S.N.O.T. (6/23/2018)

Take off your pants and jacket. It’s ZOMBIE time.

Back on Memorial day I went on a trip up to the East Coast. The focal point of it was going to see The Gaslight Anthem play the ‘59 Sound in its entirety. This was my favorite band until they broke up...sort of. They mutually went on hiatus. There hasn’t been any new music from this group aside from side projects the drummer has smashed away on and Brian Fallon’s pretty good folksy/Americana songs. Now I don’t know what that means,...

Kareem Jackson will play safety full time

The Texans began experimenting with Kareem Jackson at safety during the offseason program as the team explored all options in trying to replace Andre Hal. Jackson performed so well at the position that he will play the position full time at training camp, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports. Jackson, 30, has practiced at [more]

BRB Group Think: Rockets & Rocks

The overlords let you know who they think will make a leap and a tumble this offseason

For this week’s group think Mike asked two questions that I am scrapping together like that baby head attached to an octopus in Toy Story. The two questions are very simple.

Rocket—Name a player you feel will rise to the occasion this season and detail why you think this.

Chris Thompson has found his niche on Texans’ special teams

Devin Hester, Matthew Slater, Bill Bates and Steve Tasker are among the NFL players who established themselves as standout special teams players. Chris Thompson wants to do the same with the Texans. The Texans list Thompson as a receiver on their roster. In truth, he’s more of a special teams player. He played 99 snaps [more]

Texans Not Mentioned As Possible Landing Spot For Earl Thomas

ESPN talks hypothetical trade offers for Earl Thomas, but they fail to address a very legitimate suitor.

Remember the last time the Houston Texans had a Pro Bowl safety? It’s only happened once. One player, from either safety spots, over the course of seventeen seasons.

Danieal Manning back in 2013. And he was an alternate.

Now, imagine if Houston could send not one (Tyrann Mathieu), but two starters to the NFL’s All-Star Game after the 2018 season.

Houston Texans Claim One Offensive Lineman Off Waivers, Release Another

The team swaps tackle prospects as they look to bolster their depth on the offensive line.

With training camp still a month away, the Texans are officially in the dog days of summer. This allows them to tweak the roster in preparation for the upcoming season. Yesterday, the Texans claimed second-year OT Roderick Johnson off of waivers and released OT Kendall Calhoun from the roster.

Bill O’Brien feels good about J.J. Watt “because J.J. feels good about J.J.”

If J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney stay healthy this season, the Texans defense should return to being a dominant unit. Houston dropped from No. 1 overall in total defense in 2016 to 20th last year. Watt has played only eight games combined the past two seasons, making 1.5 sacks. Watt’s 2017 season ended with a [more]

What Would You Have Traded For Rob Gronkowski?

It was just a rumor, but let’s take it a step further.

As Weston posted earlier today, your Houston Texans were reportedly in talks, at some point earlier this offseason, with the New England Patriots about acquiring Rob Gronkowski in trade. We have no idea how far along those discussions got; it’s quite possible they never advanced beyond a preliminary stage. Nevertheless, as a petty way to mine for content a thought exercise, I want to know what you, if you were playing the role of...

Here Are The Details Of Benardrick McKinney’s Contract Extension

Total values. Dead money. Annual Salary. If you are into that sort of thing. Last week, the Houston Texans announced they had extended the contract of inside linebacker Benardrick McKinney for an additional five years. The run game clubbing, quarterback devouring blitzer is a very good football player, so it makes total sense for him to stay in Houston even after his rookie deal is completed. What wasn’t announced were the contract details. How much will McKinney be paid this year? How...

Report: Texans Discussed Trade For Rob Gronkowski With Patriots

The Texans supposedly discussed a possible Gronkowski trade because Bill O’Brien used to coach in New England.

The Texans have had terrible tight ends since Bill O’Brien became the head coach of the Houston Texans. This upcoming season, he’s going to have another shoddy group. Ryan Griffin can’t block or do much more than run into the flat for four yards on 3rd and 7. Stephen Anderson is a big target but also can’t block; he has been a disappointment in the red zone.

John McClain: Texans May Not Extend Jadeveon Clowney’s Contract This Offseason

Ow! This is a lukewarm take.

One of the few things I thought was certain entering this offseason was that the Texans would extend Jadeveon Clowney. This hasn’t happened yet. Clowney got his knee cleaned up at the conclusion of the 2017 season. He hasn’t participated in football-related activities thus far; he was missing during OTAs and the mandatory mini-camp. I happen to think that Clowney not playing is better than him kind of playing this time of year. His health for the 2018 season...
