Christian Covington: Making Or Missing The CutWhen the Texans drafted Christian Covington last year, my first thought was that he didn’t quite fit the mold of a 3-4 defensive lineman. At the time, he was 6’2”, 289 lbs. That’s a sturdy human being, but it’s not quite heavy enough to be a 3-4 nose tackle, and not quite tall enough to be a 3-4 defensive end. He looked a whole lot like a 4-3 defensive tackle.
[WATCH] Fan Storms Field At Astros Game In Weird Tank TopIn the bottom of the fourth inning of the Astros game yesterday, a person holding an American flag stormed the field. I consulted a few people, and at this point, we're pretty sure it was a man. Many observers initially thought it was a woman, but that may have been because he was wearing a two-tone tank top that gave the impression of a tube top. So many questions: Was this an act of defiance or patriotism? Did he confuse June 4th with July 4th? Why did he seemingly give himself up, only to get up and run again? Have we given enough credit to the fans who brilliantly started the "USA--USA--USA" chant?
