Brent aka Texanmaniac here.
I've been doing some thinking about our Houston Texans. I've been busy lately and haven't had time to comment on much lately, except for the occasional phone posting that repeats itself like 8 times or AllenOU'd as it's refereed to, while I'm waiting on a patient. I just wanted to post my Maniacal Two Cents... and yes, I posted this on Texans Chick Steph's blog, I had the chance to meet her while tailgating before the preseason game against southern oklahoma. and she's really cool and knows good beer.
Anyway, I have two theories on our beloved Texans. The first of which, are my true feelings and Beliefs about this team and the second is my attempt at an optimist outlook.
1) The Texans are who we thought they were. I mean they will never be anything other than an average to good team, that can lay an egg, just as easily as blow someone out, and this can happen game to game, quarter to quarter, drive to drive and play to play.Gary Kubiak is not going to get fired, because he will always do just enough to keep fans interested enough to go to games and as long as people show up, Bob Mcnair will be happy and rich. This team will never go 2-14 under Kubiak. This team will never go 14-2 under Kubes either. There is a good chance that Gary Kubiak will be Jeff Fisher like in his tenure with the Texans. If Folks want to be Texans Fans, which I certainly do, I guess we just need to embrace mediocraty, I don't go to many games 3 total, and the jerseys I own I paid minimal price for after football season, so I'm not spending thousands a year to support the team. I will watch however and hope for the best and expect the worst like any good Texans Fan.
2) An optimistic thought on the Texans is this. The secondary is getting some serious OJT. Demeco Ryans, Connor Barwin, Andre Johnson, Tim Bulman, Ben Tate, will come back healthy next season. The running game will so good with Tate and Foster, that Matt Schaub may not need to attempt a pass next season. I'm pretty convinced that the loss of Connor Barwin is why the defense it so terrible.
I appreciate it if you read this far...thanks....no really:)
Just my Maniacal Thoughts:) GO TEXANS!!!
