I found this comment while thumbing through the BRB archives the other day. Mr. b0wse pretty much nailed what the 2013 season and 2014 offseason had in store for us.

This team did indeed "need a reboot."

Sweet Houston Texans Rocks Glasses


The lady got me these as a gift, and I thought I'd share. I'm thinking there's a strong bourbon-drinker/Texans fan demographic here on Battle Red Blog.

Check them out on Amazon.

The look on Bill O'Brien's face reminds me of Homer Simpson yelling out "Boring!" (video)

Andre Johnson's Career Yardage - A Pie Chart Perspective


This week in unnecessary pie charts, we take a look at Andre Johnson's career receiving numbers compared to those of the next nine WRs that have played for the Houston Texans.

Like a Thanksgiving plate dominated by an oversized turkey leg, the chart above is hilariously unbalanced. We're all painfully familiar with the precipitous drop in quality after Andre, but it's staggering to see him account for as many yards by himself as almost everyone else on the list.

Hopefully we'll see DeAndre Hopkins distinguish himself from the pack of near-anonymous receivers accompanying him here. Click here for the full picture.

Meet The Bobs

"We find it's always better to fire people on a Friday. Studies have statistically shown that there's less chance of an incident if you do it at the end of the week."

Texans are now following Johnny Manziel on Twitter


I am not sure if it means anything but the Houston Texans are now following Johnny Manziel on Twitter. I don't think they are following any other players in this years draft, including Bridgewater or Clowney. Maybe I am reading too much into it but this has to be a good thing for people who want the Texans to take Manziel. Here is a link to the article:

Looking For Someone To Cheer For In The Olympics?


Found this via the Houston Texans Instagram page,

Jonathan Garcia is a speed skater representing the US of A in the Sochi Olympics. He's also a Houston product and an apparent Texans fan.

He's competing in the 1000m today. Good luck, buddy. Read more about Johnathan here.

Cole: 2011 First Rounders In For A Rude Awakening


The National Football Post ran an interesting article from Jason Cole the other day about why J.J. Watt and the other members of such a great draft class are going to get screwed when it comes to contract extensions. It's really worth a read. A storm is brewing.

"In the case of Watt, who is due to make just over $1.9 million this season, if his fifth-year option is $6 million and the franchise tag is $12 million for him in 2016, the Texans essentially have him under contract for three more years at only $20 million. On the open market, Watt might be worth double that."

Watt Looks Mad After Pro Bowl Loss


Found this picture via Marc Vandermeer's Twitter.

With only pride at stake, Watt predictably gave his all, and you just know this loss stings as much as any other. For those keeping up at home, that's 15 losses in a row for Watt (and Duane Brown, too.)

Watt finished the game with a sack and a SWATT plus numerous QB hits and pressures.
