Re: Where do Texans Rank in the AFC ???
Something not talked about in here, but what might be the Achilles heel of the team is the elephant in the room - the special teams.
Can Bullock be the man? Will Shane's leg be last year's version? Or back to his golden years? Returns were very subpar, and coverage was lousy. All in all, the Texans weren't just a little subpar, they were awful, and that's a long way to come back from in one season with the same coach.
Bullock strikes me as boom or bust. I'm not doubting his leg, but K is also a very mental position. When it's 23-23 and no time left on the clock, will he step up mentally, or wilt under the pressure? He is a complete unknown and it bothers me that some kind of competitor wasn't brought in to camp to help push him and give him some comp, especially given the lofty expectations this year.
