With the arrival of the weekend, let’s take a little time out of our Friday and see what is going on with the Houston Texans from around the web.

Tania Ganguli of ESPN.com has a series of articles about plays that shaped the 2013 season for the Texans. Coming in at No. 7 of the list is an interception by T.J. Yates that went for a touchdown.

Ganguli wrote:

"“Cheers from fans began as Schaub still lay on the ground, then grew when T.J. Yates entered the game. Yates, though, threw an interception to Rams’ linebacker Alec Ogletree that he returned 98 yards for a touchdown.”"

I’m sorry, but thinking back about that play made me laugh a little because that play was just so awful, plus the season just continued to get worse and worse.

I’m ready to just completely forget about the 2013 season, but we can’t because the Texans still have a lot to learn about themselves by how they rebound from the 2-14 year.

• Our friends at House of Houston have an article on the Texans and their “Cap and Draft By The Numbers.”

Marcus Chavez wrote for HoH:

"“I’m being too hard on McNair. I’ll go ahead and blame that one on eight frustrating years of Gary, although I do believe that Smith should have been shown the door as well. Those were his free agents, draft picks, and it’s his job as the GM to plant the seed in a coaches head, you win, or you’re out.”"

This is a fun article with lots of graphs that are worth checking out.

•  CSN Houston wrote about the Texans signing tight end Zach Potter. The article stated:

"“Potter entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2009 from Nebraska. He was a defensive end in college. He’s 6-7, 280. The Baltimore Sun’s Aaron Wilson first reported the signing.”"

Any signing right now will draw my interest, and later this weekend, I’ll have some more thoughts on the signing.
