The Houston Texans reminded Bud Adams of his mistake…again. I’d go into the stats of the game, but I’m not sure what that proves. I’d rather focus my attention on the Patriots. The Texans have beaten three Division leaders this season. Denver, Baltimore, and Chicago. The team will play its fourth Division leader Monday night. The New England Patriots represent what the Texans want…sustained success. The Patriots don’t resemble who the Texans are…a better team.

The Houston Texans had scored on their first possession in four of their first five games. In those games the Texans lead wire to wire. The only game they were behind in was Denver, when they were down by five at one point. By coincidence that is the only game the Texans hadn’t scored on the opening drive. Elvis Dumerville sacked Matt Schaub for a safety on the games first play. That gave Denver two points and the ball. They would add another three going up by five without the Texans even playing offense. That would change quickly. The Texans would score a touchdown on their next three possessions. Eighty-nine yards in five plays, ninety yards in fourteen plays, and fifty-seven yards in two plays. Putting the team back on schedule, playing with a lead. That all changed Sunday night at Reliant.

The Houston Texans fan base is very unique. If you were born before..I don’t know 1986, you were a fan of another team. Doesn’t matter who it was, it wasn’t the Texans until 2002. Cool thing about that, we create our own traditions. Bad thing, we are learning as we go along. Green Bay Packer fans showed up in large numbers, nothing we could do about it. Why? We haven’t built the tradition. This doesn’t happen in Green Bay, Kansas City, Philadelphia, or Chicago. These teams of generational fan bases. Grandparents, taking sons and daughters,taking their children. I’m not saying we don’t, just not in the numbers. There is a “code of conduct” in these cities. You don’t buy season tickets to sell them. If you need to sell them, make sure they go to fans of the Texans. We also need to buy more season tickets. The unsold season tickets are purchased by a ticket broker. They don’t care who buys them as long as they sell them. If we don’t want large numbers of other teams in our stadium. Those traditions have to be established. I suggest, BUY SEASON TICKETS. What also makes us unique is in-game rituals. I’m only saying this once. Why are we still celebrating first downs? I understand doing it…five years ago. We had nothing else to cheer for, so a first down is all we had. Now I see it as celebrating mediocrity, were better than that.

The Texans make moves over the last two days that prove they belong where they are. Instead of waiting on Darryl Sharpton to come off PUP (Physically Unable to Perform). Then take three weeks to evaluate him. The Texans make a proactive move and sign inside linebacker Barrett Ruud. Cut the underperforming Trindon Holliday and bring offensive guard Cody White up from the practice squad. Aggressive moves made without hesitation. Holliday was the star of the team during per-season running back three touchdown on special teams. I figured Trindon would win us a game or two with his speed… He never got going averaging 19.4 yards on kick returns. FIFTIETH in the league that’s 50! There are thirty two teams in the NFL, back-ups were out performing Trindon.
His punt return skills were a little better,
