    First off, I want to say that the Texans fans I have encountered have been an excellent bunch.

    I attended a game in Houston vs Colts a few years back and I my family thought everyone was classy.

    I have attended Colts games in almost half of the NFL stadiums, and I believe that Reliant is my favorite.


    Tough game on Sunday. I expected the Colts to play better........ They slid out with a narrow win.

    I do think that you have found your QB of the future. After seeing Shaub play this year, who would have thought that an undrafted rookie would be making such an impact?

    Either way, you guys have lost some very close games and could easily be 5-3.

    I look forward to the renewed rivalry.

    Take care.......

    Go Colts

    These stealth brag topics are the worst.
    "Your team is good" ... "I like your fans" ...
    We don't need your pity. No team I despise more than the Colts.
    You seem like a nice person, so I'll just let you know that coming around with this after a ridiculous loss that basically has ended our season is not something you're going to make a lot of friends with.

    If we had a FG kicker in the least we would not be seeing this thread because the Colts would have lost.

    Someone move this to the trash talk bin. I'm feeling like eating a horse steak.

    Look, you seem ok, but these kinds of threads are a little tacky in their own passive aggressive way.

    I'm sure if you had given it some thought you might have seen the reaction coming.

    In some circles we were seen as SB contenders. Here we are at 2-6 after a 2-0 start and we just lost a game we really should have won against a hated divisional foe.

    After starting this thread you certainly you didn't think we were going to let you come in here, drink our beer and eat all of our stuff, did you?

    Actually on my trip I did have some beers and chow with some Texan fans :)

    I always tailgate and end up sharing beer and food with home town fans even though they wear the "other guys" Jersey. I always am respectful, and have had some excellent tailgates.

    A good rivalry is good for everyone.

    No slams, no in your face stuff, no put downs from me.......

    A close game is always more fun....... And a true rivalry is the best

    Per NFL rules, the Texans aren't allowed to win in Indianapolis. It's been quite clear by the officiating the last two years.

    I believe that was the manning rule. Since he is no longer there I don't think it still applies. :hmmm:

    Think "The crazy b!tch finally left." (Oilers). Think "I found a really good chick, and this time it's going to work!" (Texans founded). Think "Crap, I married this?!" (GM Casserly years). Think "The ex wife is now bringing our son (Vince Young) to town every year to kick the new wife's ass, and some of my own kin is cheering him on." Think "Thank God for therapy, she's better now and maybe we really can be happy!" (2010-2012 seasons). Think "Mother of God! She's off her meds and having a major meltdown! Why can't I just be happy?!" (This season).

    Welcome to our happy home. Glad you like the tea.

    One thing I will point out. I was amazed how well your tackle handled Mathis.

    Who in the heck is that guy?


    I will also say that I wanted Indy to take the WR from Clemson. He was a beast in College. He will be a star IMHO.


    I think a trip to kicker mart, may be the biggest thing you guys need.

    (And maybe a DB or two)

    How does it feel to be so lucky to accidentally have your two most terrible seasons in like 20 years at exactly the same time Manning and Luck came out?? Talk about a very very fortunate fanbase. Though Luck is no Manning, and has a lot to prove... Still, must be nice.

    I feel very fortunate.

    Of course, as a long time fan we did put up with stellar QB names like Gary Hogaboom. We traded our future to draft Jeff George. We gave up a ransom for Eric Dickerson. We gave up 2 first round picks for Fredd Young. (Ever heard of that guy?) We drafted so many very 1st round busts, we were the laughing stock of the NFL

    We had so many years of C.O.L.T.S. (Count on losing this Sunday)

    After STUPID front office moves...... We finally started turning it around..... And yes....... Luck did play a part.

    Its almost like we were so bad, for so long, that we "deserve" the luck we are getting today.

    Now, to Andrew Luck. He has some room to improve. For whatever reason, the guy just plays better in th 4th quarter. Its almost like he needs more time to warm up.

    He isnt a manning, but as he develops more consistency, he can be a great one. His edge over Peyton is on 3rd down. If Peyton didnt find an open guy, we would punt. Luck runs for it and usually makes it.

    AND.......If we dont get some real blockers....Luck will be injured soon


    I moved to Dallas (hate the cowboys) and do keep an eye on the Texans, when my Colts arent playing.

    Good Luck with the rest of the year....... (Just not the Colts game :) )
