Howard Beale Gives His Thoughts On The 2010 Houston Texans

"I still believe in Frank Bush."

Our fearless leader actually muttered those words in today's latest edition of "Monday Afternoon Kubespeak."

What more can we say about it that hasn't been said? Everyone says that they're "done." They don't care anymore. They just don't understand what this franchise is doing or thinking. They give up.

Even I have been suffering from indifference the past six weeks in regards to this team. So I called up an old friend, Howard Beale, to see if he had any advice or thoughts for me in regards to this underachieving Houston team and coaching staff. After the jump, here is what he had to say...

I don't have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It’s a depression. Everybody’s out
of work, or scared of losing their jobs...The dollar buys a nickel’s worth.

Banks are going bust. Shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild, and nobody
knows what to do...There’s no end to it.

We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat...

We sit watching our TVs while some local sportscaster tells us that today we had Hail Mary's and 72 yards in 45 seconds with no timeouts, as if that’s the way it should be...

We know things are bad.

Worse than bad.

They’re crazy.

Everything is going crazy, so we don’t go out any more...
        
We sit in the house, and the worid we live in gets smaller...

All we say is "Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my bleach and my TV and
I won’t say anything. Just leave us alone..."
              
Well, I’m not going to leave you alone.

I want you to get mad!

I don’t want you to protest or riot. I don't want you to write to your congressman. I don’t know what to do about the
losing, the mediocrity and the soft local journalism.
              
All I know is that first you’ve got to get mad!
 
You’ve gotta say "I’m a human being, goddammit! My life has value!"

So... I want you to get up now...

I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window, open it and stick your head out and yell,
"I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this any more!"

I want you to get up right now...and stick your head out and yell:

"I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this any more!"

Then we’ll figure out what to do about the defense, the coaching staff and the new tailgating policy.
      
But first get up out of your chairs, open the window, stick your head out and yell
       
"I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this any more!"  
                   
But first you’ve gotta get mad! You’ve gotta say

"I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this any more!" 


h/t to Tim for the idea.
