AJ and Moulds. This is a backup battle although I think I read somewhere their 1st team or most of it may get 1 series or so.

I just got handed tickets to this thing so I guess I'm going to go watch the backups battle away. I'm actually looking forward to it. I want to see this "Chris Taylor Beast" I keep hearing about. I figure he'll shine tomorrow night and earn himself a place on the practice squad or, maybe even the regular 53 man roster. Who knows, stranger things have happened. Tony Hollings got paid for 3 years here and if that can happen then Chris Taylor can earn a roster spot.

I'm excited to see what unfolds at the WR position this game. We're now down to 7 WRs and theres lots of talent there. I'm guessing David Anderson gets put on the practice squad (then next year makes a Chris McKenzie type leap and competes for playing time) and Richie Ross gets cut, even though he really has come a far way so far and was left on the roster before Armstrong, so that says a lot.

And as you can tell, I'm excited to see Taylor get some quality playing time :yahoo:

Many of the starters are not scheduled to play. Pretty much anyone for whom there is a somewhat-guaranteed starter spot. Basically, the list of people who will play: some of the O-line, the DTs, some of the LBs, 3rd WR on down, and everyone else 2nd string on down should be out there.

I think Taylor is a lock for practice squad and still possibly a game role. After watching him shine early into camp, I am somewhat surprised he hasn't emerged yet past special teams. I'm also surprised to hear that Lundy is the projected starter at this point over Morency. IMO Morency just brings more to the table. But, JMO.

This game is usually for the guys on the so called BUBBLE. This is the make or break game for them. I expect to see alot of hustle in this game.

As is usual, the 4th preseason game is where the confirmed starters take a breather and let those who are fighting for a roster spot have all the fun. I will watch it for two reasons.

1) Because I love the Texans
2) Because I want to know which RBs will get cut.

Personally I think we will see Antowain getting the shaft since he cannot do KR, where as Taylor can. Dual positions are vital, as you all know. DD is a completely different story.

If perfomance of Lundy and Morency stay relative to their play in preseason (of course expecting proportionate improvement with time), I would expect that there will not be much difference in their weekly allotted playing times.

Smith will not be cut unless Kub intends to use a FB or converted TE for that tough couple of goal line yards.

I got tickets yesterday from work so I will be there tonight. I hope there is a good crowd even though it is the 4th preseason game.

I wonder if Carr will be out there for one series? I wouldn't be surprised, because the chance of injury is low and they may want to work with him on one or two things.

If not, I expect a good game because people are fighting for their jobs.

Guys, I don't think most of our starters are playing today. I have heard that Simms at least should be in for the first quarter for Tampa. Maybe we can win anyway, but unless we at least have some of our starting O-line this could get ugly.

I am being impressed with an outstanding performance by our 2nd teamers!

So far (30 minutes into the game) the second team is smoking tampa's 1st stringers. T. johnson is looking good and so is stone and Smith.

Rosenfels is really showing me something going against 1st stringers. I am a pro carr kind of guy- but DANG! sage looks good. Definatly a good qb. Carr should be feeling the heat (and responding with good performance, hopefully)

Touchdown Benne!!! go Benne, go!

Spencer and salaam are both looking good too.

Where u getting live stream from?

I'm getting it from NFL Field Pass. I paid for the season though, because I suspect that a lot of games won't be televised this year--another price to pay for going 2-14 last year.

Since I can't watch the game, and its only second stringers I haven't been keeping upi with the game. It looks like the OL is doing well. I saw someone earlier question whether C.Taylor or A.Smith looks better, which I obviously can't see, but stat wise here's what I see. By subtracting the long run out of each of there totals, C.Taylor has about 2 yards more per carry.

A.Smith: 66-46 = 20 yards/6 carries = 3.666 yards/carry
C.Taylor: 48-12 = 36 yards/6 carries = 6 yards/carry

His stats actually continue to get better

C.Taylor: 57-12 = 45 yards/7 carries = 6.43

Its a good question. I don't think he will ever see the field either way. So giving up the Draft pick is rough. Still I would rather have Pickett if one had to start tomorrow. I have no idea what Porter can learn as I have not been coaching him.
