Default training camp preview

I found this in Yahoo Sports.

I think that this preview more or less confirms many of the opinions I see on the board. Still its good to get a subjective view. I apologize in adavance if it has been posted already.

The only other significant addition to the offense is tight end Mark Bruener, a blocking specialist who left Pittsburgh to sign with the Texans as a free agent. He won't start, but the Texans' depth at the position could lead to plenty of two-tight end sets, especially in short-yardage situations.

that might answer an ongoing discussion on these boards

Who's John Tuvey and why should we believe him? Fanball usually has pretty good insight but I'm not down with this one.

If the Texans come out in anything but four wides for their first play from scrimmage against SD, Bruener will most likely be lined up to Wade's right. That's my feeling anyway.

I believe that is exactly why we brought Bruener in, to help Wade on that left side. It also leads me to believe we will be a running team more than a passing team.

Wade plays RT. Do you mean Wand, our LT.

Thanks wags. I do mean Wand, after all he is the second year guy and not Wade. Man that is going to be one thing we will all need to make ourselves clear on for a while, the names are so similar.

You're football knowledge is apparently confined to watching games from the
prone position of a comfortable sofa on weekends, because the project is not for a DL to learn to pass rush from the upright position - rather it's learning how to cover pass receivers. See, you probably slept thru the video presentation of NFL 101, but pass coverage is a foreign concept to defensive
linemen.
And football is physically demanding, can be exausting - sometimes even very painful, but not brutal. Irag - now that's brutality.
By the way in a 3-4 scheme the OLBs main purpose is to supply a pass rush and get to the QB so Lucky was right, yes they do cover but I have a think that DC is smart enough to know which LB to put in zone coverage and which one to blitz. Babins main concern this year will be the pass rush and he will learn to cover as he progresses in the defense.
