  1. Texans off-season thread

    This is really interesting to me. Although RB is not a major need for us it needs to be upgraded. Foreman and Ervin are question marks coming off IR. Lamar has shown himself to be solid but unspectacular. What are everyones ideas about improving this area of our offense?
  2. Tyrann Mathieu to Houston

    Happy to have him. Does he play FS for us? ... Really not sure how this secondary will shake out right now.
  3. I think Sua Filo gets a bad wrap from fans and pff. He has been a solid run blocker on occasion but pass protection has always been his weakness. I think the worst game of his life was week 1 vs jacksonville. But according to pff he has had good games also ( week 16 vs steelers: G Xavier Su’a-Filo, 85.3 overall grade) Its hard for us to see past that jacksonville game but I think the texans may view him differently than us and want to keep him. I'm truly on the fence about keeping him.. I think it might be ok to keep him as more of a depth guy but also see what your saying about cutting our losses and moving on. At the end of the day we need better performances from both guard positions in 2018.
  4. hahaha fake news. This is ridiculous. Why do people make up stuff like this? ... I can see Houston trying to resign him before free agency begins. Im ok with resigning him to a 2-3 year deal.
  5. Coaching staff vacancies

    - The Texans are hiring John Pagano as a linebackers coach, Alex Marvez of the Sporting News reports. Bobby King will continue to coach the team’s inside linebackers. I think this is a great hire. Pagano has 22 years NFL coaching experience including DC in Oakland and with the Chargers. He should do a good job with the OLB. - Titans hired Texans’ Pat O’Hara to coach QBs and Shane Bowen for OLBs. O’Hara was offensive assistant and Bowen was assistant LBs with Texans. Vrabel hires two assistants he worked with in Houston. Neither should be a big loss but I imagine we hire an offensive assistant with the loss of O'Hara (Also interviewed for bears QB coach).
  6. Coaching staff vacancies

    Texans hired Danny Barrett as RB coach, promoted Anthony Midget to DB coach and hired Tracy Smith as assistant special teams coach under Brad Seely, who was hired this week. Per John McClain.

    Alex Marvez ✔@alexmarvez Source tells @SportingNews that former @packers secondary coach Darren Perry is interviewing for same position with @HoustonTexans 9:29 AM - Jan 16, 2018
  8. Bill O'Brien Hot Seat Thread

    So with BoB safe I am eagerly awaiting the hiring of the departed assistant coaches. ST coach, RB coach, DB coach. I haven't heard any names and not sure where we will get these new coaches from. Has anyone heard any names for assistant coaches for the texans? Coaches are a big part of football and these hires will be important for our success in 2018. With the senior bowl coming up I'm expecting some hires soon..
  9. Texans GM Search Thread

    I believe he left Houston after the draft last season so he didn't even have any part of the Bills free agent acquisitions. I am disappointed about the Gaine hire. I had hoped we would find someone outside the organization who could inject some new life into what we have going on (Joe Douglas was my favorite). This is probably the most boring hires ever and is unlikely much will change with Gaine in charge. I guess thats what McNair is after.. *sigh*
  10. Let's chat about Mike Vrabel...

    I think Vrabel is a good coach and should continue to get better with calling a defense as he gets more experience (this is the first time he has ever done it). That being said the defense is so undisciplined and we have seen the same mistake made on multiple occasions. I think these are small correctable mistakes but we have just seen them over and over from different guys. I don't think it is a lack of talent its just guys being undisciplined, trying to do too much, and miscommunications... Now I think the real question is would we have these same problems on D right now if Crennel was still DC and calling the defense?.... I think no. Crennel always found a way to make it work. I think Vrabel will get better with experience but right now the defense is not good.
  11. Week 13 GDT: Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans

    2 minute warning... we have struggled mightily in the red zone recently. Need a TD to win... throw to Hopkins!
  12. Week 13 GDT: Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans

    Seriously...How long until Vrabel stops playing Kamalu on the edge? I mean we keep getting the same result.
  13. Should Cushing Play?

    I don't like it but.. I say let him play these last few games. He can play the run downs instead of Jelani Jenkins. It will be Cushing's last 5 games with Houston.
  14. Need a stop here from the D
  15. haha no way. We are riding with Savage.
