Texans-Falcons Final Score: Another Loss, Another Blowout, Another Swap At Quarterback

For the second time in four games, the Houston Texans have played two different quarterbacks in one game due to poor play, leading to a 49-21 blowout at the hands of the Atlanta Falcons. Get the recap here. Texans 21, Falcons 49 With one second left in the game, the Texans had the ball on the 17-yard-line. Brian Hoyer, in relief of Ryan Mallett, threw a short pass to Cecil Shorts, III. He took the pass one way, another way, futilely looking for away to bring the score a little closer before the close of the game. The red jerseys of the Falcons swarmed him and knocked the ball loose, with 0...

Panthers vs. Texans: Ryan Mallett will start at Quarterback

The news broke on Wednesday that the Houston Texans are preparing to roll with QB Ryan Mallett over Brian Hoyer going into their week 2 matchup against the Carolina Panthers. Well the wait is over. The Panthers know who they are facing week 2 at quarterback. Earlier this week Bill O'Brien would not name a starting quarterback after a week one loss where they fielded both Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett (after benching Hoyer). Hoyer finished the game 18 completions out of 34 attempts with a touchdown and two turnovers. Ryan Mallett looked a little better in a small sample with 8 of 13 and one...

Will The Houston Texans Bench Brian Hoyer For Ryan Mallett After One Week?

By a significant margin, Texans fans wanted Ryan Mallett to win the starting quarterback job in Houston. Bill O'Brien went with Brian Hoyer instead. After Hoyer's egg and O'Brien's comments after the loss to the Chiefs, there's a real chance the Texans make a change after Week One. Texans fans sound off. I don't see any need to rehash exactly how bad Brian Hoyer was in his debut for the Houston Texans yesterday. I will, however, note that he got very little help from his offensive line (especially Jeff Adams, who was simply horrendous). Additionally, the interception Hoyer threw ON THE...

Chiefs v. Texans Final Score: Hoyer Gets Pulled In Awful Debut, Texans Drop Season Opener In Ugly Fashion

There are very little positive takeaways to be found in the Texans' first game of the 2015 season. Final Score: Texans 20, Chiefs 27 Before a starter was named, Bill O'Brien often seemed offended when the media (and fans, by extension) questioned the quality of play to be expected by either Brian Hoyer or Ryan Mallett. After a rough start for Hoyer, hopefully O'Brien now understands why. Hoyer completed 18 of his 34 passes, threw a touchdown and an interception -- on his very first throw -- and also lost a fumble. Justin Houston and company made life miserable for the Texans offense who set...
