State of the Texans:
If before the season started someone told you that the Houston Texans would be 2-5 entering the bye week, it would be a hard pill to swallow. The Texans are in this spot with nine games left in the season and looking like a team dead in the water.
The season looked promising when training camp arrived and there was plenty of chatter from the national and local media on the Texans contending for the Super Bowl. The roster is one of the most talented rosters on paper that the organization has ever had.
Like we all know, games are not won on paper but on the field, and that has shown some glaring weaknesses with this 2013 team.
Free Agent Ed Reed
Texans owner Bob McNair asked for a playmaker on the back end of the secondary and General Rick Smith chased hard after veteran Ed Reed. His resume was filled with all the accolades anyone would want for an NFL player. The only issue with Reed was age and his hip, which seems to still be an issue for him seven games into the season. He has n...

The Houston Texans have released veteran linebacker Tim Dobbins today in yet another roster move. Dobbins has been an issue since OTAs when he did not show up but rather chose to stay in Tennessee...
Former Houston Texans defensive end and 3rd round draft pick is out to clear his name for the alleged use of “illegal substances” that got him dismissed from the team this past weekend. Reports have said that the Sam Montgomery, Cierre Wood and Willie Jefferson, all rookies, were cut from the team for smoking pot in the team hotel before the Kansas City Chiefs game.
According to Tania Ganguli of ESPN.com, the Houston Texans released running back Cierre Wood, lineback Willis Jefferson and defensive end Sam Montegomery for smoking pot at their team hotel in Kansas City this past weekend. Three sources who wished to remain anonymous told ESPN.com that the violation occurred due to marijuana use. “I don’t understand why they did it,” Texans...
The Houston Texans are at a crossroads. They are now 2-5, sit three-full games behind Indianapolis in a division that was supposed to be theirs, and are now playing musical chairs at the quarterback position. Incumbent starter Matt Schaub was off to the worst start of his 10-year career in 2013, setting an NFL record by throwing four “pick six” interceptions (interceptions...
The Houston Texans are suffering injuries at a dramatic rate. The Texans have lost starting middle linebacker and defensive leader for the year in Brian Cushing to a broken leg and torn knee ligament, their starting quarterback is battling an ankle sprain, and their blue chip running back is working through a hamstring injury that continues to rear its ugly head.
Long story short...
This week in Player Spotlight, we will look at one of the under rated players on the Texans team. This player doesn’t get much recognition but goes about his business week in and week out. He is a versatile player having had both experience playing at cornerback and at safety. The player in the spotlight this week is Danieal Manning.
When the Texans went into the offseason of...
Absolutely nothing is going right for the Houston Texans this season.
Locked in a five-game slide where most of quarterback Matt Schaub’s completions have been Pick-Sixes, the team was dealt a crushing blow when linebacker Brian Cushing was lost for the season in a 17-16 loss to Kansas City. That was coming off a weekend where the city’s most iconic and beloved football figure...
Arian Foster left Sunday’s game with a strained hamstring, the same one he initially injured one week earlier. Foster is said to have a “mild” strain, which normally correlates with a grade 1 (no tearing, just over-stretch) or low grade 2 (partial tearing). Foster is currently considered day-to-day, as he will use the Texans bye week to rehab and rest the strained hamstring...
Man sometimes in life you have to make your own decisions, and the right decision.
Cierre Wood is a Houston native, and was getting the chance to play ball for his hometown team in the NFL when he decided to make the same choice this weekend, that cost him games at Notre Dame.
Woods, along with former LSU standout Sam Montgomery, and Willie Jefferson got cut by the Texans on Monday...
According to Deepi Sidhu of HoustonTexans.com, Houston Texans’ running back Arian Foster will not miss any further time with his nagging hamstring injury suffered in last Thursday’s practice. Foster was cleared to play against the Kansas City Chiefs last Sunday, but managed to play in only one series before “cutting wrong” and having to leave the game.
Foster is one of the...

The only thing the Houston Texans have to be grateful for is next week’s bye week. Extending the …
What a clever idea. Buy a stock tied to the lifetime football earnings of Houston Texans star running back Arian Foster. San Francisco-based Fantex Holdings is issuing a million shares of stock in Fantex Series Arian Foster at the bargain price of $10.00 each.
I feel one of those late night, 30-minute infomercials coming.
Stockholders will have no claim on Foster's income...
My apologies for the tardiness of this week’s Flipside, but this is what happens when all of my clients decide to flip out at the same time on top of my boss dumping another 10 cases on me. Such is the life of a lowly attorney. But, I digress. I guess we should talk about this horrific five-game losing streak involving our boys on Kirby.
In their week 7 matchup, the 2-4 Texans...
