OVERREACTING TO T.J. YATES!!!!!

I WANT TO! But no, let’s not. Except that we can all say with confidence now that Yates>Leinart. Small sample size for both, but based on that sample – yeah, it’s done. There are three things that give me a really good feeling about TJ Yates going forward, based on how he did against a solid Atlanta defense (excellent against the run, though not so great against the pass...

Texans' trust in T.J. Yates pays off

HOUSTON The Houston Texans thought T.J. Yates could play, of course. That is sort of the whole point of having him on an NFL roster. "He's an NFL quarterback," running back Arian Foster said. That establishes the baseline expectation. Yates' trade is quarterbacking, and he would be expected to competently ply that trade for the Houston Texans against the Atlanta...

Houston Texans: A Super Bowl Can Be Accomplished

The Texans have already exceeded all expectations. They have beaten all odds, and now for the first time in franchise history we are the number one seed in the AFC and are poised to win the AFC Championship. We are all skeptical of the Texans just completely blowing this, but after watching our 3rd string QB T.J. Yates lead our team to a victory Sunday I have full faith that the...

A week after signing veteran Jake Delhomme, and two days after fifth-round pick T.J. Yates won his first NFL start, the Texans have waived quarterback Kellen Clemens, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Week 13 Fantasy Football Recap: Falcons vs. Texans

Atlanta Falcons – 10, Houston Texans – 17 Right when the Falcons needed a win the most, Matt Ryan (277 total yards, 1 TD, 2 INTs) just wasn’t able to deliver in a hostile road environment.  The Falcons now fall into a position where they’ll have to fight and scrap to try to grab a wildcard with the Saints winning yet again.  TJ Yates (198 total yards, 1 TD) actually looked...

Texans take big step toward playoffs, Falcons miss a big chance

The Houston Texans look like they can win the AFC South no matter who’s at quarterback. And the Atlanta Falcons look like they’re just about out of the NFC South race.
