First off I was born and raised a Dallas Cowboys fan so my comments are coming from the thoughts of a Cowboys fan. If you know how I like to voice my opinions on shit like this….Amy…..I would say don’t even bother continuing to read this post.
i got a shitload to say about Texans fans. for one….its pre-season and they are acting like its regular season. They play their starters while other teams play their 2nd and 3rd string players. of course you will see better performance. they are seasoned players. Dallas has won 5 super bowls yes. Texans have NO room to talk on that aspect of history because they have no history when it comes to post season play. Last year the Texans were HOPING that another team would win or lose i cant remember off-hand but instead of EARNING their spot in the playoffs they sat around hoping for another team to allow them to SLIDE into the playoffs. Thats not how it works. You earn your spot then you have something brag about. Then i hear fans say we got the best QB, RB, CB or whatever…..You may have the best QB but who won the super bowl? Aaron Rodgers did! SO all that we got the best this and that doesn’t mean shit if they cant prove it on the field. ANother thing…..Wade Phillips did NOT invent the 3-4 defense so Texans fans stop saying its HIS defense because frankly…..you folks hate the Dallas Cowboys and yet your team is using a defense that Bud Wilkenson invented. So stop taking credit for something that you didnt create. Another thing…..you all say you have the best tailgating parties. heh…..ever been to a Green Bay or Pittsburgh one? probably not. Houston doesn’t have shit on their parties.
Texans fans are always quick to say we are going to the super bowl and playoffs. The season hasn’t started yet. Let your team do their job first before you talk. I also remember the Texans doing well in their pre-season games and look what happened in the regular season……you guys gave up so many games to stupidity. Your player bats the ball into the opponents hands and lets them score at the end of the game….WOW…thats something a Pee-Wee player would do! You guys/gals also praise this name Texans. Dont forget the DALLAS TEXANS first had that name. You all just added a stupid horns logo. Dallas is no where near being considered America’s team anymore but the history speaks for itself. True history means nothing to the current season but if history didnt mean shit at all then why do commentators mention the MANY super bowls Pittsburgh has won? Or the first one Lombardi won with the Packers…..exactly! History does matter in some context. If history never mattered in any given situation then why are kids made to study it? Why do we base our current Government on past events to make it better? History will always be there. You can hate on people for bringing it up but look at it this way. When Los Angeles gets a team in the near future and those fans start to talk shit to you, well they have no room to talk….Why? Because if your a Texans fan your team has history behind it and theirs doesn’t.
The Texans can keep trying to make history. Ill give them that but until that team can have something to show for it like an AFC Title or Super Bowl…you really dont have much to brag about. All those numbers dont mean shit in the end. Its the BIG game that matters to the players. They play for the super bowl. Not to get a halfway decent season. Nothing wrong with a little harmless shit talking between opposing fans but the reason you guys get shit talked about you is because you dont give credit where it is due. The only team to accomplish anything in Houston is the Rockets. Well and the Aeros. Astros cant even have a winning season because they dont know how to keep or get good players. Let the players do the talking on the field but when you diss teams that have won titles, your really just jealous because your own hasn’t achieved that….yet….Historic teams create historic players. Just because one guy is the best in his college and is the highest paid player to enter the NFL Draft does not mean he will be the best player on the field. You earn it. Thats how you get respect.
#22 of the Atlanta Falcons Jacquizz Rodgers is new to the NFL yet he has shown promising results in pre-season. Thats not regular though. He might not do well at all against pro veteran starters. Then again he might. I remember years ago how David Carr was the starting QB for the Texans. When people criticized him the fans went nuts. Then before the season started he was let go and sent to another team. Immediately fans started saying he sucks and that he was a worthless player. Few days or weeks before they was praising him now they was talking shit about him. What kind of attitude is that as a true fan? Look at Mike Vick. People dont like him because of the dog fiasco yet he goes in and does his job quite well and the fans can appreciate that even if they didnt like him. I cant say I am a true fan of the NFL because I know I talk shit. A true fan appreciates the game in all aspects and can appreciate the teams for their respective accomplishments. To attend a game like the Super Bowl and still stay in your seat well after your team might have lost shows you appreciate the game. your pissed cause your team lost yet those guys on both sides of the field are champions. They made it through the season to the finale.
The shit talking from Texans fans pisses me off. Yet Dallas fans do it too just as much as any other fans from other teams. Its one reason I dont pay much attention to the game anymore. I get my opinions out like now and I let it be. Ive praised players from the Texans but in the end they still fell short. As did Dallas last year. Last year the Texans fans were saying Dallas was going to be the worst team in the league. They came back with a new coach and new attitude that Wade Phillips didnt have. He didnt get after his players. Instead he hung his head down low and pondered over what could have happened. He didnt belong there. Im sure for the Texans he will be the fit they was looking for. Of course in the end of that season last year Dallas and Houston had 8 a piece at the end. So you can add up the numbers and say Shaub was better but for a 2nd string QB to come in under a new coach and end the season with 8 wins and tie the Texans in wins is not too shabby if you ask me. Pre-season is an evaluation period. If your going to look at those games as “wow we won 3 games to none and you Dallas fags lost one” then your full of shit. Pre-season means nothing. Once a team gets past regular season and earns their spot in the post-season then that regular season doesnt mean shit anymore. Its over. The only thing that matters is how you play those next set of games. You either want it or you dont. Dallas isnt the team they once was. There is something called the Ring of Honor in Cowboys Stadium. It honors players that have surpassed what others accomplished within the team. It doesnt matter that Dallas has numerous people in the Hall of Fame or on that Ring of Fame but their performance and numbers didnt lie. They went beyond what others did. Emmitt Smith is a legend as is Walter Payton. They are historic figures in the game. If they didnt matter then why even honor them? I was never an Oilers fan yet I give respect to Earl Campbell, Bruce Matthews and Ray Childress because even though the Oilers didnt attain a Super Bowl, they became iconic figures in Houston sports. So let your Texans create icons first before you start talking down about other teams iconic players. Those players on the Texans im sure had icons of their own and im sure some of them were former Cowboys players. Remember there was such a thing as the Doomsday Defense. Now you all go enjoy your football because NHL is all im ready for! haha
