The offseason has mercifully ended. Your Houston Texans are about to play football that counts.
Once again, we somehow made it through the winter, spring, and summer to get here. This year, we even survived a freaking hurricane, though we have several months, and perhaps longer, to rebound from that. Should you be feeling particularly charitable at the moment, I'd remind you that we here at BRB are doing what we can to help the family of one of our own, and any assistance you could provide in that regard would be much appreciated.
This is your first open thread for the Texans' 2017 regular season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Share your observations, thoughts, and musings about all things Houston, Texan, and/or Jaguar in real time in the Comments below.
Enjoy the game.

If a moderator deems a comment or user to be problematic, he or she will remove that person from the discussion for the good of the collective game day experience.
