This team has borderline expansion level talent right now

    Not watching Texans games post Watson injury has proven a wise choice on my part. I recommend others follow suit.

    I think this is partially true, parity in the NFL leads to a situation where the difference between contender and crap is pretty small. When a team loses 2 of their 3 best defensive players and their franchise QB, they are sunk no matter how good they were before that. In fact, I don't think anyone could name a team that had a QB operating at an elite level that could lose that QB and 2 of their 3 best defensive players and still be even halfway decent.

    Seriously.

    Of course the team sucks now, we've lost some of our best players to injury PLUS our starting QB.

    I mean sure, depth, but depth doesn't replace special players like that.

    Not really. Just because Watson was able to run around to save his life doesn't mean his offensive line was any good.

    Our OTs and OGs have been graded at the bottom of their positions all season long.

    This isn't just your average awful OL... it's tremendously bad, historically bad, expansion franchise bad.

    The O line isn't the whole team though and O lines all across the league have been god-awful....likely due in part to the league severely limiting contact drills at practice...something vital to O line play.

    Even if the O line is trash, and it is, that doesn't mean that the team has borderline expansion level talent, it just means they have a garbage O line like half of the league does.

    This is the result of starting threads out of sheer emotion.
