Default Which win is more important to you?

I know the Colts game is the first game of the season and they are a division rival, but I know alot of us have friends that are cowboys fans and that you will argue over this game till it's over.

So I want to know whats more important to you that we beat our top division rival or that we beat the cowgirls for a win and bragging rights with our cowgirl buddy's.

Colts.

I dislike the Cowgirls as much as the next guy, but I just can't muster up enough giveadamn to care about that game like I care about division games. The South Oklahoma Cowgirls just aren't important enough to rank any higher than 7th on our schedule (6 division games).

As much as I want to beat the Cowboy's, if I could only pick one I have to go with the Colt's I really want this team to advance this year.

Default Re: Which win is more important to you?

If we actually beat the Colts week one, I'm so much less worried about the Cowboys it's not even funny. It's just really difficult to call a game against an NFC team as important as a divisional game against an opponent we beat as often as Richard Justice makes an intelligent remark about football.

It was close for me. I want the division, but I'm also bringing a cow girls fan with me to the game. I want to watch him cry. hehe

OK, so here's the deal. Important to ME? To me it's the Cowboys. I hate the Cowturds.

Now, more important for the Texans, it's the Colts, and it will always be the Colts.

I know the difference here, I'm just saying..........

I feel exactly the same way. The fact that the Colts have perennially kicked the Texans' asses (1-15 all time record) and are a division rival makes that game much more important to me than having bragging rights over the Cowboys fans I know.

I concur.

My main reasoning for leaning towards the Cowboys is that everyone I know is a Cowboy fan and it's time to shut them up if only for 60 minutes.

Easy no contest. Beating the Colts atleast once is almost a must

Default Re: Which win is more important to you?

I understand why everyone wants to beat the colts as far as what it would mean to the us in the division, but there are still 2 wild card berths to be had in the AFC if we don't beat them in our 1st game. If we beat the colts the 2nd time around & we sweep our other division opponents we are still in play for the division & the playoffs.

On the other hand, losing to the cowboys would mean not only another 6 year wait to be able to beat them again but also of hearing from these moronic cowboy fans about what the cow chips did to us the last time out....I'm willing to forgo 1 colts win to shut these dudes up for any length of time.
