Default OTAs

Kubiak had some interesting things to say, including a reference to another Texan injury.

Quote:
(on DT Travis Johnson) “Well, I’m concerned. He’s missed a lot of time. He’s got the inflammation in the pelvic area, is the best way I can describe it. He’s way behind the team from a physical standpoint. Nothing he can do; they’ve had him resting. Before I put him on the football field, I want to make sure he catches up with his teammates conditioning-wise, so you’ll just see him conditioning at the time.”


(on where DT Travis Johnson’s injury came from) “Well, it’s kind of been something’s that bothered him before and then it crept up again back in February, early March. And we’ve tried a few different scenarios. He had an injection the other day that we’re waiting to see how he recovers from. He has felt better. He ran Friday, he ran today, so we’ll see.”
Inflammation in the pelvic area. Ouch.

Quote:
(on if T Charles Spencer will join group drills before training camp) “Well, what we’re going to do this week is kind of take him in the same pattern we did during mini-camp. He’ll do a little bit. At some point here, we’re fixing to turn him loose. I’ll let y’all know when that is, and then we’ll see how he responds.”
I'll believe it when I see it.

Quote:
(on if he has considered moving RB Chris Taylor to fullback) “No. I think you need a player that you think can maybe play a little bit of both spots when you go to game day because it helps you just suit so many players, but at this point we’ve got enough guys, so we’ll leave him where he’s at.”
Taylor at FB? He doesn't look anything like a FB. Did McFly, I mean McClain, ask that question?

The question was probably asked because of the RB numbers game and the fact that we saw Taylor get reps at FB during OTAs last year (with Leach and Cook healthy). Maybe they were just fill-in reps but they were reps and someone remembered it. Kubiak does a lot more with his FBs than simply lead blocking out of the I. There's probably a 'stupider' question out there that I could come up with if given a minute or two.

I like what Kubes said about Gibbs:

Quote:
“Well, he’s demanding. He doesn’t just coach his offensive linemen, he coaches everybody. He coaches the backs, the quarterbacks, he coaches me, he coaches the running back coach. He’s demanding on everybody for his run game to work, and that’s why it’s been successful.”
Im really pumped to see the running game September 7th at Heinz Field

Kubiak happens to think he looks like a fullback, at least he did last year.
Last year at OTA's

Quote:
Taylor to fullback?: Don’t expect to see it anytime soon, but Chris Taylor has seen time at fullback throughout OTA’s.

Kubiak noted the depth at running back after Tuesday’s workout and said Wednesday that Taylor could be a candidate to play fullback at some point in his career.

“I think Chris Taylor has the size that he can play that spot some, but I feel good about Vonta (Leach) and I feel good about Jameel (Cook) coming back and I like the way Joel Dreessen has been working there along with the young kid (Cory) Anderson so we have enough people there.”

But considering that Taylor finds himself in a dog fight for position on the depth chart behind Ahman Green and Ron Dayne at running back, his perceived versatility may give him an edge when the 53-man roster is announced come August.

“When we do practice we do work Chris in there a bit at that position,” Kubiak said.

BTW, when I first heard that Travis Johnson had "pelvic inflammation" I was concerned that he had a little too much fun on his honeymoon. But seeing that he started having the problem back in February, I don't know what to think....

Maybe it's revised code for anal fissure.

I seriously doubt there is or ever has been any connection between Johnson's pelvis and Matsui's anus.

Not that there's anything wrong with that..........

That Taylor might take some reps doesn't mean he's in for a position change. Taylor looks like a FB the same as Jameel Cook looks like a RB. And Cook actually had to play RB in an emergency situation, last season. Why not ask if Cook is being moved to RB?

Can't blame that one on McClain, he's still vacationing in France I believe.

Maybe they left the gates open and Justice snuck in.
