Default The Two Worst Stats to Lead the NFL in

and currently held by your Houston Texans:

1. 17 Players on IR

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/front/5360662.html


2. Most turnovers in the entire league

(searching for link for this one)


Just thought I would spread the joy. We have to re-group and try to finish strong but this year has been harsh. I hope we can get most everyone healthy by next year. I have no clue why we can't protect the ball any better. That needs to be fixed by the end of the year regardless.

I'm pretty sure we led the NFL last year too for players on IR. Can anyone verify that?

Anyway, it's a sad commentary for our team to be leading in both those stats and very disappointing. JMHO!

so... does that mean our teams is full of softies? Or does that mean our team just plays with that much steam that their bodies take such a beating. Or do we pick up the worst players in FA. or . . .

I disagree with this, at least this year. If you are leading the league in Losses than you have the best chance at McFadden.

The financial ramifications along with more holes to fill in the offseason is devastating and will be hard to overcome. It can be done but we need guys to get healthy, a very smart draft, and solid FA pick-ups.

The turnover thing needs to be corrected immediately, the coaches need to be all over this and we need to see improvement the remainder of the season.

I agree. We have come close to leading the league in players put on IR almost every year.

I'll put an "amen" to your "yea."

All teams will have injuries.

All teams will have bad years for injuries.

But when a team consistently loses players to injury, can't get them back on the field, and ends up IR'ing them, it might be time to revisit what you are doing in the offseason.

No, it means we're a bad team. Chicken and Egg. Bad team-->injuries-->Bad team-->injuries

And at the end of the season, we have about 3 new needs in addition to our 3 previous needs. Say we fill 3, well, we start off the next year a bad team, and...

I think according to the graph, we have the most turnovers in the NFL. Baltimore is very close....

Damn, we're also 2nd in the league in lost fumbles.

BSPN shows our defense evens out our offensive miscues.

OT, Round Rock stadium is the best stadium I've been in, besides Reliant. The press box is by far the best I've been in.
