Now sitting at 1-4, the Houston Texans are looking at another disastrous season. They are only two games back in the division and there is still 11 games left in the season. Unfortunately, the team they lost to Thursday night just so happens to be the team at the surface of the AFC South. Worse, the disastrous quarterback issue the team is facing is only going to spell disaster for the Texans going forward.
After starting the game 7-for-10 with 50 passing yards, Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett sat out the remaining contest after he got the wind knocked out of him with seven minutes left in the 2nd quarter. Despite having less injury, Texans head coach Bill O’Brien elected to opt for quarterback Brian Hoyer for the remaining of the game.
The flip-flop at the quarterback position is taking a toll on Houston. There is an obvious lack of confidence within a player, this means it is hard for the remaining team to back someone. That kind of dysfunctionality only results in a season continuing on a downward trend.
Hoyer is not the problem. He almost got them a won. It was the defense who couldn’t stop the Colts who were to blame, they are looking terrible.
