    I would be curious to see the same stats for the first three games verses the last two games. The improvement would be a bunch I believe.

    Looks like a mediocre to bad team.

    Nothing we didn’t already know.

    Is there a coaching stat for game planning, coach challenges and clock management?

    Stats never tell the whole story, but they always point in a generally accurate direction. For the Texans, mediocre is a way of life.

    Well I had them going 10-6 being on the edge of making playoffs or not. If they win this week they will be 1 game behind my predictions so yea 9-7 falls right into track. But rest assured I was told the rest of the AFC isn't that competitive and that 9-7 will easily get us into the WC game with no tie breakers needed lmao

    Let me double check you........We are 2-3 and if we win we will uh...uh... carry the one and add......3-3 which will translate to 8-8. == But that does not account for the 7 game win streak that is coming up.

    Using total yards is a bit off at this juncture, as 4 teams have already had bye weeks. Yds per/gm shakes some of these up a little.

    Well, we all know that stats can be made to say anything you want depending on how you present them. I posted this now, but in another five or six weeks I'll do it again and see how things have changed, if any. The only real stat that matters is the win column. LOL

    So an 0-3 team goes on to make the playoffs 2-3% of the time, according to history. I'll be curious to see how many people are hyping up the Texans for next season if they finish 9-7 and miss the playoffs. I mean, a 9-4 finish looks good on paper, right?

    They were projected to challenge for the division and perhaps the AFC after going 4-12 last year so you know it's gonna happen if they win 8 or 9

    It's just sad that I have already written off the season. I now watch the Texans the same way I watch the Cougars. I go into each game hoping they'll win and enjoying what I can, but I know they have about exactly the same chance of a championship. So at some level, what's the point?

    I went into this season we would finish around the 10-6- 8-8 mark, either making a wild card or just on the outside. Didnt really have expectations for more this year. I just went into the season wanting to see improvement from our team.
