    Reading a lot of posts lately makes me question why everyone is so dissappointed in our play so far... I knew this year was going to be one more rebuilding year...and so far this year is the most progress I have ever seen...even more than our 7-9 year, and here is why:

    1. David Carr has turned into a good qb. ok ok today he didn't play well... but steve young once threw 5 picks in a game. Peyton Manning has turned in some really bad performences in the past. John Elway had bumps in the road. Why should we judge his season on one performance? Carr has played very well up until this game and has had the highest completion percentage in the NFL. He is dealing with a banged up O line who was already sub par... but regardless, he is looking a whole lot better from last year.

    2. A rushing game, and DD is on the IR. Our best back isn't even dressed out and we have put up two consecutive 100 yard games. One reason why we struggled early was becuase we had no rushing attack...well its coming around and I am excited because its coming all on the fresh legs of wali lundy and when DD joins him next year we will have a 1-2 punch that will even scare the Colts.

    3. Eric Moulds trade paid off greatly, we have the #1 receiver in the nfl on our team now...and Eric Moulds gets all the credit for this one. Bringing all the attention off Dre plus Eric Moulds is getting quite a bit of catches too.

    4. A great receiving TE with awesome hands. Owen Daniels? Where did he come from... idk but man is he a playmaker and boy did we need one.

    5. Demeco Ryans being a rookie pro bowler and could lead the league with tackles. We needed a big time linebacker...we have one and this guy is on pace to end up in canton at the way he has started.

    6. Mario Williams has more sacks then dwight freeney and simeon rice. Reggie bush...ehh not so hot...plus injured now and vince young is off to a rough start.

    7. Jerome Mathis has yet to return... he was the best returner from last year and he will provide much speed to an already potent receiving corps.


    My point is... when all this comes together next year... we will be in the playoffs and making some noise. Plus we have another draft...and Kubiak did awesome with this draft class... I mean AWESOME. Almost Every pickup has contributed.

    I said the same thing when we lost to Dall-ass....we gave them the game all nice and wrapped....It sucks to see our team defeat themselves.

    How 'bout this for a reason - I've spent thousands of dollars on season tickets these past 5 years, and I'd like to actually get some value out of what I'm spending.

    I'm kind of glad that the Texans are on a long road stretch. Maybe they'll put a good product on the field by the time they return to Reliant.

    I'm upset that we lost, I mean, you should be upset when something like that happens when you're passionate about your team. But I also do like to see progress being made and that's something that definitely is happening. Would I have preferred a win? Of course, but you have to see some good in this all too.

    Besides, I've taken a new stance on the Carr vs Rosenfels debate. *Points to avatar and signature*

    And haha, this post made me think of that commercial. Why so blue panda bear?

    I admire your optimisim, but most people on this board have been fans of this team since the beginning, and are tired of the losing. I include myself in this category.

    Look, it's not like the people here don't give a darn. We wouldn't be here if we didn't. We're just tired of the awful product on the field on almost every Sunday. We're just venting a little frustration. It's our right as paying customers and fans.

    It is your right to vent and be frustrated but honestly did you expect Kubes to just sprinkle a little pixie dust and poof every problem we have be fixed. I don't post often but I like to read them and have watched every single game from day one, you name it and I'm pretty sure I know it about the texans, that's the way a fan should be. I'm disappointed but I do see improvement and am excited about the future. We weren't going to the playoffs this year and it would be foolish of anyone to think that after a coaching change and a 2 win season, so let's let the season play out and then see what we got at the end.

    Im down because I saw a team last week that would have turned this season into something to be proud of. Yet again the team comes out flat after a big win to have one of the most disappointing performances in recent memory. The fact the it was Young and the Titans was just salt in an open wound.

    I am down not becuase we lost but the way we lost. Losing is somethign that occurs to every team during the course of the season. But to lose that way was depressing. To drive all the way down the field and then throw a silly interception. To turn the ball over 5 times in a game is ridiculous. It reminds me of an expansion team that has no clue what it is doing. This bothers me becuase we are not supposed to be that expansion team. We are supposed to be competing and not looking silly out there.

    What especially bothered me was that I saw a team hungry, fired up, and ready to destroy the Jags last week. I did not see this team this week. I did not see a QB throwing precision passes. i did not see a Dline, collapsing the QB, and I did not see a fire and intensity anywhere. The Texans looked really flat, almost as if they expected to win. When you have never had a winning season EVER, you do not get to expect to beat anyone.

    Houston, again.
    I thought they looked like they were playing tight rather than flat. When you play tight you make mistakes and we did that in spades today.

    then you expected too much because you bought season tickets for an EXPANSION FRANCHISE. you should've expected what you got.....instead you made a bad investment IMO if you were betting on a winning team.........that's what makes it so much more fun later down the road. :crying: :crying:

    p.s. I would gladly buy your season tickets, at a discounted rate of course, and take my chances every sunday if I lived close enough to make the trip.

    here is a tip...get to know some of these people before you lecture them...you don't know what some of these people are about....that much is obvious. I think Tulip passed the Bar exam so she can speak for herself...but get to know some of us as you lurk...lots of us have been around long enough to meet and stuff.

    everyone is entitled to an opinion and there is no fee for membership here. I've been a Texans fan just as long even if I haven't posted until now. I grew up in Houston and saw Warren Moon almost lead my team to a championship.

    But my apologies if I intruded on your conversation. Hopefully you can forgive that considering all of the Texans bashing going on right now.

    I don't think you understand...if you get to know the people your arguments will not look invalid.

    For instance, historically Tulip has been grounded and realistic and we all know she supports the team win or lose....and has for a while....she just wants what I want really, a credible team that competes. Winning comes in due time but if you can't even compete consistently your never going to win. The lecture came off as weak since anyone who follows this place knows what's up.

    Because we HATE losing like this...That's why I'm so down.

    It's always something with this team...One week the D will get owned, the next week the OL decides to take a week off...Then the next week Carr has butter fingers.

    It's very frustrating as a fan.
