Monday Night Football
Houston at San Diego 9:20 pm CDT ESPN

Opening this as a game week thread for news/quotes/cheers/chatter or whatever.

I don't care who opens these throughout the season -- there's no mojo here like the gameday thread.

Cierre Wood #41
Deepi Sidhu ‏@DeepSlant 1m
Wood: Kubiak was the primary reason why he chose @HoustonTexans. Coach said everyone had an equal chance to make team, no favorites.

Wood: Was called by the Redskins. Didn't like their RB situation. "I felt like this was the perfect spot for me." @HoustonTexans

Wood: Daughter Braelin is about to turn 2 on September 29. Was the first person he called, even though she can't talk yet. @HoustonTexans

Wood says he is playing to take care of his daughter and family. "I could care less about me." @HoustonTexans

Wood: If I was hurt, you don't know it. If I was tired, you wouldn't know it. (on playing to feed his family) @HoustonTexans
Tania Ganguli ‏@taniaganguli
Wood said he tried the same stiff-arm he made in Dallas on Brian Cushing and Cush "almost broke my arm off." #Texans

"Not getting drafted, that was really, really saddening to me," Wood says. Said he thought the Cowboys were going to draft him. #Texans

Teo handed him the phone once to talk to his girlfriend. Wood took the phone, said hello, thought nothing of it. #Texans

Cierre Wood says he gets asked about Manti Teo constantly. Was his roommate at Notre Dame. #Texans

"College is different. You can make a lot of cuts and make things happen. This is not college by any means," Cierre Wood. #Texans

Wood said the way he played the night before took some burden off his shoulders. #Texans

"I still can't really believe it." Cierre Wood on making the team. "... I'm shocked every day that I wake up." #Texans
AJ Bouye #34
Dave Zangaro ‏@DZangaro
Bouye said his dad yelled when he told him he made the team. Said he thought his dad was the only person who really believed in him. #Texans

"I learned my lesson." Bouye about his celebration on the star in Dallas. #TexansTalk

A.J. Bouye said he couldn't sleep Thursday night. Stayed up watching ESPN.
Daniel Gotera ‏@DTGoteraKHOU
Bouye chose the Texans over San Diego, Philadelphia and Arizona. He has a grandfather that lives in Houston which helped the decision
Tania Ganguli ‏@taniaganguli
Bouye says the toughest receiver to cover besides Andre is Keshawn Martin. Said Lestar Jean's routes are "different" and tough, too. #Texans

A.J. Bouye says he picked the #Texans because he has a grandfather in Houston and knew he had a good chance of making the team.

Bouye thinks his 4.5 40 time hurt his draft chances. Ran it at his pro day and said he was hurt that week. #Texans

Justin Tuggle #95
John McClain ‏@McClain_on_NFL
Justin Tuggle went to Kansas State as QB and moved to LB last season. Could have helped K State not blow opener on Saturday.

LB Justin Tuggle made Texans like his dad Jessie Tuggle made Falcons: undrafted FA.
Deepi Sidhu ‏@DeepSlant
Tuggle: Grew up watching his dad (LB Jessie Tuggle) at training camp. Knew this is what I wanted to do. @HoustonTexans

Tuggle: When I came in, I was rotating with 3rd team. It took a lot to get where I am. @HoustonTexans

Tuggle played ILB in 4-3 defense. Says his versatility in being able to play both the outside/inside probably helped him make team.

LB Justin Tuggle: "It was a big day for me and a big day for him." (on sharing the news of making the team with his dad.)
Willie Jefferson #54
John McClain ‏@McClain_on_NFL
Willie Jefferson went to Baylor as WR and he was moved to DE. Texans moved him to OLB in 3-4.

Jefferson reported at 233. Now he's up to 248 and he's 6-5. Got to eat 5 meals a day. Now he eats 4 meals to try to keep weight on.

Drew Dougherty ‏@DoughertyDrew
"This is a southside fade."- Jefferson on his hairstyle, which he's worn since 9th grade. #Texans

Jefferson: "I had a little list ready," of people to call when he made the #Texans. His dad was 1st person he called.

Jefferson said he was w/RB Cierre Wood when he found he made the #Texans. They were staring at phone all day.

OLB Wilie Jefferson coming to podium now. Said he feels "blessed" to be a #Texan.
Tania Ganguli ‏@taniaganguli 10m
By team meeting time, Jefferson hadn't gotten a call or been told he was cut, so he went to the meeting and figured he made it. #Texans

On cut day Jefferson tried to stay away from the coaches. If they couldn't find him, they couldn't cut him. #Texans

Willie Jefferson said he & Cierre Wood sat in their hotel rooms staring at their phones Friday. Both undrafted rookies made the #Texans

Whitney Mercilus #59
Tania Ganguli ‏@taniaganguli
"What I'm looking forward to is making a lot of plays, showing why the Texans drafted me. ... Why I belong in the NFL," Mercilus. #Texans

"They can't just focus on one person if we have edge pressure," Mercilus on getting more QB pressure from the outside. #Texans

"I'll be able to produce double-digit sacks" Whitney Mercilus #Texans

"I thought it was just a cramp. Kinda sucked. ... It was actually a grade 1 straing." Whitney Mercilus #Texans

Question to Whitney Mercilus: You ready to go? "For sure." #Texans

Reed in pads for first time as Texan (http://www.csnhouston.com/football-houston-texans/talk/reed-pads-first-time-texan)

“He came out today and ran around with his shoulder pads on,” Joseph said. “You know that’s a start.”

Whether Reed plays in a week on Monday Night Football against the Chargers in San Diego to open the season still remains in question.

Gary Kubiak said last week that the Texans will probably make a decision about Ed Reed’s availability for the Week 1 opener on Monday or Tuesday. Reed’s secondary mate still doesn’t know if he’ll have a nine time Pro Bowler lining up next to him at safety, or Shiloh Keo.

“Obviously the head coach has the final say so in those things,” Joseph said. “So I’m just waiting to see.”

Gotta start somewhere... http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e316/Soizic22/a%20smilie/laugh-1.gif

For those of you who might not know much about Wood, he was suspended last season for two games although Coach Kelly never said exactly why, some intimated booze but what I was able to find out was MJ more than likely. I really like this kid and thought he turned it around once on field last season. Kept his pie hole shut when another started. Here are some tidbits for your consumption:

ihatemistate - Aug 28, 2012 at 9:45 AM
"First of all, NEVER underestimate your opponent. All this “we’ll be fine without Wood for the Navy game” is really stupid. Second, I am really getting sick of ND players getting in trouble and acting like bustouts. After reading Cierre Wood on twitter, it’s no surprise. He thinks it’s cool to talk and SPELL like a gangsta. Hard to believe he’s a college senior, let alone at ND, and if anyone deserved to get expelled it was Tommy Rees for fighting with a police officer. He doesn’t deserve to step foot on ND campus after that."

vegasmark - Aug 26, 2012 at 1:25 PM
Any insight on a reason for the suspension?

"Regardless of what one believes about weed, Cierre knew the rules and the consequences. If the rumors are true, this shows a lack of respect for Notre Dame, the coaches, his teammates, and himself. I hope he learns from this because life is long."

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/college-football/news/20130114/cierre-wood-to-declare-for-nfl-draft/


He can pack the rock and catch also, reminds me of Tate in size and skills.

Here is his stats:
http://espn.go.com/college-football/player/stats/_/id/480250/cierre-wood

Combine: http://www.uhnd.com/articles/nfl-irish/cierre-wood-solid-theo-riddick-injured-nfl-combine-13177/
Wood ran a respectable 4.56 40 yard dash which was good enough for 14th best among the 33 running backs that participated in the drill. Wood, however, was one of the top performers in the broad jump (124 inches) and the vertical jump (37.5 inches). Both of those numbers placed Wood 4th among all participants at running back.

With his performance, Wood likely solidified himself as a mid round selection. Where he could really have helped himself even more was in the interviews, but unfortunately no one outside of Wood and the teams he talked to know if those helped or hurt his stock and the questions teams likely had around his 2-game suspension and why he lost the starting job to Theo Riddick in 2012 after a 1,000 yard season in 2011.

Interesting article from pro day: He finished with a 4.52 in the 40, second only to receiver Robby Toma's 4.50. And he put up 18 reps on the bench press.

A lot of talk about what Monday will be like for Cushing today. Said he'll take a moment to soak it all in pregame. #texans

Injury updates: Ed Reed practices no one knows if hell play. Wade Smith said its not up to him if he plays. Working in parts of practice

Andre Johnson said the doesn't think that Ed Reed would be on the field if he wasn't feeling alright. But said only Ed knows if he's playing

DeAndre Hopkins practiced with team. Will play Monday. #texans

Can't stand the start time - both for me but even more for the players. I am probably over stating it a bit but I wonder if the late time could have a slight impact at the least.

I mean does it effect athletes that are used to exerting that much energy in the middle of the day, and now you are asking them to exert crazy amounts of energy at midnight (to their bodies) after being ramped up emotionally all day waiting plus still suffering from some jet lag???

I don't know but it's a legit question as to whether this constitutes an unfair advantage for the Chargers. To me, they should only have pacific or mountain time zone teams playing that late - both for the sake of the fans watching as well as the players.

Boooooo to the NFL.

More bad new for the Chargers.
This blogger definitely doesn't drink any koolaid; he's predicting a 7-9 season.

"The offense should be consistently less explosive".

"There's a chance that the season could get awfully depressing in a hurry after Week 1".

I'd love for someone to ask Andre, or maybe OD a question like, "Do you think Matt's foot will let you down again this season."

Yep, because as a member of the media who covers the team, nothing helps you do your job effectively quite like making the players believe you are a sneaky and misleading individual who's trying to trick them into saying something they might not want to.

I'm assuming that Swearinger will be playing the 3rd safety spot. He should be in that position all year. Why bog him down learning another position?

I'd rather see Pleasant start over Keo though.

Yes. Maybe after this year I'll believe we've built a true winning culture here in HTown.

But I was not convinced Kubiak could deliver back to back winning seasons & while I was thoroughly impressed with his coaching ability last season I'm still in the "show me!!" mode.

They're saying the right things & so far appear to be walking the walk.. but those three blow outs... like I said, anxious & scared, fingers crossed.

Darryl Sharpton had a concussion before the New Orleans game and is in the concussion protocol. #Texans

OC Rick Dennison said backup QB decision was tough. Said Yates & Keenum both "good kids." Competitive but root for each other.

#Texans are also still trying to figure out how long Quessenberry's recovery will be to make an IR decision.

Kubiak praises #Texans scouts for finding undrafted free agents who can make the team and coaches for bringing the best out of them.

Brennan Williams had microfracture surgery. Second surgery of this summer. (it's still summer in Houston) #Texans

Quessenberry and Brennan Williams had surgery yesterday. Non-contact broken foot for Quessenberry. #Texans

Kubiak said Wade Smith is fine, took the full load of practice and "made one heck of a recovery." #Texans

Kubiak said Reed will be in pads tomorrow to see how he does with that. #Texans

"Boy has he made a lot of progress," Kubiak said. Said Reed participated on a limited basis today. #Texans

LB Sharpton is unknown for Monday against #Chargers because of concussion. #texans

As was assume, Jared Crick will start in place of Antonio Smith.

Antonio Smith spoke to the entire #Texans team the Friday before he had to leave the team.

Brennan Williams has undergone microfracture surgery. Much more extensive surgery then he had this summer. #Texans

LG Wade Smith took a full load at practice today. #Texans

"There is some progress that has to be made to get him ready to go on Monday." Kubiak on Ed Reed. Added that he can't say it won't happen.

Reed said the injections he received in Vail take weeks to finish working. He said they'll be through the process by Monday. #Texans

Just like Watt still remembers the doubters from draft day, Ed Reed still has a USA Today story that said he was too small and slow. #Texans

Phillips gets asked about Cushing's rivalry with Watt. Reply: "Cush's got a rivalry with everybody." #Texans

I asked if Phillips is more inclined to listen to Reed's suggestions than other players. He said, Reed's are better. #Texans

Phillips says there have been a couple times that Ed Reed has made suggestions to the coaches and they've been good suggestions. #Texans

Phillips says Brian Cushing had his best practice today. He was surprised because he thought he'd be weighed down (by the money). #Texans

"I wouldn't have given him a shot early in the week. He's practiced more and more, feeling better. ...getting real close," Phillips #Texans

Wade Phillips was asked to compare Earl Campbell and Arian Foster. Says it's fun being on defense with both of them. #Texans

Oh also, Brennan Williams' microfracture surgery was on a different knee than his arthroscopic knee surgery earlier in the summer. #Texans

Keshawn Martin will return kicks and punts. Danieal Manning will, too, once Ed Reed gets healthy. #Texans

DeVier Posey will play a lot of special teams and have a play count. Kubiak says DeAndre Hopkins is in a catch-up period right now. #Texans

Kubiak said Sharpton is "in the middle" of the concussion protocol. Not at the end of it yet. Not sure what number exactly. #Texans

Kubiak says Joe Mays had a really good practice today. Says he'll only get better as time goes on b/c he's still learning #Texans' defense.

Kubiak calls Reed's progress exciting to see. #Texans

Ed Reed practiced more today than yesterday Gary Kubiak says. Says he thinks there's a shot for Monday. #Texans

Kubiak excused Myers from Dallas to be w/his son for his first surgery. Called to check in before and after. #Texans http://espn.go.com/blog/houston-texans/post/_/id/283/whats-in-a-smile-loaded-with-love-for-texans-myers …

"It's kind of 50/50 right now honestly. I couldn't say if I'm going to play or I'm not gonna play." - #Texans Safety Ed Reed

Ed Reed said he hasn't been out practicing with the 1's. said he did for a play or two and joked all the players were talking. #texans

Ed Reed said he's been asking Keo about the defense. Said that Keo should be playing on this team. #texans

Reed said the goal is to be on the field Feb 2nd. Not Monday. #texans

Ed Reed said he's day 2 day. Said hell be a game time decision. Added his injections take 2 weeks to wear off. That would be Monday.

"Ed really is on top of everything we do." - Phillips on how ready Reed is with secondary. #Texans

DeAndre Hopkins will make his first #NFL start Monday. Since 2006, 5 of #Texans 7 1st round picks started every game their rookie season.

In terms of when Manning starts returning kicks, Kubiak said it will be related to when Ed Reed returns. #Texans

Im starting to think the opposite. I think Ed WILL play but wont start. Do it to play with Rivers mind. First or second 3rd and long and Wade sneaks him on to the field. Im still convinced the final decision is Ed's and not entirely Kubiaks.

He wants to be good to go in week 3 and wants to knock off the rust. I guarantee he watched that game last night and wants to show up the Ravens for letting him go. Pride can make a man do some funny things.

I was crying about this in this very thread a few days ago, but nobody thought it was an issue.

Well... it is an issue, a big issue.

Shiloh Keo probably wouldn't make 20 NFL rosters and yet he's our starting Free Safety. I expect Gates to have a huge game because I'm pretty sure it's the FS's responsibility to cover the TEs that leak out.

I respect Wade because he obviously knows what's up, but is Keo really better than Swearinger? If he is, you gotta step your game up Swearinger!

I hate Shiloh Keo. With that said, nobody wants to hear my crying. Let's go Texans! Hopefully we put up so many points this is a moot point.

The thing to understand here is that unlike the pre Wade defenses, the roles of the safeties aren't as interchangeable as they used to be. Though we may show a lot of two deep looks, we rarely run two deep safeties (ala the Tampa 2).

Danieal Manning will play primarily man coverage on the TEs, Keo's job will be to roam deep & be that final line of defense... he's probably going to play that role better than Ed Reed as the old man doesn't have the range he used to have & he's not the tackler he used to be.

Swearinger is going to come in on Nickel & Dime packages, I think he's going to play that "smallish" LB that Quin used to play, leaving Manning to cover the TEs or play deep with Shilo.

Reed's value is his knack for making plays on the ball, for being in the right place at the right time. When QBs make mistakes & overthrow a ball, or lead a receiver a bit too much on the inside, they'll have to worry about Ed Reed fielding those balls..... they'll have to be that much better, that much more cautious. Maybe we'll get a few more turnovers than last year, maybe our OLBs will get that extra fraction of a second they need.

But to summarize, it has nothing to do with Keo playing better tha Dj. It's about wanting Dj to learn 1 position, & not 2. We expect Reed to eventually replace Keo.

Besides, can't be worse than Demps & whoever that other bump on a log was that came in on Dime packages. At least when Keo played, he didn't give up those big plays.

I can remember reading that Keo's father wept uncontrollably back in 2011 when he heard his son Shiloh was drafted by an NFL team, so you think there's any chance Keo's dad and family in the Seattle area will be watching Monday night when Shiloh gets his first NFL start and it happens on MNF football ?

New rookie HC, lost basically their entire LB core and secondary, as well as the majority of the DL and OL. Five of their WR's are injured or dinged up. Their current LB's are hurt, Freeney is trying to move to LB, the RB cant stay healthy and Rivers is coming off two bad years and at the end of his career.

Watching the video, I don't see Tate waving Foster off. I see Tate starting toward the sideline, then turning around and staying in. #Texans

Coach wanted carries to be more even between 44 & 23; still wants it close.

Foster declined to speak with media after the game last night. #Texans

Kubiak was asked about Ben Tate waving off Arian Foster when he tried to go in. Said he didn't see it, both guys are competitive. #Texans

Kubiak says Brice McCain got his knee banged up and is being evaluated today. #Texans

"I just called it & walked away. I'm just glad it worked. We didn't do anything w/it, that's what makes me mad" Kubiak on fake punt #Texans

Kubiak was pleased with the protection of Schaub given the situation the #Texans were in, having to pass that much.

Ed Reed is in the training room right now. "I think we're very close," Kubiak says. Still day-to-day. #Texans

"Want to keep it somewhat close," Kubiak on the distribution with the running backs. #Texans

Gary Kubiak is here. Antonio Smith is reinstated. David Quessenberry will go on injured reserve for the full season. #Texans
Drew Dougherty ‏@DoughertyDrew
4 of #Texans kicker @randybullock28's 5 kickoffs were touchbacks.

"He played extremely well. Was a big factor in getting to the quarterback."- Kubiak on #Texans OLB Whitney Mercilus.

Kubiak: ILB Darryl Sharpton will likely practice again this week. Still going through concussion protocol. #Texans

Kubiak: progress from S Ed Reed has been good. Could've given us some snaps last night. #Texans

"I want them to know how much we appreciate it." - Kubiak on #Texans fans in San Diego.

Kubiak: DE Antonio Smith will practice tomorrow and is off suspension. #Texans

Kubiak at podium now. "We've been going 100 miles per hour since we landed."

Texans relatively healthy after game. Kubiak only mentioned Brice McCain (knee) is getting looked at.

"He played really good." Kubiak on Whitney Mercilus #Texans

"I just called it and walked away." Kubiak on the fake punt. #Texans

Kubiak said Andre Johnson has been running better after the catch.

Kubiak said he'd have rather had Tate and Foster have even reps.

The Bucs announced that they waived rookie DT Chris Jones. Was a Texans pick.

In one of his pressers this morning, Kubiak said he want's to get Tate more carries. Said he'll have to talk to Chick about that.

I took that to mean that Kubiak lets Chick manage that part of the game. I never really thought about it, but I didn't really think he was on the sideline saying, "Ok, it's time for Tate." or anything like that.

Matt was the only starting QB last year to go negative in rushing yards I believe.

Hard to have a positive rushing stat when all your rushes are kneel-downs.

I'm not expecting anything from Schaub in that regard.

It's hard enough for him to get positive yardage without kneeling down. :lol:

Well when you execute victory formations so many times, that can screw up your yardage and ypc numbers
:D

Edit:
Damn, TPN beat me to it.
