    Everybody knows the real Browns are in Baltimore. That team wearing the Browns uniforms are pretenders. :)

    So, claiming that their misery is somehow superior to ours was a swing and a miss. Other than that, pretty funny.

    Their fans misery hasn't changed any. I'm sure most fans of the old Browns teams didn't just start rooting for the Ravens, just like most Oilers fans didn't start cheering for the Titans.

    That's the whole point. The guy is claiming we can't be diehards because we didn't grow up with the team. And then throwing the Browns out as an example of fans who've been miserable with their team forever. None of the current Browns fans grew up with Browns v2.0

    Loved this one:

    Obviously they posted on the old board and argued with Hulk75.

    Tell me you haven't had that train of thought go through your head as a Texans fan.

    Still do. But I will continue to watch to see if I am wrong.

    Too much kool aid and I am afraid I will become like the delusional cowgirl fans.

    I thought about it. But we put a whup'n on Denver & Baltimore & pretty much ended Chicago's play off hopes. Can't win them all. Nobody else does.

    Well sure. But only the most delusional thought the Texans were going to beat the Pats in the playoffs.

    The thought would have seemed a lot less delusional, had the Texans been going into the playoffs playing the way they were earlier in the season. I was hoping for the best, but didn't really expect it to happen, largely based on their poor performance in the last 4 games of the regular season.

    Over here.
    At this point, we have had a period in time where we were the best team in the NFL (when, yes, everyone was really trying); but, it just wasn't at the end of the year or in the playoffs. Maybe we will do it again in the playoffs some time in the future. Maybe not, but it was pretty much inevitable that it would happen at a less important time first.

    Some teams also go through being one of the best at the end of a season, but they sucked so bad early that they don't even make the playoffs. This can even happen to a team that then comes out and sucks again the next year. One difference is that they are not usually THE BEST.

    We were THE BEST in the NFL for a while. Now we just need to sustain it when it really matters most.

    All you can do is keep trying.

    I had the Patriots handily beating the Ravens in the AFC Championship game. & I knew San Francisco was going to win the Super Bowl.

    Both teams were playing much better than the Ravens the previous week. The Bradies whupped us & Kaepernick was a one man highlight reel. & that defense...

    The Ravens got really, really, really lucky two weeks in a row going into New England & they got really lucky to beat San Francisco.

    Nothing wrong with being lucky, I'm just saying the Ravens weren't playing any better than we were going into the play offs. Ray Rice, their best player pretty much disappeared & Flacco stepped up (becoming their best player).

    I was hoping we'd get some of that luck that won the Detroit game for us.

    It seems our luck ran down the side of Matt Slauson's leg in week 5 last year.

    Or it ran down the inside of Matt Schaub's leg the last 6 games of the season.
