Not a bad idea if the Texans plan to carry only 5 WRs. He hasn't earned a spot on the team so far. He's looked horrible in fact. They can't just put him on the practice squad because another team will surely claim him as a third-round pick with potential. If he can somehow end up on IR that would be the best case scenario.

RagingBull. Agreed bro. That would be great for the Texans.

Kubiak wants to win games just as much as we want him to win games. He'll probably continue to trot Walter out there as a starter, but he'll give the snaps to the kids if they continue to work hard & act like pros.

Posey has been non-existent so far. In fact I don't recall seeing him on the field tonight. What makes you say he looks horrible? He hasn't had too many targets yet. He had one target against Carolina and it was a terribly thrown ball and none that I could recall tonight. Has his route-running been awful that you could tell?

IIRC, Keenum threw a pass to him tonight but... iirc... it wasn't a very catchable ball.

He didnt play tonight until the game was decided and was not targeted for a pass.

He had one target last week from Keenum that was uncatchable.


Yes , Martin and Jean have looked better , they have been on the field significantly more and with the 1's & 2's.

Not out of the realm of possibility .... they did it with Jean last year.

Kubiak has praised all three of those young recievers .... but Martin and Jean have shown with live bullets flying.

Hard to state he looks terrible when he hasnt had much in game opportunity and you havent seen him on the field , if anything I'd say he gets an incomplete.

The thing that confuses me is why Posey is not even getting a chance with the 1s OR 2s....Gary must have no intention of keeping him this season and IRresort is his destination.....

Or he made the wrong cut. He's lost out there. Posey's confidence is shot.

Honestly I don't see that, but I wouldn't mind it if it meant an extra roster spot somewhere.

I dont see it happening , just saying its a possibility , especially if another guy really shows he belongs at another position.

This years cuts are going to be really interesting .... Trycycle likely wont be one of them.

The last Texans player to return 2 for TDs in the preseason was...

Jacoby Jones, 2007.

The opening game kickoff return would have been a TD if he had cut to the left side of the field and not turned up the middle. There was nobody out there. Great job by Holliday though.

The funny thing is his criticism is "if he would have done this he would have had a TD" or "that 10 yard punt return wasn't very good". Devin Hester doesn't return every kick for a touchdown people! What is wrong with you!?!?

Yeah I don't think he saw that guy coming. He'll probably be kicking himself when he watches the film.

Still, that was a good return.

Still waiting on Holliday to make the Pro Bowl before I go and dig up my post from 2010 claiming we were making a huge mistake by not playing him.
He has had superstar written all over him sine the first return he ever made for the Texans. Just lucky we kept having him fall back into our laps.

Did anyone notice how Braman picked up Holliday after his second return? If you have access to the game go look, I laughed my ass off

He looked lost his first year here. There was nothing that justified him making the team two years ago or last year. This year is a different story.

He looked lost? He didn't even play. He got hurt early in preseason.
