Repeat From 3 Weeks Ago: Nobody Believes In The Atlanta Falcons And Houston TexansEd The Sports Fan, Football — By E. Maisonet, III on December 11, 2012 at 9:08 am
Seriously, didn’t we just have this conversation like three weeks ago? I could’ve sworn we did.
Of course I did.
The Houston Texans came out on Monday Night Football with America once again willing to give the other team from Texas a shot to prove its worth versus a legitimate, formidable foe in the New England Patriots. Hell, the Texans were 11-1 for goodness’ sakes. This is the team I picked to win the AFC Championship. This is it, right? They’ll at least be able to hang with the Patriots … right?
Those fools got curbstomped and skulldrug up and down the field in front of Patriots fans and furious television viewers who scheduled their Monday night just to watch an enjoyable football game. These ingrates couldn’t even get that part right. Now, this realization from ESPN’s Paul Kuharsky is plainly evident for every Texans fan to digest, and their chances for a Super Bowl appearance are mighty slim:
The Texans’ two losses have come against Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady. They gave up a lot to Peyton Manning in a victory, too. This team’s odds of beating two Hall of Fame quarterbacks in the playoffs, even if both games are at Reliant Stadium, are low. The Texans would benefit greatly from an upset dished out by someone else in the wild-card round or by New England and Denver playing each other in a divisional-round game.
Hey Matt Schaub, you remember when you said that you wouldn’t want Detroit Lions lineman Ndamukong Suh to play for you guys, because he doesn’t embody the “Houston Texan worthy”? Man, please. Get that bullshit outta here.
As far as those Atlanta Falcons are concerned? People are bailing off of that bandwagon like a leaky Titanic ship. Hell, even Tony Gonzalez knows what’s happening:
“It better be a bump in the road, if we’re the team we think we are. I can hear them right now. They’re getting off the bandwagon. I can hear them jumping off. But that’s how it goes. And looking at our history, a lot of people are going to say, ‘Well, see, I told you’ and whatever.” — Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez
Ole two points scoring ass dudes.
Yes, this post is nothing but frustration. I think that unless you hate the Texans and the Falcons (outside of Saints fans, who hates either of these two teams?) a lot of fans would love to see these two teams make a legitimate run at a championship. The league and its never-ending quest for parity would love it too. But goodness gracious, you play like this on MNF vs. the Patriots or lose embarrassingly to a team that was jockeying for position for the No. 1 pick in the 2013 draft, and I just can’t do it anymore.
The Texans and the Falcons should be ashamed of themselves, and as far as I’m concerned, they are no longer to be trusted.
