State of the Texans:
The season is over and now it is time to look at the Houston Texans rookies and give our grades for them this season.
The Draft Picks
Jared Crick- A spot player but made the defensive line rotation after Tim Jamison went down for the season with an injury. He showed he can play against the run and played both defensive end and nose tackle this season. Still some learning to do, he was called in to spell Antonio Smith in run situations. Expect a bigger workload for Crick in 2013. Grade: C+
Brandon Brooks- Silent for the majority of the season, Brooks ended up playing 6 regular season games and appeared in both playoff games. To be honest, he is a devastating run blocker and pretty decent in pass protection and he showed this in the divisional round against the Patriots. Still needing to work on his overall technique, Brooks gives the Texans a bright future at the interior of the offensive line. Grade: B-
Ben Jones- We have been Jones’ biggest critic especially going against bigge...

Even though the Houston Texans claim Matt Schaub is their starter going into next season, it doesn’t mean they won’t select a quarterback in April’s draft. It certainly sounded like Texans head coach Gary Kubiak left the door open. “Well, we always look at everything,” Kubiak said in his season-ending press conference on Monday. Our sources wouldn’t rule out the possibility...
A number of designers have taken their shot at redesigning the Houston Texans helmets and uniforms to their liking.
Could you imagine Matt Schaub, Arian Foster, or Andre Johnson wearing something like this?
Featured are a number of Houston Texans’ helmets and uniform designs. Some are interesting options that fans may like and others may strike a nerve with some fans.
The Houston Texans are so last week, but one last laugh at the cost of the other team in Texas. Cornerback Jonathan Joseph doesn’t believe the New England Patriots are better than his team. The NFL should get someone running with one of those little cups and get a sample, Joseph must be on drugs. After the Patriots smashed the Texans to a point of almost virtual collapse in December...
It’s that time of year to close the books on the 2012 season and start looking at the 2013 Houston Texans and the first order of business is their own free agents. With 21 potential free agents on the horizon, there are no real Big Money players but there are one or two current players, in our estimation, that are a necessity to keep in Houston.
We take a quick look at the free...
Living in Houston, I have gained first hand knowledge about the post traumatic stress that the beaten and defeated fans in town are going through. All you have to do is listen to local radio for longer than three minutes to deduce it yourself.
So when I was asked to come on Yahoo Sports Radio 1560 The Game in Houston to talk Texans about what went wrong and where they should go from...
After a disappointing playoff loss to the Patriots this past Sunday, Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt says this is just the beginning.
Watt stressed that he’s only going to get better because of how young he is.
“I’m 23 years old and two years into the league,” Watt said, via ESPN.com. “I’m still learning what I’m doing out there,” he said. “I have a lot of...
I’m on vacation Juan…
Andre Johnson and the Texans put up the best fight they could have last weekend, but the Dark Hoodie and his best student Tom Brady took care of business. Looks like he is already enjoying the offseason.

Johnathan Joseph is in denial.
That’s the only logical explanation for his comments in the wake of his Texans falling to the Patriots in the AFC divisional round on Sunday. The cornerback not only can’t believe his team lost, but he also thinks the Texans are still better than the Patriots, who earned themselves a date with the Ravens in the AFC Championship Game with Sunday’s...
The Houston Texans had a chance at redemption against the New England Patriots last weekend and failed to cash in. Just four weeks removed from an embarrassing 42-14 loss at Gillette Stadium, the Texans were once again dominated in every facet of the game. Anyone who watched both games was left with one simple conclusion — the Patriots are a better team.
Johnathan Joseph does...
I really can't come up with any possible reason why any player on the Texans would think they were better than the Patriots. After the first game, which the Texans lost 42-14, I was of the mind that maybe the Texans weren't as bad as that seemed. Then, in the playoffs, the Texans held the Patriots to just one fewer point.
I think that speaks for itself and proved to the...
At least one member of the Houston Texans still isn't sold on the New England Patriots.
Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph played in both losses to the Patriots this season, a pair of ugly wipeouts in which New England outscored Houston 83-42. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was almost perfect in those games, throwing for 640 yards and seven touchdowns without an interception...
If you look at the scoreboard for the two times the Houston Texans and New England Patriots played this season, the Patriots destroyed the Texans 83-42 combined.
Handily defeating the Texans in both match-ups, I’m sure everyone has come to the conclusion that the Patriots are just better. I know I have. But, it appears not everyone feels that way.
If you ask Texans corner Johnathan...
