"Dave (Richmond, VA): Mort, what's your take on the Texans' win? Are they going to be a lot better than we thought or were the Dolphins just that bad?
Chris Mortensen: Dave Wannstedt (Dolphins) told me a couple of weeks ago that in studying film of the Texans, he thought they were "a lot better" than last year. This wasn't coach-speak because it was nothing for attribution. But I'm still very surprised at the result. The Texans' O-line was terrific in protection and their defense was always going to be very good. The Dolphins have been somewhat overrated going into this year because of some of their "headline" acquisitions like Seau & Griese. "
