    With the draft over and training camp still 3 months away, I thought it would be fun to go back and relive some of the greatest moments in Texans history. So, I dusted off some of my videos and pulled some of those moments out and will post them here.

    Great Moment #1: Might as well start at the beginning. October 5, 1999...the night before the NFL granted Bob McNair the 32nd franchise. This is Channel 2 News coverage of the NFL owners meetings in Atlanta.

    I'll try to add more as I have the time. I have every game, including preseason on tape, so if you have a request just let me know. But I'm going in chronological order, so if you ask for something in 2004 it may take awhile to get to it.

    No problem! I've had these videos forever, I'm just glad I can share them with others.

    Look for more tomorrow!

    Great Moment #4: Reaction across Houston from fans to former Oilers about the towns new NFL franchise. Look for cameos from Ken Lay and a glimpse of the orginal version of this very website! This is coverage from Channel 2 and Channel 13 on October 6, 1999 and then a week later at a downtown rally celebrating the new team.

    Great Moment #6: The only thing worse than the VY vs RB debate around here was the name debate. Months and months of nothing but name ideas. Well, in September 2000 Bob McNair put the debate to rest. This is coverage from Channel 2 from the unveiling of the name and logo, plus the CBS and FOX pregame shows the following Sunday morning.

    Great Moment #8: Ok, lets just call this one a moment. On February 18, 2002 the Texans held their Expansion Draft and selected Tony Boselli #1. It was a great moment at the time, and a big step forward for the new franchise. This is live coverage from the GRB on ESPN. Too bad things didn't work out as planned....and how ironic it is to listen to the announcers talk about how good our offensive line is going to be. *sigh*

    I have to believe today will also be a great moment in Texans history, the day we are rid of Casserly. This could be the catalyst of getting this franchise on the right track.

    I havent seen that clip in years, but I remember watching it on TV cheering Boseli on. The plan to build this team in the trenches was there from Day 1, we have just had some bad luck implimenting it.
