Didn't see this anywhere else:

The Article (http://fifthdown.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/08/21/2011-houston-texans-season-preview/)

There's some interesting stuff in there. Nothing we haven't talked about on this board. Just good to hear it from someone else.

That was a dang good read by a reporter that seemingly really knows his football. He pretty much nailed the Texans, good and bad, and was very honest and unbiased in his opinions. Personally, I think he's mostly wrong about Schaub. All he needs are W's to be considered elite.

Some of his takes seem very jaded and he does mention he has been burned by us before (who in the media hasn't). A lot of the criticism is fair but I thought his take on our offensive line was off and I think Schaub is better than he gives him credit for. Also, assuming Vickers beats out Casey looks dumb 2 games into the preseason.
