    Today all over Sirius XM and ESPN 1st Take (which of course Skip B!tchless disagreed with).

    This scares me. As much as I want to drink the koolaid, I'm not even taking a sip!

    We were 2-0 last year and that was a disaster. Things have changed so much for the better, and, I do believe we are going to make it to the playoffs. Problem is, the road to the playoffs isn't yellow brick.

    Which brings me to this, the best part about all the coverage today is I heard a caller who used the phrase "Man Up Monday" after his team lost this weekend.

    I'm officially stealing it for use on Texans Talk! Who knows, maybe we could use it on the Saints board in a few days ;)

    "Man Up Monday"

    Love it Kimmy, that was totally me with my fantasy football team this week. When you talk a big game you often times have to man up on Monday morning. :specnatz:

    The 2-0 from last year was totally different from the 2-0 from this year. I didn't feel good about the the good start last year. The defense especially looked horrid after the Redskins game. We won but you had a feeling that the defense was going to struggle mightily the rest of the year. Justs feels different this year. When the defense takes the field, I look forward to a big play from the defense.

    I still have that ba feeling our defense will be horrid, but I think it's that beaten dog feeling I had last year from our D. If our D plays well on Sunday, we will win. I fell like Matt is going to have a big game(he is due).

    I listen to Sirius NFL daily. Most of their hosts do an absolutely great job of letting the fans have their say and then actually discussing it on the air. I've called in a few times to Moving the Chains and Late hits and it was great.
    The Moving the Chains guys actually met up with regular callers at TC's this year.
    BTW, they shut me down about the trade MW thing and said he'd be fine and do a good job. I'm still eating crow over that one.

    Always best to be on the other side of whatever Bayless is b!tching about...

    And if it's "Man Up Monday" ol' Skippy will have to wait 'til Tuesday, won't he.

    MEH!!! While I remain cautiously optimistic, I still have a better feeling about this 2-0 team v. last year's 2-0 team. I don't think we'll win in N.O. this weekend, but we should play a better game and not fold like last year's non-existent defense.

    I'll pass. I enjoy gloating when I'm right, but I hate admitting when I'm wrong. :runaway:

    Sorry, didn't see anything wrong with what Bayless said. He's right. We need to actually do something and beat a upper echelon opponent, before we're put in the top 5 of NFL power rankings (not that a give a crap about power rankings to begin with). I'm in the same camp as skip...."show me". and Houston will get their chance this weekend and next weekend at home.

    Meh, screw Bayless and the path he skipped in on. His opinion on the Texans is about as relevant as my opinion on Dancing with the Stars.

    Right, Skip Bayless also said the Cowboys would go to the Super Bowl last year. You see how that worked out. Even with Tony Romo healthy, that wasn't gonna happen.

    I hope we win. I want to win. I can't quite bring myself to expect to win because lets face facts, the Saints are very, very good and we're playing in New Orleans. I'm not conceding anything when I say that if the Texans don't win I will be mostly concerned with how they lost not that they lost.

    If we upset the Saints I will be very impressed with this team. If we lose but make them earn it I will not be gnashing my teeth and pulling my hair out over the Texans falling short again (though most of these people nationally giving us all this praise after two wins over poor to mid-tier opponents will be pointing fingers).

    I will only be upset with the Texans if they sleepwalk into the Superdome and lay down for the Saints. That's the only outcome I won't be able to tolerate. Getting destroyed and not making a game of it would indeed be "Same old Texans" again.

    It's still a opinion.


    I'm extremely excited about the Texans this season. I have money on this game, but when he said show me, he's right. The early signs have been great so far. They jumped on the Colts early and snuffed them out. The Dolphins game was a decent test and a good road victory. It was sloppy, but the team made big plays on offense, defense, and special teams to remain in control. However the Saints barely lost to the Packers and blew out the Bears. I'd rather wait until after this game before I rank them. I want to see how the run defense holds up this week. NOLA has RBs.

    The Saints are that first early season test. I can't wait.



    BTW I don't agree with Skip's top 5 rankings of the AFC. That was stupid. :vincepalm: People are giving the Jets wins. Dallas gave them one and if the Jags had any QB at all the Jets would've lost that game.

    I could see the Texans losing the next 3 games. Hope I'm wrong. (But it doesn't matter)

    The playoffs this yr are going to come down to

    1. Beating the Tacks (It's about time)
    2. Winning the last 3 games (Gary it is on you)

    I believe this will happen and the Texans cherry will be popped. (Welcome to the playoffs< 1st rd payoff exit)

    I don't see us getting destroyed. In Wade I trust, in Koob not so much. I have faith Wade's defense will put the offense in the best possible position they can to win. It's up to Koob to figure out after that. Get it done Koob.

    I am confused.


    Texans getting a LOT of talk but no national press.

    They're getting no respect, but don't deserve any because they haven't proven anything, other than being ranked unreasonably high in several power rankings.


    Wha???

    and I am confused as to the actual nature of your confusion
    :D

    seriously though, you didn't really pose a clear question. There are other threads - too many really - about, what we perceive, as a lack of respect/notariety/coverage regarding the Texans when it comes to the nationwide media outlets.

    soooo whutchu talkin' 'bout willis?
