Running back Ben Tate had some tough words for Texans fans.

They booed so loudly during the 28-23 loss at Reliant Stadium that the Texans had to go to a silent-count on offense (something usually reserved for road games).

“These fans here in Houston are so up and down and so wishy-washy,” Tate said. “I’m just shocked at that because this organization has come a long way.

“I just feel like if you’re a true fan, you stick with the team through the tough times and we’re going through a tough time right now.”
