The whistle has been in a drawer for too long. The cobwebs needed to be vacuumed from the bucket hat. The sun has finally escaped the clouds. Football needs to be back so David Culley can do what he loves, coach a football team.
The Houston Texans hit the practice field this past weekend. Veterans had been in the building for a month now, pushing plates and listening to loud music. And now, the rookies were able to hit the practice field to show off what Nick Caserio just acquired, and the coaches could finally coach.
After practice on Saturday, David Culley answered questions from the media. You can watch the entire press conference below.
Rivers McCown has the highlights if you don’t have 15 minutes to be illuminated by David Culley.
Culley has nothing to say about the Deshaun Watson situation:
David Culley on if he expect Deshaun Watson to report: "We have nothing to say about that situation at this time. Cal and ownership a few weeks back indicated about how our organization feels about the situation ... I have nothing to say about that at this time." pic.twitter.com/EzfACI3SzT— Rivers McCown (@riversmccown) May 15, 2021
Davis Mills was brought in to compete this season, and this season isn’t a tryout to see if he could possibly be a franchise quarterback:
David Culley on how important a good look at Davis Mills this season is: "We're not looking at it like that ... we're looking at it like there's going to be competition at all positions ... players that give us the best chance to win, we're going to put on the football field." pic.twitter.com/UKLt8lE3cA— Rivers McCown (@riversmccown) May 15, 2021
Just how badly the coaches want to coach:
"We were more excited than those players were today to get out on the football field, just to coach em" is an interesting motivationalbrain turn of phrase. pic.twitter.com/3ESSUOuVTO— Rivers McCown (@riversmccown) May 15, 2021
And, most importantly, his love of nachos.

Organized Team Activities begin on May 24th, and will run until June 11th. The mandatory minicamp takes place from June 15th-17th. I’m sure Culley will have more to say later this month, and in the middle of next month. Even if the 2021 Houston Texans probably won’t be riveting or exciting, that doesn’t mean David Culley’s press conferences aren’t.
