Re: 5 Best teams in the NFL?
It's like being a parent. We are always harder on our own kids than we are with other people's kids.
We see every play of Texans games. Highlights of other teams for the most part.
I just EXPECTED more heart from this team last night. I did not expect a win, because I was not deluded about the Packers and their record. I thought we were going to face and elite team and they did what elite teams are capable of doing: DOMINATE.
I think the Texans have the potential to be an elite team in 2012. But I'm not crowning their asses, yet. I want proof, not potential. They've got to earn it!
Maybe "heart" was the wrong word (I was still a little aggravated with them yesterday, but over it now).
I just saw them come out flat and never seemed to have a pulse. We were still in the game at the end of the 3rd quarter when the score was 28-17. They could still have won the game at that point if they fought for it.
But they did not fight for it, and honestly it looked like they did not even try.
They were being dominated, and when I perceive an attitude of submission from our team, I question their heart FOR THAT ONE GAME.
Here's how I analyzed my list:
Falcons - 6-0 team. Undefeated teams deserve the benefit of respect
Giants - defending Super Bowl champions
Packers - 15-1 team last year, HoF QB, one year removed from an NFL championship. Veteran team that rebounds well.
49ers - Young team. Harbaugh is going to achieve great things with this team. NFC Championship game in his first year as HC anyone?
Patriots - yeah yeah 3-3 record, BUT, Belichick, Brady, defending AFC champions, this team rises as the cream of the crop every year without fail.
Like I said, the Texans could be considered 6th or 7th, depending on how to you want to frame it. I love our team and want great things for them, but I'm not going to put them in the top 5 just to be a homer about it.
And TK, for YOU of all people to start throwing around the myopic blast? Fo real??
