CBS picks Cowboys over Texans

Gary+Kubiak+Houston+Texans+v+San+Francisco+-JsahzEWtO5lThe Houston Texans are 6-3 and because they play in the Division II AFC South they are primed for their first division title as well as first playoff appearance ever. Good for Houston. Diehard fans south as those who live in a city that feels like the inside of someone's mouth should be rewarded with a playoff game every now and then.

Houston should have playoff NFL football for the first time since 1993. That was the season Jack Pardee and Warren Moon led the Oilers to a 12-4 record, which resulted in a 28-20 division playoff loss to Joe Montana and the Chiefs back on Jan. 16, 1994.

But despite this new, cute success by the Texans they are still not any bigger than what is right now an average Dallas Cowboys professional football team.

Or that's what CBS says.

CowboysfeudOn Sunday at noon the Texans will play the Bucs in Tampa.
At the same time, the Cowboys will host the Bills at Jerry World.

According to the Houston Chronicle, the only places in the state where you can watch the Texans/Bucs game will be KHOU in Houston, KFDM in Beaumont, KBTX in Bryan-College Station and KXTS in Victoria.
Every other CBS station in Texas will carry the Cowboys game instead.

If you really are a Texans fan, it's either a sports bar, or DirecTV.

I enjoy the NFL. And I like the Texans. They are a good team that finally has a real shot at this thing now that Peyton Manning is on the side-line.

Despite that I'd still rather see Dallas play Buffalo. I think the Bills can be exciting and you never know which Dallas team is going to show up.

The Bucs vs Texans just doesn't seem that lively of a maitch up.

Go Dallas!

You are a complete ididot man!

Whatever it takes to make yourself feel better man...by all means indulge yourself...everyone needs a break from reality every once in awhile...

Mac,

Actually, we are a big deal. After all, a guy from a Metroplex that has it's own team, maybe even the self proclaimed "America's Team" is giving us some air time. Welcome to the changing of the guard.

Enjoy mediocrity, good sir.

GO TEXANS!

Houston is the team now. It's over in Big D. You have a great owner, a sweet stadium, but the product on the field is dead. Houston is taking over. Get over it man.

I now see why the folks down there refer to the DFW area as the armpit of Texas. You are a legend in your own mind.

Wade left Jerrys World and moved to a program that enables him to operate,the results are in the numbers.

Mac,

Although the arrogance of cryboy fans is usually frustrating, this time it's just funny. The division II afc south is not much worse than nfc "least". Fact, the texans are the better texas team and you can't handle it. Fact, while houston may feel like the inside of someone's mouth, dallas feels like the inside of someones rectum.

What an arss!!!

This guy is an idiot.
Quite living in the past cowboys fan.
"cute success" It beats being a bad team in a bad division. Texans have been there so I know how it feels but when we sucks I could admit it.
Get over yourself Mac

Really? What was the point of this article? Let's take a quick look at reality. Seahawks almost beat these guys. Just explain to me about the Eagles game? What was that? The Cowgirls are what we thought they were. .500 ball! that in way puts you in any position to gloat. But when you go out your way to tell people that you are America's Team, when clearly Pittsburg and Te saints are clearly mor eof America's team that what you come to expect. And stop acting your weather is better than Houston's. It freaking snows in Dallas, and it's way too close to your inbred cousin Oklahoma. Let's see what sports bar the Cowgirls and their idiot fans will be watching the play-offs at come January...idiot!

Anal Blast

Dallas Cowboyz love to ride the chocolate highway to Brown Town. And the Texanz are like Nigga thats gay!

The Cowboys are mediocre this year, and won't make the playoffs. As a matter of fact, they haven't accomplished anything in years. They're old news. Sit back and enjoy the Texans. They're winning it all this year. Bringing the glory back to Texas.

Texans over cowgirls.. All.day.long.

Only fags live in Dallas

Cowboys are the better team. Houston is still an expanstion team. Houston was a real team when Warren Moon played or Dan Pastrini or Earl Cambell. The Texans need to get over themselves. Dallas has been America's Team for forever!!!! Houston aint got it! Get over it!!!!

Mark in Austin

Would MUCH rather see the Texans....

Raging Bull in San Marcos

Dallas Cowboys? Ha! How about the ARLINGTON cowboys... The HOUSTON Texans actually play in HOUSTON!!! The cowgirls will never see another superbowl as long as that carpet bagger from Arkansas is still the owner...sorry dallas but you have no team... ARLINGTON does!

supersisko

Hey Big Mac...jealous much? It's ok to admit ur Dallas Cowsmurfs suck this year and are going nowhere, but to belittle another team cause they're having success and ur team isn't shows how much of an ass u really make urself to be. U scared people in Texas will start loving the Texans more than the Cowgirls so the only thing u can do is "playa hate" on them. Man up Big Mac and shut the hell up and watch ur pathetic Cowbitches go down in flames this year. This is coming from a Texans fan...

This is a travesty. The best best team in Texas should be showcased. Bandwagon tonio(san antonio) is where im at, they would have a conniption fit if they wernt able to see their beloved below average football team bore us and the nation for three hours. I guess I'll find a place to watch it, you cant pay me to watch the girls play. Wake up cbs houston is #1,the cowgorls are sloppy and soft . how's that taste d-town(the truth)
