2016 Houston Texans Training Camp Live: Day Seven

New, comments

A week in, and the Houston Texans look ready to fire live rounds. Follow the action live on Battle Red Blog.

Sunday really is the best day of the week. The only viable knock on it is simply due to guilt by association, in that Sunday precedes the worst day of the week, Monday.

While this particular Sunday isn’t as good as say, the Super Bowl Sunday when the Texans finally win it all, the fact that we have Houston Texans Training Camp makes it far superior to the average Sunday filled with golf and re-runs of thirty year old NASCAR races.

To that end, let’s recap what we’ve learned so far from Training Camp 2016.

DeAndre Hopkins staged what may very well be the shortest holdout in NFL history by a star player last Sunday. Thankfully for us, he returned the very next day and went right back to showing why he deserves a contract befitting of an elite wide receiver.

Brock Osweiler is not only the new leader of the offense, but the entire team.

The special teams unit has had a major influx of talent and attention.

Will Fuller has some wheels on him and he’s not afraid to use them.

And thousands of fans have no problem standing around in the blazing, hellish Texas summer heat just to catch a glimpse of their favorite players.

While optimism is very high right now, as it is every year, there are still some holes this teams needs to fill in order to be considered a favorite to bring home the proverbial pigskin bacon next February.

With that in mind, I thought I’d open up a poll to see what position you think the Texans need to address in the near future. Once you’ve cast your vote, please leave a comment explaining why you chose what you did.

In the meantime, don’t forget the excellent Twitter feed rolling down below for those who want that virtual training camp experience without all the sweat, sunburn and heat stroke of the real thing.
