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. And the difference between a win and a loss on any given play isn’t always black and white. But what is clear is that it’s a vital position. Whether a team is run-first or pass-happy, the ability to control the line of scrimmage is the key to...

Romeo Crennel is why the Texans will let someone else overpay Kareem Jackson

That might sound like a weird title for an article but if you look at Romeo Crennel’s history with cornerbacks he has gotten some pretty average corners to have pretty amazing years. His proven track record with pretty much any cornerback he was handed, is why the Texans won’t overpay Kareem Jackson.

Did Trae Waynes impressive showing at the combine hurt the Texans?

Trae Waynes had an impressive showing at the combine this year, he ran the 40 in 4.32 seconds which makes him the fastest cornerback at the combine. Measuring 6 foot, 186-pounds he has the size that NFL teams are looking for in a cornerback. This is all great news for Waynes but bad news for the Texans. Plenty of mock drafts had Waynes projected going to the Texans at the sixteenth...

How did Houston Texans QB Tom Savage fare in this week’s QB Rankings?

Quarterback is the most important position in all of sports. That’s why teams are so willing to pony up big bucks to a signal caller when they have (or think they have) a guy who can do the job. One look at the highest paid players in the NFL will support this fact; it’s a list littered with QBs. But part of the equation is also tied to supply and demand. Sometimes, teams are...

Houston Texans slip in the latest Power Rankings

The offseason is only unofficially upon us, as teams have made coaching and front office changes, released players to create cap space, made decisions on their own pending free agents, and started evaluating draft prospects. As a result, teams look slightly different now than they did when the regular season ended. And that means it’s time to once again grade each franchise in...

How close was Peyton Manning to joining the Houston Texans back in 2012?

The Houston Texans didn’t really give Peyton Manning a serious look back in 2012. Coming off four neck surgeries and a missed season it’s hard to blame them, but whose decision exactly was it to not pursue Manning? Probably some combination of people, but the head coach at the time apparently wasn’t on board. Per @RapSheet, Kubiak was one of the Texans' people who did NOT...

Should the Houston Texans consider a TE in the NFL draft?

It may not seem like a glamourous position, as tight end is still viewed by many as a job that is as much about being an offensive lineman as it is a wide receiver. But that’s a notion that is quickly changing, becoming more and more outdated with each passing season. Across the NFL, tight ends are a major part of passing attacks. And their role isn’t just as a possession receiver...

Sorry but Kareem Jackson is not the top free agent cornerback

Kareem Jackson is being labeled by a lot of people as one of the top free agent corners. If you are a Texans fan that sounds very weird, and I am not here to add to the Kareem Jackson hate, just to show he isn’t the top corner in free agency. His play has been a roller coaster ride over the last few years, turning in two good seasons; one was perfectly timed with his free agency...

Did Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt top these latest Power Rankings?

When people think about an NFL team, usually one person immediately jumps to mind. It’s the player, coach or owner who is most immediately identifiable with the club.
