The Texans overall record improved, no doubt, but are you really trying to convince us that the Texans played with the heart they did last year? They were far healthier this year than last, and did less with it, especially against some of the worst defenses in the league! I was appalled to see this team obviously "give up" this year in at least 1/4 of our schedule.
Thank goodness we've got free agency & another draft to look forward to.
ok thats your view,here is what i have right now:The Texans had 300 first downs, 63 more than a season ago. Their number of three-and-out series decreased by 27. Houston’s rushing game churned out 117.6 yards per contest, 14 more than in 2003. The Texans threw for 37 more yards per game
For the first time, Houston could boast both a 1,000-yard rusher and receiver. Running back Domanick Davis set club records with 1,188 yards and 13 touchdowns. Ditto wide receiver Andre Johnson, whose 79 catches, 1,142 yards and six touchdown receptions earned a trip to the Pro Bowl – a first for a Texans player on offense.
Houston improved from 31st in the league in total offense to 19th, averaging 52 yards more per outing.
Carr had easily his best season as a pro, setting career marks in yards (3,531), completion percentage (61.2) and passer rating (83.5). And for the first time in three seasons, he threw more touchdowns (16) than interceptions (14). Carr clearly has more command in the huddle, the product of absorbing the offense for 44 starts before his 26th birthday.
I have more if you want it.I think that is progress
