    Hopefully he can find another guy or two like Butler once we sign him.

    I'm cool with Butler, but not at "highest paid CB" type money. He's not as good as Bouye.

    If the Texans don't break the bank on a CB, I could see them going after a guy like Prince Amukamara. Solid high character vet who could be had for a 1 or 2 year deal.

    Annual reminder...


    Ignore Virtually All Offseason NFL Strength of Schedule Information

    Sharp Football
    Measuring future strength of schedule by incorporating prior year win rate is lazy, inaccurate and inefficient. But like most things in the NFL, because it has been an accepted method from years past, there is a strong reluctance to shift from this process. You don’t need any math at all to understand this method must be flawed. In the case of 2018 strength of schedule, the traditional method of calculation looks at 2017 W/L of teams to predict 2018 strength of schedule. Seems nonsensical, particularly when you consider the small sample and high variance in a 16-game season. By looking at W/L rate, we intentionally avoid increasing the sample size by rejecting the use of efficiency metrics or average performance on a per play basis. We’re ignoring play-level data that could help smooth out performance and instead, we’re pulling just one, single number from each game: did the team win the game? A win or a loss.

    I can tell you it’s pure nonsense, but for the dinosaur generation hung up on accepted behavior, I’ll use math to prove that it’s nonsense...​

    I'd assume because of our coaches (BOB, Romeo, Welker, etc.) and some former players (Hoyer, Mallet, etc.) prior connections to Pats, we're considered a spot for former Pats to coach and play. Essentially, former Pats probably more easily can blend into our system now, because it was derived from theirs.

    Kyle Fuller(CB Chicago) is reportedly not coming back to da bears. DB FA class should be big focus of Texans

    As usual our end season result was mediocre, we found our franchise qb, but we seem to have no oline or competent db. Bleak as it may look at least we aren't the browns.

    Browns will turn it around, now that they have qualified football people in the front office with enough gravitas to muzzle the homeless guy.

    If the Texans can get the defense back to top 5 ranking, they will be Superbowl bound.
