    how the natl media doesn't give any credit or news to the texans beating down the titans to take over 1st in the division.

    i think its funny just bc, if the texans did lose this game, they'd be all over this game. yet we dont hear anything bc we won. we didn't even rank in peter kings top 15 teams.

    its also kinda funny because literally every espn analyst chose tenn. to win

    Who cares, really?

    We've been mentioned a lot in the past 3 years as a potential playoff contender. Only to piss it away by mid-season.

    As a Texans fan, if you're clammoring for "National attention" after the crap we've seen the past couple years then you're just being an attention whore

    No offense to the OP

    I've always thought that the media "bias" was really just because we Texans fans are touchy and over-sensitive.

    But a friend of mine who lives in LA has decided to root for the Texans this season. (He grew up in Houston but was never an Oiler fan. He moved away from Houston back in the mid-80's and when his sister moved to St. Louis, he became a bit of a Rams fan. But although he likes footbal, he's not hardcore about it.) And he's been going NUTS about how hard it is to see highlights and good press about the Texans.

    He's more pissed off about it than I am.

    He said he was watching the news last night and they showed highlights from some games and then they went to the scoreboard showing the "other" games... and they forgot to even include the Texans. They just mentioned the score in passing. 41-7. No highlights, no score.

    He was ticked off.

    Respect comes with true success. Like playoff appearances at the very least.

    The Texans haven't done jack squat in ten years.

    Until they start making real waves in the post season, I'm not going to fault anyone for overlooking them.

    im not clammoring for national attention, i jsut think its funny that the broncos dolphins game is the headliner for the week...i know tebow is starting but cmon, the two teams had 1 win combined.

    the texans titans game was a huge game for the AFC south, and it wasnt even talked about

    I forgot what show I was watching. One of the "analyst" said, "we'll talk Texans & Titans when we get back."

    The other "analyst" said, "Do we have to?"


    Nobody wants to talk about us, win or lose. Had we lost a third in a row, yeah they'd have talked about us, a little.

    Let's get to the AFC Championship game & make some noise, they'll talk about us then.

    We'll earn their respect. I'm happy, that's all that matters.

    **** them and **** the news.

    Who cares what talking heads on either coast think? Why is it so important to have their respect? I just care about the Texans winning games...

    I have been to tons of sports stores in LA to find Texans stuff and none of them have it.

    It is not like they only carry a few teams either, basically every other team.

    Anybody else tired of hearing about Tebow. I agree if the Texans continue to win we will get our time, but really does it matter?

    We can't even get highlights here in Austin. Thank goodness they are showing the games and have been pretty steadily the last few seasons.

    I was starved for any Texans related news for years, that's how I found this MB. They don't even show Texans Huddle here. When I go visit my mom I am in heaven with actual sports segments covering the Texans on the nightly news.

    It's a little better here now but not by much.

    Last I checked "leading your division" involved the word leading. Usually leading isn't defined by "nothing special."

    Like we care about the national media... If we can continue to win, that's all I care about because you're right... The crap over the last "several" years, no one should consider the Texans anything but what they've been.... Mediocre.

    Take care of business against JAX and Cleveland, go into Tampa and win that... The Texans will gain some national attention.

    I hope that's not too harsh, I may get negative repped again from Scooter. :hides:

    Well, people in LA are ****ing stupid, so that shouldn't be taken as a very accurate representation of things.
