HOUSTON – After the Texans performed miraculous escape acts the previous two weeks, you could say you saw this coming.

Cinderella turned into a pumpkin today in Baltimore.

This one was on everyone. Gary Kubiak’s overly conservative play calling. Matt Schaub’s inconsistency. A lack of aggressiveness and the instinct to attack on offense.

How much longer will they be throwing 4 yard passes when they need 6 and keep getting completely boneheaded penalties?

I can’t remember the last time the Texans put four solid quarters together and like most of you Texans fans out there, yeah, I’m angry too. How could they not be ready to play when they’re in the home of the Super Bowl champions?

Where’s the fire?

You notice how Indianapolis has very quickly gotten very good? Now the Texans have Seattle next week and the 49ers the week after and if they don’t play smart, hard nosed football, they’re going to be 2-3.

Now, it’s only 3 games in but the trend does not bode well at all. Time to quit talking about getting better.

The fans and the organization deserve better than what we saw today.
