One of the more compelling storylines of the 2019 season has been the resurgence of Whitney Mercilus. The Houston Texans took a big risk when they traded away Jadeveon Clowney but they got lucky because Mercilus has really stepped up. Through two games he has 8 tackles, 3 sacks, 1 interception, and 2 forced fumbles.


Proving Mercilus is finally getting back up to the speed he was at before tearing his pectoral in 2017. Last year that injury was lingering a little bit but now it’s clear this guy is good to go. One other thing that’s somewhat surprising is J.J Watt has been a little quiet this season. Houston needs him to get going and be Mercilus’ wing-man. So you can begin to see how much the 29 year outside linebacker (Mercilus) means to this defense. He’s taken it upon himself to be the tone setter for this group. Clowney’s gone that’s fine. Watt hasn’t recorded a sack that’s fine. Someone has to step up and make a play. Up to this point Whitney Mercilus has shown that’s not a problem for him and it’s good to see him turn the clock back. This is actually the final year of his contract and obviously there’s a big opportunity to cash in if he can continue playing at such a high level.

  5. One other thing I would like to mention is that as opposed to trying to suit all your online degree courses on days and nights that you conclude work (since the majority of people are tired when they go back home), try to find most of your sessions on the week-ends and only 1 or 2 courses in weekdays, even if it means a little time off your end of the week. This is beneficial because on the saturdays and sundays, you will be more rested plus concentrated upon school work. Thanks a lot for the different tips I have discovered from your blog.

  8. I have learned some points through your blog post. One other subject I would like to express is that there are various games on the market designed specially for toddler age small children. They involve pattern recognition, colors, family pets, and models. These often focus on familiarization in lieu of memorization. This helps to keep little ones occupied without sensing like they are studying. Thanks

  9. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Kudos

  10. I like this site very much, Its a very nice berth to read and receive info . “Words are like leaves and where they most abound, Much fruit of sense beneath is rarely found.” by Alexander Pope.

  12. Excellent post. I was checking constantly this blog and I am inspired! Extremely useful info specifically the remaining phase 🙂 I deal with such info much. I used to be looking for this certain info for a very lengthy time. Thank you and good luck.

  13. Hey there! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a collection of volunteers and starting a new project in a community in the same niche. Your blog provided us useful information to work on. You have done a marvellous job!

  14. Along with almost everything that seems to be building inside this specific subject matter, all your points of view are actually rather refreshing. Nonetheless, I am sorry, because I can not subscribe to your whole strategy, all be it radical none the less. It seems to us that your opinions are not completely rationalized and in fact you are your self not really completely confident of your point. In any event I did enjoy examining it.

  15. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I came across this in my hunt for something concerning this.

  16. I have been browsing online greater than 3 hours today, yet I by no means found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty value enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the net will probably be a lot more helpful than ever before. “When the heart speaks, the mind finds it indecent to object.” by Milan Kundera.

  17. My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on various websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

  18. Next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesn’t fail me just as much as this one. After all, Yes, it was my choice to read, however I truly thought you’d have something helpful to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could possibly fix if you were not too busy seeking attention.
