You left out all the Jets and Cowboys coverage. Even though THEY'RE NOT IN THE ****ING PLAYOFFS. They're not even playing and they get talked about nonstop.

It's because we're not flashy. We don't have a ridiculous owner, a loudmouth coach, or a player that's been to jail or suspended this season. Let's just keep quietly winning. Now, Kyle Lowry on the Rox just got arrested a bit ago in LV for Assault right after the west coast road trip. Maybe they'll talk about that!!

See, thing is, do you really want the Texans on the news because our QB is married to a super model, or one of our WR's just shot himself in the foot? Or because our coach is a loudmouth idiot. I mean, I wouldn't mind more covereage on Arian and his Poetry. Andre and all the stuff he does for the community, Meco too. Unfortunately, the world no longer cares about good sumeritans, and studied intelligent people. They care about adversity, chaos and disrespect. Feed me, Seymour, feed me. Like little shop of horrors, the plant wanted to eat the bad folks, well people now just want the crappy news.

Is that really true though? I don't think so, that's why I don't watch the news, or that Jersey Shore crap or ESPN. I create my own news. I come to Texans talk and read the Articles that Texans fans have sifted through about my team, the videos they have posted and I'm good with that. I could care less what some "analyst" thinks about my Texans.

I know my Texans, and it's because of places llike Texanstalk that I know them even better. All the idiots that thought we were going to lay an egg against the Bengals... come on man. No Dre, No Brisiel for the losing streak, no Wade Phillips, I know better. Brisiel makes a hell of a difference on that line don't he??! I told em. Let's go into B'more and shock the nation. They won't even see it coming.

ESPN has become TMZ for sports. It's probably better not to have a sensational story line for them to cover.

Say the Texans win and the Broncos lose.....it will still be non stop Tebowing on ESPN. It won't just end like that.

I agree, they have become TMZ and they know fans are tired of it so they even say now flat out on Sports Center to "deal with it" as they put on more Tebow coverage.

Complete joke.

I explained the Tebow thing somewhere. Remember when he was in the Natl Chip and they kept touting him as the next great thing, NFL ready in fact?? Wellllll, he wasn't so NFL ready, in fact last year, he wasn't even practice squad ready. The talking heads felt that they were let down, but they were silent...they waited, then, all of a sudden, BAM! We was right yo! Tebow's da man! woot woot. In all reality, Tebow may turn out to be a decent to above average QB. I think the thing about Tebow, is that his very public Christianity, which I admire in a Christian, has kind of awoke many within the nation, and they want to hear more. Kind of a, "What can God do for Tebow". "Can that change my life, or even America?"

You have to understand the context of human thought and emotion. Now, does God really care about the outcome of a football game, maybe, maybe not. But that is why America is tuning in, that is why they are reporting it. People want hope in a country that is going downhill fast. That's why we lose ourselves in football, in some other activity. This way, we don't have to think about what's going on with the government taking more and more rights away by the day. How many folks have relatives and friends over seas. There is a lot going on, So God and Tebow are a big story. So what? Why is that so important in your life. Are you more mad about the Texans not being shown, or the fact that every time you turn around, a man that symbolizes God is being thrown in your face, and somewhere, from the bottom of your soul, it makes you feel guilty, or angry because of that. I don't know, I'm not a licensed professional, but I thought I'd take a stab at it.

I was being very general here too, not necessarily attacking you Htown2ATX

How is saying we cover a 7 and a half point spread giving us respect?
Especially since not even all 3 of them picked us.

Also, watching NFL live right now and they have covered every team but the Texans, it said Texans /Ravens game but all they talk about is Ray Rice/Flaco/Lewis.

The link took me straight to Kuharsky's AFC South blog.

One of the Anchors addressed this very candidly. The Tebow Steelers game had the highest rating of any play-off game in quite some time. Their ratings are going up the more they talk about Tebow... heaven forbid (no pun intended) if they announce a Tebow program or that they'll be talking about Tebow after the break...

DVRs get loaded up, viewers tune in, & advertising demand goes up.

This won't be over until the Broncos can him & Tebow is out of the league... heck, I guarantee you if someone doesn't pick him up, ESPN or NFLN will.

Right. And what was in the blog? All I saw was an embedded video of ESPN's First Take.

I saw no text or post from Kuharsky.
