    Texans 23, Bills 17: Four Winners, Four Losers

    The way the Texans' 2014 schedule lays out, given the caliber of opponent they've played, the first quarter of the season looked a lot like the same portion of many college teams' schedules -- a few non-divisional opponents, one of them (as it turns out) that's pretty good, the remainder being lower ...

    Texans Draft Woes Continue, Louis Nix III Heads To Injured Reserve

    It's too early to tell if the Texans last couple draft classes are cursed, just not that good, or some combination of those two things. The one thing that is undeniable is that, on the whole, it's hard to find another team in the NFL (certainly a team that is 2-1 and favored to win in Week 4 at hom ... More >>

    Texans Trade For QB Ryan Mallett, Case Keenum Era Over

    Waiver wire time in the NFL is like fishing through the discounted $4.99 DVD bin in your local Wal-Mart. One by one, you pick up, glance at, and summarily toss aside classic time wasters like A Fish Called Wanda, Can'T Buy Me Love, or any of the 90's superhero movies involving a protagonist other ...

    Houston Texans: Final 53 Man Roster Prediction

    Normally, in the NFL's preseason, there's been a logical progression whereby you learn more and more about a team with each passing preseason game. In years past, the starters play a quarter in the first game, two quarters in the second game, three quarters (roughly) in the third game, and then the ... More >>

    Texans 18, Broncos 17: 4 Winners, 4 Losers

    For the most part, preseason football is very boring. I don't think I'm breaking any new ground with that white hot take. Unless you're completely into the 90-to-75 cutdown bubble, or you're a degenerate gambler, there's not a whole lot of compelling stuff going on in the fourth quarter of a Prese ... More >>

    Texans-Broncos: Five Roster Battles To Watch

    Going out to Texans practice during the preseason is one of the more enjoyable parts of my job. Typically, it's well attended by fellow media members, so it serves in part as a decent social outing each late July and early/mid August morning. In fact, the first day of Texans' training camp is the c ... More >>

    Texans 32, Falcons 7: 4 Winners, 4 Losers

    335 days. That's how long it had been since the Houston Texans have walked off of a football field having scored more points than their opponent. September 15, 2013, to be exact. If you recall, that was the second regular season game of the tumultuous 2-14 train wreck the city endured last year, ... More >>

    Falcons-Texans, Preseason Week 2: Five Players To Watch

    Thursday was a "feel good" day out at the Methodist Training Center. It was "Texans for DQ" Day (as officially proclaimed by Mayor Annise Parker), and in honor of Texans offensive lineman David Quessenberry, who is battling lymphoma back in his home state of California, everyone who is anyone was w ...

    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.

    Texans-Cardinals, NFL Preseason Week 1: Five Players to Watch

    Depending on who you are, NFL preseason games can serve any number of purposes. For some fans (and talk-show hosts who need five hours of radio content every weekday from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.), they serve as a celebration that football has finally returned, that we survived the two weeks of the calenda ...

    7 Observations on the Houston Texans' First 2014 Depth Chart

    In the grand scheme of the "unveiling" scale, I'm not sure where the Texans' first depth chart of the preseason ranks. It's definitely not as exciting as finding out your team's first round draft choice, and it's definitely way more exciting than getting a copy of the new Yellow Pages. It's probabl ... More >>

    Ryan Fitzpatrick Named Texans Starting Quarterback As T.J. Yates Is Released

    All along, it's been a race where naming a "winner" was going to feel like a bit of a misnomer. When the Texans began mandatory minicamp on Tuesday, the open race to see who would be the Houston Texans' starting quarterback consisted of four men -- Ryan Fitzpatrick, rookie Tom Savage, Case Keenum, ...

    Mathematically, the most certain way (or more accurately, the least uncertain way) to acquire a franchise quarterback in the NFL is to choose one with the first pick of the draft.
