For the better part of 9 years I've been waiting to watch this game. Not a dominant win over a lousy team. Not a fluke victory over a hated rival. Not a win over a quality team mailing it in while waiting for the playoffs to begin. I've been waiting on this game. A 30 point come from behind victory against a team that we don't know like the back of our hands in their house with thousands of fans screaming against us and no reason to win except that for ****s sake we aren't about to lose this game. I've been waiting to see the Texans whip out a pair of nuts the size of bowling balls and stand up in the second half and tell another team (tell being "code" for smacking the crap out of them) that "Oh no, that's not the way this ends". I've been waiting to see the Texans decide that they've had just about enough of this crap and it stops right frigging now. Today I saw that. I was proud last week and I was disappointed in the first half this week. I won't deny that the thought of turning the TV off and going to work on my yard crossed my mind. I wanted to. I really did. I've been down this road so many times before (as have all of you) and I was ready to do some weeding in the back yard but.... I just couldn't get the thought out of my mind that last week they didn't look like the same Texans I was used to seeing. They weren't. These Texans are serious about this ****. There isn't a single remaining member of the expansion team left. Nobody. As much as I like Kris Brown (and if you don't like him you can kiss my ass) I know he's not the kicker for this team. He's a great guy and someone I want to live next door to but he's not the kicker I want trying to win a game in overtime. Nobody quit today. Nobody mailed it in. Gary Kubiak was a dumb **** for not trying to kick it on that first possession in overtime and I don't think I'll ever be a fan of his but I'll be damned if these guys aren't (finally) playing their asses off for him. If they're ready to live or die with Kubiak than who am I to question that? I'm in. I'm re-sold on this team. I'm grinning ear to ear. I'm finally entirely satisfied with every aspect of this team. I'm a demanding fan and something of an asshole and I know it but today I saw my football team and I'm here for the duration. Next week the UNDEFEATED Houston Texans will host the WINLESS Dallas Cowboys and I can't ask for anything more than that.
