    Did anyone catch this on sportscenter tonigth? It was great! Everyone spoke so highly of Mario Williams. Kubiak explained why they love him, Weaver explained how great he is, and MW spoke about how much he's already learning. They then did a fact or fiction:

    Kubiak is a more important addition to the Texans than Mario Williams: Consensus ? Fact (100%)

    Mario Williams will get more sacks than Reggie Bush will get TDs: Consensus? Fact (100%!) Both said MW shoul dget between 8 and 10 sacks, while Bush will get between 6-7 TDs

    Houston Texans will get a top 5 pick next season: Consensus? Split (50% Fact, 50% Fiction)

    Pretty good review from the ESPN anti-Texans!

    Did you notice that it was former linemen saying it? =) I just hope Mario can make the 3 people or so on ESPN who have taken our side look good.

    This is just my opinion and I hope I dont smash any toes. I hope it was a good show; I am on an ESPN boycott until they decide to stop trashing Texas teams. They constantly belittle our teams and they single handedly ran enough propaganda for Reggie Bush you would have thought he had a contract with the company. Hell how many years in a row are they going to rank Ohio State as the best team in the country for College football during the preseason, and how much Yankees-Redsox crap can a show vomit out every day. I can’t believe people pay for that crap. NFL Network, and Fox-Sports online is all I need to keep me updated.

    isn't reggie in thier fantasy football league commercials. yeah, it'd be beneficial to them to put reggie on a platinum pedestal.

    I don't blame you. I pretty much only watch it when I know the Texans will be shown or talked about, but then, that's about the only time I bother to watch TV at all.

    at the 24th minute of the broadcast, provided they broadcast it in the same order. i like how MW called him "a running back."

    I wouldn't diss on ESPN too much cause they're all bandwagon hoppers. When you're good, than they think you're the best NFL team ever. When you suck, you might as well be worth doggie-doo. We just need to win some games, and then they suddenly won't stop shutting up about how good we are. That's all there is to it.

    Maybe ESPN is being nice to cover their backsides.

    Bush has a bad game against the Cowboys, ESPN says opps, maybe Reggie isn't going to be the second coming. So lets go and have several people say Mario was a good pick. Now no matter what happens, ESPN will have several experts (I use that word loosely) that can say "I told you that "insert Players name here" should have been the 1st pick.

    I noticed that little comment also. Thought is was great on Mario's part.

    :fireball: "a running back"

    Yeah, no offense to us (the Texans and their fans), but why should we deserve any media coverage at all? Last year we went 2-14, and could have very easily gone 0-16. We were unbelievably bad last year. That doesn't build up good ratings or a fan base.

    Unless we prove ourselves, then they won't talk about us. I remember distincly hearing about the Texans prior to last season as an up and coming team. Too bad we blew our media momentum

    I think this is right on the money. If you noticed right after that they had a segment all of a sudden on why Reggie wont be the reason the Saints go to the playoffs.:spy:
