The Texans finished 2008 with an 8-8 record for the second consecutive year. But coach Gary Kubiak told the Houston Chronicle that being average is no longer an option:

    “We have high expectations. We’re a better team than any time since I’ve been here. We’re not going to be satisfied with another (8-8 record). I want more, a lot more. The players do, too.
    “I’m looking forward to the journey because I like the guys I’m taking it with. We have tremendous character on this team.
    “The biggest progress we made last year was on offense (third in yards, 17th in scoring), but we still need to get better. This season, we have to get our defense caught up with our offense.”

Other stories from around the Web on this fine Friday morning:

  • Bears CB Charles Tillman thinks he will be healthy for training camp while still recovering from shoulder surgery. Well, at least he hopes so.
  • Lions QB Matthew Stafford wants the starting job. That might not happen, but he does have girl-approved hair.
