Default We should've known...

"We should've known something was wrong last year..."

Finish the sentence, I'm curious as to see when/what people thought things turned ugly last year.

My thoughts:

"We should've known something was wrong last year when R. Smith started lining up at fullback."

Who's next?

I actually thought they turned ugly in the Cleveland game of 2004. Everything seemed to go downhill after that.

...when we signed victor riley, an overweight behemoth who couldnt catch his breath if it were right in front of him - embarassing signing and embarassing that he actually started at LT for us

We should have known something was wrong last year when Victor Riley became a starting tackle. That still makes me nauseous.

we should've known something was wrong when we implemented the 1 step drop to protect David Carr.

1. I realize we drafted a QB the first 3 years, but we didn't draft one in 2005 (the 4th year). That was the point when I said, "...when we didn't draft a QB for the 4th year in a row."

2. It was meant as a joke. I was making fun of our horrible drafting.

We should have known something was wrong last year when we promoted our OL coach to be our offensive coordinator.

It was becoming pretty obvious in the preseason that we had serious protection issues. People want to blame this guy or that guy but capers is the one that I hold responsable for last seasons debacle.
I think our QB is one tough SOB. He has been beat on for 4 years and he still seems excited to be playing for the Texans. He has not been playing the blame game during any of the last 4 seasons.. I like his character and I think he will do a fine job. I have a great feeling about the upcoming year.

GO TEXANS

We drafted Symons in 05
Henson in 04
Ragone 03
Carr 02

06 would be the first class we didn't get a QB in.

To stay on topic though:

We should've known something was wrong when we couldn't score from the 1yd line in preseason vs. the Raiders.

"We should've known something was wrong last year..."

When Dom Capers walked into the office the day after the Browns game at the end of the 04 season, and wasn't fired. :brickwall

When Capers said on 610 am one Monday, "I think play calling is overrated."
