    From the link above:

    That's a total crock. Ike had nothing to do with the coaches sticking their heads up their arse on the fake punt in Jacksonville. Or not adjusting to Garrad's QB draws. Or the Rosencopter. Or inexplicably calling another bootleg on the very next possession. No, the Texans should have been 2-2, and still in the hunt. It was poor decisions, both on the field and on the sideline, that sent them to 0-4. Not Hurricane Ike.

    So....you don't think natural disasters affect coaches? They are not human and immune? I agree there were bad decisions made, I'm just sayin....

    Saying what? Did you screw up your job because of Ike? I was back to work on Monday morning, and I wouldn't have gotten any slack had I dropped the ball on the job. Most of the folks in Houston were in the same boat. I'm glad Centerpoint's employees didn't use the hurricane as an excuse to not perform their duties.

    It's one thing for some internet writers and fans to blame the Texans woes on the hurricane. But, I've heard the same crap from some of the players and coaches. Show some ownership for your failures. Because that's what they were. Failures.

    2009 can redeem those mistakes. The first step is to look inside rather than look for excuses.
