Star power sells too, and the Texans are essentially AJ and a bunch of bums when it comes to that at a national level. Arian Foster may be a second star, if he isn't a one-year-wonder.

yeah, but that comes more into play with the NBA though. They market their superstars like nobody's business. You would've thought that the city of Cleveland had risen to New York status by watching the NBA over the last few years b/c aside from the usuals, they were always on TV - & in prime time slots, when Lebron was there.

The Texans have little history and what history they have is that of being a joke. think about how many highlights you see with a Texan getting burned for a TD. When the Texans start winning they will become relevant.

The national media loves a good story. When Gary is fired and Wade becomes HC. Bums boy taking over a new Houston franchise will be a big national story. Bottom line is winning= national coverage.

So far the Texans have failed miserably at putting a winning product on the field.
Bolded part to the max! When you flip on NFL Live or anything like that when they are talking about some other team and showing their highlights, or even just some background highlights while they are talking of multiple teams just as space filler, you notice (or at least I do) that you almost ALWAYS see Texans getting burned on defense.

Kubes blows donkey juevos for a 5th year so let's keep him for a 6th....

Name of the team is not exactly sexy....it took a good while for "Texans" to roll off my tongue for a sports team like it wasn't some Player Custom made Madden team you create and save on your Xbox like the "Spiders" or something..... And I'm someone that will instantly latch onto Houston sports stuff....but "Texans" and the logo took a little while to grow on me.

Basically, right now, we are seriously a joke........hate to admit it....but it's true. Even if we do well to start some season....most people in the media know we will flame out so it's not even a story.

Anyone familiar with my posts knows I'm effing die hard about this team.....but even me, during week 8 or so and beyond, it's just another Sunday with an excuse to grill and get drunk when the Texans play as they have anually already effed themselves for the year by then. My firends know when it's bad when my yelling turns to laughing later in the year...... I mean, what other team could bring you plays like the "Rosencopter" and epic FAIL collapses almost every year.

Texans were ranked like the most exciting team in NFL yet we haven't done squat......it's cause all those epic collapses are entertaining and so is stuff like Rosencopter

Okay, well Matt Turk. You got me there. Touche!

You can say we sucked last season, but I didn't think we were boring at all. Too many games came down to the wire to call them boring.

People want to see winners, regardless of the size of the market that these teams come from. ESPN and NFLN are responding to what people want at the end of the day.
I dunno...the Cubs are perennial losers, but they get an awful lot of coverage. There really seems to be a bias in sports broadcasting and coverage. Especially with ESPiN.

Because the Cubs actually have history. The Texans have none.

That's true, but it seems like they get far more coverage than either their records or history warrants.

That is why I said "at a national level". With the exception of Mario, the rest are pretty much unknowns outside of Texas.
