    Justin Reid is awesome. No problem there. Dude's a fuckin' baller. A rare hit.

    I thought Glover Quinn was a fine safety. & Kjax should have been moved to safety a long time ago. If Kjohn could stay healthy he probably would have.

    Andre Hal...

    Remember Bernard Pollard? Quinton Demps? I'm sure you never liked them, but there was a time when most of us saw hope in these two.

    The "standard" for judging drafts has been 3 years. If we're offering Reid an extension after year 3, we know we've got something.

    STs.... I remember desperately wanting to be in my seat for kick off when we had Jacoby, or Trindon Holliday returning kicks. Danieal Manning too. Of course we'd give up scores or a bunch of yards as well, but eh...

    Have we returned one for a score this year? Blocked a punt? A kick? We had in the past. Multiple per season.

    Don't get me wrong. I'm glad we're not giving up TDs on ST. Well, except for that trick play. I'm glad we're not giving up a bunch of yards. I'm glad we're not penalized every time we return a kick.

    Fixed... ehhhh. Sure. Some ways, yes. Some ways not so much.

    All I can add to this post is, they're better this yr than they've ever been. Maybe excluding the Mathis yr.

    Time to move on.

    Totally different situations. They worked in concert with their GM's. Unlike the dysfunction that used to be on Kirby that you so vehemently denied at the time it was happening.

    According to Football Outsiders, our offense had the 2nd best starting field position and defense had the best starting field position.

    That’s good special teams play.

    Difference is that the GM was let go in this situation instead of the HC.

    The dysfunction was the same.

    I think good times are ahead with the GM/HC on the same page. I mean they just had the 2nd most successful regular season and if they win today (Which I think they can) they will have tied the best season in franchise history and this was with many obstacles thrown in their way.

    Good times to be a Texans fan,

    Go Texans

    Regardless of what happens today, I thought before the season that Houston was a season away from truly contending. I didn't think enough was done to address the offensive line in the offseason and that Watson was going to get hit a lot because of it. I didn't have much faith of a successful season because of that and thought maybe a 7-9, 8-8 type of season. To win 11 games with this offensive line was truly unexpected for me so anything above 8 has been gravy.

    That being said, I want to be greedy. I want this season to continue. Deshaun has been everything I hoped for and more given the injury he was coming back from. I have so much hope for the future but am hoping that future starts today. Let's get the W today and end the Colts season. Then go end the New England dynasty next weekend. The future is now, let's go Texans!

    Lol now I’m disappointed. Yesterday was embarrassing and it’s become a trend for OB and his teams.

    Cant say you didn't see that coming …. or if you didn't , you cant say you weren't warned that this was the likely outcome.


    Worst part is we'll have at least another year or two of OB …. they aren't firing him a year after giving him an extension.

    Worse yet , he probably wont give up the play calling duties and we're stuck with this totally unimaginative offense , relying upon Watson to put on his Superman cape to make up for it and he'll end up broken.

    I'd be content with OB as coach if he'd bring in a top flight OC.

    Let them get the OL fixed and then we will talk. Hard to do well on offense with that OL.

    Yeah and poor everything else makes it harder/

    To win a game you have to win 2 of 3.

    Our offense got blown up, our defense got decimated. Only ST did not sh!t the bed, but they didn't do anything special either
