Click my twitter link...I posted the Bengals and the Texans as the top two seeds last night. retweet actually, but its posted for the world.

My response to your post is eh, what the hell is so "wrong"? So they got it wrong a couple of hours after gameday Sunday wound down, big friggin' deal. Being hypersensitive isn't a good personal habit and something you don't want in to see in your friends. Being hypersensitive in your fan base is kinda pathetic also.

Oh, another whining thread! Does this ever stop? I know I'm new here, but can we just stop worrying about what other people think about us?

Everyone wanting the national attention needs to think of next year. If and when we make/go to the playoffs, we will be getting more national attention than we can handle.

Winning the division means we visit the big boys aka top division winners on a regular basis next year. We will be on national TV a LOT.

National attention is a double edged sword as it can really expose your bad sides. Remember when we made the highlight reel for about 4 straight weeks last year? That wasn't fun.

I wish there was an archive of recordings for all of this. Not because I don't believe you, but just but for records' sake.

Houston is the most complete team. Get Andre back 100% and then unleash the Beast. You know he wants to be out on the field so bad right now.

Meh! Who cares?

Just win games and the naysayers will come out from the woodwork. That said, this team has a dubious history of losing games that they really need to win. Take for example this upcoming game against Tampa. The Texans have a history of blowing games like this that would be the difference between a nice 7-3 team v. a 6-4 team.

I guess it's something I don't have to deal with on a day-to-day basis, since I'm not in the US, and I don't pay a lot of attention to the chatter from the media during the week, but I don't care what someone else sees in my team. I do like what I see from them this year. Last year, we probably would have lost to the Jaguars and maybe to the Titans as well. This year, yes, those are the games we should win, and we are winning them. I'd like to see them win the games like they had against Oakland, but you can't have it all. The progression and lack of any one section of our team that makes me scared is what I want to see way more than a bandwagon-jumping media member talking about the Texans like they were Tim Tebow's "frozen-rope" passes to Eddie Royal.

We beat the Browns in the week when NE loses in last seconds to the Giants, Baltimore and Pitt go after each other, Green Bay wins a shoot out with the Chargers, Jets battle the Bills, and etc.

Our game just doesn't stack up with all of those.

Better this way, we've seen how things end up when we're the sexy pick.

I think the Texans will get national respect when they earn it.

While local fans can see the Texans as a great team that got screwed by weather, referees, and too hard schedules the past few years, less invested observers don't. They see a team that was mired in mediocrity or consistently underperformed. These are about the only two options, and neither generate respect.

If this team had started in LA and had the exact same history, I doubt football fans here in Houston would have considered them perennial contenders and worthy of such great respect. In fact, we'd probably have been laughing at them and their delusional fans, right?

What pisses me off the most is that for our highlights we get ONE shitty guy who talks through it, and for EVERY other game's highlights they actually get people who know football talking through it. It's just ridiculous. We can't be THAT hated by NFL Network, can we?

Worrying about media attention is like having HWSNBM as QB.

Worry about being vain or worry about being good.

Ill take wins over good things people say about us, if it pushes this team to new heights Im all for "no respect" or being "ignored".

not that I care what national media shows (hell usually local TV doesn't show anything either)

I am actually surprised that NFL Total Axxess didn't show any highlights (I did step out for a minute)unless I missed it..

Monday night didn't show anything either

of course I didn't see the Bengal-Titan highlights either on either show.

I thought maybe they would mention what Tate-Foster did and maybe showing Cushing getting headbutted

Not that it's important, but when I watch highlights I want to hear somebody who at least halfway knows what he is doing. Not some piece of shit who is learning on the job.
