Do you listen to sports talk radio? You really want those callers to have an influence on the roster and game plans?? Most of them are complete dolts.

No thank you. I'll take my chances with the pros.
I think they screen the calls to get the stupidest fans they can.

So much sense in this post...

...that it will be completely ignored by the majority on TT.

I'm positive the discontent of the fans is well observed by the Texans organization. What they do about it will be the thing.

That is not acceptable.
While Andre is irreplaceable, Foster has not been spectacular as of late and OD is replaceable.

A good QB would win games on his own. Andre's great, but when was the last time he really and truly put this team on his back for a win? The Jags game last year?

Teams lose talent every year. If we can't rebuild, we're not worthy of being a good team.

..... or the prime years of the rest of the team.


The running game better than good enough.

The receiving weapons are # one or two in the league (including TE's & RB's - debatable who's the best between the Texans & Bronco's)


The scheme isn't the problem - they have outgained their opponents 1954-1301.


The issue is turnovers - most specifically at QB where Schaub is responsible for 9 turnovers resulting in 41 points for opposing teams. (Tate has two fumbles resulting in 10? ((or is it 14)) points).. They have a turnover margin of -8 ..... that's no way to win in this league.

That defense is top notch allowing a league low 260.2ypg .... and If you strip away the points given up by turnovers & notsospecial teams , they allow ~16ppg .... which would be good for #6 in the NFL.

Two weak links - Joe Marciano & Matt Statue of a QB Scrub.

I wish I had a nickel for everyone of those "brilliant callers" calling from their desks at jobs that they are, or may not be qualified to do and yet somehow hold no positions within the NFL.
