I had fun with a franchise "more cursed" than us.

In case you missed it on Sunday the hard-luck Houston Texans of the NFL did something no team in history has ever done. The Texans, the worst NFL expansion team in history (having never been above .500 in their 7 years of existence) blew a 17 point lead to the Indianapolis Colts in the last five minutes of the game. More heart-breaking for Texas fans, they had dominated the much better Colts for almost the whole game, getting pressure on Manning, stopping their running game and running at will on the Colts. Well, to spare details the final collapse involved a fumble run back for a touchdown, a fumble in their own territory and a final interception.

Texan fans are in a state of shock. Many are comparing it to the legendary Buffalo choke of '93, by the Oilers.

I called a local sports station to comment and got to say the following:

"Guys, I got the biggest cringe moment for you today, the day after. I am a lifelong Pittsburgh Pirates fan and I gotta say, Dude, your franchise is cursed with some major bad luck and karma." :D :lol:

That felt good!!!!!!

I'll wager with you that the Texans will have a winning season before the Pirates. BTW I think Choke n fails is a better QB than Shaub. That was a classic choke.

Gotta agree with you Bullish. I think Rosenfels is a good QB that doesn't get a chance to show is stuff. He played a great 55 minutes on Sunday and a dreadful 5 minutes. Playing time fixes those errors.

Schaub lit up Jax the week before. He would not have blown a 17-point lead with 4 minutes remaining.

Why do I say this? Because it is almost impossible to lose a 17-point lead in less than 5 minutes. And Rosenfels ends his glamorous day by throwing a bone-headed interception when he still has time to move the team down the field to re-take the lead.

Rosenfails last three possessions: Fumble, fumble, pick. It was so ugly that Kordell Stewart was shaking his head and saying, "What the hell??"
