Sports Spin’s 32 Teams in 32 Days: Houston Texans

Twenty-eleven was a watershed season for the Houston Texans.  Not only did they qualify for the postseason for the first time in their brief history; they won a game.

Maybe it’s because they don’t have a quarterback named Manning or Tebow, and they’re not the Dallas Cowboys, but Houston is flying under the radar in 2012.

The Texans are on my short list of AFC contenders, yet they haven’t received much national coverage this off-season.  Something tells me Gary Kubiak likes it that way.

The talent is overwhelming on both sides of the ball.  If this team can stay healthy, they should have no problem winning at least eleven games.

UTEP fans should get excited knowing former Miner Quintin Demps will get plenty of reps at safety.  The second time is proving to be the charm for Demps with Houston.  Demps was cut by the Texans early in the 2010 season.  He was signed midway through 2011 and contributed with 23 tackles and two interceptions.

Former KTSM sports anchor Javi Perez now covers the Texans for  Javi talked about the Texans and his recent freelance gig with Adam Carolla.
