Default Re: Espn???

ESPN is back to their usual ways with us...

So I've been watching and first I hear Ole Skip say "The Texans are forever going to regret taking Mario Williams over Vince Young."

Okay first off...Mario did excellent on sunday, so that just goes COMPLETELY ignored because Vince had a pretty good day too. Vince is about as consistent as Mario.

Second... the guy Always praises Schaub so much. So he is contradicting himself by saying that, because that means Schaub will fail if we are going to regret passing on Young.

Okay than on NFL Live, they go on to talk about the playoff race... so guess what...they literally assess each team in the race...when it comes to the Texans...nope. The only thing they say "and the Texans are with the 5-5 group with te Browns) yet they didn't even assess our situation like they did the other 6 teams...

ESPN just hopes we fail so they can brag about us not having Bush. They are mad because we didn't make Bush 'The One'. I have a feeling if we did, they would always praise us as "This team is going to be really good in the future." as it is we are just another team to them, and we are hardly ever mentioned.

I heard Emmitt Smith say the Texans will be the toughest team for the Broncos to beat with their remaining schedule on MNF, but lets look at this formula.... houston team + the south + mario over the other guys + expansion team + moronic hysterical east coast bias media coverage = no Texans love on big networks...This makes it all greater if we make the playoffs and the networks are forced to hype our games.

I'm sure they already had their script written and the video all ready to show how bad the New Orleans Bushes beat up on poor helpless Mario and the Texans. When that didn't happen they just didn't know what to say, so they said nothing at all. How many times have you watched ESPN only to hear them mention a player who hasn't been with the team for two season or IR for three weeks mentioned during their matchup section? I'm just pissed because this is all that we get in the military! I sure wish the Texans would snub ESPathetic when they are winning and contending.

Sounds like Emmitt was on to something. The greatest aspect of this win tonight is that ESPN and everyone is forced to acknowledge Super Mario, therefore, they will be forced to snack on some crow. Mario had an outstanding game on the only game of the night, so even with the mitchell report, PTI, around the horn and all the other bias hype machines will have to give Mario props.

They are not eating their crow so far.

I just watched 1st & 10 and they talked about Mario. Skip and that other guy Rob Parker or whatever the hell his name is.

The question was asked "Was Mario the right pick?" guess what...still not the right pick to them...why?

Skip says simply "You have to take the hometown guy." Really...so I wonder why we didn't take Addai? Or any other guys from Houston in the 06 draft. This excuse is lame because they are refusing to eat their crow. To Skips credit he did say after that "But it was between Bush and Mario."

The other guy...oh boy. He said we will regret this. He said VY is a franchise changer or whatever(compared him to Michael Jordan except Jordan literally carried his team and VY hampers them a bit). And Mario Williams IS NOT a Lawrence Taylor...he's right about that, Mario isn't a LB, i'm thinking Mario is more of a Reggie White.

He also said "We needed the ticket sales." wow what a 'expert' to completely ignore the Texans ticket sale history. He also said the its about winningand 500 isn't winning. Almost acts as if VY has everything to do with the Titans being 7-6 and like we don't lead the NFL in players on IR.

I'm tired of this notion that the QB position that is most important. All positions on the field are equally important IMO. A great Safety can make ALL the difference (ask the colts) a great LB can make all the difference, a great LT can make all the difference (ask the Browns, maybe THomas isn't great but he's pretty good) hell even a great FB can make all the difference in the world (Ask the Seahawks and Shaun Alexander).

These guys better hurry and eat this crow while its hot, its much harder to swallow when it gets too cold.

I still don't see how they figure we can sell more tickets than a sell out. We have sold out 59 games straight. That's every game in our history and in 2 weeks it's going to be 60 straight games.

So when the VY hype blows over and he doesn't pan out, whoes fault will it be. Norm Chow and the Titans or will ESPN say that not playing for his hometown team somehow scarred him and the Texans ruined him. I feel guilty already

Default Re: Espn???

Jim Rome just owned up to it. I don't prarticulrly like Romes' format, but I respect the guy for admitting he made mistake. Most of the ESPN guys are punks. They are becoming more and more illrelievant. They treat the football fans like crap. If you're not an all sport all the time guy, they'd just as soon dump you as placate you.

Outside of the live footbll games, the only show they have I want to see is NFL live. You'll notice there is never a set time to record the show. They always have games on that pushes the start time all over the place. So...either you have to be a fifeth avenue guy who can stop in the middle of the day to watch it in the afternoon or you don't watch it. So I got it Disney Sport channel. Put your finger away. I'm already shuffeling down the road. The don't do that to the baseball or basketball shows . Only football. There is a reason their market share is collapsing. It is a self inflicted wound. They'd rather go down the toilette than admit a mistake.

Lol at Around The Horn.

It wasn't even a topic up for discussion today...yet it was on EVERY OTHER show Around The Horn just decided to ignore it.

I just find that funny how every show has talked about it on ESPN, yet here comes Around the Horn and...what no Mario... I feel like Emailing those guys. Mario needs to go out and get about 2 sacks on Peyton in a win, doubters will shut up then.

Actually, I don't think he was too far off there. If the Texans put a litmus test on all season ticketholders and people entering the stadium had to be Texan fans, Reliant probably would be maybe 80% full or so.

Basically, what I am saying is, you are completely discounting the fact that a sizable portion of the ticket draw is related to the Texans opponent and that secondary market by ticket brokers.

Just because all the tickets are sold doesn't mean that they are all Texan fans. Factor out the opposing fans buying up tickets, the Texans have a hard to filling the house.

It still doesn't change the fact that the Texans have sold out tickets for 59 games in a row now.

It was a topic the day before. The question was "Do we owe Mario an apology?" ALL FOUR, Woody, Jay, the wingnut from Dallas (can't imagine why) , and the fourth guy gave a resounding NO for an answer. They said Houston still should have gone after VY. Reali (sp) was even a little shocked.
