I can see this signing; it would be a good move.

This guy could be money in short-yardage / goal-line situations. Wouldn't be against this signing at all.

Was that a replacement ref in the clip posted by srrono?

He stepped two feet out of bounds and the ref right there just lets the play continue. Ha ha ha ha! Awesome.

This would be a useful signing. Gotta be able to run in the red zone successfully specially for this offense.

Yeah... that's true. But it would nice if we had a HC & QB who new how to take advantage of a MLB weak league. if only we had two Owen Daniels, a hybrid FB & maybe a freaky dynamic HB .

Default Re: HOU may sign TE Steve Maneri

Maneri was rated 22nd out of 62 TEs overall by ProFootballFocus in 2012 for TEs taking >25% of team snaps.

He was 10th run blocking and 12th in pass blocking.

I'm thinking we'll draft Casey's true replacement; this signing is more of a depth thing if it goes through.

Default Re: HOU may sign TE Steve Maneri

If we sign Maneri, we have the luxury of cutting a swing tackle like Gardner if he doesn't improve enough to keep on the roster. That is if we want to save a roster space for another spot; we could carry a 4th TE and a FB.
That means we only carry 3 OTs. Possible? Or too risky?

Kubiak is pretty poor at using role players/back ups.

Doesn't pick his spots well and mis uses guys. Kubiak can pick up all the little role players and back ups with specialized skills that he wants to...won't matter...

He's potentially going to be our prized free agent. What do you expect?

We got Supernaw and Bryne on roster as well 76. For FB, I think we are giving Clutts a chance to start.

Supernaw and Byrne both can be cut anytime.
They haven't done anything except in practice.
If the coaches like them, fine; but none of us knows what to expect from them.
