This is what Arian Foster said yesterday:
(on what he expects from the fans on Saturday) “I expect the same thing man. We have some good fans here in Houston and they were booing us last home game, but I forgive them.”
(on how much the fan support helps) “It helps a whole bunch. I’m a strong believer in energy. And when everybody’s energy is focused on one thing towards a positive thing, you can feel that. And you can also feel the opposite, when everybody is booing.”
This is what Antonio Smith said yesterday:
(on what he expects from the fans on Saturday) “I’m expecting them to be louder, without any boos or any disappointments. To just stick in there and to cheer as much as they can, because we feed off of them, they feed off of us. This is our house – together. We’re a part of them; they’re a part of us. Little do they know, they help us out a lot with how loud they get, especially in the defense. That’s what comes with home field advantage as defensive players and a defensive team is it takes away a whole other team’s cadence, the way they communicate. So the louder we are, the less their opportunity is to be on the field and make plays. We need to have one of those statistics like other teams have where they have how many false starts the crowd started and all that.”
Andy Dalton has struggled as of late. We really can make a difference. You could see how positive energy feeds the team after the JJ Watt interception last year. The cement under my seats was shaking it was so loud.
We can talk chicken and eggs. That the team has to be playing well to bring our positive energy. But why not bring it now? In this thread? And carry it over for tomorrow.
So fill this thread with positive energy, thoughts, words, pictures. Do positive things for yourself and others today and tomorrow. If you are tailgating, get your tailgate in Super Bowl shape. Tip well. Be nice to your friends and family. Be nice to yourself.
Be the ball, Danny.
Although I cannot afford $80 for a regular season ticket I and my two friends will be wearing our Texans gear and screaming 'another Houston Texans first down' at the television. We will high five and yell encouragement as if they could hear us. Each of us have a new Texans shirt purchased recently to add to our collection of gear. Mine is Fosters.
But hey Arian I too am in the forgiving mood. I will forgive you that your avg per attempt and per game has dropped because hey your 1424 season was damn good even if it did take you 351 attempts.
And Antonio, I got your back. In my posts, I am constantly defending you even when others say you disappear in games. And when it is pointed out you average less than 2 combined tackles per game, I point at your 7 sacks. It is not your fault that Watt has three times as many as you do, is it?
I know you feed off fans and we feed off team although we seem to be on some sort of starvation diet last 5-6 weeks but surely we are splurging rest of this year, right?
I will bring all I can as a fan and I just know you guys will bring it all as players. Oh, just a small point, fans boo or cheer as a reaction.
