The Texans may transition to a game plan involving greater expectations for the offense.
Brian Cushing is kiiiiiiiinda the QB of the defense.
Look, I'm not writing off the season. I'm being realistic. Brian Cushing going out for a significant period of time is a big freakin' deal PRECISELY BECAUSE our depth at the position is not very good.
