Default Texans shown love on ESPN

For all the people who complain about not getting "recognition".

http://espn.go.com/blog/afcsouth/pos...-ravens-spread

This video starts of with with the typical ESPN line of “(the Houston Texans) managed to survive the first round game against Cincinnati.”

They start discussing the line of 7.5 and discussing whether it is too high, too low, or just right. First guy doesn’t even sound like he knows what he’s talking about. Second guy starts talking about Flacco. He does say “Texans defense hunts” and gives props to the linebackers.


Then, of all the people, Skip Bayless shows the Houston Texans some love:

“The Texans have won me over. Been a doubter all year long. Because that team continues to display through lots of big injures: Mario, obviously Schaub, for a long time Andre Johnson gone. They showed a backbone and a character and guts that the other team in Texas never displayed all year. This team could of quit and never quit. And it got a little better and a little better and that defense isn’t the Ravens defense, but I got to tell you, it’s on the next level, just one level down, just one notch. It’s really good. And Wade Phillips has done a really good job with it. And listen, Arian Foster…he can carry that mantle too. And I think he is going to carry it a lot against that defense. And the Texans offensive line, I’m not sure it isn’t the best in football. Seriously, they don’t get a lot of accolades…I know New Orleans is really good. But as a unit, the way they road-grade people, they are really good. And the Ravens are going to have a hard time with this. I see a low-scoring game.”

You know at this point I just might be. I wish our players and our owner could just get outlandish and say "**** you!!!" ESPN. And I mean literally.

I'd love for Bob and our players to ignore any ESPN anchor and send a public message to ESPN saying that they don't want to be on their dog and pony show network and stick it where the sun don't shine. Literally shut ESPN out of anything that has to do with them.


Now I know that is a pipe dream and very unrealistic, but man **** those guys at ESPN. If the Texans were to win a SB, Id' want to see the coverage on them, but then again after being snubbed so badly by ESPN all season long after such a cool season we've had, it would be nice to see a team franchise embarrass and trash ESPN publicly and snub them back.

Been saying it for a while, the whole "no respect for the Texans by the media" has been overblown. All the major sports stations has been giving us respect due to our resilency. The fact is, when your an underachieving franchise for years and then you start winning, its going to take a while for the media to hop on aboard. And last of all, who cares about the attention, it about winning football games.

I was fine with that for years and carried that same sentiment. However this was a miraculous season for us and we carried the #1 seed or was tied for it for a while this season even after all of the injuries and with Yates at QB. THAT WAS A GREAT STORY. It was a much better story than the Tebow crap which was a good story, but not on the level of what the Texans did this season especially with it being their first playoff birth in their history as a franchise.

It didn't happen just to us though. The 49ers got completely snubbed as well.

If TebowMania wasn't sweeping the media, I'd say you knew what you were talking about. As it stands.... nope.

Thumbs up Re: Texans shown love on ESPN

I have complained about BSPN in the past. It is what it is.
I do think the line of 7 plus is too high myself and agree with Bayless.
I was surprised they had JJWatt on NFL32 yesterday and Andre Ware talking about the Texans on Mike and Mike this morning....so we are getting more talk....I cant believe it.....
Imagine next week if we win....lol

Getting caught up in media is what people who have inferiority complexes do. I would hate for our team to give even the slightest of acknowledgment to "no media coverage". Loser's mentality.

I know you're not going to like me for this, but I have to point something out to you.

The link you supplied, it's to the AFC South blog. Kuharsky writes on the Texans nearly every day, all week long, all year long. If this was your way of showing how ESPN is exhibiting "love" then you picked a poor example, seeing as how Kuharsky writes about the Texans every day.

I think the things people want to see from the media is all the "cover story" type articles and TV pieces like they do on the Jets or on Tebow, etc.

Even Kuharsky, who is a bit of a Titans homer since he wrote for a Nashville paper before becoming the ESPN AFC South blogger, is saying that the 2011 Texans and all they've been through is not being celebrated by the media as much as it should be.

Your title is fine. Your link and the quoted material is great. But to start off the thread by telling people "For all the people who complain about not getting 'recognition'..." is snarky and, once again, lecturing people who have been around for 10 years and don't need a finger wagged at them over something like this.
