    What, no thread on this guy? A true white rookie forced into the starting job after the first and second team QBs go down and he steps in like a five-year pro and wins two games. He won this last one after engineering a two-minute drill-drive that resulted in a TD throw to Kevin Walter with less than 20 ticks on the clock. At one point he ran 17-yards on a 3rd-and-15 to keep the drive alive. T.J. was 26 of 44 with 2 TD passes.

    I gave up on the NFL more than 20 years ago but i have slowly been drawn in to watching this team.

    I gave Yates respect in the Week 14 thread. :thumbup:

    Texans clinch the division, and their first ever playoff spot. I'm really happy for them and especially for Gary Kubiak, who slowly but surely turned the organization into a winning one.

    It's worth noting how often you see unheralded white QBs come in and do an excellent job.

    this kid is doing great. i don't know how far they can go, but with their solid running game, good defense and sure handed receivers (Walter, Johnson, Daniels, Dreesen, Casey) they sure can have a good run. the beauty of it is they don't have to ride the passing game. look at Bucs in 2002, they didn't even have as much as that.
