And when did I make a difference between pre-season and regular? I said every game. I'm sorry but it's not just our 1st stringers that are the "Texans". I'm speaking of the entire team here. Maybe you forgot about last years game vs. Chiefs. I'm just saying that they need to go into every game, pre-season or regular, with the same hunger and fire as their first.
If it's their second pre-season game (like this past game with Steelers), play it as if it's your pre-season opening game like the Dallas game!
If it's week 8, play it as if it's the season opener...with the same intensity, with the same determination, as if you have something to prove is what I'm saying. They did play like that at the closing of last season, I won't deny that. They just need to remember those nailbiting losses like they did in the Dallas game in every game....like they will vs. San Diego, week in-week out.
