Ughhh....my heart just skipped a beat. Hopefully it will turn out to be minor injury and he'll be OK. I hope this is not a sign of things to come. I do understand it's a part of camp, but I'd love to come out of this scratch free.

This sucks. Hopefully he is only knicked up a bit and will just miss a few reps.

exactly what I was thinking, I dont wish in jury on nobody, not even on other teams (except hanesworth cause of the comments he was making about Shaub being scared etc, but he got his late last season against us and is still paying for it this year bad knee) Chris got a lot of heart and his teamates like him so hopefully he will be fine, I just dont want no more injuries to our back end cause that will just give more leverage to Dunta, I guess they will be more inclined to promise a non franchise next year

Lets hope this doesn't lead to him missing any significant time.

This is always something I worry about when you hear players have put on significant more weight to stand up to defenders better. I just read yesterday that he had gained 15 lbs to hold up agains tthe bigger NTs in the league. Sometimes the body can't handle that extra 15 pounds as well as it could the original weight.

I think Caldwell will be a nice player for us, but this line held up together for a full season last year and the players really played well as a unit. Center is an important position. Heres to a fast recovery

I've been a critic of Myers for a while now, but this is not the route I wanted to take in order to replace him. Caldwell isn't ready, it'd be White next on the depth chart, I reckon.

BUT, let's hope Myers will be okay and be ready.

I'll echo the thoughts on being a critic of Myers last year,but I don't think Caldwell is ready just yet. They did play well as a unit last year and I'm suprised to hear Myers put on the extra weight. Shoes me he wants the starting spot bad, I like that.

Don't want to get into an extended discussion on Dunta in a Chris Myers thread but, once again Dunta has NO leverage whatsoever. He either signs the one year Tag tender or continues to sit out, lost money, and lose a chance for other teams and this team to see he's worth the bloated contract he's demanding. Personally, I think he wants out of Houston.

Get well quick Chris!

As a couple of people have pointed out, we shouldn't count out White. White has been with the team from a couple of years now and, as I recall, got some pretty good reps in the 2007 season. Before we brought Myers in, there was a lot of talk about him as a possibility to upgrade the center position.

Either way, this is a chance for someone to step up.

Watching the kid play the last few days allows me to say he is not ready yet. That said I have seen progress from the young man already. He has been working as the 2nd team OC while White was worked at Guard. Now the injury to Pitts' has changed the reps and that may have do do with White playing guard

790 reported that when Myers went down he started screaming in pain before he fell. Was holding his ankle area.

They also said Kubiak was the most pissed off they've ever seen, saying the goalline plays were the sloppiest he's ever seen

ObsiWan
08-04-2009, 02:55 PM
well I got the answer to one of my questions from John McClain (http://blogs.chron.com/nfl/2009/08/kubiak_rips_players_after_morn.html)...



I've seen Gary Kubiak chew out players on the field. I've seen him jump on them off the field. He does it when he believes they deserve it.


I hadn't seen Kubiak go ballistic about his players until after today's morning practice. He was fuming becaue he considered it a terrible practice. He thought the players were sloppy and that center Chris Myers' injury in which a teammate rolled on his leg could be attributed to sloppy play.

After each practice, Kubiak gathers his players and coaches and other team personnel around him in the middle of the field. He let them have it. Then he did the same when he met with reporters. I imagine this means they'll have a spirited afternoon practice.

Light 'em up Kubes. Sloppy teams don't make the playoffs. ...and we should know.

Guess I'll have to wait until this evening to find out the other answer... ...who stepped in for Myers.

Hope Myers is alright but it doesn't sound good hearing about the scream. I read he put on 10-15 lbs and I was looking forward to seeing him in action.

On another note, is Kubiak angry because both sides of the ball were sloppy today or did the defense get the best of the offense again? I keep reading about how well the D is looking and I wonder if Kubiak is expecting the offense to cruise a bit more easily?

I've been a Caldwell-soon type guy but this isn't how I wanted it to go. Myers is a decent enough guy to play I just think his game has a big hole. Hopefully Caldwell can shine in this opportunity. He's got as much shot to step in and do well now as any rookie.

I hope all is well, ankle injuries are tough on the big fellas.

Maybe on calls but I'll go with my broken record , throw down answer . If you can play at a high level in the SEC ... you can play .

Caldwell play well for the Tides, but he did not play at a high level consistently to be a starter in the NFL yet, from what I saw he played at Alabama.

That line worked well because of Andre Smith and Mike Johnson (a Jr LG, Pro Football Weekly First Team All-American last year, pre-season All SEC this year) more than due to Caldwell, I am sorry to say.

The best SEC Center, IMO, might have been one of the Pouncey twins at Fla; he was a Soph.

If you watch enough Alabama football, you would hear the announcers often mentioning about their ability to run off-LG or off-LT.
The RT D. Davis was a Jr and was pretty good (team offensive player of the week twice, team Iron Man Award last year, Offensive Lineman Award in Spring game 2009).
The RG M. Davis was a Sr and played quite decent (got a couple of workouts for NFL teams, signed with the Browns but later left the team for some unknown reason).
And then, there was Glen Coffee who manufactured some yards on his own.
The other RB Mark Ingram wasn't too shabby either. Upchurch, too, until he got hurt.
Their QB was JP Wilson, a Sr with 3 yr starting experience.
He was a smart QB who can make quick decision.
He's not VY, but can be pretty mobile to avoid the rush.
They also had good receivers.
Watch for Julio Jones this year. Their TE Walker was also pretty decent. And the small WR Maze, too.
So Caldwell was helped a lot by his teammates.

The good thing is that he's still raw in techniques.
The sooner he can learn to improve his techniques (both hands and footwork), the sooner he can raise his game.
How soon, we don't know. But here's his chance!

Maybe White is all that. Maybe Caldwell is all that... I don't know.

I know Myers had issues, but personally, I would feel better knowing that we'll be building on what we did last year, than starting all over with a "new" center.

We're still developing on all 5 OL positions, with maybe the exception of LG. I don't think we need a new center now.

Nothing against Caldwell, but we haven't established a foundation on OL yet.

With Chris, I'd work more towards the short end, but that's just me knowing him. I had Chris in Denver, he had a high ankle sprain in Denver on me, when I think he was a rookie. That's one of the reasons he made our team, his toughness that he pulled off in that camp. I know we can count on Chris, but I can't put at timetable on it."

(on whether C Chris Myers' injury would require surgery) "No, all indications are to me that he's fine and that we'll rest it, rehab it and get him back out there."

(on any additional health news from practice) "(TE James) Casey got kicked in the shin, and (RB Arian) Foster felt his hamstring tweak so we pulled him out."

Interesting take here 76!

Something I keep wondering though, scouts like to project guys and don't always go by production necessarily, especially if all the "NFL tools" are there, specifically in respect to the ZBS. I would be more interested in how Caldwell looked in the zone-blocking plays rather than power-blocking.

The Tides run a mix of power and zone; more zone I'm pretty sure!

Some of the "tools" for a ZBS man is agility and quickness, and I'm not sure Caldwell has enough of those.

Now that he's off the books, he has a lot more time for those agility drills, and we'll see him improve in those areas, by how much, I don't know.

No offense, but this sounds like pure rumor to me. If Myers would have gained that much weight, I think someone (McLain, LZ, etc..) would have reported it. I have read reports on Adibi and Slaton gaining weight, Brown and Diles losing weight, but nothing on Myers gaining 15 to 20 pounds. If he did gain that weight, I hope it's solid muscle and he didn't lose any quickness. For now though, until I see something more substantial, I'm going to put this in the rumor file.

My memory has yet to fail me, LOL!

http://blogs.chron.com/fantasyfootball/2009/08/

*** I spoke with center Chris Meyers about how I thought he looked to be noticeably heavier this year as camp began and he told me he was 15 pounds heavier this year. His weight gain was definitely planned as he wants to be sturdier against the NTs he has to face this year (three in just the AFC East alone). He feels like he can really tell a difference with the added bulk and he did look to be sturdier when he battled DT DelJuan Robinson in one-on-one pass protection drills. ***

.....

The guys at Battle Red Dog says he's now listed at 299 lbs as compared to 285 lbs last year.

Myers does look thicker this camp, at least to me. People don't put on 15 to 20 lbs of "solid muscle' in any given year anyway (not that you are implying that). They may be 15 to 20 lbs heavier but its not going to be all muscle weight.

He put on a ton of muscle quickly.

My memory has yet to fail me, LOL!

*** I spoke with center Chris Meyers about how I thought he looked to be noticeably heavier this year as camp began and he told me he was 15 pounds heavier this year. His weight gain was definitely planned as he wants to be sturdier against the NTs he has to face this year (three in just the AFC East alone). He feels like he can really tell a difference with the added bulk and he did look to be sturdier when he battled DT DelJuan Robinson in one-on-one pass protection drills. ***

.....

The guys at Battle Red Dog says he's now listed at 299 lbs as compared to 285 lbs last year.

............

His OLD OLD Miami Hurricanes Bio had him at 300 lbs.

OK, LZ's statement is good enough for me! Not sure how I missed that one. :shoot:

Now I'm wondering how much he does weigh? He is listed on the roster at the Texans web site (houstontexans.com) as 293 lbs., both this year and last year. But you say they have him listed at battleredblog at 299 lbs. this year and 285 lbs. last year. :thinking: So basically he weighs anywhere from 299 lbs. to 308 lbs. this year. Got it! I think. :headhurts:

As I said before, I just hope the added weight will not slow him down. Have to be quick in the ZB scheme.
