    What is it? What are the things that make you tune in every week possibly knowing that the game could turn out like it always has? Don't get me wrong, i'm die hard, but I've never seen a game where itmakes me proud to be a fan. Even the way we lose gets me riled. I mean i'm happy were not in colts condition, but you can look at a similar team (Tennessee) and respect their losses. I can never say I respected a Texan win or loss this season, even vs the colts.

    So what makes you love them.

    I would rather be. They are going to have Peyton back at QB next year and possibly Andrew Luck as his back up. Damn!!!!!!!

    That's it, period. I don't think I'd choose them as "my favorite team" if I was from some place like Montana or something. But, I live here and I'm a "root for the hometeam" kind of guy.....through good times & bad.

    I honestly don't have an answer for that.

    I guess I could say...well, (sigh) I don't really know. I'm trying real hard here, I really am, but at the end of the day...what DO we have to be proud of?

    Jim Harbaugh has a perennially sucky 49ers team (don't be mad at me, Vinny) looking like world beaters right now, having just taken down a 5-0 Lions team in the Lions' own stadium. I'm proud that the 49ers are an American football team, since I am a proud American. That's the only pride I feel right now.

    This should be a really short thread.

    When we (Texans) have more points on the scoreboard than the other team when the game is over.

    I am also proud to be a texan fan as it does represent this city. However at least the 9'ers fans can be proud of their amazing run defense, even if they had a losing record. Other than being from houston and having andre/foster, I cant fully get behind this team. Even if we end up with a losing record there is still honor in knowing we have SOMEthing there to be proud of. I can't say im proud of anything that we accomplished.

    The fact that, despite season after season of falling short, analysts and sports journalists continue to have us as the season's up-and-coming team and a playoff hopeful.

    OK, I found what makes me proud of this team:

    Batman Arkham City is released on Monday at midnight. I can grab a controller and kick henchmen's asses.

    Why didn't I think of that earlier? Doy.
