]']Frankly, I don't think Demeco has the size for MLB.......

compared to? jonathan vilma - 6'1", 230lb ... zach thomas - 5'11", 228lb ... donnie edwards - 6'2", 227lbs ... keith bulluck - 6'3", 235lbs ... nick barnett 6'2", 233lbs ... mike peterson - 6'1", 235lbs ... shelton quarles - 6'1", 225lbs ... gary brackett - 5'11", 235lbs.

or even, al wilson - 6'0", 240lbs ... D.J. Williams - 6'1", 242lbs ... ian gold - 6'0", 223lbs.

incase you're wondering, ryans is 6'1", 236lbs. the first group is the top 8 out of 10 linebackers for 2005. the second group is the denver broncos 2005 starting linebackers. please stop saying that ryans is too small, and pass it on to the national press which apparently have less of a clue than this 3 sheets to the wind local fan.

edit: bear in mind the last sentence, so if i misread something, i'll probably delete this post when i wake up.

edit: bear in mind the last sentence, so if i misread something, i'll probably delete this post when i wake up.I agree that Ryans is large enough to play MLB even though some of your examples aren't middle linebackers. I think Infantrycak posted a ton of guys who fit this mold as well. I'd say Ryans is ideal sized for todays MLB responsibilities if you want a 3 down linebacker. Teams use much more spread and 235-240 seems like is big enough to stop the run but small enough for the speed needed in todays quicker game.

Just amazes me that some people dont know about this guy and think he's 'Undersized'.... :boggle:

Awards:
DeMeco was awarded the Lott trophy - Ranked the nations Most outstanding Defensive player over Aj Hawk.
Named A consensus All-America First team selection
SEC's Defensive Player of the Year
MVP of the Cotton bowl
NCAA Top VIII athelete
Finalist for the Lombardi, Ngursky,

along with his academic stuff -
Graduated Cum Laude in 7 semesters
Bama's Amateur Athlete of the Year
Bryant Award winner
Finalist for the Draddy award


D"Wreck" Ryans was the standout player for the #2 ranked Bama defense the last 2 years and was named to several awards during his time at Bama. He was a finalist and ran 1/2 with AJ hawk almost the whole year for production on the field and almost all awards.

@ Bama he was - Team Captain, Lead the team in tackles setting a school record with 25 tackles in one game, and finished 5th in the schools history with 305 tackles. He is most often compared in production and skill to past Bama alums Derrick Thomas and Biscuit [Cornelius Bennett] and set several team records during his playing time at Bama.

Honestly DeMeco was my favorite pick from this past draft and think between him and Mario we will make some great strides in our defense being competitive and bringing the heat this year!!! :bowser: :fireball:

Come on August!!! :fans: :texans:

I'm glad you're not coaching. I was told this in a strategic management class "If I believe you can, you are more likely to succeed. If I believe you can't, you are more likely to fail (Capps, I think you read this board too)"

You know, Emmit Smith never had the size either

I keep reading that Ryans is too small so I just assumed he was. Looking at the list of players above it appears he fits right in.

I have a question I am a little embarassed to ask (as a draft geek I should know this one). What is the difference between "size" and "bulk"? The reason I ask is because I have also heard that Ryans needs to add bulk to play MLB. Is this the same as all the hacks that think he needs more weight to play MLB, or does it have something to do with strength?

size refers to measureables like height, weight, reach & overall frame build, while bulk would relate to how well/full that frame is proportion'ed & filled out :)

A 4-3 middle linebacker is more about attitude and smarts than size. Usually the leader of the defense and best tackler. See Mike Singletary, Zach Thomas, etc...

I think I am wrong.. I dunno.... Rookie at MLB. I'd put Terry Peirce in there or Cowart.

Terry Pierce :heh: He's going to have to improve a lot to get a roster spot. At MLB it's Cowart, than Wali Rainier, than Terry. Wali's was taking Cowart's spot while he was injured. If DeMeco was on that list he'd be right in front or right behind Wali, as of now. I see DeMeco getting a starting job somewhere in the LB corps by mid season, I just don't know if he'll be starting by the time the season starts. Cowart, Greenwood, and Orr are all solid LBs. He'll still get a lot of playing time throughout the season still, even if he is a backup.

Both are highlight reels so it's obviously the best both players have to offer, but I was especially impressed by Ryans' decisiveness. Ball carriers try to "freeze" defenders to add extra yards. Ryans was so quick to read the plays that they never got a chance to try. I know every play won't be like the highlights, but if the decisiveness is a common characteristic of his play he will be a beast....no matter what level he plays on.

Here's hoping DeMeco won't bite on one of Vince Young's patented pump fakes. I'd love to see Vince on the run trying the pump fake and getting leveled by Ryans.

It’s amazing how facts can be manipulated to “prove” a point!
Here’s an example of Houston being placed in a Power ranking of #32.:



Fascinating - Like a Train Wreck

32. Houston Texans - Unlucky last. David Carr was the most sacked QB in the league last year, going down 68 times. How does general manager Charley Casserly address this? By passing on the second coming of Gale Sayers, Reggie Bush - not in favor of tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson, mind you, but in favor of DE Mario Williams. By most accounts, Williams wasn’t even the surest defensive prospect in the draft (that honor belongs to A.J. Hawk). To make matters worse, LB DeMeco Ryans, drafted in the second round, has admitted to playing defense because he didn’t like getting hit as an offensive player. Tell me, does that sound like an appropriate mindset for a predatory linebacker on the grandest stage of football? Pay attention, you kids who dream of becoming GMs - this is a valuable lesson in how not to build a team.
Power ranking (http://www.steelersfever.com/editorials/0629.html)



Fortunately, I remember having come across this Ryans quote in more than one review.:




For those who have watched Ryans' career, it might be hard to picture him anywhere other than at linebacker. Interestingly enough, he started his career in the eighth grade - late for the average footballer - as an offensive center at Davis Middle School.

Ryans had attempted to play pee wee football sooner, but whenever his mother pulled up in the family van for tryouts, DeMeco would start backpedaling.

"I'd get out of the van and just turn back around," Ryans said. "I was like, `Nah, I don't want to play football.' I was actually scared of getting hit."

Of course the rest of the story is that Ryans eventually came to love contact, so much that he holds the school record with 25 tackles in one game.

And he's left behind a legacy that will last forever in the state of Alabama.

Just substitute Mel Kiper Jr.(or just about any draft "expert") for State Trooper...

Texas Circle Flies

A cowboy gets pulled over by a State Trooper for speeding. The trooper

started to lecture the cowboy about his speeding, and in general began
to throw his weight around to try to make the cowboy feel
uncomfortable.

Finally, the trooper got around to writing out the ticket. As he was
doing that, he kept swatting at some flies that were buzzing around
his head.
The cowboy says: "Y'all havin' some problem with circle flies?"

The trooper stopped writing the ticket and said, "Well yeah, if that's

what they're called. But I never heard of no circle flies."

"Well, sir," the cowboy replies, "Circle flies hang around ranches.
They're called circle flies because they're almost always found
circling around the back end of a horse."

The trooper says, "Oh," and goes back to writing the ticket. But, a
moment later he stops and says, "Are you callin' me a horse's ass?"

"No, sir," the cowboy replies. "I have too much respect for law
enforcement to call y'all that."

"That's a good thing," the trooper says and goes back to writing the
ticket.

After a long pause, the cowboy, in his best Texas drawl says, "Hard to

fool them flies though."

Heard all of those comments before on DeMeco and its pure tripe for the most part. A small sampling of the facts would easily disspell most of his points, but then again it wouldnt fill pages or sell magazines. Like almost every other sports writer out there - this writer glossed over alot of the positive facts in search of anything negative to focus on. As most people know "Bad news" sells papers and TV ratings, Good news is here today - gone tomorrow when it comes to most journalists and news programs. Thus one of the major reasons I dont watch much news in the last 10 years - its almost always bad news - every day - or an article with a negative slant. It's funny as you watch the news programs from around the world - the person reading the reports could easily be mistaken for reading an obituary alot of the time - Its almost the same facial expressions. The only 2 groups it seems even allowed to smile are the sports and weather folks. Its a shame and makes watching anything news related a real downer most times.

Love that joke - ROFL!!! - Cant fool the flies - They always know where the Shiz is - lol

Here's a prediction: Rookie DeMeco Ryans, the second-round pick, will be the starting middle linebacker against Philadelphia. The coaches love him. Linebackers coach Johnny Holland is working Ryans on the weak side and in the middle. He's ideal for the 4-3. He's got good speed and coverage ability. More important, he's smart. He looks like a natural. If Sam Cowart or DaShon Polk step up and earn the starting job, then Ryans can move outside. While watching Ryans every day it becomes more and more apparent that he's going to start from Day One. -John McClain

looks like Ryans is impressing more than just the coach's.

Actually I think it's because nobody has posted anything on Mario's forum. I posted a while ago, but it was erased to make room I guess. I think it's because the other guy has the most recent post that he's the one the page links you to. Man I wish the webmaster would update it soon, it was hella long before he got it off the ground and now it's taking just as long for updates. Hopefully that'll change when the season starts.

It’s a new situation, it’s a new fresh start, and I’m excited about it. I’m getting an opportunity to play with Andre Johnson, David Carr and those young players that I think are going to be great players. It’s just fun for me. I feel rejuvenated.

I tell the guys you have to come out everyday and work hard. If you want to play a long time in this league—or if you just want to play one year in this league—you have to bring it everyday. Everybody’s not going to get the same opportunities, you’re going to have first-round picks, you’re going to have guys drafted and you’re going to have free agents who aren’t going to get the same opportunities. They have to make their own opportunity, that’s what I tell the guys. I came in as a first-round pick, and I got a lot of opportunities, but I’ve seen guys that were free agents and make the team because they worked hard everyday.

Reading his blog..seems like a heads up guy (like everyone was saying)

For you Bama fans donít worry too much about that defense. Theyíll be OK. All of us who left didnít take our secrets with us, we shared them and it should show.

I finally get to sleep in my house...

Hope all of you guys are having a great summer. Things have been moving at a fast pace for me since training camp started. Training camp is needed especially for us rookies, but probably the best thing about it is when itís over. On Monday we broke camp which meant I finally got to sleep in my house and my bed last night. I was surprised that I didnít suffer through some hazing ritual during camp. I guess since we are such a young team the veterans didnít feel the need to require us rookies do something crazy.

After our last practice of camp we went to see a prescreening of the movie Invincible. Itís a great story of a guy who saw his dream of playing in the NFL fulfilled. As a player it gave me a better appreciation for being so blessed to be able to play this game.

A lot of you have asked what the biggest difference I have seen between the college and professional level. As every player before me has stated, it is a lot faster in the NFL. The hardest part of making the step up to the NFL is adjusting mentally. Because the game is faster it leaves little room for mental mistakes. You slip up and forget an assignment, hesitate on making a play or not know the situations youíre defending and theyíll bust a big play on you. Football is football, but transferring what you learn from the books on to field is a different story. Since I moved to middle linebacker I have had to learn even more. Itís my responsibility to get the calls from the sideline, communicate the calls to my teammates and watch for any shifts from the offense. Itís my responsibility to recognize when we need to adjust to something the offense did. So, learning to look for those situations, being sharp enough to recognize them and communicating quickly enough has been my biggest adjustment.

I appreciate all of you inquiring about my knee. It wasnít as bad as it seemed or reported. I must have gotten banged up a little in practice the day before and it swelled a little the following morning. The knee is fine now and not causing me any problems.

Weíll fly to Denver on Saturday for a Sunday night game with the Broncos. Like most in the NFL, game 3 will be treated almost like a dress rehearsal for the upcoming season. I should see quite a bit of playing time, hopefully into the second half.

For those of you who have asked about my favorite restaurants in the Houston area, I can tell you my choice so far is Houstonís. Itís a chain restaurant that serves great classic American food. I also like the atmosphere and watching them prepare your meal. As for my other choice, like in Alabama you can always find a good Chik-Fil-A.

Now that camp is over Iíll be checking in on a weekly basis. Be sure and sign my guestbook so I'll know who and where you guys are checking in from.

Have a great week!
DeMeco

Wow, he has a lot of responsibility, but it sounds he is going to handle it well. For all of the criticism the Texans have received for their drafts, I think they have done a great job of bringing in guys with great character, and DeMeco sounds tops.

I think I have said this before, but the kid writes real well. I guess unlike some jocks, he actually went to class. Seems like a real solid guy, not to mention a heck of a MLB.

They realize who they’re playing for and know what the University of Alabama represents. Class, Character and Championships, it’s what that crimson jersey is all about.

Until next week,

];367381']Frankly, I don't think Demeco has the size for MLB.......

You're right. In addition to all the other draft blunders, the Texans intentionally drafted someone who is too small to play the position he needs to fill.:sarcasm:

This too small thing is getting more than a little tiresome. On several threads there are lists of the starting MLBs in the NFL. Some are heavier some are lighter that Demeco. Of all the top line ones, he is within a + or - range of ~ 5lbs. Hardly makes it an issue, but just like herpes, some just keep spreading that he is to small.

The NFL announced today Houston Texans LB DeMeco Ryans was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week, becoming the first defensive rookie to capture the award this season.

Ryans, (6-1, 239), finished Sundayís 23-14 win over Oakland with 15 tackles (14 solo), an interception, a fumble recovery, a sack, a forced fumble and three passes defensed. Ryans became the first player in the NFL this season to record double-digit tackles, a sack, interception, forced fumble and fumble recovery in one game.

Ryans shared a tackle with SS Glenn Earl on the second play of the game, then proceeded to have 14 solo tackles during the rest of the game. Midway through the first quarter, Ryans shot through a gap to sack Raiders QB Aaron Brooks. The Texans defense would sack Brooks five times on the afternoon.
