Re: -Looking Forward- Texans vs Raiders 11/17/13
There is a long standing Texans tradition that says Texans players must crap the bed when facing their former team. This was begun in 2002 when Jay Foreman melted down while the Texans faced the Buffalo Bills in week 6 following the Texans Bye week.
The team was 1-3 at the time but with the 2-3 Bills coming to town Texans players and fans were thinking this was our best chance for our second win. I was not to be. Instead Jay got into a little foul trouble and kept the drive alive that proved to be the margin of victory.
Free agents signed by the Texans have been doing it ever since. Shane Lechler will have the worst game of his career following his illness and seal the defeat "somehow".
