I think that's a significant point. In the previous seasons, you could point to games where the Texans overachieved. I don't think you can say that about this year’s team. They have the record their talent deserves.
would be that the Texans suffered due to the inconsistent effort of some veterans. Some guys became complacent and underachieved. That can spill over into the younger players. I don't know for sure if the Texans agree with me, but I do know that Capers would talk about "consistency" after nearly every loss. And I don't think he was strictly pointing to the younger players ups & downs due to inexperience. As you suggested, this needs to be addressed by the Texans and soon. Determine whether these players can turnaround their effort and performances, or cut bait and go fishin' again.
