Default MSNBC: A budding dynasty in Houston?

Quote:
Not that long ago, Texan success had to be measured in less than victories. It was cause for celebration when the quarterback didn’t get sacked.

That’s the single biggest difference between the Texans of old and the Texans of the last two weeks. New quarterback Matt Schaub is getting rid of the ball, not holding it like former quarterback David Carr, inviting disaster and usually finding it. The offensive line that has given up two sacks in two games is the same offensive line that played most of last season, when it gave up 43 sacks with Carr under center.

Last week, Carr watched from the Carolina sideline as Schaub went without a sack against a Panthers’ defensive line heralded as one of the best in the league. Down 14-0 early, the Texans reeled off 34 straight points on the road. They had never scored more than 31 in their first five years in existence.

Nice story and all, but let's get to .500 first and foremost and then challenge for the playoffs.

Dynasty, just a tad premature

Exactly.

I mean, I know we're great and I expect us to kick some butt this year, but I didn't expect people to take us from ranked in the bottom quarter of the league to the upper half of the league after two freaking games.

Then again, we really did look dominating against the Panthers.

Wow the bandwagon filled up quicker than I thought . I'm not gonna get too excited yet . If we lose to Indy , we could possibly be 6-1 heading into SD . Then I would be excited and have a strong feeling of confidence , I still wouldn't be thinking dynasty though . After a couple of seasons with 11-12 wins and a Conference Championship appearance , that would get me thinking future dynasty .

Dear God!

They win 2 games, and y'all act as if they are going to ascend into a higher plane of existance.

God forbid they do the unimaginable on Sunday and lose. Some of you will need to put on suicide watch.

Apparently you didnt catch the sarcasm in that post, I do love what they have done to date but they are a long way away from being the greatest ever.

Calm Down there Marcus just having a little fun.

I enjoyed reading that quite a bit. It's nice to see Mario in conjunction with performances that make people forget VY & RB(although RB is doing enough on his own to make him forgettable). The dynasty talk is WAY premature, but like has been said on here MANY TIMES, good play and victories=respect in the media and NFL.

Its amazing how the national press is singing our praises all of a sudden. I knew they'd jump on the bandwagon some day, but after two games...wow. Its nice to have good attention focused on the team, but I don't want them to jinx us. I like the underdog role.
