Good Monday, Texans fans! As we start the work week, lets grab some good coffee and get updates on our favorite NFL team! This morning we review the improvements the defense is making, Fosters’ 2015 potential, what Wilfork likes in the teams’ leadership and two Texans players’ reactions to the season 5 finale of ‘Game of Thrones’.
Texans Rounding Out Potentially Great D – by Nathanael Rutherford
"In 2014, the Houston Texans saw their defense take some steps forward and improved in almost every statistical area from the previous season. The Texans improved their rushing yards per game allowed, points allowed, third down defense, penalties, takeaway totals, and sack totals in 2014, and the only significant stat the Texans didn’t improve upon last season was their passing yards allowed per game.That upward trend only looks to continue in 2015. The Texans have made a number of moves to solidify their defense, plugging some of the holes that plagued the 2014 defense and strengthening the areas that already showed promise."

Wilfork impressed w/vet leadership – by Drew Dougherty
"“It’s easy for a guy to come in and see those guys work and be able to jump on the train,” Wilfork said. “That’s what it’s all about. Sometimes as an older guy and as a leader, you really don’t understand. A lot of people pay you attention when you least expect it, but they do.”Each of those players can be vocal at times, but Wilfork emphasized how their actions are even more important and equally impressive."
Texans react to ‘Game of Thrones’ finale – by Deepi Sidhu
"SPOILER ALERT!!! Read no further if you aren’t caught up on Game of Thrones. Seriously, you’ve been warned.It’s not even been 24 hours and the world is reeling from the events in Westeros. By world, I mean everyone who’s been sucked into the past ten episodes of Game of Thrones. How can one season finale have so many cliffhangers, by the way?If you don’t watch it, feel free to roll your eyes at those of us obsessed with King’s Landing, dragons, white walkers, big-budget battle scenes, and the rather unceremonious killing of beloved main characters."
