It seems to be a word that's being thrown around more frequently on these boards, and here might be one little qutoe to support that opinion.
"The Texans demonstrated again on Sunday that they are not yet ready to be competitive against the NFL's powerhouses''
Now, that's something I think couldn't have been said about the Texans in the first two seasons. A few games come to mind, (MIA, NE, CAR, PIT, numerous IND games) that proved that the Texans could hang with any team in the NFL. Now we have more talent, more experience, less injuries, but we seem to be lacking the heart and desire that we showed in that past. If there's one area I think the Texans may have regressed in, I would say attitude.
