The Houston Texans forgotten star, poised for a comeback year in 2015

The Texans made some big offseason moves on the defensive side of the ball, including former All-Pro lineman Vince Wilfork. He will definitely be a help anchoring down the middle of the line, and free up some double teams for JJ Watt.

But before Ballentine had a chance to prove he belonged in the NFL, his rookie season was cut short. The...

J.J. Watt Tackles Fan Who ‘Rushes Stage’ At Zac Brown Band Concert (Video)

It’s become rather clear that J.J. Watt isn’t afraid of the spotlight — real or contrived. The Houston Texans defensive end has turned himself into a star both on the field and off.

There’s no doubt that the Houston Texans want to see Jadeveon Clowney live up to his status as their No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Let’s face it, Arian Foster isn’t getting any younger, and his body will not magically be revived into 2010-form when he led the league with over 1600 yards rushing. For the majority of the Kubiak era, running the ball was the staple for success of the entire Texans offense. At its peak, the zone-read style opened up the field for play action, and counters all day. Those days...
