The Texans Train Wreck Begins…

[Disclaimer: I know it’s only one game]

Pittsburgh Steelers 38, Houston Texans 17

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.

I’ll leave the in-depth analysis for the local experten but here are some thoughts from an NFL Orphan (Go Oilers!):

  • 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.
