  • Houston Texans: Positional Needs to Fill in the Offseason

    The Houston Texans were well-rounded and pushed through some injuries during the 2018 AFC South championship season. This offseason, the Texans have several needs that need to be addressed. With three picks in the first two rounds, it is a general consensus that the Texans need to address the offensive line and cornerback with those picks.

  • Offseason as the Texans GM, Part 1

    Over the course of the offseason, I will participate in simulated versions of the offseason. The only difference is rather than having Free Agency before the draft, the mock draft took place before Free Agency. Free Agency is scheduled to open up soon, and will be part two of this series.

  • Houston Texans: Players Who Could Be Released

    Even though the Houston Texans had a rather successful season — winning 11 games and the AFC South title —  there were tons of players who did not play up to expectations. With the Texans entering free agency with pretty specific needs, here are some cut candidates.

  • Colts at Texans: Keys to Victory

    After an 0-3 start from the Houston Texans, and a 1-5 start from the Indianapolis Colts, both teams have rallied to make the playoffs. The Texans rattled off nine straight wins, while the Colts won nine of their last ten. The Texans still managed to win the AFC South, and subsequently claimed the three-seed. Meanwhile, the Colts beat the Titans in the final primetime game of the season to clinch the last spot in the AFC bracket.

  • Defensive Gameplan to Stifle the Colts

    While slightly unusual, the Houston Texans should take a different approach on defense to the Wild Card matchup this weekend. The Indianapolis Colts’ offensive line has looked superb in the latter part of the regular season. Rookie offensive guards Quenton Nelson and Braden Smith have helped protect Andrew Luck as well as possible.

  • Saturday Matinee in New York & Possible Playoff Matchups

    For today’s game against the Jets, Coutee is out once again with a hamstring injury. Zach Fulton and Andre Hal are questionable.

  • Deshaun Watson and the Stigma Around the Offensive Line

    This season with the revamped offensive line, the expectations were much the same. Those who were signed were swing players on their former teams. The Texans were in desperate need of help though and they had been steady enough over some years to become starters.

  • What's Gone Right For the Texans

    The Houston Texans started the 2018 season poorly. With three straight losses to the Patriots, Titans, and Giants, the season outlook did not look so good. Only three teams since 1990 had ever made the playoffs after starting 0-3; the 1992 Chargers, 1995 Lions and 1998 Bills. Only one team had ever made it to 7-3 after starting 0-3; the 1925 Giants.

    12 weeks into the season, Mayfield and Chubb have combined for six AFC Rookie of the Week honors. The Texans will try to extend their winning streak to nine this Sunday against Cleveland. They have some major game planning to do if they plan on stopping this rookie offensive duo.

  • Titans at Texans: Keys to Victory

    The Tennessee Titans will travel to Houston for tonight’s Monday Night matchup against the Texans. It will be their second meeting this season. The Titans took the first game 20-17, but both teams have made strides since and tonight’s game should look very different.

  • Know Your Foe: Texans at Redskins Q&A

    The Texans travel to Washington following their bye week to take on the NFC East leading Redskins. It may be their most difficult game since the win streak has begun. With over a week to gameplan and study film, it seems entirely possible that the Texans have what it takes to win their seventh straight game.

  • How the Texans Can Overcome Injuries

    The Texans have had an easy ride so far this season and sit comfortable atop the AFC South at 5-3. The injuries have been mounting though and it’s time for the Texans to face their biggest competition of the season, albeit against a team with only three wins.
