Their team had also been around a lot longer than the 10+ years the Texans have. We are still "new fans" compared to most NFL team fans. Our team has done something once. We are still waiting for the Texans to be more consistant with winning. We have had our hopes dashed too many times to be overconfident at this point.
Yeah that's understandable. I still think most fans should be rational and think on a case-by-case basis.
Those Super Bowl trophies were a long time ago. Times have changed, and maintaining an almost unwarranted confidence in your team just because they've been champions in the past seems unreasonable to me.
Then again, I wouldn't know. I only know what it's like to be a Houston sports fan.
