sounds like a smartbutt, that either hasnt watched Luck play or hasnt paid attention. like one of those people willing to make a bet without knowing the rules of the bet to begin with. ignorant. i get it, he gets a lot of praise and attention for being a rookie, guess what . . .its deserved. kid is for reelz

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.

or pay me to write your material :D

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.

Fixed it for ya. :thmup:

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

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.

Why are they interviewing her?

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

And she's basically a Texans groupie.

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.

Why is everybody (seemingly) giving this attention seeking hack job the time of day in giving his thoughts on Luck (or any article that he writes seemingly in such poor taste)or anything Colts related? pointless article by a FOOL that just wants to stir the pot while making money doing it....The timing of this article should not fool anyone.....12-13-12

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.

I know, really. QuizBoy just wants to stir things up here, or maybe it's his cousin. Regardless, the next person to bring up this hack of a writer should be banned.

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.

    • Im not sure what happened but everyone has a different gamepass except the US now. NFL decided to sell all the international licenses or something I guess. We got switched to the DAZN app here in Canada, and I know my buddy in Germany has it too (hence my asking if you guys got switched to it as well). Its like a Netflix subscription but for live streaming sports. Seems like a great idea but its been brutal so far. Even when it works the audio has been a good 5 seconds off of the video. Plus has the same issues crashing that you mentioned with your GamepassEU, as well as the lack of real support. Worst part is that we cant even get NFL Sunday Ticket or the NFL Network through cable anymore either, so we are stuck with this app or semi-illegal streams. Sucks to hear that other platforms arent doing well either (especially one with the actual Gamepass name attached to it).  Hopefully they all get it figured out, cuz its looking to be a rough time for everyone involved if this keeps up. 
    • Can I dare to dream that Natson could be resigned?  Still don't think the depth at WR is enough with Rogers' fragility and the return game could do with an injection.   Has he been picked up?
    •   Last year I think everyone in the world just had access to the same Gamepass, whereas this year they have split it so that we have "GamePassEU" which is separate to the other Gamepass platforms, and it has been an absolute nightmare.    Almost all the regular kick off games on Sunday had major issues in the first half, I must have only seen about 10 minutes of action as kept having to restart the app.   I didn't have Gamepass last year but a lot of people saying that the app is actually a lot worse with less content and features than previously (we only got coaches film available last week).  The worst part is that you cant actually speak to a human about the issues, need to go over twitter or a contact us on their site which doesn't get answered.   We don't have DAZN in the UK I think, but others I Europe do.   To be fair to them, the game last week worked perfectly well for me (wish it was the other way round!) and they have been trying to put more apps together (PS4, Samsung TV, LG TV, etc) which was a big negative of the old GP.  Hopefully issues are ironed out in time for Andrew's return when we start tearing up the league!
    •   In fairness to @masterlock I don't think he deserves the hounding for starting the thread.  He is not saying "let's start Brissett over Luck", just comparing them and the fact Brissett has looked every bit an NFL starter, which he has.   He even mentions it is only two games and that only time will tell.   Sometimes this board is a bit too quick to jump on people just trying to start a conversation.
    • What do you guys have over there? Did you guys get stuck with that DAZN app too? Its been terrible so far.
