About The Houston Texans
The Houston Texans are a Pro Football team that is pact of the Southern Division of the AFC. The Texans joined the NFL as an expansion team in 2002. The city of Houston’s former franchise, the Houston Oilers moved to Tennessee in 1997 and changed their name to the Tennessee Titans.
After the 1995 Cleveland Browns controversial move to Baltimore, the NFL sought to find another city to put in an expansion team so they could have an even number of 32 clubs playing in the NFL.
The NFL’s first thought was to make another team in Los Angeles, the United State’s second largest media market, and because they are a city that lost two teams; the Los Angeles Rams and Raiders, the city was perfect. However, Houston thought other wise. They aggressively went after the NFL for the expansion team where Los Angeles thought they had it all wrapped up but in the end their lack of interest and Houston’s combative to put together a package that included a new stadium earned them the award of the expansion team that is now called the Houston Texans.
The Texans took the field in 2002 and won their opener against their in-state rivals, the Dallas Cowboys 19 to 10 and in 2003 they beat the Miami Dolphins in their season opener 21 to 20, making the Texans the first expansion team to win two consecutive season openers.
In 2004, the Texans were host to Super Bowl XXXVIII.
Since the establishment of the Houston Texans in 2002, they have made steady progress each year. The first year ended with 4 wins and 12 losses, the second year ended with 5 wins and 11 losses, and in 2004 they ended with 7 wins and 9 losses. Then, in the 2005 season things fell apart for the Texans.
Even though the fans booed their team in the final game of 2004 against the Cleveland Browns for their performance, they still expected the Texans to at least hit the 50% mark for the 2005 season. However, the offense did not perform at all. The Texans fired offensive head coordinator Chris Palmer, and Joe Pendry took his place. This marked the first shake-up of the Texans coaching staff in the franchise’s history.
The Houston Texans finished the 2005 season with a dismal 2 and 14 record; the worst NFL record of the ’05 season. The day after the last game of the season, the Texans fired head coach Dom Capers who was the only coach they had known.
