    Actually, I do believe it is a slap in the face.

    Wow.

    We're now THAT team.

    How did I ever fall for it? I mean, I'm that guy who sees an oasis in the desert and starts running for it with all my might...only to dive into the ground and start gulping the dry grains of sand.

    I've got those "Bad NFL Team Blues."

    I need a good Nicholas Cage movie to get me out of this funk. I'm thinking Captain Corelli's Mandolin or Kiss Of Death. Actually, Kiss Of Death would be better because it's a double dipper: Nick Cage AND David Caruso.

    Now all I need is one of those microwavable NightHawk salisbury steak dinners, and some heroin. And then it's back onto the road of recovery for this gentleman! (sounds of weeping)...

    I would actually take a slap in the face at this point.

    Instead of getting slapped in the groin every Sunday at 12:00 p.m. Central Time.

    Listened to Mike & Mike this morning....Chris Mortensen thinks its worry time for the Cardinals, Panthers, and Texans....his segment was brief, but he talked about the Texans problems they had all summer. Look for a change if it doesn't get better.

    So since Kubiak's been here......

    Not only have we been passed up by Sean Payton, Mike Smith and Tony Sparano....

    We've been passed up by Kevin Sumlin.

    I took it as a reference to the Coogs losing to Rice last season and how an elite college team wouldn't do that although an elite college team would lose to an NFL team. That's not a slap in the face to the Texans, but a shot at UH.

    I believe it was a shot at OSU for losing to UH

    I'm so confused. Who the hell is supposed to be the recipient of the supposed slap-in-the-face comments from that news story?

    So many theories.

    I NEED CLOSURE!!!

    It's a mighty shame that Mr. Banks can't spell sceptical.

    sceptical is a variant of skeptical. Both are correct.

    It's amazing how many skeptics have come out of the woodwork all of a sudden when they've had all offseason to say this.

    Isn't it more amazing how many fans have come out of the woodwork all of a sudden when they've had a long established repeating pattern since 2004 and another preseason to boot, to say this? :thinking:
