I was born and raised in Houston, left for a short stint to Austin and came back to the Woodlands about four years ago. I love this city and all of our teams because we have owners that want to do things the right way. My 'Stros are rebuilding from the bottom up, but my Rockets and Texans are knocking on the door. Nothing would make me happier than to see Andre Johnson or Daryl Morey win it all.

Spotrac: Watt's Next Contract Will Probably Be Huge

25

"Watt's production is so far ahead of any other pass rusher in the game right now, that even comparing him to the best of the best isn't enough to "de-value" him in terms of overall dollars.
He scored an average of 79% better than the top-paid defensive ends in football, a figure that when factored into our base contract numbers turn into:

Spotrac's Prediction: 6 years, $142,272,798"

[Relevant disclaimer]
"While it may seem outrageous to assume the Texans or any team might actually make an offer this high - we're simply determining the true value of Watt at this moment in time - as outrageous as it may result in."

Read the full analysis of Watt's true value on Spotrac.

The Case Keenundrum/Coaching Crisis

Well fellow Texans fans, here we are. A part of me is glad that I was forced to see this team for what it really is, as opposed to another "one and done" playoff appearance and another offseason of...

If Michael Floyd Falls Within Reach

If Michael Floyd fell to #17 (I know it is unlikely, but this is all for fun.... isn't it?) I think our squad should make a move up for him. I say this because according to most trade value charts,...

The Texans and Stephen Hill

The weeks in between the combine/pro-days and the draft are usually filled with such excitement for me. No more tests or drills or proving to be done, everyone's chips are on the felt. However,...

Alshon Jeffery is better than Stephen Hill

To be honest, the title says it all. We need a WR that can come in and contribute first and foremost. His ceiling will be a luxury and we cannot expect to replace Andre Johnson with the 26th pick...
