It will probably be just a video on the site. However is someone wants to take the time you could fraps it, run it through a program to lower the size (fraps files are HUGE) and upload it.

Anybody else think it's long since time we put this "milestone moment" permanenty to bed? Sure, it was great when it happened but with history's hindsight it's pretty bittersweet. The Cow****s turned out to be a 5-11 team that year (Texans were 4-12). Dave Campo was the coach. Quincy Carter and Chad Hutchinson were the quarterbacks. Texans built on the big victory with 4 depressing-as-hell years of Capers/Casserly/Carr. To me, this game is like a great party with your friend from college who soon after moved in with you, got strung out on meth, and stole all your stuff. You knew you should have kicked him out sooner, but that one great night clouded your mind.

It's a permanent milestone, the first game, first victory, and against the Cowboys to boot (no pun intended).

As for the party analogy, sorry to hear that. It must have been awful. :D (kidding)

Nope. Put in perspective by some, sure. But it was one of the greatest NFL opening days ever. Frankly, it probably made the Texans a lot more money over the next few years. That doesn't mean it has to be the pinnacle for the franchise, of course. It's just one game that we remember fondly.

I agree completely with eriadoc. And judging by the reactions of fans at Texans Talk and the fact at the franchise is putting the game on their website, there are a lot of fans that have no desire to forget this game.

It was a fun night and one I will never forget, regardless of how much success the Texans have in the future.

I was there in all my Cowboys gear.

Although I was still enthusiastic about the Texans and being a PSL owner having the experience of going over to the hotel and selecting my seat. Funny thing in all of that, I still haven't checked the display for my name, and better put that on my bucket list of things I would like to before I die.

Being a Cowboys lifer, the results were embarrassing. Not because it was the Texans, but the FACT that we were so pathetic we couldn't beat an expansion team in their first game. We had grown accustomed to the 5-11 and wondered if Jerry would ever hire a competent coach, but that was an in-your-face rock bottom. Thankfully, if there was a silver lining, we got rid of Campo. Trust me, after that game his coaching decision were as bad if not worse throught the rest of that season.

I probably won't be watching the rebroadcast, but it's mainly because once I've seen a game, I rarely take a second look, and if so it is usually within a few days.

I'm thinking I need to save my copy of the game in a few different places.
I haven't rewatched it for a long time, and who knows, both my DVD and mpg versions might have gone bad - I surely hope not.

This one has got to be a keepsake! :choke:

Texans play Dallas once every 4 years in a comparatively meaningless inter-conference game: just don't get the preoccupation with that NFC franchise by so many fans in Houston, especially for a game that was played 10 years ago ? Texans won that game, that's great, but move on people it was played 10 years ago.

From what I seem to get from a lot of Houstonians about that game was the big deal was beating Dallas, not necessarily winning the inaugural game in franchise history ? You tell me if I'm wrong, but I don't think it would have been such a big deal if they'd beat any other NFL team in that franchise opener 10 years ago ?

It being Dallas was a fun part of it, speaking as one who grew up in Houston. It was a big deal, a great way to start a franchise, an improbable beginning. Something fun to go back and look at. The fact that it was Dallas made it better.

So what if we still like to acknowledge it. I don't understand your apparent problem.

As to the bolded part, thing is it was Dallas. If...if...if. I don't like the IF arguments. Fiction is what it is. If my grandother had nuts I wouldn't have called her Granny. :D

No it would not of been as big a deal. Did you grow up in Houston? I moved from Houston to Lufkin when I was 12. Being a town closer to Houston than Dallas I thought there would be plenty of Oiler fans there, Boy was I wrong. I suffered through 3 cowboy superbowls while our Oilers found a new way to break my heart every year. Every friend I had was a cowboy's fan. To have our new team beat the team that tormented me for all those years. That was special. I will never get tired of watching that game.

The fact of the matter is that most of us Houston fans have been jibed, ridiculed, and teased for our NFL allegiance for a long time. You get outside Houston and the rest of Texas are Dallas fans. So yeah, to win that way against that team felt good because it was basically a STFU card for a while. Furthermore, the animosity between Dallas and Houston goes deeper than football, and we Houstonians tire of the uppity Dallasites trying to act like they're better than us when they're not. I'll never forget as a child passing through Dallas and stopping at a filling station for the restroom. There was a sign over the toilet that said "Flush twice, Houston needs water".

Football is the one area they've got us, so when we get a chance to tell them to STFU for a while, it's nice. Actually, the best part about that game wasn't that we got to tell them to STFU; it was that we didn't have to. They did it on their own.

Are you kidding? It's stuff like this that makes Dallas look down on us with confused, pitying laughter. "Wait a minute, you guys make your most cherished moment the time you beat our worst team of the last 20 years in a regular season game?"

Let's beat the piss out of them in a super bowl and then I'll gloat. In fact, gloating is for the weak-minded so screw that. Let the Texans continue to beat the piss out of everybody for the next few years and we won't have to stand on random small victories like this game.

Well, yeah, duh.

But when your team is a new franchise without any history, it's games like that first game of your history that are important. To dismiss the fact that we won our first game as a football team against our cross-state rivals as an important milestone is silly. How long did the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have to wait to win their first game? 26 games.

We don't have a history of winning. We haven't gone to the SB. We haven't been to the playoffs multiple years in a row. We don't have a lot from a tradition standpoint to hang our hats on.

Cleveland fans are still proud of Bernie Kozar and Jim Brown. Raider, Niner, and Cowboy fans still strut around bragging about their Super Bowl victories. And all of that happened before we even existed as a team.

So, yeah, beating the Cowboys 19-10 in our first game is a historic game for me and one I still cherish. Arian Foster winning a rushing title and Matt Schaub winning a passing title are things I cherish as well. But before I can start being proud and talking about our winning tradition, we've got to start winning and make it a tradition. When we do that, I'll start being proud about that, too.

Does anyone recall that same year the Texans beat a very good Pittsburg team in Pittsburg with almost negative stats?

Meh, it's one of those "if the shoe fits" comments. Speaking in generalities, the Cowboys have one of the more annoying fan bases out there. Doesn't mean every last one of them are. Never met you, but your post history suggests a thoughtful, pleasant person. Therefore, you should probably switch teams. :D

I know a ton of awesome Cowboys fans. Some of my best friends are fans of the 'boys. But I know a lot, lot more Cowboys fans who I can't stand.

For some reason they attract the worst of the worst.

I lived in Virginia for 5 years. When I asked people what their favorite team was, Dallas was by far the most common answer.
"Are you from Dallas?" "Have you ever been to Dallas?" "Do you have ANY connection to Dallas?"
You can guess what the answer to these questions was.

I watched the sports apparel segment on either HSN or QVC last week and thought it was funny a lady called in to order a sports team throw. She said she had bought the New England throw for her son last year because he loved the Patriots. She was asked if this years offering was a different design and she said no, that the New York Giants is now his favorite team. Next year, she could be ordering one for the Texans.

Thank you kindly, but I do probably fit into the "if the shoe fits" category because unyielding people do tend to be annoying. Anyone that knows me would say I'm not a good candidate for switching because come gameday, the question would be where's bullstruck, only to find out that she has sneaked off to Cowboys Stadium. I like the Texans a whole lot, though.
