Texans need to finish deal in 2010
By RICHARD JUSTICE

There it sits all alone, a game unlike the others. Join me in welcoming the Kansas City Chiefs to Reliant Stadium on Oct. 17.

Say hello to your guaranteed victory. This is the one and only game on the 2010 schedule that looks like a dead-solid, no-questions-asked victory for our Texans.

How's that for a cold slap in the kisser? Of course, you'll immediately focus on the other 15 games. Always worrying about what you don't have instead of what you do.

Real fans would take that guaranteed victory and savor it. That's one more than the Lions and Chiefs have, so there. Why look for trouble?

I've got the Texans favored in just six games, which doesn't mean they're going to win only six. It just means they've got a brutal schedule, but so does every other team.

That's especially true after the open week, when the Texans play six of nine on the road in a stretch that includes road games against the Eagles, Jets and Colts and home games against three playoff contenders: Chargers, Titans and Ravens.

If the Texans have their usual slow start, they're in deep trouble if you define deep trouble as, “Oh no, Mr. McNair is going to fire us all.” Gary Kubiak's teams are 3-10 in September and 14-6 in December and January. This would be a good year to reverse that trend.

Plenty of talent
Now for the good news. The Texans are good enough to go 16-0. If you're ranking the NFL's 32 teams today, there are only five — Saints, Colts, Vikings, Cowboys and Patriots — clearly better than the Texans.

The Jets, Ravens, Packers and Chargers might be better, and so might the Bengals, Eagles, Steelers, Falcons and Panthers. But the Texans are a good team, possibly a really good team.

And it's no longer strictly a talent issue. It's about staying healthy and closing out games and doing the things champions do.

Maybe that's why this offseason has been so quiet. The Texans can use help at running back and cornerback and safety, but their real substantive improvement needs to come from within.

They need Mario Williams to play better than he did last season. It's not about sack totals, either. It's about making plays with the game on the line, about keeping opposing offensive coordinators up nights worrying about stopping him on third-and-7. Great defensive ends are born by making those plays.

And the Texans need to play an entire season under defensive coordinator Frank Bush the way they played the last 12 games last season.

They need Matt Schaub to cut down on those killer mistakes. He made one against Arizona and another against Indianapolis. If had one of those throws back, the Texans might have gone to the playoffs.

Of course, if the Texans can become a better running team, opposing defenses won't be able to focus only on stopping the passing game.

The Texans need to make the block or the run that gets a critical yard. Had they made two more 1-yard runs at the right time last season, they might have gone to the playoffs.

The Texans have evolved nicely over the last four years, from a 2-14 mess to 8-8 respectable to, finally, a 9-7 winner. Now they need to make another difficult step. They need to be able to close the deal, to play with one heartbeat, to make The Play that frequently is the difference between winning and losing.

They're oh-so-close to being really good. They lost games by 3, 3, 5, 7, 7 and 8 points last season. Other than a loss to the Jets, every loss was about mistakes and misplays. Only the Jets were obviously better.

Something intangible
One more play at the right time would have put the Texans in the playoffs. A handful of plays would have made them an elite team.

They also won games by 3, 3, 3 and 7 points. That's nine of 16 games decided by 7 points or fewer. The NFL is a high-wire act of 100-hour workweeks often coming down to a single play on Sunday. What a way to live. No wonder coaches burn out.

Maybe this is a natural progress from where the franchise was four years ago. Rick Smith and Gary Kubiak overhauled the roster from top to bottom, and they've added talent across the board.

What they need to add now can't be measured, timed or wunderliched. What they need is what all championship teams have. It's about finishing the deal.

We play Houston in Week 6.

Their annual "turn it around too late to make a playoff push, but will certainly make them a dark horse pick for next season" winning streak doesn't occur until much later in the season.

Here's my prediction for the Texans...somewhere between 7-9 and 9-7. That was my pick for 2009, and it will be my pick for 2011.

I don't really see the issue here.

If the shoe was on the other foot, and we were the team with a shit-ton of talent, playing an impossible schedule, with a game against a really weak team on it, we'd all be saying the same thing.

National perspective is that this team sucks.

Hell, last night on NFLN, they were talking about which game would Sam Bradford's first win come in assuming he's drafted by STL.

Everyone gave one of two answers.

Raiders in Week 2, or not until Chiefs in Week 15.

Until this team proves it on the field, they aren't going to get respect.

Oilers were way cooler than the titans and Texans combined.

The Warren Moon record setting "run and shoot" game against the Chiefs, still hurts.

Wasn't it Curly Culp that went from the Chiefs to the Oilers?

not sure.
I was always a chiefs fan but too young to remember a lot of the good years; was in CA from 96-00 and started following them closely after 00.

I just rember Haywood Jeffires on O; and the House of Pain on D.

Plus....on oil rig on a helmet is pretty f*cking cool in my book.

Every team in the league, outside of the Raiders, that plays the Chiefs next year is thinking the same thing.

And Richard Justice won't care if you email him. He gets a hundred emails like that when he cracks on A&M or Texas Tech in his columns.

Richard Justice is a dumbass. I hear him on the radio from time to time, I've met him, read his column, etc. He's a dumbass. The only writer in Houston that knows anything about the NFL is John McClain (I've met him as well) and I haven't heard him say anything unbalanced about either team.

To whomever commented on the name of the Texans, remember the Chiefs started out as the Dallas Texans and Lamar Hunt did give permission to the league and the team to use that name...they interviewed him on local TV around the time the name of the team was announced.

I wouldn't say he's a dumbass. He's a good baseball writer.

Actually the original Dallas Texans played in the NFL in '51, and later were bought by Carroll Roesnbloom who moved them to Baltomore and renamed them the Colts.

Justice is actually on the radio right now on a station in Houston 1560 KGOW. I listen to it quite a bit. I emailed them and told them some Chiefs fans were mad at him. Justice was just like: well, of all the games, that's the game the Texans will be favored by the most points. That's the game they're most likely to win.
