Smoked Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings w/ Sriracha Mayo Dipping Sauce


I just ran across this rather good-looking recipe, and haven't yet tried it out to see if they are really as Freaking Incredible as they look. Perhaps one of you BRB GrillMasters could take on the challenge and let us all know? En Garde and Bon Appetite

Ed Werder: Teams expect Texans to trade down... maybe Atlanta


I've no time to make a post about it, but feel free to discuss. Who'd be there for the Texans at pick #6? What other picks might they get?

Houston Sports Personified


J.J. Watt tweeted this picture out yesterday. If you were born within the last 10 years, you might not know that he's standing next to Houston Rockets legend Hakeem Olajuwon.
He's the man that helped pull the city from the black hole created by the 92-93 Oilers choking away a massive lead against the Buffalo Bills.
Such courtside greatness wasn't enough for the Rockets, though, as they lost last night against the Portland Trail Blazers in an overtime thriller.

Defending Bridgewater: "Turn on the tape"


"What’s being said in the media is not necessarily being said in draft rooms by people who are being paid to be in the know and who need to do their due diligence and homework," says Texas assistant Shawn Watson, who served as Bridgewater’s quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator at Louisville. "I just know in the end, he has all the traits for a can’t-miss player.
"I’ve seen his accuracy. I’ve seen his competitiveness, his decision making. I’ve seen how he’s been such a great student, learning how to enhance his game, to use his eyes as a weapon, develop his feet, develop his pocket awareness, learn to be a full-field read guy, take us to the line of scrimmage and put us in the right play or spin our protection to pick up the blitz."

I found this comment while thumbing through the BRB archives the other day. Mr. b0wse pretty much nailed what the 2013 season and 2014 offseason had in store for us.

This team did indeed "need a reboot."

Sweet Houston Texans Rocks Glasses


The lady got me these as a gift, and I thought I'd share. I'm thinking there's a strong bourbon-drinker/Texans fan demographic here on Battle Red Blog.
