Texans Down 'N Dirty: Back To School Edition

Well, summer vacation is definitely over, as evidenced by every single Chronicle writer coming out of the woodwork to write obscure posts about the Texans.  A little harsh to say obscure?  Well, John McClain literally asked 43 different questions but gave no answers, Richard Justice declared whether the Texans will have a winning season or not will be determined by little more than luck, and Jerome Solomon thinks the Texans are better because they're tough.  At least Solomon had mostly positive things to say.  I'll take that as a step in the right direction.

Dan Orlovsky gave an interview to the official site in which he had some interesting things to say.  I think his attitude toward being a backup quarterback is much better than Sage Rosenfels was; for instance, when asked about the signing of Rex Grossman, Orlovsky replied:

"This is no disrespect to Rex, but if I'm worried aboout Rex, then I'm worried about the wrong person.  My goal is to beat out Matt."

Now before you freak out, he went on to say the following:

"And that's not to say that I am here for that mindset, but my goal is to be the best that I can be.  And I have to go and try to beat Matt out and become the starter to have that happen.  I know what my role is supposed to be..."

I think that Orlovsky is a smart guy, and he gets it.  Sage hurts us a lot last year by pushing the envelope when he didn't have to because he was auditioning.  I don't think we'll have that problem with Orlovsky, and hopefully we don't see him on the field much this year, if at all.

Finally, James Casey e-mailed DieHard Chris to share his reaction to signing his contract.  Now all we need is for Brian Cushing and Connor Barwin to sign and we're good.  Chris also just hit his two-year anniversary, so drop him a note and tell him congrats.
