Default I'm Pumped!!!!!

I just started rooting for the TEXANS (am a former Jet fan who jumped ship). I've got my Demeco Ryans jersey, Texans shorts and a full array of snacks and beverages to settle in tomorrow and watch the Texans kick some Panther butt. I'm really excited. As a new fan what should I be looking for (other than a win)? I know the defense is young and awesome. What else should I know?

Things to look for...

Jerome Mathis on Kick-Off Returns
Jacoby Jones on Punt Returns
How quickly Matt Schaub gets rid of the football
How Andre Johnson tramples through the secondary
Mario gets at least 1 sack. My prediction, 1.5

Are you a Texans fan in New Jersey?

Actually I am a brand new Texans fan in Upstate New York (located in Bills Country). Have been a Jets fan for 30 years and finally had enough of that sick organization. I decided to become a Texans fan because they are an up and coming, exciting team and no one up hear roots for them. I ordered my Demeco Ryans jersey on Monday and it arrived Thursday. I'm excited! Looking forward to rooting for them tomorrow and forever!!!!!

Look for Dunta Robinson to put somebody bigger than him flat on their back.

Hope that Salaam and Ahman Green stay healthy.

Welcome aboard!

Owen Daniels could be a great TE in the making.

All offseason people have been saying that Andre Johnson is our only receiving threat and we have no #2 receiver. Look for Jacoby Jones and Kevin Walters to see if one of them can step up.

Our weaknesses at the moment are:
1. Safety where we've had a lot of injuries
2. Our #2 CB, Faggins, is a good nickel but we've got questions about him at #2. We've got a young kid, Bennet, that we're hoping is starting by the end of the season.
3. Our OL. Everyone loves to hate our offensive line. So keep an eye on how good or bad they play.
4. Our DL. Our defensive coordinator doesn't want to blitz. He wants our D-line to get pressure just rushing 4. Mario will bounce around from side to side; he's not a speed guy, he's a strength guy. Amobi is playing his second game and we're not sure how good he's going to be at holding the point. He's still SOOOOO young. Anthony Weaver has been injured and missed pre-season, he didn't do much in the Chiefs game.
5. Ahman Green. Is he washed up or does he have something left in the tank?

Welcome! I think maybe you have joined just in time. This might be the right time to be a Texan fan. I've been a fan since the NFL granted Houston a franchise in 1999. We have been through some low times but that will make the next few years that much special.

Thanks for the welcomes and well wishes. I'm really excited about this team, especially their young and aggresive defense. I already despise the "glittery" Cowboys.....who are the Tacks?

The Titans because they have a "Tack" in their logo. Not really but it looks like one.

I'd say it's because they're the tacky team of the NFL.

Welcome new Texan fan! Always glad to have another one. Get on these boards and talk some football! The guys here are pretty amazing at time.

The Titans are also known as the "meatballs!"

Not much LOVE in the hearts of most TEXAN fans for Dallas or Tenn. Welcome to the board!!

Yes it is. There is no room for VY worship as a true Texans fan. He plays for Bud. That makes him guilty by association. No self-respecting Houston fan would ever root for the Cowgirls either. Call us Titan and Cowboy bigots if you want. We wear the moniker proudly.

NICE ! Are you originally from here ? Good to see the team getting some support over seas .

I sent a friend of mine who I met online , a Demeco Ryans jersey and a hat . He in return , sent me a Manchester United jersey and hat . It was a pretty good trade .
