The Houston Texans are a team quickly on the rise.  No longer can you pencil in the Patriots, Colts, and Steelers as the AFC’s Super Bowl representative. Unlike most teams in the league, the Texans do not have a glaring weakness. They have one of the league’s best rushing attacks as well as defensive units.  To make them even tougher to beat, they have a more than capable passing game that routinely burns defenses with play-action.Here are five of the most memorably draft selections that have helped shape them into a Super Bowl contender. No. 5: David Carr, 2002The Houston Texans are one of the elite teams in the NFL, thanks in part to the success they have had drafting players.  Carr doesn’t fit under this category however, as he is largely considered one of the biggest busts after being selected with the first overall pick in the 2002 draft.   I would venture to say the Texans didn’t get their monies worth after giving Carr a seven-year, $46.2 million rookie contract.  Carr holds ...

Houston Texans cheerleaders do the “Fandango” dance (VIDEO)

YouTube I hear that Fandango is a popular new wrestler in the WWE.  I hear that Mr. Fandango’s thing is his fancy entrance into the ring.  He comes out like he’s facing elimination on Dancing with the Stars.  Joined by a cutie-patootie salsa dancer, Fandango basically has her be the show as he feels his greased-up self up while performing a few pelvic thrusts.  It’s actually...

Houston Texans to Put the 'Jumbo' in Jumbo-tron

Everything is bigger in Texas, right Jerry Jones? That was true a few years back when the Dallas Cowboys opened their new stadium with what was then the largest in-stadium video screen in the world. The record has since been overtaken by a couple different places (one of the racetracks holds it now I think). The record will soon be back in Texas; more precisely it will belong...

Texans new video boards to be world's largest

HOUSTON (AP) -- The Houston Texans are hoping their new HD video screens will help lure the 2017 Super Bowl to Reliant Stadium. The Texans are in the process of installing the video boards, which will be ready for use in Houston's first preseason game in August. Cowboys Stadium in Arlington currently has the biggest screens, and Houston's will be about 30 percent larger...

Miami and San Francisco are in the running for the 2016 game - Super Bowl 50 - and the runner-up will compete with Houston for the game in the following year.

Houston Texans: Is the Window Quickly Closing?

I seem to have rattled the cage this morning by suggesting that not only did I think the Texans were not a Super Bowl contender as currently constructed, but that they could be in a fight just to make the playoffs if they whiff in this year’s NFL Draft. Personally, I feel like this team had a window and they might have missed it. Do I believe it is permanently closed? Of course...
