    So you know how we always complain about the media bias against Houston (and towards their East Coast darlings, plus, in the case of the NFL, Peyton Manning's Colts)? Read this and watch your jaw drop.

    In case you missed it, he IS, in fact, suggesting that, because it could help Peyton Manning's return, we should reexamine our stance on PEDs.

    That doesn't bother me. We should reconsider our stance on PED's, and it has nothing to do with Peyton Manning. The reason we should re-examine them is because:

    1. They exist.
    2. They work.
    3. Every athlete, or aspiring athlete in the world has gigantic incentive to use them ($$$)
    4. Some drugs are not able to be tested for, and therefore makes their use rampant already.
    5. It would level the playing field.
    6. In reasonable dosages, used smartly, they are not dangerous.

    use it and enjoy the same thing Brian Cushing enjoyed period.

    it is funny there has not been one sighting of the Texans on BSPN. Last week they did a top ten big plays and of course there were no Texans Highlights but the big suprise was that a pass from Kerry Collins to Reggie Wayne did make it. it was a garbage time TD but is made a top ten catch for BSPN go figure.

    As annoying as it is, ESPN is a national media outlet that caters to the biggest markets in the land. Dallas gets love because of their nationa/international fan base. Yankees have this too.

    It sucks but its business.

    Would P.Manning use them if they would hasten his comeback?

    Just as readily as he hopped a plane to Europe to undergo stem cell treatments which are not yet legal in the United States, not just frowned upon by the sports establishment.




    (and, come to think of it, why hasn't anyone asked why Peyton's head is so big... I mean, it's at least as big as Barry Bonds'.... just sayin')

    Yeah I was pissed that Jacoby's punt return didn't make it on instead. What are ya gonna do.

    I think the only way the Texans start getting love from the media is to get several years of going into the playoffs / winning. Indy is a small media market, but they've been consistently good for several years now and that's why they get the love.
