The Jags have all of these elements. Yet, they had the same record versus essentially the same schedule as the injury riddled Texans. Go figure.
Really, who cares what some talking head has to say about the Texans. The only reason to listen to these guys is that they may have some info that you'd like to know. Their opinions are no better than yours. And if you follow the Texans closely, you probably know a heck of a lot more about the team than they do.
The fact is, the Texans, the Jags, the rest of the division, & the rest of the league all start out 0-0. So far, the Texans have been better than the sum of their total parts. Entering year 3, the parts are much improved. If the Texans play to their previous history of overachieving, very good things can happen.
