The Texans Train Wreck Begins…

[Disclaimer: I know it’s only one game]
Boy that game was ugly. One got the sense it was over on the first drive, after Coach Kubiak went for it on 4th and inches and fell short.
- Houston still has an expansion football team
- I thought David Carr was no longer with the Texans, so why was he out there wearing the #8 jersey? Oh, that was Matt Schaub? Could have fooled me…
- Coach Kubiak, learn from Mack Brown’s mishandling of the Applewhite-Simms controversy: Play the guy that looks like Opie gives you the best chance to win (in your case backup QB Sage Rosenfels) and not the big money guy
- Mario Williams (below, doing his best Ben Roethlisberger’s cape impersonation) seems to be for real (6 tackles, 2 sacks, 1 forced fumble), demonstrating that the GM who loved him might have been right all along. My apologies Charlie, I always knew you made the right pick.
