Want some Texans branded footwear?

J.J. Watt famously has his own brand and line of gear with Reebok. Nike, the sporting goods company most associated with pioneering the idea of an athlete having his or her own brand thanks to their innovative deal with Michael Jordan nearly forty years ago, has now zagged to J.J.’s zig. They’re releasing a sneaker that features the team instead of the athlete.

Behold! A Texans sneaker/tennis shoe for you to purchase!

Pro Football Focus Grades The Texans In Loss To Steelers

Here’s how PFF’s magical formula recorded the Texans performance against the Steelers.

Another week, and another unbelievable loss by your Houston Texans. With the team at 0-3, it’s hard to find bright spots, but at least this past week the Texans looked competitive in the first half of the game and actually led 21-17 at halftime. Unfortunately, that’s where the Bill O’Brien system kicked in, so the second half was more of what we’ve come to...

2020 NFL Power Rankings: Week Four

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Here’s where our most recent iteration of a 0-3 team is ranked.

For the second time in three years, the Texans are 0-3. I still remember reading takes on the Texans the week following their loss to the Giants back in 2018, repeatedly hearing stuff like “there’s nothing good about this team right now” and, “J.J. Watt is literally the only bright spot.” Man, did we end up proving them wrong by season’s end. Hopelessly optimistic, I hope to...

Eight minutes of pain.

Bill O’Brien spoke to the media Monday. It was about as apathetic as you’d imagine it would be. Ah, the perks of having the Houston football world in the palm of your hand. Without further ado, let’s get into the slop. Link to the full conference is here.
