We are finally at the weekend and though there really hasn’t been much in the way of “blockbuster” news for the Houston Texans there was still more than enough to talk about this past week.

As for this weekend, ESPN.com talked about an article former Texans linebacker Connor Barwin was involved in.

According to ESPN’s Paul Kuharsky, Brawin gave an “insider perspective” of a locker room in the NFL in The MMQB site.

In the MMQB article, Barwin wrote:

"“What we end up with in the NFL is a room full of 65 of the most athletic, driven, and—let’s face it—reckless men in the country.”"

Barwin also wrote:

"“I’ll never forget what veteran fellow linebacker Mike Vrabel told me my rookie year, ‘You know you are on a good team when the vets are teaching the rookies how to take their jobs.'”"

Vrabel is now a defensive coach for the Texans. As ESPN said in their article, this article by Barwin is worth reading.

• CSN Houston has an article about a Texans cheerleader, a Twitter fan and his prom.

This is a fun way to get a date to prom by a Texans cheerleader. Good for him and her.

• The Ultimate Texas blog has a video of J.J. Watt ,moving a 1,000-pound tire many times.

Dude is strong. Watch out o-line opponents and opposing QBs in 2014.

• Here is an NFL.com article about how Charlie Casserly (the former Texans GM) says Jadeveon Clowney is better than Mario Williams.

The article states:

"“It’s noteworthy coming from Casserly because the former Texans general manager was widely panned for bypassing the more ballyhooed Reggie Bush and Vince Young to select Williams No. 1 overall in the 2006 NFL Draft.”"

The article is an interesting one.
