    <em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em> <p>Kevin Walter's only topped 100 receiving yards once this season, with six catches for 146 yards at Green Bay. If he can approach that total Sunday against Chicago in the Texans' season finale, he'd help him offense reach an impressive benchmark.</p> <p>With 124 receiving yards, Walter would hit 1,000 and give the Texans two 1,000-yard receivers and a 1,000 yard rusher. Andre Johnson and Steve Slaton have already passed the mark. Walter has 23 rushing yards this year, so 101 total yards would get him 1,000 yards on offense.</p> <p>"We moved the ball pretty good this year when you look at the numbers overall," coach Gary Kubiak said. "But to have a back over 1,000 yards and two receivers over 1,000, that means you're balanced. That's what it says. And we have gotten more balanced because Kevin has become a better player and Steve has stepped in and done a good job. That's what you hope for as a football team, that you have a lot of guys that can make plays."</p> <p>That big a day for Walter would likely mean a good day for quarterback Matt Schaub.</p> <p>"It's just a lot of guys doing a lot of good things," Schaub said. "You don't see that type of production very often and hopefully be a part of something like that, you know that's special. But, we've got work to do and we can end our season on a positive note as long as we go out and take care of business this week."</p>

    And yet the best they can do is still...breaking even. That's actually almost heartbreaking.
    Forget the salvation army this season- let's donate everything to anyone that's a part of that franchise.
