I have hope for this receiving corps' potential.

But I don't know how that's going to translate when bullets start to fly for real. I want to at least see a couple of pre-season games before I go crazy over them.

Don't forget about Casey. Before he got hurt he was a big factor in our offense last year. I keep bringing this name up, but I see him as our Frank Wycheck. Kubiak referred to him as his "Jim Thorpe" and I see him playing a major role this year. There aren't many players who can play full back, tight end, split out wide as a receiver, and then even take a toss at the tail back position like he did last year.

No, they don't run the same, but similarly, they have unique running styles.

Arian has a way of running where it is almost like he is gliding and doesn't look like he is running fast but is. He picks his spots and then gets into his extra gear in a way that makes him hard to tackle.

Martin has a suddenness to the way he runs, sort of a relentless choppiness that has the ability to embarrass defenders.

What I'm saying is that they have running styles that are so unique that even if you didn't see numbers on them, you could tell who they were by the way they run.

Day 8 2012 Texans training camp: My view on position competitions

Lots of stuff there.

Including a fun picture of Matt Schaub. I started getting requests on Twitter for avatar pictures, so I then started taking a different picture every day. Yesterday I was able to get Schaub to do one, and this is the pose he chose.

I don't think that fullback is really a key competition. I'm much more interested, as a fan, in which guy with <2 seasons emerges as a pass catching threat.

Yes. Agree with you.

I left him out sort of on purpose...to show that he's a guy who's an extra threat that adds to the problems of a d-coord.

He's an x-factor guy. Other guys are likely splitting time...Casey is all over the field playing whatever position Kubiak wants/needs on any given play.

The 49ers of the 80's would disagree with you and Tom Rathman would like a word with you. With a suspect O-Line (or Unknown if you prefer) it maybe one of the more crucial positions than any other on the team this season.

I don't think newton is going to be a "swing tackle" just based off of my own observations.

Seems like he will play the RT position regardless of which tackle gets injured.

I think they will do what they've done which is move butler to LT. They probably trust him more to handle that side.

Strongly agree. Even draft scouts were speaking of Newton not being able to handle the LT position at the NFL level because he demonstrated limited quickness and lateral mobility. He should do fine at RT, but like Winston, he may have problems with around the end speed rushers.

The 80's was 30 years ago, and Tom Rathman ain't walkin through that door. The Texans have proven over the last couple of years that great fullback (Leach) or not (Vickers) they will get their yards on the ground.

To anyone attending practice, pay attention to the appearance of Schaub's legs and see if you perceive any differences in their development/thickness.

DB, AJ and KJ were all back at practice. AJ took about 20 reps. KJ took about half his usual and DB went the entire practice.

Per Twitter post practice tweets

I really haven't been paying attention to TC this year, so if anyone doesn't mind, will give me the rundown of the TC so far?

And someone told me Tate's looking terrible this offseason, is that true?

Best way to catch up would be Texan Chick's blog on the Chronicle.

Have not heard even the hint of a rumor about Tate not looking good.

That's good, not sure the guy was trolling or just an idiot. He wanted to trade him for a WR and have UDFA Johnathan Grimes our backup.

I was going to make a joke about watching the cheerleader's legs...


I attended one last week. He signed autographs before and after practice so we were close. I was looking more to see if he favored either foot walking or standing. There was nothing noticeable in his gait, stride or stance.
