Johnson reports to camp early

After fearing another frustrating rebuilding year, Wide Receiver Andre Johnson did not report to any of the camps held by the Texans leading up to the preseason.  Johnson has had a sudden change of heart and showed up at the Texans training facility ahead of schedule and got to learning the new playbook.

“I love playing the game of football,” Johnson said at NRG Stadium. “I don’t plan on walking away from this.”

Texans drop 12th in a row

Wade Phillips loses first game as Interim Head Coach

For the second straight week, the Houston Texans struggled to play disciplined football totaling 114 yards in penalties for the second week in a row.  Those negative yards were key in adding to the franchises 12 straight loss.

“That’s very disheartening,” Phillips said of the penalties. “Ten of them were in the first half which really hurt our defense. I don’t know what pass interference is anymore. I thought the guy made a heck of a play to get the ball on the one-yard line. At the end of the game, we jumped offsides. When you know its third-and-one, those kind of penalties, there’s no excuse for those.”

The game was viewed as the first of three for former Cowboys Head Coach Wade Phillips in which to impress team owners enough to keep him on as the head coach for next season.  There are already rumors that put Penn State Head Coach Bill O’Brien in the running.

Things can go from bad to worse next weekend as the Texans face Peyton Manning and the #1 Team in the AFC, the Denver Broncos.

“They’re the number one offense in the league. Not just him (Manning), but their whole offense, their offensive line, their running backs. They move the ball better than anybody in the league. I think we’re fourth now in people moving the ball on us. It’s a big challenge.”

Tickets and great seats are still available for this AFC match up.

Texans look to rebound against Rams

The Houston Texans and quarterback Matt Schaub in particular are looking to bounce back from a drubbing at the hands of San Francisco to the tune of 34-3.  Head Coach Gary Kubiak  thought long and hard about making a change.

“Tough decision,” Kubiak said. “Real tough. I feel like it’s the best thing for our football team this weekend and so there was a lot of thought put into it, a lot of evaluations.”
