State of the Texans:
In a celebratory episode of Luv Ya Steel Blue, Pat makes his triumphant return to the podcast with Mike and Cleaver as they discuss the Texans second consecutive division crown, why J. J. Watt should win defensive player of the year and whether or not Gary Kubiak and Matt Schaub are the demons this fan base makes them out to be. We might even discuss some of the creepy things you can do with an iPhone and Face Time. All of this and much much more in this week’s expanded episode.

As the Texans seal up the AFC South, both J.J. Watt and Aldon Smith are in position to dethrone Strahan. But Watt's game is on a way higher level.
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Reggie White altered the future of NFL free agency when he signed with the Green Bay Packers in 1993, leaving the Philadelphia Eagles in the middle of one of the most dominant careers of any defensive player in NFL history.
He continued amassing sacks he currently stands second to Bruce Smith in league history with 198 -- while with Green Bay and became perhaps...

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. How uptight are the Minnesota Vikings with the playoffs on the line over the season's final two weeks?
So uptight that they staged a dance-off between defensive linemen Fred Evans and Everson Griffen recently. Minnesota is focused on trying to win its third road game of the season Sunday when it travels to 12-2 Houston before the season finale at home against...
There has been plenty of talk since J.J. Watt has taken the 2012 season by storm and has become the unquestionable defensive leader of the Houston Texans. Watt through fourteen games has put up some numbers in his second season that some players only dream about,
74 total tackles, 19.5 sacks, 15 pass deflections and 3 forced fumbles
Watt is pushing for the NFL Defensive Player...
Matt Schaub and the Houston Texans are back on top of our power rankings this week.
1. Houston Texans (2): Nice divisional win to get back on track. Let’s see if they can wrap up home field this weekend.
2. Denver Broncos (3): Even when Peyton wasn’t carrying the team they still won. If Knowshon Moreno continues to play this way, they’ll be even more difficult to defend...
Some of us sit here waiting for week 16 of the NFL season to get underway with little to no excitement. Many of our favorite teams are not in playoff contention, and most of our fantasy football squads have by now been knocked out as well.
If one of those statements, or God forbid both of those statements, ring true for you, I’m here to point out why you should still be tuning...
Houston Texans running back Arian Foster decided to buy each one of the offensive lineman that block for him each and every week a segway, as a way to show his appreciation. “They all, as a front, can enjoy the joy that I get from riding my Segway,” Foster said. Foster, the Texans’ All Pro running back, always rides his Segway around Reliant Stadium. He, along with Andre...
The Texans have the fifth-ranked run defense in the NFL for a reason – they focus, with great success, on limiting a running game and have stopped some impressive runners so far. We look at the numbers and get reaction from head coach Gary Kubiak.
The first divisional matchup between the Houston Texans and the Indianapolis Colts had divisional as well as playoff implications, making it a big game. With a win, the Texans would clinch the division, while the Colts would clinch a playoff spot. Both teams needed a win to keep their positioning in the playoff race as well as the division; however, the Texans flexed their muscle...
While most observers will be looking for big plays from the star running backs or defensive ends, the ultimate game managers – Matt Schaub and Christian Ponder – may have more to do with who wins or loses.
The Texans increased their franchise record win total to 12 with their 29-17 win Sunday over division rival Indianapolis Colts. The Texans clinched the AFC South with this win and they are now one win away from clinching the number one seed in the AFC and home field advantage throughout the playoffs.
Arian Foster followed up two of his worst games of the season with...
