Well week one is over and the surprise of it was that the Houston Texans beat the Colts? This is one of the biggest surprises that rocked the NFL, the one single reason for this surprise, is by the name of Mario Williams. This is the single reason that the Texans drafted Williams.
They made the choice to do this over Reggie Bush for the reason that Bush was not seen as a weapon that would be able to stop the Colts and get past their defense. Mario Williams was considered to be the answer and on Sunday this was proven to be correct as the team made their way past the Colts.
There is little time for the team to sit down and relish in their victory, there will need to be a lot of work in the remainder of the season that needs to be done. This work will be the foundation that will keep them atop the division and hopefully allow them the chance to visit the Super Bowl.
The Texans as well as their fans need to remember though that one man can not be a savior of the team alone, there will need to be a long list of improvements that need to be made in order to allow for the team to see the playoffs. While things look good since they beat the Colts, there are a lot of teams that have a bull’s eye on them as a result.
There is a lot of work that will need to be done when it comes to passing the ball down the field. The Texans have not had the best of luck when it involves getting passing yards in the past few seasons. Their needs to be a clear precise plans that are in place when they take to the field for the rest of the season.
It is apparent from their performance when they took to the field on Sunday, that the running game has everything on track in getting the ball down the field. Many of the plays that were run by Williams are that he has been studying the playbook and has it memorized.
The defense of the team will need to be addressed in a little more detail as the season continues to progress along in the season. There were several holes that were apparent in the defense in their last game. These areas of concern need to be addressed as soon as possible in an effort to get the team on track and maintain the momentum that they have built up over the week.
This very well is the best of the years that the Texans have been in existence. If they are able to do everything the correct way, then the team will be well on their way to dominating the division and will be in a position to contest for the Playoffs in the end of the season. Anything is possible, and this will allow the Texans to enjoy the success that the New Orleans Saints enjoyed with their first Super Bowl win.
