Only have from Texans homers who really don't understand the game. Anyone with a mild NFL football IQ could understand that Yates was just a guy out there taking snaps, handing the ball off, and making check down throws. There is no one outside of Houston that looks at that season and actually credits Yates for taking the Texans anywhere that season. Only the people from Houston who has a ton of hopes.
