    Gus Johnson and Steve Tasker ain't callin' ALL our games!!
    It's so refreshing to not have to hear one guy bust one in
    the booth all game long, and the other guy say "Gus" 200 times.

    Yes, my friends, the Texans have arrived.

    I wonder if Jim Nantz and Phil Simms will be calling the game Sunday? Baltimore vs Cinci is the only other CBS game that I can see them calling.

    I am just enjyoing all media attention we are getting lately.

    From here and on, the Texans will have respect nationwide for years to come.

    Go Texans!!!

    I'd actually take Gus Johnson and Steve Tasker over the other analyst.... They're my favortie crew (I really like the excitement Gus has for the game and Steve Tasker aint bad either)....but to each his own.

    Gus and Steve are way better than the D list announcers we've had the past few weeks

    I like Gus Johnson. His enthusiasm is great. He gets more excited about big plays than half the Texans fans I am watching the game with.

    I still don't know. They show signs like:

    Most 3 and outs in the league.
    Schaub leading in passing.
    AJ leading in receiving.
    Most importantly a winning record.

    I would say we have turned the corner from being a doormat to a team that any team in the league needs to take very, very seriously.

    Next step, turn the corner to a team that most teams in the league expect to lose to.

    Next step, a team folks are disappointed in for not making the play-offs.

    So many steps.

    Yep. The way I see it we haven't turned any corner yet, but we have at least started braking. Next we flip on the turn signal and start turning the steering wheel.

    We've turned the corner when we consistently beat the Colts or give them games to remember. JMHO. Until we beat the Colts, we're just another good team in the NFL. Just like in the old days with the Oilers. It was us and the Steelers.

    I've heard Gus and Steve long enough for them to grow on me, but they
    are CBS's bottom-barrel announce team. For the last couple weeks, we've
    gotten their middle-of-the-road group. Next week, it's Kevin Harlan and
    Solomon Wilcots.

    And you can only take 1 step at a time.

    Next step - beat the Colts in their building.

    I love Gus Johnson...the most exciting 4 yard runs in the game. His joy is great....especially when he does March Madness games

    I like him too. I think his emotional calls bring spirit to the game. I can do without the monotones like Buck and the dude who called the Pack/Vike game yesterday. Show me some enthusiasm, like you're actually watching the game rather than just calling it and I'll listen.

    I don't know. Its hard to say that Indy hadn't turned the corner, even though for years they couldn't beat the Pats.
