Well, we're four seasons into our franchise here in Houston and the team is sitting at 0-2. They've been outscored 49-14 in those two games and are looking at a road trip to 3-0 Cincy this week.
So far, no team in the league has been less competitive than the Texans this year.
Did the Texans build the franchise wrong from the beginning?
I'm inclined to say a resounding yes to that simply because we didn't effectively build up the trenches before we spent draft picks on skill players. There's nothing wrong with drafting guys like Andre Johnson, Dunta Robinson and David Carr but what good can they do without people helping them out in the trenches?
In my opinion, the Texans have done an extremely poor job of stocking the offensive and defensive lines and that is a big reason why this franchise is not improving. Four years later, and we still don't have offensive linemen who can block or DL that can pressure a backfield.
Jabar Gaffney (WR) and Jason Babin (DL-LB) are our most confusing draft picks to date. Gaffney was taken first in the second round four years ago, and Babin went in the 1st round the year before last. Neither player was labeled as that kind of prospect coming out of college, and haven't done anything to change that as pros so far.
I think the entire coaching staff needs to go, and Casserly (although he does seem to know the game) may consider resigning himself to get a new team in place with fresh ideas. Because, so far, it looks like Texans' ship is going nowhere fast.
