Default Re: More disrespect from national media.

Do you really want the national media forming a narrative on our hometown team? Do you really think that narrative would be anything worth reading? Just because they do puff pieces on the Cowboys/Pats/Steelers/Tebow does not mean we would get the same treatment.

Let them get disrespect, let them fly under the radar. There are plenty of places where I can find actual analysis that is done by real people and not ESPN or NFLN.

I prefer NFLN to ESPN for no reason other than I can just leave it on that channel while I do other stuff and they'll eventually get around to talking about the Texans. I think most announcers are saying positive, but sometimes hesitantly so, good things about the Texans. If Schaub was still the QB, a lot of them would be more inclined to pump us up. They're still waiting on TJ to either screw up or keep showing he can do the job. I'm not sure I blame them for that.

Why do people get so worked up over this stuff? Who cares about some blow hards rankings? The only rankings I care about is the draft order. The closer the Texans are to #32 in that ranking the better. F everybody else.

Of course if you've just got to have it to make you feel better or whatever, check out Aikman's rankings. He's had the Texans #1 for at least a couple of weeks now.

Yeah, I don't get the constant pissing and moaning over this stuff either. WHo gives a damn about what some guy put out there as a ranking. Some fans get so worked up over this as if they are on the team and actually playing.

The only thing I care about is getting coverage on the main media networks to hear about my team. I hate that I never hear anything about the Texans at all. It's one thing when they sucked, but they've been one of the best stories in the league this year, and it sucks that they're not getting any National attention for it.

The joke is on them. Any reporter/journalist who fails to acknowledge the success of our team, only proves they don't know half as much about NFL football as they would like us to believe.

Default Re: More disrespect from national media.

I would enjoy having more disrespect than unearned respect. It has been a life long observation that most of the folks who discuss respect, are often not worthy of or able to provide respect themselves.

The symbiotic respect between the team and its fan base is more important than a Generalist in a studio, who is taking the cue from a producer watching trending information.

Respect what you're seeing on Sunday, this does not happen to often around here.

True Cowturd story.........I was listening to his show one day (summer 2010) and he was on one of his usual rants about how small-market teams are irrelevant and his comment was something like....."Seattle and San Francisco, you're not interesting, that's why we don't talk about you". Not 10 seconds later, he went to a station break with "Tomorrow in the Herd, 49ers coach Mike Singletary...."

Who cares?? Most of the media sucks anyway. Even if they give us props, there's usually a BUT in there somewhere.

I just hope our coaches post this crap for our boys to see.

To me, power rankings are just some guys idea of who is playing the best football at the time. I generally don't agree with any of them 100%. I do think we are slighted a bit when the 49ers, who have lost 2 of their last three make the list when we are on a 7 game win streak.

I feel slighted that both Atlanta & Cincy are on the list when we just beat them back-to-back.

I understand the apprehension about the QB issue & I understand if they believe there is no way we can sustain what we've done over the last 7 games..... it defies all logic.

So seeing that we are not in his top 10 just reaffirms, to me, that something special is going on in Houston.

I think that is what they've been saying.

If you think about it, San Diego & the Colts have probably had so much trouble in the post season because they've been padding their stats & drinking the kool-aide in weak divisions.
