Some choice sections:
- Comparing the Texans to the 2010 New York Jets, who won in Foxborough after being blown out by the Patriots during the regular season, Shaughnessy says: "Those Jets had players and a coach who did not wet their pants at the sight of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. Those Jets had attitude. The 2012-13 Texans? Pure frauds. The worst 11-1 team in the history of the NFL. These Texans have absolutely zero chance of beating New England here next week. And everybody knows that this is true."
It goes on from there, but you get the idea. Getting a rise of his readers is part of Shaughnessy's job. For the latter part of his career, it feels like the main part of his job. The chances of Shaughnessy actually having watched the Texans play outside of that Week 14 loss to the Patriots is slimmer than the Texans' chances of winning Sunday, but that's not the point.
