Well, it's official

There is now, officially, no way that the Houston Texans can match their record from last year.

Not that I was terribly excited to see another 7-9 season but I was hoping that the Texans would at least be competitive.

Yesterday's game was very competitive. It shouldn't have been. 24-3 at the end of the half. 27-17 with 29 seconds left. How can it get any worse than that? Houston is inventing ways to lose.

Ah well, at least they're creative.

The positives:
-7 sacks by the Houston defense
-2 sacks allowed by the Houston O-line
-293 passing yards, 3 touchdowns and only 1 interception against
-Big game for Andre Johnson

The negatives:
-Rookie 3rd-string quarterback throws for 300+, 3 touchdowns and only 1 interception
-110 yards rushing, 1 TD for Steven Jackson
-Fumbled our only interception
-10 points against in the last 30 seconds
-yet another loss.

Obviously, the season has been over for awhile but it's frustrating to see that they just CAN'T win a game.

Ah well, on to Baltimore.

Well, it's not like the Ravens are doing a thing this year, so maybe...maybe...

St. Louis wasn't doing anything this year either. Neither was Tennessee.

Just garbage. Ah well, I'll pick them again.

ayhgf: about you, Houston: get f#cked!

Correction: "Rookie 3rd-string quarterback (FROM HARVARD)throws for 300+, 3 touchdowns and only 1 interception"

Also, as bad as things are in Lionland, at least we fired the crappy coach! (And topped your win total)

Sean Woods said...

Lions suck, Texans suck, Jets suck.

Jaguars somehow suck as well.

nazip: Pennington has 'na-zip' on his passes.

Liam J. said...

Dylan: Yes, you have topped our win total for the first time in the existence of the Texans.


x-tra quick, forced flat-pass picked

Baron Von Cliff said...

It's always a moment of supreme glory when a long-established franchise exceeds the win total of a team in it's...what...5th year of existence? Warms the heart, it does.

Can people finally stop calling Pennington a promising young quarterback? Now that he stinks...and is 30 years old?

Dylan said...

Long established?

Liam J. said...

I think he's making fun of your Lions, not glorying in his Jaguars, Dyl.

houston professional jocks should heed local zealots' mockery.

oeqheja: The sound Liam makes when he sneezes from too much pepper.

Baron Von Cliff said...

I was in fact mocking the Lions, a franchise last consistently good when the dad from Webster was still their best player.

Dylan said...

So, because the Lions won a bunch of titles in the 50s, they should be better than the Texans?

Baron Von Cliff said...

Well, in fact, they ARE. and yeah, they damn well should be. And maybe they'll stay on top of a certain Mr. Millen gets thrown in to a nearby lake...from an aicraft...with no 'chute. Y'know, or something.
