    If Bands Sponsored NFL Teams: The NFC

    Recently we wrote about the ramifications of KISS and Vince Neil buying their own Arena Football League teams and what it would be like if NFL teams were also themed around bands and musicians. We started by running down the AFC, including our hometown Houston Texans. This time we're going to exami ... More >>

    Houston Texans Cut Two Three RB's, Sign Two RB's

    There are words of wisdom correlating to certain levels of job security in the NFL. Update: 8:21 a.m. Overnight, the running back purge continued as the Texans released a third running back within just a few hours. This time, it was Houston native Tim Cornett, who was a Houston Texan for all of tw ... More >>

    Patrick Peterson Signs $70M Extension, J.J. Watt Watch Begins

    On the surface, it's odd that a contract extension inked by a cornerback on the Arizona Cardinals should worry Houston Texan fans about their all-universe defensive end. But this isn't just any cornerback, and he wasn't just drafted in any year. The cornerback is 2011 first round pick Patrick Pet ... More >>

    Post-NFL Draft Super Bowl Odds Are Far Too Kind to the Houston Texans

    For NFL Draft enthusiasts and for those of us who make our living discussing the NFL, it feels a little strange to be dissecting the draft fallout in mid-May. This year, as has been mentioned here a handful of times, the draft was pushed back by two weeks, which left a lot more time for the league ... More >>

    Cardinals 27, Texans 24: Seven Painful Losses in a Row

    As the losses continue to mount, it gets more and more difficult to predict how the Texans will lose. On Sunday, they seemed to play better on the whole, but mistakes on both sides of the ball cost them. It hasn't helped that injuries continue to be a problem as well. Not only has Arian Foster been ... More >>

    Gary Kubiak Is The Greatest Middle Manager Of All-Time

    There's an old saying in business that says the measure of any manager's (or for our purposes, any head coach's) true value is in how similar, in his or her absence, the business (or team) runs as it would with him or her present. In other words, if you've done a good job managing and coaching oth ... More >>
