Is it ever wrong to be ungrateful for a win?Because this win feels kind of hollow Authentic Julien Davenport Jersey , all things being equal.But something isn’t sitting right about it.The Texans should’ve scored more than 19 points.A lot more.They got to within the five yard line five (5!) times and came away with a touchdown exactly once.The rest were either field goals or a turnover on downs.The offense was by no means bad last night.If it were, the Texans wouldn’t have even sniffed the red zone, as has happened in the past.But a lot of their red zone (read:within the five yard line in this case) woes can be boiled down to playcalling.Our Brain Genius O’Brien somehow managed to dial up exactly the dumbest possible play at every turn.In a twisted way it’s quite breathtaking, like managing to dodge every single raindrop in a storm except backwards.And that’s not even taking into account the number of times Brain O’Brien tried to kill Deshaun Watson.To be fair, Watson displayed some lemming tendencies as well, but Brain should know better by now than to call some of these plays.He’s even said, as recently as halftime LAST NIGHT that he had to do a better job of playcalling.On a side note:Can we please start a running tally on how many times he has said that up to this point and beyond?Because it’s reached Kubiakish “it’s on me” levels of irritating.That the Texans were not up by at least two scores can be attributed directly to the playcalling and to the fact that after four-plus years Brain O’Brien has not learned a [kittening] thing about how to coach an NFL team.That it required overtime and a return to the ever-present All-Field-Goal-Offense (which I invented as a joke but O’Brien seems to have taken literally) to eke out a win is beyond frustrating; and is a fundamental problem to the future of the Houston Texans.And if he somehow managed to get Deshaun Watson hurt on his designed run plays, may Durga have mercy on his soul because the people of Houston will not.But it’s a win.A win over the Cows.I’ll take it, but I’ll always wonder what would have happened with a better red zone performance.Anyway Youth Bruce Ellington Jersey , let’s get to the game itself.As always, in finest Hair of the Dog tradition, all swear words have been replaced with the word [kitten] to make this safe to read at work.You’re welcome.Pre-Game Thoughts:MDCCapt RonUTMDC (to UT)BFDWestonUTLukeFirst Quarter:UTMDCUTMDC (to UT)Luke (to UT)Texans force Cows to settle for field goal, trail 3-0.LukeMDCDiehard ChrisUTMDC (to UT)Fairbairn shanks field goal, Texans still behind 3-0.UTMDCLukeBFDUTVegaBFDMDCLuke (to BFD)Cows kick another field goal, lead 6-0.UTWestonLukeMDCUTVegaMDCUT (to Vega)Second Quarter:WestonJeremyMDCUTLukeWatson the quick toss to Coutee Pie and the Texans take the lead 7-6.JeremyMDCWestonKenneth L.JeremyMDC (to Kenneth)UT (to Jeremy)LukeTexans force a stop on third down, nullified by a Clowney offsides penalty.UTMDCUTCapt RonUTKenneth L.

I think it’s safe to say we won’t see him back until the regular season for precautionary reasons.Braxton Miller played nearly the entire game Saturday night. He saw time with all three QBs D.J. Reader Jersey , which means he’s somewhere in between the starting slot receiver and a fringe player fighting to make the 53-man roster. Still very blurry.After 2 TDs last week, Jordan Akins wound up receiving the fourth-most snaps among tight ends with just 14, most of which were with the first team.Still no DeAndre Hopkins, Whitney Mercilus, Jadeveon Clowney, J.J. Watt, or Johnathan Joseph. If any of them play in the preseason, it will be on Saturday afternoon versus the Rams. However, I highly doubt any of them play.
