Default Overheard on ESPN Radio

Driving home from the sports bar here in Austin today, I overheard the following on ESPN Radio...and I am paraphrasing...

Andre Johnson played with a lot of energy...and that transferred to the defense....Kubiak has something really special goin' on down there with the Houston Texans.
OK. Stop right there. I don't know who the guy was who said it, but I'm relatively sure it was not Michael Smith, the only ESPN dude to say something positive about the Texans in the pre-season.

So, all you bandwagoners at ESPiN...don't bother. We don't need your help.

Michael Smith -- your thoughts are welcome anytime.

Shannon Sharpe on CBS's halftime dog and pony show was pronouncing Kubiak the "Coach of the Year."

For once, I agree with Sharpe.

Yeah, its just two games and all but day-umn.

I believe that was Ditka.

Prior to the game, Jaworski and Ditka were already on the Texan's bandwagon.

This team has been so bad for so long , its gonna take a while to get their dues . You KNOW that when they do take off and start being a consistent team , there will be those "experts" that will jump on the bandwagon faster than Micheal Irvin on a crack rock .

Merril Hodge just said he liked Houston...to be fair though he was high on Schaub and said he thinks that Schaub could turn us around.

On Football Night in America, the question was which team can come out of nowhere to make a big run. The options were Packers, Niners, and Texans.

Tiki Barber took us. Bettis took the Pack and Collingsworth took the Niners.

Mark Tiki down for a position near the front of the bandwagon.

A lot of people in the media are eating crow. It's been strange to hear the talking heads say "The Texans look great!" I'm watching every highlight show just to hear them. They have no choice but to talk about how great the Texans look since we stomped the Panthers and they were all praising the Panthers after their win last week.

I like the good rep. I think it helps the confidence in the locker room. A little good press is great for the players who probably have never heard one good word about the Texans.

yeah, I'm waiting for Kiper to come out singing the Texans' praises. Apparently, we "did not address our offensive line" in the last draft. Hmm, maybe we did not need to. Maybe our line began maturing last year. Maybe the problem was at QB all along?

Things that make you go, "Hmmmmm." <queue the music>
