  1. Week 1 GDT: Houston Texans @ New Orleans Saints

    Boy, that really sucks. It was so obvious they were going to let the Saints get into field goal range too. Reminded me of the Pats and Seahawks games of 2017.
  2. Clowney gets Franchise Tag

    Couldn’t O’Brien say this was the doing of the now fired GM and that he wasn’t going to trade him? Maybe he did try and do that and Clowney wasn’t buying it still but it seems like that would have been a reasonable pitch to make. This line of reporting kind of seems like it’s coming from someone close to O’Brien that wants to make him look like less of an idiot by being like he HAD to trade him because Gaine messed up the relationship beyond repair. However, if the relationship was beyond repair in April, why was he still held on to for so long? Why wasn’t he traded before the extension deadline?
  3. Clowney gets Franchise Tag

    I really don’t have any qualms about giving up two first round picks (that should be in the 20s) for a franchise LT. He has the potential to solidify Watson’s blindside for a decade. Also, BOB probably would have blown the picks anyways, so I’m happy they got something worthwhile from them.
  4. Clowney gets Franchise Tag

    What makes 0 sense about this is why did BOB take so long to trade him? He clearly knew he wanted to get rid of Clowney for a while. This wasn’t something that just happened. Why not trade him last year when he is actually under contract? Instead they low ball him this offseason and franchise him and gave him all the leverage because as an unsigned player he can dictate where he goes.
  5. Clowney gets Franchise Tag

    Wow, what a terrible trade for the Texans. Good for Clowney for getting himself into a great situation while making BOB look like an absolute idiot.
  6. Clowney gets Franchise Tag

    He's not trying to prove anything. If he signs the tender then he can be dealt to any team and doesn't want to be dealt to franchises in a mess (ie Washington and Miami). Why would he give up his only leverage? Yeah, I get this feeling too which makes this even more frustrating.
  7. Clowney gets Franchise Tag

    Over the past three seasons only Chandler Jones and Aaron Donald have more TFLs than him and he’s the only player to have finished in the top 10 for TFLs in the past three years besides Cam Jordan.
  8. Clowney gets Franchise Tag

    I hope they can figure something out to keep him in Houston. There is no way the Texans get back anything close to his worth if they trade him. The only way I don’t come out of this extremely disappointed is if they can get a franchise LT out of this.
  9. Texans trade for RB Duke Johnson

    Yeah, I'm a fan of this trade, but a bit surprised at what they had to give up for him. I wonder what the conditions on the draft pick are.
  10. Training Camp/Pre-Season

    Clowney is really, really good and still hasn't hit his full potential when it comes to rushing the passer, so I really don't want to see him leave and would love for the Texans to spend the money (which they have plenty of!) to lock him up. It's very frustrating because this offseason was the time to sign Clowney and have a massive cap hit to take on the majority of his deal for the next couple of years before they have to back up the brinks truck for Deshaun. Alas I don't see that happening and now I'm just hoping they don't let him walk for free, a la Mario Williams, when it comes time to part ways.
  11. Texans fire GM Brian Gaine

    I agree. He seems to bland and boring and obviously something was off about the guy. He interviewed for like 5 other GM positions throughout the years and never got one and he wouldn’t wasn’t even a top 3 choice for the Texans one it seemed and basically was just given to after all the other options ran out. Texans have 40 mil available in cap space still, and yes some of that will need to be used in Deshaun’s next contract, but there were a lot of moves that could have been made to improve the team that just weren’t done and it seems like Cal won’t stand for the status quo like his father.

  13. 2019 FA TALK!!!

    Wild that he is 4th all time in rushing yards lol
  14. 2019 FA TALK!!!

    Duke would be a great fit. Hoping they can pull it off. It would make them more flexible in the draft.
  15. 2019 FA TALK!!!

    Texans TE group struggled with run blocking last year and Fells excels at it. Not exactly an inspiring signing, but it makes sense I think. Also, if Thomas or Akins show a big leap in their pass catching abilities it does make Griffin expendable.
