I'm sorry but what was this thread about

I sure hope that the learning curve applied to the pros is not applicable to the fans as well otherwise I would be
  • 2002 David Carr
  • 2003 Andre Johnson
  • 2004 Vince Wilfork
  • 2005 Thomas Davis

the first two picks by the Texans are no brainers being that they where the #1 & #3 picks overall and both have proved to be vindicated.

the lower the pick the more room there is for contradiction. with all the injurys to the defensive line in the 2nd year my idea was to grab a perfect 3-4 nose tackle from Miami to fill in the hole. as it turned out the Texans made a better pick and selected rising star Dunta Robinson. then this past year I really wanted DeMarcus Ware but he was scooped up by the Cowboys with the 11th pick, I remember distinctly it seemed, everyone was holding their breath for DJ, and I too was shocked that the Texans traded down, not so much as they passed on DJ however but that they passed on Thomas Davis who would make an outstanding NFL strong safety & add a pass rusher. the jury is still out on this one but since the Texans really needed to address their interior defensive line and did not in 2004 I think Travis Johnson was the best selection, again I have no complaints with the Texans 1st rd picks.

if y'all want to open up the 2nd/3rd or what could have been the Texans 2nd/3rd thats a whole can of worms that is nothing more than a waste of time and effort, because whats done is done & there is nothing more to do than go forward and embrace the situation as it stands & support the Texans orgainization, from the top down to the bottom & hope for a winning season

Glass houses my friend...

I recall a certain team that thought Rob Johnson was going to be a star QB in the NFL and picked him up in 98 or so. Wonder what team that could be?

Neither is better or worse. We are shareholders in this company and have the right to point out the good and bad. Fans with negative comments about the team are no less fans. Personally, I have not missed a single snap since 2002 and have given thousands of dollars to this organization, so when something is being done incorrectly (imo) I have the right to point it out. I encourage others to do the same. There are way too many apologists on this board whose idea of being a fan is to argue that everything is being done perfectly.

Where exactly did the term homer come from? Is it negative? It seems so, because people always get defensive when they are called homers.

homer is a negative term.

when a fan is so blinded by his passion for his team that he refuses to accept anything negative regarding that team be it true or false he is a homer.

example:

when the cowboys went 1-15 i still knew the occasional knuckle head at work who was convinced they were well on their way to the superbowl that year (despite being mathmatically eliminated).

on the contrary...

when the cowboys make the playoffs, cowboy fans conviently show up out of the shadows. all of a sudden those 2 fans down the street multiply into 5. and all of them tell you theyve been lifelongers who were with the team during the good and the bad....this would be a bandwagoner (or fairweather fan).

this to is a derrogitory remark.

the texans to date have had limited success and so we've never had a huge bandwagon of fans. (when we make the playoffs this will change).

HOWEVER, as a substitute for bandwagoners we've been blessed with something far more annoying...

chicken littles. (drama queens.)

chicken littles tend to only exist in the fanbase of teams whove never had a lot of success. (you wont find a new york yankees chicken little). "chic lil's" tend to magnify everything negative about their team in some twisted attempt to :

a. recieve sympathy from other fans

b. demean the coach and or players to unseat them from the team in a fruitless effort to become a part of the team themselves.

c. they are closet masochist and their urges manifest themselves in sports and all over this message board.

all three of these "chic lil" versions exhibit unstable and unpatient behavior. in the span of a single play they can cross a full spectrum of emotions from ecstatic to suicidal hysteria. if this sounds vaguley familiar ask yourself...how long did that suicidal hysteria last? did it last long enough for you to dial up...log on...write a typically incoherent post and then share it with everyone else here? if so...you may be suffering from this tragic sports disease. your life is not over...put the razor down! seek imediate medical attention or simply wait for the regular season to begin...chances are the texans will not finish 1-15 no matter what the voices in your head tell you.

what type are you? a,b, or c?

and as always there is an exception to the rule...the worst version of a "chic lil" is the "d" version. how can anything possibly be worse then the afforementioned sports disorders? "d version chic lils" are not infact fans of the team. they're trolls from other teams who frequent foreign sports boards in an effort to kill a fan base enthusiasim.

do you think theres a chance you might be a "d version chic lil" ?

ask yourself...have you contributed anything worthwhile to the board...or have you methodically killed another fans intrest in the sport by convinceing him the houston texans apocolypse is upon us...did you do it with a smile on your face?

repent.

That is quite possibly one of the funniest things ever written on this board. I thank you for your insight and humor. One more question, how exactly did homer simpson become the face of an overly optomistic fan who doesn't see the real world?

Porky, I believe you will remember I was pretty unhappy when we gave up so much to get Babin, but he didn't have a bad rookie season, so I have decided to give it time to play out. At the time Capers thought the defense needed that impact rush OLB, and obviously thought that, with Babin still there at the 27th spot, it would be a good time to go get him.

The decision to go get PBuch was an extension of the staff deciding it wanted to go with youth and speed at some of the defensive positions. It was natural, after deciding to move Wong back to ILB, and to go get Greenwood for the other MLB spot, to also get younger and quicker at the LCB spot, thus the decision to go after PBuch. These moves too, can only be judged with time. So lets let it run its course (for this season at least), and see where it will lead. Lets sit back and see how the situation helps, or hinders, the future development of this team into the playoffs.

hehe.. nice pic.

I think the term ACTUALLY originated with another word that starts with "hom".. and got shortened to homer because it is more acceptable.

Basicly because you are so in love with your team its a borderline erotic obsession.
