What happened to all the "Winning the Superbowl" talk

I love supporting all our local teams, but it's amazing how everything in the NFL is so overhyped.
I support the Texans 100% and don't give a da... about the other teams.
But everytime people come to me telling me "We are going to the Super Bowl"
first thing I tell them is "Well, first we need to make it to the Playoffs"

Now we are going into the Playoff after losing 3 out of the last 4 games and have scored 1 TD in the last 2 games.
I support the Texans 100%, but people (specially TV and radio) need to stop overhyping them so much and be more realistic.

First the Texans could not get any hype on how good they were doing and now it too much. Just can't make anyone happy. Hopefully they will get their stuff together for the playoffs.

Nothing wrong with believing in the home team. Can't win them all. Doesn't mean their fans have to give up on them. I'm not a Texans fan but I like how much support their fans give them.

That might be part of the problem, people asking for "Respect from other cities/teams"
I don't give a ..... about that, we'll teach them to respect us in the field.
After we beat them, they can go on and say whatever they want to say.

I don't want my team (Texans in this case) to be popular, likable, etc, etc.
I want my team to win games.

Schaub the Elite? hahahahahahahahahahahahaha

QBs I would take over Schaub the "Elite": Peyton, Eli, Brady, RGIII, Russell Wilson, Cutler, Stafford, Romo, Kapernick, Rivers, Brees, Matt Ryan, Luck, Big Ben, Flacco, Dalton, Newton, and Freeman.

Schaub is below those guys.

Texans need a new QB next season. I believed in Schaub until I saw Yates do things he could not do last season (evade tacklers, run for first downs, better arm....Yates made plays). This season, I believed in Schaub until I saw his scared face against the Patriots on MNF. Ever since then, this team and him have left such a bad taste in my mouth. He is not going to lead us anywhere except for one and done in the playoffs. In hindsight, maybe Wilson should have been picked up in the third instead of Posey or something. Maybe Posey drops, to the next third round pick. I don't know, but the Texans need to spend a top two round draft pick on a QB.

Unless Keenum is the future. At least he has an arm and is mobile. Also a smart QB.

This is also the same fanbase that deserted their stadium to the Cheeseheads on national TV for the second half when the Pack came here.

This city gets precisely what it deserves.

Picking QBs are like pulling from a box of chocolates. You sometimes get a winner, you sometimes get a dud. Tell me how high brady was picked. Wasnt the guy the Texans dumped a Heisman trophy winner? Leinhart? Newton was a 1st round pick and he isnt all that hoi do agree though, for a good all around team, the texans need a better QB.

never thought Shaub was an elite quarterback, or even close, but he can play a methodical game and unlike some other teams we have more than 1 token receiver or person that can run the ball. you can't deny all that. what really gets me about the texans though is he has got to get in better shape. i am not this planet's greatest athlete or anything but what is wrong with him when he tries to run? i know being 6'5" may make it harder to coordinate your legs but what is going on there. i would imagine an NFL team would make their players jog every once in awhile. "not fleet of foot" if i have to hear another announcer say that

he cannot deal with pressure, yet he does not appear to be afraid to take a hard hit. nerves? anxiety? get him on some benzos.

secondary has always sucked and will always suck. they must not have to practice therefore don't know the rules/purpose of existing . i'll run this way! no you dips*** you try to block/get in front of your guy
