BRB Group Think: Expectations For J.J. Watt

The masthead gets together and discusses what the former greatest defensive player in the history of football will do this season.

In this week’s Group Think, we are talking Justin James Watt. Watt should be ready to play Week One against New England. He’s played in just eight games the last two seasons. How many games do you think J.J. Watt will play this season? What should the Texans expect from him?

J.J. is in for all 18 games (yes, not 16) and he gets DPOY. He’s...

Bleach Social: Where Are You Watching Texans-49ers?

Texans fans sound off where and how they will be watching this tonight’s game. I haven’t watched an entire preseason football game in forever. I did so last week. I fell asleep and listened to the announcers talk about Alfred Blue going out and earning it. I don’t know if I can do it this weekend. I’ll watch the condensed game at a minimum. But if I do watch, I’ll have it on while cooking beans for some stupid party I came up with. Whatever. What about you? What are you doing? Are...

Jalen Ramsey Says Deshaun Watson Will Be The NFL MVP In Short Order

Someone else has high praise for the Texans’ quarterback.

The ego has no bounds. Some people’s confidence in themselves and their ability travels out into infinity. Jalen Ramsey is one of those people. And rightly so, as after being in the NFL for just two years, playing a position that takes two years to get the hang of, Ramsey has already firmly planted himself as a top five cornerback in the game.

Yesterday, a braggadocios interview between Ramsey and GQ was released. In it, Ramsey...

Deshaun Watson set for another brief appearance in second preseason game

Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson played five snaps in the team’s first preseason game of the summer and it doesn’t look like he’ll be around much longer when they play the 49ers on Saturday. According to head coach Bill O’Brien, the reason why there’s no need to extend Watson’s stay in the lineup is because he’s [more]

Five Weeks Of Hell: Revisiting Joe Flacco’s Historic Super Bowl Run

For five weeks and four games, Joe Flacco was elite.

Six years ago, it was much more fun to be a football fan. Instead of spending the summer discussing a potential helmet rule neutering the game and making it impossible to play, the morality of standing up for the National Anthem, whether NFL owners are colluding to keep players who protest off the field, the unfair competition and treatment of cheerleaders, or brutal head injuries that can suck the life out of the most Herculean of...

Texans Waive QB Stephen Morris

The Texans have waived quarterback Stephen Morris, according to a team announcement. The move will make room for the signing of Nick Rose.  Morris, who turns 27 in less than two weeks, became the fourth quarterback on Houston’s roster when he was signed in May. He was hoping to make a case for being the team’s No. 3 QB, but he has lost out to backups Brandon Weeden and Joe Webb for a place behind starter Deshaun Watson. Initially, it seemed as though Morris had a chance at making...
