Texans Morning Huddle–Sheriff is in town


Here are the Texans stories for January 26th:

What if Peyton came to Houston? by Garret Heinrich, CBS

"Manning was rumored to be meeting with multiple teams, but many of the reports that happened at the time, and that have come down since, have said Peyton wanted to choose the Houston Texans but Gary Kubiak, the front office or a combination of the two didn’t want the Hall of Fame quarterback.  Fast forward to 2015/2016 and Gary Kubiak is coaching the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl and Peyton Manning is his quarterback."

Texans add another defensive lineman in the first by Battle Red Blog

"The lust for an honest-to-goodness quarterback prospect is building to a fevered pitch amongst Houston Texans fans. It’s a glaring enough need that many a mock draft has the good guys taking a signal-caller with their first round pick. You’re also liable to see some mock drafts sending a running back to Houston in the first round based upon the uncertainty surrounding that position on the Texans’ roster in 2016."

Kubiak working in Denver by Tania Ganguli, ESPN

"It’s funny how things happen.On Sunday night, Gary Kubiak did what he never could as the Houston Texans‘ head coach. He led his team to a win in the AFC Championship Game and a berth in the Super Bowl.His victory with the Denver Broncos exposed an irony of being an NFL head coach. When Kubiak had the offense he needed and the time to build it, the circumstances just didn’t work out. Now that he doesn’t have the offense nor the time, they have worked out."

Kubiak and Daniels going to a Super Bowl by Arnie Stapleton, Miami Herald

"It’s that football acumen that led coach Gary Kubiak to vouch for Daniels last spring when he and general manager John Elway mapped out their free agency plans and offered Daniels a three-year, $12 million contract.Daniels has played for Kubiak his entire NFL career. He spent eight seasons with him in Houston and followed him to Baltimore in 2014 when Kubiak was hired as the Ravens’ offensive coordinator following his firing as the Texans’ head coach."
