    Hey, Texans fans!

    Now is your chance to vote the Opening Day loss by the Cowboys as their WORST moment in Dallas sports:

    I was tempted to pick the Leon Lett Snow Bowl moment, seeing as how I was AT that game, but the chance to make the Texans loss stick was too good to pass up.

    By the way, they also bash Rowdy by making him one of their nominees:

    Vote 'Texans game'!

    They've also got McGrady posterizing Bradley as one of the most embarrassing moments.

    I couldn't agree more. I'll never forget seeing the field for the first time at the open house. That was one pretty field. The grass just ain't gonna work though, unless the buy 10 fields.

    It's Jackie Smith dropping the TD in Super Bowl XIII...no poll needed. The others are trying for (a distant) 2nd place.

    No doubt. Dropping a wide open sure TD in a SB game is much worse than anything that could happen in a regular season game. Or some ninny prancing around on your logo.

    Roger Staubach took the blame for Jackie Smith dropping that pass.

    He said they never thought he'd get so open and he threw the ball too hard instead of just dropping it in there.

    I think Jackie Smith is in the HOF so that hardly defines his career but it seems to be the one everybody remembers.

    I have to agree with this one. The way Jerruh treated the coaching change was a disgrace to the cowboy franchise. I never liked the boys but I respected coach Landry.

    come on now, the most embarresing thing that every happened was when Testaverde stepped up under his GUARD for the ball last season. :shocked

    I could understand a pee wee league QB doing that but an NFL QB who had played for that many years? That has to be the all time worst, IMHO, :heh: and it didn't even make the list. :hmmm:

    yep. I'll try and see if a fellow Texan fan I know will post the picture for you. He has it saved. Let me email him and see if he would be so kind. :heh:

    It definitely happened. Heck I am even a Cowboys fan after the Texans and that was a roll on the floor laughing moment. Don't remember which game though.

    That's not unique to Vinny.

    I saw Troy do the same thing in person once back years ago. Pretty funny. :)

    I agree about Coach Landry. He was a wonderful person and a fine coach.
