2013 Scoreboard: Colts 2, Texans 0; Jaguars 2, Texans 0.

The Colts and Jaguars are getting considerably better in 2014 and the Texans are still maintaining the Status Quo.
We could have easily signed D'Qwell Jackson & depending on the structure of Red Bryant's deal, we probably could have done that too.

The Jags can do it 10 times over, that's not what's going to make them better.

Had we avoided injury to key players, Arian, Cushing, OD, Manning & the other Texans played up to their contracts, most notably Matt Schaub, we'd have been in the divisional round again. Can't say the same for the Jags.

Our problem isn't that we've mortgaged our future, it's that we paid guys like Derek Newton & Brice McCain $1M. While they paid that money to Ty Hilton & Vontae Davis.
