We can't say the similarities between the Houston Texans and New Orleans Saints are too striking, because the Texans, the Saints' workout partner Wednesday and Thursday, never even have whiffed a playoff game, much less won one.

Michael DeMocker/The Times-Picayune
Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub led the league in 2009 with 4,770 passing yards, the sixth-highest one-season total in league history.
But don't doubt that Houston sees an outline of itself, and what it aspires to be, when it looks New Orleans in the eye.
Like the Saints were before last season, the Texans essentially have been a .500 team the past two seasons. Like the Saints before last season, the Texans have been a one-sided team -- high-scoring offense with a nearly-unstoppable passing game and ultra-productive quarterback, with a spotty running game and try-to-hold-'em-to-less-than-24-points defense.
Like New Orleans was the two years before last season, Houston has been a trendy preseason playoff pick the previous two seasons, seems to be salivating at its opportunity, and basically can see itself making the jump from non-playoff team to Super Bowl contender.
"The only difference I can say is that we haven't won as many games as they have," receiver Andre Johnson said. "In the past, you would hear people talk bad about the Saints and things like that. And those guys and Coach (Sean) Payton, they got their organization turned around and won the Super Bowl.
