The Houston Texans have had an appalling start to the 2015 NFL season.
After coming into the new campaign hoping to reach the playoffs, on the back of signing Vince Wilfork and getting Jadeveon Clowney back fit again, the Texans would have been hoping for much better. Houston currently possess a 1-4 record and are playing like a team that have absolutely no chance of making the playoffs, especially after losing last night to an Andrew Luck-less Indianapolis Colts team.
In fact, the situation in Houston can be perfectly summed up by head coach Bill O'Brien still not knowing who his starting quarterback is.

Who's The Starter?
O'Brien has been indecisive about his starting quarterback all year, so it’s no surprise that he remained indecisive after their loss to the Colts on Thursday Night Football.
O’Brien kept Ryan Mallett on the bench and left Brian Hoyer in the game after Mallett had to leave for just a few plays with a minor injury. After the game, the coach refused to commit to either as his long-term starter.
Still No Committal
“Brian, I thought did a good job tonight, but we’ll talk about it. I haven’t even talked to the staff yet about it. We’ll sit down and review the film. I thought Brian did a good job though," O'Brien said, according to quotes from ESPN.
"He went in there, it wasn’t the easiest of circumstances – other than the last play there where he kind of launched it up there. He probably wants to have that one back, but I thought he did a good job. We’ll review it tomorrow and see where we are at that position,” O’Brien went on to add.
The Texans need some stability and they need it now. They simply cannot go through the entire season not knowing who their starting quarterback is. O'Brien has to make a decision.
