Default An interesting STAT for the Texans progress

It seems like everyone is pretty glum about the "what could have beens". but I found an intersting stat by adding the point totals over the last few seasons. While we have yet to have our Texans play to OUR expectations, they will make a milestone Sunday (unless they loose by 49 points) by completing a season for the first time with a point differential in the black. I call that progress and moving in the right direction.

Point differential
2009 +48 (so far)
2008 -28
2007 -05
2006 -99
2005 -171
2004 -30
2003 -125
2002 -143

If they only used point differential as the determining factor on who makes the playoffs then you might be on to something.

More stats?

Yawn.

I did a quick calculation of how much I've spent on this team as a season ticket holder. Those stats nearly made me cry.

We both know this teams isn't going to the superbowl. Did anyone predict that? Hell know. My point is we are moving in the right direction. Even in our previous 8-8 seasons we suffered some major asskickings. This year we delt more than we recieved for the first time EVER!

This was one of my requirements for backing Kubes for another year.

If we win this week, and have a + net points I think we're over the dreaded hump.

Hey, maybe I can dismiss indicative stats just so I can act like toughguy-sports-realist. "Stats are for losers! Grrrr!"

We get it, guys. You're realists. We know stats don't mean everything, but thanks for contributing.

I'd like to point out that these stats do mean the team is moving in the right direction regarding red zone production and defense, which might matter to an owner who needs to decide whether or not to keep his current head coach.

Let me preempt your response: "Winning or losing is all that McNair needs to look at! Grrrr!" I'll preempt that by saying maybe you should go start another "FIRE _______!!!1!" thread.

Those stats indicate this is the BEST LOOKING 8-8 team in the NFL.
Let's see if they change that on Sunday.

Indicative stats my ass.

What a pretentious, smug, piece of shit response. So, you think you're better than us because you like medocrity and refuse to say anything bad about the home team? That's all good. But I disagree.

We can all agree to disagree. But at least be a man and back up how you feel with facts. Don't be a jerk.

And, for the record, yes, stats are, indeed for losers. All that counts are W's. You have not given us any argument to counter that claim.

Period.

"W"s are just a team stat that tracks who had more points when time ran out.

What a clueless, whiny, piece of shit response.

You're the one saying stats are not important.

According to you counting "W"s is for losers.

Ah, Goat. You are good, my friend.

As a sports fan, you know as well as I do that end results are all that matters. We can be first in every statistic in the book, but if we don't have the W's, it somewhat waters it down a bit.

I don't completely disregard individual stats. Matt Schaub has had such an amazing year that it blows me away. We have a freaking top shelf quarterback. But even then, it would have been nice to get a few more wins to really give him the national attention he truly deserves. That's a case of, 'The stats are great, but a few more wins would have been even better.'

In this particular case, stats are not for losers. They aren't for winners, either. Just 8-8, until further notice.

So if we get beat by 48 we would be at 0, that would go good with our 8-8!

But, we are not going to lose so this is Forward progress! Good Stat

Default Re: An interesting STAT for the Texans progress

It is a nice stat, however, it should only be given credit to Kubiak if he had included it in his 2009 plan as a KPI. If not, it is a nice stat, but a meaningless one in the retention debate of he and his staff IMO.
