Countdown To Kickoff: Texans v. Titans

The last game of the Houston Texans' abysmal 2013 season is nearly upon us. Let us rejoice and be glad in it via Battle Red Blog's "Countdown To Kickoff" open thread.

Whew. It's almost over.

Being a Texans fan this year has felt like far more of a chore than a pleasure, thanks in large part to the team disintegrating from supposed Super Bowl contender into the worst team in the NFL virtually overnight. Yet those of us who have stuck by the team throughout this awful season will wear that fandom as a badge of honor in brighter days. Much as we were able to laugh about 2005 in 2011 and 2012, so too shall we laugh at 2013 one day. For now, we grit our teeth and settle in for the final demeaning chapter of the horror story that is the 2013 Houston Texans.

As you count down to the final Texans game of the 2013 campaign, this is the place for you to chat about the Texans, the Titans, what you hope to see this afternoon, the 2014 NFL Draft, and anything else Texans or Titans-related before the game starts.

The first open thread for the game will post at 11:45 a.m. CST. Until then, this is the place to talk Texans and express despair over what might have been or optimism about what may await in 2014 and beyond.
