The Good: David Car is number one overall in the NFL with a QB rating of 113.6. Number seven in passing TDs and has only one pick. This rating doesnt account for the fumbles, but it does mean Carr is making progress this yeara very good thing. He is averaging 10.7 yards per catch; not exactly dinking and dunking down the field even though our offense calls for that. He and Johnson are the best offensive players on the Texans right now. Andre Johnson is number three over all in the NFL with 309 total yards and 14.7 yards average. Very nice! I hope he makes the Pro-Bowl again. We are 13th overall in rushing with 239 yards at 3.8 yards per carry. This is actually good considering that we have been so far behind that weve had to give up on the run late in the game. If we could keep it close I think wed be in the top five. Our tight ends are doing great in the red zone with Mark Bruener and Owen Daniels both having two TDs each. DeMeco Ryans is number one in the league in linebacker tackles! He has an incredible 26 with 20 being solo. The Bad: We are 23rd overall in total offense. We are 25th overall in total rushing. We are 23rd overall in total passing. We are 19th overall in turnovers with a -1 total record. We are 29th overall in punt returns and kick returns. We are 19th overall in scoring offense (total points). The Ugly: We are dead last in defense in total yards giving up 483.7 per game! We are also dead last in giving up 3rd down conversions with 68.4% and committed the most penalty yards with 237. We also have caused the fewest fumbles and have only one interception. We have given up 975 (last place) yards in the air and 489 (30th) yards on the ground. We have given up 12 TDs and 32.7 points per game, which is also dead last. --------------------------------------------- So what does this mean? If our defense was even average I think that we could have gone 8-8 this year or conceivably 9-7. As it is right now, we will be fortunate to win more than three games. Our defense is so terrible that we gave up almost as many yards against the Redskins that the Rice Owls gave up against UT. We gave up 495 yards last game the Owls gave up 500. Pathetic.
