BILL O'BRIEN: HOUSTON SHOULD BE PROUD OF HOYER AND MALLET BY LM




Sunday, after the Houston Texans wrapped up training camp, Bill O'Brien took questions from the media. While monitoring Twitter for camp updates, I noticed a few media members tweet the following





When I first seen this, I said "WTF, has the Houston Sun cooked a few brain cells out there".  Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallet have not accomplished anything worth being proud of.  That's not being mean, that's just the truth and I'm more surprised there was not a follow up question

I am beginning to notice Bill O'Brien seems to get very defensive about mediocre ass quarterbacks dating back to the 2014 season.  It's almost like O'Brien is telling the media "hey, you can control the discussion in Houston, talk my quarterbacks up instead of being objective".  What's not said in the Tweets, O'Brien also singled out the media, the people who are supposed to be the conduit to the fans.  Media should be objective and not marching to the drums of a head coach.  However, maybe Bill should read and listen a little better because most of the local media has ordained Hoyer as the starter.

Usually, I try to get context of quotes, but in this case, I can't see any football reason I should be proud of them for doing a job.  Last week, I found out that Hoyer support the troops monetarily and I'm happy with that being a Veteran but not for nothing he did on the field.

We are living in a world where words like heroic, brave, courage and proud is being throwed around way to loosely.    What's next, we should be proud of Clowney?

Hey Billy, I;m also pissed, you want to know what pisses me off, NO QUARTERBACK since Houston's inception I can truly believe in.

Will Denver Regret Losing Julius Thomas?



Will Denver Regret Losing Julius Thomas?


There were a lot of changes for the Denver Broncos during the 2015 offseason, as the team looks forward to trying to bounce back from an early playoff exit. They still feel like they are one of the top teams in their conference, but not everyone is giving them a huge chance to get back to a Super Bowl level. A big reason why people are starting to doubt them has to do with the loss of Julius Thomas. While any player is replaceable, Denver might find it very difficult to have their offense clicking like the last few years.


Peyton Manning is really getting up there in age, and some people in fantasy football leagues feel like he could be due for one of his worst seasons in his career in 2015. The arm strength is just not the same as it used to be, so one would think that he would rely on shorter passes much more frequently. However, he now needs to find a new trustworthy target at tight end. Thomas was very reliable, but now he is a main focal point of the offense for the Jacksonville Jaguars.


Taking the place of Thomas will be Owen Daniels. He has had some success in fantasy football leagues in the past, and his numbers should obviously go up with Manning throwing in the ball. At the same time, he is not going to be nearly as reliable. There is a reason why Daniels is barely viewed as a top 15 tight end. He has had health concerns recently, and his quickness is obviously not the same as before. Manning won’t be able to lean on him.

Virgil Green is also an option for Manning, but he can’t be trusted all that much until he gets some more reps with the team. He caught six passes last year, so he would need to be able to do a lot more this season to make an impact.


Without Thomas, Denver is still going to have an above-average offense in general. There are plenty of playmakers at wide receiver, and the running game is solid as well. The Broncos will be a strong playoff contender in 2015, but competing for a Super Bowl might be asking a little bit too much. We will just have to see who is able to step up and fill the void.
