Cleveland had lost the previous Browns to Baltimore who went on to win the Superbowl.
Houston lost the Oilers who had the Titans go to the Superbowl.

Both teams continue to struggle, but at least the Browns made the playoffs in I believe the 3rd year, while the Texans continue to find ways to break our hearts.

Great way to sum it up. It was as if we played two games on Sunday and lost both of them.

PS Just freakin sick is all I can say.
You are absolutely correct. I saw it too. It went down to 3...held 3 for a bout 3 second and then went to 40, all before they snapped the ball. I can't remember what drive it was, but it was very late in the game....don't think it was the last drive, but it felt like it?

What have we done to deserve this?

Well, I have a confession to make that may very well answer the question.

Week 1 vs. Chefs: I wore a #90 authentic and my son wore his old DD/DW jersey. I utilized the small rubber chickens (here forward known as the rally chickens) to urge on the team. Texans kick tail.

Week 2 vs. Panthers: I wore my #90 authentic and my son wore his old DD/DW jersey again. The rally chickens were in full effect and the Texans played inspired ball as we topple the Carolina Bangin' Hairdoos.

Week 3 vs. Colts: I was late to turn the game on because I had to put up a new mailbox. I bust out my #37 sometime in the 2nd and the son loses interest. He wears normal clothing during the game. The rally chickens show up but there is no fire in their little plastic bellies. Texans play tough, but come up short.

Week 4 vs. Falcons: No jerseys. No chickens. No win.

Week 5 vs. Inept Sea Mammals: Downstairs AC is out. I bust out the #90 authentic anyway. Hogtie the sweaty 4-year-old and put his jersey on him. Rally chickens and sweat fly everywhere in the 90 degree living room and the Texans win on a "is he using HGH?" kick from KB.

Week 6 vs. Jaguars: No jersey. No chickens. No win.

Week 7 vs. Tight 'Uns: Upset by last week's efforts, I pout like a petulant child and leave the jersey in the closet. Break out the rally chickens with a vigor in the second half and the Texans almost pull out the win.

Okay. What have we learned so far?

No jerseys, no chickens = no win.
Some of one, none of the other = tough loss
Jerseys on drewmar74 v1.0 and 3.0 + rally chickens = win

So, I deeply apologize to Texan Nation for my lack of discipline with regards to my gameday apparel and that of my son. Oh, and for my lack of focus when it comes to the rally chickens. The 4 losses are obviously my fault and I apologize.

Well.

Now that we've got that straightened out...

CHAMPIONSHIP!

What the heck are you doing? You better be wearing that #90 and better put that kid of yours in his DD/DW jersey ASAP. Wear them all week if you have to!

i also have to come clean: (not as diehard but still strange)

Week 1: follow the game religiously over the internet

Week 2: follow the game religiously over the internet

Week 3: away at a soccer match.. missed the whole game

Week 4: away at a soccer match.. missed the whole game

Week 5: Watched the game live on tv

Week 6: away at a soccer match.. missed the whole game

Week 7: away at a soccer match.. swear to god, got home midway through the 3rd quarter and got the rest of the game over the internet..

i didnt think much of it up till sunday but its getting too coincidental.. so now damnit im going to make sure i get home from our away soccer matches on time..

apologies to all.. 12-4 here we come!

So two weeks in a row the refs do not know how to tell time or count. I have never seen that two weeks in a row.

OK well at least I was imagining things.
