Did you see the Steelers game last year? We were seriously close to 50/50...and that's in the Bull Pen!

well winning all the time does bring alot of fan bases and the steelers and packers are pretty much the ideal way to build your ball club model to go buy

I've been a NINER fan since I was a kid, won lots of money off my brothers who HATED them, but, I will NEVER pull for them when they play the TEXANS! Any other time, YES, I want them to kick ass, but, NEVER when they play us.
I just think it says that BullBlitz isn't primarily a Texan fan. He's primarily a Packer fan. We're probably his #2 or #3 favorite team.

And that's OK.

I'm a Texan fan first and I think most of us are. (Although there are a couple of Cowboy fans here.) But I have other teams that I like. I lived in eastern Pennsylvania for awhile and became an Eagle fan while I was there but they're not my primary team.

Post Re: 2012 Schedule

I was hoping to make it down for a game this year, but this schedule doesn't work out too well for me. Maybe Tennessee or Baltimore. Hope I can make it, though. OTOH, the schedule looks good for the team, except for that stretch on the road late. As long as they get off to a good start

Peyton Manning is so smart...he saw into the future and knew he'd be with the Broncos and that the Texans would play the Broncos in 2012.

Peyton is a cyborg from the future. I am convinced of it, like Vinnie said.

We better be happy with our schedule, it could be worst. Jgl35 (John) told me the Ravens have 4 games in 17 days to start the season. Man, that would suck. Seems like poor planning to me, and I would be ticked off if I was a Raven Coach, or player. NOT that I have any love for the blackbirds, BUT, that's still rough.

Eagles on Sunday 9/16
SNF against the Pats on 9/23
Come back on Thurs 9/27 and play the Browns.

4 games in 17 days. BUT, after looking at it, the 4 days between the Pats and Browns is the only tough stretch.

3 of the 4 are at home with a trip to Philly on 5 days rest, one day less than normal. Hell they could take a cab.

Cleveland at home on 4 days rest...

Except for week seven-teen there will be a Thursday game every week of the season. The Packers-Bears will open the season with two games in four days since they play Thursday in week two. The Panthers will play three games in eleven days. Nothing really looks out of the norm with the Ravens schedule except that they play their first game on MNF.

While this may be true, this will be the first time Gary Kubiak's Texans have started the season with a S.O.S. below .500

Expectations are going to be up..... even higher than they normally are for the Texans. 2011, I think we lived up to our expectations, but we had a lot of help, Peyton Manning, Blaine Gabbert, the Browns, Blaine Gabbert, CJ2ypc. Even with everything we had to deal with, more things "fell" our way than not.

It's April & we're looking at a schedule we should dominate. That wasn't the case 12 months ago. It's now time to see how this organization performs against those expectations.
