It was still shocking to see that much Saints gear on so many fans last week....it was revealing.
Its not that shocking, even when the Oilers were here it was like that, Steelers, Browns, Cinci, KC, virtually every team we play had a large following. Its Houston, this is the town were no one is from here, everyone is from somewhere else.
Maybe not a quarters worth but still a good amount of other teams fans.
