How come the Jets loss and we didn't win?
 
Anyone else getting mad that they aren't covering our win but covering the Jets loss? I understand the whole bigger market thing but this is ridiculous.

I've heard how the Jets were only an onside kick, and a few interceptions away from winning this game.

But we aren't hearing how The Jets had multiple chances to take the game but couldn't convert because when push came to shove our defense shoved them out of FG range. Or how really the only reason it was close was because of a stupid Kick Off return, otherwise it's a par for the course 23-10 win for us.

Did the Texans play sloppy? Yes. Did the Texans play down to their opponent? Yes. But overall it was a team that did all the small things right to win the game.


I can only imagine how much it will be because Green Bay lost next week.

Oh well.....just keep winning Texans.

Because everyone expected the Texans to win. There's no story there.

Rex Ryan still has a job, that's a story. Sanchez is still their starting QB, that's a story. Tebow is still their back up, that's a story.

Have the Texans even trailed in a game this year?

Yes, opening drive vs Miami and Denver.

Oh lord guys, just wait until we lose our first game. Talk about press. We'll get lots of it and you won't like it. LOL

Good teams win ugly.

I usually watch FT on ESPN2 every morning just to see what the talking heads are blabbering about now. And this morning was that "The Texans did not look that formidable and the secondary was exposed." Yet when Baltimore only scored 9 on the Chiefs, nothing about them looking average was mentioned.

I honestly could care less about getting attention in the media.

Yep, those overated Texans are 5-0 now.

Move along..........

Which is larger television market, New York/New Jersey or Texas? They are playing to their ad base just like any of us would do.

JJ Watt and Arian Foster will turn the tide of media support. Not completely, mind you, but they will win some hearts and help us out in the marketability factor.

Both of those guys are electric in their on-field play and their personalities and how they are easy for the media to get quality soundbites and interviews from.

With Andre Johnson having been the only superstar here prior to Watt and Foster, the media never cared because although AJ can PLAY...he is as close to being a mute as you can get--There's nothing there to really show viewers at home.

And plus, we just have to understand that win or lose...the Jets and Giants and Patriots and Ravens and Steelers, etc., are always going to get the ESPN press because they are indeed located in that area. Nobody in New York or Bristol is impacted by Houston, TX. They're barely covering the Cowboys and the Cowboys are supposedly the most iconic NFL team even though they are perennial losers the past 15+ years.

I really don't care anymore. I get my "love" right here with all of us fellow fans, and frankly that's more rewarding than strangers (media elite) who are just bandwagon jumpers anyways. Fugg 'em, they mean zilch to me.

We didn't get any respect in 1994 and 1995 either, but we still beat dat azz against New York and Orlando. Trophies, people. TROPHIES.

I'd rather this team doesn't get media attention.

Re: How come the Jets loss and we didn't win?
 
1) I could care less about the media coverage, they ain't gon help us win...

2)The only way we will get what you are looking for is if we are on the verge of being considered a dynasty...meaning we must have at LEAST 2 Superbowl titles and playing for our third in a minimum of 4 years...then and only then, will Houston start getting the countries respect..oh and it will happen. Just be patient.

3) JJ WATT is putting us on the map..he is to the D what AJ was to the O this past decade..except for some reason AJ never got respect till his later years..

Yeah, but even watching Mike and Mike this morning, they only had Sanchez's and Tebow's stats on the screen. Maybe show the Texans also?

The Texans were not that impressive last night. They kept an inferior team in the game and to their credit, didn't collapse like the last time we played the Jets. The Jets circus is a much easier story to talk about outside of JJ Watt if you ask me.

You are right in every word, but I'm at the point where I say eff them. If they want to look like NYJ lapdogs let them. The teams knows it is good. The fans know that the team is good. The opponents they beat know the team is good. That's enough for me. But you're right, it's laughable.

I could careless about media attention but when we just won on MNF and they go to live press coverage of the losing HC and QB that pisses me off. My team won, we deserve the coverage.

Re: How come the Jets loss and we didn't win?
 
TBF to the Jets, them keeping it that close against us was far more impressive given their form and injuries than us winning by 6 points. I think there is also a huge story to be had from how many trick plays and wrinkles they felt the need to reveal so early in the season. If it wasn't for that kick return it would have looked a whole lot uglier though, especially given their need to resort to punt fakes and onside kicks to try and beat us.

Since the stream I got stuck with ESPN's sports center thing after the game I left it on all morning and tbf I'm far more interested in the Jets trainwreck than hearing some national media guy tell me a load of things I already knew about my team anyway.
