That was pretty much my point. I don't see the Steelers ending up with the sixth seed, thus they won't be playing Houston in the first round.

True -- but we don't even know that Houston will even play in the first round. So it would still be possible for their first opponent to be Pittsburgh -- but only if they get a first round bye, not if they take the #3 seed.

Sweet Jesus, people.

1) A good friend of mine works for ESPN. She sent me a text telling me she have the Texans a shoutout during her closing shot on the Sports Reporters this morning.

2) She also wrote a great column about the Texans resiliency last week.

http://espn.go.com/espn/commentary/s...ve-team-season

3) Last month's ESPN The Magazine had a cover story on the Texans. They spent an entire day with the team, and profiled the Texans-Steelers game. They dedicated something like 30 or so pages to the Texans.


Just because the immediate media reaction isn't to stop all the presses and praise the Texans great win doesn't mean we're not liked or respected nationally. And, even if we aren't, so what?

This time it's not ESPN that's the guilty party. It's NFLN.

Edit: and if you know Jemele Hill, tell her she's got at least one fan in Houston.

Everyone here does realise that when we beat the undefeated Packers in the Superbowl, it'll be remembered just like the Pats-Giants Superbowl.

You know that one that the Patriots lost?

Whereas more recently the Saints and Packers have won superbowls, that year the Patriots lost one.

But who cares really, the Texans are great to watch at the moment and just like Green Bay last year, they will improve by default next season when all those stars are back in the lineup, not to mention the number of others who are on the field but really banged up.

Eh, whatever. Clinching the playoffs isn't a big deal among the AFC elite. I'm fine with this. If you really care about outside perception, think of it as it solidifies us in an 'expected outcome' kind of way.

This day is OURS and there's nothing anyone can say or do to take it away from us. Time to celebrate folks and don't get caught up on who's talking or not talking about us. This is about Houston.

The Texans don't need any respect from ESPN or NFL Network, as long as they get it from Houston - the city. No amount of national attention is going to compare with what we the fans are able to provide, in terms of respect, for this win.

Edit: I mean all Texans fans, those outside the city as well carrying that Texans banner.W e all deserve to relish in this victory and the AFC South Champions Houston Texans.

I will tell her that. She gets a lot of flack from the basement Jethro's who troll the ESPN comments. A lot of people don't think a woman can have opinions about sports, unfortunately.

I just sent her a text suggesting she write a column about Wade Phillips and how he should be considered for coach of the year, and not merely coordinator of the year. I doubt if she'll bite on that one, though.

Yep. I agree on this.

We were the 4th or 5th story on espn's website. "Texans Clinch Division." Had a clip of the highlights of the game. Then you have a chance to click on another link that opens another story, called "Rapid Reaction" that talks more about it.

The NFLN guys are trying to act like they drive or define the flow of NFL news now. They've actually surpassed ESPN in being consumed with their own bias or their own take on what is hip and what is not, etc. Dukes has become the worst at it, IMO.

na they would talk about who should of REALLY won it, even if we did win. And then Espn would decide to suddenly stop coming out with their special DVD on superbowl teams seasons. Then the commissioner would decide football is old news and the league would end, we would get stiffed one way our the other

All the national sports media are too busy masturbating to Tebow to give us any attention. Or sucking up to a team in a "major media market."

Ok, apparently there is a CLASSY group of NFLN guys and there is a SNOTTY group of NFLN guys who envy the CLASSY guys.

Because I just watched Eisen, Deion, and Mooch go ULTRA CLASSY for the Texans. Nothing but the highest praise for the Texans. At the end of the highlights, Mooch yells out "Way to go KUBES!"

Showed mama hugging daddy, and they ALL thought that was superb stuff right there. Every guy on that panel said "Congratulations to the Texans." They couldn't stop saying nice things about us.

Nice, nice, nice stuff from the main guys. They showed Yates in a press conference type interview (he's wearing his suit, tie, and Division Champs cap!), then they even had McNair wearing one and interviewed McNair who said, "I hear all this talk about other coaches being considered for COTY. What about Gary Kubiak? We've won our last three games with three different QBs, and no mention of Gary Kubiak for coach of the year???" WOW!

Dukes and his squad of haters are trying to be edgy, IMO. Trying to be smarter than the rest of the world on this deal. Just my 2 cents.
