    Go get the job done (from a Texans fan)



    I know you guys are underdogs, we had been most of the year and I'd like to share our sentiment with you.

    "What every long-shot, come from behind underdog will tell you is this - the other guy may be the favorite, the odds may be stacked against you. Fair enough. But what the odds don't know is this isn't a math test. This is a completely different kind of test! One where passion has a funny way of trumping logic."

    I wrote before our match-up, the Super Bowl champs would be either the Ravens or Texans. Both play with more passion than any other team.

    My prediction for tomorrow is, Suggs will take over the game.

    The odds-makers may have the Ravens as underdogs, but we are far from long-shots.
    The Ravens may not be able to match the Bradys TD for TD, but if our defense plays up to it's potential, it will be a low scoring Ravens win (23 - 20) affair. As a Ravens fan, I do not take a back seat to the Patriots, even in Foxboro, in any way, shape, or form... Bc

    I like the cut of your jib!

    Thanks for the kind words and good luck to the Texans in the years to come, as long as they aren't playing the Ravens.

    Thanks James. Anyone looking ahead who does not think you guys will be major players has not been paying attention.

    I respect good football, no nonsense football. Baltimore and Houston play the same kind of ball, there are no prima donna's on either team.

    Thanks James, what a classy post! And may I say I like where the Texans are heading in the years to come. Your team definitely got my attention and earned my respect. Cheers

    Thank you for the returned respect.

    Many of my fellow Texans fans refused to root for the Titans when Bud moved the Oilers and changed their name. I rooted for the Titans because I admired Steve McNair. When Bud locked McNair out of Tenn and Baltimore claimed him, I immediately became a Ravens fan. That, in addition to my admiration for Ray Lewis, even when he was opposing McNair and George, firmly cemented my loyalty to the Ravens.

    I'm Houston first, it's where I was born and raised and Baltimore second. And I hate the Steelers for knocking out my Oilers back in the late 70's and 1980.

    we (Ravens fans) can definately relate to having our beloved franchise ripped away from us. the Irsay's run is over...Texans should own the AFC South for the next half dozen years.

    Re: Go get the job done (from a Texans fan)

    Generally this year, I dismissed the "lack of respect" angle that Baltimore fans seem to have embraced and clung to since the 2000 season, but I don't think I've ever seen this much "dissing" of a team for one game. Literally no one is picking us, and it seems like this huge bash fest whenever the game is talked about(as in bashing the Ravens or Flacco), while virtually ignoring the Patriots (major) flaws.

    Honestly, if we do win this game, it might be the most satisfying win in the franchise's existence.

    Thanks for the well wishes. I find it amusing that even in defeat the texans fans have so much more to offer this site than the pats trolls. I hope our boys get the job done as well for the texans will be a force to be reckoned with from now on.

    Re: Go get the job done (from a Texans fan)

    Trust me, you guys have a lot of Texans fans rooting for you today. For some, they just hate Tom Brady. I think that's a lame excuse to root for the Ravens because it's more of a sign of jealousy and I'm not jealous of Brady. For me, I'm rooting for the Ravens because I have real geniune respect for the Ravens and their fans. And unlike a lot of hardcore fans, I have a list of favorite teams - Houston, Baltimore and GB (not because of their Super Bowl wins but when I was a child one of the first books I read from cover to cover was one of my grandfathers books called Instant Replay).

    Both Baltimore and Houston do their talking on the field, I never hear of anything stupid coming from the Ravens players. And the national media, IMO made a big deal out of nothing when Reed said Flacco seemed rattled and needed to step up. Wade threw everything but the kitchen sink at Flacco, showing him looks he hadn't shown all year and Flacco handled it pretty well, I thought.

    I look for Suggs as well as Reed to play lights out today. I'd guard against over-looking benjarvus green-ellis though. Bellicheck likes to try and flip the script.

    again, good luck, enjoy the victory and I'll be looking for the Ravens playing two more games this season, this one and the SB!
