  • Kubiak had a presser today. Announced that Spencer's going to start of on the PUP list, that really sucks, I was hoping to see him on the field. Kubiak says he's coming along fine, but it's a precautionary measure.

    • Hell yeah there's a bandwagon, been one since the old days of the Texan tri-pod. lol. Anyways, jump on right now before we really blow up.

      • Ey Shiver, what's happening with Jimmy Williams? That's gotta suck, first Vick and now last yrs. rookie. Oh snap and Warrick Dunn getting hurt too. Man that's gotta hurt. Glad you joined us though. So at least there's something positive.

        • As far is McCardell is concerned I view him as more of a bonus now. We have enough at WR to be successful if everyone steps up. I hope he signs with us, but if he doesn't I wouldn't be too stressed.

          Moulds finally signed. With the Titans, man that makes me sick.

          • IF Jacoby Jones steps up as a good #2 then I'm comfortable with what we have. Maybe I'm a pessimist but I just don't have much faith in Kevin Walter. McCardell would be great to have, he's a proven vet with a lot of experience.

            I see us being stronger defensively than offensively this season (ranking wise), what do you guys think? We still have question marks at safety, and corner until Fred Bennett gets out there, but our front 7 looks really good. On offense we've got a ? at 2nd WR and our O-line. I expect fewer mistakes than the Carr era, and certainly more ballsiness.

              I don't think we are terribly strong on either side of the ball. We could be good on offense depending on how Ahman Green does. We got a pretty good TE in Owen Daniels and 'Dre is the best player we got. If Spencer was healthy I'd be pretty optimistic about our offense. Oh ya then there is Schaub. A lot of it lies on his shoulders as well.

              As far as defense Mario and Demeco will both be better this season. I don't expect Amobi to contribute right away but who knows.

                Yes, you are pessimistic. KW was barely utilized last yr. due to Moulds, but when he was used all he did was catch the ball and move the chains. The guy runs good routes and has great hands. We worry so much about our #2 opening things up for AJ, but AJ being doubled gives our other guys that much more opportunity to shine. Safeties cheating over to whereever AJ's at will open a section of the field to exploit, Walter did a good job of this last yr. and if anything the guy should just keep improving. He's not a speedster, but guess what that's why we got A. Davis and B.Johnson, though I don't think either will beat KW out for that spot. Our WR unit as a whole is solid.

                Of course our Defense is gonna be better than our offense, I mean how can you think otherwise. Our defense is shaping up to be a dominant force. Ranking in the top ten defenses during the last half of the season. With all the additions we've made and a yr. under their belt they should be very studly. While the offense I think will be good I think they won't be as good yet because they are still meshing. The line however will improve I think, they've had time playing together now and should see the same line-up this season. With their improved play and Schaubs quick decision making our offense may not be where it needs to be, but it'll be alot better than last yr. I mean c'mon when was the last time we had a proven back like Green? Exactly it's a rhetorical question.

                Go Texans!!

                • Oh, man here's some more good news. Mario has been identified by Kubes as one of the 3 hardest working players this off-season. A side effect has been that he's slimmed down to 280 lbs. Imagine what that does for his quickness. Also add that he's going to play solely one position. The guy should have a monster yr. and I can't wait to bear witness.

                  • Adding to the good news, we just signed McCardell to a one yr. contract. He's getting 820,000 this yr. and 40,000 dollar signing bonus. Boo-yah.

                    • Oh and this time it's not a rumor. lol.

                      • Sweetness, good to have McCardell on board. I read about Mario losing weight, he should be quicker off the edge.

                        For our O, I'm also skeptical about Walter. He's not a big play threat, and really doesn't have that much experience. Sure, he hustles a lot and is a tireless worker, but that doesn't mean he will be a great player on the field. At least McCardell gives us another veteran. In 2005, this guy had 900+ yards and a bunch of TDs. I'd rather have him start and then Walter come out of the slot. Jones should rotate in there as well. Then we have our speedsters, Andre' Davis, Bethel Johnson and Jerome, who has reportedly looked great. I'm intrigued to see who makes it out of that group. And then there's David Anderson, a good STer who I'm hoping will make the squad. Walter will probably be taken off STs if he starts and he was a big time player there. Charles Spencer can't play till at least Week 7, but Salaam should be able to hold it down if he stays injury free(last year he was always gettin banged up). I don't have the same confidence in Jordan Black. Eric Winston should improve in his 2nd year and hopefully will show some glimpses of what he was like his sophmore season at the U. Frye probably won't do anything this year. Pitts should hold down LG again. He gets flagged too much for my liking but he's a pretty solid blocker all around. I'm hoping McKinney starts at C. Flannagan was trash last year, showing up to camp overweight and that attitude clearly carried into the season as he was completely disgraced on several occasions. Kubiak mentioned Chris White, a former Packer, as a potential candidate for that position. According to Kubiak, he was the most impressive(or one of the) player at the OTAs. Drew Hodgon dissapointed in his first two seasons and wasn't much of a starter. I'm not much of a Fred Weary fan, he doesn't standout in any department, and I feel he could easily be upgraded. I'm hoping Studdard wins that job in the future. I think we're fine at RB, we've got good depth and a lot of different styles. Vonta Leach leading the way = big yardage and hopefully Jon Abbate can take Jameel Cook's spot as the backup FB. He was awesome this year as the captain of Wake Forest's D and I love the intensity and intelligence he brings to the table. OD should step his game up this year. Then there's the big piece of the puzzle, Matt Schaub. I hated the trade, giving up the value of roughly the 14th pick in the draft for an uproven player. He seems to be a good leader, I just hope he can keep that up with lineman knocking him to his back every other down. He's less mobile than Carr, so our line had better improve quick. Schaub should come out in the first game gunning. Big plays were really missed last year, he needs to come out with confidence and get some early.

                        On D, our line looks potentially very solid with a top rusher with Mario(hopefully), good inside forces in Amobi and Maddux, and a solid SDE in Weaver. Demeco is amazing, he makes up for whatever the other LBs can't do. Shawn Barber should be awesome for nickel packages. I would love for one of the corners(Kubiak mentioned McCleon and Von Hutchins as potential FS) switched so CC Brown could move to his more natural SS spot and Earl would only be a part time player. Fred Bennett should start midseason. He's got amazing upside. I think Jamar Fletcher was an underlooked signing. He's a former 1st rounder and can make some plays. Our D has a lot of potential. I'm excited to see it.

                              dude I was going to post this. Huge question if he cant stay or lose any weight what makes you think he will do it for the Texans. Is Sherman the GM/HC now too? I wouldn't want my gm or HC learning under Sherman.

                              • According to Pro Football Prospectus: Mario Williams was already a top-10 run defender, and while he didn't get the sacks had plenty of hurries.
