Let me start here: I'm happy with two wins in a row! Its a fun ride, and something we haven't seen in a while. And you have to be delighted to see the guy who can't put his arms down making it work.
But there's something odd going on here. The previous coach couldn't motivate his team, and they were averaging somewhere around 17 points a game. And the new guy is getting them in the high 30s. They're playing more enthusiastically, but its weird to see a team turn around that quickly.
You can attribute the Titans game to the bump you get from a new attitude. Campbell said all the right things. He removed any references to Philbin. He did the little things that can bring the emotion up. And, yeah, they were playing the Titans. They're an average team, made better by the new QB - who Vernon knocked out of the game.
But then this week was a pleasant surprise too. The Texans aren't world beaters by any stretch, but a first half that huge? I did a little googling, and found that the problems for the Texans are deep. They are very flawed. How flawed?
Written before the Dolphins game. In some ways, a big offensive output wasn't unexpected.
And then there's some dysfunction, especially at the top. Clowney has issues. The QB missed the team flight. The coach and the GM are fighting. Those things together, and how they are handled, don't equal success in the NFL.
So I'll take the win - in the NFL any win is good - but I can't get too hyped up about this. And with New England next up, there's a good chance it all comes crashing back down.
I guess stay tuned until Friday morning.
