What Texans Fans Are Saying


Recommended Posts

I love the guy predicting a 34-10 victory as they have topped 33 points exactly once since Schaub left after 2012.

And that was playing Tennessee :D

Like when the Jax board was predicting they'd put 27 on us?  They got 9, barely missed it.

Well, week two is upon us. 

This week the 0-1 Texans come to Bank of America stadium to face the 1-0 Panthers. 

The Panthers fought through adversity and a tough defense in Jacksonville to pull off a 20-9 victory. The Texans were dominated at home by the Kansas City Chiefs. Don't let the final score fool you, the score was 27-9 into the 4th quarter. Slop time points make the result seem closer than it was. 

First of all, The Houston Texans organization week 1 OFFICIAL GAMEDAY THREAD  on their own website had 920 comments and 28,000 views. The Huddle week 1 OFFICIAL GAMEDAY THREAD  had 2,059 comments and 53,750 views. Apparently the Huddle doubles them up. 

Well what are they saying over there? 

Observe...

Wait... is this serious?

Someone should inform Charles Johnson, Thomas Davis, Shaq Thomson, Josh Norman, Bene Benwikere, KK Short, Mario Addison... yada yada 

But most of the time currently within the Texans fan base is discussing a quarterback controversy. They are trying to decide which quarterback, Brian Hoyer or Ryan Mallett, is less awful.

I agree with you on everything sans Shaq Thompson.  Shaq is way to unknown and for a long period last week was so non-existent that I didn't know he was even on the field.  That said, our defense will be fine against a Fosterless Texans team ran by either a Browns castoff or a cocaine addict.  Their defense could cause problems, but with how terribly they covered Kelce last weekend, unless they get their LB issue squared away, Olsen could break out which could make this a really bad weekend for the Texans.

Here's the latest from this JamTex idiot. He thinks we only have 2 decent players- Cam on offense and Luke on D. As for Luke, I think it's most likely that he plays. 

"If Luke K is out for the Panthers defense, their defense is full of holes. 
The Panthers have no other real weapons. They are average at best without Luke.
Looks like he most likely won't be playing because of concussion protocols. 
Cam can't win it on his own, and the Texans are allot more to handle on both sides of the ball then the Jaguars."

that's because Shaq WAS non existent. He only played 17 snaps because of the personal that the Jags were using.  Shaq is a wild card, a utility knife. He's an asset.

Fwiw, only one guy said something really stupid.  Here was Texan fan response to him. 

I am always somewhat surprised by other fan's lack of general football knowledge, but then I must remember that that such ignorance is cherry-picked. 

Yeah, it is just one guy.  Here is what one of their fans said in response.

Im not sure how much you follow other teams, but the panthers have a very good defense. They may not be splashy and get a lot of airtime on espn, but look at their stats and you will see they have a defense that you need to worry about.

You said the same thing about the KC defense without knowing or checking and look what happened. Please do some research on teams before you break out the kool aid and pom poms proclaiming easy victories.

I'm pretty sure Luke will pass the concussion protocol and will play Sunday. If he does LOOK OUT! He's one of if not the best LB in the game right now, and even if he doesn't play that defense will still give you fits if you're not prepared

What are all of these "holes" their defense that you speak of?

 

Most of their fans seem fairly realistic, but I do think this will be a tough game for us.

Houston's D will be the toughest or 2nd toughest we face all year behind Seattle's. I expect Luke to pass the protocols and lead a turnover feast against a team that has 2 starting QBs, which in football math means they don't have 1, along with no Arian Foster and no Andre Johnson opposite DeAndre Hopkins. Texan fans will say WR Nate Washington had more yards (105) than Hopkins (98) so our secondary should watch out. Pffft. Josh, Bene, and Peanut ain't sweating that WR group.

Calling a defensive slugfest won by Gano. Gonna be a lot of conservative play-calling from Shula and that's the smart move. Game will hinge on which offense screws up less and takes better advantage of turnovers both defenses will give them. We can at least threaten in both running and passing. Who does Houston have at RB now? Exactly my point
