    I scan five or ten NFL pages every day and I see lots of news about other teams doing all manner of things--trading, thinking of trading, cutting, signing, talking to, planning, etc. Seems like lots of teams are VERY active in one way or another.

    But I rarely, almost never, see anything reported about the Texans. SO I wonder if the Texans are doing nothing (which seems sort of characteristic of recent seasons) or if the sports media just doesn't give a care about the Texans.

    Or if BOB is just an extraordinary coach a singularly gifted teacher and is profoundly stealthy to boot.

    Or, well, the hands thing.

    The Texans made a bunch of coaching staff additions. Dafukk you talking about? Free agency hasn’t even started either.

    They've been busy with meetings at the combine from what I have seen as well.

    They did?

    Anyway, the Texans don't talk much and it's WAY early. They are rumored to be heavy in the hunt for OT Brown and considering several others. About the only real hard news that will come out right now is re-signing their own FAs.

    Early next week they have to tag Clowney, mid March free agency begins. Texans are not west or east coast and we have never done anything so noone cares unless we make a splash. I hope we are working our own Free Agents aggressively. Seems we want HB not Kareem. Couple of weeks if no news, then let's get in their crap

    I expect they will be moderatly active in free agency, just not right off the bat. Their modus operandi is to sit back the first couple of days until the feeding frenzy ends then jump in.

    Things are changing down on Kirby.

    According to Walter they are going to make a big offer to Trent Brown. The combine is where GM's and agents start talking parameters on FA contracts.

    Water is good for you

    Walter gives you viruses.

    Edited for accuracy

    I'm surprised I haven't mistyped a few curse words throughout the yrs.

    Let them sit on their hands for now if that's what they want to do.

    Better they pick crap now than when it comes to FA and Draft time.

    ?

    I'm not following what you're saying.

    Right now they are exchanging numbers with FA's agents and interviewing guys at the combine. What else do you think they should be doing?

    Atleast BOB didn't choose to have an elective surgery during the combine and miss the thing.
