Eric Winston talks whether the Texans are cursed

Texans tackle Eric Winston, who we think should be headed to his first Pro Bowl this year, was a guest on PFT Live Friday.

(Yes, we’d think he should be headed to the Pro Bowl even if he wasn’t on PFT Live.)

While Winston is enjoying his bye week on top of the AFC South, the injury to quarterback Matt Schaub has raised questions about Houston’s long-term viability.  Florio asked Winston if he thought the Texans were cursed.

Winston laughed, but understood the point.

“At any point it seems like we’re about to get over the hump, something happens and we don’t,” Winston said. “But I still feel like it’s our year. We’re 7-3 right and we’re playing extremely well. And for the first time since I’ve been here, we’re playing extremely balanced.”

You can check out Winston’s entire interview at the PFT Live homepage or download the show on iTunes.

    Is it a curse to have an owner incapable of firing an inept coach?

    Injuries hit every team, some more than others – it’s part of the game.

    Didn’t stop the Pack.

    It’s the curse of Wade Phillips in regards to quaterbacks. Ever since he pulled Doug Flutie at the beginning of the playoffs in 99 after Doug got them there he carry’s a curse. Look up his history with qb’s since…

    The Texans have a long way to go to beat the Vikings curse. We’re talking Cubs territory here.

    The Pack didn’t lose their number 1 reciever, their quarterback, the number 1 running back, top defensive end and number 1 safety. They have only had 1.5 quarters with their big 3 offensive players the whole year.

    People need to stop talking about the Pack winning with injuries.

    Pack didn’t lose Rodgers… when they did they lost to a Drew Stanton led Detroit Lions…

    Bad example, trbowman…

    (I know Schaub and Rodgers aren’t that close in talent, but the point is, injuries are common, but usually a QB injury makes a team pedestrian.)

    Yes they did, Ryan Grant was their top running back.

    And the Texans didn’t miss a beat without Foster….

    And he’s been back for a while now, and Johnson will be back for the Jags game.

    It’s just a text for the Texans to overcome.

    I’m with knucklebucket…and speaking of curses, has anyone disproved the Madden curse? Flutie for PRO football hall of fame.
