Not too much crap from my co workers when I go back after a loss (which is kinda surprising considering that I'm in Cowboys country). I think they just feel sorry for me. Plus, I tell it like it is. If we sucked, I admit it and don't make excuses.

I am always honest and acountable with my views on the game but i got a guy at work that can turn things around and get under my skin, Idont have to go through all the details but to sum it up its like when AJ goes against finnegan, finds a way to get under his skin no matter what

Out of genuine curiousity, is it possible your co-worker Cowboy fans lay it on because of Texans behavior after beating us or gloating about our every loss? Otherwise, I just don't get it. Being a die hard, and having met so many, I have seen either little interest in any team as far as smack talk other than Redskins, Eagles, Giants and Pittsburgh. However there is an significant number of fans that do genuinely wish the Texans success except when playing each other for real, not that pre-season stuff.

Mine aren't bad. They stay away from me after a loss but as the years go by and the losses pile up they've taken pity on me I think. Even the Cowboy fan in the office next to me is nice. She's also a Texans fan so it's not like she enjoys the loss either. She just has another team to follow to take the shame off.

They see the melancholy in your eyes grow as the greatest mediocre team in the league destroys your optimism with each thump of the podium.

I think a lot of it is that Cowboy fans here in SA dont care about the Texans one way or the other.

I get a ton of crap about being a Texans fan, and games like today are
exactly why. I have to play mind games to avoid discussion about a
royal collapse like today. This team STILL has yet to play a SINGLE
FOUR QUARTER GAME. Why did Kubiak stop running the ball down their
throat? Chris Brown, and Slaton were gashing them on the run all game
long, then, for no reason at all, no more run plays. I was Kubiaks
biggest apologist, but after today, I don't care what happens to him
in Houston anymore.

Just keep reminding him that it's nice to win games in the regular season, but as long as the Cowboys continue to NOT win playoff games they're not better than us. As a matter of fact, that has to be more frustrating going 13 and 3 or 11 and 5 and still not winning in the playoffs.

Naturally your co-worker will throw in the 5 Super Bowls argument, but just remind him that this league is always going to be a "what have you done for me lately". No Texas team has done squat lately.

And if he brings up the Colts game, tell him that beating the Raiders is about as automatic as it gets. Even the best Cowboy fans were not sure if they'd be able to dominate them after their past few games.

Just my two cents.

It isn't the co-workers, it is the smart-arse 8th graders I teach that can't wait for my class on Monday mornings. (Really bad today, since we just came back from the holiday break and they have 2 losses to tease me about).
