Anyone watching the Gameday Highlights show? They literally show about 40 seconds of the game then talk about how far we can go in the playoffs. Of course Dukes and Waddle say "not past the first round", will lose to the Steelers.

What else do we have to do!?

Waited through 20 minutes of highlights for them to get to our game and they showed 2 plays and one poll where they said we couldn't beat the steelers. Horse sh*t.

Being from Toronto, we've always got this treatment with the Raptors franchise. The only time we changed things was when we actually got to the playoffs and beat the Knicks in the first round back in the Vince Carter days. We then had the most media attention out of any of the second round teams when we went against Iverson's Sixers.

When teams dwindle down, you force them to pay attention to you, and that's what the Texans will do come February.

The Steelers won't be playing Htown in the first round. The Steelers will end up with the fifth seed and will likely play Denver.

This is why I didn't cry when we won the game today.

Like I said in the other thread: EFF THEM. Eff 'em all.

I knew we wouldn't get the respect. Why? Because they have their story, and the story is that they didn't pick us to win this season and they have a vested interest in making sure that they shade their coverage and can't be called out on their turnaround now that we clinched.

Jamie Dukes is the biggest POS on TV, period. He is like the store manager in the movie Elf. Prancing around acting like he's the **** of the walk, unaware of what's going on around him, and Buddy The Elf (The Texans) comes in and shows him up.

Eff that guy. At least Adam Schein of FoxSports came back around and started acknowledging that he has faith in us and likes our chances. He dipped a bit this off-season, due to being disappointed in us the past few years, but he jumped back aboard the Texans Express before today happened.

The others? Eff them. Sharpe on CBS likes us. He said Ravens and Texans best two AFC teams, and that Steelers and Pats are 3rd and 4th behind us.

Unless the Steelers can pick up a game on the Ravens in the next three weeks.

The Texans are almost certainly the #3 seed at minimum. If the Texans wind up as only the #3 seed, they get the lowest seed in the first round -- right now, that would be the Jets.

In Reliant. And let's see Sanchez play against our defense NOW.

He would need a meteor to strike Reliant in order to get out of being on his ass all day long. Funny how things come around, isn't it? He and Rex dancing all around the field that day...only to come back here in a playoff game against the best defense (something Rex is known for) in the league.

Reliant will be deafening for the Jets all day. It will be epic.

But I'm holding out for a 1st round bye. Still got three weeks of games to get some rest AND home field in round 2. That's the goal.

True -- but we don't even know that Houston will even play in the first round. So it would still be possible for their first opponent to be Pittsburgh -- but only if they get a first round bye, not if they take the #3 seed.

3) Last month's ESPN The Magazine had a cover story on the Texans. They spent an entire day with the team, and profiled the Texans-Steelers game. They dedicated something like 30 or so pages to the Texans.


Just because the immediate media reaction isn't to stop all the presses and praise the Texans great win doesn't mean we're not liked or respected nationally. And, even if we aren't, so what?

Everyone here does realise that when we beat the undefeated Packers in the Superbowl, it'll be remembered just like the Pats-Giants Superbowl.

You know that one that the Patriots lost?

Whereas more recently the Saints and Packers have won superbowls, that year the Patriots lost one.

But who cares really, the Texans are great to watch at the moment and just like Green Bay last year, they will improve by default next season when all those stars are back in the lineup, not to mention the number of others who are on the field but really banged up.

I will tell her that. She gets a lot of flack from the basement Jethro's who troll the ESPN comments. A lot of people don't think a woman can have opinions about sports, unfortunately.

I just sent her a text suggesting she write a column about Wade Phillips and how he should be considered for coach of the year, and not merely coordinator of the year. I doubt if she'll bite on that one, though.

Yep. I agree on this.

We were the 4th or 5th story on espn's website. "Texans Clinch Division." Had a clip of the highlights of the game. Then you have a chance to click on another link that opens another story, called "Rapid Reaction" that talks more about it.

The NFLN guys are trying to act like they drive or define the flow of NFL news now. They've actually surpassed ESPN in being consumed with their own bias or their own take on what is hip and what is not, etc. Dukes has become the worst at it, IMO.

Then the commissioner would decide football is old news and the league would end, we would get stiffed one way our the other :whip:

Ok, apparently there is a CLASSY group of NFLN guys and there is a SNOTTY group of NFLN guys who envy the CLASSY guys.

Because I just watched Eisen, Deion, and Mooch go ULTRA CLASSY for the Texans. Nothing but the highest praise for the Texans. At the end of the highlights, Mooch yells out "Way to go KUBES!"

Showed mama hugging daddy, and they ALL thought that was superb stuff right there. Every guy on that panel said "Congratulations to the Texans." They couldn't stop saying nice things about us.

Nice, nice, nice stuff from the main guys. They showed Yates in a press conference type interview (he's wearing his suit, tie, and Division Champs cap!), then they even had McNair wearing one and interviewed McNair who said, "I hear all this talk about other coaches being considered for COTY. What about Gary Kubiak? We've won our last three games with three different QBs, and no mention of Gary Kubiak for coach of the year???" WOW!

Dukes and his squad of haters are trying to be edgy, IMO. Trying to be smarter than the rest of the world on this deal. Just my 2 cents.

A talking head picks against a guy, week after week, and he can't stop betting against the guy because it admits an agenda or lack of objective analysis.

It's frustrating to see a sports commentator actively UNHAPPY that a team or player accomplishes something positive, such as winning a divisional title for the first time in its history.

It's classless, not merely "Jamie Dukes sucks, blah blah blah" It's beyond that. It's sad to see a guy like Dukes harbor some sort of weird hate against this team. Eisen, Deion (who has had his fair share of criticism of the Texans) and Mooch all had positive things to say, but Dukes goes polar opposite and actively tries to disrespect the achievement.

To me, it's fair for a sports fan to see that and think it's bizarre behavior. Because it is a little awkward, frankly.

Start with post #1 and go down the list in this thread. Make a little internal list of people who appear to have sand in their vaginas over this perceived lack disrespect. No need to name them, it's about numbers not opinions.

Now, got your number?

The closer it is to "76" (the post above mine as I type this) the more successful these people disrespecting the Texans are. They feed on attention. You're giving it to them. Why do you care what they think?

The thing that annoys me about NFLN isn't the lack of coverage; it's the tease.

The Texans are always 1/2 down the lineup on the left hand side of the screen. It's like the highlights are sitting there taunting me, but they just keep getting bumped back as one game after another jumps them. Then they finally reach the next highlight up and BAM commercial. Then they come back and the Texans are 1/2 up the screen again.

You must remember these are the same FOOLS that dropped 20 years on the Longhorn Network, one of the stupidest moves ever for any network.

I don't watch them anymore. And no, I really don't care about the LHN comment and who it might tick off. It was, is and always will be an utterly stupid move.

3) Last month's ESPN The Magazine had a cover story on the Texans. They spent an entire day with the team, and profiled the Texans-Steelers game. They dedicated something like 30 or so pages to the Texans.


Just because the immediate media reaction isn't to stop all the presses and praise the Texans great win doesn't mean we're not liked or respected nationally. And, even if we aren't, so what?

The celebration of clinching a playoff spot is big news here because it hasn't happened to a pro football team in almost 20 years, but don't expect that to be headline grabbing in the national media. We are the best team in a very weak division so it makes sense that we would clinch a spot early. Not a surprise. It has been expected to happen for weeks.

Jemele Hill is terrific. Not hating on her.

I'm talking about the types who don't seem to get this team yet - and ESPN has a large number of those. I still will never get off the point that UTESPN threw down 20 years for the Longhorn Network. I get that there are a lot of UT alums in this world but this is just the kind of thing both of those parties would do. Money grab until they own it all. ESPN also doesn't seem to understand that UT is not TEXAS. They are not one in the same.

Certainly there are some good national pundits i respect, Rome and Hill are probably the two most prominent. Rome has had Houston Texans players on his major shows for a number of years.

But the majority can go take a hike. BTW Joe Buck at FOX is right near the top of that list too.

PS - I get that there are good UT fans out there - probably some on this website so spare me that BS. The administrations of both parties, UT and ESPN, really tick me off though.

No agenda, just truth.

ESPN is not covering the Texans because THEY DON'T WANT TO (except for people at that network like Hill who have an open mind and take a genuine interest). They want to cover teams and headlines that sell. The Longhorn Network signing for 20 years reflects that. The Tebow coverage reflects that. Covering only a specific few teams a year like the Steelers, Ravens, Patriots, Packers reflects exactly that.

Like it or not, it's right in front of your face. ESPN picks and chooses who they want to cover. They are, officially, in league with certain NFL and college teams, of this I am certain.

Which is why I don't watch about 95 percent of their programming unless it's games. They are no longer about journalism - they are about money. And UT gobbling up that 20 year contract proves they are all about making a buck as well - their admin doesn't give a flying rat's behind about you or me and neither does ESPN.

Both have heartless, soulless greedy administrations who drive out all their competition instead of letting their competition make them better. They stack the deck in their favor which is not how you become great. You become great by letting competition make you better.

And granted, he has has improved the broncos immensely. HOWEVER what about our first ever playoff? our first EVER AFC South win? how ABOUT YATES, our 3rd string that no one gave two $hits about during the combine??? I kept hoping yesterday that NFLN would grant us just a LITTLE bit of congrats... and no. On the upside, they can play us as the underdogs all they want. They all think we're the same team from last year or... whenever. Maybe when we win the AFC they'll take us serious... wait, no they won't.... we're the TEXANS and everyone's still jealous that we were a country and they weren't!

Mike and Mike did the evening sportscenter right before the MNF game and had a phone interview with TJ Yates for about 5 minutes. Yates talked about the game winning drive and what was said in the huddle and how everything seemed calm.
As far as the coverage during the day....seemed like they wanted to concentrate on Tebow vs the Bears....
First take has turned into a lovefest for Tebow by Skip Bayless......just pure manlove....think he wants to marry the guy lmao....

Yates long was strong on No Huddle. Had a segment on grading the young QBs. Sapp and Mariuchi both gave Yates a B+. Jalen Rose gave him an A-. Swoon gave him an I for "I don't know". Pretty good.

WTF is wrong with ESPN, NFL today? The Falcons get the cover story? Why? We clinched our first ever playoff spot in a miracle game and we're a side story. F the national media.

It was supposed to be "earn it, and you get it" Now we've earned it, and are still being looked over

You've got grow your fan base to get love from the media.
Steelers, Packers, Cowboys, Yankees. Those are the teams they love because fans are weak minded and root for those teams.

Texans fans need therapy I think. Never seen a group of people more wrapped up in who does or doesn't "respect" their team.

It's a really simple equation. Win and you get respect. Win for a long time and you are entitled to respect. I love the Texans but they ain't won shit in ten years and what's worse they've spent the last three years making anybody stupid enough to predict they were gonna win look bad.

It gets better too. If they go one-and-done in the playoffs and get smoked in the process then they're starting over again next year. If they come out next year and go 6-10 for some reason (and I don't for a second believe they will) then they start over again. Consistent winning gets all this attention everybody craves.

Nobody likes bandwagon fans but guess who votes your players into the Pro Bowl (at least from the fan-side)?

That's right, bandwagon fans who know their name because they follow the team because it wins.

Can't wait for the game tomorrow. If they win again Yates is going to start pulling some attention away from Tebow and god knows (no pun intended) we could all use a little less Tebow coverage.

We damn sure don't deserve any respect after that shitty performance last night on their last nationally televised game of the season! I wouldn't be surprised if they never show a clip of us again, our coach and team deserves a 2 hour rant by Michael Lombardi on how "soft" we are and how bad we have stunk it up the last two weeks. Maybe if they were forced to listen to that they would play harder to shut up the criticism. I hope the team enjoys their Christmas and that they enjoy the extra time to linger in their stench. I know they have put a huge downer on the start to my holiday. 0-10 in Indy... fantastic, never swept the Colts... fantastic! I guess these Texans got too big headed after doing what they should have done which was to win a weak division, I didn't buy any division champ gear because I was afraid this would happen. Maybe it's best we don't go into the playoffs over confident with a rookie QB anyways, hopefully they wake up before then and hopefully Kubiak pulls his head out soon. Happy Christmas all! Oh yeah, and go Texans...

F them, then. What the Texans have accomplished despite injuries is one of the more compelling stories of the NFL season. If the NFLN is too dense to recognize that, they are the ones that don't deserve respect. Many teams would have quit. The Colts quit. Past Texans teams would have quit. This team didn't quit, and for the most part overachieved all year long. The 2011 Texans deserve the NFL's and their followers' respect.
