|"Now remind me again, who is this we're playing?"|
Jimmy Connors once said, “I hate to lose more than I love to win.” Vince Lombardi was dead serious when he said, “Winning is not a sometime thing; it’s an all the time thing. You don’t win once in a while, you don’t do things right once in a while, you do them right all of the time. Winning is habit.” My man Aristotle was the in the barber shop one day and broke this down, “We are what we repeatedly do! Excellence then, is not an act but a habit.”
Ole Tom Brady must have been in the shop that day because he understands what winning is all about. He and his boyz put that thang on the Houston Texans 41-28 to advance to the AFC Title Game. That win was Brady’s 17th postseason victory which is an NFL record. This dun knows how to get it done, you feelin’ me!
Now who in their right mind thought that the Texans would show up in Foxboro and come out of there alive besides Roland Martin? They were 13-4 coming into the joint but no objective observer gave these boyz a chance of winning in the playoffs on the road. On some real talk, I wouldn’t have given them a chance against the freaking Jacksonville Jaguars in a road playoff game and the Jags are horrible! When the Texans were rolling earlier this season and boyz from Houston were talking crazy to folks, including Ro, I just shook my head. It’s the Houston Texans bruh!
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! You can’t be a winner in the NFL with a name like the Houston Texans. Who does that? Since the Cowboys was taken you just gave up and named it the Texans? How corny is that? That’s like naming a team the St. Louis Arch's or the New York Statue of Liberty’s. Boyz in New England weren’t gonna take an “L” from a team with a corny name bruh. That’s like getting beat up at school by a kid named Myron or Sebastian and then letting him take your varsity letter and new Jordan’s. That's like allowing a kid named Archibald to steal your bike, change out the handle bars on it and trade them with YOU for some reflectors.
There is a high school here in Indiana called the Frankfort Hot Dogs bruh! They get the doors beat off of them every week. Why? Because there's nothing intimidating about their name! The same goes for a school in Indy called the Speedway Spark Plugs! Boyz can't wait to play them because they sound like a joke! It doesn't change because boyz are in the NFL. Proverbs 22:1 says, A good name is more desirable than riches, to be esteemed is better than silver and gold." Now I know that he was talking about your reputation but what kind of rep do you get by having a corny name? The Texans bruh?
That's like when Lil Flip was trying to call himself the King of the South. The name alone lost that battle before they even they spit one lyric! T.I.P. vs Lil Flip? On GP you can't ride with a boy calling himself Lil Flip! That's like showing up with Pookie and Ray Ray ridin' shotgun and the cat you're about to fight has a dun named Waldo in the car!
The Patriots were so pissed off that Houston even showed up to their jobs woofing that they started pulling boyz off of the bench just to prove a point. Some stud named Shane Vereen ran out on the field with some church shoes and a pair of thick and thins on and scored three touchdowns homie. They penciled this Joe’s name in on the roster before kickoff. The fans didn’t even know who this cat was because he barely plays! They’d seen him at the mall from time to time but they weren’t checking for him like that. He had to ride in with Tom Brady so that he wouldn’t get lost getting to the stadium.
Listen up Texan fans! In order to compete in the NFL playoffs you’ve got to go find a legitimate nickname playa. Don’t show up calling yourself the Texans ever again. That’s like rolling through the hood calling yourself a street gang and your name is the Taylor Street Meany’s or the Anderson Street Anaconda’s. You’ll get your lunch money taken by 78 year old Lil’ Miss Ruthie. The mean old lady that carry’s a gun in her purse that lives on the corner! Getting beat in the playoffs by the Texans would have been worse than letting a kid named Stanley come to your crib and slapping your momma.
In order to become a winner you've got to have the name of one homeboy! The Patriots, Ravens, 49ers and Falcons at least sound like their gonna show up and put in work. Even the sorry Detroit Lions sound tougher than the Texans! They just need to see the wizard! The Houston Texans sound like a Broadway show starring John Wayne and I'm a native Texan. Stop me when I start lyin’!
Holla At Ya Boy!
