The hate around the Houston Texans play on the field is misguided and wrong.

Before we go any further, if there’s dislike towards this team it should only be at Deshaun Watson, who has been accused of sexual misconduct. That is an understandable reason. What’s unfathomable is to think the Houston Texans are the worst team in the league.

FanSided came out with their power rankings and season preview, and guess who was ranked 32nd in the league? Yep, the Houston Texans. Now all lists are subjective works of writing that can vary greatly and respect to those who make them. There are three reasons why the Houston Texans will not be the worst team in the league at the end of the 2021 NFL season.

The Texans offense definitely moved the ball last season, and as we’ve reiterated many times here at Toro Times that Houston had seven losses by seven points or less. Of course, those were with Deshaun Watson leading the helm, but it’s not like the offense has changed that much outside of Will Fuller V signing with the Miami Dolphins.

One of the reasons NFL athletes are what they are is because they can compartmentalize what’s going on in their personal lives and focus solely on performing for roughly three hours every Sunday. On top of that, if there’s anyone who can help the Houston Texans even further in that department is first-year Head Coach David Culley. Culley’s cool, calm, and stern attitude has helped anchor the Texans so far.

Can he lead the team to a respectable record despite the world being against them? It may happen, and those three reasons are discussed in the next few pages.
