It helps to take a look back and remember that you actually saw the impossible happen before your very eyes...

Enjoy!!!

Yes, my wife who's a Cowboys fan, was sitting next to me having a coronary watching this go down as it did.

I don't think i've ever taken so much joy in her agony like i did that night since.

My wife is a Cowboys fan too. I didn't know her then, but I wish I could have seen the look on her face.

That was truly a magical moment. I got chills and my eyes got moist seeing it again. That game is forever etched in my memory as one of the great ones in the history of this franchise.

Pay attention to what one of the broadcasters says at the 2min. 30sec. mark.
Oh, the irony!!! :dangit:

Ahhh, I remember it well. Considering I was edged and in Las Vegas ESPNZone at the time, that is saying a lot. That was an AWESOME game. And 2 of my buddies at the table were/are from Dallas.

File this under the surreal -- while watching the game, there was a big fight at the table next to us, on the other side of the glass. It was like having glass seats at a hockey game. Blood flew. I don't know if it was from broken glass, or something more sinister like a knife. I was amazed at how fast security came out of the woodwork. After all, the casino was 10 paces away.

all the best,
rick

"Oh look at the blocking from the offensive line. He has no one around him."

Not only that. Carr planted his back foot and actually delivered the ball.

I like the statement there at the end, "The Texans drive the length of the field on the strength of David Carr's arm".

Thanks for the memory.

I actually shouted "YES!" when the touchdown came! Talk about getting caught up in the excitement...just like that very special night that no true Texan will ever forget!

Here's to a new season, and a new era of hope in Houston! :texflag:

I'll never forget that night. Couldn't talk for 3 days afterward. The roar of that crowd gives me chills --- I can't wait for it to be like that again. And it will.

Damm near broke my leg on the Bradford TD that came later - luckily the guy in front of me broke my fall ... we were all in the aisles... we could see that play open up from the snap ... it came right at us in the SW red zone....

Now I'm going to have to watch the entire game again.

Mike Patrick and Al Michaels are two of my favorite play by play guys of all time.

No problem! It is great to refuel the fire before we start a new season. With all of the problems behind us, we need to remember that with a new season and some better players, there comes a brand new shot at greatness!

When the Texans get good, the city will blow up.

I like it when Joe T says that we set the record for loudest stadium ever. And then point out that we were so loud we knocked the ball off of the tee.

WOW! Thanks for the memory. What stands out the most is what a different David we had then before he was snakebit, than we had 5 long years later.

Man, I can't wait until we have those kinds of crowds and noise again. I think I remember we were setting noise records for confusing the other team that year.

Two more weeks and counting.

Thank you for this post. I was the biggest carr backer as a texans fan. and now i remember why. He and mr mcnair brought football back to Texas and to the truest of loyal fans that were abandoned by bud adams and blocked at every turn by skeletor from gaining or regaining a team(SA and Houston) It was a great moment that i will remeber forever. I am so fired up for the season now. Battle red baby!!!

For the first time in six years, the NFL is back in Houston!

Music to our ears....

That night was definitely one of my most memorable sports events....next to beating Indy last year, Mike Scott's no-hitter, and Jeff Kent's homerun. Good times, and I hope to have a LOT more of 'em!

Man my goosebumps won't go away. I remember thinking during that whole game......."Everyone was wrong.....we aren't going to be as bad as predicted." I was on such a high I honestly thought the Texans were going to have a winning season. Not only winning, but playoffs. Ahhh to be young and hopeful.

Also interesting to see and hear all the names that you never hear anymore.

If only I was actually there. *sigh*

The games I listed I attended, so that's why they are my "most memorable sports events".

Obviously the list would be much longer if I were to include ALL events that I've watched, including the Luv Ya Blue days.

What happened to that excitement from the Texans fans? Only time I even saw anything close to that last year was the win over the Colts. And that was sweet. I hope this is an exciting year...

Man, if all we've got to live for are memories we are in sad shape. I mean, we're at the bottom tier in the preseason power polls. We're in our fifth year (or is it sixth, can't remember) and we have had nothing but losing seasons. I am hoping that we make the playoffs before our tenth season. I really don't care what happened back in 2002, or what kind of food they're serving at the stadium. All I care about are the numbers in the win column this season. All I can say about the Texans record after five seasons (24-56, I believe) is WTF. But I still say GO TEXANS!:texflag:
