    The hypocrisy is the media gloats over Patriots. I’m not defending either way, but media is whining because they aren’t getting spoon fed information after shitting on them all off-season? What did they expect

    Geez is there any group of people more whiny, entitled, and sanctimonious than sports writers? Cross them once and they'll turn on a franchise in an instant.

    Cal better watch out, the Texans will be the new target the media sees as an enemy and become obsessed with smearing, just like the Astros.

    Pancakes McClain is just mad because now he has to put in 1% effort instead of the -1000% he usually graces us with.

    I was listening to the Audicy app while working here in Nashville today and that had me laughing so much. I like the early morning 6-10am time slot , and the 2-5pm time slot with Clint Stoerner ...can’t stand the negative whiners like John Lopez tho

    Is that just an educated guess?

    I would love to see video of McClain attempting to bend over and pick something up off the ground.

    Have you ever seen an obese walrus trying to mate? It’s very similar to that

    On TV. I've seen elephant seals live. I can imagine the similarities.

    Looks like it worked because they apparently put out the roster numbers the day. Guessing it wasn’t a strategic plan since they abandoned it almost immediately so wondering what was the original point.

    Not sure. I get wanting to create competition and get a good perspective from practice tape without the names swaying your opinion.
    Not saying that’s what they were doing, but as a coach and a new coach to the team. I could see that.

    The early betting lines on Houston Texans games show them to be every bit the expansion team they are. The lines set by Westgate Las Vegas for the 17 regular-season games of the Texans show the wise guys think Houston could go 0-17. Game-by-game:

    September: Jacksonville by 3 over Houston, Cleveland by 13.5, Carolina by 4.
    October: Buffalo by 14, New England by 6, Indianapolis by 11.5, Arizona by 10.5, L.A. Rams by 8.5.
    November: Miami by 7.5, Tennessee by 8.5, N.Y. Jets by 1.
    December: Indianapolis by 7, Seattle by 7, Jacksonville by 4, L.A. Chargers by 4.5.
    January: San Francisco by 13.5, Tennessee by 6.
    Average line: Foes by 7.8 points per game over Houston.

    Lines can change and certainly will change as the season goes on. But imagine the precipitous drop your team has taken if, in the span of one short offseason, you’re posted as the underdog twice to a 1-15 team.

    Quite a comedown for a team that has won the AFC South in four of the last six years. Reminds me of that classic NFL Films line by the former Houston Oilers head coach, Jerry Glanville, when he said to an official he thought had just blown a call: “You know what NFL stands for? Not For Long, if you keep making calls like that.” This is probably the most precipitous drop in recent memory by a franchise to rock-bottomville.
