Default Some positive words about the Texans from SI

Quote:
With all due respect to Cougars quarterback Case Keenum, an elite college team should only lose to one team from Houston: the Texans.

Wow.

We're now THAT team.

How did I ever fall for it? I mean, I'm that guy who sees an oasis in the desert and starts running for it with all my might...only to dive into the ground and start gulping the dry grains of sand.

I've got those "Bad NFL Team Blues."

I need a good Nicholas Cage movie to get me out of this funk. I'm thinking Captain Corelli's Mandolin or Kiss Of Death. Actually, Kiss Of Death would be better because it's a double dipper: Nick Cage AND David Caruso.

Now all I need is one of those microwavable NightHawk salisbury steak dinners, and some heroin. And then it's back onto the road of recovery for this gentleman! (sounds of weeping)...

I would actually take a slap in the face at this point.

Instead of getting slapped in the groin every Sunday at 12:00 p.m. Central Time.

Listened to Mike & Mike this morning....Chris Mortensen thinks its worry time for the Cardinals, Panthers, and Texans....his segment was brief, but he talked about the Texans problems they had all summer. Look for a change if it doesn't get better.

We've been passed up by Kevin Sumlin.

Default Re: Some positive words about the Texans from SI

I took it as a reference to the Coogs losing to Rice last season and how an elite college team wouldn't do that although an elite college team would lose to an NFL team. That's not a slap in the face to the Texans, but a shot at UH.

So many theories.

Here. This is your slap-in-da-Texans-face from SI's Don Banks....
Quote:
• If you love stats, Matt Schaub can be your guy. But when it comes to winning the games you're suppose to win, Schaub is not among the league's elite quarterbacks. And anybody who tells you he is, is misinformed.

• Easy pick for my frauds of the week. It's the Texans. A perennial chic pick to finally make the playoffs, Houston laid a total egg at home against the Jets, scoring no points on offense, and producing just 11 first downs and 183 total yards. And what is it about Gary Kubiak's club in September? They're 2-9 in the season's first month in his four seasons, with six consecutive losses.
I've been skeptical all along that Houston is headed for a breakthrough year. I'm more dubious than ever after watching the Texans' efforts in Week 1. They richly deserved those late-game boos that rang out throughout Reliant Stadium.

Isn't it more amazing how many fans have come out of the woodwork all of a sudden when they've had a long established repeating pattern since 2004 and another preseason to boot, to say this?
