Texans’ DeAndre Hopkins Slams PI Officiating



DeAndre Hopkins

Houston Texans’ wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins isn’t took happy with how pass interference, or lack thereof, are being officiated and is calling for changes after a blatant non-call during Sunday’s game between the Texans and the Baltimore Ravens.

During the 1st quarter of Sunday’s game, Ravens’ cornerback Marlon Humphrey seemed to obviously commit pass interference when defending Hopkins on a play in the end zone.

Texans’ head coach Bill O’Brien challenged the play, but the no-call was upheld and the Texans turned the ball over on downs.

Hopkins was still upset with the way that went down when the 41-7 thrashing was over, and aired his frustrations during some tweets.


“Everyone saw it,” Texans’ quarterback Deshaun Watson said, according to ESPN’s Sarah Bishop. “The guy wrapped him around. But they didn’t make that call. You’ve got to live with it. You can’t really dwell on it. It definitely could have been a changing point of the game. A momentum switch. But it’s just one of those calls that, it didn’t go our way, and we’ve got to continue to push forward.”

While Watson said the play could have been a turning point in the game, it’s hard to argue it would have mattered that much as the Texans’ were thoroughly thumped by the Ravens, with the Texans’ defense looking terrible and their offensive line not playing very well, at all.

“I have no idea what pass interference is anymore” O’Brien added. “No idea.”

Despite the rule changes that the NFL made during the offseason to allow coaches to challenge pass interference penalties that were or were not called, the numbers show that it has not really moved the needle that much, and public reaction has overwhelmingly been negative.

Texans’ J.J. Watt Out for Season



J.J. Watt

Houston Texans’ superstar defensive end J.J. Watt will miss the remainder of the 2019 season after suffering a season ending injury, which the team fears is a a torn pectoral muscle, during Sunday’s victory over the Oakland Raiders, according to ESPN’s Dianna Russini.

Watt took to social media to confirm the injury, and the unfortunate news that he will miss the rest of the season.

The loss of a player of Watt’s caliber is certainly a big blow to a hopeful Texans team that has Super Bowl aspirations.

“It’s tough,” Texans’ quarterback Deshaun Watson said. “That’s a big part of this team. But he knows that this locker room, this organization, this town, this city, the Houston nation is definitely going to support him through his recovery. We always love him. He’s going to be right there with us. Important, helping us out. You hate to just see, not just him, but anybody go down and any injury, especially a season-ending injury. All the work that he put in to get to this point. It’s crazy and it sucks, but we all send our prayers towards him. We love him, and we’re definitely going to support him.”

Watt had three tackles, a tackle for a loss and a pass defended prior to suffering the injury on Sunday, and has collected 4 sacks this season.

The latest injury adds to a string of injuries that the 30-year old Watt has endured over the past few seasons. Watt had not missed a single game during the first 5 seasons of his career, and prior to the troubling string of injuries which has resulted in him finishing the year on injured reserve in three of the past four seasons.

Now, its on the Texans fill the void left by Watt’s injury.

“We’ve had moments like these,” Texans’ outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus said. “It’s nothing new to us. When we have situations where it might seem like we’re down and people are counting us out, all we do is put our heads down and keep trucking down and make plays.”

“As you’ve seen out on the field you’ve seen guys stepping up and making plays you see the depth the guys are good enough to start in this league. It’s the next-man-up mentality. We’ve had injuries in the back end. Those guys have done a great job stepping up making plays for us. It just means we’ve got to double down on some efforts.”


Injuries happen, but with a strong health plan players such as JJ Watt can be back on the field to take another snap.

Brock Osweiler Retires from NFL



Brock Osweiler

Veteran quarterback Brock Osweiler officially announced his retirement from the NFL on Wednesday.

Osweiler, who played for the Denver Broncos, Houston Texans, and Miami Dolphins during his career, steps away from the game at the age of 28 and has not signed with a team during 2019.

Osweiler, who last played for the Dolphins in 2018, said that he is “extremely grateful for the time I did receive playing in the National Football League”, according to 9News in Denver’s Mike Klis.

“The experiences I did have, people I did meet, relationships I did make — I’m not going to dwell on the things that didn’t happen in my career.

“Being a kid from Kalispell, Montana, playing for the Denver Broncos, winning a Super Bowl, having the opportunity to sign a second contract — when you look back on it, I couldn’t be more appreciative. It was great.”

Osweiler is best known for his performance during the 2015 season, when he filled in for an injured Peyton Manning to go 5-2, and help the Broncos earn the AFC’s top seed en route to their Super Bowl 50 championship.

His performance in 2015 helped him land a $72 million contract with the Texans.

“That 2015 season is something that is very special,” Osweiler said. “The coaches, the players, they mean the world to me. I was thankful to have had the opportunity to play the role I did, but that was the ultimate team deal. There was a ton of talent on that football team, but I would say we were the closest of all teams in the National Football league. Our culture was beyond anything that can ever be created. It was so genuine, so real that I think any coach or player on that team would have done anything for anybody in that building that year.”

Osweiler didn’t last long in Houston, who traded him to the Cleveland Browns, who released him prior to the 2017 season leading him back to the Broncos.

“I have my health. I have the ring. There’s a lot of things I still wanted to accomplish. And I have a lot more left in the tank. But, hey, sometimes you don’t get that opportunity. And given that, it’s all good,” Osweiler said.


When it was all said and done, Osweiler has a Super Bowl trophy. You should be the champion of your industry, and you deserve a championship Florida SEO team behind you.

Texans’ Jadeveon Clowney Fires Agent, Wants Trade



Jadeveon Clowney

Houston Texans edge rusher is pushing for a trade out of Houston, and will get new representation to help him do just that.

According to NFL Network insiders Tom Pelissero and Mike Garafolo, Clowney has fired his longtime agent, Bus Cook as he was unhappy with how talks were going with the Texans.

Clowney is now eligible to seek new representation. Clowney is also looking for a way out of Houston, via a trade.

According to the Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson, Clowney prefers to be traded to either the Seattle Seahawks or the Philadelphia Eagles.

According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, Clowney met in person with Miami Dolphins’ head coach Brian Flores along with other members of the Dolphins’ brass, however the rebuilding Dolphins’ aren’t his first choice.

Furthermore, the Dolphins would be open to working out a lucrative extension with Clowney, should he end up in Miami, when he becomes eligible. Their current cap space, and projected cap space next offseason will allow them to do just that, and much more.

Clowney wants a long-term deal, but the Texans and his reps have been able to make any headway towards a new deal.

According to MMQB’s Albert Breer, back in the spring it was believed that Clowney could be traded at the cost of a second round draft pick.
