The Houston Texans have to look at this d-lineman in free agency

In a league where the rules are heavily tilted in the favor of the offense, there aren’t a lot of ways for the defense to fight back. All too often, their role in a game is to slow down the bleeding, not stop it. Dominating on that side of the ball has become more and more rare. But that doesn’t mean it can’t happen. In fact, we’ve seen a few examples in recent years where...

The Houston Texans can’t let this offensive lineman get away in free agency

It’s a tough position to evaluate. There aren’t a lot of stats to help with the cause. Styles of play can sometimes skew opinions.

Whether a team is run-first or pass-happy, the ability to control the line of scrimmage is the key to...

Assessing the Houston Texans cornerback situation

Everyone around the league has heard about the quarterback situation for the Houston Texans. With the Texans going 9-7 in 2014 and earning the 16th pick in this year’s draft, the only way for them to get one of the “franchise-quarterbacks” is to trade up.

Why J.J. Watt should be the 2014 NFL MVP

What I hate about the NFL MVP award is that there’s no way to judge players against players who don’t share a position. Even if a point guard and power forward do different things in basketball, they accumulate the same stats. They both play offense and defense.
