When the Houston Texans signed on to do “Hard Knocks” it was unclear who they were going to choose for their starting quarterback. At the conclusion of Episode 3, Bill O’Brien gathered all of the quarterbacks in one room.

Houston continues to be the very definition of a solid balanced football team.  They run and block well.  They have a capable game manager type in QB Matt...
