STEEL BLUE TEXANS

After six games or so I had not seen the Texans at all and I was burning with curiosity about Ryans, who was running up huge tackle and assist numbers. So I asked the club if they could send me a few defensive reels and they obliged with three, and it sure was fun ... no, not grading him, just watching him in action. A rookie, who played like a rookie, but with a really high-powered engine. He'd swallow just about every fake, and they threw lots of them at him, but he was so blazingly fast that he could recover and make a tackle, even across the field. Toward the end of the season, he was more sound. Not at all-pro level yet, but when he gets the hang of the game ... watch out.
