The return of [NAME REDACTED 2.0]

Just when Houston Texans fans thought this season couldn’t get much worse, the Cleveland Browns come to town with former Texans No. 1 pick Deshaun Watson at the helm.

Watson is returning for his first NFL action since he quit on the Texans almost two years ago. In an odd twist of NFL scheduling and suspension fates (or Roger Goodell funny business to drive TV ratings), Watson’s first game returning from...

Where do the Texans land after their ugly loss to the Dolphins?

On Sunday, the stinking, smelling, cantankerous, filthy, grungy Houston Texans boiled and ruptured into Hard Rock Stadium and really outdid themselves in stinking up the joint right in front of the Miami Dolphins.

What are the positives and negatives from Week 12?

There has been a lot of doom and gloom around these parts lately. It’s perfectly understandable. When you lose five games in a row and four of them were non-competitive for most of the game, you can’t help but feel a little down. All that being said, we have to look for the light at the end of the tunnel. You can look around the league and see numerous examples of teams that...

The Texans Remain Linked To A Star College QB

After trading away star quarterback Deshaun Watson in the offseason, the Houston Texans are looking for their next franchise star at the position. With the way that they have played in 2022, the Texans will likely find themselves with the first overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.

Houston Texans Run Game Faces Stacked Boxes

With no passing threat, opponents neutralize the Texans run game.

Until two weeks ago, the Houston Texans had arguably the best rookie-led rushing attack in the NFL. Dameon Pierce was a top five running back and well on his way to a record breaking campaign.

After nine games, Pierce had 762 rushing yards, averaging 84.66 yards per game. Projected across the full season, the bulldozing rook was on track to hit 1,439 total yards on the year.

Analyzing the putrid performance of the backup QB

More of the same against the talented Miami Dolphins this past week. The team tried a new quarterback Kyle Allen under center and saw absolutely no change. The offense was held to under 60 yards again in the first half. The Dolphins packed the defensive stat sheet; five sacks, seven tackles for loss, five passes defended, one scoop and score. The few eyes that were on this game were paying attention...

What do the stats say about the Texans 30-15 defeat?

My last season as a varsity volleyball coach was a one win effort. It was a season that I knew was going to be unsuccessful going in and there was a point when I knew conclusively that we would never have a chance of winning again. It’s a lonely moment as a coach. If Lovie Smith were to take a step back he would have to admit he’s there. The Houston Texans have earned the number one overall...
