Last year’s Texans made their first playoff appearance in franchise history and even recorded a postseason victory, despite being forced to start T.J. Yates at quarterback at the end of the season. Could be worse, given the alternative was Jake Delhomme and Jeff Garcia. Being hamstrung at quarterback was too much to overcome despite a valiant effort in a divisional round loss in Baltimore. Houston hopes to build on last season, presumably by hoping Andre Johnson and Matt Schaub don’t get hurt again.

Still healthy after the first preseason game, Arian Foster is atop many if not all draft boards regardless of format. The Rodgers/Brady #1 folk are beginning to make noise and it’s getting louder, but with each passing week the upper tier of the healthy RB's is getting thinner and the guys with question marks loom over the rest of the first round.Last year going into Fantasy...

Coming off of the franchise’s first playoff berth since the team joined the NFL in 2002, the Houston Texans have several reasons to believe that last year’s success was the start of something special.
The naysayers said they would never reach the postseason, the critics insisted last season was over once Matt Schaub went down in Week 10, and the analysts had lost hope due to...
One of the things that the Texans front office has been leaking to the press for close to a year now was that they wanted to come to an agreement on a extension with franchise left tackle Duane Brown before he entered the final season of his current deal. As it turns out, they were telling the truth.
In a season that saw Brown get a pro bowl snub after allowing only 2 sacks for...
The Houston Texans have operated as a franchise since the beginning of the 2001 NFL season. Until last year, the organization and their fans had yet to experience a post-season appearance, let alone a playoff win. That all changed when the Texans beat the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Wild Card game. Houston went ballistic, [...]

He quickly dismissed that notion because the London Games overlapped with the start of Houston Texans training camp and Holliday would much rather make this team.

The great thing about the NFL is that there are so many positions that every year, there is almost always at least one player who has a breakout year on every team, no matter how good or bad the team is. This is the part in a 32 part segment detailing one potential breakout player for the 2012 NFL season on each NFL team. For the Houston Texans, that player is cornerback Brice McCain...
After years of being an average left tackle, 2008 1st round pick Duane Brown finally showed why the Texans used that 1st round pick on him last year, making all 18 of the Texans’ starts en route to an eventual loss to the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Divisional round. Brown, impressively, was the only offensive tackle in the league to make more than 6 starts and not allow a single...
