why do i feel like a lone Texan fan here?

they seemed to play as a team pretty well the first time we met down yonder. the talent is there, they just need a head coach that can bring it together, and fans to stand behind them reguardless of the W/L record. there are some of ya, but i watch highlights on SportCenter and the stadium is half full. that's not good team support. they're not gonna try if they have no reason to... they get paid reguardless.

Thumbs up Few Hours Before Kickoff...I Still Guarentee A Victory vs. Indy

The Indianapolis Colts are a very tough football team this year obviously. There 8-0 record supports that.

We're going through a rather sluggish time period currently, behind a 1-7 record.

However, i strongly belive this team is better than their record shows. I've said it before, and i still do- we fight hard (both mentally and physically), we are a smart team, have talent, and good leadership witihin the coaches.

We're going to go in the RCA Dome and defeat the Colts Today. We will win

Go Texans

Now, this year could defintely be better. But, we are a better team than our record shows. We fight hard with emotion, we are a smart football team, have talent and coaching, just need to make bigger plays at bigger times.

I also know when this team is ready to play, and pumped up. They are ready to take of the Colts this upcoming Sunday in the RCA Dome. We are mad that nobody is giving us a chance to even come close. We're a 17.5 point underdog. Lets face it: this game, the pressure is on them, not us...we really have nothing to loose this game.

I guareente we beat the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday, giving us our second win, and them they're first loss of the 2005 season. We will win this game, mark it down. I promise.

Wish I would have read this earlier so I could have made a bet with you.

Alright, that's two tags. I let the first one slide, but not the second. Tell me this, KY - how packed was the Colts stadium in the '84 through '94 seasons where you had some up and down times (mostly down) for those first 3 out of 10 winning seasons in Indy? I'l let ya know - about an avg of 54,000. Flip side, the Texans have been averaging about 69,000 while supporting an expansion / now 1-8 team.

Understandable you have a smaller market - but regardless of the market, you're telling me fans (in general) will support a team with issues? True - the die hards will and that's a given anywhere and in any sport, but it's not till you start seeing the wins and a better product that the other "bw fans" come out of the woodwork.

I guess my point is... it's not just a Houston thing with the fan base "supporting regardless of W/L record", and if you didn't mean it like that, apologies.

Not trying to get into this argument, but the RCA dome only seats 57,000-58,000...not the 70K that Reliant has.

Understandable, so a 93% capcity filled vs. a 99% capacity filled is a more applicable statemtent?

Bah, just testy after another loss and to see a post of "why aren't y'all supporting your team through the tough times" just rubbed me the wrong way.

Good game Colts, this just may be your year now that the Pats are "out of the way" .... to this point anyway.
