    I hate to say so, but I have watched their final three finishes......It sure looks like they are. They should have won all three of their final games, but they lost all three....Its pathetic really.

    Even if we had a NBA type lottery you would have the #3, #4 or whatever teams blowing games to get into the lottery.

    This is truly sad if teams honestly compete to lose, what's next teams competing to get T.O just for national attention!~ I have almost completly bought into the theory that the Texans have written this season off. I love baseball in the spect that so many teams that were completly out of it played to spoil! As a fan of the sport I would like to see every team compete as professionals until those cleats are hanging in the locker room for the season.

    MNF did the 60 seconds with Jimmy Kinnel last night. It showed the Texans dumping water on Kris Brown has Kris Brown yelled "We want Reggie" or something to that effect. It was hilarious, and quite possibly true.


    Kris Browns kick was awful(first time I saw it was yesterday)

    Even if the Texans don't want Reggie. (which they would be crazy not to) I can guarantee that they will let teams know that they will draft him, just for bargaining posture.

    I wouldn't be surprised if there is a trade for the #1.

    It's not sad when teams play to lose. It's smart.

    Winning garbage games that mean zilch is a dumb move. You want your draft slot worth as much as possible. You want the best place possible...when you suck atleast.

    You don't start 2-9 and try to win your last 5 games. It's stupid. Plain and simple.




    I know, you guys believe all that mumbo jumbo sportsmanship, play to have fun, play your hardest every snap of every game, but the goal remains the same.

    Whether you're 2-13 going into your last game...whether you're 16-0 heading to the playoffs....your goal is to WIN THE SUPERBOWL.

    Difference is....when you aren't gonna make playoffs - making the superbowl is the goal for NEXT season. So do you want a crappy draft slot and a "project" type player that'll be ready in 3 years....or do you want someone that can contribute during your fresh start?


    Winning these games is pointless.

    reading your post was pointless.

    winning a game, a home game in particular, is a big deal.
