    Not that I'm saying we're being ignored by the national media, but how can we totally (mostly) dismissed in all the analyses of who might be a contender... I'm happy and pissed at the same time. Love to be the unknown, but pissed that no one sees the quality of the Texans

    I like it better this way tbh. Let us fly under the radar.

    The people who matter in this league like the players and opposing coaches KNOW who the Texans are and they are noticed. Just because the media isn't glorifying the Texans doesn't mean we are flying under the radar of any team.

    I agree, to a point. But jeez, Pittsburgh wins a few games, and they're anointed the best in the AFC. We manhandled them and it seems to be lost in history

    When you have been perennial disappointments and losers for years, it's going to take a while for the national media to hop on the bandwagon. If they win next week At Tampa, which they should, the media will start to hop on the bandwagon.

    I understand that but blame the media. We don't hear what NFL organizations say for the most part but I bet you that they know what the team is doing. They are taking notice and I would stake my life on that.

    oh stop crying. We have been letting down the people who have gotten behind us for years. I've seen guys like Tom Jackson pick us to win the division last year and I could name lots of National talking head types that have gotten behind us in years past and have all looked like morons for doing as much. We will win more games and we will get to the playoffs this year and we will get the attention you guys think we "deserve" now although we haven't done crapola yet. Lets do something first, then whine if we must...but let's friggin' get to the playoffs before we cry that we aren't getting enough attention.

    Let's win a game or two with some meaning on them, then they can crown our a$$es.

    Manhandled Pittsburgh?

    How is beating a team 17-10 manhandling them?

    It was a very solid win but lets not fabricating here.

    Tom Jackson actually picked us to go to the Super Bowl last year. It's crazy when you think about it now, but Wade has helped this franchise so much it's unbelievable. My only fear is that someone may see the job he's done and give him another shot to be a head coach. I want him to be our Dick LeBeau and lead this defense for the next decade. The scary thing is we're only going to get better on that side of the ball once we're able to draft and bring in players to build depth. We won 3 games that we should have won so no one should be rolling out the red carpet in front of us, but we now have a home playoff game well within our sights. That's good enough for me. Take advantage of this hurting Tampa team and people will start to pay attention. In other news, my blood pressure has been going down since we haven't been taking games down to the wire. I don't think that's a coincidence.

    Wade Phillips ain't going no where. His Texas ties will keep him in Houston hopefully!

    I think I heard somewhere that Wade said himself that he is not interested in being a head coach again. I can believe it too. After what he endured in dallas, I wouldnt want to HC anywhere!

    Anyone who watched the game knew that that was a blowout win for the Texans. Two bs calls took two touchdowns away.

    Heck, TJ picked us to go to the Super Bowl last year.

    edit: Someone beat me to it.

    Cowher did say during half time yesterday that the Texans may be the most complete team in the NFL.

    This is true... but some things are just wrong.

    This morning I was listening to Mike & Mike. They said if the play-offs started today, The Bengals & the Ravens would have the top two seeds in the AFC.......

    They're in the same division, it's impossible.

    Yup. Last year Tom Jackson had the Packers and Texans in the Super Bowl. Also, that yahoo sports columnist Michael Silver or Jason Cole(can't remember who wrote it), wrote this long rant type column after last year's infamous Jacksonville game on the road about how the Texans "fool" him every year and called them the "biggest tease in the NFL."

    I say just wait until the playoffs. A win there will turn heads.
