Look, this is all that needs to be said: We CANNOT be the team who always ends up saying to itself after the game "You know, in the past if we had made those types of mistakes and got down by 2 TDs early in the game, we would have folded and never been back in the game at all." I have seen that statement made by one of our players after this win on Sunday. And it really made me depressed. Because it all goes back to what we've all been saying: This team spots other teams (clock AND points) and then makes a run at a comeback. This team spots the league the first four games every year, and then mounts a comeback. And each time, it ends up with us being 7-9 or 8-8. Pretty easy to see what's wrong. So while it was nice to see us get some breathing room; to see us beat the Titans in their own house; and to see us go 1-1 instead of 0-2; it's purely indicative of how we are: Failures at smashing others in the mouth from the opening play, and dominating a team from start-to-finish. Until we are THAT team, we're going to have more ups and downs. We're going to be back to "Fire ____" threads every 2 or 3 weeks around here. At some point, this group of core leaders on the team--Mario, 'Meco, and lots of guys on offense, obviously--better start enforcing some laws on their teammates. If Leach gets flagged for taunting instead of doing his job and walking away, someone needs to let him know about it. If a defender (any of our DBs, actually) doesn't wrap up, and it costs us by allowing the opponent's offense to extend drives and get points, someone needs to rattle that guy's cage a little bit. Guys who know they have a handle on their gameday focus need to be proactive and start holding their teammates accountable. Ray Lewis does it. Peyton Manning does it. The good teams have someone, or multiple someones, who are out there demanding excellence of everyone. Our guys are talented, but that's what's wrong: They are relying on finesse and talent. They think if they go out and perform well, that guys around them will follow suit. Some personality types might enjoy trying to model the excellence they see in others. But there are some personality types who won't thrive unless guys around them are getting on their back and pushing them with verbal and maybe even physical enforcement. It's just not going to work as easily for some as it does for others. We've got to see this team get out there and own a game as soon as the ball is in play for the first play of the game. Play 1 is THE most crucial play of our games. Then, play 2 is the most crucial. Etc. Etc. Which Texans team shows up vs. Jax? The one that thinks they can slack and drag their feet and make a comeback, or the one who wants to live up to the hype?
