Countdown To Kickoff: Texans v. Jaguars

Now they can never say Eddie Pleasant wasn't featured on BRB. - Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Texans. Jaguars. Thursday Night Football. FEEL THE EXCITEMENT! Or, just, I don't know, cry about how awful the 2013 Houston Texans are and how you're going to watch them try to avoid an eleventh loss in a row tonight.

I believe it was Tennyson, or perhaps Herm Edwards, who once said, "Tis better to have played and lost than never to have played at all." As someone who has watched every painful minute of the Texans' season, I beg to differ. It would have been way better to have gone straight from the predictable postseason loss to the Patriots in January of 2013 to the 2014 regular season opener. There was no reason to play the 2013 season. None.

Nevertheless, we're here, and the Texans insist on playing again tonight. Thus, we must watch. It is our curse.

As you're waiting for what could be ELEVEN FREAKING LOSSES IN A FREAKING ROW, this is the place for you to talk about the Texans, the Jaguars, what you hope to see tonight, the 2014 NFL Draft, and anything else Texans or Jags-related as we wait for those final minutes to tick by before kickoff.

The first open thread for the Houston Texans' Thursday Night Football game will post at 7:15 p.m. CST. Until then, make with the gameday chatter here.
