Most professional players will put in the necessary work into getting back into shape........and it may feel that they are "working their butt off to get back." But beyond that, I wouldn't put much into statements like that.

Listening to Williams I'm beginning to think more and more that the IR stash for the Texans is an actual thing.

Says he feels good, but they keep pushing the date back and he's fighting them to try to get back but ultimately will do what the professionals tell him to do.

I wouldn't be surprised to hear about a setback or see him come back but re-injure himself. Just in time for the IR stash.

With how tenuous the OT situation is, I would tend to believe that this is not an IR ploy, more an underestimated injury.

@HoustonTexans OTAs: Most FG kicking work done on side field. Today was first day in simulated pressure in front of team/media

@HoustonTexans OTAs: Tho Bullock did some deep FG during practice, not being automatic for someone w/ his inexperience is a concern.

@HoustonTexans OTAs: Worked on more situational football: red zone, no huddle, live kicking in front of team/media.

@HoustonTexans OTAs: In middle of practice, saw missing jet flyover. Lots of police directing traffic in area.

@HoustonTexans OTAs cut short this morning due to team going to firefighter memorial. Felt sad. Helicopters hovering, bagpipe sounds, sirens

Here's an additional tweet:

Stephanie Stradley ‏@StephStradley 4h
@HoustonTexans OTAs: Kubiak said Bullock was good on kickoffs today, 6-8 in live practice kicks. "Need him to be automatic."

Bullock is going to be a concern all camp until he is not. And even then games are different.


As for no huddle, they work on it when they do situational stuff. Was a challenge last year do to changes on the line.

Oops, must have deleted that one by accident.

There goes my shot at getting that job at PFT as a news/feed aggregator.


I agree on Bullock. He's already got two strikes against him: 1) he's a kicker, 2) he's a young, unproven kicker.

3) He has not felt in-game pressure in well over a year.

I've been to all the OTAs. Haven't written up all of them because at some point the macro view is more important than the micro view.

My view of the WRs:

1. Last year I did not buy into the hype of any of the WRs. They had up and down days, and I think some folks got overly down on Posey, overly up on Jean and Martin. They all looked inconsistent to me. It also did not help that Schaub didn't work with them during OTAs because he was still rehabbing foot.

2. I do think Jean and Martin look more consistent this year. I do not think that is hype. What that translates on the field, I do not know.

3. Hopkins is different than every WR the Texans have acquired post-AJ. Just very impressive. Great, great hands. Very physical. He isn't getting a ton of targets but makes the most of them. I don't think the talk about him is hype.

He won't get a ton of twitter talk during this phase of OTAs because he is working with 1s, working against 1st team defense, isn't getting a ton of targets because healthy JJo is covering him as consistently as a Jags tarp.

I am not sure of how many targets Hopkins will receive but Hopkins is exactly as advertised. Strikes me as a bright guy too. (Sometimes you interview guys and it is like looking into the eyes of a cow. Texans haven't kept a lot of those guys).

4. Bonner is getting a lot of targets from backup QBs/against backup corners. He is making the most of those targets, has shown good body awareness. When he runs routes, looks like he's on rails. Flashy catches mean lots of tweets about him. He's intriguing, but don't know how it will translate to real man football.

5. Overall the group of WRs look like they belong. In shorts. There isn't a Trindon/Jean's first year guy out there looking confused.

I'll be doing a complete OTAs wrap up on Thursday.

I didn't feel good about Bullock when we drafted him (For the life of me, I never understood why if we drafted a kicker, we would have passed on Zerlein). I didn't feel any better after seeing him kick prior to his injury last year. And I have even less of a warm fuzzy feeling going into this season with him as the "Chosen One."

Default Re: Texans OTAs thread (5/20-21, 23, 28-30, 6/3-6).

Quote sheet today. Short practice. Very, very up tempo. Fortunately because it was early, it was cool (ish):


Quote:
Head Coach Gary Kubiak
(on why it was so important to go the Firefighter Memorial Service at Reliant Stadium as a team) “Our community means so much to us as an organization, that goes without saying. These players, they come from all over the country and they become a Houstonian. We put a team together and get very close to our city and it something that we talked about as a team with the players the other day. We get so much support from them and its time for us to show our support for these families and the people that serve our city on a daily basis. It’s interesting; we’ve had a few things happen this offseason with coaches’ families and a few things going on. It kind of makes you stop and we’ve got a lot of other things other than football going on in our lives that we’ve got to handle, too. We want to help these families handle this situation.”

(on if there was a different feel at today’s OTA session) “Obviously you know something’s going on all morning and to see the fire trucks lined up down Kirby (Drive) as we walked over. I think it keeps things in perspective for you, what’s going on. But we were able to get out here this morning, have a good workout. Obviously looking forward to going in there and showing our support this morning.”

(on TE Ryan Griffin finding open spaces in the last few days) “Yeah. He has a chance to be a really good player and I think he can get bigger, too. So we’re excited. He fits the mold with what we do at tight end with the guys we have. He’s very smart and I saw him make a few plays out here today. It was a good practice. We were only out here about an hour and 20 minutes trying to teach no-huddle and hurry-up. I think we got a lot out of it.”

(on the pace of the OTA session being good) “It was very good. It’s kind of good, too, that it happens at 8 in the morning because that’s when we practice during camp so it teaches those rookies how to get their clock going early and get over here. We try to simulate as much as what we’re fixing to go do, so it was a good practice.”

(on the play of QB Case Keenum) “He’s playing really well. You all see it. You all come out and watch practice. He’s got a ton of confidence. He knows exactly what’s going on this year, so that’s not going to be the problem. It’s just a matter of getting it done and he’s operating that way. Every time he’s gotten a chance with his group he’s made plays and he’s protected the ball well, too. That’s one thing I’ve been impressed with. I think he’s thrown maybe one interception throughout the course of the OTAs, so he’s come a long, long way.”

(on QB T.J. Yates) “(QB) T.J. (Yates) is fine. When you’re working as the (No.) 2 (quarterback), you’re working against the first-team defense in certain drills, so that’s a tough deal. I understand that. I did that for a while. But T.J.’s doing good. He had the OTAs. I think he’s made progress off the last year but he’s getting pushed and he knows it and it’s going to make them both better.”

(on what he’s seen from K Randy Bullock) “I don’t watch him as much with (special teams coordinator) Joe (Marciano) until we start doing the team stuff here. But I thought today in kickoffs he was excellent. I think he was 6-of-8 today in field goals. We need him to be automatic but we’ve got a lot of confidence in him. That’s why he’s the only guy here, basically. We need him to come on real quick for us. Need it to get done.”

(on when FS Ed Reed will be in Houston) “He’ll be here next week. He’ll be here basically for just an evaluation process. Obviously he can’t do anything. But, well on top of what’s going on. We know who’s working with him in Atlanta and then we’ll get him here next week.”

(on LT Duane Brown’s health) “I was going to tell you guys that but nobody asked. (LT) Duane (Brown) was not here this morning. Duane has a bone spur that’s been bothering him somewhere in his ankle area and made a decision yesterday to go ahead and shave it. So he’s having that done this morning. It’s a minor procedure. He’s fine. We just want to make sure it’s something that’s not a problem when we go to camp, so we decided to do it.”

(on if he expects LT Duane Brown to be fine in time for training camp) “Yeah. I expect him to be fine in a couple weeks. It’s just a decision we made yesterday. It’s bothered him the last couple days and he doesn’t need to go through a whole year worrying about that so that’s why we did it.”

(on if there are any other injuries) “(DE Earl) Okine did not practice today. He’s got a leg bruise but should be back next week with the guys.”

(on if anyone stuck out during the OTA session) “I’d have to go back and look; we were practicing so fast this morning. I thought some good things happened. Obviously, we changed the tempo of practice and it caught some young guys off guard, as far as some of the things they were doing. But yet, you saw some other guys keep up real well. It was a good day.”

Steph,

I hear that Newton looks like the Goodyear blimp. In my previous posts, I mentioned that a patellar tendon rupture surgery is not an easy recovery, especially in an already heavy player like a lineman. It can be a total deal breaker when that player due to inactivity allows himself to gain a very large amount of weight. I have heard that Newton is up around 345-350 pounds. Can you comment on this?

Not going to answer for GK, but I would assume that he knows who the locks are...Who the very likely to make it are and who are the guys fighting to make the team on the bubble...

I don't think he is even close to thinking about that.

A lot has to do with who is healthy and when, and who they think will become healthy so they can stock the practice squad properly.

I've talked to him in late August, right before final cuts, and he isn't spilling much beans.

I can try the last question, but I'm not sure how much I can get.

It is hard to ask him questions that he doesn't give a generalized answer to.

I don't think I've ever felt confident in our kickers since the start of the franchise.

I'm expecting a general answer.... a cryptic I didn't really say much Kubiak answer. I'd like to "see" how he reacts though. Body language, tone, what generalities he makes.

What he is willing to say, what he's not, & how far he goes.

Even the 53 man roster, I'm sure he's not going to give us any names, not even Foster or Schaub, or OD who we know will make it. But if he says he's given it some thought..... I would take that to mean he's got a really good crop of yung'ns, or if he mentions TEs..... or whatever.

Basically I'm just looking for some lines to read between.
