The Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens improved this offseason. The Houston Texans didn’t. In fact, they got worse, by turning DeAndre Hopkins into Brandin Cooks and David Johnson and a slight jump in draft capital to Ross Blacklock; by adding only Eric Murray to one of the league’s worst defenses; and by losing starters D.J. Reader and Tashaun Gipson. Because of this reality, 0-2 isn’t unreasonable. Losing to the same teams that clubbed them in blowouts last year was expected. Yet the general ennui, the listlessness, the emptiness, surrounding these losses and the abyss they were played in are what’s different. 0-2 isn’t surprising. The nothingness is.
On this episode of Battle Red Radio, Matt Weston and Joe Critz review Week Two between the Houston Texans and Baltimore Ravens. Topics include the 0-2 start, Houston’s offensive struggles, easy sources of offensive generation, Deshaun Watson’s performance, the difference Anthony Weaver has made, some things to like, and, of course, your beautiful and wonderful listener questions.
