Default The Texans in the media's eyes...

OK, a few things have been bothering me lately, so here I go...why is a lot of the media so high on everyone else in our division, especially the Jags lately? What did they do in the offseason or draft that I missed? IMO we have a much better overall team and had a much better draft, and I am saying that from a football perspective, not just a Texans fan perspectuve. And I am so tired of a lot of the media being so down and skeptic about Carr now. People are saying that he hasn't learned things yet that he should have or he hasn't put up the numbers like he should, but do people realize that he came in here his rookie season and spent his whole rookie season on his back and running for his life, and last year he missed some time due to injury. I also read in an article somewhere that the Jags will be the team to watch this year, and they will not be a "sleeper" team because of their finish last year, and we will be at the bottom of the division...I just cannot figure it out...we split the series last year with the Jags, we beat one of the teams that were in the Super Bowl and took the other Super Bowl team into overtime, as well as leading Tennessee and Indy until the last minutes of the game. How could you have a better finish than that for a 2nd year team that was injury plagued for the whole season? How is that any worse than the Jags season? I guess overall the thing that gets to me is we are not getting the respect we deserve around the league and a lot of people are bad mouthing us while teams IMO that are worse than ours are getting talked about so much and so much praise, but I guess we will see this year who is worthy of all of the praise...

Oh, and by the way, did anyone see Channel 13 news last night? On their sports portion of the show they did a piece on the Texans training camp and how things are going and they showed Todd Wade and Gary Walker get into it really good. It took about 5 players and a couple of coaches, including Capers, to break it up. I thought those 2 were fixing to shed the pads and throw down!
