    I think we did the best we could at upgrading WR without giving up picks and I think our GM did good just upgrading the depth on this team and build potential starters through the draft.

    Give me a break. We have done everything we need to do we are ready to go 13-3 at least.

    I'm surprised we got that much of a write up in the middle of Cowgirls country. Typical, generic article probably taken from espn. I guess Ryans didn't lead the D after all...OK...after actually READING the article, it's a lot better than I thought from the blurb. I hate it when I make snap judgements from only a small sampling of the available information. I wonder if espn is hiring....

    When you see this...

    By KRISTIE RIEKEN
    Associated Press

    ... it means it's wire copy, that is, basically any newspaper in the country has access to it, and the only decision made by the editor is whether to run it or not. Small town newspapers rely on AP wire copy because they can't afford large staffs. The Chronicle relies on it because their sports department is lazy.

    For a frame of reference, that particular article by Kristie (AP sports writer assigned to the Texans) appeared in the B-CS Eagle, the Victoria Advocate http://www.thevictoriaadvocate.com/195/story/93444.html, the New York Times (appeared on Sunday under the headline, "New Blood GIves the Downtrodden Texans a Few Reasons to Hope") and many others.

    Sometimes her name appears with the article and sometimes it doesn't. Whenever you see an article about the Texans and the source is AP, it was written by Rieken.

    Is she the same person as Megan Manfull? I saw Manfull's Texans season preview in two different national mags. Let's face it - there aren't a lot of journalists covering the Texans.
