Here is a tidbit:Kubiak is in command here. This Texans operation is smooth and fast-moving. The practice I was at was over in 105 minutes. At one point, Kubiak said to rookie quarterback Case Keenum, "Everything you do, do it a little quicker." That message seemed to be received by the whole team. And at two different points in practice, Kubiak called the whole team in -- like a coach would at the end of practice -- just to explain what they were going to try and accomplish in the next period. He addressed them again when the session was over. The point seems to be to make communication clear, to make every play and portion of practice count, and not waste anyone's time. Pretty interesting to watch, especially with a veteran team that's very clearly in win-now mode carrying Kubiak's plans out.

"We're salty out there." Last year, the Texans skyrocketed from 30th to second in total defense. This year, it looks like they're starting to play the part of a group that knows it's elite.

That's the part I liked.
