Ask any NFL player what they enjoy about playing primetime, nationally televised football games, and one of the first things they'll all inevitably bring up is the fact that they know all of their peers are watching.
At least Bill O'Brien is finally giving you the fire you've been waiting for, Texans fan..
There's added motivation in showing off your wares to the other 30 idle teams around the league, and I would imagine as an NFL player, when you have two primetime games in a ten-day span, you would like to look back and say to yourself, "Man, we showed the nation what we're all about."
If you're a Houston Texan, you hope you can look back at the final gun last night in Pittsburgh and say "That was Houston Texan football."
Well, for better or worse, after an exasperating opening act last Thursday night against the Colts, and on the heels of a 30-23 loss to the Steelers last night in Pittsburgh in which the Texans gave up 24 points in the final three minutes of the first half (TWENTY FOUR!), we can all look back and say it together:
That was Houston Texan football. Unfortunately.
