Then perhaps somebody besides the fans can blame the players who listen to the fans who actually believe their press clippings and what I like to call twitfluff. I think I'm gonna blame the whole messy, sorted Bulls on Parade charade. The season was cursed early on when we violated a basic principle of building proper football lore. Catchy nicknames are for teams that make some noise in the playoffs. Everything else is a paper tiger.
The 2012 Texans go like this...
Early in the season there is a whine that we don't get enough respect even though we haven't done anything yet - check
Fans and team adopt ridiculous sounding nickname for a defense that hasn't done anything yet - check
Team wins some games and buys High School letter jackets and actually wear them to the Patriot game. - check
I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop. I'm not being negative. It's just the soothsayer in me.
I am still enjoying this season. While it lasts.
But that nickname was given last year before the ATL game, sir.
