Debunking the Biggest Myths About the Houston Texans in 2012

In the short history of the Houston Texans franchise, several myths have wrongfully been believed about the team. 

In recent years, two myths stand out as being completely and woefully incorrect. The first is that in the many years before the Texans finally became division champions, the team was incessantly being picked as a sleeper within the division and in the AFC. 

The Texans, however, were never able to wade out of the waters of mediocrity, and never were able to unseat the alpha dog Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts.

Another is that after Arian Foster's breakout season in 2010, many believed that the loss of Vonta Leach would cause Foster to just be a flash in the pan. The believers of this myth insinuated the fact that Leach was the primary reason for Foster's success, and that without him, Foster would never return to his elite level of play. 

Foster, though, had another spectacular season and was elected to the Pro Bowl yet again. 

Now, after the Texans have had a taste of glory, the media and fans around the league have started to place myths upon the newly improved Houston franchise.
