Touché K dog, touché...
This is one of the great unsolved mysteries of TexansTalk.
Does steelb have a stenograph? Does he think everyone has one? Does he regularly tell people to read articles he's never read?
We may never know.
Is stenograph like a sonogram?
Tell you something about SteelB - anyman who drinks beer with his dog is OK by me.
I dunno wonder what his drinking buddys breed is ? I've got a schnauzer so surely he'd like beer.
So my mind said read instead of listen to and you make a big deal out of this. Did you listen?
I have 3 dogs 2 of them drink craft beer with me.
A Lab/Pit mix- Boy
A Lab- Girl
The Great Pyrenees doesn't really like beer although she will drink some.
The other 2 lap it up like water.
#2 looks very very smart, I like a girl with big brains....
I prefer Meghan myself

Bold predictions for all 32 nfl teams
From the article:
Well I don't know, can't he?
Pretty pissed off.
I have two dogs that will drink with me (my profile pic)...
A Lab/Pit mix - Bailey
Great Dane - Gypsy
Bailey is the bigger drinker of the two. Loves it. Gypsy is more of just a social drinker.
our defense was above average when playing the likes of Case Keenum, Dak Prescott, Josh Allen/ Nathan Peterman, Blake Bortles, and Brock Osweiler. Luck wiped the floor with them 3 times, allowed 400+ yards and 4 TDs to Nick Foles, got torched by Eli Manning somehow, made Jets fans actually start believing in Darnold again, and after a stellar 1st half against Mayfield made him look great in the 2nd half. Our defense feasted off of turnovers this year which is a stat the usually isn't replicated year to year. Our defense was good against the run, but ranked among the bottom against the pass. We got lucky we faced a slew of teams with weak QBs who couldn't expose our defenses biggest weakness, but yea lets ignore that because on paper they seem fine.....
Our offense ranked 11th in PPG, above average not really in the sucky category
Ah but you're forgetting the most important stat that tips the balance. Offense was coached by Bill O'Brien and the defense wasn't. Against that fact no mere numbers matter.
Three of those top ten defenses from the AFCSouth
Yes, all defenses will do worse against good offenses. The question is were the Texans unsually worse? I'd like to see more data on how other good defenses did against these teams. After all, the NFL had an offensive explosion this year. Football Outsiders does adjust for opponent strength and ranked the Texans D 7th, not as high as PFF.
Also, the defense scored several points and also gave the Texans favorable field position all season (#1 starting position according to football outsiders). There were also overtime points scored.
From estimated offensive points scored, they ranked 15th.
Offensive TDs per game they ranked 20th.
Red zone TD scoring percentage they were 29th.
They were, however, 2nd in field goals made per game, but as noted above the defense consistently put the offense in good starting field position.
Curious if anyone knows the financial implications for the team after Bob Mcnair's passing? I understand that his wife Janice now owns the team and Cal is in charge of daily operations but does anyone know what happens when Janice passes? There's 4 kids, will Cal be the new owner? Is the inheritance split 4 ways? If so, and Cal inherits the team, it seems likely that the team would make up the majority of his inheritance and not leave a lot of liquid funds available to run the team. Is $ set aside in a trust for the operation of the team?
I'd guess it would depend on how well the kids get along. If they get along well what I would say is they leave the operations to a Cal and he just cuts them a check every year for their part. That's how my mother in law's family handles their farm. Her brother works it and takes out operation cost and his portion then the rest is spilt among the other 3. If they don't get along then Cal might just offer to buy them out and become the sole owner.
All this is assuming that there isn't a will laying out exact instructions and if there is and somebody was saying what's in it they would either be full of crap or breaking the law on lawyer/client confidence. This is just my thoughts based on my experience, maybe Cak can shed some light on it from a legal point of view.
Thinking about it more and I don't think anyone will know how this plays out until it happens (other than the family). It seems like a possibility that Cal may not have the $ to run the team and could have a sense of urgency to get things done while his mom is alive. Just a thought.
I think I saw a stat during one of the games that the Texans had scored the most points after a turnover?? Maybe it was just against the team they were playing against....not sure.
