Keo, Mario Louis, Jeff Maehle, Grimes ( :( P-squad), Keenum (P-squad), Browner, Bryant (P-squad), Fanguopo (P-squad), Moore, Hunter, Loiseau, Carmichael (P-squad maybe), Nading, King, Iglesias, Jackson, Wallace, Brock, Bryant Johnson, Delano Johnson, Menkin, White

I think Pleasant and Carmichael make it.

I think Shelley Smith gets cut because Ben Jones showed he can play guard and center.

Keo & Ball are necessities. You have to cut them. I think Iglesias and Maehl go that's obvious.

After reading about Butler's injury, I think Menkin has a good shot of staying. Probably going to be one or two OT's on the practice squad.

I'm not sure if Menkin makes it or not. They played Gardner on the right side for a good portion of the night and Gardner HAD been playing LT. So I think they're grooming him for Swing tackle. I don't know if they go 4 tackles or not.

They also played Ben Jones at both C and G. And I thought he looked really good at G. I think that versatility is going to make it hard to make the team as a lineman. Especially with Holliday stepping up.

Jones playing that well at G made me think that Smith gets much more cuttable, and I think we need T's more than G's. It's an interesting wrinkle, and since Butler is going to the IR, a spot on the 53 did just open up so one of these guys is probably going to make it and we will lose 21 people and Butler now. This is kinda why I think Menkin makes it. We still have an inactive roster every game and as long as a player is inactive I think they don't lose games against their eligibility for the PS.

Case won't be on the 53. It was a cute story, but he needs some work. He'll join Grimes and Bryant on the practice squad. The other 3 spots are a crap shoot. Good chance Pleasant may be there with them.

You guys must not watch much CBs in coverage and/or game film.

Carmichael is rarely out of position, unlike Jackson, Harris, McManis...why? Because he diagnoses plays better on the onset. He's smarter, quicker and has the body size you need in this league. Moreover, his closing speed is a lot quicker if the WR gets a step on him, while, I might add, the way he turns his head and looks for the ball in stride is textbook. The way he uses his hands in coverage without drawing a penalty is just what you want. His speed is just as good or better than McCain's.

The only glaring flaw I see in Carmichael's game so far is his run support. K. Jackson has him beat on that facet of the game. Then again, I made it clear I was talking about a "pure cover corner."

While McManis might be a better special teams player than Carmichael, it's apparent that that's all McManis will ever be. His extended reps last night sort of showed that, yeah? Yeah.

I prefer to keep 5 OLBs though. OLBs make for good special teams players, it keeps the pass rushers fresh, etc. I would much rather be short at QB (carrying 2 instead of 3) because lets face it, if your top 2 guys go down, the season is screwed anyway.

They are not going to give a guy who is essentially in his rookie year the starting job considering where he was drafted in the 4th round behind Brandon Harris, though Roc looks better than Harris. The Texans have the luxury to groom now, instead of putting their feet in the fire like K-Jak.

I'm still saying he covers better than anybody on this team, right after J-Jo. Sure, Roc has things to work on, and sure K. Jackson should start; still, Roc's cover ability is only 2nd to 1.

I couldn't agree more. He was covering like a blanket, but wait, there's more...while being in his man's hip pocket he actually swiveled his head to locate the ball in flight. As much as KJ has improved I see Roc giving him some stiff competition.

While on the subject, as others have said, Ball needs to go away. TODAY!

Cutting Cody , Nolan , Dobbins , and Nading ?!! What you smoking ?!

After reading it, I had to go back and look again because I was sure I would be seeing Arian Foster and Brian Cushing in the list. :spit:

Ok, well looking at some twitter accounts, Case Keenum hasn't posted anything since August 27. Other people are reporting that he's cut.

Fangupo hasn't used his twitter since college.

Shawn Loiseau hasn't said anything today.

The Chronicle is being cited as the source of most of this info, and well they aren't always right. Could be a strategy by the front office to throw out some names as trade bait in hopes that a team calls asking about one of those guys.

She's verified it at the 2:00 press conference.

Ugh, did Keo really make it?

WOW. Alan Ball made it... Seems like Keo will make it and Pleasant is cut.

:rolleyes:

#Texans kept CBs Alan Ball, Brandon Harris & Roc Carmichael, giving them 6 CBs total

#Texans cuts: DJ Bryant, Hebron Fangupo, Jonathan Grimes, Case Keenum, Shawn Loiseau, Jeff Maehl, Moran Norris, Eddie Pleasant
More #Texans cuts: L Brock, K Browner, D Hunter, J Iglesias, M King, N Menkin, R Moore, P Supernaw, C Wallace, C White, OLB Delano Johnson

If my math is correct, and there is a real chance that it is not, there are still 6 unannounced cuts.

Wade Phillips, I have a feel I'll be a bit annoyed with you for keeping Ball on my favorite NFL team.

And Supernaw, you are quite right. 2 more cuts to come, unless I missed them.

This and Keo are going to contribute to Wade's trend of not being as good the 2nd year.

I have the 55 man roster as this so far:

QB Matt Schaub - T.J. Yates - John Beck

RB Arian Foster - Ben Tate - Justin Forsett

FB James Casey - Tyler Clutts -

TE Owen Daniels - Garrett Graham -

LT Duane Brown - Andrew Gardner -

LG Wade Smith - -

C Chris Myers - Ben Jones - Thomas Austin

RG Antoine Caldwell - Brandon Brooks - Shelley Smith

RT Derek Newton - -

WR1 Andre Johnson - Keshawn Martin - Lestar Jean

WR2 Kevin Walter - DeVier Posey -

DE J.J. Watt - Tim Jamison -

DT Shaun Cody - Earl Mitchell -

DE Antonio Smith - Jared Crick -

SLB Brooks Reed - Bryan Braman - Jesse Nading

ILB Brian Cushing - Mister Alexander -

ILB Bradie James - Tim Dobbins -

WLB Connor Barwin - Whitney Mercilus -

LCB Kareem Jackson - Alan Ball - Brandon Harris

RCB Johnathan Joseph - Brice McCain - Roc Carmichael

SS Danieal Manning - Quintin Demps -

FS Glover Quin - Troy Nolan - Shiloh Keo

LS Jon Weeks

K Randy Bullock

P Dahnte Jones

KR Trindon Holliday

Offense: 25
Defense: 26
Special Teams: 4

I think the next two cuts are Thomas Austin or Shelley Smith, and Keo or Demps.

Jesse Nading over DJ Bryant is a bit surprising. I think Keo is one of the two last cuts. Also I think Shelley Smith could get cut. Him or Austin.

Keo S-U-C-K-S as a safety. He makes me regale my younger friends with the stories of the great Matt Stevens.

However, he does bring very good value as a ST. I suspect Joe M was the one who wanted to keep Keo. Having said that, he is so historically bad at safety I would have cut him just on general principle.

Ball is horrible. I don't understand keeping Alan Ball at all. I'm guessing he has nude pics of Wade Phillips pleasuring himself while perusing the pages of Russian Man-Bride Magazine.

I am hoping that Ball and Keo go, but who knows. Austin and Shelley Smith are also weak links. I am guessing that 2 of those guys will be the cuts. Outside, very small chance at Weeks going, since word on the street is our new FB can long-snap.

What about Dwight Jones. Was he cut already or isn't he counting against the active roster?

He is a did not report. We hold his rights, but until he shows up he neither gets paid nor counts against the roster.

Keo S-U-C-K-S as a safety...

What he lacks in speed he makes up for in taking bad angles.

But you're OK with them cutting Tim Jamison?

Why? Or was that an oversight?

It was an oversight .... guess I was blinded by the silliness of those other cuts. :texanbill:

I'm thinkin Wade still has a soft spot for the Cowboys! B. James hasn't lived up to the hype either, but, I knew he wasn't gonna go anywhere.

Are you going to beat this dead horse all season? Demeco is gone. He isn't coming back.
