Anyone who really knows me, knows that I am a die-hard Miami Dolphins fan. I root for the Texans if they aren’t playing my team or battling for playoff position, but a fan is a fan. As is evidenced by this season, teams have their ups and their downs. In Miami, we lost our starting quarterback, Chad Henne, for the season and as a result had obtained a record of 0 wins and 7 losses. Talk about dismal.

Many of our “so-called” fans, were even making the statement that we should lose all of our games in order to get the hottest college quarterback that would be coming out of college for the upcoming NFL draft. That was a horrible way of thinking, if you ask me. Well, the team continued to go out on the field, after experiencing some tough, heartbreaking losses and competed. As a result, Miami has won back-to-back games and we want to win every other single game.

The Houston Texans, on the other hand, are having a phenomenal season and are benefiting from playing in a weakened conference with the injury of Indianapolis Colts star Peyton Manning impacting that division. Everyone predicted that the Texans would run away with the division. 

Well, the Texans are sitting at the top of their division with a 7-3 record and didn’t appear to be letting off the gas any time soon. Then all of a sudden, a setback occurred. The starting quarterback, Matt Schaub was injured.

Not to pick on Texans fans (FINGERS AREN’T CROSSED SERIOUSLY...LOL), but as I watched many of the comments that I was able to view on my Facebook news feed, there were many comments in regards to Schaub’s possible season ending injury.

People appeared to panic or express doubt that because of this injury that the season was over. No more cheering, no more believing, no more confidence in the end result. 

My mind was immediately arrested, as I was quickly reminded of how we are destined to win at this game of life, with all signs pointing towards living Super Bowl lives and then all of a sudden a setback occurs and we throw in the towel or allow doubt and unbelief to creep in, not realizing that we are still winners in our lives and that the season isn’t over.

Matt Schaub is just one player, but the team must go on. Remember, the star wide receiver Andre Johnson, has been out with an injury, yet the Texans have won many games without him. 

As the old saying goes, “One monkey, don’t stop no show!”

REMEMBER, WHATEVER HAPPENS IN YOUR LIFE, YOU MUST STILL PLAY THE GAME AND WIN!
