    The owners wife passed away. Two weeks in a row we have to play a team with emotions from the day or days before. She passed away wednesday.

    She was a big actress in Soap Operas. The Ratbirds will be wearing a patch on their helmets Sunday.

    All right, the Texans need to nip this crap in the bud and just start a ritual sacrifice of a member of their own front office each Friday or Saturday.

    Then they can be the team winning one for the Gipper each Sunday.

    Has a Texans opponent ever lost their "emotional boost" game against us?

    I guess the only way to counter these emotional games is with killing off ol' bob this week and then moving on down the family every week.:kitten:

    Too bad for his wife, but Art Model is a POS. Every bit as horrible towards Cleveland as Bud Adams was to Houston.

    The Titains are on bye week this week so next week the Texans will play them at the Heimerdinger's memorial game. Its a strange time for the Texans 2 back to back teams coming off bye weeks and 3 teams in a roll lossing someone close to thier organization.

    Yeah, it's also irritating that we have to play 2 teams in a row coming off byes, and both games are away.

    I had at least this game as a loss this week and I would not be surprised if there was a loss next week too.

    Heimerdinger has been dead for awhile, and Modell's wife probably doesn't hold the emotional father figure in some of these players lives like Al Davis probably did.

    Texans offense needs to come out and not play like crap for multiple quarters and we'll be in business.
