[EDITOR'S NOTE] Tom is back with an update on his previous article on how James Casey’s involvement influences the offense. He got this to me prior to the game against Oakland, so it’s my fault that it only covers the first four weeks. I’m sure Tom will hit us up again soon with another update. Interesting stuff – thanks again for the contribution, Tom. Take it away!
With his breakout game in Week 3 against the Saints, the James Casey Experiment officially hit full throttle. It’s amazing what relevant fantasy football numbers will do for national exposure. Through 4 games (why do NFL writers insist on calling this the ‘quarter pole’? It’s a term from horse racing that means there is a quarter mile left in the race… but I digress) Kubiak has rolled with Casey as his fullback/h-back/tight end swiss army knife. John Clayton and ESPN still refer to him as a tight end and Vickers, the traditional fullback on the roster, has played exclusively on special teams. After Week 1, I l...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Derrick Mason did his best on Wednesday to minimize any residual bitterness he held against the Jets, choosing instead to steer the conversation to his playing on Sunday for a team in desperate need of his route running, knowledge and, most significantly, his reliability.
At 37 years of age, Mason won't provide the Texans any of the explosiveness they will lack for as long as...
The Texans are expected to sign free agent WR Juaquin Iglesias to their practice squad on Wednesday. It could mean nothing, or it could mean something. On the heels of Tuesday night's Derrick Mason acquisition, CBS Sports' Mike Freeman is speculating that the receiver additions suggest Andre Johnson's recovery from hamstring surgery is going slower than anticipated. The...
Gary Kubiak said during his Monday press conference that the Texans were going to be busy juggling players this week, and he wasn't lying considering there were eight roster transactions that went down over the past 24 hours...
The Houston Texans will be facing the Baltimore Ravens this Sunday and right now receiver Andre Johnson hasn’t been ruled out yet by Texans head coach Gary Kubiak. Johnson is expected to miss at least this week’s game against the Ravens and possibly the week after as well. I highly doubt Johnson will play Sunday. But maybe [...]
Texans coach says five-time Pro Bowler is still recoveringHouston Texans coach Gary Kubiak said five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Andre Johnson (right hamstring) is out for Sunday’s contest against the Ravens.
Star wideout's absence doesn't guarantee anything for defense
The Houston Texans appeared like a different team without five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Andre Johnson in their 25-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
Seems like the local NFL quarterback is enduring quite the beating. And that doesn't include the nine sacks he suffered this season and the array of hits he withstood in Sunday's game against the Raiders. Schaub's getting pounded by fans on local radio talks shows. Talk show callers may overreact, they may not have a complete understanding of the game or whatever criticism...
Who Wins Sunday Between the Texans and Ravens
Houston QB Matt Schaub led drives of 99 and 95 yards to send game to overtimeWhen the Ravens left Reliant Stadium in the early morning hours of Dec. 14 last year, they celebrated a Houdini-like escape from the Houston Texans that was their most improbable win of the season.

This is somewhat surprising, as Rex predicted Mason would have somewhere between 90 – 100 catches this season. Clearly, Mason hasn’t lived up to that hype, and it has seemed he never truly felt comfortable in Green and White. Mason made headlines when he complained to the media about the Jets offense, and he was benched...
