    At one point in time "I should'a, could'a, would'a" will ring deaf to even the hardest corps of Texans fans.

    Feel free to take that in as many different contexts as necessary.

    Mods, please merge any threads that deal with this issue into THIS thread.

    No need to jam up the board's first page with 14 "We can't play like this. We should have won it easily" threads.

    I think THIS thread still holds true for what happened today.

    This was a win.

    I do not agree with the 2nd half playcalling by Frank BUsh.

    Muy malo.

    Alex Smith into the game was a HUGE adjustment. The defense did not
    prepare to stop a real quarterback. They prepared to stop Frank Gore
    (which they did.) Shaun Hill is a ZERO at QB, with NO THREAT to go
    deep. Alex Smith is a much better athlete with a live arm, and a deep
    threat in Crabtree.

    I knew it would be tough with Smith in the game, and hoped the Texans would
    pull it out. And they did.

    Completely agree with this. I was worried when Alex Smith came in. Glad we came out with the win though.

    I am not happy with the way we ended the game either, but I feel like I had watched that game before and the Texans lost. We need to learn to put teams away, but we need to learn to win first. We almost let that game get away with a bone head penlaty late in the game, but the offense got the first downs that they needed to at the end of the game to make time and issue and the defense was able to come up with another turn over to end the game. Consistency has been an issue, but we are seeing glimpses of what this team CAN be.

    I agree with those that think the defensive performance in the second half was more about Alex Smith than lack of effort. I think the Niners exposed some weaknesses there that need to be addressed.
