Nothing but wildcard wins at home against the Bengals.

The Texans are currently in a bind due to their QB's lame foot and lack of depth. I think it's telling that the Broncos lost Clady the same week that the Texans lost Brown. The Broncos started a FA LT and didn't seem to miss a beat. The Texans on the other hand score a grand total of 9 pts,

So I dont think Rick/Gary/Wade have proven anyting other than they aren't as good as the elite teams in the draft.

I'm really disappointed in Wade's handpicked choices of Mercilus and Harris. They are avg/roster filler at best. Meanwhile Justin Houston who they took Mercilus over has 7.5 sacks this season and played in the SEC instead of a weak Big10. It probably will take Mercilus a full season to accumulate 7.5 sacks. Several draftniks on this MB had Houston going to the Texans in the 1-2nd rd.

So no, the Texans have done OK drafting, they certianly haven't knocked it out of the park. See the Montgomery/B.Williams picks as examples in the 2013 draft. That Bonner dude they drafted must be a stud, even though I dont remember him from preseason.
