Luck’s injury is concerning but Brisett is a more than capable backup IMO if Luck needs extra time to heal. Still all those years of taking hits due to a bad OLine may have finally compromised his ability to stay healthy.

I think the futility of the Texans O-Line is going to hurt Deshaun Watson a hell of a lot more than people think. I saw him last night hold onto the ball too long and his mobility can only do so much.

Haven't won a playoff game since 2005.. Those two division titles? Only time they've made the playoffs since 2012. That last playoff win back in '05 was astounding as well. They gained 120 yards on offense and still managed to win.

Since 1992, the end of the Gibbs (First) era, 27 years ago, they have made the playoffs 5 times and won 2 games.


2 of those times they made the playoffs and one of the wins was in the Gibbs II era.


Take those 4 years out, 23 years, 3 playoff appearances, 1 win.


Take those out and focus just on the Snyder era, from 2000 forward. 15 years, 2 playoff appearances, no wins.

Each time they've won the division there in 2012 and 2015.. It was a massive surprise. 2012 with the emergence of RG3, and they destroyed him to get there. Though the blame on his health has to go at least 50/50 between him and the team.

In '15, Kirk Cousins took them to a 9-7 record, helped to a division title by a weak NFC East that year.


4-12 is where I expect them to land. Competing with Miami for the #1 overall pick in the draft. Which I would HOPE they would trade down and try to get some kind of deal like they gave to St Louis in the RG3 trade.
