The Texans have to clean house now. I don’t know if they can sustain mediocrity as a mid-level team with playoff talent. On the roster, they have the talent (especially on defense) to be a strong contender for years to come. But overall, they are just not good enough to be that team.
Unfortunately, the Texans likely will draft a new quarterback to run the team. Arian Foster can never seem to stay healthy and Andre Johnson’s talents are wasting away. There’s a lot of changes on the horizon and who knows if the new head coach will change everything up?
As it appears right now, the Texans are in the crossroads. Milk out whatever potential talent they have left or start fresh with a new regime. It would be easy just to stick with what they have and hope maybe they can catch lightning in the bottle. But it doesn’t look like this team has what it takes.
I think one of the things that inspires me about Nelson Mandela is that he constantly saw the good in people. Even though he was mistreated, he believed that there was good in people despite hate. He believed that we all deserve to be together without separation.
His impact to not only his country, but the world continues to grow today. It’s a reminder for us that we live in a world of hope and love. It’s just hard to find it sometimes, but if you believe it, it will be achieved.
The above video is one of many reasons why Mandela is so inspiring.
Rest in peace, Madiba. Thank you.
Check out this tweet the Warriors sent out after they came back to beat the Raptors on Tuesday. Earlier in the day, the San Jose Sharks beat the Toronto Maple Leafs, giving the two Bay Area teams a clean sweep of their Toronto counterparts that evening.
But take a look at the Warriors tweet above. The location says that the tweet was sent out by someone in Los Angeles.
Why are the Warriors tweeting from Los Angeles when the game they just finished was in Oakland? Apparently whomever runs the Warriors account watches the game not live in person, but most likely on television. That’s so strange.
Pitcher Tommy Milone has worn #57 since joining the Athletics. The team is giving away his signed jersey for a contest today.
However, the jersey features #47. I initially thought that was a mistake. But why would the A’s be giving away a mistake? After all, Milone signed it himself and it would make no sense for an athlete to sign a jersey that isn’t correct.
But on the signature, Milone signed #57 on it.
Maybe Milone changed his number and the Athletics might have accidentally (or maybe intentionally) announced it on Twitter. Or maybe this was a mistake.
Props should be given to Auburn for being heads up on the final play to win the game. But the same cannot be said for Alabama. In fact, it’s very embarrassing that they let it happened.
It just seemed like the entire special teams, save for maybe one or two players, were ready for a potential return on a missed kick. In fact, most times when it comes to a ball fielded that deep into the end zone, the returner doesn’t get past the 30-yard line.
But it was great blocking on Auburn’s part and the delayed reaction by Alabama really took away from this ending for me. It was a thrilling ending, but it came in part because one team just wasn’t ready. That’s a shame.
That game yesterday was everything that I wanted and it delivered. It was everything SJSU needed to show the world that they are still a team that can win big games.
What we got was a thrilling, exhilarating game like I’ve never seen before. It was a game of two halves. It was the unstoppable offenses in the first half and the clutch defensive stops in the second half.
Needing to win that game (and break the three-game losing streak) to make it back to a bowl game was a big deal for the program. SJSU needed it so bad and taking out #16 ranked and undefeated Fresno State to do it in the process makes it so sweet.
This was something I saw this morning and I don’t know if this is new or relatively old or whatnot. But it is a pretty unique development.
For the longest time, visors in the NFL have either been clear or tinted. But never have I seen a visor designed where you can see the logo on it.
I always thought in terms of branding that there were limitations on how a player can equip their helmet. However, since the design is the team logo, then it would be OK, right?
I haven’t seen this yet on the field. If I had missed it, I’m pretty shocked I did. Would more teams adapt this look or is too much of a distraction? I think it looks pretty cool but I think it might be too much of a visual distraction.
