41-38, the comeback.

as an old oiler fan that has stuck with the franchise, this loss doesn't even come close to that debacle.

Oilers loss to Bills in the playoffs. I was like 8 at the time, and even then I remember exactly where I was and the heartbreak I felt from that game.

In my memory definitely...but this one can die down when things change. (IF anyway).

If Mario can prove his doubters wrong and we find solutions at QB and RB this will blow over, although we might still be stuck with obnoxious fans twice a year from our own city.

I doubt this beats the Buffalo game everyone talks about as far as longevity.

This is worse than the Bills playoff loss. At least we were in the SB derby watching some future hall of famers and variety of Pro Bowlers go down in a playoff game as they were the one of the best teams in the league. Today said a lot about this franchise.

Most of what was said involves the 'fans'.

I would say the playoff loss to the Bills. We had so much talent on that teams, and the Bills were considered our last major roadblock to the super bowl. To lose in that way was devastating. I hate Bud Adams for taking the Oilers away after we came back to support the team after that debacle.

I still cringe anytime they play that game on espn classic.

This loss makes me angry, but in the end it's still a regular season game. It only proves that our front office and our owner don't know what they are doing.

Default Re: The Darkest Day for pro football in Houston

To my mind the worst day in Houston football history has to be the day that Bum Phillips was fired. It was far worse than the Buffalo comeback. Today doesn't even register in comparison.

When the Oilers were in the AFL nobody cared. When the AFL and NFL merged they stunk and nobody liked them. Somehow when Bum Phillips began collecting his players and then toppped it off with Earl Campbell the Oilers became "right". Now granted they did not make it to the Super Bowl in that era but they were arguably better than both teams that the Steelers beat to get their 78 and 79 titles.

When Bud Adams fired Bum Phillips he broke that. Whatever it was that Bum & Co had "fixed" about the Oilers was again broken and at least in my opinion it never really got fixed again. The city loved the team and then Bud fired Bum and the city (for the most part) took Bums side. From that day forward The affection directed at the Oilers was always tempered with some distrust for their owner.

It really didn't surprise me that the Texans lost a close game. This has been the Texans mo for the past 2 years. When its all said and done, this game will be replaced in our minds by yet another VY comback against the Texans next year, while Buffalo will last forever.

Hands down Buffalo

I donno, this management team openly stated that they didn't want to draft Young because they didn't want to "start over". I mean, come on. When are we going to be a franchise that is able to scout NFL talent and acquire the ability to know what they have in their players? I mean, they didn't even announce their players because they wanted to protect David? Geez - all time low for me following a team.....hard to top today.

I agree there....it looks like we're going to be starting over at QB regardless. I don't hate the MW pick and I hope he keeps improving, but the offense is not on the upswing right now by any means. Maybe when some guys are back on the OL Carr will "improve" enough that we will get by, but his decision making is way too slow and robotic. Unless they can stun gun his brain and start all over, an improved OL isn't going to make him progress through his reads faster.

Whenever a town/city/etc loses a team because an owner wants to move them on to better pastures it has to be a low and dark day in a franchise's history. If the fans and attitude don't change in and around Houston with the Texans in 2 seasons, you will see it happening again... that would then classify as the darkest day for Pro Football in Houston!

the (good Houston) Oilers were the renfro team(s). the immensely talented team that choked against buffalo was not a part of our soul. the (enron Houston) texans will never be. nothing will ever hurt as much as losing to pittsburgh with "our" guys did.

besides, losing in denver hurt worse than in buffalo. the team that lost in denver was the best houston team ever, in terms of talent.

oh, and while we're here, the greatest moment in houston pro football history was winning the playoff game in san diego with our backups. many of you are too young to remember this.

As bad as yesterday was, it will never (and I pray nothing ever will again) compare to the lose to Buffalo.

Biggest comeback in history.
Team could have gone far in the playoffs.
Lose to a Backup

The list that makes it the worst goes on and on.
