Hey folks - Steph Stradley has been kind enough to allow the Comrades at WDR invade her Texans blog for Q&A ahead of the matchups in recent years vs Houston. Our most recent preview, for Saturday's playoff game just went moments ago. We're returning the favor now (for a 2nd time now, read her previous Q&A here). So read on to find out all you ever wanted to know about the Texans from a very passionate and insightful fan. In case you doubt her credentials, allow me to producd her blogging CV:
Steph Stradley (@StephStradley) is a Houston-based attorney who writes a Texans blog for the Houston Chronicle online and her personal/professional blog here. In 2006, she was voted Ultimate Texan fan, and the Texans sent her to the Super Bowl.
Impressive. Let's begin.
What in this Texans season is surprising to you? I thought before the year, even with Peyton Manning healthy, that the Texans were favored to win the AFC South if they stayed healthy. Football Outsider...
BEST OF MAXIM
HOUSTON First playoff win for a Houston team since 1991. First playoff win, ever, for the Houston Texans. First time in a long time this overlooked football city announced in no uncertain terms to the rest of the country that it needs to take its franchise seriously.
Never mind that, in using a phenomenal defensive outing and a mistake-free rookie quarterback to dispatch the Cincinnati...
KICKOFF: Saturday, 4:30 p.m. ET
SURFACE: Natural grass
PREDICTION: Texans 23-17
KEYS TO THE GAME: C Chris Myers has his hands full as the leader of an offense with a quarterback making his sixth career start. Myers' calls, of coverage and adjustments, ease the burden on T.J. Yates but he'll have to win with long drives as he did three weeks ago...
That game went exactly and not at all like I thought it would. Sloppy start? Check. Arian Foster wears the Bengals down late in the game and busts a long play? Check. 31-10 – WHAT?!?!
Incredible game, and there can be no doubt that the ridiculous, stupendous interception by JJ Watt was the play of the game. No matter how many times I watch that play, it’s still unbelievable...
The Texans make their first playoff appearance Saturday against the Bengals, who are in the playoffs for just the third time the past two decades. Which team will overcome their inexperience?
Andy Dalton and T.J. Yates weren't around for any of the miserable seasons the Bengals and Texans have had over the past two decades.
And that's quite a few.
The rookie quarterbacks now control which of the long-suffering franchises gets a milestone victory when the teams kick off the playoffs on Saturday. They'll make some NFL history no matter who wins - it's...
No first-time playoff jitters for the Houston Texans.
Yes, it's that time again — you Houston Texans fans may have to search your memory banks for the last time your city hosted a playoff game (Hint: it was when the Houston Oilers lost in the wild card round to the Kansas City Chiefs at the old Astrodome on January 16, 1994). Yikes! Even the Detroit Lions have a playoff memory from January, 2000 (or, shortly before owner William...
