Texans Morning Huddle – 5/16 Edition


The weekend has officially begun!

If you’re in Houston, things are really buzzing about the Rockets Game 7 approaching on Sunday but have no fear! There is plenty going on with the Texans to carry that momentum into football!

 2015 Houston Texans Draft: Jaelen Strong Is The Best And Keith Mumphery Is The Worst – by Tim

"“You want value? If Strong had been picked a full round earlier, nobody would have blinked. Nobody should expect a young Andre Johnson, but there’s every reason to expect a quality receiver who will make an impact as a rookie.”"

 Breakfast: Texans can draw inspiration from Rockets – by John Harris

"“This city has so much pride in that team and how it battled back in the fourth quarter of that win. Down and nearly out, Corey Brewer and Josh Smith, two guys that weren’t even Rockets at the start of the year, put that organization and this city on their backs and brought this series back to Houston for Game 7.”"

 Houston Texans all-time record vs. 2015 opponents – Michael Mull

"“Can they keep it up in ’15? From a strength of schedule perspective the Texans have one of NFL’s easiest slates. Their 2015 opponents were 106-148-2 (.417) in 2014, a much more accommodating schedule than last season.”"

Houston Texans’ 2013 draft one of league’s worst – by Tania Ganguli

"“The 2013 class was the last class drafted by general manager Rick Smith and then-head coach Gary Kubiak, now the head coach of theDenver Broncos. Then-Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips and college scouting director Mike Maccagnan also played significant roles. Phillips is now the Broncos’ defensive coordinator and Maccagnan is the Jets’ general manager.”"
