    I think I was watching MNF and someone said this quote. It was awesome, and it made me realize what is wrong with the Texans. So lets discuss it:

    "Amateurs practice until they get it right. Professionals practice until they can't get it wrong."

    I think that about sums up our team pretty amazing. We have a lot of talent on this team. But its raw, and it needs practice. It needs coaching. And so far it hasn't gotten any of that. Our team is a bunch of amateurs. Thats why it looks like we're a college team playing pros.

    We have brief moments of beauty. We practice and practice, and often get it right. But the other team has gotten to a point where they don't get it wrong. Hence the ugly.

    The quote comes from John Madden in his Oakland coaching days.

    And I keep practising my beer. Must be a pro, cause I can't get it wrong!
