    Does anyone else want the media to hush up a bit? All this talk of us being super bowl contenders and the best team in the NFL makes me nervous. This morning 610 was even talking about Schaub being an MVP candidate. I'm probably just suffering from PTSD from my years of abuse as an Oiler fan, let down in the playoffs 7 years in a row but I wish everyone would just chill.

    doesn't matter what the media says, this team is ready. I believe the Texans are focused on the next opponent and what they have to do as well. It's like every week they correct the past weeks mistakes but have new one that are minor and don't affect the game. This could be the week they loose but I truly believe what ever any body says, it won't phase this team on accomplishing their goal. They look mean out there.

    Fear is the main source of superstition, and one of the main sources of cruelty. To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I prefer psalm 111's version 'the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom' ;) ... After all I'm not superstitious at all... And I say... (in my admittedley limited knowledge)... These bad boys can go all the way!! Go Texans

    Oh, Lord, please let everyone out there believe that the Texans are a sniveling glob of gutless jello!

    The important part is, the Media, to my recollection, had never called us SB contenders this far into the season....

    Not in the negative sense, no... and to be fair this isn't a religious or philosophical thread on the Bible or the thoughts of Bertrand Russell so we'll keep it that way.... One thing we probably agree on ... Many teams, to some degree or another fear playing the Texans at the moment.. Having said that, the more other teams underestimate us the better!

    I think a certain amount of fear is wise to have to keep you honest, so long as you don't let it hump your leg. :kitten:

    I enjoy fans of other teams saying this about our team when we play them: "This is not going to go well for us":brando:

    I guess it's just hard to internalize after 10 years of sh1t!

    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the innereyetosee its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.

    Only I will remain.

    Problem is, if the national media stops talking about us, there will be 5,000 threads on this board about how the Texans aren't getting any respect. This is a no-win.

    The best thing to do is to enjoy the media coverage and attention, but don't take it too seriously.

    I don't think it's the media, but our own success that makes other teams fear us. Every team is gonna circle you on the calendar when your record is heavily slanted in the win column
