    I am a fan. And this is a warning for anyone thinking of becoming one themselves.

    Stay away.

    The Texans are a team full of talent. We have skills players who are excellent on both sides of the ball. Despite this, we are conditioned losers.

    1. We have been blown out this year. See New York Giants.
    2. We've lost to the worst team in football. See the Cowboys beatdown.
    3. We've lost in primetime. See the Colts.
    4. We've blown leads and lost at the end of the 4th. See the Chargers.
    5. We've lost due to terrible calls. Again, see Chargers.


    And today, we added a new twist. We've lost due to divine intervention.

    During a week in which a group of Texans fans literally started a thread advocating that we conduct a mass prayer for the Texans, we get a comeback teaser followed by the most incredible act of divine intervention Ive ever seen in a football game.

    Our cornerback jumps and literally knocks the ball directly into a receivers hands? That will be one for the history books.

    We are a poorly coached, low effort, ref biased, and now snakebitten cursed team.

    Just thought any prospective fans should be aware of that.


    (Yes, I am highly frustrated after that game, and yes this is supposed to be funny and not serious)

    I don't feel any anger or frustration at all. I think I'm just numb to it now.

    You really can't even be angry after losing like that.

    I mean, really? A knockdown directly to the defender?

    Thats more amazing than the catch they literally call "The Catch"

    This is one of those once in a lifetime plays that will be remembered forever.

    And we happened to be on the wrong end of it. As usual.

    We're snakebit

    They're pretty much the only reason to stay interested in this team, actually. At least the board is fun.

    Unless of course you're talking about your own posts?

    I officially gave up on the season after the NYG game. So yeah, I just laughed today. Still a fan, but I don't believe.

    I don't get angry anymore. I have grown to expect the worst when the Texans are playing.

    Yeah, it's our fault, the fans who have sold out every game in their history dispite this team being a decade league wide laughing stock.

    You mean MULTIPLE threads with MULTIPLE people posting the SAME SHIT every single time isn't ****ing annoying? If this board is any indication of our fan base as a whole, then its a damn shame, because we're a bunch of petulant children.

    At least you're intelligent. Some of us refuse to learn.

    No team can overcome poor coaching, management, referees, and now the Almighty too I suppose.

    Maybe 2 or 3 of those, but all? Pshhh, impossible.

    Just out curiosity, what were you expecting coming to a board after what was literally a miracle play that results in a last second loss that effectively ends our season?

    Maybe there'll be a shake up in the coaching staff now because of this. To little to late I know, this season is over, but you have to start sometime. And there are a few good head coaching candidates out there right now.

    Fans are frustrated right now. Yes, all the new threads are annoying, but I understand the frustration that clouds judgement. I however don't need to make new threads b/c other numb, broken-hearted fans have made them for me.:wadepalm:

    I agree. This was the first game this season that I've been able to enjoy. I watched it with no emotion and I laughed at that miracle last minute touchdown by Jacksonville.

    I think the team not posting the same results on the field every single game might change that.

    You're acting as if its just today. I'd like to see the board recognize who to blame when its appropriate. I'd like to see the board diversify their complaints and criticisms of the team. I'd like to see all the nonsense contained to one thread, rather than spread out over 17 different threads, considering they all say the same crap.
