The problem is three of them are injury prone. If we can keep Arian Foster, Andre Brown and Alfred Blue healthy we should have a top five rushing offense in 2014. That would help our unknown quarterback situation a lot. A strong running game and dominating defense would net us an 11-5 or 10-6 record and an AFC wild-card berth regardless of our quarterback play. Assuming it's not so horrible a la Matt Schaub and his pick six burgers last year. All we need is a game manager. Which I believe Tom Savage and Ryan Fitzpatrick can do. Even Case Keenum if he's not asked to throw it a ton.

True, but we're not gonna cut our top 3, are we?

surprised about supernaw, i figured he'd at worst be a helpful camp body at the tightend and fullback positions. i wouldnt have penciled him as part of the 53, but would've kept him to or through the first cut.

I was hopeful of Supernaw developing well. However, when he suffered a stress fracture of an unidentified bone of his foot, the prognosis was not able to be determined.........much like the question that I have of Ques, who we don't know what fracture of the foot he sustained.........a favorable prognosis break like a Jones fracture, or another type that would lead to chronic problems and/or susceptible to re-fracture in a big man (like Yao Ming)

As big a part as TEs are going to be to our offense, I didn't expect this either.

However, I can see why they decided to go this way, next to Whitney he's the only player with a name more bad ass than our QBs...

I just don't understand how some one can watch Greg McElroy & J.P. Wilson manage that Alabama offense & still call McCarron a "game manager" in the same ilk. He was more like Russell Wilson than Trent Dilfer, clear as day.

Maybe not good enough to take #1 overall... I understand that, but I thought we cleared that hurdle a long time ago. You want to take Bridgewater, Manziel, or Bortles in the first fine... I never argued against that. But when you get to the second, third, fourth, fifth... I think it's hard to do better than A.J. McCarron. At least with the information available to the general public.

I thought Quessenberry had a knee issue and Brennan Williams was the one with the serious (knee/foot) injury that may not be able to play again. Man that's not good to hear about Quessenberry. I was counting on him taking the RT spot.

Quessenberry had a broken foot that he sustained in training camp last year. Hopefully he'll heal up fine and be ready to make some major contributions next season. I saw somewhere last week that he's supposedly added some weight and was doing well in OTA's a week ago. B. Williams had the knee injury that required micro-fracture surgery and I've got serious doubts that he ever plays a down for us. I even heard on 610am last week that Kubiak almost cut B. Williams last season due to the injury, so you know it can't be good. I'm hoping that Newton heals up and is better able to play because an injured Newton sucked last year.

If Baltimore is smart, they'll have Kubiak on such a short leash he'll have to punch a time clock every day. That guy should have less power than the stadium janitor.

Yes, but I don't know how much anyone can make of that since he was working out only on the SIDE FIELD. That's a little disconcerting as it was a noncontact injury and it is so very long following his foot fracture........way longer than a period you would still be cautious if it were a straight-forward fracture with the fracture in a relatively innocuous anatomic area. We'll just have to see when he once again places repeated heavy stresses on that foot over a long period of time.

94 players by my count if including all the UDFA's. Is it a minimum or maximum of 90 players at training camp?

Does anyone think we'll cut Tom Savage & try to land him on the Practice Squad?

BigBull
05-15-2014, 07:04 PM
I don't. I think he was OBs target all along and will be the second or third string qb to start the season with a chance to start anywhere from 4-8 games this year. All this depends how fast he picks up the offense.

When was the last time a 4th round pick made it to the practice squad? We lost a 6th round NT because we tried to get him to the PS just last year. A mid round QB would have to fail hard in preseason to not be poached from the PS.

totally agree but never gonna change some folks minds. He should be able to sit a while @ Cincy and adjust. Couple years and he could be a very good starter. Anyway time to move to next crop.

The thing this 'general public' learned through various media outlets that he sucked in the interview process and it turned a pile of teams off. No specifics, just that he interviewed really badly.

A few here (https://www.google.com/search?q=mccarron+bad+interviews&rlz=1C1TSNO_enUS499US500&oq=mccarron+bad+interviews&aqs=chrome..69i57.28688j0j7&sourceid=chrome&es_sm=122&ie=UTF-8) and Mike & Mike had a segment on it as well.

That, or they just thought he sucked in general. idonno:

CSN Houston @CSNHouston

from S.I. (http://houseofhouston.com/2014/07/22/houston-texans-release-two-sign-one/)

The Houston Texans have released FB Brad Smelley (http://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/S/SmelBr00.htm?utm_campaign=Linker&utm_source=direct&utm_medium=linker-houseofhouston.com) and DL Tim Jackson (http://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/J/JackTi20.htm?utm_campaign=Linker&utm_source=direct&utm_medium=linker-houseofhouston.com), and have signed TE Chris Coyle.
With Smelley’s release, rookie FB Jay Prosch has become the team’s main fullback.
The Houston Texans actually signed Tim Jackson and cut Chris Coyle on June 18th, and have now reversed the transaction.
Coyle signed with the team after the draft but was cut during OTA’s. He will wear #85.
Neither of these moves too relevant in the grand scheme of things. Coyle will have a tough time making the roster with Garrett Graham (http://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/G/GrahGa00.htm?utm_campaign=Linker&utm_source=direct&utm_medium=linker-houseofhouston.com), Ryan Griffin (http://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/G/GrifRy00.htm?utm_campaign=Linker&utm_source=direct&utm_medium=linker-houseofhouston.com), and rookie C.J. Fiedorowicz all ahead of him on the depth chart. Neither Jackson nor Smelley were expected to make the final 53-man roster.
The Houston Texans will have their first Training Camp practice on July 26th.
