The 2020 and 2018 Houston Texans are tethered together. The 2020 Houston Texans, like the 2018 Houston Texans, have started the season 0-3. In 2018, the Texans lost to New England, the Blaine Gabbert led fake punt touchdown passing Tennessee Titans, and the Eli Manning-Odell Beckham Jr. combination Giants. They then proceeded to win nine straight games and the AFC South before losing at home to the Colts in the Wild Card round of the NFL Playoffs. The 2020 Houston Texans have their crowbar ready and are trying to claw themselves out of the same crypt.
So let’s have ourselves a bean party, hike around the Canadian Rockies, make a Halloween trip to Vegas, lay on the couch hungover, and do the things we did back then. Because once again, it’s time to party like it’s 2018.
On this episode of Battle Red Radio, Matt Weston and BFD review the Texans’ loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers and their 0-3 start. Topics include Houston’s successful first half offensive attack, Deshaun Watson’s Pro Fartball Focus rating, Tim Kelly’s second half insatiable lust to ESTABLISH THE RUN, things we liked and didn’t like about Anthony Weaver’s defense, what 0-3 means, and of course, your beautiful and wonderful listener questions.
Let’s start the show.
