Default Chris Mortensen piece on the Texans

In case some missed it. Nothing really earth shaking.

Default Re: Chris Mortensen piece on the Texans

I absolutely cannot stand that they aren't allowed to show video footage of NFL football and have to resort to pictures. It was a little dry for my taste and there wasn't any analysis as much as it was just straight fact reporting. These are the guys they have, here's what's going on, end.

Oh well. Lots of media on the Texans lately, which I like.

That piece was exactly that: A piece.

No, we didn't want to see footage of them practicing. Let's watch photos and listen to voice-overs. Let's sit in the air-conditioned ESPN bus and talk coach speak for 5 minutes.

If you haven't viewed the video, don't bother wasting your time with it. Not slamming the original poster in this thread, just sayin' that us fans deserve more than what ESPN trots out. ESPN and EA Madden football must be cousins, because you get two drops of water in the desert with them.

Thanks, Mort. You really dazzled us with the in-depth coverage.

There is something fantastically sucky about the Saints, last year's champs, having the 6th-easiest schedule THIS season.

LOL.

Yeah, what TB said. McNair's cheap, Kubiak is a POS, Rick Smith can't draft...

The only difference in the schedule is that the Colts play at New England and are home against the Bengals. Houston has to go to the Jets and host the Ravens. Other than that they play the same opponents. Does that really seem like an easier task for Houston?

Crap... I'm worried about the Texans wanting to run the ball this season... that seems to be a big hurdle to get over is the running game. We have all seen it and we know what happened in the past with thes multiple attempts to run the ball and get no where fast. Yes, they have improved a bit last year, I just hope they continue to improve, otherwise we will not see playoffs this season.
