I think this guy has a secret man crush on Andrew luck.

You stole this from me on the other thread.

Consider this a cease and desist.

I don't blame him, he's probably ticked off that the Colts go from Manning to Luck and the Texans have to endure another 14 years of competition. He probably wanted the Colts to be in reconstruction mode and to suck for 4-5 years. Sometimes that shocks people when things don't go he way they like.

His articles make the Bleacher report (which I would guess is his utlimate career goal) look like the NY Times or BBC.

I assume (but who knows?) that he is trying to be funny, but totally failing .....

....I can't believe that there are that many worthless sports writers (he's got a long way to go to rise to the bottom where he'll find Bayless, Whitlock, etc)

It appears the rag he writes for is the kind of free tabloid you pick up and skim while in Qdoba or Panera, then throw out with the trash. Like Kravitz, he writes to incite, and thus succeeds when you pick up a paper copy of his his rag, or give him a page hit.

Houston's sports history is that of losing. And as the fifth largest metropolitan area in the US, it has to be devastating to not remotely be discussed in the same way as NY, LA, Chicago, Philly, DC, SF, and worse for them, even Dallas. Add to this inferiority complex the fact the Colts have owned the AFC South since Houston (who couldn't keep their first few teams even with a metropolitan area as vast as it is) came back to the NFL, and the petty, small, and petulant tone doesn't surprise me. It's still a cow-town, even with all that oil money. Maybe the writer should just go back to shopping for really big belt buckles and animal husbandry gloves.

Seriously, the guy writes for a travel-site version of bleacherreport. He's just gunning for page views, let him be.

This one is certainly less worse than the last one, I can care less how much he criticized Andrew Luck; he is a rookie after all. However, in the last article one of his main focal points was to rip on Indy fans using generalizations.

I like it better his way. Too much lavish praise creates unrealistic expectations. This way, there is easily some major room for Luck to improve in the writer's (cough, cough) eyes.

Hi everyone I'm new here.

First off I am a die hard Saints fan as you can tell by my handle.

But I am also a Peyton Manning fan and I live here in Houston.

All I can tell you is that whether they are saying it or not, people here (media included) are very worried about this game coming up and about Andrew Luck in general.

The Texans have never had an elite quarterback and they still don't.

They have pretty much been owned by the Colts ever since Peyton was there and now that Luck is there the same will continue.

They already know that Luck is better than Schaub and he's just a rookie! He's only going to get better especially after you get some help on the O line.

I hope Luck destroys the Texans.

Go Colts.

Welcome and thanks for a constructive post!

I don't know that we will own the Texans this year (though hope so) - but certainly expect it next year!

Cheers :)

Houston's own Anna Megan Raley... on the DD show, DD had no game for her. She is the coolest lady in all of sports talk radio... And she taught A Luck "all he know's" ... hehehe

Why are they interviewing her?

She works at 610 doing what I don't know.

And she's basically a Texans groupie.

I laughed just reading the article.

I thought it was funny that the guy is so worried about the Colts coming in and beating the Texans, he was already wanting to call the game.

Double D saw her at the Super Bowl last year and fell in love with her. Sersiously he first had her on because he kept telling his producer to grab her because he wanted to interview her because he thought she was hot.

With that said the few times I've heard her on his show she does know her stuff and does a good job and was able to give people the low down on Luck before we took him. She is 100% in Luck's corner and has been saying since the Super Bowl that Luck was the no brainer choice for the top overall pick and she had covered both him and RG3.

He saw what Luck did to Detroit, didn't he say we were going to get splattered in the previous article? I don't know but he is right out of the mop-bucket I use to clean my scummy bathroom here in my van down by the river. I wish nothing but mouse droppings on his bed sheets for Christmas.

Worried? I don't think so. I don't know what part of the town you live in but no, I don't think many people here are worried at all, for various reasons. 12 is in no way better than Schaub, by any stretch of the imagination. If we win the SB this year, and next year, Schaub still wouldn't get any respect, so I don't care about the whole elite label. Guess what? The Bulls on Parade are only going to get better too. And to think...so many people doubt us and think we are incomplete and not true contenders, when we are 11-2. Imagine what our record would be if we are really contenders? 500-0? I think the "destroying" will be coming from the other side, if we want to talk "destroying". How's your team doing again this year? I see that their elite quarterback is doing things to make the people of New Orleans proud.

4th largest city, actually. We don't want to be discussed, and we definitely don't need the media circus that comes with the Cowboys or Jets or Eagles as we all see how that turned out for those teams this year. Cow town? Yeah, dude. We still ride horses, drink moonshine, use outhouses, and wrestle pigs down here. You should come on down, I'm sure you'll have fun. Oh stereotypes. They never get old.

Get back to me when Schaub wins a playoff game. Then we will talk. And don't come back with "Luck hasn't won one" bc he hasn't had the chance to, being a rookie. Sure we got pasted by the Pats, but at least we kept it a game for a half...and we weren't expected to do anything this season. What is your excuse for the "Bull on Parade" getting Pamplona'd by the Pats? You had the big 11-1 record....

Yeah, it's Schaub's fault he went out with an injury before he could get to the postseason last year. We'll be seeing a win this year, I think. You let them put up 59...yeah that's keeping it a game. 11-2 now, buddy, soon to be 12-2, if I'm looking at my crystal ball right...By the way, still the best record in the AFC. Just putting that out there for ya.

    • No, not at all. Injuries are the only thing they do report fast.    Last year and the year before that and the year before that they would tweet out updates anytime a play was made, they would tweet out anytime a player looks good or bad, and nearly everytime you'd refresh the browser there would be plenty of updates. This year? They take 20 to 30 minutes to tweet any updates. And when they do tweet its something vague. 
    • Why?  Because they did not tell you Langford's status in the half second after it happened?    
    • Thank you.  My favorite thing about the interview was : " Hope so, hope so. But that’s definitely been a point of focus for me this offseason, just getting better at rushing the passer, because it was almost embarrassing for me last year — at least coming from college, where whenever I worked one of my moves, I kind of expected to beat the guy. In the league, I guess you kind of have to accept that the dudes across from you are getting paid quite a bit, too. You’re not going to win every single time, so that’s definitely been a focal point for me, working on that this offseason for sure. "  
    • Baltimore should Thank Charles Dickens for the name of there football team as well as Cleveland for there team simply put the team & name come from outside Baltimore . They celebrate a team & name whose origins are from elsewhere while trying to tell Indianapolis Colts fans how Colts history & a Lombardi belong to there city .    “You will be greatly shocked and grieved,” Charles Dickens wrote to a friend in 1841, “to hear that the Raven is no more!” His pet raven, Grip, had died. At the behest of his children, Dickens wrote poor Grip in his most recent book, Barnaby Rudge, maintaining in its pages Grip’s name and his loquacious powers of imitating human speech. In 1842, Edgar Allan Poe shook hands with Charles Dickens in Philadelphia, and spoke about Barnaby Rudge, which Poe had recently reviewed with the criticism that Dickens should have given the raven a prophetic presence in the story. In 1845, a prophetic raven was penned into existence, this time by the American author. The creation spawned reproach itself, as some judged Mr. Poe as lying in the shadow of Mr. Dickens, as may be derived from James R. Lowell’s journalistic jingle: Here comes Poe with his raven, like Barnaby Rudge,
      Three-fifths of him genius and two-fifths sheer fudge. 170 years later, however, nearly everyone knows Poe’s raven, and nearly no one knows Dickens’—or even Barnaby Rudge’s, for that matter. Grip the raven is forgotten; another raven holds the world in its grip: the raven named Nevermore. As Poe purposefully reincarnated Dickens’ merry raven into his macabre ravings, so too do people purposefully reincarnate the relentless madness of Poe’s raven into their own ravings—making them beautiful in their terror. Your welcome for the history lesson interesting as it might be , Baltimore of old & new was made by others in other cities & enjoyed by many who created nothing much without the help of others so that Baltimore could call it its own , history evolves those who fail to study it do not .
