    "Talk all the trash you want, Texans fans

    Let me welcome the fine folks of Houston to this here blog. I strongly encourage you to talk a whole bunch of trash. I mean, golly, why shouldn't you go wild over a preseason win?

    Houston native Aaron Glenn claimed he didn't even know the Governor's Cup existed, but I'm pretty sure he was trying to hide his hurt feelings. DeSoto's Patrick Crayton claimed the Texans approached this like it was a playoff game, but he acknowledged that the Texans earned bragging rights.

    Crayton also pleaded with the commish to make Dallas-Houston an annual regular-season rivalry.

    "Mr. Goodell, please set that up," Crayton said.

    I'm about to leave the Reliant Stadium press box and must admit I fear for my safety. Rowdy Texans fans might be rioting in the parking lot."

    The Houston football fan base is big and dedicated to say the least. Despite never having a winning season the Texans manage to sell more season tickets than Dallas, or most of the other NFL franchises. Jerry Jones' worst nightmare is loss of the Houston market due to a suddenly successful franchise there.

    For something that didn't mean much they are sure crying a lot. They also act like we were the ones talking such big smack before the game after wins over the colts and broncos in preseason and talking about how they look superbowl ready.

    I don't think Kubiak and co approached this like some playoff game like they seem to insist. It was approached like most staffs do the third game of the preseason. The boys just got flat out played and outcoached. Admit it, it's preseason, and move on for both sides. Both teams have things they need to work on.

    I think our team is capable of raising the intensity a couple notches past what we saw Saturday...

    I can't help but point out the irony in the fact that Dallas was criticized by Denver last week for blitzing in a preseason game, and are now complaining about us preparing for and exploiting that blitzing.

    If Dallas wants to go balls to the wall in the preseason, they need to accept it when someone gameplans for it.

    And, FTR, the Steeler crowd at the game last night was just as, if not more, lively as we were Saturday night. That is common for passionate fans so far as I have seen and has nothing to do with why the Dallas media is upset, despite their desperate claims as such.

    You know, my wife is a Cowboys fan and has been a Cowboys fan since she was little. BUT, her second favorite team is the Texans. She goes with me to every game, wears her Texans gear, and knows all of the players and roots for all of them.

    Now, with that being said, I HATE Dallas boys/mavs/rangers fans to the fullest; BUT, there are some Cowboys fans that would love to see our team succeed.

    Or maybe I just found the best apple out of a bunch of bad ones.

    Wait, wait. They say the Texans treated it like a playoff game? I seem to remember the Cowgirls leaving their starters in longer than the Texans did. Hypocrites.

    I swear, all cowboy fans are alike. Before the game, the cowboy fans were talking all kinds smack, but after the game, "Oh it was just preseason, you act like you won the Super Bowl!". Now this is after they called it the "Test of who is the real team in Texas" before the game.

    cowboys took the game seriously, the Texans did as well. Texans came out on top and now dallasites have to try to minimize the win to make themselves feel good. Typcial.

    They actually posted mine.

    Man ,o, man for fans that say a preseason game doesn't count why the fuss. Is it because all week your coach had been saying that Dallas was playing this preseason as if it were the regular season? Or is it because all week Dallas fans were talking about this being an easy win and the Texans suck, only to have your crow served to you at 10:00 p.m. Houston time. Face it we know Dallas is a good team this year(not 5 rings good or 6 before you say it). I hope the whole NFL keeps you're idea of what our team is now. That will mean a couple of unexpected wins for us. Don't be surprised if you see us at 10-6 come Jan.

    my favorite one so far as I read down

    I am like most.. if you are going to talk smack before the game, fine, but don't crawdad your way out of it after the results...

    and about Aaron Glenn not knowing their was a governor's cup? I find that hard to believe.. that thing has been going on since the oiler -cowboy days (when the cup isn't "lost" somewhere) and Glenn knew about that when the days he played with the Texans

    *edit* and it wasn't as if Aaron didn't grow up in Texas and play ball in Texas
