When the Houston Texans were sitting at 11-1 and looking ready to smash every expectation set for them before the season, I pictured that this season review would end up a lot differently than it will now. With the way the last six weeks of the 2012 campaign went, it was like a tale of two teams. But in being the same roster and the same team, Houston fizzled the last quarter of the season.
As the Ravens showed, every team has that lull sometime during the season. The key is to get over the slump before the postseason starts and Houston was unable to get out of their funk in a season that now stands as them spinning their wheels. Let’s take a look at their final grades now.
As a whole, it’s pretty difficult to not like what the Texans were able to do with the ball in 2012. An offense that finishes seventh in the league in yards and eighth in total points appears to be the thing a championship offense entails. And this is with key players having an otherwise down season.

A lot of people will point to the Texans as a classic case of peaking too early. After an 11-1 start, they finished 1-3 and dropped all the way down the 3rd seed. After a less than impressive win over the Bengals in the post-season, they lost convincingly in New England to the Patriots. However, their problems started well before the final 4 weeks of the regular season and the post...
Hindsight is 20-20 and for the Houston Texans the 2012 cap situation put the team in some bad spots, and forced their hand to make some moves. We understand in a perfect world you want to keep everyone, but this is the NFL and there has to be moves made for the greater good of the organization.
We list the top five moves that if the Texans could re-do they would at least take a look...
According to Pro Football Weekly the Texans are expected to make retaining FS Glover Quin a priority this offseason.
Houston is entering the free agency period with at least five starters set to become unrestricted free agents. He is considered by many as smart, with good leadership skills and the ability to defend both the run and pass.
Quin, 27, has become a full time starter...
