    I'm glad I quit listening to the post game show on the radio last year. I don't think I could have handled this.

    From Voice of the Fan - http://www.houstontexans.com/news/news_detail.php?PRKey=2014

    The radio broadcast team even went so far to give the “Player of the Game” award to Steve McKinney who said we’re on the verge of “something special.” And that would be what, Steve, scoring two touchdowns in a game?

    The first caller to the post-game show – after McKinney walked off with a $500 gift certificate for his effort –

    Because Davis and Norris and Gaffney and Carr did nothing. It was all the center. Why do we have this nauseating love affair with McKinney?

    That ref had more to do with the game than anyone else on the field. He should be given a game ball. BUt he'd probably just fumble it.

    Yeah going 0-16 is something special. Once again, Stanley is our “Player of the Game”.

    I think McKinney is having his best year (seriously), but the entire line was a miserable failure yesterday so I don't see how they could have named a lineman...except for the fact that they are good buddies (610am) and do a radio show together.

    Good point, he did have a good game. I change my Stanley vote to DRob.

    I think that the entire nfl gives McKinney a lot of credit, I mean he has an 87 rating in madden.

    That's probably true, but it's easy to improve from being totally inept.

    So true. Again, Pitts was the best lineman yesterday and that's not saying much at all. The bad call by the ref could never have happened if Wade could pass block.....at all.....ever. Weigert stunk bad also. They are just not very good....period. You can lead a 300 pounder to the line of scrimmage, but you can't force them to block.

    BINGO!!!!!!!

    If McKinney is really having his best year (which I guess, is at least an upgrade from lousy) then I pray he doesn't regress any. We've already given up 20 sacks, albeit a few are on Carr, but that's still way too many. And if Riley keeps getting beat by speed rushers, Carr will never make it to the end of the season.

    They are on pace to give up 106.66 sacks this year.
