Oh what a night! Texans triumph in Las Vegas | Daily Brew


Cal and Hannah McNair, along with Head Coach DeMeco Ryans were smiling ear-to-ear the entire evening, and the promise of good times ahead seems limitless.

Let's start with 'Dre.

He was the only offensive player in the 7-man class. (Devin Hester also got in, and he caught some touchdowns as a wide receiver, but Hester was recognized mainly as a return man.)

The ceremonies are the first weekend of August in Canton, Ohio.

Moments after he and the class were introduced, he went 1-on-1 with Steve Wyche of the NFL Network.

John McClain has long been the Houston voter for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and he was along for the ride on the day a few weeks ago when 'Dre found out he was headed to Canton. Check out the behind-the-scenes story by clicking HERE.

Voice of the Texans Marc Vandermeer and Team Analyst/Radio Sideline Reporter John Harris reflected on 'Dre's big night in the podcast below.

If you weren't lucky enough to watch him play, here's a nice reminder of why Johnson is headed to the Hall.

Before Johnson and the Hall of Fame class were revealed, Stroud and Anderson won their respective rookie of the year honors. It makes the fireworks of Draft night last April all the more brilliant, and it's exciting to think what the future holds for that duo and for the franchise.

It's awesome to watch this video below, knowing what we now know, 10 months later.

Stroud was the choice on 48 of 50 ballots, and the video below is a refresher why.

Anderson's win, meanwhile, meant the Texans became just the fourth team to ever take home both rookie awards in the same season. Last year's Jets, the 2017 Saints and the 1967 Lions are the only other ones.
