Hair of the Dog: Texans-Cowboys
(Careful Where You Step; There’s Dog Mines All Through The Two Yard Line) Is it ever wrong to be ungrateful for a win?Because this win feels kind of hollow Youth Bruce Ellington Jersey , all things being equal.It’s great that the Texans beat the Cows 19-16, it’s great that we’re only one game back in the AFC South title fight, it’s just great to get a win period.But something isn’t sitting right about it.The Texans should’ve scored more than 19 points.A lot more.They got to within the five yard line five (5!) times and came away with a touchdown exactly once.The rest were either field goals or a turnover on downs.The offense was by no means bad last night.If it were, the Texans wouldn’t have even sniffed the red zone, as has happened in the past.But a lot of their red zone (read:within the five yard line in this case) woes can be boiled down to playcalling.Our Brain Genius O’Brien somehow managed to dial up exactly the dumbest possible play at every turn.In a twisted way it’s quite breathtaking, like managing to dodge every single raindrop in a storm except backwards.And that’s not even taking into account the number of times Brain O’Brien tried to kill Deshaun Watson.To be fair, Watson displayed some lemming tendencies as well, but Brain should know better by now than to call some of these plays.He’s even said, as recently as halftime LAST NIGHT that he had to do a better job of playcalling.On a side note:Can we please start a running tally on how many times he has said that up to this point and beyond?Because it’s reached Kubiakish “it’s on me” levels of irritating.That the Texans were not up by at least two scores can be attributed directly to the playcalling and to the fact that after four-plus years Brain O’Brien has not learned a [kittening] thing about how to coach an NFL team.That it required overtime and a return to the ever-present All-Field-Goal-Offense (which I invented as a joke but O’Brien seems to have taken literally) to eke out a win is beyond frustrating; and is a fundamental problem to the future of the Houston Texans.And if he somehow managed to get Deshaun Watson hurt on his designed run plays http://www.thetexansfootballauthentic.co...-authentic , may Durga have mercy on his soul because the people of Houston will not.But it’s a win.A win over the Cows.I’ll take it, but I’ll always wonder what would have happened with a better red zone performance.Anyway, let’s get to the game itself.As always, in finest Hair of the Dog tradition, all swear words have been replaced with the word [kitten] to make this safe to read at work.You’re welcome.Pre-Game Thoughts:MDCCapt RonUTMDC (to UT)BFDWestonUTLukeFirst Quarter:UTMDCUTMDC (to UT)Luke (to UT)Texans force Cows to settle for field goal, trail 3-0.LukeMDCDiehard ChrisUTMDC (to UT)Fairbairn shanks field goal, Texans still behind 3-0.UTMDCLukeBFDUTVegaBFDMDCLuke (to BFD)Cows kick another field goal, lead 6-0.UTWestonLukeMDCUTVegaMDCUT (to Vega)Second Quarter:WestonJeremyMDCUTLukeWatson the quick toss to Coutee Pie and the Texans take the lead 7-6.JeremyMDCWestonKenneth L.JeremyMDC (to Kenneth)UT (to Jeremy)LukeTexans force a stop on third down, nullified by a Clowney offsides penalty.UTMDCUTCapt RonUTKenneth L.

With the Texans winning the AFC South, it was a certainty that the Texans would host a playoff game on Wild Card Weekend.The only thing that was still up in the air was who they would play, when, and on what channel.We now have answers on two of those three questions.The Colts and BESFs are still playing, so the opponent is still uncertain Womens Nick Martin Jersey , but it’s looking more and more likely we’re getting a rubber game against the Colts.This seventh AFC South game will take place on Saturday afternoon at 3:35 p.m. CST (1:35 p.m. PST) on ESPN.That the Texans are playing the first game of Wild Card weekend is nothing new, as the Texans seem to always get the first game on the schedule.But now we get to listen to the awkward strains of Joe Tessitore and Jason Witten call the game with special appearances by Booger McFarland and his crane o’ wonders along the sidelines of NRG Stadium.Join us then, gentle Texans fan, for what will be an afternoon you will forget for the rest of your lives!Oh, and there are other games happening too, I suppose you might want to see the rest of the Wild Card schedule too:Saturday(6) Colts at (3) Texans - 3:35 p.m. (ESPN)(5) Seahawks at (4) Cowboys - 7:15 p.m. (FOX)Sunday(5) Chargers at (4) Ravens - 12:05 p.m. (CBS)(6) Eagles at (3) Bears - 3:40 p.m. (NBC)UPDATE:We also know when and who the Texans would play in the Divisional Round if they beat the Colts on Saturday afternoon.

RE: Hair of the Dog: Texans-Cowboys
It was great to learn about these texans cowboys here. I would love it if you and your site offered us some more information on this particular topic. That would really make my day, and it would be awesome for me.

Dog's are the best friends of a man and especially when you care about them. The petsafe fence wire reviews share some fence wires reviews which you can get easily and buy it.
