That should give the Texans a good chance to go deep into the play-offs if the team play even keel.
However, people didn't readjust for the loss of Cushing amongst a host of ofther injuries along the way.
It doesn't matter. If we get to week 16 at 12-2 with the #1 seed on the line, it seems the Super Bowl is well withing reach, it doesn't make sense to ask fans not to set their sights on New Orleans. Especially when we "know" we have a coach who says that's his goal, one of the best WRs to ever play the game, the best goal line back in recent history, & a guy having one of the best seasons of a defensive lineman ever.
If you weren't thinking Super Bowl, that's on you.
However, that shows me that we've got a pretty good coaching staff in place to deal with all that & have us in that position. Maybe not good enough to seal the deal, but good enough to put us in position.
The weakest 11-1 team in history, if you think about it, says a whole lot about our coaches.
