On January 12, 2020, the Houston Texans franchise was nuked into ashes. On that day, the Texans jumped out to a 24-0 second quarter lead in their AFC Divisional Playoff game at the Kansas City Chiefs. Kansas City scored the next 41 unanswered points in the most ferocious and terrifying comeback ever seen in pro football en route to a 51-31 win. The humiliation, shock, and awe felt by the Texans and their fans could not possibly be more pronounced. Afterward, head coach Bill O'Brien added general manager to his portfolio. And he went on an offseason tirade of trades in response to that Arrowhead Ambush. After an 0-4 start he was fired, despite leading the Texans to the playoffs in four of his previous five seasons. Now Houston's quarterback situation is a nuclear waste site. Indeed, things have never been the same since that Arrowhead Ambush.

Quarterback Deshaun Watson began the offseason demanding a trade. Now he has far bigger problems to deal with. Multiple women have accused Watson of sexual misconduct. He faces legal issues that are almost certain to keep him sidelined for this year and perhaps much longer. Chargers castoff Tyrod Taylor is projected to be the Houston starter.

New head coach David Culley is the unfortunate soul that walks into the Texans' putrid sewer. Culley, age 65, has worked his entire life to get an NFL head coaching gig. He arrives from the Baltimore Ravens, where he was assistant head coach, wide receivers coach, and passing game coordinator. In college, Culley was the first black quarterback in the history of Vanderbilt football.

New general manager Nick Caserio takes a job in which there is nowhere to go but up. He arrives from the New England Patriots, where he was director of player personnel from 2008 through 2020. That Patriots connection is worrisome to many, as the Bill Belichick coaching and the administrative tree has not been a bastion of success. The Texans had an uninspiring draft that lacked focus and ambition. Their goal was to avoid picking a bust. In that way, they succeeded, as there is nothing from Houston's draft that sparks high expectations. Houston did not pick until the 67th slot, where they selected quarterback Davis Mills of Stanford. Tight end Brevin Jordan of Miami was the most highly acclaimed pick.

Houston is not a franchise that has lacked regular season success. The Texans made the playoffs six times from 2011 through 2019. However, their postseason record has been hapless, with no advancement past the divisional round. The Texans were founded as a 2002 expansion team following the move of the Houston Oilers to Tennessee.
