Texans Morning Huddle–Offseason Issues
Here are your daily Texans stories for Sunday, focusing on what to do in the offseason.
Texans should not reach for a QB by Luke Sims, NFL Spin Zone
"The Houston Texans have managed to be that competitive in recent years behind a strong running game and an even stronger defense. In 2015, the Texans managed to get into the playoffs mostly through the strength of their strong defense. Future years may not see the AFC South division be as easy to beat, limiting a team like the Texans from getting into the playoffs.A 9-7 record, with a significant number of those wins against division competition, isn’t going to inspire people in the long run. It’s even less inspiring when you look at the horrific performance by quarterback Brian Hoyer in the playoffs (15 of 34 for 136 yards and four interceptions)."
Offseason needs, Part 1 by Travis Oquin, House of Houston
"As the Houston Texans stand today, the defense is in relatively good shape talent-wise, but the offense is desperate need in several spots. In Part I, we’ll take an in-depth look at where the Texans stand heading into the 2016 off-season on offense.Everyone knows the Texans have got to do something at quarterback this offseason. DeAndre Hopkins sure knows it as he made very clear in the playoff game against the Chiefs. And now we know owner Bob McNair feels similarly as well."

Part 2 by Oquin
"Previously we looked at the Texans offseason needs on the offense side of the ball. In this article we’ll examine the defensive side and special teams.Defensively the Texans are in relatively good shape, due to development of several players this past season and a number of early round picks that are in the starting group. The Texans finished the season ranked 3rd in yards allowed in the league. Expect very few draft picks to be used on defense in 2016 but there are a few spots where depth is needed."
Part 3 by Oquin
"We have previously looked at the Texans offseason needs on offense and defense. In this article we’ll examine the special teams.The Texans have several decisions to make on special teams. One of the highlights of GM Rick Smith’s spotty draft record can be seen by the lack of success from this unit."
