Paging Matt Stevens

According to Yahoo! Sports, Glenn Earl and Jason Horton are lost for the year - Earl with a crushing injury (lis-franc injury) and Horton with a broken forearm requiring surgery.  Earl has been a...

Thoughts on the Bears Game

Please forgive Tim and me for the delay in posting on the first preseason game.  The bondsman should have Tim out in time for work on Monday morning.  My excuse is that I am forced to watch the...

Think It, Sure, but DON'T Say It

Sure, it's not directly Texans-related, but it smells like something that the Texans would do (at least under the previous regime), so I find it worthy of a mention.  Romeo Crennel is not blowing...

Turkish Invasion

Life does not get much sexier or dangerous than amidst the throngs of a preseason battle for the punting job.  Just ask Rafael Mendoza.  This is why the public cannot keep its eyes off of the...

Dr. Z, Meet Dr. B.

Rather than the ultra-hip trend of getting knifed at a strip club or engaging in relations on the deck of a waterborne vehicle, Mark Bruener showed his true colors this offseason - --- by earning...

Amobi Optimistic about Making Camp on Time

Megan Manfull reports that while Amobi Okoye is one of the only two 2007 Texans' draft picks yet to sign, he is optimistic that his agent will get a deal done such that he will not miss any...

Ahman Green and Jason Simmons: The Anti-Vicks

For those of us who have fought off the wise words of Jerome Solomon and persisted in our worthless, pathetic lives as Texans' fans, a story reported reported  by ESPN.com (albeit way back on the...

Texans Ink Bennett, Sea Devil

Megan Manfull reports that the Texans signed their fourth-round draft pick, Fred Bennett of South Carolina, to a deal (terms undisclosed).  Two in, four to go.  Unlike Diles, Bennett seems a lock...

Falcons Having Second Thoughts? Really?

Adam Schefter at the NFL Network reports an earth-shattering development in the aftermath of the Vick indictment: the Falcons want Matt Schaub back.  According to Schefter, there is a rumor...

Texans Sign Last Draft Pick First

The Chronicle reports that Zac Diles has signed a four year deal worth $1.72M, including a $56,915 signing bonus.  The deal could become more valuable if Diles plays in 35% or more of the plays in...

Solomon Calls Texans' Fans "Losers"

I typically only use Jerome Solomon's columns as starter for my charcoal grill, but his most recent "work" may not be worthy of such an honorable demise.  Solomon lamely attempts to align the...

Viva Antigua!

One of my personal favorite autumnal pilgrimages is a virtual trek to Antigua to visit my friends at Sportsbook.com.  It's never too early to take a look at what they're thinking for football...

Ah, Man, the Texans' RB Corps Gets No Respect

Tim already chronicled the WWLIS' ridiculous, yet quite predictable, disrespect of the Matt Schaub acquistion.  The hilarity continues, as the suits in Bristol have ranked the Texans' current RB...

Just When You Think You've Read It All

ESPN The Magazine's Seth Wickersham has done it - driven me to tap my bottle of Bullet whiskey at 9:35 EST on a Sunday night.  There's no earth-shattering news in his three-plus page story on...

I'll Never Watch SportsCenter Again

I really have had a difficult time watching SportsCenter for a while now, but this takes the cake.  This whole "Who's Now" bracket should be hosted by Jules Asner and Ryan Seacrest and aired on E!...

Is It Possible to Upgrade from Kevin Walter?

Thanks to Len Pasquarelli for the idea.  Ex-Irish WR Jeff Samardzija is faring much worse for the Daytona Cubs than he did in Charlie Weis' offense.  How badly?  0-5 with a 5.22 ERA, including...

I Feel the Same Sensation Watching the Texans on Sundays

DT Ben Lynch tore his ACL while participating in Texans' training camp in August 2003, and the horrific cycle of infections, surgeries and complications that followed leave Lynch far from his...

Sellout String in Jeopardy?

According to Pro Football Talk, the Texans still have nearly 2000 season tickets available for the 2007 season, despite the acquistion of Matt Schaub, the exile of David Carr and the possible...

Coach Kubiak: Seven Times More Popular than Congress

According to an ESPN Sports Nation poll, Coach Kubes finished the 2006 regular season with a rather impressive 78% approval rating among Houston fans.  Quite a rebound, considering that his...

Mr. Darius, Please Pick up the Courtesy Phone

Perfect fit.  Make the call, Smithiak.  This is EXACTLY the type of addition that the Texans need in their secondary.  Darius is a true pro and a very effective player.  Maybe getting cut will...

Now This Would Be a Stout Addition

ESPN's Len Pasquarelli reports that veteran spheroid Sam Adams [was] scheduled to visit the Texans this week to discuss a free agent deal for next season.  Maybe I'm too optimistic regarding a 34...

The "No Fun League" Goes Dry

The Commish is taking things to a whole new level, one that is analogous to smashing a gnat with a sledgehammer.  Prohibiting cold beer on an NFL flight or at a team function is absolutely absurd....

What Ever Happened To...Dave Ragone?

What a wonderful pick DR turned out to be.  Big, strong, product of a productive pro-style Louisville Cardinal offense.  Sure, it didn't work out in Houston, probably for the same multitude of...

Would You Cut...

Commissioner Roger Goodell's new conduct policy is clearly sending shockwaves throughout the NFL.  If, this time last year, Ahmad Carroll was stopped by police and found to be carrying a 9 mm...

Browns got a Steal?

I'm confused - the Browns gave up moved up fourteen spots to get Brady Quinn with the #22 pick, and gave up a 2007 2nd round pick and next year's #1, and that's considered a good "value"?  Someone...

Texans, Saints Make Trade

Crazy start to Round Four, with Randy Moss packing up for New England and Darrell Jackson heading to San Francisco.  Great moves, in my opinion, for both the Pats and Niners.  Meanwhile, in a...

Jacoby Jones - #73

With Jonathan Wade, Jason Hill and Tanard Jackson on the board, I consider this a bit of a disappointing pick.  Lots of potential from Jones, but until he shakes the Mathis jinx, I'll consider...

Sending Tim to the Bottle, 24 Hours Early

What better way to start Draft Weekend by sending our resident Texas Ex to the Bushmill's before lunch?  USA Today has posted a "re-draft" of the 2006 NFL Draft, using the benefit of hindsight as...

SB Nation Mock Draft - #73 pick

The Texans are thrilled to announce the selection of Washington State WR Jason Hill with the #73 overall pick in the SB Nation Mock Draft.  More details to follow, but as our loyal commenters have...

If Hair Ruled the World

The most ominpresent man on the most omnipresent cable network in America sees the Texans drafting as follows in two weeks:1st round: Leon Hall, CB, Michigan 3rd round: Mason Crosby, K, Colorado ...
