    Im waiting on the Wembley tickets to go on sale and wanted to ask is there a definitive best area of the stadium to buy tickets.

    I saw Giants-Dolphins at Wembley in around 07 and the seats were pretty high up but a decent view considering.

    With this being a once in a lifetime event possibly, i want to get really good seats, is the sideline the best or is it better viewing from the endzone?

    Does JJ play throw and catch all around the stadium before the game or are there certain areas he tends to go?

    My "live viewing experience" would be to aim for lower bowl about midway up if you want sideline (tv) view. If you want "all 22" view looking down the field from the endzone, you'll want to be higher up to see the other end of the field when the action is over there.

    To me, being at a game is about what you can't get from a TV. So I don't worry about viewing everything or a bird's eye view. That's why I chose front row seats on the 15, Texans sideline. You can hear & feel the game and see the most critical play, red zone, right in front. Also great for seeing behind the scene player & coach interactions. The stadium has screens for what you may miss out on & you can DVR for detail.

    Besides Nick Bosa, it's all offensive skill positions invited by the NFLPA based on anticipated demand for their NFL trading cards. I don't know that there's a lot of people trading cards for NFL lineman.

    Posting this on Ryan Griffin in this section because it reflects him as a Texan.

    PFF HOU Texans‏@PFF_Texans 1d1 day ago

    Griffin hadn't posted a grade over 60 since his rookie season in 2013 and was the odd man out after the Texans drafted three tight ends in the last two drafts.

    Is there a reason to believe the three top tight ends for 2019 will play any more than the three in 2018 for Houston?

    Are you talking in terms of pass routes run? A talent upgrade at OL and TE overall should lend itself to DW4 making use of the TE more as pass catchers in 2019. Though if you are of the belief that Fuller/Coutee will stay healthy all season then yes they will not receive an uptick in targets as a whole (in a good way of course). Only one football and all!

    Pretty everything that's happened this off season leads me to believe that.

    Same here. I’m really excited with the direction BG is going with this team. I’ve been impressed with his two drafts and I’m really impressed with the sounds out of the locker room. I’m hearing a different level of confidence and it’s great to hear DW’s excitement over all his new targets. Guy is a real leader, always has been and this year I believe he’s going to take it to another level. So let’s hear it from all the negative folks now but I never in my career saw any dull negative minion ever accomplish much.

    They got rid of the cork in the bottle, Griffin.

    The two Jordan's should be taking big steps going into year 2.

    The Texans seem really tickled to have had Warring drop to them.

    Between the upgraded (yet to be seen how much) OLine and the new Fullback, the tight ends hopefully won't be needed to stay in and block as often, especially later on in the year as the OLine develops.

    My final thought on this: Tim Kelly, the new OC, has two years as Tight Ends coach on his resume'. He will have given a lot of thought to the role tight ends can play.

    That will come down to how well Devlin has prepared his OL for the 2019 season. I guess we can only hope he's down his job well enough that the OL can manage their jobs own their own.....thus freeing up the TE's to be part of the attack from a receiving standpoint.

    Every year we think the TEs will be unleashed.

    Every year we see our idea of unleashed & BO'bs idea of unleashed are very, very different.
