Why You Should Keep Hope by Battle Red Blog
"So, before we all go batcrap crazy over the current injury report, let’s take a deep breath, step back and take inventory of what’s real.Take a lights-out defense, coached by a defensive coordinator who is arguably one of the ten best in NFL history. Add in a solid young field general mentored by not one, but two highly respected quarterback gurus (mind you, he needs to play behind a questionable offensive line). Then toss in a dynamic corps of wide receivers that give opposing defensive backs fits. Don’t forget a solid special teams unit that may not win the game for you but shouldn’t lose it, either. Then put them in a division with opponents that have all proven quite beatable in recent memory. Mix it all together and you know what you get? The 2015 Denver Broncos. Oh, but add in a solid ground game led by one of the best young running backs in pro ball, and you get the 2016 Houston Texans."
This is a bit of an exaggeration. I highly doubt the Texans will be better than last year’s Super Bowl champions.

Quintin Demps is once again listed as the starting strong safety, and that might be a sign that he has won the starting job opposite Andre Hal. Cecil Shorts is listed as second string receiver and first punt returner, so that might be a sign he’s punched his ticket onto the team too.
