Happy Hump Day! Here are your Wednesday Houston Texans stories:
Weaver excited to be back in Houston by Drew Dougherty, Houstontexans.com
"Anthony Weaver is happy he’s back with the Texans.The defensive line coach played from 2006 through 2008 in Houston, before segueing into a coaching career. Stops at the University of Florida, North Texas and the Jets, Bills and Browns came in between then and now. Returning to NRG Stadium in January as the new defensive line coach was different, to say the very least."
I’m not excited about this move. Sure it’s cool to have a former Texan in the room as a coach, but he had 15.5 sacks in his seven year career. J.J. Watt gets that in a year. He was a second round pick no less. He has spent the last two years as the DL coach in Cleveland, who had among the worst run defenses in the NFL. I hope he can prove me wrong, but I question what he will bring to the table.

Texans donate $750k to Brookwood Community by Aaron Wilson, Houston Chronicle
"“It’s amazing. To deal with the difficulties they have to deal with and, yet to have a smile on their face, it’s just wonderful. Brookwood is a unique place. We just love having them support us. They go crazy when the players come out here. It brings enjoyment to their life.”McNair was joined at the charity event by his Texans punter Shane Lechler, kicker Nick Novak, long snapper Jon Weeks and safety Lonnie Ballentine along with his son, Texans vice chairman and chief operating officer Cal McNair and his wife, Hannah."
This shows what a great presence the Texans are in the Houston community. Stories like this show the league really does care about the community.
Osweiler compares new offense to learning French by Tania Ganguli, ESPN
"While the Texans have spent the offseason making over their offense, their level of success will center around their most significant move. Osweiler’s development and comfort level will dictate much of whether those changes work. He’s working on it now and it’s energized him.“You know, it’s fun,” Osweiler said. “It’s hard to judge that progress because we haven’t hit the practice field and gone against a defense. It’s like you speak Spanish your whole life and then they tell you to go learn French and do it in front of 75,000 people.”"
Well, it will be a process to get accustomed to his new teammates. Still, I reckon that 16 games with him will be better than switching between four different guys.
