    And I quote "Hey, can you hear the swearing coming from the Lone Star State? That's the sound of the entire Texans fan base realizing that their team could have picked Bush, hired Payton as their new coach and dumped David Carr to sign Brees. Ouch."


    :shoot:

    DUDE...GET OVER IT!

    Other writers are saying we're a team poised for a 2nd half surge...and you're still dropping blurbs on our draft, coaching choice and Carr!?!? If we're looking at individual performance, not W-L records, which QB is doing better this year?

    Close your proverbial mouth Bill Simmons....you have stupid coming out of your face hole! :yikes:

    Right! It's on page 2 as well. Everything on page 2 is either moronic or comical. Now, let's get ready for some football!!:bananasplit:

    I understand....and agree. I guess it's just kinda like the "Uncle Rico"s of the world that keep talking about shoulda/coulda/woulda without even paying attention to REALITY.

    Makes you wanna :brickwall followed by :hunter:

    Just expressing my :twocents:

    Cheers,

    Why does everyone complain when something bad is said about the Texans, honestly. Don't take it to heart.

    These Page 2 guys, thats all they do is write things which are humourous. Bill Simmons is still one of my favourite sports writers, even if he does write stuff like that. Yeah, once I read it I did laugh, and moved on.

    That is the same thing I did.

    This guy has never written a serious article for ESPN. His job is to write stuff about sports that will make people laugh.

    Most people outside of Texas still laugh at the Texans so they are easy to write about.

    Threads about Bill Simmons on this board is like an annoying fly that keeps getting let back into the house. He's always going to say something *****ic because he thinks it's funny.

    I usually really like Simmons, but for whatever reason his idotic bashes of the Texans really piss me off. Like claiming Mario over Reggie was a worse choice then Cullpeper over Brees. Hmm..one has 2.5 sacks and leading an improving defense, the other is benched in favor of Joey Harrington. Also, attributing the entire Saints turnaround to Bush and Brees...the fact they got a Pro Bowl RB back, got to play at home, and were 8-8 the year before Katrina has nothing to do with it...

    For the most part I like his stuff and most of the time the only reason I hit the ESPN site. That being said, I hate him for all the bagging he does on Houston, never anything good to say. Texans, BS. When the Super Bowl was here, BS. All-Star Game, BS. Then again he bags on pretty much anywhere if it isn't Boston.

    He's entertaining, but we'll see what he says about this place when the Texans are a powerhouse.

    If a team wants to pick a back in the first round, why would they draft Reggie Bush when Laurence Maroney is still on the Board ?

    Not one of Bill's finest articles, but still pretty funny. Don't know what some of you all are getting so worked up about. He poked at the Texans....So what else is new??? It's entertainment. And it's also funny how other sport writers who are supposedly picking us to win is a better writer automatically, and those who pick us to loose or say bad things about us becomes a moron instantly. Chill out, it's their job to write articles and stuff that will cause reaction. Otherwise we wouldn't read it.:cool:

    I just saw this article...I will be sure to email him some virtual crow to eat when we beat the Tacks.

    His prediction:

    TITANS (-3) over Texans
    Too much Travis Henry.

    I am calling for a Texans victory this game. I see it as a close game but a definite Texan victory.

    I enjoy Bill Simmons. If you've read his stuff you know he doesn't like the city of Houston. I don't think he has much of a bias towards the Rockets or the Astros, but just the city overall. Doesn't bother me. I'm sure other sportswriters don't like cities such as Detroit or Philly, etc... He's a funny writer. Don't take his article too heart. He wrote something similar to this before the season started and someone started a thread about that as well. It's an uproar over nothing in my opinion.

    Simmons is a humor writer. It's all toungue in cheek stuff. I don't neccesarily think this one was funny, but some of you crack me up. Getting all worked up about what some writer on some website said. And that impacts you how? That impacts the Texans how? I only wish I had so few problems as you people apparently have. Grow up, get a life, and grow a pair. :twocents:

    does he seriously think the Texans would want Dallas' old offensive coordinator as our coach??

    Denver South, I can live with.

    Dallas South..... hell no.

    & I like Dallas.

    Haven't we had these same types of threads and posts over the same guy about different articles in the past? Some people think he's funny and some think he's an *****. I personally think he's a somewhat funny *****. Until this team does something, like start winning, they're going to get made fun of. Let's move on.
