As it stands right now, the Texans are much farther from making a Super Bowl run in 2013 than some might think. In actuality, they might have taken a step back from 2011 to 2012.

The special teams unit was awful, and the Texans were forced to start with horrid field position on many occasions due to unnecessary penalties. 

Gary Kubiak and Matt Schaub called an extremely conservative offense, causing the Texans to struggle to score touchdowns.

The sacrosanct Wade Phillips defense from last year seemed unable to prevent elite quarterbacks from exerting their will on the Texans, dooming the team in the playoffs.

To add insult to injury, Brian Cushing, the defensive leader, suffered an ACL tear early in the season and was placed on the IR.

The Texans need to make major changes in the offseason in order to become a legitimate Super Bowl contender next season. 

Here are those changes.
