Tough one

It will be difficult to cheer for my Texans this sunday when they take the field against the Tennessee Titans. I, being from south Texas myself, like to watch Vince Young but also being from Houston have the hometown team feeling. It is sure to be a great match no matter whoI root for. 2 of the top 3 draft picks will be meeting up in this game so watching thier performance against each other in thier rookie year will be interesting to say the least.

Houston No Worse Than 2005

Hey, it only took us to Week 7 to match our win total of last season. But enough about past times.

What was most encouraging about our solid 27-7 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars was that we presented a defense. I knew we kinda sucked at defense, but it hadn't sunk in how badly until the sportscasters were contrasting our 418-yards-a-game average coming into this one with the mere 220 yards we gave up this time.

Beautiful to force some turnovers, too! Especially when they blossom into TDs! Why didn't I buy tickets for that one??

The stars at night

10 years ago, the Oilers left the state known for it's rich oil reserves and many derricks. A long wait of 6 years passed beofore Houston was given The Texans and 70 thousand people packed the newly constructed Reliant Stadium to witness the new team kick the snot out of thier neighbors to the north. No Houston resident was dissapointed as thier boys took the win with a 19-10 victory over the Cowboys. Well history repeats itself and after a week off the field the Texans will be heading to Dallas for another historical match again the Dallas Cowboys on thier home field, Texas Stadium. It really doesn't matter who loses when Texas Wins!

My Hometown

I do miss Houston. The Bayou City with the newest NFL franchise around. The Houston Texans, led by David Carr, were showing promise in the preseason as thier record showed a 3-1 W-L ratio. The real deal is upon us though and the team is struggling, losing thier first three games of the regular season, thier record has done a 180 and now stands at a measly 1-3 W-L. Carr will have some time to think for a while as the Texans enter thier bye week after a much needed victory over the miami Dolphins. Carr and crew will return to the field on October 15th to face off against thier home state rivals, The Dallas Cowboys! I still need to go get a ticket for this one. What was I thinking!?

The Eyes Of Texas Are Upon You, Mario!

Yep, all the Houston Texans folks were watching when Mario Williams reached up and popped the football out of its trajectory towards Miami's Chris Chambers and a two-point conversion that would have tied today's game with the Miami Dolphins at 17 with seconds to go. Well, everybody was watching but Gary Kubiak, that is; the coach said sometimes he finds he just has to make the call and walk away.

One thing Kubiak can look at now is the end of our winless streak, which stood at 3 losses this season plus a couple from last year if you wanted to go back that far. Me, I'd rather look at this and look ahead to an extra week of gearing up to take on the Dallas Cowboys at Texas Stadium on the 15th. Got your tickets, Texans?
