    this includes the whole franchise in general, not just this year or the last couple of years. but if you get to trade teams and everything that comes with it, all the history and titles and everything, which teams would you say no to.

    here are mine.

    Bengals.
    Browns.
    Vikings.
    buccaneers
    cardinals
    seahawks

    borderline but no
    panthers
    chiefs


    i think its pretty good that i would rather have the texans over 8 other teams considering weve never accomplished anything

    Since the Texans have been roughly an 8-8 team over the past few years, I'll say roughly half of the teams in the NFL.

    That supposed to make us feel better? Yay! We're better than 8 (or 12, or even 16) teams!

    :rolleyes:

    Also, a few of the teams you have on that list have a pretty good stretch of time in their history. The Bengals of the '80s had a couple Super Bowl appearances, and lost to the 49ers, which lots of teams do. The Vikings went to 4 Super Bowls in the '70s. The Bucs have a Super Bowl win. Even the hapless Cardinals have a Super Bowl appearance, and a recent one, at that. Since you said all the history ....

    Bengals have build a nice defense, just traded Palmer for 2 high draft picks, have a stud rookie receiver, looks like a good QB. I don't know if Id rather be them or us.

    Some of us here are frustrated because we know the Texans are a decent head coach away from being a top team. Kubiak coaches like a goober.

    sure, you pick the worst teams in the league and say we are better than them. Aren't we supposed to be better than the worst teams in the league after ten years of building a franchise?

    maybe you guys are misunderstanding me. im not just talking about prospects of winning this year or how they look in the future. im talking about overall franchises. If i could trade places with any fan, the only ones i wouldnt trade with are the ones i posted. that being said, i would trade with the titans and the jags.

    Battle red Tarp day wouldn't go to good with the tailgating, beer and that color red make tempers flair after a few beers and mediocre football

    Liberty white Tarp day would be tough on the eyes on those bright sunny day

    Steel Blue Tarp day seems kinds of depressing
    :peek::kitten:


    I don't know many Texans that have bbq recipes for pressure cookers for carp,possum and racoon

    I wouldn't trade places with any team. If I wanted to root for another team, I'd root for another team.

    sad to say it, but i'd only go with the browns (assuming you only mean post-expansion browns), jags, and probably bengals if only because of their owner.

    think of it this way, if you asked these fanbases if they would change places with the texans, who wouldn't start laughing? shit man, half those teams have been to a super bowl in the last ten years!

    Doubt it. Besides (and yes, I know, different sports), the Marlins have won 2 World Series since the Braves last won one, but that doesnt mean they wouldn't switch with the Braves in an instant.

    I'm not comparing us to the Braves (as I'm sure the people here will try to twist) but the point is that just because a team finds random success doesn't mean they're a particularly well-run or stable organization NOW. Are the Texans? No. But the Texans have an INFINITELY brighter future than the Seahawks, Cardinals, Vikings, etc.

    ^^

    Some of you are crazy! A coach and some change away from being a very strong contender and you want to switch places with some teams who are on their way down? Crazy talk.

    Being a Texans fan does strange things to the psyche.
