Default Re: Texans Inside MiniCamp NFL Channel

thanks for the heads up Wayward on the mini camp show. I've been wondering when our turn was coming.

maybe there will be some good video of our draft picks and the 7 on 7 drills watching Schaub should be good to watch as well.

Default Mini Camp On Nfl Network

I watched the mini camp series last night on NFL Network and I know not everyone was able so I will give some updates.

Overall it seemed that the network showed alot of our second stringers but the few times they showed the first string they looked good

I saw Jacoby Jones make several good catches deep down the field, he only dropped one that I saw. Matt wastes no time to get rid of the ball, when his back foot hits he is throwing. they showed some 7 on 7 drills and the defensive end was coming down on him boom to the outlit like it was nothing. He seemed to know where everyone was which was nice to see.

On the offensive line with the first string I saw Flanigan and Sallam running (sorry if i did not spell right). I was wondering about Black.

On defense i saw Amobi next to mario wich kind of surprised me i thought they were going to split them up. it is hard to tell much about the defense with out pads but everyone seemed to be flying to the ball. Clark was running with the second team, and i could not tell who was on the weak side. i believe it was orr on the strong.

Kevin Walter has good hands i saw him pluck a few balls out of the air on stride. Come to think of it everyone i saw was catching on full stride Matt has great touch and accuracy from what i can tell. Kevin does seem a little stiff to me not real krisp in his route running. i am no coach or anything and i know he is a big guy. He went across the middle a few times and looked great.

I also saw owen daniels grab a nice Ball on a tight end streak again in full stride.

as a whole the team looked good and i did not see to many mistakes. they all look like they are working hard and they seem to know there assignments from what i saw at least.

Any way hope i was able to give sompeople some insite if they dont have NFL Network.

Go Texans

Default Re: Mini Camp On Nfl Network

Ya, I tend to agree. I think I might have missed some of the WR stuff, but overall I agree. I am going to repost here what I just put in the HPF thread as it fits here as well -

I watched the NFL Network mini-camp special on the Texans last night, and I rewound a few of the plays to check out who was in there, and also to watch both the defense and the offense. It's hard to concentrate or focus on both sides of the ball at once. Mckinney was definetely working at first team LG, and Salaam was for sure at LT. I have no idea where Pitts was. It might have simply been an excused absence, so I don't want to read too much into it, but I don't recall seeing Pitts anywhere.

A couple of real quick observations, and take it fwiw, because I saw a handful of plays without pads via the TV, so lol, it's not worth a lot - but here is what I noticed - It's apparent that Schaub gets rid of that ball in a hurry, and knows where he is going with it. On one play, two guys were really pressuring him, and he quickly found his checkdown and delivered it on target. Once he plants his back foot, that ball is gone. I see very little in the way of indecision on his part.

Green looks like the real deal, and had a couple of nice plays where he made one cut and was gone. Dayne and Gado also had some nice plays. I couldn't really see the WR's real well, but they did run a reverse for Jacoby Jones, so look for that somewhere down the road.

On D, it looked to me like Omobi has a really quick first step. It's hard to tell for sure with no pads, but I think he has a very bright future. I still saw Mario get tied up and not dominate and just be pushed out of the play, but again, no pads, so let's see what happens. But, Okoye definetely looks to have a quicker first step.

Lastly, they had an interview with Schaub. A really nice moment was when they asked him what the strength of the offense is. My jaw dropped open when he said the offensive line. He was really pumping them up, and saying what a a great unit it is, and that he is looking forward to working with them. I LOVED the way he came off at that moment. I hate to use the L word, but that was real leadership. Instead of tearing down the unit, he was really lifting them up. This line is going to want to block for this man! That 30 seconds was worth the whole hour to me, and was worth the price of admission.

very nice

Schaub = Brees

see no reason why the Texans cannot match the Saints turnaround last season this team finally seems to have its leader with enough talent to push for

I know you had a disclaimer about no pads, but wanted to add that they technically aren't allowed to do any pushing as all this is supposed to be no contact.

When you practice without pads the Offense will always look better. Defensive linemen apply a little pressure but basically let the offensive lineman block him most times when they're running drills without pads on. That's just how it is.

Exactly--it is all about knowing assignments and nothing to do with physical confrontation.

Okay, makes sense. I think we need to see him in some pre-season games at full health to get a better idea of what kind of progress he is making. I am with AJ though. I don't see Peppers in him. He doesn't have that kind of suddeness or first step. If anything, I see a poor man's Reggie White, who was an inside presence and then some. I could see him being a dominant DT with some bull like collapsing of the pocket. Can you imagine Williams and Okoye at full maturity at DT. One using his quickness and first step to penetrate, and the other serving as a giant bull with great speed to close on the QB or ball carrier. Unreal. Never happen though, because you aren't going to spend the #1 overall on a DT, and it would be a PR disaster.

I noticed they had Charlie Anderson running with the first team defense. Perhaps it was a reward of sorts for his work during the offseason or perhaps Barber wasn't available on that day.

I noticed that myself. I think it was obvious that Orr was out of sorts in the 4-3 last season. Isn't Barber going to be more of a passing situation LB?

Man, you said a mouth full. I watched the show last night and after seeing Matt it was hard not to get excited for the upcoming season. I know that we're just in June and a lot of guys look great in practice and choke in a game. But its nice to go into camp and the season with a sense of unfettered optimism. Dude's got great touch on the football and I actually saw him complete some stuff over the middle. Can't remember the last time I saw that.

I was so shocked that I pooped myself a little bit. Great moment, though. Great moment.
