Texans face Pats again, under far different circumstances

Getty Images

Last December, the 11-1 Texans hit the road for a game in New England sporting old-school letterman jackets.

Since then, well, maybe the Texans can blame it on the old-school letterman jackets.

A 42-14 loss to the Patriots greased the skids for a 1-3 finish to the regular season.  The Texans then went 1-1 in the playoffs, exiting the second postseason in team history with the second loss at Gillette Stadium in five weeks.

This year, the Texans have started 2-9.  Dating back to last December’s game against the Pats, that’s a record of 4-13.

A loss Sunday will drop the Texans to 3-13 in a full regular season since the 11-1 Texans took the letterman jackets to Foxborough.

Needless to say, the old-school letterman jackets should be burned.

    THAT game last year was when I officially threw in the towel on picking the Texans to win anything consequential.

    LITTLE did I know then, that the Texans themselves would also throw in the towel.

    The only reason I disagree with the statement about the jackets is that it gives a reason to take blame away from the coaches which would be enough of a reason for Mcnair to stick with Kubes for another year.

    People made a big deal out of the Letterman jackets. I thought it was a cool thing personally.

    For a team that finishes in first place every year, the Pats always seem to have an easy schedule and no tough road games. It’s a fix.

    Texans have Kubiack and an owner that really cares. No doubt we win tomorrow.

    Needless to say, the patriots are the model franchise in the NFL.

    At this point, beating the Patriots, or anyone for that matter would be counter productive for the future of the franchise…

    And yes… the letterman jackets need to be burned.

    They may want to have Schaub wear his jacket during the burning…

    The curse of Shaun Cody …

    So, no lettermans?

    Patriots have to play with a purpose in this game…

    Oh yes the mighty Patriots were the reason for the
    Texans epic collapse. Let’s just conveniently forget they had issues long before our 2012 matchup and Gare Bare and Son of Bum take pride in avoiding adjustments to show their “game plan overcomes all” contrary to what an extra loss says….

    From an outsider looking in I thought that the Texans benched Shaub too early. I know he was rather atrocious during the early part of the season, but he has proven he knows how to win. It really comes down to the coaches and management who need to take the blame for this lost season for Houston. They obviously lack the depth to weather the injury-storm of an NFL season. Unlike the Patriots who have lost multiple key guys but keep on rolling. This one could get ugly today, quick!

    In 31 NFL cities giveaway references the ball.

    In Houston it means the game

    Patriots have been winning for 14 years. Every year. Texans are finding out how hard that is to do.

    No college jackets please.

    Nevermind that the guy who orchestrated all of it (Connor Barwin) is in Philadelphia. But yes, proceed. LOUD NOISES!!!!
