He was messed up last night, for sure.

I switched it over there after the game...and he was incoherent sometimes. Red eyes, glazed over, the rest of the crew was having a hard time stomaching him at all. At least it looked like it.

Yeah, dude is bizarre IMO. I hope he's living off the interest, because seriously he can't last much longer like that.

Marshall Faulk was having to intervene with him last night, save Irvin from himself. It was awkward.

Default Re: Do the Texans get national respect now?

JJ Watt and Arian Foster have been representing the Texans well on the national scene. I'm not sure what other perceived respect is required by downtrodden Texan fan, but I have not seen anyone really disrespecting the 2012 Texans.

You earn respect in this league. Now, if you are talking press coverage, then be a circus like the Jets. But coverage =/= respect, so don't get the two confused.

I like having a low profile 'lunch box' team. They all subscribe to the "just a game" mentality after they win and they play one game at a time without looking ahead and hyping themselves with b.s.

Yep. I can't stand watching NFLN on Sunday nights now because of that Irvin jackass. He's a complete ****ing idiot. Since I don't watch ESPN, I guess I'm getting all my commentary from here now.

How about a more credible Cris Carter's assessment on ESPN:
Quote:
The Houston Texans can run the ball ... on anybody. They were committed to their run and they executed their run. They have a very good offensive line ... and they're not like a lot of other teams if you can check them out of the run in the first or second quarter they're going to stop running the football.

I think that Matt Schaub is a good quarterback.

I like that they took the national stage after stinking it up against Green Bay. This is their second time on the national stage Sunday night and they took advantage of it ... regardless what the elements were they went to Chicago in a tough situation and they won that football game. They created 4 turnovers, doubled the turnovers of Bear's -- to me, that's a major accomplishment. Being 8-1 is major.

1. Who cares?

2. Yes, they have the respect of the national media. One thing to remember, not everybody is going to agree with everything with you or me as Texans fans.

3. For all you whiners who turned the game day thread into a Collinsworth b1tch fest, here's a link to a Bears forum thread doing what? You guessed it - bitching about Collinsworth. When a broadcaster tries to even remotely be unbiased, he will usually piss off idiot fans from both sides.

Is this a freaking joke or for real? How can anyone start a thread like this legitimately at this point? When multiple media outlets have you marked down as the AFC team in the super bowl. You have their respect. Dumb, Dumb, Dumb thread. That is all

I definitely think we are getting respect. I live in DFW and every game minus the first JAX game has been on tv. This includes playing the game against the Cowboys game when we played Baltimore. This has never happened.

Also, we are now getting the horribly produced Fox Sports Texans Huddle up here.

To step aside from the OP assertion, is "the Texans are the most well rounded team" compliment equivalent to "he has a great personality".

Something irks me about this compliment.

Default Re: Do the Texans get national respect now?

I think we're getting tons of respect, but they still aren't going to do a bunch of stories about us because we have a bunch character on our team and not a bunch of characters.

Case in point: While the Texans got some good coverage this week, the biggest story was the Dallas vs. Phili game. With two of the most overrated QBs in the business leading the way for two hot seat coaches, it was easier to develop a story about them. I mean really, what's the most contriversial thing about the Texans - OD's unknown TD dance and Barwin's changing hair styles.

Has anyone noticed that Barwin is playing better now that his hair has grown out a bit?

Get used to it y'all, we're just boring (and I kinda like it that way).

I'm in the "Who Cares" camp as well... BUT!

I can't wait to hear Collin Cowherd's top 10 tomorrow. For some reason, he hates the Texans so much, that I'm addicted to hear what bad he has to say about our team every week. Just this last week he had us ranked #6! Yes, I said S-I-X! His top 5 were:

1) Bears - who has never beat a team with a winning record this season
2) Steelers - yes, the team with 3 losses (two of them against the Titans & Raiders)
3) Patriots - yes, the team with 3 losses (one against the Cardinals)
4) Giants - yes, another team with 3 losses (not including this past sunday's killing)
5) Falcons - ok, i can understand them being ahead

He punished us for not beating the Bills by more. Come on... who does that? Tied for the best record in the league, we beat his precious previous #1 ranked team... I can't wait to hear his reasoning why we're still not #1 on his list.

I really am surprised. I mean sure the media quit sucking up to us after that beat down we received from Green Bay, but they have been giving us major props all year. All the networks have been hyping us since the start of the season as Super Bowl contenders, Watt is getting called the DPOY by essentially everyone, Foster gets praised weekly by players and pundits alike, etc.

I just don't see anything to complain about even with Collinsworth's blatant homerism last night.
