State of the Texans:
The Houston Texans are 4-0 and proving here in the early part of the 2012 season that they are serious contenders in the AFC. At the quarter mark of the season, we want to look at which Texans’ players we would buy, sell and hold on to heading to the halfway point of the season.
It is really hard to pinpoint where the issues lie for the Texans, but we give you who we feel are the ones to watch moving forward.
Glover Quin (16 total tackles, 1 sack, 1 forced fumble, 2 pass deflections)
Glover Quin has been pretty impressive and what he means to the Texans defense is important to know. He is able to play safety (free or strong), linebacker or slot corner when needed, but he has been an exceptional tackler inside the box. With being in Houston in the “lean” years, the best thing for Quin was the move from corner to safety when Wade Phillips came to town. He has a good skill set that lets him be able to be a hybrid player for the Texans and gives Phillips’ the flexibility to put mo...

The Houston Texans have waived third string quarterback John Beck to clear room for the recent addition of safety Troy Nolan. Beck who won a spot on the roster with his good play during the 2012 preseason and was an asset with his knowledge of the offense.

For the fourth time in as many weeks, the Houston Texans took the field and walked off with a win, this time over divisional rivals the Tennessee Titans. Their current 4-0 record isn’t just the best in Texans’ history, it’s the best in Houston professional football history. The old Houston Oilers never had a start to the season like this, and of course neither have the Texans...
The Houston Texans have answered all their skeptics so far with the first 4-0 start in franchise history.
Now the task is staying focused as the stakes get higher each week and they prepare for a nationally televised game against the Jets on Monday night.

Foster is too good Juan…
Ben Tate is running behind arguably the best offensive line in football. He is also running behind arguably the best RB in football. The Texans may be the best team in the NFL with one of the top defensive units, so it would only makes sense that they would run the hell out the ball.
Tate has been pushed as a good flex option on most weeks, but that has...
The Houston Texans are now 4-0 for the first time in franchise history after a big home win Sunday over division rival Tennesseeive Titans. It was a game that the Texans had control of from the starting drive to the closing whistle as they were dominant on both sides of the ball the whole game.Houston Texans QB Matt Schaub has played almost perfect mistake free football, all while...
The beginning to the Houston Texans season has been perfect in the win-loss department, but not perfect overall. They’re a team that is finally gaining national recognition as a legit Super Bowl contender and in many cases, the best team in the NFL through four weeks. But as anybody can tell you, it’s not about where you are as a team in September and early October, but rather...
The Quality Stats Power Rankings continue to fluctuate, but a familiar face returns to the top spot. And what 2-2 team dropped 12 spots to No. 28 in our rankings?
Jake Locker’s shoulder separation occurred in Week 1 but the Tennessee Titans have increased their concern after it popped out again this week.

The Texans move to 4-0 for the first time in franchise history while the Jaguars fail to impress yet again.
Members of the Houston Texans accused Tennessee Titans tackle David Stewart of employing some dirty tactics during their game on Sunday, including pulling the hair of Houston linebacker Brooks Reed, the Houston Chronicle reported. "I saw some things I've never seen before," Texans defensive end Antonio Smith told the Chronicle. "I saw him try to pull (Reed&...
The Houston Texans' 38-14 defeat of the Tennessee Titans was not a fun game to watch for two-tone blue fans. The Texans scored two early touchdowns and cruised from there.
The Titans never really had a chance, which is evident from a few key statistics.
The Titans lost the turnover battle, with three to the Texans' none. Two of the three Titans turnovers...
With the season now 1/4 over with, there has been no lack of excitement and upsets through the first four weeks of 2012. Houston has clearly established themselves as perhaps the most well-rounded team in the NFL. Boasting a ferocious pass rush led by second-year defensive end J.J. Watt (league-leading 7.5 sacks), the Texans are also strong against the run. Offensively, the team...
It is still hard to believe that we would say, at any point, that the Houston Texans are 4-0, even after they beat the Tennessee Titans 38-14. The Texans fell flat for a short time in the first half when the score was 14-7 going into halftime, but thanks to Titans right tackle David Stewart he woke up the defense in a big way. Stewart pulled Brooks Reed‘s hair, threw a hay maker...
Tennessee Titan’s quarterback Jake Locker left today’s game against the Houston Texans in the first quarter with an apparent shoulder injury.
