Houston Texans: Blueprint for a Lost Season

Now that the Houston Texans have fallen from contenders to pretenders, everyone is out to identify the culprit. The chief suspect has been embattled quarterback Matt Schaub. His record-setting string of four interception returns for touchdowns appears to make him the most obvious candidate. 

Head coach Gary Kubiak has taken his share of the fallout, with many insisting his play calls have become so predictable these easy pickoffs were inevitable. The 15 turnovers committed by the Texans has further accelerated their fall from grace. 

How else can a team that has gained 863 more yards than their opponents be 2-4 in the AFC South standings? A record that could easily be 0-6 without a couple of lucky walk-off wins. 

The season has yet to reach the halfway point, so their fortunes could be resurrected. Looking forward, the elevation of Case Keenum to starting quarterback could be the spark that lifts this squad out of its malaise. 

But the present has its roots in the past. What has transpired to this point has its origins in a series of decisions that occurred before the preseason even began.
