Default Eric Winston on the Texans, Alex Gibbs

Ever since I had the opportunity to have lunch at the team luncheon with him his rookie year, I've been pretty impressed with Eric Winston. Sometimes you meet with players, and you don't see much going on behind the eyes. (no, I won't name names). Winston obviously has some snap.

HT.com just posted an interview with him, and it certainly is yet another thing to get you hyped for the upcoming season.

Link to video with some thoughts over at FanHouse:

RT Eric Winston Discusses 2008 Texans, Line Guru Alex Gibbs: 'He's Awesome'

He says more than the awesome part. He talks about how Gibbs is generous with his information, and wants the linemen to understand what they are doing, not just act like robots (speculative hmmmm, maybe a very veiled reference to Sherman??? It took an injury to get Winston on the field his rookie year--it's pretty clear that Winston is a bit of a non-comformist--not a bad teammate but he just has his own mind about things.). Talks about the playoff expectations, some things about his teammates that played well coming off of the practice squad.

It's just nice hearing him talk about these things. Gives you a sense of him.
