Found January 11, 2013 on State of the Texans:
Kashif Moore was recently signed to the practice squad by the Houston Texans. He was an undrafted rookie out of Connecticut who has tremendous speed (4.32 /40) and great leaping ability (43.5 vertical). Moore, at 5’9 180 lbs, is projected as kick returner or possible slot receiver. He was with the Cincinnati Bengals but was cut and later awarded to the Indianapolis Colts on waivers. Moore was released and made another stop in San Diego with the Chargers before he was called by the Texans for a tryout. The way I see it, Moore was brought in to be on the scout team to help the Texans better prepare for Wes Welker and Danny Woodhead. Moore is about the same size and has the ability of the two Patriots players.  Although he doesn’t have the snaps, it helps to have a player simulate how they can and will be used. If Moore is to make this team, it will be as a return specialist (during the 2013 training camp), but he would have to beat out Keshawn Martin to do so, which is highly unlikely.

The Texans free fall ends this week, but not in a good way. Ranking the playoff quarterbacks.

The Texans were my preseason pick for the Super Bowl.  By mid season I was looking pretty good with that pick.  Since then, it hasn't looked good for the Texans.

Trindon Holliday’s shows off his explosiveness again with 105 yard kick return to open the 2nd half

I wonder how bad the Houston Texans feel cutting Trindon Holliday?  He had a huge punt return in the first half, and to open the second half he houses this kickoff to give the Broncos their lead back.  There have been a ton of huge plays in this game, and Holliday has been simply incredible.Trindon Holliday now has the longest Punt Return TD AND longest Kickoff Return TD in NFL...

The Patriots will repeat their effort against the Texans this week. Divisional round preview.

Here is a look at the games and my selection of the winners. Baltimore vs...

Patriots Can’t Look Ahead After Clinching Home Field for AFC Championship Game

With the Broncos eliminated from the playoffs, it would be tough for the Patriots not to look ahead and realize that if they beat the Houston Texans on Sunday, the AFC Championship Game would be played at Gillette Stadium. Nine-year NFL veteran Matt Chatham says players have to look past that and just focus on the game ahead. Even after pummeling the Texans 42-14 in Week 14, the...

Patriots Email Shows Texans’ QB Matt Schaub In All His “Deer In The Headlights” Glory (PHOTO)

Since that beat-down, the Texans have gone 2-3 including...
