    Anyone watching the Gameday Highlights show? They literally show about 40 seconds of the game then talk about how far we can go in the playoffs. Of course Dukes and Waddle say "not past the first round", will lose to the Steelers.

    What else do we have to do!?

    WTF is wrong with ESPN, NFL today? The Falcons get the cover story? Why? We clinched our first ever playoff spot in a miracle game and we're a side story. F the national media.

    It was supposed to be "earn it, and you get it" Now we've earned it, and are still being looked over

    Waited through 20 minutes of highlights for them to get to our game and they showed 2 plays and one poll where they said we couldn't beat the steelers. Horse sh*t.

    It gets worse!

    Now they show a poll asking to name the best 10 win team in the AFC.

    Texans, Ravens, Steelers and Patriots. Dukes says anyone but the Texans....

    I'm worried about the Steelers. With the combination of the Texans' bad luck with injuries and the dirtiest player in the league (James Harrison) lining up on the other side, I shudder at the thought...

    Y'all might get flamed for this thread, but I totally get wait, waiting, waiting for them to get to Houston and they skip it or give 20 seconds. Very lame.

    Keep in mind that all the players feed off this disrespect. More disrespect = More domination. Keep it coming I don't mind

    Being from Toronto, we've always got this treatment with the Raptors franchise. The only time we changed things was when we actually got to the playoffs and beat the Knicks in the first round back in the Vince Carter days. We then had the most media attention out of any of the second round teams when we went against Iverson's Sixers.

    When teams dwindle down, you force them to pay attention to you, and that's what the Texans will do come February.

    The Steelers won't be playing Htown in the first round. The Steelers will end up with the fifth seed and will likely play Denver.

    I think these guys thrive on this stuff. Let the pundits and "journalists" keep underestimating and naysaying.

    Didn't we break James Harrisons orbital bone when we played them earlier this year?

    This is why I didn't cry when we won the game today.

    Like I said in the other thread: EFF THEM. Eff 'em all.

    I knew we wouldn't get the respect. Why? Because they have their story, and the story is that they didn't pick us to win this season and they have a vested interest in making sure that they shade their coverage and can't be called out on their turnaround now that we clinched.

    Jamie Dukes is the biggest POS on TV, period. He is like the store manager in the movie Elf. Prancing around acting like he's the **** of the walk, unaware of what's going on around him, and Buddy The Elf (The Texans) comes in and shows him up.

    Eff that guy. At least Adam Schein of FoxSports came back around and started acknowledging that he has faith in us and likes our chances. He dipped a bit this off-season, due to being disappointed in us the past few years, but he jumped back aboard the Texans Express before today happened.

    The others? Eff them. Sharpe on CBS likes us. He said Ravens and Texans best two AFC teams, and that Steelers and Pats are 3rd and 4th behind us.

    Jaime Dukes is a hater. He can go eat a bag of peckers.

    Unless the Steelers can pick up a game on the Ravens in the next three weeks.

    The Texans are almost certainly the #3 seed at minimum. If the Texans wind up as only the #3 seed, they get the lowest seed in the first round -- right now, that would be the Jets.

    Same pack of unaccountable reporters said Houston couldn't win with Yates. JUST BECAUSE THEY'RE ON TV, DOESN"T MAKE THEM SMART!

    Did anyone feel the need to hear Rex Ryan for about 20-30 mins about his great win over powerhouse KC today too?

    In Reliant. And let's see Sanchez play against our defense NOW.

    He would need a meteor to strike Reliant in order to get out of being on his ass all day long. Funny how things come around, isn't it? He and Rex dancing all around the field that day...only to come back here in a playoff game against the best defense (something Rex is known for) in the league.

    Reliant will be deafening for the Jets all day. It will be epic.

    But I'm holding out for a 1st round bye. Still got three weeks of games to get some rest AND home field in round 2. That's the goal.

    Maybe we can pay them back for 2009 and last year.

    I hate the Jets and hope they miss out. I hate that lucky bullshit team more than I hate the Patriots.

    Whatever. I don't care. Let's just keep winning.

    They'll have to talk about us after a Super Bowl win.
