Jeff Tarpinian: Patriots culture vs Texans culture

In the upcoming weeks I’ll be sharing a bunch of interviews that I conducted in conjunction with our friends at The D10. The D10 is a decathlon of events that you’ve seen at the NFL Combine mixed with events that test your athleticism. The Houston D10 is on November 3rd at Rice Stadium so start training and fundraising because all the money raised is going to help out MD Anderson Cancer Center Children’s Cancer Hospital.

With NFL training camps winding down this week, I thought it would be fun to catch up with Jeff Tarpinian. Jeff was with the Patriots and Texans as a linebacker and was always a bubble guy come cuts time. In this interview, I talked to Jeff about how stressful training camp can be for bubble guys, making the Patriots roster, what exactly is the ‘Patriots Culture’, and then his time with the Texans including Bill O’Brien’s first year here as head coach.
