    I know we have all complained about the lack of respect ESPN shows the Texans. And I agree with what certain people have said that you must "EARN RESPECT" as a team. And we obviously haven't done this since 2002.

    HOWEVER, it is inexcusable for them to ignore individual excellence on our team. VY is awarded OROY....AND it's the #2 story on their page. That's fine. He did a great job (imo). But RYANS is awarded DROY and it's no where to be seen!!! (at post-time, which is 11:40 CST).

    UNBELIEVEABLE.

    At least NFL.com has it listed.

    Geeez.

    I suppose I should have been more specific.

    Not the football section.



    (taken from the FRONT page...and it has since been moved to the #1 story. Hahha) Just another classic example of ESPN thumbing their nose at us.

    Under More Headlines on the main page (link) and also listed on the main NFL section.

    Defense is all guts and no glory.

    It's not a DEFENSE vs. OFFENSE thing.

    DROY is on the front of NFL.COM....just not ESPN

    I was thinking ... if we would have drafted VY ... would he have given us the OROY and the DROY ?

    Not sound like a donkey here; so? He got the award, there are plenty of articles on it, it's front page in some places. You think they actually sit around and say amoungst themselves "Hey screw the Texans, we're not reporting anything on them."? Chill out.

    NFL.com = All about NFL.

    ESPN.com = All Sports.

    Don't worry about it too much. It's ESPN after all. On NFL.com Ryans is listed first and you kind of have to infer as to what the link for VY is about.

    Heh...like I mentioned in the OROY in the NFL Discussion Forum...VY has played well this year, but he wouldn't have won it with us. We would have sat him the entire year. And yes, that includes with Carr playing so poorly.

    Funny how Vince "runs away" with the award while Ryans is merely "named" DROY. Like Vince was the one that won with 36 of 50 votes...

    Why do we still care what ESPN thinks of our team?

    Just curious but wasn't DROY announced yesterday? I seem to remember seeing it here on the board yesterday, late in the afternoon. I didn't see anything about Vince Young being OROY until today. Actually it was this morning to be precise.

    Isn't it just possible that nobody was plotting to disrespect the Texans and that they were just announced a day apart. that would account for the story on Ryans being further down the page than the story on Young wouldn't it?

    Well I resent the fact for the last 100 years or so, UT and the aggs have pretty much sucked up all the royality monies. Ags have had their hands in the till with the flag ship just as long. All the other public universities got the crumbs. Be careful there kettle.
