They must've gotten this off the wire. I'm not sure anyone in Dallas even knows we have an NFL team. Nice stuff, but fluff. Bring on the Jets.
Praise from a Dallas paper, is that a 1st?
Anyway, I don't really mind it, but I would still rather "fly under the radar." All this good news is making me nervous until I see it on the field and in the record.
On a side note, the writer left Ryans out as a Pro-Bowler.
Oh well, what did we expect from the "outside press."
Our status still remains unkown, but the potential turn around is gaining recognition........even in a far away land. Our successful first rounders presently starters are noted.
'Overnight' fix: Houston Texans turning lemons into lemonade
This needs to be merged with Barrett's thread "Overnight Success". He got you by a few hours cloak
Honestly, that is because people in Dallas aren't obssessed with hating Houston sports. True. Plus the DMN has some great writers and they are objective on the local team and others out there.
There is no lemonade in football. It is time to turn goat piss into gasoline.
The DMN is easily the best paper in the state, but that may be faint praise ?
On the other hand, nationally it's certainly not even in the conversation with the likes of the NY Times, Wasington Post, and LA Times.
But we are fortunate to still have newspapers in our major cities in Texas because they're dropping like flies elsewhere.
BTW, I dunno much about the Austin paper, rarely read it ? So maybe I should qualify my own opinion on the states best newspaper ?
No, you are right. The Austin American Statesman is barely a paper. The Sports page is maybe 4 pages long and it is box scores with some outsourced articles and Longhorn news. The DMN is definitely the best in the state and those guys are harder on their own teams than anyone. I just like many of the writers and they seem to cover a large amount of stories.
