Pull off your pants and jacket its time. This is that period of the year where the world is continually turning to bring better and wonderful things every weekend. It’s that tradition where I tell myself,  You know what, this probably my favorite time of year, every weekend break, until the fall ends and it will get dark early and everything sucks again. Now is the time to read The Sound as well as the Fury and put your consciousness to the head of someone else’ s within right before Easter, to learn about Geology and dinosaurs and think about exactly how old the Earth is and how a lot it has changed, read Mary Oliver poetry, listen to The Hotelier’s Goodness, Turnover’ s Good Character, Turnstile’s Time and Room, and go for runs and inhale and exhale it all in, and crack yourself open and let it all arrive seeping and running out of your ear.

 

Also, there’ s a new album. Listen to it. It guidelines. It’ s loud and quick and melodic. Kids should be the history song to the cut scene that will break out when you turn on the NHL video game.

Anyways, that’s all I got. It’ s your time and energy to talk about whatever it is you want to discuss: the upcoming NFL Draft, preferred flowers, Fiesta plans, block events, and Jadeveon Clowney’ s forthcoming contract extension.houston texans Discount Gear

  • BRB Groupthink: Hey, There’s Something Good Here
    by Matt Weston on May 24, 2019 at 5:00 pm

    In this week’s groupthink we break out the greatest hit. Not everything the Houston Texans did this offseason was horrendous. Just 95% of it. They made some decent decisions like not signing Tyrann Mathieu for $15 million a year, or franchise tagging Jadeveon Clowney, signing Angelo Blackson and Bradley Roby, and resigning Seantrel Henderson. So, I asked the masthead, what do you think was the best move the Texans made this offseason? Capt. Ron: Cutting Ryan Griffin. When’s the parade? Seriously though, the roster has carried too much dead weight for too long. The failed mid-round draft picks of several years will take time to wash out, but moving forward without Ryan Griffin and Alfred Blue is an important milestone toward improvement. Churn that bottom 20-30% as fast as possible. It’s a shame that my answer couldn’t be: “Extending Jadeveon Clowney with a new contract.” Because he’s way more important than guarding $40 million of cap space like it’s the last Oreo cookie aboard Tony Starks disabled ship somewhere deep in space. bigfatdrunk: Sorry to “me, too!” Ron, but me, too! Shedding ourselves of Ryan Griffin and Alfred Blue, probably the two worst players in the NFL at their respective positions, is some serious addition by subtraction. After the draft, why we cut Griffin was already exceedingly obvious, and it had nothing to do with his TKO with a hotel window. But the why before the draft was also clearly apparent: he was the third best TE on a roster with two rookies, and every pass thrown Griffin’s way was a waste of everyone’s time. Then, there is Alfred Blue. Anybody who claimed that Blue was the best RB on the roster last year should never, ever have their football opinion be considered again. During his Texans career, he averaged 3.6 y/c, a number which would have ranked in the bottom nine in the NFL last year. Yet, Bill O’Brien saw fit to hand the ball off to Blue 673 times in his career. Ultimately, it’s really neither Griffin’s or Blue’s fault they were Texans’ versions of David Eckstein, players getting far too much action for their actual production. No, it’s because somehow someway, BOB kept using them. Kenneth: The best move? Yikes. There’s a ton of mediocrity out there to choose from, but the best thing we did was get rid of Kareem Jackson and Tyrann Mathieu. Although the fans loved them, they were terrible in coverage. The 28th ranked pass defense is purely not acceptable for a team with as high of hopes as the Texans have. The response and players added do not seem all too promising, but change was needed in the locker room. Leadership turns over, complacency cannot be tolerated, and a new competitive spark may be enough to get this secondary off the ground. Rivers McCown: OK, lemme answer with an actual move unlike the rest of these grumps. Signing Tashaun Gipson away from the release pool. Mathieu was not a good enough player to make $14 million a season. Gipson is, if not a perfect replacement, at least a good enough approximation of what Mathieu would bring. There are many holes the Texans left alone this offseason. Starting safety wasn’t one of them. Mike Bullock: I’m not sold on this, but have to say the best thing I’ve seen is the appearance of an effort to radically improve the offensive line. Houston spent two of their top three picks on linemen, and while the jury is out as to whether those two will be any good any time soon, at least the Texans didn’t draft a wide receiver and punter or some other combination of players that didn’t address an immediate need. Maybe I’m being a little homer-ish here, but part of me is starting to believe Tytus Howard might be a great pick. Might. Yeah, grasping at straws here... Diehard Chris: There are moves I like more, but since others have already hit them - I’ll go ahead and say I’m fully aboard the Kahale Warring hype train at tight end. The combo of Warring being drafted, the continued development of 2nd year TEs Jordan Akins and Jordan Thomas, and the release of Ryan Griffin make this position group very intriguing to me. My hope is the year-two Jordans have a chip on their shoulder about the Texans drafting yet another TE this year, and it will make that position group hotly-contested. With those three young, promising TEs and a (hopefully healthy) Keke Coutee in the slot and a (hopefully healthy) Will Fuller V flying around, I actually have hopes this offense can take a huge step forward even if the offensive line is only nominally better. Matt Weston: Franchise tagging Jadeveon Clowney and not trading him was the best move the Texans made. Now they just need to fall in love again and sign him to an extension. […]

  • Expectations For Deshaun Watson In 2019
    by Mike Bullock on May 23, 2019 at 5:00 pm

    If there’s a ceiling, we haven’t seen it yet. With players like Tom Brady, Eli Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, and Aaron Rodgers all nearing the end of their playing days, it’s time a new crop of superstar quarterbacks to move onto the main stage. Enter Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson. While Mahomes is a phenom in his own right, this is a Houston Texans blog, so he’s just getting a passing mention here. Let’s talk DW4. The Man. The Myth. The Legend. Well, not quite, but it’s coming. In 22 total games started, Deshaun has already passed for 5,864 yards, 45 touchdowns, and has a career passer rating of 103.1. And that was behind the worst offensive line in football (not just pro, but possibly even worse than several NCAA lines...maybe). Now, with a new quarterback coach, a newly improved (we hope!) offensive line, and a “new” offensive coordinator, 2019 is poised to be the year Watson becomes a household name and cements his place in the legends of pro football permanently. As the first quarterback to pass for at least 4,000 yards and 25 touchdowns while rushing for 500 yards and 5 touchdowns in a single season in NFL history, Watson already has pen in hand and is ripping open the NFL record books to write his name everywhere he can. All that was done behind the aforementioned bad offensive line, with an injury riddled wide receiver corps, a ‘work-in-progress’ tight end group and, yeah, a game or two with a collapsed lung. Bringing in a new quarterback coach should elevate Watson’s game even further, as he’s the type of player that takes knowledge from anywhere and everywhere, then uses it to elevate his game. Let’s take a look at what some others, including the man himself, are saying. Deshaun Watson: Carl, Tim and OB... They meet with me on things I’m trying to improve from last season and things we want to do this season. I can learn a lot from Carl with all of his experience. He’s got so much knowledge, all the coverages he’s seen, all the different quarterbacks he’s coached. He’ll help me work on my fundamentals. It’s well documented that Watson does nothing but win championships everywhere he’s ever been. Max Preps: Gainesville High can no longer be called the best football program in Georgia that’s never won a state championship. The Red Elephants have been playing football for more than 100 years and have won more than 700 games, but had never brought home the state title. Until now. Quarterback Deshaun Watson threw three touchdown passes and ran for two more scores as Gainesville overwhelmed Ware County 49-13 in the state’s Class AAAAA championship game on Friday at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. The Red Elephants (12-3) were making their seventh appearance in the final, the most of any team that had never won a title. The Ringer: When people tell tales about mythical heroes, they don’t say, “Well, he was pretty strong.” They describe the world’s most fearsome monsters — hydras, minotaurs, and dragons — and then rave about the guy who came along and slayed them. Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson became a legend Monday night, leading the Tigers to their first national title in 35 years with a 35–31 win over Alabama. He had 420 passing yards and three second-half touchdown throws, including the game-winner to wide receiver Hunter Renfrow with a second remaining. But to celebrate Watson, we must first talk about the beast that he beat: the Crimson Tide. So while we can lament the lack of splashy moves, big name free agent signings, and other fireworks many expected from the Houston Texans this offseason, let us not forget the biggest firework in the AFC South is loaded inside the helmet of #4, and it’s about to go off. Bleacher Report: The Houston Texans knew they had something special in quarterback Deshaun Watson early in his career. He had the look of a future franchise quarterback almost immediately, though a torn ACL cut his inaugural campaign short after just six starts. Watson returned to play all 16 games in 2018 and put together a Pro Bowl season. He amassed 4,165 passing yards, 551 rushing yards and 31 total touchdowns. He has an opportunity to be even more productive in 2019. Watson was sacked an alarming league-high 62 times last season. If Houston’s pass protection improves following the team’s offseason moves, the 23-year-old quarterback is going to be even more dangerous and entertaining. As long as Watson can stay upright and continue playing like he did last season, he’ll join fellow 2017 draft pick Mahomes as an elite-level signal-caller and one of the faces of the modern NFL. How high do you think Watson can go? Better than Warren Moon to become the best in H-Town history? Better than Peyton Manning to be the best in AFC South history? Better than Tom Brady? Let us know where you think the Houston football rocket that is DW4 lands in the comment section. […]

  • Jadeveon Clowney Update: Rumors About When He’ll Report To Texans
    by Matt Weston on May 23, 2019 at 2:00 pm

    This one is actually interesting. Certain news stories reach a point where you’ll believe any absurd twist or serpentine bend they may take. This story about Jadeveon Clowney is not one of those stories. This story is boring, exhausting, and needs to come to an end already. After the sides were unable to agree to terms on a contract extension, the Texans franchise-tagged Jadeveon Clowney for the 2019 season. Since then, things have cooled off and gotten constipated. Clowney will either (1) play under the franchise tag after sitting out training camp (the most likely scenario if the team doesn’t come to a long term agreement with him before camp starts), (2) get traded for a first round pick that won’t help the team this year and/or a player who can’t help the team as much as Clowney will, or (3) both sides come to an agreement that results Clowney getting extended and happy, participating in training camp, and feeling ready to make opposing offenses pay when the 2019 season begins. Former Houston Texan Cecil Shorts III (if she thinks Shorts III is a Texan and not a Jaguar, she’s too young for you), who probably has some inside information, made a report of his own. Sports Radio 610, where Shorts announced what he heard, posted the following: While OTAs are a voluntary program, sources close to Clowney told SportsRadio 610’s Cecil Shorts that if a deal isn’t reached by the July 15 deadline, the Pro Bowl edge rusher is prepared to sit out until Week 1. ”We should not expect him until September,” said former Houston Texans wide receiver, Cecil Shorts.”That would be Week 1 of the regular season.” “[The Texans] are offering him a long-term deal, from what I am hearing, it’s linebacker type money and [Clowney] wants a long-term deal with defensive end type of contract,” Cecil Shorts said. “That’s the biggest difference between the two sides, right now, is linebacker money and defensive end money. What does he think he should get and what are they offering.” Clowney is in the right on this one. He’s a defensive end, not an outside linebacker, and really he can just be classified as an EDGE. If the Texans want to keep him around long term, haggling over $2-$4 million per year really doesn’t seem like it makes much sense. Hopefully this all gets resolved soon, especially since Clowney was rusted and invisible until Week Four last season after missing all of training camp due to his recovery from offseason knee surgery. With the Texans’ upcoming schedule, they’ll need Clowney to contribute right away. […]
