Here are your daily Houston Texans stories for Saturday:
Where are the Texans receivers ranked? by Battle Red Blog
"After a season in which the Houston Texans could only muster the “talents” of Cecil Shorts III and Nate “Rubik’s Cube Hands” Washington to complement budding megastarDeAndre Hopkins, the Texans got an injection of talent in the 2016 NFL Draft in the form of first-round pick Will Fuller and third-round pick Braxton Miller. Add to that the “offseason emergence” (whatever the hell THAT means) of Jaelen Strong, and the Texans, at least on paper, are set to be much stronger at this position."
Well, the Texans are not in the top 10. Not that I expected that. But I might have said top half. But that too is wrong. I guess I can understand the ranking that they received, because despite the infusion of talent there are still mostly unknowns in Will Fuller, Braxton Miller and Jaelen Strong.

Keys to success by Sam Darley
"This year however brings bigger expectations, with a revamped offense, a defense who performed extremely well in the second half of the year. The Texans have been fishing at the bottom of the QB ocean, by their choice. Signing guys like Ryan Fitzpatrick and Brian Hoyer, but ending up using 9 guys in 2 years at the games most important position."
I agree with some of these points, but be better at every facet of the game is fairly intuitive. I mean, that’s like telling a NASCAR driver, don’t wreck.
J.J. Watt’s shoes are here by ABC 13
"The shoes became available online Friday at midnight and will hit the shelves later in the day.The shoe called the “JJ I” is a training shoe forged from the partnership between Reebok and the three-time defensive player of the year."
It’s amazing how a defensive player is suddenly achieving the visibility of Watt. There are very few defensive players that have become as marketable as he is. Being linked to Kate Hudson and now Lindsey Vonn can’t hurt.
