Hey as a Colts fan I truly hope Tom Savage is okay after the big hit he took today . Yes I may like the colts and this is a Texans page but truly life is way way bigger than football and always will be ! I really hope he’s able to recover well and get back out there. It isn’t okay seeing a player of any team shake like that . Hope the best for you guys !!

Every week one of these bozos come on and tell us "We have to do a better job...Tell us something we dont know... After today I need a Rockets game to get me back in the Christmas spirit....

Remember when we had kubiak as a coach, we fired him, he then won a super bowl with the broncos? Remember when we had Keenum and he barely took up any cap space, he’s now leading the Vikings to one of their best seasons in 2 decades? Fire the GM and figure out what the hell is going on. Quit firing people that leave our organization and sore in others.

Hard to do with a coach who turns Watson loose but doesn’t trust his WHITE quarterbacks enough to do the same and instead plays conservative, get into fieldgoal range and QUIT football. And don’t me get started on how bad the secondary is playing under Vrabel’s leadership.

Our guys are like paper. Seeing Savage have a seizure on the field and still want to go in shows heart. But the reality is that the game is much faster than him. He’s had so may concussions that he will have to retire early as well. I hope that he recovers for his own good but he does not need to take another snap for the Texans.

How about skipping interviews. Each week it's always a comment like this. Cancel interviews and resume them once y'all have it figured out and producing the results in a game.

Do a better job with momentum, better job blocking so Earl Mitchell isn't looking like Warren Sapp, and oh, and doing a better job handling players that had a seizure on the field...

This man had a Grand Mal Seizures on the field and yall put him back in the game ?? One of them 120 police officers who work at the stadium should have booked the team doctor or Bill O'Brien for " Failure to render aid " or Injury to the elderly ! Then I heard he was coughing up blood and phlegm ! Y'all should be ashamed of y'all selves ! Houston Texans

Watson will be back next year. Calm down. Everybody suddenly forgot we were the most exciting team to watch when Watson blew his knee. Just breathe.

How can they have all these procedures set up to protect these guys from serious head injuries and the guy is clearly knocked out and , AND has what appears to be a seizure...on the field ...and then is allowed to return to the game ...it is all a facade ..to cover and protect themselves only ...come on

In Yates we Trust! Go Texans!! I hope Savage is ok. The Team Doctors and GM need to be relieved of duties immediately!!!

Not really sure what the point of these useless Post Game Press Conferences are? Same excuses week after week, might be time to find some new material their boys.

I like the fact that you are hearing from him not O'Brien! He is owning his mistakes! Coming in cold... But still owning it!

Is that what they tell them to say when they lose a game ? Well they losing so much until i think they need to come up with a different line,because we have heard that line way to much.You know what i see,i see Big Heads,Big Pockets,Little Performance.check the purse.

I have to do Better Coach’s have to do better “Players have to do better We gotta get better And win games...”” Who’s tired of this?? it’s the EXACT same line Kubiack gave us for 8 years... We’ve gone nowhere since the franchise started. Who’s fault is this?? Who needs to go?

Texan team known as the crumble team everyone is.injured but their cks keep going to their bank why bother to win right .

Why not admit the problem is half of our key players are out and no one has stepped up to fill in those gaps, period!!!

Kicker took all the momentum away, if he has a job tomorrow, no one can lose their job (kinda like Rick Smith).

The Texans have been cursed with horrible luck this season. What started out looking like a potential for a great season has become a disaster because of serious injuries to many of our key players. Coach Bill O'Brien is doing the best he can with what he has left to work with. You people who are bad mouthing him are idiots. You people bad mouthing the players who are injured are low-life trash. I am born and raised in Houston, Texas. I will always support my home town teams. We don't need low class trash here in Houston who bad mouth our teams. (Players or coaches)

Please start Yates I cant watch another game with Savage...

Do you think we need to do a better job? We could do a better job, right? Maybe we should do a better job!

I think they need fired the coach.

Threw in towel regroup.new quarter back /coach

T.J. should back up Watson next season

What momentum, you lost??? I can't wait until Deshaun Watson comes back and they fire O'Brien.

DeAndre Hopkins is special,if he puts these kind of numbers up with scrub qb's imagine what he will do with Wason next season.

We need an offensive line that can block

Yeah cause you have to be drunk to watch the Texans fck up a given win.

Did you just lose to SF? Really? Come on Houston!!!

Pay for those tickets because I’m not

Might wanna drink something stronger. We lost to the f'ing 49ers

At least next yr the teams to beat are the eagles and jags

Drink until they’re winning. And then have someone on standby for when you blackout.

"From the team that will make you drink, no matter how bad the beer is..."

Watching that current Texans drinking Bud Light, I'd rather drink my own piss and watch Cricket.

Some day-hopefully we will get this turned around

Two ladys on right.

Rather drink root beer

$46 worth of beer

Hell pass some over here!

Once again, Nice game today !

Man I'm glad they let Bouye go. He sucks. Oh wait...

Go COWBOYS !!!!

Bud light sucks!

Check it out Steven Perry
