What ONE Word Best Describes The Houston Texans After 5 Weeks?

New, comments

For Week 6, Marshall Faulk wants to know:

"After five weeks, you begin to see what your team is made of.  There are many aspects that go into being GMC professional grade: focus, precision, consistency.  In ONE word, can you describe your team right now?  How long will it last?"

"UNDAUNTED"

adjective: undaunted
not intimidated or discouraged by difficulty, danger, or disappointment.
"they were undaunted by the huge amount of work needed"
unafraid, undismayed, unalarmed, unflinching, unshrinking, unabashed, unfaltering, unflagging, fearless, dauntless, intrepid, bold, valiant, brave, stout-hearted, lionhearted, courageous, heroic, gallant, doughty, plucky, game, mettlesome, gritty, steely, indomitable, resolute, determined, confident, audacious, daring, daredevil

The Texans of 2014 under Bill O'Brien have shown strengths, weaknesses, and inconsistencies in their first five games as they struggle with implementing two entirely new systems for offense and defense.  They have a lot of young players who are still getting up to NFL speed as well.  Throughout each competition, the one thing they have shown is that they will not let up as a team.  They compete, they make adjustments, and they truly remain undaunted and resolute until the final second ticks off the clock.

I think this will last throughout this season and beyond, as this coaching staff seems to have really motivated this group of players to never quit, and to keep finding ways to compete throughout each game.

What say you, Texans fans of BRB?  What one word describes this team for you?
