Welcome to Week 4 of Houston Texans football. Three weeks of perturbation and despair have sped past us, leaving us only with vague questions of ‘‘Who’s the best player in the 2019 NFL Draft?’’ and ‘‘Is Jadeveon Clowney REALLY going to be worth all that money?’’.
I would be remiss to not remind you that this game marks the end of the first quarter of the Texans’ regular season slate. While they may be statistically unlikely to make the playoffs, there is always the faintest glimmer of hope that Deshaun Watson and J.J. Watt carry this team to something more than their current form would suggest.
It’s time for your first quarter thread. The opponent is the Colts, who have a QB who almost certainly does NOT have a partially functioning throwing shoulder and the second worst bald spot of any of the AFC South starting QBs.
The comments are yours to react to all the action that happens in the first quarter.
NOTE: Please do not post any images, videos, GIFs, or non-text comments in any of BRB’s live game threads. They tend to slow the thread down and can take a long time to load. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
NOTE II: Due to the fast-paced nature of these threads, there will be no warnings before bans on game day. 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. If you’re on the wrong side of the law today and want your posting privileges reinstated, please send an e-mail to one of us tomorrow.
NOTE III: Please refrain from any reference to or mention of any religion or religious figure, even if you believe it’s celebratory or inoffensive. If you make such a reference or comment, it will be deleted and you will be warned. Two violations of this rule will result in a ban.
