Matt Schaub suffered a broken foot week 11 last year, effectively killing the then 7-3 Texans’ Super Bowl chances, which were just starting to look promising. TJ Yates played admirably and probably better than anyone would have expected, but the Texans still lost in the AFC Semis to the Baltimore Ravens. Now 7 months removed from the injury, Schaub says he’s 100%. He won’t participate in the Texans’ minicamp next week, for precautionary reasons, but he should be a full go for Training Camp. The Texans have lost a lot this offseason, including 2 starters on the offensive line, Mike Brisiel and Eric Winston, their starting middle linebacker, DeMeco Ryans, their best pass rusher Mario Williams, Joel Dreesseen, who played significant snaps at tight end, and Jason Allen, who played significant snaps at cornerback. However, they still have a lot of talent and made it to the NFL’s final 8 last year without Schaub and with Andre Johnson missing significant time. In a weak AFC, they could en...

Houston Texans QB Matt Schaub proclaims he’s 100 percent healthy

The Houston Texans are the preseason favorite to repeat as AFC South divisional champions and in some circles, are a trendy pick to represent the AFC in this year’s Super Bowl after heading deep into the playoffs last season.

Due Diligence: The Wide Receivers

During the past few weeks of Houston Texans OTAs, it seems like one of the biggest question marks with the current makeup of the team is the lack of veteran presence in the wide receiver position group. Head Coach Gary Kubiak has made it clear that there is a possibility that the Texans will be looking for a possible veteran to bring into Houston. All that has been said with Andre...

Texans RB Tate knows his time will come

Ben Tate has the perfect attitude. Asked recently about being the quality back-up to Arian Foster, Tate summed things up succinctly: "It's not easy. It's not easy at all. But as you mature you understand the business end. He got a 43 million contract so obviously he's the guy. It doesn't take a genius to figure that out but in my situation you have to be patient...

The Texans were much better than the Titans in 2011

Lately, I've seen some chatter about how the Titans are being unfairly neglected in talking about who might win the AFC South in 2012. After all, the thinking goes, the Titans only finished one game behind the Texans in 2011, and in the offseason the Texans got worse and the Titans got better. The AFC South, so goes the line of argument, should be a very competitive race at the...

What will the Houston Texans receiving corps look like at the start of the season?

At Houston Texans OTA last week, the team fielded seven receivers at practice which have no career NFL receptions between them, a weakness which could create some issues for the team this season as the Texans embark on the defense of their franchise first AFC South division title. Houston has two 10-year veteran receivers on the roster but outside of Andre Johnson and Kevin Walter...

Matty Ice Getting The Cold Shoulder

It’s very possible by the time this post comes out, people will have figured out about Matt Ryan and what he can do for their team.  I get that but right now I’m looking at a quarterback who is being overlooked given his set-up.  Though I’m sure he won’t hold here, having him currently sit as the 16th best QB off the board behind Matt Schaub and – YIKES – Tim Tebow...
