BOB probably had to buy 40 subscriptions to Vibe in the Clowney deal.

I missed the game but just saw the highlights. Not hard to tell what this referred to.

4 minutes left in the first half, scored tied 3-3...Texans recover fumble at Panthers 46 yard line.  Four plays later, they have 2nd and 4 at the 18 yard line driving for a lead nearing the 2-minute warning...BOB thinks that's the perfect time for someone *other* than Deshaun Watson to throw a pass, so he calls for a wide receiver throwback pass from Deandre Hopkins, who promptly lobs a dying quail up the air for an easy interception, which is run back to the 46 yard line.  Panthers go in to score the TD in the final minute instead and take a 10-3 lead into the half. 

It wasn't BOBs worst mistake of the game...after all, we were only halfway through.

Today’s umpire is losing his voice because there are sooooo many penalties.

A week after possibly his worst game as a pro, Watson's having his best.  Perfect QB rating with 6:24 to go.  Offense has been great today.

They are doing their best to make an easy victory hard.

Bill O'Brien.  Un.  Fucking.  Believable.  It's mindboggling that someone could be so fucking stupid at football.

Why the fuck is Fairbairn still on this team?

Texas should still be leading this game by a field goal, instead they trail.  100% because of Fairbairn.

Don't forget about Fuller.

Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

He's dropped four touchdown passes.  Hopkins dropped one, which then resulted in a turnover inside the 10 yard line.

Will they even let him kick?  Even if he makes it, he should be gone by Monday.

Gutsy move by BOB. The number-of-plays and time-of-possession stats are amazingly one-sided. KC's defense is pretty bad.

I guess that tells you all you need to know about Fairbairn. 

Good win.  Defense stepped up huge in the 2H, and the Texans continue to run the ball far better than I think anyone thought they could.

It would have been a real shame to lose that one. Congrats to them and hope that some of the injuries aren’t too serious.

I give BOB credit for actually running the ball in Q4, when they could’ve continue to shred that defensive secondary.

BOB and the staff coached a good game. The defense seemed to change the strategy in the 2nd half from allowing the chiefs to catch anything under 15 yards, which was an improvement. The Texans left a lot of points on the field and still won fairly convincingly for a road win in the NFL.

I’m bummed about Howard. The line has been improving and gelling, and he’ll now miss a year it seems.

If you don’t have a kicker trustworthy enough to attempt a 45 yarder in good conditions to seal a win, you don’t have a kicker.
