Default Has it hit you yet?

The offseason hangover? No more Texans for awhile, 6 months until training camp, 3 months until the draft.......it really hit me this morning, I had a dream last night about the Texans in the playoffs and woke up to nothing. Ah well, here's to next season and the time in between.

The NFL offseason is torture ! As Malloy said , after the SB when theres no football at all , thats when it really sets in . Then its that little over a month till baseball season thats really a bizznitch ! College basketball and the NBA just don't do it for me . This up coming Astros season may not be any fun either . But hey , at least its baseball !

It hit me last weekend when I was sitting around with my so called friends (Titans fans) and watching the playoff game between the Chargers.
Sucks, because all of my friends are either: Packers, Giants, Cowboys, Patriots, and Titan fans. And then there's little ole' me, lost.

Anyways, had some self gratification though....during the Chargers/Titans game my three Titan friends were sitting with me outside at the big screen at the local bar. Inside there was a lone Charger fan. I went up to the Charger fan and told him evertime the Chargers score, I'd buy him a jager shot if he did a lap outside screaming with his hands in the air behind my Titan friends.
He agreed.

It was wonderful, and well worth the money.

Same with me. The Pro Bowl is like my last gasp for breath though. The NBA usually carries me over to the summer though. During that time, free agency and the draft happen. The bad thing is though, I woke up this morning thinking there was going to be a Texans game tomorrow. I kept thinking about who we were going to play, then remembered...

The 3 year mark is usually a measuring stick for a new coach,etc in this league. And due to our recent draft history and the moves we have made under this crew (Gibbs the latest fantastic move)... there is no reason for us not to continue this trend, make good decisions, and really put us on the NFL map for good starting next year imo.

Its kind of weird... its like we have finally made it back to where we were after that 7-9 season a few back. A "take it to the next level" feeling so to speak. That seems like eons ago. Unfortunately that didnt work out as we all expected. Actually, now that I think about it.... after filtering out that team for the most part and rebuilding... I would not change anything and feel that if this all comes together it will be all that more worth it in the end. We are building something special imo... and these next 6 months will be very crucial.

Here is to an exciting off season!!!

Tes and no. Yes because my team is not in the playoffs. No because playoffs are going on and I am getting Free Agent list ready, and doing draft chart and looking at what the Texans need. I have to do something to keep me occuspied sports wise until Baseball season. I am sorta paying attention to college basketball but not like I used to and I am not into pros hardly at all, I will check box scores is about it.

Default Re: Has it hit you yet?

Agreed. I want them to play 30 games a season instead, and give the teams a 150mil$ limit and a 80 player roster. Soccer players play almost all year around, 3 games a week and although American football is somewhat different, the endurance side of it is still the same.

So, longer seasons, more money and more players!

Maybe it's just me, but I never could get into car racing of any type. It's like golf to me, better doing it than watching it I suppose.

Probably. I raced on the local tracks in Seattle in the late-90s.

Nah, until there is no Pro football on TV to watch...the season is still a go.

Now I have time to focus on my cheesehead fascination. Whoop them ospreys!

I'm good until after the SB. I'm not a fool about baseball, but I enjoy March Madness. With any luck, will start around then but Feb - August is a much, much longer time than Aug - Feb.
