Yeah it obvious to me the national media is setting us up to be a Cinderella team.

I try to ignore guys who are shameless enough to where fake dreads. I am not saying I don't like them. I just don't take them seriously.

I find it hard to believe that a team that has ONLY been around for 2 years can *always* be anything. We improved in so many areas last year, even though it wasn't reflected in the win / loss columns.

We shocked everyone with our opening win over Dallas.
We STUNNED the Dolphins into submission.
We took the Super Bowl champs to the last 41 seconds of OVERTIME.

Let them talk...our guys thrive on it and can get the job done!

Ditka has always seemed like a very bitter person to me . To sat that we have no chance for a long time to come is just another sad attempt for him to try and be a harda** .

Thought I'd aide in the Ditka hating by putting a few pics I found of 'Da Coach'.

Those pics are hilarious esp. the wedding one. I can't believe Williams wore the bride's dress. If he only had longer hair he would look like Serena Williams.

I just saw the segment. It was "fact or fiction" and the question was simply, "do the Texans win 6 games"? Ditka never said some of the things I read here. SS took the "fact" and Ditka took the "fiction". All he said was we didn't plug our holes and won't win the 6 games and we will be at the same level as we were last year. If you don't like Ditka just revel in the fact that he is wrong and we can likely prove it. Some of us are kinda stretching the truth about what he is saying aren't we? That is about as weak as his insight.

^ I really don't think that means much. A team in the NFL is capable of winning any game...even if we beat the Patriots that doesen't mean anything, it means we had a good game. We could have games like that for years, most teams are inconsistent, thats why they have bad records all the time. Sometimes they win a big game, but they can't keep consistent. If we can keep it consistent winning, and then lose 40-0 to the Superbowl champs, I'd be happier.

Mike Ditka's opinion doesn't matter to me nor does anyone elses who don't think the Texans will do much of anything this year. It will be all that much sweeter when the season is over. I'm not saying playoffs but definitely 7-9 or better. We'll have some tight games but I think several of our wins will be by a larger margin than the ones we barely got away with last year. We'll show that we can be a dominating force in each game. Our consistency will improve a great deal this year and as long as Carr has time to get the ball to our receivers and his accuracy has improved we'll have a ground and air attack among the top 15 in the league. I don't think there's anyone on our schedule that will take us lightly.

Da Coch' is there for entertainment value. He's a coloful figure much like Neon (Dieon) and they have a lot to say and it doesn't really matter if it's accurate. Winning six games is not a Gimmee, but ole ChicagoTexan thinks 7 or 8 games can had.

Ditka not only took the fiction but he also said the Texans are going nowhere and would continue to go nowhere. He did not simply take the fiction and say it may take a little longer for the Texans to develop. He siad the Texans continue to use stop Gaps. Which makes absolutly no sense. The Texans continue address their holes with young talented men that they intend to hold down the positions for years to come. Not some has been who used to be a great player who is past his prime. The team that uses stop gaps is the Raiders. Ditka does not like a team stockpiled with talent he wants a bunch of people who are blue collar type guys. He assumes that the talented guys don't have good work ethic and that is what hurt the Saints. He took a shot at the Texans management. The fans need to tell him where to go.

I believe Ditka's exact words were something along the lines of "You know the train to nowhere? That's where they're going" referring to the Texans. I don't put much value in color commentary either, but in Ditka's case he went beyond just being wrong. He openly insulted the team. Trey Wingo, who isn't an analyst but merely an ESPN guy, reminded both 'The Steak' and 'Da Coach' that the Jags nearly beat the Panthers last year, but no mention of the Texans actually beating them. Even though that was wrong it was not an insult. Therefore no "Trey Wingo doesn't like the Texans" thread. I'm all for color comentators, and I don't put much value on any of them. However, when their commentary goes from wrong to insulting that is where I draw the line.

I saw it late last night, and it just made Ditka look ridiculous.

If any team had faith in Ditka's abilities, he'd still be coaching. I don't remember Capers or Casserly spending their draft day practicing their golf swings - this season or any season.

You guys are wasting a lot of energy on a guy who has probably never seen a Texans highlight in his life and probably couldn't name two Texans players. Who cares what Ditka thinks. Who cares what Salisbury thinks. Both are egomanic blowhards. I will listen if Clayton or Jaworski have something to say. Both of those guys take time to do their homework.

You really can't blame Ditka, it sounds like he is just running low on his Levitra.

Default Dick Butkus' comments?

If anyone saw Ditka on sportscenter they will know what i'm talking about. He said, and I almost quote. "The Texans will not win 6 games this year because they they didn't do anything in the offseason to improve". Not only did he say that he praised the Jaguars for being the best up and coming team this year. I'm sorry but he obviously didn't do his homework. Any Thoughts?

I think you're talking about Mike Ditka...not Dick Butkus. It might help your arguement to get the name right...
