Do the Texans get national respect now?
 
4 of the 9 teams they've played thus far will likely go to the playoffs. 3 of which are favored to win their divisions. *Broncos, Packers, Ravens, and Bears.*

They are 3-1 against those 4. Winning 2 of those games on the road. Yet all year they "haven't *played anybody"...

I like them staying under the radar.

You have to earn respect, which to the national media, will always be more than whatever any Houston team does.

They have been getting national respect all year. Turn on NFL network once in a while. Another thread that makes me go all Vince Palm. :vincepalm:

I could care less nowadays about national media coverage where as a few years ago I would get all worked up about it. However, it is still funny to me to hear asinine media downplay Texans victories which is an undeniable fact that this happens. After the win in NYJ immediately after the game it was all about the Jets to which if I remember correctly one of the broadcasters even jokingly apologized to Texans fans for.

I'm already hearing excuses on why the Bears lost nationally and how you "can't really take anything away from this game as far as learning something since it was bad weather and Cutler got knocked out", etc. I'm sure when I'm home at lunch the idiots on First Take will say stupid stuff downplaying the Texans.

Plus Houston just has a bad rep nationwide, I've even heard us referred to as a "small market" to which I LOL'ed so hard I gave myself a headache.....yeah....small market....never mind 4th largest city in the country, top 10 media market, energy capital of the country if not world, etc....

Again with the cries of "Respect Us!". Come on guys, this **** gets embarrassing after a while. Don't be so needy.

Danieal is definitely the most underrated Manning in the family.

It really doesn't matter. Earning respect isn't going to bring W's. As long as this team keeps winning and does it's winning in January, they'll do the speaking for themselves.

I also liked what someone in this said earlier. Flying under the radar (kinda hard to do with the record this team has right now), but that's one thing I really liked about last year's team.

I echo the thoughts of a few posters in this thread...get over it.

How do you think Giants fans feel on the brink of a dynasty and all the media can talk about is the Jets.

I think we get a ton of respect. JJ was on the cover of SI, Arian was on the cover of ESPN the mag. We have tons of first place votes and lots of first page articles on the big news networks. We're a consensus superbowl pick, the favorite to the win the AFC, and fantasy people pay attention to us. What do you want, exactly?

Despite having a Bull for a mascott, the Texans have shown the NFL they aint BULL I$HTTIN'!

This again.


ESPN - the magazine, the network, the website - has been hyping us up all year, giving us tons of attention and accolades, and we're STILL worried about respect?

Yeah I was at this point for a while. Especially last season. But I've discovered getting the W is much more satisfying, and seeing the Texans fly under the radar is just fine with me.
