Thanks for the pictures!!! I would rather look at these than most of the sports on TV these days. I was surprised to see #37 out there... but I assume he still isn't doing much on the knee correct?

Go Texans! :redtowel:

Before I was skeptical about him playing weakside DE .... but dear god!

Hello Peyton, meet Mario Williams... what? don't want to go that way? ok, here's Peek, he'll show you around the grass, oh.... don't like him either?, Dunta will be here shortly then... BAM

those are massive bookends, they look like body doubles.

There isn't a #2 receiver on this team, just two number ones, I like it and can't wait.

Damn Mario is one big mofo. Moulds looks a lot bigger than i thought, i always thought he was a little leaner but he's built pretty solid much like Andre.

I can tell in the pics that Carr is looking at the field instead of the defenders when dropping back on the snap.


EDIT: I can't tell if it's Carr or Ragone......................


Moulds is friggin' jacked.
Peek scares me.

Babin looks bigger, too. Btw, I don't remember seeing Ragone, just Carr and Rosenfels (if he is #18). I especially liked seeing the receiver pics with David Anderson. This guy is like a Steve Largent clone. I saw him playing for Colorado State.

Awesome pix Andy - Thanx!!!

Man Mario is huge!!! - Is it just me or does it look like they dont have a jersey size big enough for him?? It looks like they put a childs shirt on him GEEZ!!! :superman: :redtowel:

I like those bookend Receivers too!! Moulds and AJ look like they are quickly getting on the same page - heck they could almost pass for brothers. Hopefully both will have solid healthy years ahead!!

DD's knee looked fine in the pix allthough he wasnt running drills he was dressed enough to catch balls on the field and do some running. I hope the delay is just excess muscle strain from him rehabbing to get ready for this season!

Come on August!!!! :bananasplit: :fans:

Thats what i've been wondering myself. I heard a couple callers on 610 yesterday discussing what was going on at practice too, speaking is if they were there watching. :hmmm:

If so, i'll be calling in soon and heading up to watch myself.

SS Michael Stone. Kubiak likes him. Brought up his name specifically at the luncheon a couple of weeks ago, so he's a guy to watch. (and if I'm Ramon Walker, I'm worried - or at least working a little harder)

Hey Andy...

Maybe you can enlighten us... you are pretty close to the sit down meeting at the end of practices where Kubiak is preaching... any chance you can share what Kube's is saying?

Don't want to get you in trouble so if you can't say, then that's cool.

Would be great to hear what Kube's is talking to the team about... or at least to know if it is more motivational, instructional, overview of the program... anything!

Great photos... My favorite is the picture of poor Kailee Wong working out with his rubber band.

I like the new practice uni's. It was hard to tell who was offense and who was defense with the old ones.

05-18-2006, 08:12 PM
I think Peek will be playing under a controlled psychosis this year, of which I'm fearful for the opposing quarterback or whoever else he deems as the enemy.

They also will need to update his info. That is not a 250 individual. I'm stoked on what he is going to do in this new scheme.

Well....I wonder how fooled anyone is after watching the same set of plays for 3 days. I think the defense has a big advantage right now.

For instance, most of the players are going 85-90% in these workouts, working on footwork, technique, teamwork, etc. A defensive end at anytime can just decide to work on his speed rush, kick it up to 100%, and blow by anybody. I don't think an "everyone should always go 100%" argument works here either - they aren't even in pads.

I imagine the fight between Smith and Flanagan the first day started out with one person going too hard for a practice with no pads, the other brought it up a notch, and pretty soon they are rolling around on the ground together.

They are still learning the new system right now, almost no one is showing all they have.



That being said, I'd be scared with Williams coming at me unblocked.

They keep us back far enough that we can't overhear much, but me and AJ (from Voice of the Fan) were close enough to here him being a little upset the other day about the scuffle between players. He said something like

I love seeing the fight in you guys...I just don't want to see the fights between you guys...

Since I didn't have this job last year at this time to see how Capers ran this, but from watching the training camp last year, it seems that the team is at the same intensity right now that they were in July and Aug of last year. If they can just keep building that up...I can't wait to see how intense they are at the start of the season... :drool: :drool: :drool:

Our two starting DEs, pretty nice size and nice athleticism for both of them, I think we will finally have a 40+ sack defense:

TEXANS84
05-18-2006, 11:20 PM
Every year it seems as if Peek adds an additional 10 lbs of muscle. Good to see the guys hit the weight room this offseason. Like everyone said...new coaching staff...every position is up for grabs. Impressing the new coaches is a must. Performing on the field is a priority.

Rosenfels on the 2nd team, Ragone on the 3rd team but I think Quinton Porter will overtake Ragone before mini camps are over with.

Andy, if you need an assistant or just a dude to lug around your gear I offer my services.
I shoot with a Canon 10D and have a Canon 70-200L. Not really long enough for all situations, but it works if I get close enough to the action... hint, hint... :)

BTW I'm 6'5" so's I can lug lotsa stuff and get some good high(er) angle shots for you.

I didn't know Putz had a beer belly like that...

Putzier, #89, has failed the test where you look at a player and say he looks like an NFL caliber player. Hopefully, his conditioning is not indicitive of his play.

Looking at the pictures, every one with Putz in the background, he looks like a slouch, disinterested, and certainly not a model NFL tight-end.

How much did we pay that guy? He certainly cashed his check and went straight to celebrate without remembering to hit the gym.

We could sure use him.

Now Peek, he could provide Putz some lessons on how to train. A monster!

I'm an NC State fan who just wanted to see what you Texans were saying about Mario since the reception on draft day seemed less than friendly. Glad to see that reception wasn't representative of the attitudes I see here. If Mario stays healthy (which was never an issue in college) you will be more than pleased. Texans Fan 80 almost had it right when he said Mario looks like a beast. Mario plays with too much intelligence to use the word beast, otherwise that assessment would be right on the money. I know I'm biased and he still has to prove himself in the NFL but at the college level Mario just may be the best defensive end I've ever seen (and I saw alot of Julius Peppers not too many years ago)

Looks like the starting d line in that practice was

Babins-Payne-Weaver-Williams

With the exception of Payne, that seems like a very fast d line. But, all of them have excellent burst of the line.

Mario has 7.9 percent body fat. He could put more weight on if they wanted him too. (Peppers as a rookie was at around 9 percent).

The thing that is nice to see in the pictures about him is how stout his legs are. Sometimes tall guys have a hard time muscle-ing up their legs, but his looked plenty sturdy from the picks. (As an aside, the guy has really long arms--for him to do as many bench presses as he did for combine stuff is pretty dang amazing).

As much as we have had the "Babin is fat talk" on the board, I don't see it. I saw the dude in person at the draft party, have a picture with him and he just looked like a fit dude.

Are you telling me you can tell Williams is ready for the next play because he has one fiist on his hip rather than an open hand, that no one else is ready because they have 2 open hands on their hips, and that Babin is gasping for air because he doesn't have his hands on his hips but at this side?

Well our defense can't really tackle very welll without pads. Actually, I'm not positive about this since obviously I'm not in the bubble with them, but I'd guess that they are doing some type of two hand touch so that no one gets hurt. That'd be one reason that no one is getting laid out. Some days you see pictures where the defense is constantly in the backfield, it just depends on the drill and the pictures that make it onto the website.

That's the nature of non-contact drills where tackling isn't allowed, the offensive player keeps running with the ball and gets tagged by several defensive players along the way so every play appears to be a 40+ yard gain when in reality it would not.

Actually he bowed his head due to him being safe rather than sorry for what he perceived as an epiphany in that Bennie Joppru was still on the field.

Anyone else notice that Alfred Malone is at the front.

That means he obviously is making a push for the starting D-Line because he's closer to Kubiak than Peek is!:rolleyes:

Maybe he's really really pushing to stay on this team, I hope he does.

It was sarcasm directed to people who over-analyze the photos and make outragous proclimations based only on the snapshot, I.E. my remark about Alfred Malone sitting closer to Kubiak than Peek because he was making a push for starting on the D-line.

For instance, taking oj's quote you could have said, "Your obviously wrong, Greenwood is still catching his breathe because he worked harder during practice than anyone else on the roster!"

Malloy

It clearly shows that our O line still has a way to go, since they would allow a defender to get to the QB to easily, and that Carr needs to work on his footwork. :)

Don't know if I am being Capitan Obvioso but that is a drill for kickers to work on getting underneath the ball so that it doesn't get blocked (or go extremely wide left with no time on the clock.)

As for the TE taking a dump statement. I am still dying of laughter but that is Center Mike Flanagan who is lined up in the TE position. Looks like Orr is giving him a pep talk (C'mon Flanny, one more squeeze)

They aren't waving bye to Casserly because if so two or three of them would be giving him the bird.

It is a nice picture.

But in full disclosure mode, I must say that part of this may be an illusion depending on what really happened.

During practice, the WR and RBs are required to run a certain length downfield after being tagged by the defense. If they don't, they get yelled at. Even if the WRs drop the ball, they are supposed to pick it up and run downfield.

Sorry if this is obvious to many, but I think it is interesting if you haven't watched a practice before.
