    This is an interesting metric. Seems to showcase redzone defense (i.e. holding teams to fieldgoals) as well as special teams play (i.e. good punting and kick coverage).

    Last year before Schaub got hurt, we became the best team in the AFC. To me, I think we have picked up where we left off. I expect the Texans to be undefeated going up against Greenbay at home.

    The Cold, Hard Football Facts guys routinely give me nerdboners with their unique analysis and approach to the game. They've been on the Texans' jock for nearly a year now, and often call them last year's prohibitive SB favorite, pre-Haynesworth.

    They're no Peter King, mind you...........

    Special thanks goes out to the Big 12 on this for the seemingly endless supply of jabroni quarterbacks - thanks Big12!

    The defense looks even better when you take into account one of those touchdowns was on a punt return.

    But we've had a weak schedule.

    Denver will be a big game for us. Coming off a pitiful loss, they're going to come out stong at home. If we can handle their offense and rip apart their D, it's going to look really good for our future.

    Except for RGIII, McCoy, Young, Tannihill, Bradford... there really isn't much out there for the big 12....

    chase daniel, wheedon, harrell, and gabbert are missing off the top of my head.

    The Big12 does seem to suck at producing QBs

    You left off Freeman and Weeden. They're all fresh in their careers except for Young. McCoy's expectations were low around here aside from DD who proclaimed him to be the next Brees.

    LOL! I was thinking the same thing. "But... but... but... it's the Dolphins and Jacksonville!"

    I love you, man. :grin:

    Stopped reading after the analysis failed to include Schaub's lack of being labeled elite by Berman and the gang.
