BFD's allusion to Roberston v. Pastorini in this FanPost got me thinking. Many Houston fans simply stopped following NFL football after Beezlebud announced he was moving the Oilers to Nashville in 1995, choosing to remember the good times with the Oilers rather than supporting any other professional team or players. Other fans continued to watch pro football, but opted to follow other teams or players (Barry Sanders and the Lions, for me) before the Texans arrived.
Regardless of how you handled the City of Houston being without a professional football team, you likely have a fond recollection or 34 of NFL football that pre-dates the Houston Texans. Tell us some of your favorite pre-Texans football memories in the Comments below.
