As someone who was watching football since before you were alive and who can remember the Love Ya Blue era, who remembers when the Oilers with Campbell, Pastorini, Culp, Brazille, White Shoes, and Bum going against the Cowboys of Dorsett, Staubach, the two Pearsons, Martin, Too Tall, Hollywood, and Landry........THIS IS NOT A BIG GAME

How about this wording to make everyone happy.

For the fans, this game is meaningless. For the players (especially rookies and those otherwise just trying to make the team), it's a big game.

Nope, not good enough!!! This is a SuperBowl quailty game man!!! :hehe:


Its just a game, but its a "big" game because , for myself, I miss watching my Texans play and would like nothing more than to watch these guys do well for themselves and for our team. Oh and because I hate the cowboys, but that is strictly a personal and selfish reason.

Thank you. You got it! I've been to tons of preseason games and can't recall one single play in one single game.

Well, I can't completely agree that this game is meaningless to me and I'm a fan.

It's meaning is small of course but a win would provide the Texans fans with a year long "Talisman against rabid Cowboy trolls" which would be nice to have. It's not a "must have" since we can always bring out our "19-10, now go away" but I hate to over use that one so a preseason win would not be unwelcome.

Plus it's a chance to see the team on the field again. This has been one long bye-week and I'm ready for it to be over.

I really dislike pre-season ball but the game is an exciting development to me since this was the longest off-season ever. Bring on the games. Meaningless or not. It's football season.

There is a game on ESPN tonight as a heads up to you all.

I hope every one is healthy at the start of the season. I really think if we stay healthy the playoffs are with in our reach.
Bring it on...I'm sick of baseball. It's time for some hard hitting sport even if it's preseason.

I'm just bitter that I won't get to see any of it until mid-week next week--NFL Network won't broadcast it until Monday at 1:00 PM Eastern (?!) and I'll be outta town until Wednesday. I'm really eager to see some footage; reading about camp online is one thing, but watching players on the field will be much, much better. Sounds like the game could shed some light on some of the ongoing position battles.

Oh, and I don't give a rat's backside if we beat the Cowboys or not. Just please, please, pray that we have no Michael Vick/Anquan Boldin/Chad Pennington-type storylines come out of that game!!
