East Texas Poll – Texans Or Cowboys?
This seems to be a question that divides most Texans, one way or another. They're either sold completely on one team, or completely on the other. More often than not, there's no middle ground on this issue, no gray area, it's either black or white. Or, in this case, it's either navy or red.
Today's poll question: Do you prefer the Houston Texans or the Dallas Cowboys?
For me personally, I prefer the Houston Texans. Some years - or most years actually - it's been difficult to stand behind the Texans, considering that they've be less than stellar. However, we're forever optimistic, especially considering what they could be capable of, if players such as JJ Watt, Jadeveon Clowney, and DeShaun Watson could stay healthy.
And that brings up another point. How could you NOT cheer for any team that has JJ Watt on it? After his work helping victims with Hurricane Harvey, and just his demeanor as a person, he's just a likeable guy!
But then there's the other side. The Dallas Cowboy side. This one tends to pick up a lot of "fans" - and yes, I use that term loosely - who are just around as long as the Cowboys are winning, or as long as they LOOK like they might come out on top. However, at the end of the season, "Cowboy Nation" seems to have lost quite a large part of it's population.
Now, don't get me wrong, there are the die-hard Dallas faithful. The true Dallas fans that were fans of the winning Dallas legacy teams, with players such as Roger Staubach, Randy White, Tony Dorsett, Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, and Michael Irvin, among others (yes, even this Houston Texans fan knows the legends of Dallas). These are the true fans that will stand behind the Dallas Cowboys each and every season, no matter how bleak it looks. But, I think there are far less of these fans than the bandwagon ones.
So, where do you stand on this issue? Are you a part of the #BullsOnParade movement? Or do you label yourself as part of the #CowboyNation crowd? Let us know.
