I watched part of the game on TV (I was at the Seahawks - Bills game yesterday) and was pleasantly surprised when the Texans won (especially after having been down 21-3).

Speaking of attitude changes, the Titans board went through this as well. Just in the opposite order. They went from downright cockiness to crying and whining and cussing and "fire the" "cut". Your team showed a lot yesterday.

Funny strange, not funny "Ha-Ha".
yeah, I agree. There just seemed to be a lot of empty seats and a whole lot of silence in the first half of the game. I thought maybe half the fans were still out of town for Thanksgiving.

We yell from the very first defensive stand until the end, and I think we may have been the only ones in section 520 that wanted to make any noise. We even had some fans turning around looking at us like we were crazy or something. First time that I've gotten the "silent stare" from fellow Texans fans about supporting our defense. Maybe it was hurting their hangover headaches?

And I noticed a real absence of Titans fans this game. During the past couple of years, there have always been quite a bit of Titans jerseys at our home games. But I saw maybe 2-3 yesterday, which is nice. True bandwagon fans, I'm sure they'll make their return during the next winning season for Tennessee.

I am really glad the Texans won. We needed that one bad. I have to say though I'm still no Palmer fan and I'm still worried about our offense. We played against a defense that was missing a whole lot of starters. The defensive line was missing A. Haynesworth and had 2 rookies starting. The free safety and strong safety were both out. One of their starting cb's was out. Their starting lolb was also out. It should never have been that close with all those players out, on our home turf, and the players we have on offense. Don't jump on me about being negative because I'm not. I'm just cautioning you that this was an injury riddled defense kind of like us last year.
