If Sunday night wasn’t rock bottom, I don’t know what is.

Check that. I honestly don’t know if the Texans HAVE hit rock bottom. The definition of insanity is continuing to do the same thing expecting different results. And as you heard on SportsRadio 610 today, head coach Gary Kubiak said he’s sticking with Matt Schaub as starting quarterback (At least for now).

All I can ask…is why? Outside of the following…

- The second quarter against the Seahawks
– The fourth quarter and overtime against the Titans
– The second half in San Diego

…Schaub has given the Texans nothing. He’s played MAYBE 4.5 good quarters out of a possible 20 in 2013. Then you remember he was below average for the last SEVEN games of 2012. And then you curl up in the fetal position and cry.

It would be one thing if this was Arizona, where a ham sandwich like Carson Palmer is an acceptable starter. The Cardinals aren’t a playoff team, and vicariously have ZERO expectations. Seven wins would be a surprising success.

But this ain’t ‘Zona. The Texans are LOADED with talent, and are somehow 2-3. They have the 4th ranked defense. And the 6th ranked rushing offense. We all know what’s holding this team back.

Schaub ranks second in the NFL with 9 interceptions (coincidentally, tied with Palmer), including 4 pick 6’s in the last 4 weeks (incredibly, an NFL record). Those giveaways have directly led to 52 points and cost the Texans AT LEAST one win.

Backups T.J. Yates and Case Keenum aren’t necessarily upgrades. In fact, they might be worse. But Schaub appears to be in an irreversible slump. Like a pitcher who’s his fastball. It’s time to throw in the towel on number 8 before the season is Drago’d.

Wow, this nutshell is getting Coco de Mer sized. Let’s get this started.


Literally nothing.

“Stop Being Lazy, You Caterpillar Browed Buffoon”

Arian Foster ran well again, and J.J. Watt is still a disruptive monster. But outside of that? Not much. Come on…you know you want the negative.



“Seriously Bro?”

Let’s do a list.

1.) Colin Kaepernick did nothing…until he tossed that 64 yard score to Vernon Davis.
2.) The 49ers ran the ball down the Texans throats for 177 yards and 2 TDs.
3.) The kick return units never blocked for Martin
4.) Yet Martin kept on returning kicks from 9 yards deep
5.) Randy Bullock missed another field goal.
6.) DeAndre Hopkins had 4 targets
7.) Shane Lechler only punted 3 times.
8.) Ben Tate fumbled
9.) Schaub was a train wreck, setting a BAD NFL record in the process
10.) And then confusing the pronoun “I” with “We”.

I’m done.
