    The one time he gets attention is probably when his individual performance deserves it least (of the last three games at least). Anyway, this was a great team performance and Im glad our boys are getting some good attention from the media.

    "Here's guessing Jacksonville wished Houston would have taken Reggie Bush instead of Mario Williams. Williams had two tackles, a sack and recovered his first fumble."

    I like that part!

    I think we are seeing the enclination of Mario. It's quiet but everyone else is playing loud.

    Did anyone notice how they hardly could run his way?

    I like how we are moving up that power ranking chart and how we there are 10 teams worse than us.

    Think ESPN is just covering themselves so just in case they have to eat their words.

    ESPN has been saying good things about Carr since the season started, but they dont pass up the opportunity to bash our defense

    You guys realize that if you take away the second half of the Cowboys game (most of us recognize that was caused by 3 consecutive turnovers in our half, not the play of the D), we have given up 25 points the last three games? 15 to Miami, 3 in the first half to Dallas and 7 to Jacksonville. I really think that we have turned a corner defensivley since the Washington game and the 22 straight completions. Guys are tackling better, we are blitzing and hitting the other teams quarterback, and ultimately, we arnt giving up points. Keep getting some turnovers and we have a legitimate defense.

    Until our defense can consistently stop some people, we deserve to get bashed on it. We were 2-14 last year. We won't get any respect until we earn it... and we SHOULDN'T.

    Everyone should be talking crap about us and we should be coming out with a chip on our shoulder to shut them up.

    I like to think that the Texans played well against the Cowboys, but I can't get over that second half. Another way to look at it is that they've won 2 of their last three games. I'm not ready to sell their ranch based on their stock, but with a light second half of the season, they could end well going into next season. Now if they can just fix the offensive line...

    I can't get over the fact that it was still a 4 point game with something like 3 1/2 minutes left in the third... it was like an 18 1/2 minute ride to hell, and I was there surrounded by star spangled devils...

    Me, too. There were some other Texan fans in the seats behind me but they were incognito (as was my wife). I was pleasantly surprised by the number of Texans in the stadium.

    That performance (or lack thereof, as it were) is what prevents me from drinking any of this week's koolaide. It was the definition of pathetic.

    After losing to the Bears in Texan-esque fashion and losing to the previous worst team in the league...they deserve it.
