Default Our "SuperBowl"???

Okay, who can tell me why I read every week how " this is their Superbowl"? Does this imply that the Texans will play "harder than necessary"? Or is it just a way to explain or excuse a possible LOSS by their team? Either way it sounds very weak, IMO.

The Saints are a great measuring stick for our team. Being 3-0 with quality wins goes a long way than 2-1 with wins over average teams and loss with a good team.

I was listening to Around the Horn yesterday, and they were saying "this is the biggest road game in the Texans history".

Give me a break. It's week three. I'll be happy if we go 2-2 over the next four games.

well it is an outlet to if they lose. An excuse if you will. Just like all the colts fans, after we beat them they were like well it was their superbowl good luck losing the next 15 and crap. It is a statment that shows us no respect meaning we have never won anything significant.

Exactly. The Titan fans will say the same thing, Jag fans too if they are awake, maybe Pittsburgh as well. Let them build in excuses, I don't care. I just hope they need one in the end.

Who said it? It is a common expression by commentators all around the league but I haven't heard it this year about the Texans.

I lurk on opposing boards when possible and two of the three forums to my experience has mentioned it being our Super Bowl (Colt/Saints). Not that it matters all that much, but that is where I saw it.

F em'. Until the Texans prove they are legit things like this are gonna continue to be said about them. I've grown numb to all the doubters, and haters.

With this teams history, you gotta have thick skin to be a fan.

So fans of opposing teams? Just seems like kind of lame smack talk.

This game reminds me of the colts week 1 last season. Everyone is treating it like a make or break game. The best part about it is the Steelers are up next. We have a few tries to prove we're legit.
