Dove's 2014 Draft Spotlight: Houston Texans

The Houston Texans are facing the possibility of some major changes this offseason. It’s possible, and maybe even likely, that Gary Kubiak isn’t brought back as head coach.

Texans Misery Cage Match: 2010 vs. 2013

In a word, the 2013 Houston Texans season has been disappointing. Unfortunately, under achievement has become the expectation of many fans and the anger they once felt after a crushing defeat has been replaced with a numb acceptance of their failure. After the team came up well short of expectations during the 2010 season, to borrow a line from one of my favorite TV shows ‘Breaking...

Reed, […]

Texans Watch: Jaguars Edition

Another game is on deck for the struggling Houston Texans and this week the Jacksonville Jaguars are coming to Houston. The expectations are low and rightfully so with the production the Texans have put out this season, but they might have a ray of hope with Jaguars coming to town. The focus will be on evaluation, and what the Texans have in store, good or bad, will be the price...

Texans’ Andre Johnson on Future: “I’m Under Contract”

Covering the Houston Texans this season has been painful, make no bones about it. The news unfolds at a hectic pace, and it is rarely the type of news that any Texans fan wants to associate with. Coach Gary Kubiak made a terrible decision to replace the future of his quarterback position in Case Keenum with Matt Schaub last Sunday, tossing  the turnover machine into the fray in...

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly: Oakland Edition

The Texans blew another halftime lead this week in losing to the Oakland Raiders 28-23. They have now lost eight games in a row after starting the season 2-0.
