Hmmm i dont get it, but i like it. Damn i need a texans ice box, anyone know where to get one ?

Of course I am a Cowboys fan die hard to the core!!! but "talent"? sadly that word is
as foreign to me as soap is to a homeless person. cause the sad reality is? they aren't
talented like many think they are

in fact it would take some major digging in order to discover the origin of when they
actually had "talent" worth a damn! This is a franchise that has fallen from it's axis
of grace and turned into the second coming of the Al Davis nightmare era

Jerruh doesn't know how to get out of his own way and fans don't know how to stop
kissing his ass every year! it's the recipe for yearly disaster which I know none of you
feel sorry for

However that is the main story concerning them nothing new to see here moving along

just convert and say

Not sure if ur saying the cowboys are better or not, either way its a pitty to be ranked so high on the forbes list like the cowboys and be the 2nd best team in the state. As was said before the cowboys glory days were the 90s, what have they done since ? Nothing....Sure we havent one any superbowls but pretty sure the cowboys have like 60 +years on us.

Dallas has 33 post season wins 1960-present

Houston has 2 post season wins 2002-present

No comparison who the better overall franchise is?

Luckily for the Texans their General Manager and Owner are not the same person. So while the typical uninformed Cowboy fan clings to events that happened almost 20 years ago (or longer), they will have to sit and watch their senile leader meddle, and run off any talented coaches they may have in order to give people like Jason Garrett multiple chances to succeed.

Here's a little riddle for you:

What Dallas Cowboys defensive coach was the defensive coordinator for USC when they gave up 730 yards of total offense to the now Eagles head coach Chip Kelly when he was coaching Oregon? Give up?

Monte Kiffin, the new Cowboys Defensive Coordinator. Have fun with that this year.

Lets not forget that the Cowboys have also decided to solve their little "play calling" issue with Garrett by hiring possibly the only person less competent at play calling than Garrett (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000212869/article/bill-callahan-excited-to-call-plays-for-dallas-cowboys).

On top of that you're going to revamp your whole defense from a 3-4 to a Tampa-2 (http://www.bloggingtheboys.com/2013/1/12/3867818/dallas-cowboys-tampa-2-monte-kiffin-personnel-safety), the Tampa-2 being a defense that was absolutely carved up at the NCAA level.

I'm not saying that the Cowboys are going to be giant turds in 2013, hell they'll probably have a nice season similar to 2009 under Phillips before it all went to ****. But these changes and moves that Jones has made this offseason are especially brutal if you've been following football for awhile. Add in that it's more than likely the biggest problem for the Cowboys will still be patrolling the sidelines and making big decisions: Jason Garrett.

You also said something about Texans' fans hating someone with a "history". Tell ya what. Why don't you guys trade Herschel Walker to the Minesota Vikings again for 8 first round draft pics.

Garrett said he told players to look up the Pythagorean theorem if they didn’t know it.


Players on the Cowboys may not be thrilled about getting a math lecture, but Garrett just did a big favor to geometry teachers across the country. This fall, when schoolkids across the country inevitably ask when they’re going to need to know this in real life, their teachers can say that if you want to play in the NFL, you’d better know the Pythagorean theorem.

I have reached a point where I honestly dont care about this team anymore. A rivalry has never formed on the field (unless you take preseason games seriously lol) and there is nothing new that I have not heard from both sides say to each other. I prefer the TITans/Colts rivalry and now I believe its going to get good between us and the Pats.

Partial training camp in Oxnard the remaining time is spent back in Texas
so now let me answer your question

part of it is Jerruh couldn't score a deal with the city of San Antonio to
hold camp there...and so he wanted a place were players had a better
climate (easier working conditions) so Oxnard got picked due to less
heat during the summer months

Your quite the Cowboys historian. Couldn't have had anything to do with the Cowboys having a 25 year history of California training camps before Jerry ever got there.

I am serious when I say this,

people really need to stop getting on that bus when it comes to the division
title! it's meaningless, the media only uses it to hype up the team for next
season

the ones who matter are the ones who win a Lombardi title not the ones
who win a division title and make the playoffs

Division title means automatic playoff birth. Can't win the Super Bowl without a playoff birth. Pretty sure they mean something. Reference this board 2 years ago.

Well, if that's your definition of a rivalry, this can't be one since the Bengals have never beaten the Texans with anything on the line. As you've implied, rivalries can't work one-way.

Maybe so... but it's gotta hurt going into week 17 knowing if you win that game... that one game, you would have a chance to go on & win that Lombardi... if you could only win that one game.

But you lose that game. You don't win the division. You don't get into the play offs. You don't win the Lombardi.

Two years in a row, the same scenario. You win, you're in.

Exactly

IMO when Andre dropped the biggest case of whoop a** on Finnegan that's when it became a true rivalry for me. After that the games vs the Titans were always something to watch. I know to most people they actually like the Titans as evidenced by the hardcore cheering when Vince Young scored on us and he basically got a standing ovation.

I hated the cowboys, now I just don't care and every time I see a Texan fan arguing with a Cowboys fan they just bring up the same points over and over. "We got five rings", "we have won more playoff games" after a while it gets tiring and I'm not one to get excited over preseason games. But to each his own.

It is what it is!!!

whether you don't make the post season and get another chance or
you do make the post season and get another chance,

Losing ends all bets and that is the price you pay when you are
gambling in high stakes. and so it means nothing in the end if you
came in hoping for the best only the reality of you going home with
your head hung in shame is all you take away at the end of the day

so don't expect keys to the city and a large parade with fans
lining the street cheering as you ride down the main drag, You
clean out your locker and pray like hell there is a job waiting for
you next season

Are you enjoying not winning the division and being in 3rd in your division? Because cleaning out lockers and not winning division titles is becoming common place in Dallas. Facts speak for themselves. Winning cures all and the Cowboys have a serious case of not going to the dance.

I see.

So when Dallas was backing into the play offs, going one & done & we were on the outside looking in, making the play offs was a big deal.

Now that we're winning our division & advancing past the Wild-Card round while Dallas is clearing out their lockers, it's no big deal.

I see how you are.

PapaL
07-31-2013, 09:50 AM
Having never won a Lombardi title I really can not expect you to undersmakitand
true expectations, but will give it a shot

Dallas is buried deep in history, Landry's era winning 2 titles with great teams
Johnson's 90's dynasty winning it 3 times in a 4 year span.

and now we have the Jerruh era! which has produced nothing since the
fore mentioned era's above

the point I am making here

is the emphasis is not on something you can not hold on to, but the 1
prize you can hold on to.

So at the end of the day it does not matter if you had a winning record
that is gone once you reach the post season. doesn't matter if you won
the division that too is also gone once you reach the post season

Hell even wins in the regular season just like the loses in the regular
season are gone as well! like I said that is the price payed when you
are playing in high stakes gambling

these guys aren't looking back at last week and saying gee fella's
remember when I picked off Jay Cutler and destroyed their biggest
Linebacker on my way for the game winning TD in OT?

They know what the result was and now it's new week and last week
is last week! the result is or isn't in their favor, nothing they can do
to change it..

Simply put

It's let go they move on until they can no longer go any further due to
winning of the super bowl or they fell short of winning the super bowl

if they fall short, as I said there is no ticker tape parade, fans lining
the street and keys to the city while people make speeches

and so I am not about to cling to the unimportant stuff and get all
worked up knowing that their is a bigger goal I expect them to claim


You want to talk playoffs? They've won TWO playoff games since their last championship; 17 seasons ago. You don't win a Superbowl without winning playoff games. Wins from 20 to 40 years ago mean squat today.

Even the Cowboys Official site talks about winning regular season games to get into the playoffs!

Can This Cowboys Team Get That Elusive Playoff Win?; LINK (http://www.dallascowboys.com/news/article-NickEatman/1-Can-This-Cowboys-Team-Get-That-Elusive-Playoff-Win/83e380c2-3e2f-459f-a02b-e8740cf7ac8b)

But fans want to know if the Cowboys will finally be good enough to translate their success to playoff wins. Obviously the last two years, they have come up short in the final game of the season, losing to the Giants in 2011 and Washington in 2012 with the NFC East title on the line.


Holding on to championships from the 70's and 90's is like the Prom Queen that got old and fat. Yeah she was hot once but you sure as hell wouldn't bang her now. You keep remembering those days while the rest of the league looks at winning now.

This is what you don't have and so like I said it is hard for you to
understand true expectations..These guys have 1 goal to be like the
greats on the wall or get the hell out the way

and I can tell you with out a single doubt in my mind that is not going
to be achieved unless they win a Lombardi title


The players on the Cowboys are professional athletes just like players on every other NFL team. To think they have different expectations of themselves simply because they play for the Cowboys is dumb. The "greatness" and aura of a team is more for the fans than for the players.

wins from 10-20 years ago mean all the world to players on the roster
today, because these are the guys they idolize and look up and have
a hard time ignoring when they walk down the hall to Jerruh's office or
to the weight and film room and there hanging on the wall


I agree with that. Those trophies in the case should let every player know they're falling short of that legacy.

I don't know if I agree with that. Before these guys were players they were fans or NFL observers...

They know about team mystique just like all the fans do.

That's not to say that someone drafted to the Jaguars isn't going to work hard, but there is a different feeling around an organization when you walk in the building and see multiple hall of fame players, several championship trophies and just a rich history of winning.

As a player you know that you are in a place where the expectations of you are championship or bust. Greatness is your goal.

In some other place where there isn't that rich history of winning the atmosphere is a lot more forgiving if you have a good season and do good things but don't win or make a superbowl.

The players know that. They feel that.

that's right they are professional athletes and as professional athletes
they do not put themselves above the all time greats, they know what
they must do in order to achieve the respect they want

They win a Lombardi title or they continue to give the greats
the homage they rightfully have earned, there is no room at
the top for 2

There can only be 1 Romo and everyone since the triplets has known
this to be the case.

yet it seems fans still can't grasp what is the simplest of concepts
fighting over what mediocrity is the better mediocrity? the answer
is no mediocrity is better

Despite what the mediots have said repeatedly...there isn't ice cream
and cake for the runners up as a pity party cheer up!



if the Cowboys and Texans both started their inaugural seasons in 2002
then yes your statement is correct.

but here in reality your statement is false

Dallas is 5 decades ahead of the expansion Texans as far as existence
goes and light years ahead in wins including that of the post season,
division titles, conference and Lombardi title

there is no comparison between the 2 except in the fact that
both current teams are unable to achieve the ultimate prize
making them equal not greater

My statement is in no way false. Since the inception of the Texans in 2002 (or the last 11 seasons) the Texans have won twice as many playoff games as the 'Gurls over that span.


FACT!

Comprehension is key!

I think all that has more do with the current make up of an organization rather than the history behind it. I would say the mindset of the Texans organization right now is not much different than that of the Packers, Steelers, Patriots, or Cowboys. But when an organization that has a long tradition of winning starts to lose, I don't think players have a different mindset. I don't think Cowboys players during the Dave Campo years were in awe because of the team they were on, simply because those teams weren't any good. So even though the Texans have sucked for most of our short existence, this team probably has the same mentality that the Patriots, Packers, or Ravens do because they're all capable of winning the Super Bowl and not because of the history of the franchise.

As both a Cowboys fan (since birth) and a Texans fan (since the team started), the "rivalry" between the fanbases is just dumb. Unless Cowboys fans are being intentionally antagonistic, they usually don't really care about the Texans.

It always seems that Houston's weird (and undeserved) inferiority complex always seems to pop up in anything Dallas.

I think a lot of it is due to the obnoxious behavior of most of their fans. IMO, most of them are just snobby simply because their team is the “almighty" Cowboys. I don't get the same vibe from fans of other teams who have had equal or more success. They love to live off their Super Bowl wins but seem ignorant of the fact that an entire generation of fans has grown up seeing the Cowboys as nothing better than mediocre the last two decades.

I think all that has more do with the current make up of an organization rather than the history behind it. I would say the mindset of the Texans organization right now is not much different than that of the Packers, Steelers, Patriots, or Cowboys.

Their goals are the same, yes. But there is a different feeling when you walk into a building where there has been great history.

Players have even said as much. They've talked about the mystique of being on certain teams. Opposing players even talk about what it means to play against certain teams in their stadiums.

And naturally teams with rich histories have more fans. More fans = more attention. That in itself equates to more pressure because you're going to be in the spot light more.

If the Cowboys go to the superbowl there'd be so much interest in that game because they are so polarizing. People that don't even care about the teams involved would be watching with a rooting interest. Compare that to a team like the Cardinals going to the Superbowl...It's a nice little story, but there's not nearly the spectacle of it all.

I will admit that my "angst" towards the Cowboys has faded in recent years.

I grew up hating them because when I was a kid in Houston so many other kids were Cowboys fans and were always running down the Oilers and being so arrogant about the Cowboys. One in particular would never let it go even after the Oilers beat them on that Thanksgiving game in 1979. The Cowboys of course "were cheated" that day. I heard every excuse in the book and zero credit going to Earl and the Oilers.

I lived in Dallas in the mid 90's for a couple of years and actually liked the area. I grew up thinking I hated the city of Dallas because of the Cowboys however it is a good area to live. I also found the native Cowboys fans in Dallas were not the arsholes I was encountering in Houston. Most were pretty realistic fans and above all SHOULD be fans of the Cowboys since that is their home team.

Now that I live in Florida I never see Cowboys fans here. Actually it's the first state I have ever lived in where there are not a ton of Cowboys fans around (lived in New York and Philadelphia area before and plenty up there). I think I have seen 2 since coming here and they were probably "Mouse People" anyway.

So while Florida is getting bad press because Zimmerman, Casey whatever her name is, etc, there are some real positives here, that being one of them.

To me the Cowboys have become irrelevant. The Texans are a better team and organization and I don't see that changing as long as Jerrah is around. Eventually I think most Texans fans will start becoming like me. Any "bitterness", etc will just fade away because there will be no reason for it.

Also, the teams are not even in the same conference so there is no on field rivalry and probably never will be. Probably a good amount of Cowboys fans in Houston will jump ship to the Texans (as they were already doing in Austin before I left) and say it's because of Jerrah. All of that will just lead to apathy towards the Cowboys.

So enjoy these threads while you can.

I don't live in Houston, I'm 90 miles East in the Golden Triangle. We don't have our own professional sports teams, so we've always latched onto the closest ones. Growing up there were Oiler fans, Cowboy fans, Saints fans (we're 30 minutes from Louisiana) Rockets fans, Spurs fans (never saw any Maverick fans until recently).

I had a really cool Oilers Letterman style jacket I wore from 3rd grade to like the 5th ('78 through '81) I loved that jacket. That was way before "Starters" & Reebok & Nike getting huge. It was the only one I had ever seen, that had the derrick on the back without the helmet. I got so much attention because it was so unique.

Mind you, I wasn't a football fan at the time. I knew there were games on Sundays, I knew Houston was winning a bunch of games at the time. I remember the Luv ya Blue campaign, everyone was saying it. I remember Earl Campbell was everyone's favorite player... but that was probably it. I didn't even know what the Super Bowl was back then.

But I loved that jacket.

now to your comment

If you can show me were the Texans not the Oiler's are currently
housing their Lombardi titles to back up their claims of success
I'll back off and leave it alone

but if you fail to provide me proof?

you owe me a apology

First off we are the texans not the oilers, so that has nothing to do with us anyways.

And who cares what you guys did in the 80s and 90s. His point is that since we have existed which is 2002 we have won more play-off games then you guys.

Godalmighty, this is such a tiring argument:

- Cowboys suck!
- We won 5 Superbowls.
- Romo threw 5 int's the other day.
- We won 5 Superbowls.
- Jerry got another facelift.
- We won 5 Superbowls.

No one is taking Cowboys history away. Everyone knows that the Cowboys were once a great organization, one that won multiple championships and assembled great teams, one that was worthy of being admired. TexasCowboy, even you know that they no longer are that type of an organization. I'm not a Cowboy hater, a lot of my friends are Cowboys fans, but throwing out the 5 Superbowls as an argument every single time is ridiculous. We don't live in a binary world, there are shades of gray, and while I understand that this thread is confrontational by definition, we can still have a normal discussion here. Most of us are much younger than you are and don't have the memories of the 60's and 70's Cowboys the way you do, and the last 15 years of Cowboys history are not something to be admired.

It is kind of a dated argument, but it's undeniable that the Cowboys franchise has climbed the mountain twice; first with Staubach, and second with an entirely different team under Aikman. Very few franchises can claim that. Cowboys, Packers, Steelers, Giants, among the few.

It's also true that ever since the Texans began playing, neither the Texans nor the Cowboys has threatened to win a title. The race is on to see who can build a championship team in this era, but neither team has yet grabbed the reins.

True, but the team the Cowboys fielded (& the Steelers for that matter) in 2012 were no where near the top of that mountain. The Steelers had been there recently, & will probably be grazing near the top of the top of the mountain soon enough.

But the Cowboys, that group of guys they've got running the show right now... not so much. Jerruh & his boys displaying those trophies in his stadium would be no different than if Bob beat Jerry in a game of poker & brought them to H-Town. The last decade of Cowboy's history tells you how much of those trophies were Jimmy & how much of them were Jerry.

whenever someone turns around and says!!! that it doesn't matter
what someone did 15-20 years ago, is not only trying to take away
history. But is a direct slap in the face to those who have earned
their right to be called winners

I don't know about that. The only person left from the Cowboy's 90s dynasty is Jerrah & Garrett. Most people don't give them much credit for that era because Garrett was a back up & Jerrah ruined your team.

Most of us here have much respect for Emmit & don't appreciate the way he was ushered out of Dallas. Respect for Troy Aikman, even though some of us understate his ability as a QB & leader. Much respect for Larry Allen, most of that OL, DL, LBs, FBs.... heck, all the players that made it happen.

The team that will take the field in 2013, like you say doesn't "size up"

When I say the Cowboys suck, I'm not talking about the dynasty, or the Triplettes. I'm talking about Romo & Jerrah.

It isn't someone - it is something, a team. The someones who were on that team are gone. There is no slap in the face to anyone on those Staubach and Aikman teams to say they haven't done anything since.

Brandon Moore, Brandon Moore, snap finger, scratch head, thinking... I'll be back, need to do some research.

Ok, I'm back. I picked up the following info from Wikipedia.

Brandon Lamont Moore (born June 3, 1980)
Signed by the New York Jets as an undrafted free agent in 2002.
Signed with the New York Jets as an undrafted free agent on April 26, 2002.
After spending time with the practice squad, Moore first saw action in 2003, appearing in three games and starting one.
The Jets released Moore on February 26, 2009; he was re-signed on February 27, 2009.
Moore was finally selected to his first Pro Bowl after the 2011-2012 season
On August 7, 2013, Moore signed a one year deal with the Dallas Cowboys.
Shortly after, retired to be with family.

Best wishes to Mr. Moore as he enters the next phase of life.

Cowboy fans think in context of "we" as in "we won five superbowls", not reality, as in Roger Starbauch, Troy Aikman and their teammates won those superbowls. All fans are guilty of this but those whose teams have accomplished the most in the past but no foreseeable hope of even coming close in the future are the worst, i.e. cowboy fans. Can't say I blame them, when your future is as dim as The Mariana trench, I would harp on the past too.

Nothing funnier than a fan of a non super bowl winning franchise
attempting to explain something he really could never understand

I mean that is like the virgin saying I know everything bout sex

Fans have a roll they play it's called their effort which players
respect knowing the countless hours and money they spent
vacationing to see a home game, or purchasing merchandise
hell even spending hours talking bout them online or at their
place of work

are they lesser because they do not wear pads and play the actual
game? nope not 1 iota!! you are treated like a share holder and a
friend and can brag because they watched and supported their team
to super bowl glory

I understand just fine, it's not rocket science. You had good, even great teams, thanks in part to the dumbass Vikings, and now you wallow in mediocrity thanks to your dumbass owner who is to prideful to hire a real GM. Because your present sucks so bad, you relive those old "glory days". Probably pop in a VHS tape every feb and imagine its your boys playing in the big game again, just like that sad ex jock at high school reunions who hasn't done jack with his life since HS and loves to relive a time in his life when he wasn't so pathetic. Don't throw those tapes away, because 20 years from now, it will still be the last Superbowls your boys attended without a ticket.

That is were the falsehood begins...it's in general not solely what the
here and now does for you, because what if the here and now does
not live up to highest standards attained by previous teams?

the here and now is irrelevant at that point and it remains that
way till someone comes along and takes away that irrelevancy.

Until then all that counts are the following era's 71,77,92,93 and 95
the rest you may as well forget about cause mentioning them is not
worth it

In Houston that is not the case

In Houston this is a new team, new franchise looking to make it's own
name for themselves!

now the reality is?

Yes you have won a few games here and there, but still have a overall
losing record since 2002. but you have had some records in that time
span that you could call "positive"

which include 2 division titles and 2 post season wins

Which nobody but you really remembers once the season ended!
since the media only hyped you till you could no longer be hyped
and the bottom fell out sending you home in disappointment

Were I differ?

I acknowledge the Cowboys short comings but in no way hype
the hard times and look for the rainbow at the end of the tragedy

A spade is a spade...you are what you are!! no amount of pats on
the back or look on the bright side speech is going to change the
fact you entered the season with 1 goal in mind.

you failed to achieve that goal, Baltimore in 2012 didn't fail the
rest did. Harsh reality I know but Tom Landry said it best

There is no such thing as second place




I don't think they are losers, I know they are losers if it quacks like
a duck it's a duck



you don't see me calling them a winner right? then I must be calling them
a loser

You ramble on and on and try to sound smart to the point point i cant read it all cause i just start to see BS all over the screen.

The here and now is all that matters. Your mentality is that of a cowboys fan and it is obvious that you cant stop reliving the past since the future has been meaningless for your boys.

Now run along and go watch your 1990's superbowl highlights.

The fact of the matter is that 11 years is a long drought for any franchise and both the Texans and the Cowboys have experienced one, and neither has been close to capturing one of those trophies.

Neither team has much to crow about, and despite how good either team may look on paper, both could go down in flames again this season.

I guess technically you're right because anything can happen, i.e. injuries, and kill any team's season. But barring an injury catastrophe, the Texans are looking at 10+ wins and making the playoffs. The Cowboys are looking at another 8-8 season (+/- a win or so), and if they're lucky, they could win their division. I give them about a 30% chance of that.

but you see I do watch the games and no I am not a fan when they only

I could careless what year it is, the goal is the same whether the year

that obtainable realistic goal

then NO I have no use for you and do turn my back on you and any

So since the 1996 - 2012 Cowboys did not win the Super Bowl, they suck right?

& their chances of winning one in 2013 aren't much better since their biggest problem is still running the team, the 2013 Cowboys suck.

& since the 2013 Cowboys are the only ones that exist today, most people would understand any conversation about the Cowboys are referring to the 2013 Cowboys who have no chance of winning the Super Bowl & since they have no chance of winning the Super Bowl.......

$115 million deal to fund Dallas Cowboys indoor training facility, corporate headquarters to anchor mixed use development (http://friscoblog.dallasnews.com/2013/08/115-million-deal-to-fund-dallas-cowboys-indoor-training-facility-headquarters.html/)

The city of Frisco, Frisco ISD, the Frisco Economic Development Corporation and the Frisco Community Development Corporation will fund a $115 million project that includes an indoor practice facility and corporate headquarters for the Dallas Cowboys.

The project will be on 91 acres owned by the Frisco CDC at Warren Parkway and the Dallas North Tollway.

The Cowboys will not put any capital into building the project but will be responsible for the maintenance and operations of the stadium complex, estimated to be $1.5 million a year.

So much to say, but I am speechless.

I probably should have quoted more to make it clear this will be used and funded for a high school football program.

The cowboys will pay the upkeep, but not the building costs.

Patterson said Frisco ISD was already looking to build another outdoor stadium, so this partnership with the Cowboys will save the district money. The district will use the indoor stadium for high school football games on Thursday and Friday nights.


DMN’s Brandon George talked to Stephen Jones with the Cowboys. Jones told George the new facility in Frisco wouldn’t change the team’s philosophy on leaving the DFW area for training camp.

Let's do some math. Jones is 70. His brain -- as we now know thanks to science -- is 40. Extrapolating that data (and assuming proper conditioning and technology keeps the rest of his body in working order), we can safely approximate Jones having a 146-year lifespan.

No, a Texans fan bought my ticket. I went last weekend to the dress rehearsal because that was close to the real deal.

I need to talk to a couple of relatives that were there, but based on Channel 13's shots, it appeared that the Texans fans far exceeded ours. That was my motivation for my post, all in fun of course, thanking the Texans for showing up for a game the Boys fans weren't interested in attending. Dress rehearsal game last week had really good attendance.

As you are aware, the fans from each team are quite different. Last weekend when the Thursday night game was advertised, there wasn't any response, yet when anything about the Cowboys is announced in Reliant, the crowd erupts with boos. I wonder it they took that attitude on the road.

You reminded me of the late '80's when they had a double-digit loss season then went 1-15. Not a Cowboy fan to be found and I mean that almost literally (in Austin). Then the Hershel trade and *boom* every football fan in the city went back to cross-dressing as Cowboy fans again. Hilarious.

Yeah, TC wants to have his cake and eat it too. He wants to forget the 'Boys are treading water, unexciting, uninteresting, unlikable (as always), and are the inferior Texas team in the NFL today. The Texans are more relevant and more interesting on many levels. It's exciting to be a Texans fan because we have been their from the start and have paid our dues as fans.

It's all good. When Cowboy fans bring up the past like the fat guy on the couch talking about the good 'ol days when he played high school ball, the discussion is over. The icing on the cake is seeing them get snotty about it...:D

super bowls since the triplets? none, Reality? with out the current
team contributing only leaves room for the real greatness to be
left in place uninterrupted

now if your "texans" had actually won a Lombardi title..
this concept would be easy for you to understand

but since you don't have 1 to call your own, it's like
explaining to a virgin what it's like to get laid by the
hot chick in school

you repeatedly go through the entire process start to finish
and all there is? is drooling and a look of confusion like huh?

that is why it is also pointless to explain how the media is
just using you, and using their influence to hype you and
get you all worked up over nothing like this is a pee wee
league where everyone is a winner

the truth is there is 1 winner and everyone else has to
suffer through the embarrassing time of what went wrong?

that is how players learn, and they unlike you get it and
don't brag on the things which they know they can't brag
about

you on the other hand still do not understand this and
brag as if the world cares if the texans did this, that,
or the other thing?

no, nobody cares the texans like 31 other teams were all
used tampons last year, used up to soak up as much of the
excitement/hype as they could get out of you

and when it was all over said and done with! you were
dis guarded in the trash, just like everyone else

no exceptions, no parades, no keys to the city, no
meeting with the president

just lockers to clean out and a hope that next year can be better

that's it!

Maybe I missed it somewhere here in the 15 pages of posts but I haven't seen any Texans standing on rooftops shouting we were suprebowl bound. What I have seen is your sorry has been azz telling us about your championships and why that makes you better then us. You're right, there are 31 tampons every year and yours is bloodier then ours because you cant even make the playoffs.

Parcells - check, but left on his own accord as he was famous for doing. Remember before becoming a Cowboy, he retired rather than coach the Bucs. They later tried to sue him.
Payton - looks as though he would have been the better choice for the head coaching job.

failed to achieve the ultimate goal

First playoff wins in our franchise history of course we are going to brag about them. We are watching our team grow and establish history. Cowboy fans say we have won nothing in 12 years well getting a Superbowl win in today's game is pretty hard, hence the failure of the Cowturds also not getting any NEW championships. We might not have the luxury of our ancestors getting championships but at least we get to be there when our team rides the ship. And these idiots bringing the oilers into this have got to be the dumbest people on the planet because they still exist and are now in Tennessee along with all their history and records. Had the oilers won a Superbowl I guarantee that every Cowturds fan would rub it in our face that the city of Houston has no superbowls now. Besides I don't hear the people of Cleveland trying to take credit for the ravens two superbowls.

IMO, Candace was a much better choice.

Had a chance to google her and she does look like an upgrade. I'll give ya that.

Texascowgirl, I find it funny that of all the people here you'd be the one to lament the media. The cowboys are perhaps the most overhyped team in all sports over the last decade. On espn there's the yankees and the cowboys. The cowboy propaganda machine has been forced on us more then any other team and i've never understood it. I really dont need a constant scroll on the bottom of espn broadcasts telling me what kind of toilet paper jerry uses. No one cares. I think the truth is the Texans are finally getting more media attention then the cowboys nationally and you can't stomach it.

Honest question. As a Texan fan, when the Texans win do you cheerfully say "they won today?" or "They are going to the playoffs?" I 100 percent guilty of using "we" win or lose with comments such as dam* we lost again, whew we pulled that one out or we kicked butt, etc., all from my stadium seat or sitting in front of a TV.:)

How is it silly? as a fan when your team wins a champion you do
earn a right to brag...you've earned the right via the fact you've
been a loyal supporter the entire time and not as many have done
which is jumped on when the times have been great

so I have earned the right to brag because regardless of the outcome
of the season. I've been loyal enough to hang in there even in their
times of great disappointment

And when they win a super bowl I can be proud and brag at what
they accomplished as a franchise/team

of course and as usual,

You fail to grasp that concept since Houston has never won the big 1
don't hold your breath, i think the cowboys are done winning superbowls for quite some time.

Everyone loves a winner and the media uses that towards their
advantage any chance they can get!

just remember many of these pencil pushing desk jockey's were
once kids sitting home in front of the television, watching Roger
out there throwing a pass down the field. and saw Tom Landry
on the sidelines and got hooked

Nothing wrong with that,

what is wrong? is when the media starts feeding you lots of info
that doesn't matter but like the corrupt machine that they are, they
just keep doing it to keep you away from the reality of truth

Things like pushing the here and now and ignoring what everyone
else did (past) mindless and pointless stats and the best one of
them all?

the everyone is a winner argument

That is the kind of **** you hear when your a kid so your made
to not feel bad that you didn't win the state championship

Losing is a part of the game, you don't have to like it but
you do have to accept it, the media is telling you that is
not the case

yes, you lost today but got nothing to hang your head in shame
about!!

Wrong,

it's all about winning that is all this sport is geared towards
win, win, win, and when I say win I am talking about the
constant pressure to win a state championship, a national
title or a super bowl ring

They do not hand out keys and rings to those who failed to
achieve that! there is no ticker tape parade, nobody gets to
meet the President of the United States

the only thing you get is that branded seal on your ass!!!

FAILURE

until you win the game that matters most and achieve what
this sport was meant for? Ultimate glory not partial glory and
some ice cream

Your circular rhetoric is familiar. Have you met dex? I think the 2 of you would get along famously.

In defense, I will readily admit screaming "we made it!" and hugging a co-worker in a very heterosexual fashion the first time the Texans clenched a play off spot. Taking ownership of a team isn't supper uncommon and personally i'm usually in a good mood or bad mood for a couple of days after a Texan's game. It shouldn't be that personal but it is. I shouldn't react that way but I do.

Despite that, I dont wrap onto 20 year old titles with bare white knuckles and continue to present myself as a champion. 20 years ago I was a virgin. 20 years ago mc hammer and the back street boys were cool. 20 years ago I had a future. The cowboys have no future as long as Jerry is at the helm. Good luck to you for all the suffering ahead...probably another 20 years before you get a real owner.

Regardless of when the next one is coming?
the reality is those 5 existing are our notoriety
and can never be taking away



what you wrap around? is the playoff argument nobody especially Cowboys fans cares
about

if being a loser is what you enjoy...have fun with it but don't flaunt that stupid
**** in our face and think it makes it any better than anyone else?

cause in the end your not

Your comparing a team with 50 years of history vs a team with a dozen (?) No sh*t you have more titles and wins. Thanks captain obvious. However, since our inception you've won as many titles as we have. You have less playoff wins then we do. What the f*ck are you bragging about? Your flaunting stupidity. And congratulations, you do it well.

I couldn't agree more. This guy's post are miserable. Nothing worthwhile to say ,but he hates us so much he HAS to say something . Kinda like watching a bad movie the first time and you already know the ending to it because the plot sucks so bad. "We have a championship!" Hey everybody, " we have a title." People born on the day you won that title are now eligible to drive. Yippee!

There are 31 teams this year who wont win a championship. For 30 of them the good news is they don't have jerry.

There are certain truths about myself which I've come to accept. Among these are:

a. I'm a playa-hater. I've been one for some time and proudly guzzle my hater-ade. Hateration/Hater-NATION!

b. I grew up disliking the Cowboys (as a Oiler fan) and that "dislike" grew into full blown LOATHING when the Oilers went to Tennessee and the local media and Cowboy fans and the local media tried to shove them down my throat as if I was to become a defacto fan simply because my team was gone.

c. Despite my openly cheering for ANY team which plays the Cowboys on any given Sunday and wanting to dance a jig when they lose one ESPECIALLY after attempting some last second heroics, I respect them as a team.

d. The only owner whom I want to see holding Vincent Lombardi's trophy :trophy: LESS than Jerry Jones is Budd Addams.

That being said, I won't talk smack about these guys until the season ACTUALLY starts and I see their starters in action. But my feelings can best be summed up by late sports writer Bert Sugar from the title of his Cowboy hating bible:

"I Hate the Dallas Cowboys...and Who Elected Them America's Team Anyway?"

Still don't get the Texans vs. Cowboys (fans only) rivalry.

Sometimes I think its an effort for some Texans fans to deny that they were Cowboys fans before the Texans showed up.:kitten:

That sticks in my craw about as bad as they "I used to be an Oilers fan!" people. You know, the ones that didn't show up until three years ago when the Texans got good.

For the record, I love both teams. Grew up on the Boys, but became a fan of the Texans when they started.

I have plenty to cheer for the fact Dallas is established, and that nothing can
ever take away what all ready is? no amount of recent history changes that

so really all there is? is for Romo and the present day team to get on board
with the other all time Dallas greats, or just be another name in the book of
having played but did nothing

Either way it's a win/win for me

You know, I really have no beef with the Cowboys or their fans. I had lived in Dallas long enough that most of my friends are Cowboys fans. But none of them are like you. The Cowboys to me are in part a source of entertainment in how they find different ways to screw themselves over. It all mainly revolves around Jerry and how back-asswards he is. I actually like a number of their players, including Romo.

You and I are from different generations, so there is probably a disconnect somewhere in the way we think. I mean no disrespect by it, but the way you talk in this thread reminds me of Uncle Rico from Napoleon Dynamite. I really can't think of a better analogy.

Showtime100
09-04-2013, 04:48 PM
of course people still care bout Dallas, if not these types of threads wouldn't
exist

Not really. I see this instance as a chicken and egg-type thing. Did the Cowboy-bashing begin with this thread? No. Would we be talking about the Cowboys this, the beginning of the season? VERY little, if any, except for the preseason game that meant nothing.

What I mean is this. Anybody could start a thread beginning with "Let's make fun of [fill in the blank]" and with just about any team it will act as a starting gun to make fun.

Do many of us dislike the Cowboys? Sure. Many of us grew up in Houston where the Oilers called home and some turncoat-bandwagon-soulless-enormously obnoxious football fans decided to call the Cowboys their team, forsaking their own city and it's community. We endured them as long as they were respectful but most often they asked for what eventually came their way. Yep, in elementary school I got in a fight or two with Houstonian Cowboys, they begged for it. So, I never liked the team in general. Moreover, I've never found them to be likable with the exception of the Meredith days.

As others have pointed out the Cowboys of today are just sort of ....there. I see non-Dallasite Cowboy fans a lot here in Austin, but we get along fine even though they are year-in, year-out champs of worst fans in the NFL. It's the fans in Dallas I don't mind and can talk football with in an enjoyable fashion.

Today I hate the Titans, still hate the Steelers and all teams from the old AFC Central, with the possible exception of the Browns who were never there. I have major sports-hate for most AFC teams for one reason or another. The Cowboys?? Not anymore in comparison to years past.

The Cowboys are a once every four year opponent whose problems are mainly due to the one guy that will not be fired, the owner. Yes, I love the comedy that comes out of Dallas both on and off the field these days.

So somebody started a thread saying let's "make fun of them Cowboys." "Cowboys" could have been replaced with any number of other teams. The "Charger look alike" thread should be up by now. Where is it?? ...lol.

My short post gone long is, don't flatter yourself in thinking the Cowboys are something special. As we all know, that was then, this is now.

I'd slap a "Cowboys" fan back into reality if this were a "Cowboys"
message board. but it's not and I'd rather talk bout the greatness
then get into mindless debates about which end of the stick smells
****tier?

Grab hold of the reins, man. This is and NFL board equipped with and NFL section to talk about all the teams our members want to talk about. Simple. Notice how the conversation in regard to the Cowboys wasn't about football? I did too. Not much to talk about there.

Not the same, but you just reminded me of the Cubs fan who tried to tell me I was a closet Cubs fan just because I said I was watching the Cubs game on TV at the time. It reminds me because arrogance, I guess.

I am not a Cowboys fan even though I watch most of their games. I still don't understand why so many Texans fans even waste the time to hate on them. Different Conference so we see them every 4 years. To be honest....I'm sure most Cowboys fans are more concerned with the Giants, Eagles and Redskins more than they are the Texans. We are probably ranked 10 on their list of "rival" teams. They are ranked number one hated team by the Texans fans and we only played them 3 times. I guess its just a Houston Dallas championship thing. They are winning I hate to say.
