Charles Omenihu fired a shot out to the NFL world that the Houston Texans could be a force this year.
After the Houston Texans obliterated the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1 (and basically forced the Urban Meyer-USC rumors to start flying), Charles Omenihu wants to put the league on notice. Omenihu came on 97.5FM Houston’s “The Wheelhouse” and said that with all the negative publicity and projections about the team, that the Houston Texans have just simply ignored it.
Even when it comes to the entire Deshaun Watson story, Omenihu reiterated his support for his teammate. Omenihu cited the fact that they share the same agent, so they have known each other before Omenihu was ever on the team.

The approach that the Texans are taking to this season is absolutely the best way to do it. What’s a better situation as a football player when there’s zero belief in your team (outside of the fanbase) and the players know they can compete? It allows for less pressure throughout the season and a chance to pop a contender in the mouth (like this week’s game at Cleveland).
Listening to the interview, just listen to how much Omenihu credits both Lovie Smith and David Culley on being positive forces for a team that was allegedly supposed to be straight-up trash. For once, Cal McNair got something right- hiring Nick Caserio who, in turn, filled out this coaching staff.
Texans fans couldn’t have asked for a better Week 1 start, and now that the world has seen what the Houston Texans can do, it’s time to upset some teams down the road.
Be ready NFL, as the Texans may just steal a win from your favorite team this season.
