The 2013 Houston Texans are the absolute biggest disappointment in the NFL, as they continued their NFL-best eight-game losing streak, this week falling to the Oakland Raiders, 28-23 in Houston.

They made possibly the strangest decision in all of the NFL this weekend when they benched Case Keenum for Matt Schaub, which led a “jaw-dropping” six points off field goals by Randy Bullock.

Gary Kubiak has a lot of explaining to do after this mess of a loss, because unless Keenum was injured there was no reason for Schaub to be playing in this game.

The offense on their final drive … they have four chances inside the 10-yard line to score a touchdown, and following a fumble and false start it, eventually turned into a fourth-and-7 play.

What happens? You saw it … an incomplete pass by the mighty Schaub, all but sealing the fate of Kubiak and himself once this season is complete. Don’t you think?

Any I wrong for being dumbfounded by why this team is so awful?

I just don’t understand how a team with this type of talent can’t win a game since Sept. I just don’t understand it.

Neither team played to the caliber that I believe an NFL team should play, and for the Texans who are now 2-8 on the season, how much worse can it get?

What are your thoughts on this game this team or this season?

Let us know at the Toro Times, because I’m running out of ideas as to why the Texans have fallen do far off the football map.
