This doesn't have crap to do with "respect" Which Houston will never gain after a big conference win..
Shat (the aftermath), the Giants don't even get the coverage that the (new cowboys, the Jets) do.
I think a lot of that hinges on the "casual fan."
I guess the definition of casual fan can be argued, but I'd say anyone who's posting on a fan board like this one isn't anywhere close to "casual fan." We're all pretty committed to watching this team and the sport in general.
But then there are those who just for the Tebow and things like that, and that's who most (if not all) of these major networks cater to.
It's just a bigger market.
