State of the Texans:
With all the talent that comes out of Texas and goes on to become professional football players for various teams I began to think about the two professional teams we have now. I wondered if I could create an “Ultimate Texas Team” consisted of nothing but professional football players that are currently playing who would I pick? Well, seeing how we only have two professional teams in Texas in the Houston Texans and the Dallas Cowboys how would I build it and who would I pick?
To start I must clear my head of my Texans bias just long enough to build this team in order for me to clearly pick the best players for this team. If you know like I know the Texans would dominate this team’s lineup just based on my bias. With that being said I would start with the offensive side of the ball and this is how my team would unfold.
Offense: Texans scheme
QB – Tony Romo: I know that most of you my Texans fans would want to run me out of town, but my reason for picking Romo is because he’s more ath...

If Houston Texans running back Arian Foster is looking leaner and sleeker in training camp, it’s because he has adopted a new vegetarian diet during the off-season. <
“I didn’t just blindly stop eating meat. I know what I’m doing," Foster said.

HOUSTON Texans coach Gary Kubiak was effusive in his praise, and one object of his accolades on Monday underscored why the Texans should maintain the momentum they established defensively in 2011.
That Kubiak deemed it necessary to applaud third-year cornerback Sherrick McManis for having a "great morning" reinforced just what might be the Texans' most overlooked...
Wade Phillips will tell you Brian Cushing is better than people think. He'll tell you he made all the Texans' third-down calls last season and that whether you realized it or not, he was basically the leader of the defense.
"We coached the Pro Bowl," said the Texans' defensive coordinator. "We didn't have any inside backers that were better than him...
Houston Texans receiver Andre Johnson has left practice with a pulled groin muscle.
Coach Gary Kubiak says Johnson's injury appears minor, but it may still force Johnson to miss ''a few'' practices.
Johnson missed nine games last season with hamstring injuries and was sidelined from the first organized team activities in the spring after arthroscopic surgery...
If it wasn’t for all of the injuries that the Texans had in the 2011 season, they would have had a good chance of scrapping their way to the Super Bowl. Although they made a valiant effort and made it to the playoffs led by rookie quarterback T.J. Yates, the elusive Super Bowl was not in the cards.
However, the 2012 season looks very bright for Houston and they are poised to...

You’re doing me dirty Juan…
2011 Recap: To be fair Andre Johnson was having a pretty nice season until a nasty hamstring injury in week four pretty much ended his fantasy season. He did come back to TJ Yates and a decent playoff run of 201 yards and a TD against the Bengals and Ravens. Not necessarily push overs.
What’s Changed: The Texans had to do what they had...
ESPN.com is reporting that all pro wide receiver Andre Johnson suffered a mild groin injury after the Texans second morning practice on Sunday.
Johnson fell after running a crossing route and had an MRI later in the day.
“It just tightened up on me,” the five-time Pro Bowl receiver said. “I had hit the ground pretty hard, stretching out for a ball. That was pretty much it...

After just his rookie season, Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt has cracked our list of the Top 100 NFL Players of 2012 at the N0. 96 overall spot and is already being projected to the Hall of Fame by his defensive coordinator Wade Phillips.
“He’s going to be a bust — not a first-round bust but a bust in the Hall of Fame,” Phillips said...
Tier 1: The Elite
1. Arian Foster
2. LeSean McCoy
3. Ray Rice
Who I want the most: LeSean McCoy. I love Arian Foster. I love Ray Rice. But like last year, I really love LeSean McCoy. And after these guys, well, let's just say the running backs are a crap-shoot. These are hands down the elite, the most proven, and the closest to a surefire running back you will get this...
HOUSTON For some, the trading of veteran linebacker DeMeco Ryans to the Eagles on March 20 was a haphazard disregard of not only one of the more popular players in franchise history, but a defensive stalwart.
Never mind that Ryans was slowed by a preseason elbow injury and the rebuilt Achilles' tendon that sidelined him in 2010, or that he wasn't an ideal fit in the new...
We do the 2 step to warm up Juan…
The Texans are in full swing at training camp and here are three of their biggest offense stars getting warmed up. Problem is AJ already has a slight strain in his groin and will be held out. It may be minor, but is a big reason I’m holding off on him this season.
I’ll Pass On: Beanie Wells
Going Deep: Kevin Smith
