This has been one week that must have lasted forever for the 2-3 Houston Texans. The team answered questions all week long about this, that and whatever involving their struggling football team, as they’ve lost three consecutive games.

With the St. Louis Rams visiting them these Sunday at 1 p.m. EST that will be televised on CBS, the Texans need to show improvement on their field, especially on offense, but in overall excitement and crispness.

The team needs to get more excited. Lately the 2013 Texans are being compared to other teams that have suffered slow starts to a season, only to come back and reach the Super Bowl (the 2012 Baltimore Ravens).

I don’t see that type of energy in this team as I saw on the Ravens last season, but well just have to wait and see on that one.

As we begin our football filled weekend, here are some links to help get us all through Friday.
