Texans '11

Holy shit, what a half!  I get that the Colts don't have Peyton, but was he on their D line, too?

Ridiculous, and now a punt return for a TD. There will be some day later this year when we'll need to remember this half.
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

Don't get too excited.  The Colts are the worst team in the league if they don't have Manning.

Even in victory, Schaub looks shaky.

It's also apparent that they still can't cover anybody.

The Texans have all kinds of problems but 1-0 against a division foe is a hell of a lot better than 0-1.

I am very surprised by several of the games this weekend. I certainly did not have Buffalo whipping the shit out of KC. Wow. Chicago blowing out Atlanta? I didn't see that either. I expected Baltimore to win at home but Pittsburgh looks as bad as I've seen them in forever. One thing that does not surprise me is Detroit's beating up on Ty's Bucs. I've been telling anyone who would listen (surprisingly few in number) that Detroit is going to be good. Not win the division good, but at the very least go on the road and beat bad teams good.

Great first half, sloppy, sloppy second half. Kubiak still can't stay off his dick. Lot's of improvement needed if they don't want to end with 6 wins again. But a win's a win. Victory cigar time.

So I debase myself by rooting for the Cowboys and they proceed to lose in a spectacularly idiotic fashion. That's sort of like drunkenly and significantly lowering your standards and then getting the clap out of the deal.

Seemed like the way the Texans lose, doesn't it?

Same shit, different year (Romo wise).

I was rooting against the Jets.  And was incredibly disappointed.

Yes.  Similar to Shaub and Kubiak.  If you are optimistic, or apparently foolish, you can convince yourself that they have turned the corner, only to realize that those things don't change.

I'm sure there are many examples of players and coaches overcoming their boneheadedness, but it seems like most orgs are optimistic and rarely cut bait too early and instead wait too long.

Apropos to a Tony Romo team.

Both Schaub and Kubiak are what they are.  Schaub is capable.  Kubiak is a football moron.  They have enough talent to overcome the latter, but he's not turning the corner on anything.  He is what he is...someone who can coach 12-win talent to 10 wins.

I think you are just a bit off, there.  Kubiak is not a football moron, he is quite capable as an OC...he is a gameday moron (as a HC).  And, I will take the over on 10 wins - Baltimore and NO may be the only games you guys will not be favored in for the remainder of the year - but I understand your line of thinking.

Favored or not, I see the Texans winning 10 games.  I think they'll struggle with NO, PIT, BAL, ATL, plus they'll split with IND and JAX.  My prediction, not my hope.  Of course, they should have easily won 10, if not 11 or 12, games last year.
