Default 25 highlights of the decade

of course Texans related. Some "highlights", some not. Some may agree with them, some may not. Makes for good discussion. Feel free to add any of your own "highlights"(or "lowlights" for that matter)

Quote:
1. February 18, 2002: The team's very first draft choice was in the expansion draft, and setting a precedent that they would follow with most subsequent first round draft choices, they blew the pick. The very first pick of the Texans was Jacksonville Jaguars lineman Tony Boselli who was made available to the Texans because of shoulder injuries. He never played a game for the Texans.

2. April 20, 2002: And the Texans, continuing the precedent they set with Boselli, made David Carr the team's very first amateur draft pick. The pretty boy QB from Fresno State never stood a chance, primarily because he never had an offensive line or, except for Andre Johnson, any true targets to hand or pass the ball to.

3. But hey, it's not all bad memories. On September 8, 2002, the Texans played their very first regular-season game. And they defeated the hated Dallas Cowboys before a national TV audience. Unfortunately, for the most part, this is the signature moment of the franchise.

4. And let's not forget that, in 2004, Carr was named as one of People magazine's sexiest men alive.

5. David Carr, Jason Babin, Travis Johnson, Amobi Okoye, Duane Brown. All number one draft choices of the Houston Texans. All failures.

6. Andre Johnson and Brian Cushing. They're also number one picks of the Texans, but that's probably because a mistake was made and somebody not associated with the team made those picks.

7. And somehow the team screwed up and got Steve Slaton, DeMeco Ryans, and Owen Daniels in the lower rounds. Just like the players, management performs best when there's no pressure on them.

8. On April 28, 2006, the Texans ended the civil war that had erupted amongst fans arguing over whether the team should draft Vince Young or Reggie Bush. The announcement that the pick would be Mario Williams united the fans in disgust at Texans management.

9. December 24, 2006: The Houston Texans got an early Christmas present when they defeated the Indianapolis Colts 27-24. That's the only time the Texans have ever defeated the Colts, however. Career record versus the Colts is 1-15.

10. December 10, 2006: Vince Young scampers through the Texans defense to score the game-winning TD in overtime for the Tennessee Titans. And surprisingly, the fans were mostly happy.

11. The Texans invented some new colors: Battle Red, Liberty White, and Deep Steel Blue.

12. The "Liberty" in Liberty White is on account of the McNair's late dog, Liberty. Liberty was brown.

13. To distract the fans from the awful play, the team has six uniform combinations, all of them bad.

14. December 8, 2002: The Texans defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 24-6. However, the Texans only had 47 yards of total offense, and the offense scored only three points.

15. October 21, 2007: The Texans lose to the hated Titans 38-36 when Rob Bironas kicks his NFL-record eighth field goal with seconds remaining. What makes it more memorable is that Sage Rosenfels came off of the bench to lead the Texans to 29 fourth-quarter points.

16. October 5, 2008: Speaking of Rosenfels, this is the date of the infamous Rosencopter. The Texans led the Colts by 17 late in the fourth quarter. Three Rosenfels turnovers later, the Colts had the 31-27 win.

17. March 22, 2007: The Texans acquire a new savior by the name of Matt Schaub. He is, however, yet to lead anybody close to the promised land of the playoffs.

18. March 23, 2007: The former savior, David Carr, is dumped. The offensive line, however, still sucks.

19. September 25, 2001: One of the biggest days in team history as the name and colors are released after years of marketing studies.

20. January 2, 2005: Dom Capers, the team's original coach, is fired.

21. In February of 2008, Texans cheerleaders (and twins) Larisa and Marisa are featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.

22. Gary Kubiak is hired and promises Bob McNair he can win with David Carr. He can't.

23. Playoffs? Playoffs? At least the Texans have spared Houstonians the playoff humiliations of the Houston Oilers. Of course, the Texans have yet to actually make the playoffs.

24. For what it matters, the Texans have yet to actually have a winning season.

25. What's a winning season? The team's best ever record is 8-8, which they've done twice.

Geez, this is all so depressing. Even the *happy* highlights are finished with a depressed snide comment.

I didn't bother to go past number 2. Anyone keeping alive the bullshit myth that David Carr didn't stand a chance because of his line and lack of targets isn't worth reading or listening to. Actually I take that back. I did read further and he does have some points mixed in there with the fertilizer but that particular myth just always gets my goat.

I agree. What a hack job that was. All you need to do for an negative article like that is just filter the comments in this forum for about seven days or so, and reprint them. At least then you'd have some thought behind the comments.

It's okay. As Houstonians we have to be reminded on a regular basis about the lackluster quality of our journalism here, so we can learn to appreciate good journalism when it comes along.
