Ex-Raven, current-Texan Demps keeps chin up

The Houston Texans come into Sunday's game against the Ravens at Reliant Stadium off a 38-17 loss to Pittsburgh. For a team that has struggled since coming into the NFL as an expansion franchise, such a season-opener could lead to a fatalistic attitude from the outset. That the opening defeat simply portends more of the same-old, same-old. But Ravens safety Will Demps, who now plays for the Texans, says Houston cannot allow the bad beating to get to it.

"I wouldn't say this is the time to panic," Demps said in a story in the Houston Chronicle.

"You've gotta have some amnesia," Demps continued. "You can't carry it on for the next week, because if we carry it on or start a grudge like, 'I should have done this or that,' it's just going to lead into the next game.

"Yeah, we got our butts whipped, but it's about how you do the next day, and we're very excited about the next challenge."
