Default Texans may be the worst football team I've ever watched

So I started watching football about 3 years ago for the first time. Since then, Ive become engrossed and have watched pretty much every game available. In those 3 years, the Texans consistently play worse than the worst games that the worst teams have played.

No matter what anyone says, our OL is asolutely terrible. I don't like Pitts at LT (even though everyone loves him), I hate McKinney at C, Wiegart at RT and Riley at RG, plus Brown as a starter make me feel sick to my stomach. People may say they've improved if you look at the stats. But after watching the game tonight, the real reason is clear: The coaches know they are absolutely horrible as a unit, and so give Carr 1.5s or less to get the ball away. If the OL was better, they'd trust them more. KC should have just dropped everyone back into coverage every play---we wouldn't have known what to do.

Our defense is the absolute worst part of the team. No one past the DL can tackle at all. And if they can tackle even a little, they don't have good ball awareness. They get faked otu by PAs, they get faked out by counters, they get faked out by jukes. Ahhh! ANd the worst part of it is, our offense is so conservative (3 3 yard passes in a row!?!!?) that the defense is playing 30-35 minutes a game!!!

This is so frustrating I want to just go to sleep....

Dunta Robinson. He can tackle. I believe CC Brown can too and there's probably a few others. In fact, this team SHOULD be good at stopping the run. Buchannon is a spineless turd, but I don't really see what the problem is everywhere else.

How did Buchannon manage to get onto his first NFL team and become a starter anyway? That baffles me. I never see him do anything positive at all. Oh, I know he manages to barely bring down a receiver every now and then, but I never see him break up a pass and I sure as **** never see him cold **** anyone.

I think the Pitts praise on this board is a relative thing. We all realize the O-line is terrible. I do think, however, that Pitts has shown enough in the small sample size we've been given that he should compete for the LT spot next preseason. I think that he could be the LT of the future if we had some decent guys around him. That's true for any LT, of course. The cohesiveness of the unit as a whole is going to determine a lot more than any one player.

I've been watching football for a lot longer than that and I am certain that the Texans are the worst team I've ever watched. Maybe not talent-wise, but in terms of actuall performance, they really suck.
