I know the Colts game is the first game of the season and they are a division rival, but I know alot of us have friends that are cowboys fans and that you will argue over this game till it's over.

So I want to know whats more important to you that we beat our top division rival or that we beat the cowgirls for a win and bragging rights with our cowgirl buddy's.

Colts.

I dislike the Cowgirls as much as the next guy, but I just can't muster up enough giveadamn to care about that game like I care about division games. The South Oklahoma Cowgirls just aren't important enough to rank any higher than 7th on our schedule (6 division games).

If we actually beat the Colts week one, I'm so much less worried about the Cowboys it's not even funny. It's just really difficult to call a game against an NFC team as important as a divisional game against an opponent we beat as often as Richard Justice makes an intelligent remark about football.

OK, so here's the deal. Important to ME? To me it's the Cowboys. I hate the Cowturds.

Now, more important for the Texans, it's the Colts, and it will always be the Colts.

I feel exactly the same way. The fact that the Colts have perennially kicked the Texans' asses (1-15 all time record) and are a division rival makes that game much more important to me than having bragging rights over the Cowboys fans I know.

I concur.

My main reasoning for leaning towards the Cowboys is that everyone I know is a Cowboy fan and it's time to shut them up if only for 60 minutes.

I understand why everyone wants to beat the colts as far as what it would mean to the us in the division, but there are still 2 wild card berths to be had in the AFC if we don't beat them in our 1st game. If we beat the colts the 2nd time around & we sweep our other division opponents we are still in play for the division & the playoffs.

On the other hand, losing to the cowboys would mean not only another 6 year wait to be able to beat them again but also of hearing from these moronic cowboy fans about what the cow chips did to us the last time out....I'm willing to forgo 1 colts win to shut these dudes up for any length of time.

But on the other hand, it sure would be nice to BTHO Cowgirls and their fans.

Definitely the Colts. If you listen to Peyton's interviews, he NEVER
sleeps on ANY division rival, especially the Texans.

Let's face it. The Colts are in the Texans' heads. Last year, they
had their best chance of sweeping them. In game one, the
Texans scored over 20 unanswered points to lose. In game two,
the Texans score 17 unanswered to start the game, and ultimately
choke THAT game away, too.

If the Texans wanna get off the schnide, their balls are in
Indy. No way they take the next step in 2010, without
showing they belong on the same field with the Colts.

If the question were:

1) Beat the Cowboys, win the division (which is possible)
2) Beat the Colts, lose the division (which is possible as well)

I would still say beat the Colts. They've beat us 15 out of 16 times in our history, and we can't have that if we are to be respected in this league.

It hurts that if we lose to the Cowboys, it will be another 4 years before we play them again (they beat us 4 years ago, so that would be 8 years total of not beating them).

But I'll take that, before I take another whupp'n by the Colts. It doesn't matter if we lost by 3 or lost by 7, 15 out of 16 is a whupp'n.

The win that cements a playoff berth. But I think both the Colts and the Cowboys are important wins. Division games are something the Texans can't seem to find a way to win, so a win against a rival and division opponent is huge. And the cowboys would be a statement (well also the Colts, for sure) to the NFL that this team is different and can beat premier competition (and another rival). At this point the Colts and the Cowboys are considered the top teams based on preseason rankings, beating them BOTH would be huge for confidence. I guess if you pick one, you have to go with the division win, but I'd like to see them win both.

See, that's the thing, about the only respect we get from any of our division foes comes from the colts, which is why i don't have that same disdain towards them that i have for cowboy, titan or jags fans. We've had colts fans come to our board very respectful & say that we've got lots of talent &/or "we're close" & even some colts players have said that. There's just no blatant disrespect of us as a team like we get from obnoxious titan, jag or cowboy fans.


Do i want us to beat the colts? yes, but i realize that that's a well oiled machine over there as long as #18 is under center. Honestly, spliting with those dudes would satisfy me.

Losing to the Colts is unacceptable in 2010. Blowing a team out in the

So... let's say we lose to the Colts. What do you want to hear? Do you want everyone to start chanting that we need to dismantle our team and give up football? Do you want there to be a huge grassroots movement to fire Kubiak? Do you want the entire MB to go dead as everyone gives up?

The only responsible thing TO say is "We'll get 'em next time." Mathematically, we can lose every game in our division and still win our division. The team has to keep fighting and we should keep fighting right along side them. At least, that's the way I see it.

to SWEEP the NFC East, AFC West, AND beat the Ravens and Jets.
Possible, but HIGHLY unlikely.

My frustration is the fact we've been dealing with "theoretical", "hypothetical"
"anecdotal" notions of this team growing up and becoming a REAL
NFL contender for YEARS. I'll continue to watch every game, and I'll be the first
to admit they embarrassed my ass at work after the Week One debacle last year.

Being an admitted Texans fan has been HARD. When will we be able

My glasses are about as ROSEY as they come. Even I get upset, as I'm sure every Texans fan does, anytime we lose a winnable game (which there were 7 of last season).

It's understandable, when our fans come to this board, and share that anger, express their ideas, even demand Kubiak's head/job on a platter. Whatever.

Colts fans are pretty cool. They're even cool to the Patriots, who they probably view as peers.

Getting our butts kicked by the Colts the last 8 years, is probably the best thing this team has had happen to them.

Sooner or later, we'll be beating them on a regular basis, or at least we'll get to the point that they know their chances are 50/50. I only hope it happens before they fall. I want to beat the King, while he is still the King. I know the Pats have won more Super Bowls, but I've never thought they were as good, fundamentally, as the Colts. The Patriots beat you with scheme. The Colts beat you with badassery. You know what they are going to do every game, and you just can't stop them.

#1) Numero Uno, make sure you get this right.

I am not humiliated in the slightest about this team, or our record, or any game we've played (especially in the last 4 years). Not now, not ever.

#2) I used to enjoy your post, before you switched to the dark-side. They were pertinent, relevant, and revealed football knowledge. You have undoubtedly uncovered some important stats and information, before anyone else was talking about them.

I know you know football, and there is no way you can watch this team (I think) and not recognize the improvements this team has been making. We had a coach before, when you didn't see that. You couldn't, it wasn't there. WE had to fabricate things to feel good about.

Again, I know you've critiqued Kubiak on valid areas of weakness, but the improvement on the team is also because of him. It would have been nice, to have the one without the other, but those aren't the cards we were dealt.

Young coach, young team, young owner, young team & owner who didn't know how to do anything but lose.

The point is that losing isn't easy for any of us. You say that you don't want us to say "Well, we'll get 'em the next time" because you consider that being resigned to losing. You don't think that it breaks my freaking heart every time we lose? You don't think that I drop into a deep depression with each loss? That doesn't matter. I've got to keep fighting. I've got to keep on cheering my team.

Because there's nothing else I can do.

Great post, TPN. I actually screamed and flopped on the floor when Brown missed the field goal after Schaub led the team back down the field from the 15 with no time outs. A grown man and here I was acting like a 5-year-old.

But, as TPN says, what else am I supposed to do besides get back up and say "We'll get them next time!" Saying that doesn't mean that I am, or other fans are, writing off the Colts as 2 losses every year. It means that we are hopeful that the Texans will eventually find a way to beat the Colts. We say it because getting angry isn't going to change the outcome and because we like to stay optimistic. We say it because we believe it to be true and its something I will say after every loss to the Colts.

This isnt the most popular opinion but the question said "which win is more important to YOU.?"

My answer is the cowboys. I say this because weve played the colts 16 times and lost 15. We will continue to play them twice every year for the rest of our existence (probably). We have played the cowboys once and beat them. We only play them once every eight years (or is it four?). Not to mention that damn near EVERY one of my friends are friggin cowboy fans. We have always been second fiddle to the boys and Im tired of it. The first time we beat them, you could argue luck. Luck in the fact that we got lucky by winning with David Carr and lucky that they werent near as good that year as they normally are. This year is the highest "rated" Texans team in history. On the other hand, the cowboys are picked by many to go to the super bowl. Im not saying that the Colts game isnt important but if we split the series with them all of us would be fairly happy. Imagine if we beat the boys and we can now hold the distinction of being 2-0 against them for the next eight years.

I would be a happy guy. Sorry for the lengthy response but I figured an explanation was due here since I am obviously part of the minority here.

This isnt the most popular opinion but the question said "which win is more important to YOU.?"

My answer is the cowboys. I say this because weve played the colts 16 times and lost 15. We will continue to play them twice every year for the rest of our existence (probably). We have played the cowboys once and beat them. We only play them once every eight years (or is it four?). Not to mention that damn near EVERY one of my friends are friggin cowboy fans. We have always been second fiddle to the boys and Im tired of it. The first time we beat them, you could argue luck. Luck in the fact that we got lucky by winning with David Carr and lucky that they werent near as good that year as they normally are. This year is the highest "rated" Texans team in history. On the other hand, the cowboys are picked by many to go to the super bowl. Im not saying that the Colts game isnt important but if we split the series with them all of us would be fairly happy. Imagine if we beat the boys and we can now hold the distinction of being 2-0 against them for the next eight years.

I would be a happy guy. Sorry for the lengthy response but I figured an explanation was due here since I am obviously part of the minority here.

The Texans/Cowboys have played twice in the regular season. The Texans won at Reliant; the Cowboys won at Texas Stadium.

We played them in Dallas 4 years ago. 4 years before that, we beat them here in Houston.

It would be 2-1 against the Cowboys for the next 4 years.

In an earlier post, I mentioned it would be eight years, of not beating them, but that is because they won the last time.

Other than that, I like your answer.

So its every four years then. That makes it even more important ----> the all important rubber match.

Well I'm a Cowboys fan so I'd rather they win division games..both teams BTW so I'd have to say it's more important to beat the Colts but....

you should check out johnnyroadtrip.com

they have schedules for all teams thru the 2017 year..it's interesting to go there and see what divisions play each other.

OK, so here's the deal. Important to ME? To me it's the Cowboys. I hate the Cowturds.

Now, more important for the Texans, it's the Colts, and it will always be the Colts.

I know the difference here, I'm just saying..........

...but that is a very important distinction.

I feel ya'll TK and Pencil Neck.

I'm sure you didn't tell people how great the Texans were gonna
be on Week One, how they'd BETTER watch the game, how
CBS put it as it's #1 GAME OF THE WEEK.

Then....(I laugh here to keep my cool)...

This team you told EVERYONE to watch puts in THAT performance.
That's really the crux of my rants.

Don't worry guys. If this team is the one Bernard Pollard is describing,
I'll be right here posting my custom GIF's on enemy messageboards
and cheering like everyone else.

I just don't need to see the Week One Debacle again.

Right, TO went off and it was 34-6 Dallas in 2006. 4 years earlier was he 19-10 game.

Being a Cowboy fan I'd rather they beat the Colts. I also think beating division rivals earns playoff games. It should be first and foremost.

Colts, no doubt. Win your division games, win your division. That's the most important thing.

Exactly

Why are you sure that I didn't do that? I was telling everybody that we were going to dominate the Jets last year. Rookie coach, rookie QB, I was talking smack to all my friends around the country.

And then... pfffft.

I'm in a league with two Raiders, a Charger, a Jaguar, a Redskin, a Viking, and a few non-committeds. My only consolation was that at least I sounded less delusional than the Raiders. And of course, I live in Cowboy-land surrounded by Cowboy fans and after that game, I was walking around in Texans gear getting nothing but "Dude, your team sucks, why don't you switch to a real team."

You're not the only one who felt pain when we got pantsed by the Jets.

The only consolation I had when we got pantsed by the Steelers two years ago was that at least I was in Italy with food poisoning so sick that the whole thing was just one painful blur.

I'm telling everyone we're going to win the Super Bowl.

I told all my friends, & everyone I know even remotely interested in football, they should buy their season tickets now, because once this train gets rolling, it isn't going to stop, for a long, long time. You may not be able to buy season tickets, after this year.

I got mine, 50 yard line, in GridIron country.

Colts, because we need to start winning in the division and you have to beat the best to be in the playoffs.

Besides, win that one and we could always get a rematch against the Cowboys in February.

It's both.

The Colts have owned us in the past. The last couple of years, we have gotten closer to beating them. An opening day win against the Colts would do wonders for the fans and the season.

If we were in another state, we would care less about the Cowgirls. but there are way too many Dallas fans in Houston for my liking. I see way too many Dallas stickers on cars and trucks. Have to many of their obnoxious, arrogant fans that we have to listen to every year. Would really be nice to shut them down for a while.

We seem to finish each year strong, this is the year we need to start strong.If we are going to be a playoff team, these are the teams we have to beat. Both games are in our house. We need to win both.

Do you think beating the Cowboys would change that?

I think if we can become a consistent winner, add a couple of Super Bowls to our resume, fans will switch.

Kinda like you never saw a Patriots fan, until they started winning Super Bowls (tuck rule or no).
