the red zone we stand at 2-1. That's solid and I just have a feeling that next week at home we'll beat up on the Steelers. The season is not over, but a great opportunity was missed today. There are still lot's of question marks around this team, specially on defense but a great offense like the Saints will do that to you. We're not a legitimate Super Bowl contender yet and to become one we have to be able to close out games and that's part of the learning process for this team. Hopefully by the end of the year we'll become a team like the Saints and Packers who know what it takes to be great.

    I wanted this game so badly (I work with a Saints fan). I'll hear it at work tomorrow, but then again, what I wanted from this 4 game stretch was to see this team improve & learn how to win as the year goes on. The Texans never gave up fighting on the road against a quality opponent. I'll take this loss in exchange for wins as the year goes on.

    This isn't the point. The point is 26 - 17 in the 4th, and we lost.

    Had we scored TD's on half those FG's it still would have been a big task to keep that offense down for an entire game. Saints are that good.

    yeah i have to go with this i think that was by far our toughest game of the season no other teams we play have that good of an offense, and their defense isnt exactly scrubs.

    I wasn't expecting 16-0 but I also wasn't expecting to give up 40 points to a pass offense without their #1.

    #1 WR ? well they arent the colts, they have plenty of weapons. So 1 guy goes down and they fill their spot, hell we are without our #1 RB.

    Well, before the season I posted 15-1 with loss to Steelers. We should have had this game. 9 point lead in 4th? We should have been able to hold that lead with runs and passes to TEs. We could have worked the middle as well as the Saints did.

    We lost. What's YOUR point?

    Who gives a f--k who we lost against. We lost.

    No, I'm not expecting to win every single game. But I will not apologize for being upset at a loss.

    Nope, didn't expect to go 16-0. However, I wanted the Texans to make a statement. They almost did. They were right there.

    No, you should f--king care who they lost against because the Texans have yet to beat a playoff caliber team. These are the teams you measure up against. The Saints, Steelers, Colts (with Manning), Ravens, Atlanta, these are the teams you need to beat and when you cannot defeat these caliber of teams, you start spinning your wheels in mediocrity...

    I don't want the Texans to "just be happy they are in the playoffs" I want them to go in expecting to beat other playoff teams, however their history with these teams in the regular season does not shine a light of hope for me if/when the Texans get tot he playoffs....
