Most people would argue that the Houston Texans are a better football team than the Jacksonville Jaguars. Those who subscribe to the “numbers don’t lie” theory would tell you that the Texans and Jags are both 2-9, and Jacksonville beat Houston on Sunday. Does that mean the team that was once widely considered the NFL’s worst is now better than a team that made the playoffs a year ago?
After his team’s embarrassing 13-6 loss at home, star wide receiver Andre Johnson had very little to say to reporters. He didn’t need to say much.
“We suck,” Johnson said, via ESPN.com. “As an offense. That’s pretty much it.”
Case Keenum threw for just 169 yards and an interception against the Jaguars. Johnson caught two passes for 36 yards. The Texans have lost nine straight games since starting the season with back-to-back wins. Johnson was asked specifically if he believes Houston is the worst team in the NFL.
“I think our record shows it,” he said. “Yeah, if you look at our record, yeah, we’re the worst team.
“You’re not going to play perfect every single game, but I mean, it’s been bad, you know. (The fans) were booing us last week. They booed us before. I said it before, if we’re not putting good stuff on the field, we ain’t giving them nothing to cheer about. They booed. They should boo.”
Running back Ben Tate called out a fan who heckled him on Twitter last week and ripped Texans fans for booing. Johnson is right. The Texans deserve it. There are three teams in the NFL with only two wins. One of those teams picked up their second win against Houston on Sunday. As they say, if the shoe fits…
