Maybe the best way to describe the 2013 Houston Texans football season is frustrating and defensive end J.J. Watt said in an article by John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, he understands the frustrations of the fans.

McClain quoted Watt, saying:

"“I think I understand that our fans have frustration and disappointment in this season. I’m not going to try and tell you that you shouldn’t have disappointment in the way we’ve played.”"

The fans have every right to be disappointed in the way the Texans have played this season, because it has been one of the worst seasons in the history, maybe even the worst season since 2002.

This season can’t end fast enough for this team, especially this upcoming game with the Denver Broncos coming to town.

McClain also wrote about how Dennis Johnson will make his first career start in place of Ben Tate who was placed on the IR this week with five broken ribs.

The veteran writer wrote:

"“Johnson, an undrafted free agent, has 37 carries for 154 yards. He’ll be backed up by veteran Deji Karim and rookie Jonathan Grimes.”"

Marcus Chavez of House of Houston wrote in an article with the headline: “Why You Don’t Want Matt Schaub to Start,” saying:

"“The news of Matt Schaub starting against Denver may not be a big deal to you. But I want you to know that you should be very concerned about it … It’s safe to assume that he will get cut at the end of the season. But what if Schaub plays like the second coming of Charlie Sheen and single handedly beats Denver?”"

I don’t see Schaub staying on the team no matter how well he plays, but the question asked does sneak up the idea this team could, in fact, start thinking about it if were to happen.

But let’s face it, it is Schaub in 2013 which means there will be an interception of two this game.

Over at Just Blog Baby, the Fansided site of the Oakland Raiders, they posted their third mock draft and have the Texans drafting Teddy Bridgewater without he No. 1 overall pick.

The site wrote:

"“Can you think of any other pick in all honesty? Unless for some reason the Texans fall in love with another quarterback then this is Teddy. Of course they could go with Clowney, but they have a fairly solid pass rush.”"
