Saturday Night’s Alright For Commenting (2/16/2019)

Take off your pants and jacket. It's SNOT time.

After months of slobbering around the post modern slop I finally I escaped my pen and the other sheep. I'm driving far and fast and am watching the hills and mesquite turn into open splats of land filled with decrepit leafless witch broom bushes. There's restaurant called restauaraunts. Spats of life illuminated by sweaty food and super motel sign begging you to sleep with the roaches on crusy sheets. Not for me. For I am sleeping on the...

10 dark horse NFL MVP candidates heading into 2019

The 2018 NFL MVP race unsurprisingly proved to be a two-man competition in name only. Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes earned that trophy at the NFL Honors show held the day before Super Bowl LIII, and it turned out the 23-year-old had no reason to sweat before hearing his name called. As John Breech of CBS Sports explained, Mahomes earned 41 of the possible 50 votes. New Orleans Saints signal-caller Drew Brees received the other nine. Both Mahomes and Brees enjoyed spectacular...

2018 Houston Texans Season Review: A Look At The Numbers

The season review continues, and kind of comes to an end, with a look at the numbers from Houston’s 2018 season.

In the future we will never have to watch an actual football game. We can watch the little circles and exes run around a digital grid, and see the play better than we can with our own eyes. Immediately after the game, there will be PFF grades, win probability added, route separation yards, and whatever else you could want, drilled into the side of your skull and poured directly...

BRB Group Think: Fantasy-Casting Antonio Brown To The Texans

LISTEN I know this is ridiculous, but let’s have fun saying “why not Antonio Brown???!!!???”.

LOOK. I know this is foolish, silly, and a total pipe dream. But sometimes when you are drowning in Ryan Griffin nightmares, Alfred Blue panic attacks, and seizures induced by thoughts of another extended absence by Will Fuller V - YOU NEED TO DREAM BIG.

So let’s do that, if only for a moment.

Allow me to make a logical case for Antonio Brown - which I am not even sure **I** agree with -...

Alfred Blue Needs A Change Of Scenery

You can’t make this up.

ESPN picked free agents who need a new place to live their best life, find their true self, and all those things the internet tells you that just end up making you feel worse about yourself. The Texans’ selection was Alfred Blue. You can’t make this up. I mean, what are we even doing here?

RB Alfred Blue. The running back is headed to free agency after playing in all 16 games for just the second time in his five-year career. Lamar Miller, the primary back, had...

The Film Room: Quinnen Williams Is The Best Defensive Tackle Prospect Since Aaron Donald

I’ve been waiting to make a legit comparison to the Rams’ DPOY. The wait is over.

It’s been a trend the last three or four years to hype up seemingly every short or light defensive tackle as “the next Aaron Donald”. First it was Grady Jarrett, and then it was Jonathan Bullard, and then even just last year it was Taven Bryan. But most of those hope-filled comparisons have been mostly wrong, because I feel like people have mischaracterized what makes Donald so incredible in the...

SB Nation’s NFL Future Power Rankings

It’s a power rankings. It’s just a little different.

The overlords at SB Nation released a set of NFL Power Rankings a day or two ago. The premise of the exercise is really simple. Which teams are built not just for 2019, but for the future beyond that?

It’s mainly teams with a young quarterback and lots of cap space. The Texans are one of those teams, and as a result, they ranked fifth, behind the Colts, Chiefs, Rams, and Bears. Here is what they said.

Texans to release WR Demaryius Thomas

The Demaryius Thomas era in Houston is over.

According to NFL Network’s James Palmer, the Texans will cut WR Demaryius Thomas.

The #Texans are expected to release WR Demaryius Thomas today per source. Thomas tore his left Achilles in Week 16. It’s too early for a time table, but he’s returned from the injury quickly in the past. He tore his right Achilles after his rookie season and came back in 6 months
