so now its officially my return now.......i am happy to be back, i hope the texans can get the ball rolling this year. Even though i dont expect them to win the SB, i hope at least for a solid rebuilding year. 6-10 would bea huge improvement for this team and that is my expectations this year. It took me a few months to get over the draft, but now i am ready to pull for mario williams!!!! LETS GO TEXANS!!!

I just want our first win against the Colts this may be possible without the "Edge" in the backfield. Oh yeah, I really want us to win the Texas State Championship also. I would also like to see AJ return to the Probowl and D-Rob make his first appearance. That would make this fan happy.

See, this is really getting on my nerves.

You are wrong.

We are not arguing over whose record will be worse. We are saying our record will be better then yours because we'll be better, and you'll be worse.

See, Titan fans are under the dillusion that both teams will be bad, Texan fans are under the delusion that the Titans will be bad, and the Texans will be good.

Stop trying to spread your delusions! :)

Training camp is starting to gain momentum.

The players are checking into the hotel around noon today. Then they do some miscellaneous stuff and have a meeting in the late afternoon. I wonder if the official depth chart is discussed then? If so, I imagine after that meeting is the earliest we'll see it on the web. After dinner they will put in some plays. Friday morning they'll show us those plays.

It will be good to have a new depth chart. I'm real excited to see if/how the defensive trenches might change over the course of the next few weeks. I don't believe the lack of hype from the press. This year is going to be a good year to be a Texans fan.

Volek has finally gotten his chance and is the undisputed starter for the Titans. He has waited a long time for this so I am excited to see what he can do too. I have one prediction for you all: Pacman will be a shut down corner in this league. He showed signs of greatness last year (along with signs of crappiness, but hes playing against the Colts twice a year). Pacman will make the Pro Bowl this year. Mark my words, the guy has insane talent.

Cool deal. Lendale should be a nice pick up as long as he keeps his s--- together. I know Pacman was good in college but I didn't really notice him last year. Who's the other CB? I hope he is good too. If not he'll be torn up if Pacman is going to be that good. Ask D-Rob and PBuch.:)

our other CB is reynaldo hill, 2nd year player out of florida (7th round draft pick)....he earned the spot last year the 2nd half of the season. He had two picks in one game and returned one for a TD. He might turn out to be a steal (he beat out a 1st round draft pick, Andre Woolfolk).....so atleast we arent starting two rookie CBs this year...

Don't know all the details, but I heard on 610 a few hours ago that VY signed a 6 yr deal and the guaranteed money was less than a million below Mario's guaranteed money! That's all I heard. Don't know anymore on the deal, but they were talking about Bush and how he should sign for something in the middle of the 2. They also said it was an awful big contract for the 3rd pick! We should hear more tomorrow I imagine.

Yeah it was big for a 3rd pick. From Foxsports.com:

"Young, the No. 3 overall pick out of Texas, agreed to a five-year deal, with an option for a sixth, with $25.7 million guaranteed and an overall value that could reach $58 million with option and roster bonuses and salary.

That would top the six-year, $54 million deal with $26.5 million guaranteed for the top draft pick, defensive end Mario Williams of Houston."

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/5820246

Why he has a chance to make more than Mario, I'm not sure, but that leaves the door open for Bush to ask for more.

It is for sure that Kubiak can beat Capers best record of 7-9, but I think an 8-8 will be fairly easy to achieve. WE have to find our new identity early though, because the first four will be tough. Of the 6 interdivision games, I think we can win 4. If we get hot and on a roll, and we don't suffer the old injury bug too bad, we could go 9-7, or with a break, or two, 10-6.:cool:

Had a great time. the weather was...comfortable. The facilities and personel were top shelf.

1. #49 had a very good morning blocked a punt, and made a very good bob block . Very nice to see, the coach, even though he made a good block...imedately got on him 'bout his hand placement on the block. I.E. it was a good block ..but it wasn't perfect.

2. #39...11 on 11 drills, AJ goes deep, #39 goes with him makes a great interception near the goal line. Balls out nice play.

Stone, the DB from Baltimore(?) looked very good. If one of the safties goes down...we're covered.

The guys you'd expect to be there are...AJ, Dante, Ryans, everyone looks in shape and...hungry. Peaks Orrs arms are amazing...high fives to the strength coach. Nice Job. Babins looks good. Peaks gonna have a battle to catch him.

Linebackers started a little sleepy footed but got in a groove as practice went on. Walters missed some plays but caught a very nice slant pattern at the end of 7 on seven drills. It's obvious that the timing is not there yet. Tight ends in 7 on seven drills looked very good. Gonna be some hard cuts at that position.

Spencer and Winston looked very good, but as everyone has said they are not there yet. Pitts looked very quick, and very angry...he reminds me of a man on a mission. The starting o-line looked in-sinc to me. Every running back had some nice runs. No tackling yet though so we really don't know yet. Morency has sucuirity issues. DD's Knee is OK. He was moving around very well and had spring in his step. Now how much water they drained off the knee this afternoon I don't know.. If he's there in my FF draft in the second..I'm drafting him.
Antion Smith doesn't have the gear left to hit the outside hole on the strech play. I love the guy, but...he's a short yardage, between the tackles guy ...only.

Salaam is a head of winston as far as I could see on the depth chart. I expect Salaam to make the squad. Spencer is a beast. Wand is the starter. But the monster hasn't reached self awareness yet. The guy is a beast.


Got accused of being anti TJ last week. So I'm not going to pick at that sore. I'll yeild to the opinion of others. Will say that's the first time I've ever seen a guy dogging it in the streching period. Mind boggeling.

The other thing that has me very concerned....All the QB's are targeting their throws. No one is looking off the DBs. Mind boggeling. I would of thought that would of been the first thing fixed ? Still early.

Noticed the eye in the sky was on the young guys and the tight ends.
Sorry I'm not as good as Texas Chick or A.J....
