    He points out the fact that every team has been on Sunday Night Football except Texans. Says Texans will appear next, and possibly on the Superbowl. Heard on the radio this evening. Loads pretty slow.

    According to Costas the Texans are the only current NFL team not to have appeared on Sunday Night Football but hinted that would change next year.

    It has seemed that NBC has made us 'prove that we are worthy to be on the network, which is fine by me because I like good old fashioned noon games better anyways.


    That being said, I can't stand Bob Costas. He is a pretentious, self-righteous windbag who thinks he knows more than everyone else. Every time I listen to his Sunday night halftime 'musings' I can't help but want to vomit from listening to his drivel. He reminds me of a more well spoken Tony Kornheiser, but definitely as clueless and every bit as vitriolic.

    I get why you'd think of him as pretentious.

    But vitriolic?

    Costas, by all accounts I've heard, is actually a very nice guy.

    He may come off as a know-it-all because he damned near does.

    He's always been one of my favorite broadcasters.

    For somebody in sports media, Costas is one of the few who's a really bright individual.

    He must have been referring to NBC's Sunday Night Football. We've been on Sunday Night when it was with ESPN.

    Don't like night games, Sunday, Monday or Thursday, and I don't like afternoon games on Sunday either. I would like all football games to start at noon Sunday. As to Bob Costas, can't stand him and I don't care what he thinks about the Texans, good or bad.

    Yeah, he meant on NBC but didn't specify it. We did Sunday night a few times before....remember getting dismantled at home by Seattle.....:wadepalm:......that was a Sunday night game if I remember right a few years ago.

    Texans have been on every time slot possible for an NFL game once before (minus any post season spots of course)

    FVCK Bob Costas! I lost all respect for that little punk muff-hugga when the Rockets won their first title and he spent the entire series acting as if they didn't belong in the same arena as the mighty Knicks. He was noticibly crest fallen when they lost and did NOTHING to hide it. That vuggin' elf can kiss my natral blagg-azz.

    That game was actually in Seattle. And yes, it was a Sunday nighter.
