Hey guys, I'm trying to think of what to add to the list of terms I've been keeping since 2005 and would like suggestions if any of you care to make any. Here's what I have at the moment:

"Smithiak" A Texans fan abbreviation used to refer to both GM Rick Smith and Head Coach Gary Kubiak at the same time. It is typically used when speaking of an accomplishment or action taken by the two who are considered inseperable and equally responsible for all Texans post-2005 success but is sometimes used in the form of a criticism. This is usually done by one who does not believe in "The Trinity". Credited to ObsiWan

"The Trinity" The Texans fan term for the current brain trust of the Houston Texans which draws a parallel between the Owner, GM, and Head Coach with the Christian religons Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In Texans speak "The Trinity" goes like this: Kubiak walks among us and is our example of how to play football. Smith is the force that enables us to play football the way Kubiak shows us to. McNair is the creator and has orchestrated everything that has and will happen. Credited to dalemurphy.

"The C&C Losing Factory" - refers to the 2001-2005 regime of General Manager Charlie Casserly and Head Coach Dom Capers who combined to bring football fans in Houston a 4 year record of futility that came to a depressing 18-46 total. They capped their illustrious careers in Houston with a 2-14 work of art that eventually led to their demise (much to the relief of those Houston Texans fans who managed to survive their reign). Credited to Texan Bill.

"Ocho Stinko" - A play on Chad Johnson's nickname (He wears number 85 and is known as "Ocho Cinco") used to describe former Texans QB David Carr. While with the Texans Carr wore number 8 and arguably stunk as bad as any first overall draft pick QB in the history of the game. He is also referred to as "Major Mittens", "HWSNBN", "HWWNBN", and "The guy in the fetal position". Credited to many.

"Caught The Shoe" or "Catching The Shoe" is a term that refers to poor tackling and makes reference to the weak attempt by Matt Stevens to tackle Ricky Williams in the Texans 2003 season opener at Miami. In that game an obviously overmatched Stevens attempted to stop Ricky Williams by grabbing his foot and came away with only a shoe which he then promptly threw down on the ground (some say he threw it at Williams). This perfect picture of futility has been enshrined as a phrase in the Texans fan dictionary. Usage would be as follows; "Man, Morlon Greenwood has been getting beat like a puppy today. He's done nothing but catch the shoe since the game started!" Credited to many

"P-Burnt" refers to exceptionally poor CB play by a Texans player. To get "P-burnt" is to be beaten so bad in pass coverage that you force Texans fans to remember Phillip Buchanon and his 2005 season as a Texan. Getting "P-Burnt" is mathematically 23.9 times worse than just getting "burnt" in coverage and this formula has been independently verified by The European Fecal Standards & Measurements Board in Zurich Switzerland. Credited to BigWig.

"The Boselli Effect" or simply "TBE" is used to describe a common disturbance/distortion of reality around a Texans player when an injury of seemingly trivial or minor status keeps that player out of action for an extended period of time. This is the result of the Texans penchant for lying about the injury status of players regardless of whether there is anything to be gained by doing so. It refers to the three year on-again, off-again Texans career of Tony Boselli who was the first player selected by the Texans in their expansion draft. Tony Boselli was coming off of what was described as a relatively common shoulder surgery and was expected to play in the 2002 season. Throughout that season Boselli's "return" was speculated upon week after week until he was finally placed on injured reserve so that he could be ready and 100% for the 2003 season. This pattern repeated the next year and finally concluded at the start of the 2004 season when Tony Boselli retired from football just a week after he finally began to practice for the team. Since that time similar injury situations have come about surrounding running backs Domanick Davis and most recently Ahman Green. In 2007 when WR Andre Johnson was injured much speculation among Texans fans concerned his mysterious knee injury that was first reported as being "fortunately not so bad" yet kept him out for many weeks. Any time a Texans player is injured there is the possibility that Texans fans may see "TBE" in action. Andre Johnson escaped TBE and returned to play for the team at his usual high level. This makes him the only Texans player to ever do so. Credited to many.

"The Texans Side-Step" or "Doing the Texans Side Step" is another term for "The Boselli Effect" and refers to the Texans front office and coaching staff and their consistent refusal to be forthcoming on the injury status of a Texans player, even when such information would be of no use to an upcoming opponent. Since the first days of the franchise fans have noted that when it comes to information on injured players the Texans are only lying when you can see their lips move. When a player is injured and his status changes inexplicably over the course of several weeks it could be said that "The Texans are doing the Side-Step on that guy. We may never find out what's really going on with his knee." Credited to CloakNNNdagger

"The Rosencopter" is a description that makes reference to the flying leap and subsequent spin that perennial backup Sage Rosenfels did in the final four minutes of the Texans home opener in 2008 against the Indianapolis Colts. The play resulted in a fumble which the Colts then recovered and ran back for a touchdown. What followed was one of the worst meltdowns by any player in NFL history as Rosenfels fumbled on the very next offensive play, then threw an interception to wipe out any chance the Texans might have of salvaging the win. The phrase can be used to refer to a player spinning around following a hit or to point out the stupidity of a particular players actions.

"Pulling an Asserly" is the chosen term applied when an NFL executive of the GM variety agrees to pay a player far more money than he's worth for no apparent reason, following a major injury with a questionable outlook for recovery, or in the twilight of his career. Credit to many

"Checking the Menu" or "Choosing a Grand Slam" refers to the way Gary Kubiak routinely appears to bury his head in the laminated "Denny's menu" sized folding card he carries around with him on the sideline during games. When something important happens on the field and Gary either appears to miss it entirely or miss its significance he is said to have been "Checking the Menu". Credited to many.

"Stagger Gary" is a term that refers to the idiotic halfback pass called by Gary Kubiak in the 2009 Houston at Jacksonville game. Trailing the Jaguars in the second half the Texans moved the ball easily into the red zone. On first down for no apparent reason Gary decided to Check the Menu and get clever. He used his secret weapon and "bromance" partner Chris Brown to attempt a halfback pass which was ineptly thrown and intercepted. This ended the Texans scoring threat and effectively lost the game for Houston. The name refers to the "Stagger Lee" play called by Houston Oilers coach Jerry Glanville in a playoff game in Denver during the late 1980's. credited to many.

"Soapers" or "Pink Soapers" refers to texanstalk.com board members who no longer believe in the ability of Gary Kubiak to improve the team beyond a roughly .500 (give or take a game) record. The soap avatar comes from the movie Fight Club and originated during the final year of "The C&C Losing Factory" as the "Fire Capers Club". The first rule of the Fire Capers Club was that we do not talk about Fire Capers Club. This was said tongue-in-cheek as a way to mock the "Everything is fine, there is no need to panic" attitude of the Texans organization as the Casserly/Capers regime came to an end. With the firing of Dom Capers the Fire Capers Club became dormant (With the strange exception of a poster named "IBAR Harry" who continued to sport a pink soap avatar demanding that Dom Capers be fired for two more years until he was banned for excessive asshattery and a never ending bromance with "Ocho Stinko"). During the 2009 season as the Texans again started slow and appeared to be having trouble concentrating on important things like PLAYING FOOTBALL the pink soap avatar reappeared in the form of a "Fire Kubiak Club" logo. This sparked a healthy debate (minor flame war) about the merits of firing Gary Kubiak and hiring one of the many out of work head coaches who happened to own a Super Bowl ring at the time. The Fire Kubiak Club again went dormant at the end of the 2009 season when Bob McNair declared that Gary Kubiak would return in 2010 to coach the team again. They have sworn to return should Kubiak fail to achieve another winning season and a playoff berth however

We need one for:

"The Texans Cushion" (or something like this)
The cushion refers to the space given between Texans DBs and opposing WRs. On 3rd down, the cushion must be equal to or greater than the distance needed by the opposing team to secure a 3rd down. The cushion arose from the incompetency of many Texans defensive backs who were afraid of being labeled "P-Burnt." It was made famous by DeMarcus Faggins (Petey) who managed to get both P-Burnt and sport the cushion at the same time. Shockingly, the Texans Cushion has permeated defensive philosphys of multiple defensive coordinators and has continued in spite of rotating defensive backs and coaches.

"They need time to gel"
This turn of phrase was made popular during the David Carr (Aka Ocho Stinko, see above) era in which he was frequently sacked. David Carrs inability to remain upright in the pocket was attributed to a porous offensive line that allowed even marginal defenders the chance to hit our "franchise" quarterback. As such, frequent tweaks and changes were made to the lineup, which usually resulted in disappointing results. Optimists would respond to the criticism by claiming "They need time to gel"--a Texans fan favorite--which implied that with a few more weeks of suckage, the play would soon start to improve. Sadly, we never saw proof of this. Since that time, the phrase "time to gel" has been used as an excuse for any change or injury this team faces. The improved play of our OL as soon as we changed quarterbacks revealed the futility of this philosophy.
Ex: Change of defense leading to poor defensive play? They need to time gel.

Great thread, Hervoyel. It'd be great if you could edit the post everytime you consider there's a viable addition to the glossary. I once saw someone refer to Matt Schaub as Matt Schlub this season. Lol. How's that working out there? He's #1 in a couple positive passing categories. It's still a good name. He looks like a schlub anyway.

Brown out. A combination of specific players on one team that are given an opportunity to win games in key moments but instead consistently fail all season resulting in missing the playoffs.

"Brown Out" The loss of a game due to the failure of one particular player who everyone knew would screw things up but who Gary Kubiak has complete and unwavering faith in regardless of their performance on the field or the availability of better (or any) alternatives. Usage: "We won 9 games in 2009 but it would have been 10 or 11 if we hadn't had a few Brown Outs.

"Petey"- as an homage to Demarcus Petey Faggins, refers to a CB that has angered the fanbase with apparent poor cover skills.


A "Petey" is any player pushed into a starting role while lacking the necessary skills to actually carry out said role. It is most often used to describe a defensive back. This is in honor of Demarcus "Petey" Faggins who was an original Texan and perfectly adequate nickel cornerback but who instead was pressed into service during his 7 years here as a starter a remarkable 36 times for lack of a better option. At no point in his career was Petey Faggins ever confused with a legitimate starting NFL cornerback but this did not stop two entirely different sets of coaches from trotting him out time and time again anyway. "Petey" which was also the name of the dog from The Little Rascals film series (being intensely faithful and impossible to get rid of) never quit trying to his credit but his failures did not endear him to the Texans faithful. Usage: A team with poor corners or using players signed out of desperation due to injury can be said to be "Playing a couple of Peteys".

Brown Out-Works for me, it refers to Chris/Kris Browns ability to

A. turn the ball over/miss FG's at the most inopportune time. there costing the Texans important games/playoff opportunities.

B. Settlers- Kubes settled for a long FG by K.Brown with the game on the line. Or We're improving because this years 8-8 is better than last years 8-8. We've made great strides to improve to 9-7 over last years 8-8 (even though this years 9-7 was against an easy schedule) would be another example of settling. If you're a Texan fan.

C. Kubes inabiliy to look at FG's with the gamon the line? Could you stand to look at a K.Brown FG attemt with the game on the line?

Not sure that this is a Texans-only reference, but a good rule-of-thumb one anyway...

ESPiN - References the Connecticut-based 4-letter network that has morphed into little more than a hype factory. It came to prominence in Texans lore when the Texans elected to pick a certain Defensive End from NC State over the once-in-a-lifetime RB talent from a much more glorified program at USC. If that weren't enough, the Texans were also lambasted for passing (pun-intended) on the greatest home-state talent at QB the world had ever known. (see additional references to VY-effect)

"Getting D-Robbed" - the act making off with millions of dollars after a player has received the franchise tag. Said player is percieved to be an integral part of the team to include but no limited to "lockeroom leadership" and "fan favorite". The player then proceeds to pull a 180 and go in the tank while smiling all the way to the bank. Typical variations include coming off a dehibilitating injury from and/or holding out of training camp and preason after the tag is applied.

"Play 30" - A play on the NFL's campaign "Play 60" to encourage children to be active, get excercise and encourage a healthy lifestyle. Play 30 is a reference to the Texan uncanny ability to consistenly perform great for one half of a football game and completely disappear the other half. There is not set order in which the halves must occur. The team can come out flat and then bounce back or come out hot and blow the game. Most popular way to blow the game to date is by using the aforementioned "Brown Out". See also "learning how to finish".

This term goes back in Houston football history, but the "Jack Pardee look" - where he was wearing a set of unplugged headphones crooked on the side of his head because the owner wanted him to look like a head coach - has been sported in various forms by Dom Capers (mouth agape), Rudy T (suit disheveled), and Larry Dierker (sunflower seed stuck on lip) over the years.

Some fans reported seeing the look in Kubiak's eyes after the four game losing skid at the hands of our division rivals this season, but a slap on the ass by Rick Smith seemed to have pulled him out of the daze...for now.

---------------

Texan Bill also came up with an updated variation of the infamous "Stagger Lee" play going back to Glanville. I can't recall the exact term - maybe "halfback Stagger" - to describe the boneheaded halfback pass during the Jags game this season.


****edit: I see you already have it - the "Stagger Gary" :thumbup

We also have "Slug Adams" - i.e. "The Emperor", "bastard", "rug" - as well as a bunch of other non-family friendly descriptions for the ICOU king.

It's a gradual process. Every year we have certain things happen that get "enshrined" in our collective psyche. Every year a few sayings get coined. Some are epic and stick, others don't make it. I try to grab a couple every season and add them to the list. Someday I'll publish a coffee table book or something. I'll work on some of these tonight when I get home from work. Good stuff guys.

Podium tapping: Symbolic gesture in which Gary Kubiak tries to tap the podium at a press conference, perhaps in an attempt to summon the Podium Gods for an answer as to why "the kids" just didn't close out another close game.

JoeTexan: Clinical expert in the nuances of dropping soap and what happens afterwards.

FOK'er: Similar to the derogatory curse word, yet it stands for Friend Of Kubiak, which is how you get a job as a coach or assistant for the Texans.

Nigerian Daydream: Describes Amobi Okoye, who is not nearly as fearsome or powerful as the Nigerian Nightmare.

There's at least two of my entries (above) that should have ben rep'd by you guys by now.

I'm a little miffed about it, actually. So let's pick up the pace and send me my rep. POSITIVE rep, you jokers.

"Execute" - A favorite word of Dom Capers and a word that still makes Texans fans cringe to this day. This word may be applied, subisituted, or used in lieu of any other word in any spot of any sentence as long as it is perceived as a meaningless excuse.

Herv. Here is the definition of settlers as defined by Breaze in response to a chronicle article a few weeks back.

If we get knocked out of the playoffs next week the Pat's are toast. That's when Kubes gets serious...history approved. Start slow, finish strong... consistently inconsistent; Jekyll & Hyde. If Kubes gets his way and stays, we could be staring at Groundhog's Day. Yes this is hating as some of you labeling types like to point out, but its hating to lose...hating to underachieve, hating more of the same while talent rots on the vine. Kind of true fan'ish don't you think? Why get so wrapped up in labels? Its ok for a true fan to demand more given the talent. Maybe we should add new label to the so called true fan..."settlers". The passive types that enjoy getting lunch money taken from them every year, living in the land of what if's, are incapable of seeing what's in front of them, and who can't accept things for what they are... bottom line, we are all fans so we are all..."gulp", the same. Now flip this season and hire some "proven" winners McNair...no more experiments, no more excuses, its time to take the big leap before its too late...

"Loose" "Loosers" - Words repeatedly typed on message boards and blogs used to describe the Texans, their players and their fans. Used more during the Capers era than now. By context, meant to reflect more losses than wins, or someone who loses more than they win. As it relates to fans, somehow suggests that those who root for teams that lose take on the characteristics of the team that lost, even though they do not go on the field or have much to do with what happens there.

Term tends to reflect negatively on the person using it as it suggests that they are uneducated and oft impolite boobs.

"Matt Lionheart" or various derivatives of same. - Quarterback that some Texan fans wish they drafted in 2006. Also can be used to refer to a fan who considers themselves an expert on the draft, knows exactly what players they have to have on their team, but can't even spell the guy's name.

"It" The special something that allows a player to win, even if they are sitting on the bench for most of the season for being emotionally unstable, unprofessional and lazy.

"Cushhawk" The haircut that Brian Cushing got from his teammates that he was good with because it help make him one of the guys. He kept it because he was playing like a badass, and well, it's not as hot as long hair.

"A Haircut" (1) An NFL team accomplishing something totally basic and making a big deal about it. Related to "Here's a Cookie!" (2) Making a big deal stupid bet to cut your hair if your team wins two games in a row, but not really cutting much off because your wife likes it, and you are so smitten about her that you almost quit football in college because you missed her.

"It's on me." What Kubiak says after losses. Fans make a big deal about it, and the players like that he keeps his issues with them inside the organization. The coach speak words that replaces Capers' "execute."

"The Peyton" He is a witch. The Colts can put all sorts of garbage players around him and he continues to win and never gets hurt enough to be pulled out of games. He eats human hearts of opposing fans to stay on the field. Even from the bench, he can make quirky things happen on the field that result in Colts victories, like turning Ryan Moats into a newt. Moats got better. It was only for an instant at the goal line, and quick enough that it didn't show up in slo-mo.

"Dayned" - when you're injured by a fellow teamate who sucks.

I prefer DISDAYNED for a player hurt by his own team mate, as in he just got Disdayned.

Also I propose, "JACOBY", as in "He pulled a Jacoby".

Jacoby (verb): When one preforms an amazing feat followed by a massive blunder.

01-09-2010, 06:21 PM
Demoated: When one is placed below an inferior coworker for a suspicious or thru the use of poor logic. As in Ryan was "demoated" behind Chris, because Chris is better at......"

Origins: This is in reference to the fact that Ryan Moats a RB for the Houston Texans of the National Football League, who was a second stringer behind another Houston Texans RB. The logic used was that Chris Brown was a better "blocker". This is strange because it implies that Mr. Brown was able to both run the ball or block. When in fact Mr. Brown could only block, while Mr. Moats could run, and at least stand in front of the opposing team. Following the logic of the Houston Texans, one would wonder why they wouldn't have Moats run the ball, and on passing downs bring in an Offensive Lineman, because if all Mr. Brown could do was block, why not have a blocking specialist in the game.

Big Lou
01-09-2010, 06:25 PM
2nd Down Punt: A strategy developed by the Houston Texans an American Football Team in the National Football League. This was a strategy used thru out the 2009 season in which rather than attempting move the ball for 10 yards to convert a first down by running the ball, the RB would simply "fumble" the ball on second down in order to change pocession rather than waiting until the 4th down to punt the ball which is more traditional practice in American Football.

Here are a couple recurring nicknames:

"Open Daniels"

and, my favorite:

"Kevins Walter".... alluding to how often people call him Kevin Walters

Print it!

A "Petey" is any player pushed into a starting role while lacking the necessary skills to actually carry out said role. It is most often used to describe a defensive back. This is in honor of Demarcus "Petey" Faggins who was an original Texan and perfectly adequate nickel cornerback but who instead was pressed into service during his 7 years here as a starter a remarkable 36 times for lack of a better option. At no point in his career was Petey Faggins ever confused with a legitimate starting NFL cornerback but this did not stop two entirely different sets of coaches from trotting him out time and time again anyway. "Petey" which was also the name of the dog from The Little Rascals film series (being intensely faithful and impossible to get rid of) never quit trying to his credit but his failures did not endear him to the Texans faithful. Usage: A team with poor corners or using players signed out of desperation due to injury can be said to be "Playing a couple of Peteys".

This is already printed right?


"Tacks" - as their logo looks like a thumbtack.

"Flaming Meatballs" - as their logo also looks like a meatball with a flame coming off of it.synonym for this is important too as there are many versions of this. "Flaming Thumbtacks" is certainly one of them as well as

"Play 30" - A play on the NFL's campaign "Play 60" to encourage children to be active, get excercise and encourage a healthy lifestyle. Play 30 is a reference to the Texan uncanny ability to consistenly perform great for one half of a football game and completely disappear the other half. There is not set order in which the halves must occur. The team can come out flat and then bounce back or come out hot and blow the game. Most popular way to blow the game to date is by using the aforementioned "Brown Out". See also "learning how to finish".

This is brilliant! Print it!

Going Fetal. Synonym for sure

Kids : \kidz\ Plural noun

1: Official coaching reference for the team members, even though some of them are nearly his own age.
This needs a better definition but it's definitely dictionary worthy. Something like - the act of perpetually demoralizing your players by constantly referring to them as children despite their age and professional status is to: "kidz" someone.. or something...

Bennie Joppru - noun, verb; a player that will never be healthy enough to see the practice field....also look at Antuan Molden.
I belive that is just a "Joppru"

"It" The special something that allows a player to win, even if they are sitting on the bench for most of the season for being emotionally unstable, unprofessional and lazy.
you forgot "...even though most of those wins could actually be attributed to the efforts of a 2000-yd rusher and a defense that had key pieces return to the starting lineup from injury. Also, "It" seems to completely disappear in the presense of legitimate teams like the Colts or Chargers. Lastly, I think, if used accurately and honestly, there may be an "S" and an "H" missing from the term. ...but that could just be me.

"Cushhawk" The haircut that Brian Cushing got from his teammates that he was good with because it help make him one of the guys. He kept it because he was playing like a badass, and well, it's not as hot as long hair.

"The Peyton" He is a witch. The Colts can put all sorts of garbage players around him and he continues to win and never gets hurt enough to be pulled out of games.

Hey guys, I'm trying to think of what to add to the list of terms I've been keeping since 2005 and would like suggestions if any of you care to make any. Here's what I have at the moment:

"Soapers" or "Pink Soapers" refers to texanstalk.com board members who no longer believe in the ability of Gary Kubiak to improve the team beyond a roughly .500 (give or take a game) record. The soap avatar comes from the movie Fight Club and originated during the final year of "The C&C Losing Factory" as the "Fire Capers Club". The first rule of the Fire Capers Club was that we do not talk about Fire Capers Club. This was said tongue-in-cheek as a way to mock the "Everything is fine, there is no need to panic" attitude of the Texans organization as the Casserly/Capers regime came to an end. With the firing of Dom Capers the Fire Capers Club became dormant (With the strange exception of a poster named "IBAR Harry" who continued to sport a pink soap avatar demanding that Dom Capers be fired for two more years until he was banned for excessive asshattery and a never ending bromance with "Ocho Stinko"). During the 2009 season as the Texans again started slow and appeared to be having trouble concentrating on important things like PLAYING FOOTBALL the pink soap avatar reappeared in the form of a "Fire Kubiak Club" logo. This sparked a healthy debate (minor flame war) about the merits of firing Gary Kubiak and hiring one of the many out of work head coaches who happened to own a Super Bowl ring at the time. The Fire Kubiak Club again went dormant at the end of the 2009 season when Bob McNair declared that Gary Kubiak would return in 2010 to coach the team again. They have sworn to return should Kubiak fail to achieve another winning season and a playoff berth however

You left out the "Fire Richard Smith" soap era. I almost brandished the pink soap myself during that period.

Knee-jerk

1) adverb; Any action suggested or taken before the poster using the word deems the action necessary, even if said action is performed after appropriate analysis and evaluation has been performed.

2) adjective; A thought or idea against the status quo.

3) adjective; An opinion with a timing component that differs from the opinion of the user of the term.

Let us not overlook the "Ole" by Steve Slaton. It's not like one cannot help but notice a man the size of a small planet rumbling past you.

LOL. Slaton actually PUSHES Jenkins and helps propel him even faster.

As in "Here ya' go! Go get 'em! Wheeeee!!!!"

I've been thinking about something called "Pollardisms". He always has such great quotes and I think he could have a sub-glossary of his own.

Antonio Smith offers up some doosies too. Most recently in a twitter.com post:

Tell Wiz to put u at FB or TE when we play those 4 plays in pre season so I can monkey chock ur a** lmao. Hahahaaha

monkey chock: verb- meaning to.....

I'm sorry Cushing fans

but the nickname "The Beast" is taken

...and it belongs to this man:

I think that was Slaton just getting pulled in to the slip stream. Do you know what kind of turbulance a man of that size creats.

Kind of like when I drive my F-150 by a sheet of paper on the side of the road, it just gets sucked in behind my truck....

Had Jenkins sacked Matt, he should have been credited with 1.5 sacks for what he did to 55.

Guys,

I'm writing a parody piece about Bernard Pollard for Texans Bull Blog and I want to use "Pollardism" as a term and then reference it to the official Texans Talk Fan Dictionary.

Herv,

You're the keeper of the grail and I want you to sign off on an official definition of Pollardism before I use it in a published piece. But I want to get some approval from everyone else as well.

I'm thinking something like this:

Pollardism - adj. A descriptive explanation of how the member of an opposing team can expect to be dominated. Also, a saying or quote that can motivate a given person to run through a brick wall.


Let me know if you think this will fly. Feel free to adjust the wording or clean it up as you see fit.

Thanks!

limbo(b)

limbo(b) - a limbo like state, that is often defined by the Houston Texans. Limbo(b) is a delicate balance between failure and success, often for the personal gain of the controlling parties - first demonstrated by Bob McNair and Gary Kubiak, who through collusion and aggressive marketing campaigns managed to leave the Houston Texans in limbo(b) for 4 years before fans realized that their preseason optimism was severely misplaced, and the stadium was just as full as the ownership's wallet.

Blackout

1. Chemically induced period of amnesia that is indicative of substance dependence.
2. The future of Houston Texans home games.
3. Exception to #1: Intentionally drinking enough during a Texans game so that one can forget the outcome, usually a loss resulting from an unbelievable play or series of plays (see Reggie Wayne regarding nearly impossible circus catches).

Note: #3 differs from #1 in that #3 is indicative of unhealthy masochistic tendencies rather than a chemically-dependent lifestyle.

Cheap panty-hose

One of the two defensive schemes employed by the Texans where everything looks covered, but numerous runs are inevitable. Used on obvious run plays.

Dirty linen

One of the two defensive schemes employed by the Texans where the opponents will easily air it out. Used on passing plays.
