Wow, the NFL doesn't even follow the Texans.
 
I just got the NFL.Com Newsletter-Houston Texans Edition in my e-mail. I was pretty surprised to see this in the first line...

''The Texans newly installed 3-4 defense got punished by the Steelers in their second preseason game''.

For some strange reason, I was under the impression that the TExans were running the 3-4 for the last two seasons. :crazy:

JustBonee 08-26-2004 08:53 PM

Maybe they got confused just because it looked like it was newly installed against the Steelers. :rolleyes:

For more insightful commentary about the Texans you should check out Chris Carter's take on the AFC South. They have Babin listed as a DE, and he mentions that he must improve the rush of the D-Line.

Quote:

Houston Texans (Last season: 5-11, t-3rd)

Players to watch: Outside defenders
It's hard to pin it on one player, but collectively the Texans need production from their ends. This includes needing immediate help from their two first-round draft picks. Defensive end Jason Babin and cornerback Dunta Robinson are the keys to developing this young defense. Can Babin and the D-line create enough of a rush to help Robinson make big plays and take teams out of their passing game? That is what Texans coach Dom Capers likes to do.

Burning question: Is the third year the charm?
How much has this expansion team learned in its first two seasons in the NFL? The Texans must improve their protection of franchise quarterback David Carr. If the offensive line struggles for much longer, Carr won't have a bright future. He has taken a real beating over the past two seasons. Capers and the Texans have made an effort to put together a group that can protect Carr better than it has in the past, which shouldn't be hard to do.

Bottom line:
The Texans have gotten better, but they have the misfortune of playing in one of the most competitive divisions in football. Coach Capers and the organization are moving in the right direction, and the team has the full support of the city of Houston. But they are not ready to move into the second or third position.

Did they mention anything about the teams sitting the following players
Domingo Davis
Andrew Johnson
Gilbert Walker
Jonathan Willis
Jason Barbarino

Real pro's aren't they?

Blake 08-27-2004 09:09 AM

Gilbert Walker, now he was a good pickup.

V Man 08-27-2004 11:05 AM

Is that Jason Barbarino the cousin of sweat hog Vinny Barbarino. Any if so can they get in touch with Horseshack for me. :yap

I was wondering when we acquired Domingo Davis. I sure hope he doesn't play running back because that spot is taken by Dominic Davis. :cool:

Aww dang, Dominic Davis got replaced by some guy called Domanick Davis on the roster... :boxing:

One positive: I just watched NFL Live on ESPN and when evaluating fantasy wide recievers, they picked Andre Johnson as the sleeper of the year. Sounds good to me

Hey, mine was just a misspelling. That other name was a whole different name. But good one anyway. :thumbup

JustBonee 08-28-2004 08:06 AM

Double D is looking great! So hope that he can stay healthy for the whole season.
After watching last night's game, Mr. Excitement is a good name for him too.

BIG Robaire
 
Hey there Texans since I live in Michigan and cant seem to get to much info on the Texans Im wondering how my DAWG Robaire Smith is doing. I thought I heard that he missed the 2 a days. Just wondering from Flint Michigan. :headbang:

Check out this little snippet from the latest EPSN the Magazine:

"The NFL's Newest Retro Trend Is...

The 3-4 Defense. Five teams will use the 3-4 defense as their base this season, which may not seem like a big deal until you consider this: three season ago, this scheme was practically extinct. Then the Pats won two Super Bowls in three years while occasionally using the 3-4, and the copycats went on the prowl. Now the Pats, Texans, Ravens, Chargers, and Steelers will make it their every-down scheme, while the Raiders and Jets will mix it liberally into their game plans."


How many ways could we pick apart one paragraph?

Blake 08-30-2004 07:16 PM

"Significant additions: Robaire Smith, DT; John Wade, T; Jason Babin, LB; Dunta Robinson, CB."

ol John Wade :)
