    Watched Mike & Mike in the Morning to hear commentary about our game...

    Cris Carter, Mike Ditka, M&M only focused on the Colts without Peyton, "Colts better do this...", "Colts need a checkup from the neck up...", Colts, Colts, Colts.

    No kudos to Texans D play, no recognition of our offensive steamrolling, mopping the floor with our division nemesis. I don't think I heard Mario or Tate's names once. No respect. Yet. :aggressive:

    We're 1-0 and so are some bad teams. We have to earn it, especially after going 2-8 in our last 10 games...

    What the talking heads have to say about the Texans follows two laws. (1) If we like what we hear, it's on the level. (2) If we don't like what we hear, the source is prejuduced against us.

    I detest that show, rarely watch it! Those two guys are so busy trying to out talk each other they lose sight of desent commentary!

    I got this quote from a "friend" the other day. " I'm a Cowboy fan, BUT, I like the Texans too! When you guys win a SB I will be right there with you!" I can't put my reply on this MB, it would not be suitable! I doubt I will hear from this "friend" again! BUT, this is the attitude out there in general. Until we PROVE ourselves by WINNING a SB, we will not get the respect we all want as fans. Look at the Cardinals. They went to the SB but bombed out. Fans don't respect them anymore now than they did before that fluke of a year. We gotta take it ALL my TT friends, or this time next year we will still be bitchin about not being respected! JMO!!

    Honestly, it seems like every year the national media actually picks us to actually DO something with our season (see Tom Jackson picking us to go to the Super Bowl last year) and the Texans as of yet, have ALWAYS thrown egg on their face.

    So, if I was one of the talking heads, I wouldn't believe it until I see it from the Texans. The Texans need to go 3-1 to start to get any kind of "respect" which means beating MIA, and either NO or PITT.

    I prefer to the team under the radar anyway most of the time.

    One last thought, I think Peyton being out is thr bigger story for now, he's been basically the face of the NFL for years and clearly IS the Colts who may not make the playoffs for the 1st time in like 10 years, so, yeah that kind of is the bigger story right now.

    (I agree though that I get tired of all the overlooking of the Texans too sometimes so I see where you are coming from)

    this is a good thing lets just fly under the radar and sneak up or anyone. we had a stack of talk last year and look where that got us.

    the national media not talking about us is a good thing.

    You shouldn't overreact after losing a week 1 game, and it works vise versa.

    Anyone who's expecting praise or respect after a win over the Colts should be fully open to receiving chants of "fraud" if we lose next week against the Miami.

    Good. I don't want their respect. All I know is we got a game against Miami this week, everything else is inconsequential. The talking heads get paid to talk, let 'em.

    No respect yet...no care yet. We haven't done anything to earn it.
    Skins, Raiders, Jax are 1-0, does that mean they're any good?

    What is the record in the month of November under Kubiak?

    I'll start really believing when December rolls around and the record is 8-4 or similar.

    Ugh. Not another "we don't get any respect" thread. Please, make it stop.

    Every national writer in the country loves us and has us going to the playoffs, yet we're whining about "no respect"?

    I somewhat agree here. However, we are 1-0 in our division, and that's better than both the Colts and the Titans.

    If we can go 3-1, we really need to lose to the Saints, that way we're in better position with our AFC record moving forward.

    Well what have they done to earn it?

    The media has actually given the Texans quite a bit of respect the past few years, outside maybe Lombardi and a few others...

    But it is funny how people are diagnosing the Colts as if they're geniuses... It's real simple...

    Win in Miami, win on the road against Saints, beat Steelers at home.

    I couldn't give a crap what Mike and Mike in the Morning think. I just want Ws.

    I am sick of fudgy foo foo football talk.

    Let's talk more X and O talk on the forum, and less making issues out of things that aren't issues. That ends up happening when there's nothing going on and we can't wait for the next game.
