Is anyone allowed into the mini-camps like reporters etc. I doubt fans are, but I'm just wondering what sort of info we could expect to hear/see.

I bet Texans Chick will have a little bit to say about it and will keep us in the loop.

We are very lucky with the fans we have. Between Texans Chick stories and Bullpen (Andy) Photos pictures, we seem to be blessed. The only thing we really need the Chronic for is house training our pets.

All I'm saying is that Gibbs is a magician. I'm nearly as big a fan of the Texans as I am of Wake Forest. I lived in Spring from 01-03, and got hooked (so to speak). I just don't post much.

We'll all be watching the "evolution" of our O-line (and running attack) with great interest.

And then there's the DBs. We never really got a good look at Harrison or Mitchell last year. And we've added youngsters Molden and Barber plus Reeves and Ferguson. I want to see what the competition shakes out.

To shut down Dallas Clark would require better play at the SLB position, not the WLB position.

It could be a case where certain players are stronger on certain sides. Instead of making our best CB play all over the field, which let's the offense dictate where our DB will line up, the coaches might choose to establish that we have one part of the field well defended by playing to his strengths. Rare is the CB that can play both sides equally effective.

I'm not sure, but maybe this is the case.
