History of the Houston Texans

The Story

The Houston Texans are one of the most explosive teams in the NFL today. Whether it is their high octane offense or their stellar defense, this team has become a favorite to win a Super Bowl. That hasn't always been the case. The team struggled early and the city even lost a team prior to being awarded the Texans. We are going to look at some of the major events in Houston Texans history. 

Reporting

The Texans have a major timeline on their website of historical events in their history. I have went through and weeded out some of the fluff to make the overall project shorter but to also keep it more focused on events in the past that have helped build todays team. I found it interesting that the site names the other proposed names the team could have been. Some of the content I am editing out involves trades the team made for players that turned out to not work out and hiring of coaching staff members. 

Separate the signal from the noise

This feeds into some of the items mentioned in reporting. I am going to eliminate news resulting to some of the players that are no longer around but keep some of the main points like the drafting of David Carr who was the face of the franchise for the early years. I will point out the acqusition of players like Matt Schaub from the Falcons and the drafting of Andre Johnson. I think it would be interesting to also point out all of the runnig backs drafted before Arian Foster. 

Collect data and assets

I haven't decided if I am going to use 3D in this spot or not. I like the cleaner aesthitic plus I don't want to have to attempt 3D modeling of certain players, coaches, etc. I gathered logos I will need, vector icons I may use and also images of players that I can cut out.
