I saw this in a recent issue of Sports Illustrated, so I scanned it to share...

It's kinda' funny in a derogatory sort of way. Is this ad in all SI's around the country? Or did they do each team according to geographic location?

I think they made random numbers on purpose. They probably didn't want to make players look bad....just the sad sack franchise.

It honestly cracks me up every time I look at it. I just wish that I could get the picture without the Snickers ad. Frame it and put 2001-2010(?) under it. The picture really captures the first decade of this franchise in a way that one picture can say a thousand words.

As far as the Si picture:

I'll wrap it up tonight at home. I don't have the correct font or logo here.

So is our offensive lineman sacking our QB?

Sounds about right.

Herv, wish I had thought of it earlier, as I've got the big image on our website, as well. I resized it for this thread.

This was in my last SI copy last week. It in a way defines a lot of this franchise over the last 10 years. Ever notice that on Sports Center the Texans always seem to be the team in the background getting burned when they are showing highlights of some other team? This kind of goes along with that. Anyway, thought this was funny and I should share it. It's funny how the Texans got picked for this ad lol.

Imagine that meeting w/ the individuals who created this add.

"We need a team to put in our add, you know the one where we want to make it look like an offensive lineman is sacking his own qb, any suggestions?"

The Rosencopter incident would have been just as appropriate, they wouldn't have had to photo-shop that.
