In the immortal words of Hall of Fame head coach Vince Lombardi, “What the hell is going on out here?”

Really Houston Texans … really?

The Texans added to their current losing streak, dropping their ninth straight game of the season Sunday, falling to the Jacksonville Jaguars, 13-6 in yet the most embarrassing and inept loss of the 2013 season.

What can I or anyone else say about this football team except … “With the first pick of the 2014 NFL Draft the Houston Texans select …”

Maybe this loss was blessing in disguise because the Texans have to be, no are the WORST team in the NFL, so why not “hopefully” earn the No. 1 overall draft choice?

The Texans now have the same 2-9 record as the Jaguars, but really, losing to the Jaguars and the Oakland Raiders in back-to-back weeks is just pathetic.

There are many other words I can use to describe the offensive play, but how doesn’t a team score a single touchdown against the Jaguars? If not for the leg of Randy Bullock the Texans would have been held scoreless against the Jaguars.

Yes, I just wrote they lost to the Jaguars (I still can’t believe it) and this season is at an all-time low. The 2013 Texans are making the David Carr-led teams look like Super Bowl champions.

Case Keenum finished 18-of-34 for 169 yards in maybe his worst game to date, but he has to learn somehow, but I have the feeling the Texans organization are learning a lot about him as well.

Dennis Johnson led the team in rushing with 74 yards on 13 carries and the leading receiver was Ryan Griffin with one reception for 37 yards.

No offense to those players, but when that trio are the leaders in offensive categories, well that team won’t be winning games anytime soon.

Andre Johnson was held to two receptions for 36 yards. Yikes, that’s not good either.

The defense held the Jaguars to one TD, but still it wasn’t enough.

Something has to be done and soon.

Check back later this evening and all day Monday for more on this game and what is next for the Texans.
