Texans could block Denver repeat by Troy Renck, Denver Post
"The Houston Texans created a path to the Broncos’ Super Bowl 50 championship. Could they also be responsible for road blocking a sequel?Injuries, ineffectiveness and a spiral the organization could not shake conspired to cost Gary Kubiak his job as Texans’ coach in 2013. He landed in Baltimore as an assistant and became John Elway‘s handpicked leader to elevate the Broncos’ playoff success. That Kubiak brought along many of his Houston coaches, namely defensive coordinator Wade Phillips and defensive line coach Bill Kollar, proved pivotal in reshaping the Broncos’ image of finesse into one of barbed wire and bare knuckles."
Texans and RG3 have mutual interest by the Inquistr
"Griffin certainly looked like a franchise caliber quarterback during his rookie season with the Redskins when he led them to the playoffs.Returning to the state of Texas may be exactly what the doctor ordered for Griffin’s career. He played his college football career at Baylor, which is located in Waco. Houston may not be a “homecoming” for Griffin, but it would be about as close as any player could ask for at the NFL level."
