Sure there is. It's called TV ratings. We won't draw much nationwide.

I voted riot and burn the city. Hey, it would give the firefighters some action AND give the city incentive to clean up some parts of the city that really need it, not to mention be a whole lot of fun....win-win-win situation. Just no looting. That leaves a bad impression and it's just not right.

Won't riot here. To be honest, I hate waiting the extra 33+ hours. I want our team to get the respect and relevance that it takes to get a MNF game because that means they will have become a winning team that can win a big game. I am just not sure we are there yet.

I wouldn't turn it down but I am not gonna get bent if we don't get more than the obligatory exposure. Don't get me wrong, I love my Texans and we are close and could make a big jump this year due to our youth and continuity, but I really don't want it till were ready. Do we want another KC or Seattle embarrassment? Granted, we no longer have the scrub DC at QB, but our defense is still pretty much a sieve. The Broncos win was nice but that wasn't MNF or even SNF. Just win and everything gets taken care of.

Kornhole, Kiper, etc. and the rest of his Catskills pals that run ESPN don't like the Texans because they've still got egg on their faces for savaging them and their pick of Mario over their commercial propery little Reggie Bush back in '06 and looking amazingly foolish for it to this day.

The teams announced for MNF that had the same or worst record than the Texans are: Broncos, Raiders and Vikings. The other team is the Packers the only team with a winning record last year.

SO WHY NOT THE TEXANS!!!!!!!!

I would love to see an SNF game. I think the Raiders got one last season, so the Texans should be able to pull one out. Maybe at home against the Titans. That's always a big game.

aaah... sanity.
thank you.

Fact is, its got nothing whatever to do with standings. Its all about ratings; i.e., will we draw anyone outside of Houston? The honest answer is "no"...

We haven't been around long enough to have an established fanbase like the Giants or Steelers or Packers or Chiefs.
We're not filled with drama queens like Cincy or have a sob story (and I mean that in a nice way) like New Orleans. Nor do we have an owner who can't stand being out of the news for more than 5 minutes at a time like Jerry Jones or a crazy spendthrift guy like Al Davis or Daniel Snyder.
Heck, they couldn't even get Kubiak to give the hype mongers enough ambiguous quotes to start a Matt vs. Sage QB controversy
Nobody on suspension or coming off jail time


Face facts gang; Our boys just play hard and that's not very hype-able.

But our day will come.

....and soon.
cause Playoff games aren't on MNF but they are must watch TV. And given a choice, I'll take a string of playoff appearances over MNF.

The only time I recall they were on MNF they played the Bears. The Bears were the national draw. QB Matt Leinart was the AZ story line.
