Default "That's Good for a Houston Texans... First Down!"

I had a conversation yesterday about the "first down" call by the announcer at the games, and I am predicting that it will not happen under Bill O'Brien.

I am 100% certain that O'Brien will disagree with the announcer making that call while his offense is working, but it remains to be seen if the Texans marketing team will defer to the Texans football team.


Thoughts? I really hope they kill it, personally.

Always thought it was silly and contrived. Getting a first down in the NFL these days is not a big deal.

Good... only time you need to be celebrating something offensively is when touchdowns are being scored and game winning field goals. Time to start thinking bigger and better. Oh shucks attitude can destroyed and buried in the dirt.

It doesn't really bother me. I kind of like that it keeps some of the fans involved in the progress of a drive.

My friends in Austin who root for other teams think the cheer is lame, which is precisely why I yell it as loud as I can at them in the bar.

My Buddy Tom who hangs with me hanging with the Blue Crew when he wins the drawing for tickets that week, HATES IT! Which is why pull a Brisco County and scream as loud as I can and of course gotta finish with the arm swing & point "first down signal".

Yeah, he hates it...

Default Re: "That's Good for a Houston Texans... First Down!"

I remember that particularly goofy feeling when the announcer would do it in the 4th quarter of blowout games that the Texans were losing.

Especially during that first 2-14 season and there were only 5,000 fans in the stadium.

It had a very corporate checklist vibe about it, like no matter how the game is actually going, this is what we do when the team gets a first down.

That said, it is so ingrained into many of us that we even do it at home while watching the games. Even my little girl does it, and she's never been to a game.

I think O'Brien might have a bit more pull here than in NE. If he has his way, I'm sure it will be gone. The question is, will they give him his way?

Between that and Vandemeer's "rock 'n' roll" on TDs, we have the lamest set of offensive celebrations in NFL History.

The KC Chiefs stadium announcer does it too, and I'm pretty sure it continued during the Romeo Crennel days. According to my brother (Chiefs season ticket holder, and frequent attendee at Kansas State games), the Chiefs stole it from the Wildcats. While I'm sure that's true, I'm thinking the Wildcats stole it from someone else first.

I hate it as much as I hate the dumb Clay Walker song.

I bet O Brien will hate it as well, but I doubt if it goes anywhere. O Brien could probably overrule marketing if he wanted, but I don't see this as being something he'd worry about.

We should go totally shameless and create a cheer for false starts by the opposing team. The stadium could play Start Me Up by the Stones. That would be hilariously lame.
