The Texans can choose to go with just two QBs and save all that money (some $6M this year.

They can use that money on a veteran QB or at any other position.
I don't think any team would take MS in a trade. The good ones or wanna be good ones already have better. The building teams don't want an older high priced QB. Who do you think would trade for MS and what would we get in return or have to give?

This thought has been rolling around the recesses of my mind as well. I wouldn't be surprised after another pick-6 today. I wouldn't be surprised by status quo either.

They can still turn this ship around.

The division looks tough but Tennesse has Seattle and KC the next two games and the status of Locker is up in the air all of a sudden.

I think it looks bad now but looking back over it, we are going through the toughest part of the schedule and we hung tough with who many consider the best team in the NFL. If only our QB wasn't throwing a pick 6 every game...

I guess, we'll see how Tenn does against the meat of their schedule and Indy still has to play seattle next week I think. We could be in the lead for the division next Sunday with a win. Figuring our QB doesn't throw his now weekly pick 6 that is.

Seattle vs Tenn w/wo Locker is a beatdown waiting to happen for Tenn

The worst news is that the Colts closed the gab quickly. They are also young in most key spots, which doesn't really look good for the Texans.

They good thing that the Texans having going is that they also have plenty of young playmakers, like Watt and Hopkins. They are a long way from the old man Steelers, which look geriatric at this point.

For some reason it doesn't sound as funny coming from a Ravens fan.

The Ravens at this point last season were looking terrible. They managed to turn it around. I'm not sure what we can do to turn it around short of shaking up the coaching staff. It's not going to happen, but I wonder what McNair is thinking at this point.

So, what is the projection now for our record?

It looks like we may be getting better QB play with Keenum, assuming we actually let him play again and don't play Schaub, but we have massive injuries.

Foster has a hamstring, Tate has four broken ribs, we cut our 3rd running back, Duane Brown has been dealing with some kind of injury all year, Owen Daniels is still out for awhile, Cushing is out for the year, and Manning is out for the majority of the season. We also cut two of our backup OLBs and our starters aren't exactly studs. Oh, and Newton is still terrible.

It's looking like we may end up with only 5 or 6 wins this year.

I think case will be the starter. If he is I think we can make this season interesting. If he does the unthinkable then I think we'll lose every game except the jags and maybe beat the cardinals but I doubt it.

Default Re: This is an 8-8 or worse Texan team

Right now, the team is a steam locomotive heading for derailed tracks on a three-hundred foot high train trestle over a river full of alligators and Piranha. The sudden loss of players over a questionable infraction of rules (from what we are told) shows a short temper coming from an otherwise comatose head coach. There's something underlying that caused such a stir. We may never know the real truth, but I bet the coaching staff is grimacing the loss of Cierre Woods, since he was let go BEFORE the injuries to our pair of starting running backs.


Here's my take:

8 - BYE
9 - vs. Colts - L
10 - @ Cardinals - L
11 - vs. Raiders - W/L
12 - vs. Jaguars - W
13 - vs. Patriots - L
14 - @ Jaguars - L
15 - @ Colts - L
16 - vs. Broncos - L
17 - @ Titans - L

4-12 at best...........
