The Texans need some help at offensive tackle, everyone knows it, even my grandma knows it. But there is an issue.

The issue? 2019’s free-agent tackle group is weak.

There isn’t a starter at left tackle without obvious flaws, but there are solid options. On the other side of the line, there are much more options including younger players that can start immediately.

The calls for a new offensive coordinator are real. Bill O’Brien seems to be over his head playing the role of both head coach and coordinator. On Twitter, fans have started the calls for a new offensive coordinator since the Texans devastating loss to the Colts.

The “O’Brien Way” for coaching hires has been to promote from within, with an emphasis on like-minded individuals (former Patriots).

Through five seasons as an NFL starter, Jadeveon Clowney has faced plenty of ups and downs.

Starting off as being labeled as a bust through his first two seasons while he combatted knee injuries, to becoming one of the most intimidating and versatile players in the NFL. That development didn’t happen overnight. Through five years of hard work, Clowney went from athlete to refined pass rusher. He has added multiple moves to his arsenal (jab swipe and pull-down are my favorites) while continuously building upon his hard work.
