Concur. He's usually pretty funny, though I'd caution taking anything he says as "analysis". He's an entertainer, not an analyst. He doesn't have the resources to really investigate most of what he writes - and even if he did, trying to nuance his points take some of the sarcastic tone out that is his trademark.
It is true that the Texans stats last year were abysmal. We all know that combining 2nd year lack-of-depth with NFL-high injured reserve and the toughest schedule in the league don't mix well, but some folks are stat-first people. This is no doubt the same logic Ditka used to dis' us.
