Worst moments in Texans franchise history

D. Carr AP

As a fan, would you rather experience a lot of pain or follow a vanilla franchise?

Texans fans would gladly sign up for a crushing playoff defeat at this point.

Call it the Icarus principle.  We’ve learned during our PFT Live series on the worst moments for every franchise since the ’87 strike that the closer a team flies to the sun, the more likely it is to get burned.

The Houston Texans remain unable to get off the ground.   Their worst moments in franchise history includes a surprising lack of Kris Brown (in the top four) and can be seen below.

    I love the photo used on this thread….sums up Carrs career with the texans.

    The absolute, without a doubt, hands down, number one worst moment was not letting Andre Johnson continue beating the hell out of that punk Cortland Finnegan

    The only thing I walked away with from that: “Rosencopter”

    How about when they named their team the “Texans”.

    That was a great Superbowl between the Green Bay Wisconsinites and the Pittsburgh Pennsylvanians!

    Considering this franchise has never made the playoffs, what are its best moments?

    Cushing’s over training. If it’s not a bad moment it’s a funny moment.

    I like it when you read.

    Have they had any good moments?

    Even though it’s just one game, I’m guessing blowing a 27-10 lead at home with 4 minutes to play against the Colts in 2008 will rank pretty high. They could’ve taken a knee on every snap and won that game, but instead decided to let Sage Rosenfels wing the ball around.

    Coming from a lifelong Lions fan who has suffered through the Monte Clark era, the Darryl Rogers era, the Wayne Fontes era, and (ultimately) the Matt Millen Disaster, trust me, Texans fans, you want vanilla. Vanilla gives you hope. Vanilla reminds you of that great banana split or hot fudge sundae you once had. Sure, it’s no rocky road, or mint chocolate chip, or Chubby Hubby, but it’s nothing like…the Matt Millen Disaster that could be lying directly in front of you.

    You have been warned.

    The Ravens game from this past season. Ultimate comeback. Then a pick 6.

    …by awarding the expansion franchise to Houston instead of Los Angeles…

    oops! That’s part of the NFL’s biggest mistakes.

    Aw man.

    I remember reading a Texans fanpage liveblog when they played the Jets in 2010, it went from miserable to utter elation, and when we came back with a minute left to go it went back to miserable again. Kinda sucked the fun outta winning right there. Sorry, Houston :(

    For those who skipped Greek Mythololgy it’s known as the “IckyR Us” Principle.

    I laughed. Hopefully we’ll get a team soon enough.
