Default Houston Texans 2017

Lots of anticipation this year with the club and this regime finally going all in on a qb. I really think they got their guy. I didn't see a new Texans thread for this upcoming year and with rookie minicamp about to start, it's hard to not be excited.

Word on the street is deshaun has spent the last week 2-3 hours a day learning the offense and going over installs with TJ Yates. Just promising to see he is the all in type of guy we want in that spot.

I know everyone is worried about the line but I think we will be ok. They will make it work. We get nick Martin back and manzc was more than solid last year.

Pretty good write up about how smith and obrien have adapted to each other. Everyone is always so anti smith but I personally think he has built an impressive team

I'm on the bubble regarding this season. I like Watson at QB, but that will depend on how he matures and learns from now till opening day. I am excited to see our defense with Watt back combined with Clowney, Mercillus, and Cushing. If those guys play like last year and Watt is back to 100% then we should have a top 3 if not number 1 defense in the league.

Opposing offensive coordinators are definitely going to have their hands full!

Astros will have more double digit scores than the Texans will.
Cant throw passes from your back.

the o-line may not need to protect f0 30 seconds per snap now...

Their Oline isn't as bad as people make it out to be... and it was riddled with injuries.

My point...when we ran a 2 minute offence..the "QB"9lol0 didn't have time to think..just run the play and did ok..but when he had to think..the O-Line had to try and hold for 2+ times longer than most all the other teams...

The schedule is very different from last year, they probably have one of the toughest schedules in the league. it will not be the most conducive situation for getting a rookie qb snaps but i've never bought into bringing a Pro along slowly. he has lots of time to learn the system and now it's just a matter of learning the speed of the game. I think if we win 8 games it will be a good season, if they win more it will be because the defense wins one or two for them.

I don't think you'll see DW start a game in 2017 unless Savage gets hurt (likely) or has multiple, multi-interception games.

I think Savage is going to have incredible season. Watson won't sniff the field, barring injury that is.

I hope so. Then we flip him for a first or second in next years draft. Would be my dream scenario.

Get back with me after they have proved it on the field and not on paper.

With their defense, they should handle their division pretty easily. Making it out of the first round of the playoffs? Now that is where it starts getting questionable.

It will be a good season for the Texans....too early to speculate but we would have been better last year with Savage all season....not likely to do worse this year as the defense is intact for the most part.
