You can call me crazy all you want to right now but I believe in Houston Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett. So the Texans get high marks from be for keeping him along with corner Kareem Jackson. This is a talented team so the couple of additions they made could take them a long way in 2015, depending on Mallett’s development.
