Texans' Wade Phillips: This season is 'obviously a nightmare'

The Houston Texans came into the season with high expectations but things haven’t gone the way they had envisioned. Interim head coach Wade Phillips called the Texans disappointing season a “nightmare.”

“Well, it’s obviously a nightmare,” Phillips said on a conference call with Indianapolis reporters, via Pro Football Talk. “It’s been so many games and so close, and just not being able to make the one or two plays. It’s not like we’re getting beat by 20 points every game, so it’s been very frustrating.”

Quarterback Case Keenum says the team is trying to use this “nightmare” as motivation. Keenum says they have a nothing to lose attitude and that makes them dangerous.

“We’ve got nothing to lose and I think that’s pretty scary for other teams,” Keenum said Wednesday, via the Houston Chronicle. “Because we’re really talented and have nothing to lose, and I think a lot of guys are pissed off. So, that’s kind of a scary combination.”

“I probably shouldn’t say (pissed). My mom’s probably going to be mad because I used that word.”
