When should the Texans consider a QB change? Recaps, Rockets, transsexual porn and more: The update for Nov. 28

It was an easy question to ask Bill O’Brien. Should Brock Osweiler  be replaced as the Texans’ starting quarterback?

His answer was simple. “No,” O’Brien said, via ESPN. “We’re going to come in here tomorrow, we’re going to correct mistakes, and move on to Green Bay.”

Fans won’t want to hear that. Eventualy, things need to be shaken up. But it is not all on Osweiler. DeAndre Hopkins has not played well all year. O’Brien’s playcalling has handcuffed the team. But at some point — maybe not yet — a change should be considered.

Osweiler has shown no signs of improving. We are 11 games in, and there is enough of a body of work. He has played maybe two quality games, and even that might be a stretch. Sitting a game or two might not be the worse thing in the world. Green Bay’s defense is terrible, and  if Osweiler struggles against that group, it will be time to consider making a move. There is no guarantee Tom Savage will be any better. But it would be hard for him to be any worse.

Really? Somehow, the Chronicle found positives in the Texans loss.

NFL recap: Some good games yesterday, with a very competitive Sunday night game that went to the Chiefs 30-27. (That link contains all the games). For a fun look at the week, check out our friends at holly.football.

Rockets ramble on: The Rockets are off to a much better start this season than last. They are 11-6 after knocking off Portland last night. James Harden continues to be a scoring/assist machine with 38/10 last night.

Weekend recap: In case you missed it, we weighed in on the Texans loss, Tom Herman’s exit to Austin and Lamont Mann gave his views on Fidel Castro.

Gambling recap: So a 2-3-2 week. Not great. Still a solid 11-6-2 over the past two weeks. Overall, unless we completely tank over the last month, it is going to be a winning season. There are fewer college games now, so it is unlikely we will have more than 2-3 plays per week.

On sorting out news: Here is good piece on what constitutes “fake” vs. “false” news.

Whoops: If you tuned in to CNN in hopes of seeing Anthony Bourdain in Boston last night…well, why are you watching Anthony Bourdain? Instead you got subjected to transsexual porn. Can’t make this stuff up. Or can you? 

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“There’s a way you have to play the quarterback position in the NFL. Maybe I’m a little bit old school, but I think you have to play the game in the pocket with consistency.”

— Ron Jaworski

  1. Here are some positives; Texans are still in first place, the AFC south sucks garbage balls, and there were no lasers this week.
