cover32 - Texans:
With each passing year, no pun intended, the National Football League becomes more and more of a quarterback-driven league. The day and age of teams running the football 40 times per game are a thing of the past, replaced by an era in which quarterbacks throwing 50 passes across four quarters of play is commonplace.
Thus, having the right guy under center is more important now than ever. Simply put, a team can’t contend if they don’t have a good quarterback. And with rare exception, they can’t win a title unless they have a great quarterback.
So which teams are in the best shape, and which ones are in a world of hurt, when it comes to having the right person in this vital position? The editors at cover32 provide their rankings of NFL quarterbacks, based on who would be the starter if the season got going today. To see if Case Keenum checks in dead last, click here.

The editors at cover32 came out with their top-10 free agent running backs today, and the Houston Texans’ Ben Tate found himself on the list.

The Houston Texans will be heading into the 2014 season off arguably the worst season in franchise history. Their record ties the worst, but for the overall feel of the team, the build up in the preseason of Super Bowl aspirations, and the complete nosedive after the first quarter of week 1, no one can argue against the fact...
