Ravens 29, Texans 14: Post-Game Reaction

Here's your final box score. The Texans are now 3-3, and I imagine the cries of "Same old Texans!" will resonate anew this evening and for the rest of the week.

Not to be a contrarian or anything, but I'm not about to write off the season. If anything, I'm actually optimistic about your 2011 Houston Texans.

The Baltimore Ravens are a good football team. Your Houston Texans are not as good of a football team right now. Your Houston Texans are, however, plenty good enough to win the AFC South this year. If they do that, they make the playoffs for the first time in franchise history. They'd even host a real live playoff game. For all the blather about Super-Bowl-Or-Bust, a division title and a playoff appearance would constitute the first notable achievement(s) this franchise has ever had. Right or wrong, that's legitimate progress.

Go ahead...tell me I'm settling for less than a Texans fan should, or that I'm drunk on Battle Red Kool-Aid. That's your right. Your Houston Texans have a real defense, and they have a dangerous offense, especially when Andre Johnson returns.  The Texans are going to win the AFC South, and they're going to host a playoff game.
