We felt nothing. We spent the summer hunched over black mirrors, scrolling, and feasting upon the regurgitation of Houston’s local sports media, to gather as much information as possible, regarding our favorite football team. Competition, COMPETITION, COMPETITION. Kahale Warring’s biceps, forever whisked away as he faces the cold dead reality of the practice squad. Vernon Hargreaves III plucking Davis Mills time and time again. Deshaun Watson standing back as a scout team safety so the offense can align themselves to various defenses, doing something he hasn’t done since he was a freshman in high school. Imagining five running backs at the same time in a David Culley offense.
