Here are your daily Houston Texans stories for Tuesday, July 12th:
The Texans have the Brightest Future in the AFC South by Brett Kollmann, Battle Red Blog
"I will just relish the fact that the Colts are ranked dead last in the AFC South (25th) behind both the Jaguars (22nd) and Titans (23rd) while the Texans hold pole position in the division by a huge margin. As “uncertain” as Bill O’Brien and Rick Smith’s quarterback situation is compared to the rest of their division, nobody can deny that their overall composition of the roster and the quality of their coaching is among the best in the entire NFL."
Well, I think the whole division got slighted here. I think the Texans could be a little higher with the talent they have developed so far (Brock Osweiler is going to determine a lot), but the Jaguars and Titans have strong young cores they are building on. The Colts have a quarterback with elite talent, which makes up for many weaknesses they have.

Training Camp Battles to Watch by Joel Childers, NFL Spin Zone
"The draft brought Houston some new weapons on offense along with some needed depth on the offensive line, and now the Texans are looking like one of the AFC’s better teams. Every position on the field is crucial though, and if the Texans want to make a deep playoff run they’ll have to fill every hole."
Who is the Texans Biggest Rival? by Sean Pendergast, Houston Press
"So yeah, I know they’ve sucked like a Hoover for the past four or five years, but how can you not answer “Tennessee”? Again, they STOLE our team! So to me, the right answer is the Titans, with the Broncos as a very sneaky prospect in the near future."
I agree, there’s nobody else it could be but the Titans! The Jaguars would also suffice, but there is no way the Colts should get this distinction. They don’t belong in this division, their biggest rival is the Patriots. If they played more often, the Cowboys or Saints could certainly deserve the title of biggest Texans rival.
