10. Final. 38. 51. 22

The Houston Texans were nearly shut-out until garbage time.

As expected the Los Angeles Rams rolled into NRG Stadium with a crowd that was doing its best ghost town impression on Halloween Sunday. The Texans did have some fourth-down stops early on in the game, but once again costly penalties and the Rams being as good as they are just couldn’t be stopped.

Davis Mills had another fine performance, going 29/38 for 310 yards passing with two touchdowns and an interception. Leading the rushing attack in the first game of the post-Mark Ingram era was Rex Burkhead who added four carries for 21 yards and a score himself. Not something that was expected by anybody. Burkhead also attempted a pass but it was incomplete.

Some Texans fans during the game were calling for David Culley to be fired on Twitter. Is this for real? I know the season is bad, but nobody outside of some Hall of Fame coaches could come in and fix the Texans in one season.

David Culley shouldn’t be fired, Nick Caserio must trade Watson in the Texans next big  move

For those asking for Culley to be fired, be reminded that these really aren’t his players. Yes, he did go through a draft with the team, but their first pick was in the third round witb Davis Mills who has had flashes. If there’s anything we’ve learned from Nick Caserio, it’s that he’s not going to do what the fans are asking him to do.

Whether that means trading (or not) Deshaun Watson and Brandin Cooks to actually acquire some draft capital to help this team. Instead, it has to be the hard way with Caserio. Going back to Watson, just trade him at the deadline already.

The longer he sticks around, the worse everything gets. Get your draft capital and then truly start your rebuild.

dark. Next. The Texans finally scored again in Week 8!
