I laughed out loud at the "Hey! They're kind of not shitty!" part.

The whole thing was funny. Can't take any of that personal. They will most likely profile every team...I assume

On the radio the other day they trolled all their listeners...They had a fake Cowboy fan call up and mimic that rant....

Oh man...So many people called up wanting to give that cowboys fan a piece of their mind...

Radio guys said they wanted to see how people would react if they thought it was a Cowboy fan instead of a deadspin article......

Not sure what point they were trying to prove or if they even had one...but it was kind of funny to listen to...

Who goes into Belichick's & Brady's house thinking there isn't a chance they'll lose? That would be delusional.

But I thought we were better than we showed - especially defensively. My hopefulness rested with J.J. and Wade.

The difference between hope and expectation can be delusion. We all hoped the Texans would win, but most of us knew in our hearts they would probably get their asses kicked. And they did.

Yeah, I was in the "hope" "stranger things have happened" and "damn it, it's high time Houston won one of these" train of thought. No REAL expectations of winning, though.

Lol exactly. Texans have won big primetime games, it just seems like the ones they have lost recently have been one sided...and you know the ones they've won has been one sided too. He pointed out two of the ones we lost but none of the big games we won...meh.

Were the Denver and Baltimore wins last year on prime time? I could have sworn those were either 4 pm or noon games. The one against Chicago was a night game.

Other than that (if you want to call that mud fest 1960's-esque game against Chicago a gem of an awesome win) what are the Texans other huge prime time wins?

All I can remember is the beating against Seattle, GB, and whatever fill in the blank team you want to name. I'm sure there are a few prime time wins the Texans have but I feel like the losses on prime time (and boy were they LOSSES and save me the "loss is a loss" fap fap fap) outnumber the wins by a decent margin.

Hoping Texans change that around this year finally! That article was funny though.

A win is a win.

When you've got one team that likes to control the clock & manage the whole game going against a team that likes to push the tempo & run up the score, you're going to get some ugly games.

Had we got on top of the Packers or the Patriots, it very well could have looked just as one sided our way. We weren't able to, I know.

But think about that when we give Wade so much credit for turning this team around. The offense drives everything. If the offense isn't doing what it needs to do, the defense will give up 41 points.


We have to score & we have to keep our guys rested. If we can't do that, it doesn't matter who our DC is. Not with the way the league is going.

On the stat column for W's and L's for sure, a win is a win and a loss is a loss. But it feels like we're trying to say (the generic "we're" obviously) that the Texans have these bunches of prime time wins and/or lopsided prime time wins. I feel like it's pretty lopsided in both the W and L stat on the Texans history in prime time games being losses not to mention what the score was in most of those losses.

"We" love to say "wow we beat the hell out of Denver and Baltimore...see....see...." but when the Texans get smoked it's "a loss is a loss". Which is what we kept trying to tell each other towards the end of last season when in reality sometimes a loss is a sign of what is wrong and things to come, not just a tick on the stat line.

Anyway, not trying to start that whole debate necessarily, just saying, I feel like not every single W and L is "just a W or L" you know.

Agreed on the offense though needing to pick it up. Someone please get Schaub some shields and guards for this season.
