This is what I predicted 2 years ago. It's not rocket science, it's simple math. The Texans are on course to repeat the same pattern of behavior and operations in 2014 and as a result if carried out 2014 will be worse than 2013.
So if by some miracle we finish 9-7 qualifying for a play-off spot, would that mean you were wrong? Or does it take a 10-6 season to prove you're wrong?
If Schaub had thrown 25 TDs & 2 INTs to now, we could very well be 6-1 right now, with the same salary cap issues.
If the defense played disciplined defense, we could be 3-4, maybe 4-4 same salary cap issue.
The Texans have got problems, but so far it does not look like a salary cap issue, it looks more like a coaching issue.
