Bayou City Headlines: Mike Vrabel Could Help Out Jadeveon Clowney


Unless you’re name is John McClain, you probably think the Texans are going to take Jadeveon Clowney with the first overall pick. There are some questions about Clowney’s potential fit in Romeo Crennel’s defense but Willie McGinest, former linebacker on a Crennel-led defense, says Clowney will have the best help possible in Mike Vrabel. The Texans linebackers coach, Vrabel was in a similar position as Clowney during his days in Pittsburgh. McGinest believes Vrabel can be a great teacher that can take him through that process.

Houston Rockets

People who have watched this team day in and day out would agree that Harden’s defense has actually come quite a long way but his struggles early in the year were so widely publicized that he has not been able to recover in the court of public opinion.  As with most things, there is a bit of lag time before public perception catches up with reality and some of the commentary on Harden is reflective of that.  He’s bad but not atrocious as he was earlier.

 

Houston Texans

Yet I think this season could be Foster’s best yet. In speaking with him, he sounded grounded and recharged. I wouldn’t be stunned if Foster were the most productive back in football this coming season.
