OK, 5 days in and I'm getting a little punchy. This is a weird training camp report, but if you want normal AP copy, you read somebody else.

Day 5 2012 Texans training camp: TMI edition (warning)

Default Re: Official 2012 Training Camp Thread

some of my observations from today, bear with me I'm typing this from my phone during my daughters dance class.

Louiseau actually looked very good at shedding blocks and meeting the ball carrier at the LOS aside from one play where he got blown up from the RT. I think he makes the team.

Forsett is ably our #3 rb, Grimes did have a big run today for a TD though. O-line looked pretty good with both the 1's and 2's. I wouldn't worry about it. Newton especially looked good today.

Jean had a big drop on a very catchable ball and looked a little soft out of his break.

Brice McCain looked great, even almost got one from Kevin Walter but Walter slammed him down to break up the play. J-Jo did steal one from Walter on a crossing route.

Braman had a pretty awesome mid air arm tackle on Tate, absolutely leveled him.

Not sure if TJ just had an off day, but Beck and Keenum were noticeably sharper.

Louiseau may make the team because of how thin the Texans are at ILB. Effort guy.

Jean had two ungood days in a row. Has had better days.

The Braman tackle of Tate was highlight reel ooooh stuff.

I didn't see the same thing you did with TJ/Beck/Keenum.

I'm a little worried about Jean dropping catchable passes. How is he looking in general?

A week from Friday. I gotta make it just 8 more days.

8 days until I see some football, and maybe a peep show from what I've read recently??? LOL.

8. Days.

Very up and down. Looks the part. But some days he's not catching things that NFL teams need their big body guy to catch. With two drafted guys behind him, he runs the risk of being this year's Dorin Dickerson.

There's a song behind this Bulls on parade maddness? I hope I never hear it or see the video.

It really doesn't matter to me who supports this dumbass nickname or who doesn't, it won't influence my belief that it's the damndest stupidest nickname ever!

Hmmm...

Houston News ‏@KTRKHouston
From David Nuno at Texans practice...JJWatt injured. More details when we get them. #Texans

Action 4 Sports ‏@action4sports
Injuries continue at Texans training camp: 3rd rd draft pick Brandon Brooks, G-Miami (OH), was taken off field by Houston training staff.

I know it's a closed practice, but they are doing live streams at times (which because I'm at work I haven't been watching). Anyone know more about either injury? If they are minor, no worries, but I'd hate to lose Brooks (need the OL depth) and definitely don't want to be without Watt for any period of the regular season...

It might be a stupid nickname but the song rocks.

I know you don't want to watch it but check it out. (NSFW)
