Ghastly blue sweater vest. The gnostic archon himself, ghoulish, and slicing the room with his devious smile, hand holding, fist pumping and celebrating. Fruit slices and juice boxes, sitting still at his computer desk, wondering what he got himself into. The Texans brain trust selected quarterback David Mills, then wide receiver Nico Collins, then tight end Brevin Jordan, then Garrett Wallow, and then Roy Lopez. The Texans 2021 NFL Draft class came to an end. On this episode of Battle Red...

We have just returned home after going somewhere no one has ever gone before. Hang in here with me. Imagine looking at the draft order, thinking about the players available and each team's needs, and then selecting a player for each team. Crazy right? Completely original. Unheard of bizarre. Let's give it a shot. We'll call it a mockdraft. Damn we did it again. On this episode of Battle Red Radio, Matt Weston and his good friend Taylor mock the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft.

NFL free agency has kind of sort of already come and gone. The big dollars have been handed out. The big names have new homes. Sure, there will be stragglers, and there will be cuts to join the existing stragglers, but rosters are pretty much in place until the 2021 NFL Draft now. It's time to look back on what happened, in the easiest way, and most banal way to do so, by handing out imaginary awards. On this episode, Matt Weston and his good friend Taylor hand out awards from the first two...

After allowing Bill O’Brien to snip, then slit, then gut, and finally immolate the Texans roster, Houston brought in an actual general manager in New England Patriots super genius Nick Caserio. All of that brain power knows things the rest of the NFL doesn’t know. That Kamu Gruiger-Hill is actually an all-star coverage linebacker, Kevin Pierre-Louis is actually better than Jon Bostic and Cole Holcomb, that Terrance Mitchell is ready to break out at age 29, and Derek Rivers is more than just a...

We are three days away from crazy town. The NFL’s free agency tampering period begins this Monday. We say bookoo bookoo times as dollars are scattered across the country to pay for the services of the football playing men. In the immediate future teams will continue to snip and sniff and lick and create cap space, and call and call and call to try and churn veterans into picks, doing everything they can, to build the next great version of their current team, or try and keep the window open...

Sit down. Cross your legs. Hold your hands on your knees. Keep your back straight. It’s better if you keep your back straight. Yes, like that, that’s right. Now close your eyes. Keep your eyes concentrated on your forehead. Breath in, breath out. In, out. Focus on the breath coming in, and going out, at the tip of your nose. If that doesn’t feel beautiful, then focus on your diaphragm, in, out. That’s right. There you go. Now imagine that the Houston Texans are a football team again, not a...

#99. Navy and battle red. Iconic. This number, these jerseys, strewn across the city of Houston for the last ten years will eventually find its way sealed in Canton. Buzzed head. Dead stern look. Eventually sculpted in bronze. J.J. Watt. An all-time great, the greatest player in Texans franchise history, and one of the greatest, if not the greatest defensive linemen to every play the game. 20.5 sacks twice. 50 plus quarterback hits multiple times. Making fumble recoveries a skill. Showcasing...
