It's here, boys and girls. The first time in a long time we've had a scrappy group of guys to throw our support behind.

Who the heck cares what we name our defense?!?!? Big deal.

CLUTCH CITY, though? Oh hell yeah, you know it's back in style.

We're about to clinch playoffs this Sunday (and with a Titans loss to the Saints).

Time to Clutch Up or shut up.

Resurrecting the old Clutch City spirits to wreak havoc upon our opponents.

This should be in the other thread, but in honor of the #1 defense they could adopt the name "Crunch City." Sorry, but Clutch City is taken.

Didn't they win a couple of Championships with that name? How's that negative connotation?

Speaking of Championships though... does anyone think we're a little premature wanting to name our defense? We haven't won a division championship yet much less a conference or league championship.

I always thought the term "Clutch City" as it related to the Rockets was because they were put into positions where they had to win games or their season was over.

Clutch City is a nickname given to the city of Houston, Texas after the Houston Rockets won two NBA Championships in 1994 and 1995. The name was given as a response to a front-page headline by The Houston Chronicle declaring Houston as "Choke City," It also refers to the clutch performance showed by the Rockets during their championship years.

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

The Rockets recovered from being two games down to the Phoenix Suns in the second round of the playoffs, to advance to the finals. Houston once again went down by three games to two to the New York Knicks, but they managed to win the last two games on their home court, and claim their first championship in franchise history.

I thought when they closed the city of Detroit, Houston took over as the largest producers of automobile "Clutch" parts. No?

With us being down to our third QB, and still winning and having a chance to clinch playoffs, I dont think it's too far out to suggest we can borrow some positive history from the only Houston pro team to have won a championship.

It's nostalgia (in my mind). We had Stros in the WS but got humiliated by getting swept in 4. So bringing back the only positive vibe we've had (Clutch City) doesn't have to be over analyzed.

Clutch City indicates preseverance and being clutch when it counts. Sounds like the 2011 Texans to me.

Yep, I agree.

I like where GP is coming from. Clutch City represents Houston. I just hope that the Texans "clutch moment" is NOT having to win against the Titans to get to the playoffs. My heart can't take that kind of clutch right now.

Plus I think Rudy T's quote: "Never Underestimate the Heart of a Champion" fits this bunch of guys rather appropriately.

in all fairness. I can't see how it can be Clutch city and refer to the Texans.. esp this time.Clutch city was the Rockets and they coming back time and time again in the playoffs to win the championship.. also 1st team to beat 4 50 win teams to get the crown..

that team was special.

I am not putting down the Texans.. it is they are taking it one game at a time and I know as fans we want to get excite.. hell I am excited.but.. .. Texans aren't in the playoffs yet and haven't made any noise either yet in the playoffs. right now..

Won't happen. It does not sound "homo". It sounds "gay". There's a difference however subtle it might be.

You go with what worked in the past. Clutch City is not reserved just for basketball. It's an attitude.

It's saying "Yeah, you think we CHOKE? Not this time. We are CLUTCH."

The paths the Rockets and Texans took are fairly similar, and the term (IMO) is dead-on. Don't have our best guys out there? No problem. On the road with a rookie 3rd string QB? No problem. Have to march down the field with no timeouts and score a TD to win the game on the last play? No problem.

If that's not "clutch" then I don't know what is.

Sometimes, you stop trying to be the most creative guy in the room (something all of you have tried your hand at, btw) and you just stop trying to re-invent the wheel. Go with what works. Clutch City is something everybody knows of, it's a Houston thing. It's ours. And so it transfers to the Texans.

Sometimes the answer was right under our nose the whole time. This is one of those times. Clutch City is Clutch City. Today, IMO, ought to cement it.
