Default More James Casey Please

I don't know about you guys, but I sure wish Casey was a little more involved in the game plan. Remember him in the Saints game? He looked great against the Titans and think he could do allot of great things for the Texans.

if we want to win in the playoffs, casey has to be a part of the gameplan. he's a better blocker than fans realize, but opposing coaches are well aware of the results when he leads. the most dangerous aspect with casey in however, is everything ... which is why we drafted him. tightend, running back, full back, receiver, lead, h-back ... that's a weapon that you scare the crap out of opponents with. we featured him this week for that very reason ... "we have james casey all over the field, what are you going to do about it?".

cant roll coverage to andre, a safety or linebacker needs to follow casey, (freeing up foster). casey leads right taking 2 linebackers with him (one cover, one following lead run) while foster sidelines left into a 49 yard cutback. casey sends a safety's helmet into orbit in search of dunta robinsons' from the goalline.

if we have success in the playoffs, casey will be a HUUUGE part of it. if we dont, i guarantee that his name isnt mentioned.

I think he's just now getting back to 100%. Something else for the Bengals to worry about.

Even A.J. was impressed...

Texans fullback James Casey remains a weapon: He’s not your standard fullback. The converted tight end started the Texans' first five games, then missed a couple with a chest injury and never got back ahead of the more traditional Lawrence Vickers.

But Casey’s really more of a pass-catcher than a blocker by nature, and the Titans did poorly in figuring out how to stop him from getting free for seven receptions on seven targets for a team-high 91 yards.

Casey helped get the Texans in range for one of Neil Rackers’ field goals with a brilliant catch, keeping the ball in the air with a left-handed tip before diving to collect it.

“We were lining up in different formations with different personnel, and as a defense it’s kind of hard to understand exactly what we’re going to do,” Casey said. “Because we’re not just doing base things. We’re motioning all over the place. They don’t know if I’m fullback or tight end. It’s tough sometimes for them to set their blitzes or their coverage. Hopefully you can get guys out of spots, out of gaps in the run game and out of their zones in the pass game and try to take advantage of that.”

Next week, with Johnson playing full time and Owen Daniels and Arian Foster back in the lineup, odds are Casey qualifies as only the fourth- or fifth-best receiving option when he’s on the field.

“James has some crazy hands,” Johnson said. “He’s probably the guy I’ve seen make the most one-handed catches. His hands are very, very good, I think he has the best hands on this team. I don’t know who has the best in the league, but I think he’s right up there.”

I'd love to see Casey utilized in more creative ways: FB, H-back, Slot ect.. He's got so much talent, and I love his attitude. I'd love to see us run the ball out of a 4 wide set with OD, JD, Casey and Graham - talk about downfield blocking. I also think we sould utilize our TEs in the slot much like Indy does with Dallas Clark. I think Casey could be a Dallas Clark-lite if given the opportunity. FB screens, TE screens, the possibilities are endless with our crew of TEs. Look at the success NE has with their stable.

Been asking for this since he was drafted. For some reason or another though, Kubiak will never fully believe in him. He's been the most underutilized player on this team since he was drafted.

He's gotta stay healthy, maybe that means less of a role on special teams. I like Dreesen but I'd really like to see Casey get the reps opposite OD. Garret Graham made a nice catch too. He looks like he has some ability. Casey made some awesome catches this year and last Sunday was right up there.
