For the second straight year, the Houston Texans
are at the halfway point of the season with too many losses and too
few wins.
But these aren't last year's Texans. Unlike in 2005, these
Texans (2-6) have shown signs that things will get better.
Actually there's myriad reasons.

"But perhaps more important than individual players and
performances is the overall positive sentiment the Texans have this
season.
Carr put it best when he said this after Sunday's 14-10 loss to
New York: "I think we can win every game we play."

This Rieken gal had better not let it get around that she's saying such nice things about the Texas, else her employer might put her on the unemplyment roll.

Still, they have a long way to go.

"We have to just keep on getting better," said rookie
defensive end Mario Williams.

And he is.

Perhaps most exciting for the Texans, while bittersweet for the
naysayers that thought he would be a bust, is his progress. The No.
1 pick has improved steadily each week after a rocky start.

Kubiak said he showed the kind of dominating player he could
become with his performance against the Giants. Williams leads the
Texans with 4 1/2 sacks.

Williams leads the team in sacks, and Demeco is in 2nd. Demeco leads us in tackles and Mario leads the D-Line in tackles as well. Daniels leads the team in TD's. Lundy leads in rushing. This could go a couple different ways but anyway you slice it it looks like we had a solid draft thus far.

That Rieken guy's first name is Kristie. She's the local AP writer who covers the Texans. Any AP copy you see on the Texans is likely from her.

That would explain the omission of the first name.
I dunno, but just because she's a woman doesn't mean she should think that the readers won't think she knows anything about football. I mean dang, I suspect one or maybe two out of every 10 or 20K women know something about the subject.
