Will weak linebackers hurt Romeo Crennel’s defensive scheme?

The Houston  Texans hired Romeo Crennel as their defensive coordinator this offseason and his defensive scheme relies more on the linebackers getting to the quarterback than the defensive lineman, don’t worry J.J. Watt is such a beast he will still wreak havoc. The problem I see with the new scheme isn’t how it will affect Watt, but how well it will work with the two worst...

Texans Sign Nose Tackle Jerrell Powe

The Houston Texans have reportedly signed nose tackle Jerrell Powe, the team announced Tuesday.

Crennel looking forward to return to coaching

MOBILE, Ala. -- Romeo Crennel didn't have to come back. At 66, he could have retired, stayed away, maybe dabbled in consulting or scouting. He wasn't going to do that.

We now know  the name of the Kansas City Chiefs player who killed his girlfiend and then himself, as his family must have been notified.

First-year coaches on the hot seat

Usually first-year head coaches are exempt from the proverbial hot seat, but this season has been anything but predictable, and it has a pair of first-year head coaches beginning to look like dead men walking.
