FanHouse in the Stands: Da Bears Superfans, Texans Cheerleaders and More

The Bears didn’t get into the playoffs after their road loss to the Texans, but their fans deserve to be. Bears fans traveled to Reliant Stadium in visiting team numbers not seen since the Steelers came to town in 2005. They were very loud.

Before the game, I got to chat with Da Bears Superfans who made their funny yet wrong predictions about the game:

Before I go getting all sentimental, we have a few plays to check out for this week.

1. The Bears got jobbed on a spot in their game on a third down. It appeared it should have been about a yard and a half or even two yards to gain for a first down. The spot ended up being about a half yard short of the line to gain. I have no problem with the officials, because in fast motion it appeared the receiver wasn’t touched before rolling forward for just over a yard. Plus, due to positioning circumstances, they’d be in a huge hurry to get the exact line. Those are tough. My problem, however, lies in the replay rules. The Bears were not allowed to challenge the spot because the Texans didn’t gain a first down.Continue Reading

Houston Texans Finally Fire Defensive Coordinator Richard Smith (And a Few Others)

Filed under: Texans, AFC South FanHouse readers who pay attention to such things may note that I have never been a big fan of Texans defensive coordinator Richard Smith. (massive understatement)

In a move that was long over due, Smith was fired today, along with defensive backs Coach, Jon Hoke and defensive line coach, Jethro Franklin.

According to Football Outsiders stats, the Texans defense under Smith’s tenure was ranked as follows:

2006: 31st
2007: 30th
2008: 29th

So instead of waiting a few more decades to build a dominant defense, head coach Gary Kubiak finally pulled the plug.Continue Reading

Texans 31, Bears 24: At Least This Game Made Eagles Fans Happy
by @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

Dec 29th 2008 12:40PM by Stephanie Stradley (author feed)
Filed under: Bears, Eagles, TexansReally, there is not much to say about this game. The Cowboys and Bucs lost, but the Bears spit the bit too. The Texans ended up finishing the season 8-8, same as last year. With the Bears’ and Bucs’ losses, the Eagles made the playoffs after their destruction of the Cowboys.

Bears started the game with a lot of energy and got an early 10-0 lead. But FanHouse’s resident Bears fan, Matt Snyder, pegged the problem for the Bears before the game. (And for emphasis, he said it here too).

He had concerns that the Bears wouldn’t be able to handle Texans standout wide receiver, Andre Johnson. Johnson got two touchdowns for the day, and ended the season as the top receiver for receptions and yards (just beaten out for yards per game by Steve Smith).

Texans running back Steve Slaton struggled early with dropping balls and quarterback protection, but ended up finishing the game strong. He ended up getting 1,282 yards for the season to have the most for rookie running backs in a class with some amazing ones.Continue Reading

Strong Winds, Heavy Rains Could Hamper Pats, Bears Playoff Chances

The Patriots need to beat the Bills today if they’re to have any chance to make the playoffs. Originally scheduled for a 1PM EST kickoff, 50-mph wind gusts could push back the start, and when the game eventually gets underway, the conditions will almost certainly wreak havoc on the players, strategy, Bill Belichick’s wig, etc.

NFL Network’s Scott Hanson drew the short straw and is currently on location in Buffalo, and he reports — between the 50-mph wind-aided punches to the face — that the goal posts have been blown sideways. And while the grounds crew can fix the problem (with a little rope and a level), it could be an ongoing issue all afternoon.

Hanson also explains that the team benches have been moved against the stadium walls because they had previously been rolling through the playing field like tumbleweeds. Hanson’s colleague, Adam Schefter says that commissioner Roger Goodell, currently in Baltimore, “is being apprised of this situation. … The league will decide whether or not action will be taken.”Continue Reading

FanHouse in the Stands: This Guy Needs to Turn in His Man Card

Filed under: Giants, Panthers, Texans, NFL FansThis season, FanHouse writers take their cameras to NFL stadiums to document what happens when you stop being polite and start getting real. Or something. We’ve cleverly titled it “FanHouse in the Stands.”

Okay, I’ve seen some weird stuff at NFL games like tailgating snakes and lame gameday attire, but this picture that my friend Andy sent me is truly inexplicable.

Why would someone wear a David Carr PANTHERS jersey to a Houston Texans game against the Titans?

How did such a jersey even exist? Mister Mittens lost his starting job with the Panthers to Vinny Freaking Testaverde, a guy who wasn’t in camp with the team and didn’t know the names of the guys he was playing with when he took over the offense. Matt Moore, a rookie from Oregon State got on the field over Carr.

Did the Panther Mittens guy lose a bet? If he loves the man so much, why not rock a Carr Giants jersey? Does this guy want someone to *accidentally” spill a big plate of nachos on him? Because I can’t think of any jersey you could wear to a Texans game that would cause more abuse being flung your way.

Anyhow, I felt compelled to put together a photoshop essay to share my thoughts on this. Enjoy….Continue Reading

Sorting the Sunday Pile, Week 15: Ed Werder Should Make Up Stuff About T.O. Every Week

I’m not a Cowboys fan. Far from it, in fact. Still, it’s hard not to like Tony Romo. He’s lovably goofy, which would make him something of a mascot if he wasn’t such a good quarterback. But it’s not his gutty performance against the Giants Sunday night in what can legitimately be described as a must-win game that merits a mention here, it’s how he so deftly handles the incandescent media glare in his “aw shucks” Gomer Pyle sorta way. It’s pretty amazing to watch, actually.

During Romo’s postgame press conference following the Cowboys’ 20-8 victory over the Giants, he made the point that unlike other sports, the NFL lends itself to all sorts of drama, most of it manufactured, because games only take place once every seven days or so. He was obviously referring to the Week of Ed Werder, which started with ESPN’s resident Cowboys expert reporting that Terrell Owens was jealous of Romo’s and Jason Witten’s relationship (more on this in a sec).Continue Reading

Every Play Counts: The Green Bay Packers’ Poorly-Coached Defense

Filed under: Packers, Texans

A year after Brett Favre led them to a 13-3 record and the brink of a Super Bowl, the Green Bay Packers are 5-8 and just about eliminated from playoff contention.

But while the knee-jerk reaction would be to blame the decision of the front office to trade Favre and make Aaron Rodgers the starter, folks in Green Bay are mostly supporting Rodgers. The reason? Packers fans are smart enough to see that the real problem is on the other side of the ball, where opposing offenses are pushing the Packers’ defense up and down the field.

That was on display in a big way on Sunday, when the Houston Texans rolled up 549 yards of total offense in a 24-21 win at Lambeau Field. So what’s wrong with the Packers’ defense? We explore in this week’s installment of Every Play Counts.Continue Reading

Packers Increase Pressure on Aaron Rodgers, Still Don’t Have Punter for Sunday

Filed under: Packers, Texans, AFC South, NFC North, NFL Free AgencBy no means do I wish to alarm anyone, but I think this is weird.

As of this writing, Wednesday afternoon, the Green Bay Packers don’t have a punter.

I wouldn’t worry much about this if the team had a bye week. Instead, they have a home game against Houston Sunday.

And they don’t have a punter.

The Packers cut the ineffective Derrick Frost on Monday. You might remember him as the guy who honked four pathetic punts the prior Monday night in New Orleans. It’s an excusable thing for a punter to have a bad day in a driving rain or on a windy day. What isn’t so passable is for a punter to suck it up in a domed stadium.

When the Packers made the move, they began scheduling free agent punters for tryouts. That was Monday. With a couple more scheduled to try out Wednesday, the Packers are getting close to the deadline.Continue Reading
