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.

Season outlook:
Quote:
"you can't just winning the games at home and then going on the road and not playing well. ...we gotta find a way to get over that hump... ...gotta hold court at home and play .500 on the road; maybe better."
Personal Goals:
Quote:
"I want to see us have a 1500 yd rusher... ...if its not one guy I want to see us get 2000 yds as a team..."
I like it!
Thanks T.C., I was about to post this myself.

I met Eric Winston at All Access his rookie year and was very impressed with how friendly he was with the fans. He ask me about my granddaughter's jersey, she had on a pink TEXAN one, said he wanted to get one for his girlfriend. He just smiled and chatted with her, she was nine at the time, and she still remembers him. Later, we were walking down the underground corridor and passed him. He stopped and chatted with us for a couple of minutes. I was blown away right then by his size!! That dude is HUGE!!! I liked his attitude then, and I like it now. He's becoming one of my fav TEXAN players.

I would like to tell you folks that Myers played very well in Indy!

And I always appreciate all the information about the Texans!

(No, Myers is far from God). But I do like our chance up there. Better get use to the winning feelings!
