Default Observations from the frenemy

First of all congrats. This is the strongest club you have ever assembled. All you do is take care of business and so far, the Texans have done so and then some.

All I can say is stay healthy. This is a 13-3 team staring at you in the face - one that can compete with anyone.

Good luck on the football front. Your defense is possibly special.

Yeah, Toronto is one of those guys that is nice enough, very courteous and pleasant, yet is still a part of the worst enemy's clan. Sorry T, we hate you.

There are several fans from other divisional teams that post here and are nice guys. Toronto is one of them. Although, I can't think of any Dolt fans that post here regularly, only Titan and Jaguar fans.

Toronto is a long time fan of the Oilers/Titans. He is one of those that was an Oilers fan but didnt' have real ties to the city of Houston. So when the team moved he went with them.

Of course I am sure he regrets that often. You can change the city, the name and alter the colors however the heartbreaking results remain the same.

He should have stuck with Houston and not Bud Adams.

Speaking of which, Toronto, this would be a good time to hop on the bandwagon.

Question for Toronto

Hasselbeck looked better than Locker. How did Locker win the starting job?

We saw 2 pass attempts from Locker.
Hassleback threw 2 pick 6s.

I see where he's going thoug admittedly it was a small sample to look at. The Titans seemed to get a spark when Hasselbeck came in. They looked really unsteady in the short time that Locker was on the field. It reminded me of how the Texans used to settle down and play better when Tony Banks came in for Carr. Not that I'm comparing the relative quality of Carr and Locker or saying Locker has Carr's upside (= None). It's just that Banks was a veteran and the team always looked more focused when he went in and the Titans did the same thing yesterday when Hasselbeck came in.

Locker has some upside. He can play in this league, just needs to clean up some things & get the reps. Better O-line is in order, too.

It's an enemy who can sometimes be perceived as being a friend.

Sort of that love/hate scenario where it's an enemy but yet a friendly one or some sort.

Combination of Friend and Enemy: Frenemy.

Personally, I never use the term, but it's all the rage with the kids these days.

I wanted to rep this.

I grew up in Houston 1975-84. (2-12) I was a wee little one when the Astros and Oilers broke our hearts in 1980. (and 1981 on the Astros)

I moved back to Toronto (my birthplace) when my folks split up, but obviously was married to the Astros, Rockets and of course Oilers. Like all of you, had my heart broken by the Astros in '86, the Run N' Shoot and their dumbass coaches.

I was in the stadium for 35-3. I had the joy of the Rockets in 93-94 and by that time had some love for the Jays too so piggybacked off their two titles in 92-93.

As time's gone by, the connection to Houston has slipped. I've only been back to the town twice since 1990, and once was for business.

That said, I still love the Astros, have warm memories of the teams and the passion I grew up on/with and love chatting with you folks, even though Canada has certainly moved me much further left than most of you politicially.

I guess I would have stuck with the Texans and Rockets if the connection to Houston had been stronger, but I adopted the Raptors and stuck with Bud Adams, even though I hate his guts as much as you guys.

This is the best Houston football team I have personally seen since 1993. Just hope Kubiak's a better coach than Jack Pardee.
