Brian Gaine: Texans trying to build football culture to withstand test of time

Texans coach Bill O’Brien said recently that he feels like the team is in a good place heading into training camp after going 4-12 last season and installing Brian Gaine as the team’s new General Manager.

Gaine agrees that the Texans have positioned ourselves well and now need to see some results from the work they’ve put into the team. He doesn’t feel the job is done, however.

Gaine has been on the job since January, which meant the team’s been moving at a rapid pace to restock the roster heading into the season. Changes to the organization go beyond new players, however. O’Brien and Gaine asked for improvements to the team’s practice facility, locker rooms and staffing as they work to shape the organization into Authentic Bob Gibson Jersey the one they want.

Mason, who will be an unrestricted free agent after the season, is an ascending player who could command a significant contract at a position at which the market has been reshaped with recent deals for Zack Martin (Cowboys) and Andrew Norwell (Jaguars). Signing him after the 2018 season will be a challenge, and so trading him in this hypothetical situation to a team that could use an upgrade at the position would fall into a similar category as what the Patriots previously did with the likes of Chandler Jones and Richard Seymour.

Freeman is accustomed to being a lead back. He was a four-year starter at Oregon Womens Bill Barber Jersey who finished his career with 947 carries for 5,621 yards and 60 touchdowns, plus another 79 catches for 814 yards and four receiving touchdowns.

I think I showed durability and the ability to be there game in, game out, Freeman said. I think I showed at Oregon I can deliver the blow as a runner. I’m excited to compete, and we have a good environment in the running back room. I think we do want to see each other do well.

Last year Anderson finished with 245 carries for 1,007 yards. The Broncos would be thrilled if Freeman could replace that production.

The stress of stopping the puck with a game on the line is no sweat compared to what young goaltenders deal with waiting to be taken in the NHL draft.

Even the best goaltending prospects usually have to wait through the first round and then some before their names are called. Top-rated Olivier Rodrigue went through that this weekend.
