CONCERT & SPORTS news
Texans - Rockets - Astros
The Texans have QB Matt Schaub back for the 2013 season. Let’s pray he stays healthy the whole year. Andre Johnson will be his big threat on the outside. Andre was #15 on the NFL.com’s top 100 players of the 2012 season. Arian Foster made the list too at #25. The Texans signed Foster to a long term contract in the off season. With those 3 players on the offensive side along with Coach Kubiak’s blocking scheme look for the Texans to out score their opponents this season. Part of the 2011 success was leading in time of possession and a plus 7 turnover ratio. Defensive Coach Wade Phillips turned down several Head Coaching offers to stay with the Texans. Mario Williams went to the Bills via free agency but considering how often he was playing hurt it was smart to save the money for other players. Rookie sensation J.J. Watt is already expected to dominate and require a double team leaving Smith and Baldwin a wide lane to the QB. Add in Crushing’s (also on the Top 100 Players list at #54) love for hitting hard it’s going to be a tough year for the opponents offense. The Texans get Green Bay, Baltimore, Buffalo, and Minnesota at home along with the AFC South teams. The Colts will certainly look different with Luck at QB. We tasted the playoffs last year and look forward to many years in the post season.
Houston Astros spent their last year in the National League in rebuild mode. New ownership of Jim Crane and others will look to the future in the American League for success. Carlos Lee is one of the few players on this team recognized around the league and this will be his final year with the Astros as his contract expires. The Astros are fielding the youngest team in the Majors and hope that all the youth gels together for long term success.
The Rockets finished last year as the best team NOT to make the playoffs…again. So they tried to put together a package to get Dwight Howard from Orlando with draft picks but it fell through. They even traded fan favorite Chase Budinger to the T-wolves to move up 2 spots but it still wasn’t enough. Coach Kevin McHale is going to have one of the youngest teams in the NBA with the additions of Lamb, Wright, and Jones. Look for more trades as the Rockets try to climb back into playoff contention. Bull’s Center Omer Asik is their top choice for the center position with Howard out of the picture.
Quite a few Texans have gone to the Pro Bowl. In 2011 - Arian Foster, Vonta Leach, and Andre Johnson. In 2010 - Brian Cushing, Andre Johnson, DeMeco Ryans, Matt Schaub and Mario Williams. 2009 had 3 Texans in the Pro Bowl - Owen Daniels, Andre Johnson and Mario Williams.
