Time for a new season NFL thread, esp since the initial free agency signings and the first round of the NFL 2019 draft is over. I'll start with my hometown team, the Houston Texans. There is, or isn't, much to say, because the Texans haven't done much. They made little effort (or failed miserably behind the scenes) to improve the offensive line during FA, and drafted a "prospect.". I'm no expert, so I'll go by the draft grades I've seen on the interweb, C+ to D-. That's not good. I had the Texans on a one year "prove it" contract last season. They did better than expected during the regular season, keeping in mind several wins were close against weak teams. And they were predictably predictable in the playoffs. The Texans have a much tougher schedule this year, and several teams they will play have made improvements since last year. Unless the Texans have found, and will find, some under-the-radar players, this season is going to be very disappointing. Maybe they'll be able pick up some good players as cuts are made before the start of the regular season. I'm not holding my breath. O'Brien and Gaine are on the hot seat.
