Houston Texans Offseason State of the Union

My fellow Texans fans: The state of the team is strong this offseason.

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Seriously though, Texans fans should be excited about this team's future. They have a new head coach on board who seems to have brought a new attitude, they had (by all accounts) a very good draft and have key players like Arian Foster and Brian Cushing returning from season-ending injuries last year.

I have little doubt that the Texans are headed in the right direction; the question is how quickly will their future become their present?

The talent across most of the roster—at least on paper—is playoff caliber, but one big question mark could hold the team back: What is Ryan Fitzpatrick capable of?

If Fitzpatrick can play a brand of football without the crippling mistakes that Matt Schaub was plagued with last year than the team could go places.

However, as we'll discuss in further detail on the next slide, Fitzpatrick's track record is that of a guy who will cause his coach to pull his hair out with every bad decision he makes with the ball. Hopefully Fitzpatrick can at least keep his head above water this season and not drag down his teammates like an anchor.
