Houston Texans Gifted a Stellar 2012 Schedule

There’s not much to complain about around here at The Toro Times. Our Texans are coming off their first division title, postseason appearance and postseason victory. We’ve craved national respect for a long decade, and finally we’ve got it. Sure, we saw our beloved Texans shed a few contracts, but with the just-released 2012 schedule, which features five national television appearances, and what promises to be another terrific draft, all ain’t so bad in the Bull Pen. What does everyone think about that schedule?

I like the easy start to the season and Thanksgiving Day game at Detroit, which promises to feature two of the league’s harder hitting defenses and explosive offenses. Nice to see a Monday Nighter at the Jets as well. What’s more is this is apparently one of the easier schedules in the NFL next season, so what’s not to love? Oh, I also like the fact that the Texans will be set up to get revenge on Baltimore at Reliant.
