    ESPN poll of who will win the 16 games on the Texans schedule. We're sitting at 9-7! We ran the table with the teams in the top half of the first round, including Philly (55%) and Cleveland (75%). We're just edging Dallas at the moment. Split with J-ville, each team taking the home game.

    This is stupid, they should have both teams' voting count toward the percentage. For example, our team voting has us beating Philly. 53 to 47. If you go to the Eagles, however, it has them winning 94% to 6%.

    That's a good point. I imagine that a majority of the votes are for the team that the person roots for. I should hope to see some optimistic voting.

    The Bills fans seem to think they are going 16-0. I knew the weather was cold up there, but it seems to have affected their thinking ability.

    lol :tv: they've done next to nothing in free agency and they think they can go from 5-11 to 16-0.

    Wow, a couple of the ones that say we are losing are close. Especially the Miami game, 50.2-49.8.

    Gaining respect back from the FANS. That is most important. The Fans are the 12th man in that stadium.

    Teams need that 12th man behind them always when Defense is on that field. If the opposing offense cannot hear, they have a great chance of messing up their routes, exchanges in handoffs, blocking schemes, or penalties.

    For this I think the Packers have the best 12th man fans in the NFL. I have gone to a handful of games up there and no matter the score, the fans are making noise when their defense is on the field. They never give up and always give it up. The NFL says the Seahawks have the 12th man... NOT EVEN CLOSE!!!

    Would the REAL fans please STAND UP!!! The season is too short only 8 regular season games you get to be in the building with professional athletes and be a part of the outcome of the game.

    I know when I go to the games, if I am talking normal when I get out of there, I did not give them my all. When I cannot speak for 3 days after the game, that is when I know I HAD A GREAT TIME AND GAVE EVERYTHING I HAD TO MY TEAMMATES!!!

    Everyone? :) Probably a bunch of Texans fans. But hell, we have reason to be optimistic at this point.

    Too bad wins and losses aren't determined by democratic vote.
