Yeah, let's start whining again.. Or actually, let's never stop... Because we're not among 2-3 teams picked to go to the SB from AFC. Unbelievable.

Oh, and Texans have 5 prime time games this year, the maximum number allowed per team.

Local simulcasting of cable games
To maximize TV ratings, as well as to protect the NFL's ability to sell TV rights collectively, games televised on ESPN or the NFL Network are simulcast on a local broadcast station in each of the primary markets of both teams (the Green Bay Packers have two primary markets, Green Bay and Milwaukee, a remnant of when they played some home games in Milwaukee each season, see below). This station does not need to have affiliate connections with a national broadcaster of NFL games. Stations who are the affiliates of MyNetworkTV or The CW (and, in at least one case, an independent station[22]) have out bid more established local broadcasters in some markets. However, the home team's market must be completely served by the station and that broadcast can only air if the game is sold out within 72 hours of kick-off (see below).
On November 8, 1987, the very first NFL game ever aired on ESPN was played between the New England Patriots and New York Giants. Technically, the game was only simulcast in the Boston market, with a separate broadcast produced for the New York market by ESPN sister property WABC-TV – at the time, WABC's union contract prohibited non-union workers (like those of ESPN) from working on live events broadcast on the station. This marked the only time since the AFL-NFL merger that a regular season game was locally produced for TV. The WABC broadcast featured WABC's own Corey McPherrin doing play-by-play, and Frank Gifford and Lynn Swann from Monday Night Football doing color commentary.

They are.

You'll see Texans/Jets and Texans/Pats on one of these local channels. The Colts game was on CW last year....

Thing is Texans are better than the Cowboys NO MATTER what condition the Texans are in.

I would rather be punched and kicked in my happy parts repeatedly than even pretend to be a Cowboys fan.

No matter how "Good" the Cowboys have been...... or ever might possibly be in the future...(Ugh that tasted like bile)... they SUCK!

Even before inception and after that previous team of ours left...... the Cowboys still fell way short of being the best team in Texas.

I think some people are just harder on "their" team than any other team, and McClain is one of those people. We beat Atlanta with Yates last December. Yes, I know they've probably gotten better. So have the Texans. Truth is the Texans are the best team in the NFL right now, but it's scary to say it, because you think about the LOOOOOOOOOOOONG road to the Superbowl...

That's OK, nobody really takes him seriously anyways. Sounds like a desperate cry for attention, because he knows that new young lady the Chronicle hired will have his job in the next year or two.

even jim nantz said that sundays game against the broncos was the first time the texans were featured in the national double header game.. thats almost like a primetime game since the entire nation was being broadcasted the texans.
