    This is what some of the doofs in the comments section had to say, so I popped off a reply to their genius conversation:

    I can't believe how long the author managed to make this article.

    Yeah, your one sentence posts are so engaging. I agree. Who needs to hear something in-depth and (gasp!) loooooong when there's so much other stuff for you guys to read and then $@%!$ about on here. LOL. Wow. #shakeweightmotion

    I just tagged 300+ rep points onto the OP.

    Everyone needs to rep him. Nice articles, and he brought them all under one thread. Nicely done.

    Gave me a nice little lift to my Wednesday.

    My only quibble with the Schaub piece is about how "drama free" the Texans always are. Um, let's not forget that Brian Cushing embarrassed this entire town and franchise a couple of years ago after being busted for 'roids, and then our owner made it even MORE embarrassing by appealing Cushing had some kind of absurd medical condition.

    It was for hcg not steroids.

    I wasn't embarrassed.

    One incident in 10.5 seasons means the Texans are typical. The Bengals have had 10+ incidents within the last few months. Marcus Coleman is the last Texan I can remember getting correctly arrested after he drove after drinking with Jamie Sharper. The names should tell you how long ago that was.

    I was. I'm not now; I'm over it. But that whole situation with McNair trying to push "overtrained athletes syndrome" was embarrassing.

    I agree. The Bengals are a mess. As are the Lions. I just thought the whole thing was embarrassing, and glad it's over. Again: that's just my opinion.

    Thanks for posting these!

    I just finished reading these three articles and I have to say they were extremely nice. Getting some extra love from the media is great when your team is doing good but these articles were fantastic. I hope to see more articles like this on our Texans players and hopefully coaches.

    From the Schaub article linked above:
