Default DeVier Posey

I saw the 3rd round draft pick getting a good amount of playing time today. That was a pleasant surprise. I don't know if he was in because LeStar Jean, KJ, or Martin was hurt, or if he's recently been impressing Kubiak in practices. But he didn't look like a lost puppy out there. Glad to see it.

His second catch of the game was impressive. He attacked that ball.

Default Re: DeVier Posey

Kubes has been trying hard these last few games to get 1 of these other guys to step up and take
The pressure off AJ and Daniels in the passing game. So far:

Jean hasn't been able to separate and get open/stay healthy all year
Martin has been inconsistent at best and i think he's had his hands full with ST duties.

Walter is who he is.....a #3 option that likely wont be around next year b/c of his cap hit.

I think Posey becoming a factor today isn't conicidental. Kubes just wanted to be sure the kid was ready to contribute and that he wasn't abandoning his other youngins too early..

*Jean has everything but is still work in progress because he lacks core strength.
*Martin is adjusting to route running & needs to use his body to shield the defender off or draw interference penalty (should have gotten a call against NE).
*Walter is a Texan & will retire as one, taking pay cut to help his team if needed.
*Most important thing for Posey is confidence. More PT will help especially if its all good. He reminds me a little of Mario Manningham combination of quickness & pass snagging ability. Better upside as WR than Jacoby whom I believe he was drafted to replace.

Marcus,

I'm glad you posted this. I was going to post something similar, and I don't think I'm making a mountain out of a molehill by saying that something was just special about Posey today.

It wasn't just his seperation, the position of his hands, or his route running that seperated him from Jean and Martin, today...it was the "It-Factor" where he looked liked he just belonged.

I mean, I came into this game thinking the Texans were still one WR and one pass rusher away from a championship. The way Posey played made me rethink that.

Not big numbers, nothing flashy...but "it?" Yeah, "It!"

Default Re: DeVier Posey

I was against this draft pick on draft day.

I was somewhat against him in camp.

Over time, I have begun to believe that YEAH I was probably knee-jerking, just because of off-the-field stuff and having been out of football almost that whole final college season at OSU.

The way he's been brought along is genius. I never really have any fault with Kubiak for how he selects guys, how he chooses to bring them along, and then how he uses them in games. He's very smart with that. And it looks like he's made what might be a really solid pickup at WR for us by drafting Mr. Posey.

I also like us going more 5 WR today than I've really seen us do in awhile. We need to make defenses think a little bit out there. Not every games has to be the standard 2 WR, 1 TE, HB, RB formation.

A little Run-N-Shoot isn't bad.

Posey is looking good. In his few appearances on the field, he has made some athletic plays. There seems to be a lot of upside there.

Posey looked GREAT today and his run blocking was IMO the best of all wide outs....including 80. The long TD run by AF that was called back, Posey delivered a PERFECT back side block to the lb or db, whatever that was he blocked......ugh it was a thing of beauty. He also had a few guys 15 yards down field blocking when AF sprung loose late in the game.....mad effort by that kid today

He's verrrry smooth, effortless in the transition between catching the ball and running with it. Soft hands.

I am hoping that Kubiak and Schaub are intent upon getting this guy geared up for major duty over the next several weeks. I think he can handle it.

I can tell he has better hands than Martin, but Martin looks like better route runner. If only we could combine them into Kevier MarPosey and create some kind of super human receiver.

In preseason and scrimmages, Posey seemed to have trouble getting separation in routes. He also seemed to avoid being physical. I suspect Kubiak relegated him to PS to rectify that situation. Around the middle of the season, he started to get more snaps but rarely as a primary target and often on running plays.

Posey has started to show the flashes that lead you to believe he can be an every down player in this league. He has good hands and great quickness. If he can improve that route running and continue to play physical, he will be prove to be a great WR for the Texans.

He can't be put on practice squad... He ran scout team and I'm sure that has helped.

Posey looked good on the routes where be wasnt the target. I was hoping he would go down field more and get some separation. He could be great on the bootleg

(on his big catch where he drew a penalty as well) “Like I said, I lost my virginity on my first NFL bang. It didn’t hurt too bad. That fear it definitely gone just not knowing what it’s going to be like. I think all other passes shouldn’t have an excuse of going to get it.”

LMAO, that makes me laugh

I hope Kubiak knows what he's doing with guys like Posey. That guy is a big time player. Just like I think Brandon Harris is a big time player.

I don't think I've ever seen a player as hungry as Brandon Harris, taking advantage of his opportunity to earn a spot on this team. Well, maybe Arian Foster & that's worked out pretty good for us. If Posey can be the next Foster, things are going to get much more exciting around here.
