Okay...don’t panic, don’t panic, stay calm, stay calm. This is not a dream, this is really happening. We really might have struck football gold here. We might have a new and really great franchise quarterback that we’ve been missing since Matt Schaub AND NOBODY ELSE AFTER HIM.
We might have not one but two young inexpensive weapons at wideout and a young running back who hates everybody.
We might have a functioning offensive line and competent coaching and an opportunistic defense. We might have struck the mother[kitten]ing motherlode.
Gotta get a hold of myself.
There’s still a chance that this is just a good streak and don’t think it might not be fool’s gold?
Maybe. But I look forward to finding out.
Sorry. I’m rambling.
The Houston Texans hit the road again, this time on a five week tour of the NFC South. That tour starts in the Empire State of the South as the Texans take on the Atlanta Falcons. This game will see the Texans at the healthiest they’ve been since the season began, including the returns of Laremy Tunsil and Tytus Howard.
Let’s see who gets to find out if this team really is for really real. Time for the big board, brought to you by 506 Sports.
