Finally. Another miserable offseason has come to an end, and your Houston Texans are about to play regular season football again. We made it. Take a moment to appreciate that we have several months of football in store for us. Revel in the excitement, and then get to commenting.
This is your first open thread for the Texans' 2016 regular season opener against the Chicago Bears. Share your observations, thoughts, and musings about all things Houston, Texan, and/or Bear in real time in the Comments below.
NOTE: Please do not post any images, videos, GIFs, or non-text comments in any of BRB's live game threads. They tend to slow the thread down and can take a long time to load. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
NOTE II: Due to the fast-paced nature of these threads, there will be no warnings before bans on game day. If a moderator deems a comment or user to be problematic, he or she will remove that person from the discussion for the good of the collective game day experience. If you're on the wrong side of the law today and want your posting privileges reinstated, please send an e-mail to one of us tomorrow.
