How David Johnson’s lofty goals for 2020 could have a domino effect on the Texans offense

Texans RB David Johnson told the media he wants to silence the Hopkins trade haters. Johnson has some very ambitious goals for the 2020 season. He told Bleacher Report that he wants to have a season where he rushes for 1,000 yards and also has 1,000 yards receiving. In 2016 Johnson had over 2,000 yards from scrimmage, so he's been close before. That year he rushed for 1,239 yards and had 879 receiving yards. Be sure to watch the video as we discuss Johnson's big goal for the season, and how a year like that would impact the Houston offense.

The Houston Texans have been busy interviewing coaches over the last few weeks, and just this week, the team held second interviews with Giants OC Mike Kafka and Broncos DC Ejiro Evero. The Texans have also interviewed Los Angeles Rams tight ends coach and assistant head coach Thomas Brown, Sean Payton, Lions OC Ben Johnson, Eagles DC Jonathan Gannon, and Eagles OC Shane Steichen. Johnson has taken himself out of the mix and is returning to Detroit.

But according to a new report from Ian Rapoport, the Texans may already have their minds made up about their next head coach.

Former Texans linebacker and current 49ers DC DeMeco Ryans appears to be the top candidate for the Texans, and he is reportedly interested in the position, with a second interview likely to take place next week.

Ryans has been the defensive coordinator for the 49ers over the last two seasons. San Francisco was the best defense in the league in 2022.

Ryans is a popular pick for the position in Houston, and fans will be super excited if he eventually gets the job. Let's hope Rapoport's sources are correct, and the Texans have their new head coach lined up.
