Discussion in 'Texans Talk' started by Kaiser Toro, Oct 23, 2007.
Are you scared to watch again? I ain't.
I've already watched it again...and it was probably as bad or worse on TV than it was live...but I'm catching NFLreplay...it's a great concept.
I don't need to watch that again. I lived it first hand.
i'm too skeeerd
I watched the short cut edition of the game and it is bad in ADD vision as well. Maybe this rendition of the game will shed some light on our woes.
I agree it is a cool concept.
The more I think about last Sunday, while contributing to our redundant threads going on about redundant problems, the more I want to rub Flanagan's belly and wish for a Center in next year's draft.
That's right I said it. The belly.
I like how they stop and put excerpts from the participants explaining what they were doing or thinking at the time.
It may be hard to watch this without throwing up.
Yeah, I might go ahead and purge before hand just so I can watch it with some objectivity... on the other hand, I may not... I don't want to feel guilty the next time I wear my "I beat Anorexia" t-shirt...
They should edit the ending, and make it look like we won.
I would watch it then.
You're a sicko if you WANT to watch us get beat like that again.
You're the type of person who tried to recruit me to watch "Faces of Death" back in the 90s. You're the person who challenges us to pee on a hot-wire fence.
Anyone who watches this, after seeing it the first time, is a sicko.
End of discussion.
I may watch the fourth quarter. I was busy selling a 42 inch panasonic plasma (two, actually) when Sage decided to go wild.
I've already been told by a coworker that I disapointed her because I was not gung ho enough about the rest of the Texans season so I don't want to watch it again and REALLY put myself in a bad mood.
It just came on, I turned it off. Though I bet I'll rewatch the original HD (or upsclaed) broadcast on my DVR before I delete it.
I already re-watched it from the DVR. I finished up last night about the time it aired on NFL Network. I do really enjoy the format of NFL Replay.....it's great.
Things I noticed on the second viewing that I couldn't see at the stadium or needed the benefit of replay.
1. The Jacoby fumble was a very close, (it look like the ball started coming out before he was down) definitely couldn't be overturned, not enough visual evidence....of course I was very mad during the game and thought he was down.
2. The first interception by the titan's db (can't remeber the name) he definitely cut off Walter's route and there was illegal contact before the ball got there. It was a bad no-call. (just as I thought live)
3. The flag against Faggins for pass interference in the endzone that led to the first tack touchdown was a bad call. They were barely hand fighting at all.....if the refs are not going to call that Walter was illegally contacted (as mentioned above) how can they call this? BE CONSISTENT REFS! (just as I thought live)
4. Our offense did nothing to help our D. The D was constantly having to defend a short field, and all though they gave up a lot of field goals, what else could they do on so many short fields and never getting a breather. I guess it all goes back to our lack of running game or inability to hold on to the ball and give the D some rest. We lost the field position battle big time.
I really dig NFLReplay. It's cool to have a chance to watch all the other great games in a really compact formula. Then with the addition of interviews of the players/coaches about specific plays, you get into their heads and discover the method (or lack of) behind the madness.
I've seen last Sunday's game four times now (including attending). It's such a weird game, to be honest. Three quarters of being completely dominated capped by one quarter of a crazy comeback. If only we had the break for the last 57 seconds, this one would have gone down as a legendary one.
Kaiser I watched it again the day of the game. Hard thing to do, but I watched it again on NFL tickets shortcuts..only lasted 25 minutes, which wasn't as hard. Seeing Roydell Williams catch that ball right in front of us in person was really hard.
I Don't think I can watch the drama again.
I will watch though when we supposedly put White in at C(was it during the comeback?) and see how much things have changed.
I see the general feeling is that he should get his shot soon. I haven't seen him take too many snaps. I wasn't paying attention at the time too caught up in the moment that we were going to make some great comeback that would be showcased during the week and all year. I did see Green finally picking up yards...but the Jags probably played off in zones at the time and were caught by the run.
I watched the Rockets game last night, but I kept peeking over to see the Texans.. I waited until the fourth quarter to actually watch it... Well, right up until that final TD, extra point and kick-off, at which point I switched back to the Rockets game - only to watch them lose in double OT (thank God its only pre-season)...
Doesn't it really suck sometimes being a fan of Houston sports teams? Sometimes I just want to quit being a fan of the Stros, Rockets and Texans, but damnit I can't and it pisses me off. I freaking love sports. Living in Houston for my entire (soon to be)37 years the local teams have been engraved in my heart. Even though they've ripped my heart from my chest many times, they always find a way to repair it and place it back where it belongs.
Long live Houston sports organizations!!
I watched the second Rockets Championship in a house near the old Richmond strip. One of the best moments ever for me was walking down Richmond avenue carrying a broom celebrating the Houston sweep. And everybody was on the street--young, old, every social and ethnic background, and everyone was high fiving each other and loving life.
No rioting in Houston because of HPD, but it was hot and it was June so there were a few nekkid people. I was not one of them.
It was hard to go to work the next tday.
Professional sports, unlike other sports really have the opportunity to bring a city together like nothing else. You don't need to be an alum.
You should watch it when you get a chance...they often break down plays and get coaches POV's about what went on and they splice in interviews from the presser in between the plays they may be talking about and so on like DB states.
It was easier to watch than the actual game...they cut out most of our no gain plays and the mind-numbingly bad offensive footage other than the turnovers (there were a lot so I guess it's all they could fit in).
My wife and I were in Cozumel during that Championship series. I was amazed how many people showed up at a local hole in the wall sports bar. It was a great time and met some cool people while watching the final game.
It was a time I'll never forget that's for sure. Although later that night I found out I was allergic to lobster/crab.
