So You Think You Can Blog? (Alternate Title: "Battle Red Idol")

As I alluded here, I've been contemplating adding another contributing writer here at BRB.  Scott has authored a whopping nine (9) posts since the beginning of the 2007 season, which is due in large part to either (1) him having an abundance of work and family activities requiring his attention and/or (2) me not drinking enough Zima.  Regardless of the reason, I need help.

I've said on numerous occasions that the thing that makes BRB what it is is the community interaction.  Thus, I'd prefer to have a user from the Good Ship BRB become a regular author.  That may not work out, but it's what I hope happens.  To that end, if you're interested in writing for BRB, please draft a post on anything Texans-related and e-mail it to me at  It can be on who you think the Texans should draft.  It can be an analysis of the Casserly regime.  It can be an ode to Super Mario.  Really, it can be anything, as long as it's original and centers on your Houston Texans.  More power to you if it's some sort of statistical breakdown; admittedly, that's not my strong suit, so I'd love to have a bit more of that on the site.  But no points will be deducted if it's devoid of numbers or data; after all, most of what I write is simply ranting anyway.

Before you start writing what I'm sure will be the most insightful thing I've ever read about some aspect of the Texans, a few requirements of the gig should be discussed:

  1.  You don't get paid for writing here.  In the future, there may be some advertising revenue associated with the gig; I'd be glad to talk about that in far greater detail via e-mail if you like.  But understand that for the immediate future, BRB is purely pro bono.
  2.  Keep the profanity to a minimum.  I understand that there will be times when it's necessary (e.g., my love note to Albert Haynesworth), but I am adamant that we do our best to keep this site off the workplace-ban list.
  3.  Although there's no hard and fast rule for the number of posts you'd have to author each week, I would like to see the co-blogger commit to putting up between four (4) and seven (7) pieces per week.  I realize that there will be lulls, but there will also be days when there's a ton to talk about; thus, I think it'll even out.  But if you submit an entry to me, please do so with the knowledge that you'd be on the hook for 4-7 posts each week.
I'm probably forgetting a thing or two, but that's all I can think of right now.  I hope several of you are interested, and I eagerly await your submissions to  Ideally, I'd like to have someone up and writing here by April 1st, so let's say that all entries should be in by March 26th.  I look forward to reading anything and everything anyone submits.  Happy blogging.
