I hate to interrupt the latest Texans have turned the corner talk but I figured you would be interested in this, even if you don't particularly like it: Is the Texans defensive improvement real or fools gold? It just seems to me I've seen this before. Like in 2006. You can watch Richard Smith talk about this on video between the 2006 and 2007 season. The Texans had an awful awful start but as he put it, they finished strong. Not really. They finished still below average, and by the Football Outsider play by play stats, they finished that season rated 31st in the league. I am not against conventional wisdom. I just like conventional wisdom when it is support by data. Stats aren't everything, but they are just a way to look at things relative to the rest of the league instead of relative to some really really poor performances.
