    I'm glad ESPN is (once again) paying close attention to the Texans.

    I was expecting "Scouts take" to come from an actual scout.

  7. Tell me that he doesn't mean Offensive Center (OC) in this quote:
    That dude is horrible, somebody needs to send his bosses a message on this crap. That is inexcuseable.

    We need to have a "Who can find the most errors in the ESPN Texans Preview" contest. 2nd place gets a years subscription to ESPN the Magazine. 1st place doesn't get a years subscription to ESPN the Magazine.

    No one would play at the risk of coming in second place.

    I can't believe they didn't mention our backup QB Kent Graham, and that we were expecting another great year from Aaron Glenn.

    I wish ESPN wasn't as scared of fans as they are, a lot of Fox Sports people put their email addresses out there so you can respond to what they say (and they will write back). ESPN gives you their email address, but rarely do they mention anything critical of them. ESPN's new marketing slogan "ESPN "The Hoover of Sports" translation "WE SUCK"

    Ryans is undersized and will have trouble stoping the run if I recall they said the same thing about Zach Thomas and he plays pretty good:sarcasm:. Why is it every year there is a LB that is undersize and wont relate to the nfl. I know someone send this to Ryans so he can use it to destory little miss Payton.

    Next they will be congratulating us on picking Reggie Bush, and wishing us luck in LA after our owner, Bud Adams, moves us there next year.

    I think it is more that they let their C writers write our preview. Still, that is rediculous that those people even have a job at ESPN. Michael Smith is ok, he atleast has the facts.

    Most profound statement in the article:

    -10 - Poor David Carr. The Texans' offensive line went through a league-high 10 lineup changes in 2005 -- 12 counting a new O-coordinator and new line coach -- which is one reason Houston allowed 68 sacks and finished 30th in offense.
