I think we have talent here to make the playoffs, just need a coaching staff to come in and shake things up.
One year it was a hurricane. Often it's the referees. There was a season that was unfair because the Texans had four road games in a row or something. Once the schedule was just "too hard".

Oh, I forgot one! "It's the fans' fault".

I think the Texans have an organization that, except for last year, isn't working. The team and its management isn't good right now. This year's excuses won't change that.

With our current roster the way it is not including all these guys we have lost for the season +KJ the last 2 games then Hell yeah we are the worst.

Not to mention Tate has shown he can not carry a team like Foster can, so if the Browns still want this Wishy Washy Running back come get him.

NOW are we the worst team in the NFL without all the injuries. I'd have to say no. And i kinda feel bad for Case that he has had to start with the team so demolished by injuries. He hasnt had a running game since he became the starter, hell one game he only had a FB as both RBs got hurt.

Take out Manning deep, Cushing in the Middle and that is a big difference to your defense. Then take away Foster and O.D and there goes 2 of your biggest weapons on offense. Defenses feared Foster, they dont fear Tate. And O.D was one of the better TEs at finding the soft spot in the Defense.

On the other hand they do continue to start Newton which blows my mind, this coaching staff regardless of the talent we lost would of cost us 6-7 games alone just by their inability to let the best players play and adjust to what other teams are doing. Either way we are 2-9 so does it really matter.

Have Hope!

I just did the ESPN Playoff Simulator, if we win out and the Colts lose the remainder of their games along with a Titan loss or two, we will host a Wild Card game most likely against the Chiefs!

The Seahawks made it to the playoffs a few years ago with a 7-9 record.

Put your down payment on playoff tickets today!

Last year, the Kansas City Chiefs were in the same position as the Texans- loads of talent, poor QB play, tons injuries, bad luck and poor coaching.

Got a new QB and new HC/GM, rest is history.

Maybe if the owner grows a pair, he can clean house ay QB, HC, GM.....

9 straight losses...last win was in september.

a whopping total of 39 pts scored on offense in all 2nd halves combined this season

a record 5 straight games with a pick 6 thrown

a grand total of 8 total TO's caused by our fraud #1 rated defense

an offensive minded HC who, get this, doesn't have a clue of how to fix our offense!..........

and the cherry on top is that we just managed to lose at home to a team that everyone else unanimously thought was the worst team in the league.


We're hammered dog ****...complete with undigested corn & bologna wraps in it...does that answer your question?

Hogwash! We're not even close to KC talent-wise. KC was stacked across the board (up until both Hali and Houston went down). They only needed a plug and play QB and a good HC.

We, otoh, have needs across the board. QB, oline, ILB, OLB, CB, S, RB, etc.

9 game losing streak + losing to Jaguars = WORST IN NFL

Sad, but true.

I think this team is even worse than the 2005 Texans that went 2-14. At least that was still in the 'expansion' phase (or could be argued 4 seasons in).

The 2013 Texans are coming of their best season ever and a playoff win. We expected playoffs and the only question was how far can they go in the post-season. Missing the playoffs, much less having a 2-9 record, was never even considered back in August.

Due to injuries...yes we're the worst. We just lost to the worst team pre-week 12. Now that we lost to them...we own that title. Facing the other 2-9 team would result in a bad loss at this point so by deducing all this.....it's safe to say we're the worst.

No disrespect to Mrs. TejasTom BUT, it would NOT have mattered one little bit.

We're 2 and infinity and we talkin' 'bout practice? Not a game, not a game - We talkin' 'bout practice?

Lmao, don't know your wife, but shes ok in my book. Needed that laugh. Sometimes it really boils down to something as innocuous as "did they even practice" good stuff.

This team was destined to crumble.

The signs have been there for a couple years, but I think being a fan of the team made me personally see past those faults.

Well at the end if last year I couldn't do it. Before the season started I figured there would be a good chance we'd miss the play offs. Was not excited for this season at all, but it's turned out even worse than I figured but I can't say I'm totally shocked.

This isn't the worst team in the nfl, but we are missing talent at some key spots and the head coach isn't that good.

The texans team could very easily be 0-11 right now.
