    USA Today has jumped onto the Texan bandwagon with a front page picture and article.

    Link

    This is a nice little article - nothing new, but some more positive press as the media continues to jump on our ever growing wagon.

    As nice as this article is, I noticed not one of their sports guys predicted a Texan win. I guess they haven't fully committed to believing just yet.:cowboy1: After Sunday, there will be a veritable plethora of believers.

    Good find. Right now, we're kind of a novelty, maybe this years "Cinderella" team. I'm not surprised that not too many national media :stooges: are picking us to win. Only us :homer: would actually wager any serious $$ on the Texans to win. We can change all that with a win, or at least a close game like the Tacks had with them last weekend. If we at least hang in there with the Colts this weekend, I see the bandwagon overflowing. I, for one, am enjoying the bandwagoneers. It's awesome to see our team mentioned nationally with no joke attached to it.

    I dreamt last night that the Texans shut out the Colts. I hope that it becomes a reality on Sunday. :fans:

    I sh*t you not. I had the very same dream. Although, I'm kind of in hot water with the girlfriend. I actually woke up at 4:30am with unbridled excitement and I just HAD to wake her up and tell her all about it. She is NOT a morning person. Especially when it comes to football.

    Great read by UsaToday.

    I liked Chester's comments about Carr. Seems right on the money.

    This is something I liked. Having each guy bemore accountable and the way it is worded, it just does not seem like that was the case with the old staff.

    HA! Funny, my girl is the same way. I don't think she'll ever understand me as a Texans fanatic.

    Guys, what are we going to do when people praise us all of the time? Don't you think that we will want to be underdogs all over again?

    hasn't hurt the Colts or Patriots. to me, any team that's affected that much by hype probably doesn't deserve to win anyhow.

    To be fair, they are the defending Super Bowl champs and have given no reason to believe they're not just as dominant. It's just a sensible pick. However, it's the wrong one, too!:fans:

    It's good to see the national media talking about the Texans in a positive light. I became a fan of the Texans before they were even called the Texans. I was an Oiler fan until Adams yanked the team to Tennessee, and when I heard that Houston was awarded an expansion team I had a team to root for again.

    Living in San Antonio, where everything is Dallas, Dallas, and more Dallas, the Texans were hardly ever even on TV here. Now that they're winning I can see them on TV here regularly. Sweet.

    This is by far the biggest game in Houston NFL history. Even without Andre I like our chances. He only caught 4 passes in last year's game at Reliant, so I see no reason why we should not win this game. We have a top 5 legitimate defense and the Baby Horses only beat Tennessee by 2 last week. It's gonna be a great game.

    Last night, our kid's high school, Southwestern Heights Mustangs, won their game with a 41-8 victory making them 4-0! When Megan told me of the victory and the score, the random thought popped into my head that the Texans' win will be very similar.

    Now THATS wild! :wild:

    I was feeling that this game would be very close with a victory either way, but being high teens or low twenties. Now, I just don't know. Winning has a tendency of snowballing for those whose time as been slow coming and hard fought.

    Here's to MY team, the Houston Texans! :texflag:
