I can understand his reasoning for calling the Texans pretenders at this point a defense that is hemoraging because of all the injuries.
They ran out their 5th and 6th CB's yesterday against the Titans in the second half.
Four of their top 5 LBers are hurt too in Cushing , James , Reed and Dobbins and NT Cody was out for a while.
Thats about as close to a defense hemoraging as you can get ....
The fact that they have continued to post W's despite all those injuries does lead me to believe that Rome's opinion is wrong .... tho if they dont get some of these guy's back by playoff time and the quality of opponent improves .... we might be lookin for excuses again.
The Texans beat Denver when they were relatively healthy .... we're a long way from that now.
