Hammond: Hard Knocks Told You How Much Mallett Oversleeping Mattered

Bob McNair said what he expects J.J. Watt or any player to do in an NFL investigation: cooperate. There wasn’t much on Ryan Mallett oversleeping in Hard Knocks because it didn’t matter much. Don’t think Watt […]

Hammond: No Reason Hoyer Can’t Be This Good In Regular Season

Brian Hoyer did everything against the Saints he could’ve done in a preseason game, and everything he’ll need to do in the regular season. Ryan Mallett was “off” against the Saints, exactly as you’d expect […]

What Can Texans Expect From Clowney? Who Knows?

We know what’s possible for Jadeveon Clowney this season. Just not what’s probable. We’ll soon find out how much what Brian Hoyer did with the Browns last season mattered. If you believe Russell Wilson’s claims about his recovery […]

Hard Knocks Proves, O’Brien Wanted Mallett To Win Texans QB Job

Notice how Bill O’Brien told the QBs who would start? GM Rick Smith showed you how to “win the roster cut.” Ryan Mallett needs to win O’Brien’s trust back. Slowly. O’Brien can laugh at himself. Not […]

Hammond: O’Brien Didn’t Fix Texans QB Competition

How exactly does Bill O’Brien make sure Brian Hoyer wins the QB battle and Ryan Mallett can’t? If you think a motor sports death makes for a big conversation, imagine an NFL on-field death. All Hoyer is […]

Von Miller: “Ryan Mallett’s My Guy”

Von Miller is the first to admit. When it comes to the Houston Texans quarterback competition between Ryan Mallett and Brian Hoyer, the Denver Broncos star pass rusher isn’t exactly impartial. “I’m kinda biased,” Miller […]

DeMarcus Ware: Both Texans QBs Fit O’Brien’s Scheme Well

After spending the first nine years of his career with the Dallas Cowboys, and quarterback Tony Romo, DeMarcus Ware signed with Peyton Manning’s Denver Broncos in the 2014 offseason. In other words, Ware knows good quarterback play when […]

Brandon Marshall: Near INT Wasn’t Mallett’s Fault

Maybe the only blemish on Ryan Mallett’s night wasn’t on Mallett. At least according to the guy who made the play. Linebacker Brandon Marshall, who nearly picked off a Mallett pass in the first quarter […]

Hammond: How Mallett Wins Texans QB Job vs. Broncos

Ryan Mallett can win the Texans starting QB competition Saturday against the Broncos if… (And no, Bill O’Brien’s mind isn’t already made up, Brian Hoyer hasn’t already won it). Carlos Correa is everything Jadeveon Clowney […]

Hammond: Clowney Isn’t Lazy For Needing Help With Motivation

Brian Hoyer got “the starter treatment” because he started that game. Not because he’s the starter. Jadeveon Clowney needing extra motivation during his rehab isn’t different than what we all need. Don’t assume that Bill O’Brien […]
