    That's right, at 3:20pm CST the 24 hour rule is in effect.

    No more talking about the Bills game.

    Bills fans re-locate to the Tampa Bay message boards.

    Focus on this weekends matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    I think I'll talk about whatever I want to talk about (staying within the topic relevant to that board) for the duration of time I wish to talk about it.

    24 hour rule? I don't think so.

    Thats fine, and that's your opinion. But why bury yourself in the past if you can't talk about how to solve the problem in the future?

    Didn't you snag this 'rule' from the Jags board?

    Each game doesn't exist in a little 24 hour pocket. They're all part of the 2005 season and they effect each other as well. If the Texans beat the Bills you get a completely different team taking the field against the Steelers next week.

    I can't do the "Put the bad thoughts away" approach to being a fan. I take the entire season together (and often add in the end of last season or the beginning of next season as needed) in order to arrive at where I think the team is. Right now I've got exactly one "real" game to go on. You saw it so that should explain my opinion right now.

    also, if we stop whining about the Bills game now to talk about the Steelers, what will we be doing all next week when we're supposed to whine about the Steelers game ? :)

    You know it's going to be a dark week on the board when the mods are testy. ;) (j/k, man)

    I guess a completely lackluster performance out of the gate, along with the Steelers next week, will do that to anyone, 'eh? idonno:

    I tell you what.....we need a playmaker like the BK King. He doesn't have a great lower trunk and doesnt have much explosion but that dude just makes plays.

    I guess if he needed a helmet we could always use Peyton Manning's eh? We could put the Hamburglar in the backfield and line up Ronald McDonald in the slot.

    I'd have to disagree with you.

    The Diet Pepsi Machine wins in my book.

    Maybe the 24 hour rule has merit in a 'lovers quarrel' or something... once you put words out there ... they are OUT THERE... can't take things back .. sharp words hurt ... don't go away ... etc., etc., etc.

    BUT, as for the Texans ... we are the KIDS in this family argument. We can scream and yell, and jump up and down and try to get their attention, but it's their problem to fix ... and get the "kids" under control and back in line. They don't want to keep hearing ... I hate you, and keep getting kicked in the shins.
    They need to figure out a way to get the love back. :)

    I think this one merits a little more than a 24 hour rule. I was frustrated and angry during and after the game, and it seemed to 'peek' late Sunday night. I'll still stew about it for another day or so, and I imagine by Wednesday I'll start to get out of my funk. On most any other loss I'd agree with the 24 hr rule, but this one was more than just another loss. It looked too much like the rough games of our innaugural season, and I expect more than that from this team.
     
  17. OK I'll admit, that was pretty damn funny. I'm glad I can smile again.

    He can borrow Jack's little boy's Pop Warner Helmet.

    I bet Grimiss would make a good LT.

    I don't know wherethis fast food chain is from and I don't know how to put the picture..

    I am liking this guy.. he gets his hands up and maybe possibly he can knock some passes down or block a kick or two.. downside is the like the BK King he isn't strong in the trunk area
