Have you ever had one of those days where nothing went right? At all? Not even a little bit? On Saturday, the entire Houston Texans team experienced this. In what could be seen as a positive note, but probably shouldn’t be, it was a true team effort for achieve the level of terrible that the Texans accomplished. Whether it was the Texans getting a total of 101 yards of offense (16 passing, 85 rushing), giving up 34 points on defense, one tackle for a loss and virtually no pressure on the quarterback, or special teams which allowed a blocked punt in the first quarter leading to a quick 14-0 lead for that team up north, it was a bad day on the field.

That was bad enough, but you could be forgiven for not being too concerned given that it’s “just the preseason.” But the wad of terrible that was the on-field performance was overshadowed by the bad news the Texans received early on.

In the first offensive drive of the game, Texans RB Lamar Miller suffered what is believed to be a torn ACL. There will be an MRI to confirm the worst fears of the Texans; whatever the case, we should not expect to see Lamar Miller on the field any time soon this season, if at all. With Duke Johnson still getting up to speed as a Texan, there are a ton of question marks in the RB corps to be answered.

The RB corps joins the offensive line as critical parts of the offense which have more questions than answers. The offensive line hasn’t even gotten to week one and most of the starters are already experiencing injury issues. Tytus Howard, the Texans first round pick, has a broken finger, Mancz is struggling through an ankle injury, and Matt Kalil, as near as anybody can tell, is pulling a Tony Boselli. Add to that Zach Fulton getting turf toe and Max Scharping looking utterly lost on the line, and this is a really bad combination for keeping Deshaun Watson alive, let along putting together a productive offense.

Among all of this is the news of Andrew Luck’s retirement from the NFL. What does this have to do with the game we just watched, you might ask? Not a thing, but it does hammer home the point that we have a young, exceptionally talented quarterback in Deshaun Watson and the wear and tear of a season can grind on a quarterback, physically and mentally. Assuming that Watson will be with the Texans for a long time is a really dangerous assumption and cobbling together an offensive line with baling wire and bubble gum and backing them both up with a deeply suspect running game is no way to keep our new franchise quarterback alive, intact, and productive for years to come.

I don’t want to talk about this game anymore. It’s y’all’s turn now.
