As many of you know, most nights between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. CDT, I take to BRB's Twitter account to pose a question related to your Houston Texans. This exercise is dubbed #TTTQ for "Tonight's Texans Twitter Query." Last night was no different; this was the question:
Will Benardrick McKinney overtake Brian Cushing as the #Texans' best ILB this year? #TTTQ— battleredblog (@battleredblog) July 12, 2016
Sometimes, I'm flooded with answers (which I almost always retweet); other times, I barely get any. Sometimes, the answers heavily lean in one direction, while other nights see tons of different answers. Here are the first few responses I received last night:
@battleredblog Cushing will still be productive but BMK is the future. It's his time.— Chris Jackson (@ChrisCJackson) July 12, 2016
Hasn't he already? https://t.co/GdO1qKkG3y— Harvill, Logan (@Mrharvill) July 12, 2016
@battleredblog sure hope so. As good as Cush was last year that means Texans would have 2 stud ilb.— hunter sonnier (@h_b_son) July 12, 2016
Fair amount of love for Benardrick McKinney, right? Some respondents took the other side, arguing that Brian Cushing was still king of the mountain.
@battleredblog No, but he's going to be the man in the middle post Cush— Skrimp And Steak (@SteakAndSkrimp) July 12, 2016

Pay attention to the account that last tweet came from. That's right. Brian Cushing chimed in on #TTTQ. At that point, what else could I do?
Tough to imagine a more qualified respondent for #TTTQ. Probably a good time to call it a night. #Texans https://t.co/Jxi4F8Drco— battleredblog (@battleredblog) July 12, 2016
As you'd expect, Texans fans loved Cushing's reply.
