HOUSTON -

After a hiatus, the Randy Mc blog is back!  How long has it been?  I know, I know..too long.  Been busy posting here on Click2Houston sports and the duties of football season and our shows.  Not enough hours in the day!

But, I'm back at it..with VIDEO links included today:

TEXANS UPDATE

Six weeks into the season all is well with our local squad that calls Reliant Stadium home.  5-1 record as of this posting  and there are plenty of wins still left out there . This is a playoff team, an AFC power and a legitimate Super Bowl contender if they don't lose anymore key players like Brian Cushing. 

Here's J.J. Watt VIDEO on losing to the Packers and looking ahead to the Ravens game this weekend before the Texans bye week.

The Texans concerns are getting the run game going. The numbers are down for Arian Foster but I expect those to improve as the OL gains confidence especially on the right side.  The secondary was torched pretty good by Aaron Rodgers and I expect the Ravens Joe Flacco to do the same with his receiving corp.

Longhorns basketball is coming to Reliant Stadium December 8 as UT plays a men's and women's doubleheader against UCLA.  UT folks, including Rick Barnes were in Houston on Tuesday.
