Default Who's ready for some Texans football?

Traditionally, we start up one of these sorts of threads when it is around game day. So here goes.

Screw all the analysis. And the worries. I know it is the preseason, but the fans need to bring it and the team needs to bring it if we are going to get more primetime games.

I'm bring it here:

Vikings-Texans prediction time and a brief look at Texas history

Not only do I bust out the Gonzales Battle Flag but also Dimmit's Goliad Flag.

We need the Texans to kick some ass.

You ready? Let's make it happen.

Default Re: Who's ready for some Texans football?

I'm ready... It has been an agonizing couple of months sports-wise since the Astros began their death spiral, and way too long since the 2008 football season concluded.

I hope the Texans sack Brett Favre three times in the first quarter, causing Childress to yank him for safety reasons, hold Adrian Peterson to less than 50 yards rushing (so he also gets yanked, for safety reasons) and the Texans go on to win a close one 21-20.

The beer is iced, the 7 layer dip chilling, 9 hours to go till kick...

Digging the flag references. Me likey the history angle.

I can't be there tonight but I'll be pulling for y'all to be loud (when appropriate) as much as I'll be pulling for the team.

Here's to a great game that showcases the team, the city, the stadium, and the fans. Oh, and to a Texans win!

Oh. I thought it was so when the players mailed in a performance the fans could practice spinning it as the "right way" of doing things so as not to tip their hand for the regular season.

HEY!!!!!!! There's other threads for that reason and debate.

This sort of pregame thread is for totally emotional geeked up ready for football talk.

You know, stuff like, "Serve me the head of Brett Favre on a trident."

OK.

Seeing as I have Dre Johnson and Steve Slaton on my fantasy team, I'm ready for the Texans to start whipping up on everyone. Go get 'em and uh, Yee Hah.

I disagree. I think Drayton cares TOO much about winning. The problem with the Astros is that they are always in "win now!" mode, signing players that might get them a couple more wins that season, but essentially screwing them in the long run.

Sorry for temporarily hijacking this thread...

I don't care if we lose 88-3 as long as Dwayne Brown manages to keep Jared Allen from taking out Matt S for the next 2 months.

Here's what I posted on fb with a link to the MNF original theme song.

"Tonight the rising and talented Houston Texans take on the oldest man on the planet, Brett Farve and the nordic loving Vikings. Be sure to tune in, as during halftime Brett will recall what it was like playing against Moses. Also on the schedule is a high probability to see live in action, the one and only "Rosencopter" pirouetting to his heart's desire. This one is sure to not disappoint."

Those posters need their reps too! How else can we work on our hyperbole and absolute statements if we just dive right into the regular season?

Preseason football : everybody works hard here (except for Amobi Okoye)

I am grateful to Favre otherwise Sage would leave the game so despondent that he could do nothing against the Texans. Now, he will be able to say "Well, Brett did not do any better than me." On the plane ride home both of these fine QBs will be overheard discussing the retirement plans of both and their new "ouchies." Many of the players will be discussing the 3rd string QB who refused to go into the game "Are you kidding me? I would not look dignified with my rear end pointing at the sky. Those guys are tackling too hard." Adrain Peterson will be heard in the back ground., "What is my name? Someone tell the pilot to turn off that bell ringing so loud. WHere did those DTs come from?"
