  1. NFL.COM is calling the Atlanta collapse bigger than the Oilers collapse. http://www.nfl.com/photoessays/0ap3000000785849/ranking-the-biggest-collapses-in-nfl-history
  2. I really like Bouye, I think he would be a huge upgrade to our secondary and probably our #1 CB depending on who else is acquired. He is young and barring injury should contribute for many years to come.
  3. Time to show him the money, he is young and talented, a good person to overspend on. And we need CBs.
  4. I could see us trading down for picks if we don't like a game changer at 5. I can also see, at minimum, a good veteran corner signed in FA and a decent draft prospect added at corner through the draft. We have so much cap space and draft picks, we should be able to inject at least 2 new corners into the mix.
  5. Another article No matter what is done to NRG, Houston is looking at a wait of likely at least a decade before landing another Super Bowl. Even New Orleans —one of the cities in the NFL’s so-called Super Bowl rotation — waited 11 years after the 2002 Super Bowl before getting another. The last city to get two Super Bowls in the same decade was Phoenix/Glendale, which had the big game in 2008 and 2015. The NFL’s already changed since then. You don’t think the NFL would love to hold a Super Bowl in London by 2027? http://www.papercitymag.com/culture/houston-embarrasses-dallas-super-bowl-host-battle-cowboys-jerry-jones-wants-redo/
  6. True but that eats a big amount of cap space which the Texans don't have.
  7. Bouye can definitely get more money with another team.
  8. Ya especially since it is likely a single frozen patty cooked and then sitting under a heat lamp burger.
  9. You know, I think you have a point, the article is suppose to astound you on the prices, I think they actually did a pretty good job being reasonable. It always amazes me thay can get away with a $30 double shot of alcohol, which is often old or watered down.
  10. Bottled domestic beers were $12, and stadium go-tos like hot dogs and burgers ran $8 and $16. I guess if you paid $6K for a single ticket, this didn't bother you much. https://munchies.vice.com/en/articles/heres-how-ridiculously-expensive-the-food-and-beer-at-the-super-bowl-was?utm_campaign=trendsus&utm_source=munchiesfbus
  11. Just a rant, it's been a finalist for a SB in more of the recent years, the NFL brass likes the night life there, they keep inviting them to bid. http://www.nola.com/saints/index.ssf/2015/05/super_bowl_invite.html
  12. That's an interesting take. 27 of 50 Super Bowls have been played in three cities: New Orleans (ten times), the Greater Miami area (ten times), and the Greater Los Angeles area (seven times).
  13. At least this is the apparent conversation the NFL had with the stadium operators prior to this super bowl. The stadium is 16 years old, but still pretty much state of the art. The article does not mention what improvements are needed. I found it interesting that this stadium is already "not good enough" but we'll gladly go back to New Orleans because there's a hell of great night life there. However, the next four Super Bowls will be played in either brand new stadiums, or in facilities that have been renovated. To secure the Super Bowl five years from now in 2022, NRG will no doubt have to look different than it does now. http://www.click2houston.com/news/what-does-houston-need-to-do-for-nrg-stadium-to-host-another-super-bowl
  14. One thing both choke jobs have in common: An over confident OC who refused to call running plays in obvious situations to run out the clock.
