Well it's early.
Or it is over analysis. Get serious. There have been a few reports of one of the best LTs in the NFL stymying a 2nd year OLB so the OLB is doing poorly. Somebody has to win. People would be all chicken little if Merciless was beating Brown.

Add in the fact that Brown stymies most of the better pass rushers in the league.

Or contribute very little at the least.

This is just another example of the Texans medical team screwing up.

So they have had the same folks the entire time? Just curious if you can name the key personnel whose tenure is too long.

How long has Kap been around? I don't recall the name of the guy before him but I wasn't playing that close of attention prior to Kubiak.

Just an FYI from a Newsletter that is routinely distributed to Medical Center physicians.
Quote:

Texas Medical Center — Houston, Texas — TMC NEWS
Vol. 24, No. 5 Previous Table of Contents Home Next March 15, 2002

Clanton Named Team Physician for New Houston Texans Football Team
by MEREDITH RAINE-MIDDLETON
The University of Texas
Health Science Center at Houston

Dr. Tom Clanton, professor and chairman of the department of orthopedics at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston, is one of the new team physicians for the Houston Texans National Football League team.

Dr. Clanton, who has been practicing sports medicine for 20 years, will serve as an orthopedic consultant and the team�s foot and ankle specialist.

"I�m excited to be working with the Texans," Dr. Clanton said. "They have a great organization from the top down."

Dr. Clanton is no stranger to the sports arena. As a student, he played football at Rice University, and since 1982, has been a team physician for the Rice Athletic Department. He acted as a consultant to the team physician for the former Houston Oilers, and numerous professional football players already are among his patients.

His experience and the confidence of Drs. Walter Lowe, the Texans� head team physician, and James Muntz, team internist and volunteer faculty member at the UT-Houston Medical School, is what earned Dr. Clanton the spot on the four-member team of physicians.

"Our job will be to make sure that the players, as patients, receive the best possible care we can provide," Dr. Clanton said. "It�s imperative that physicians caring for athletes understand both the injury and the sport in order to determine when the risk of returning to sports participation is acceptable. This is particularly critical in the professional athlete."

The Houston Texans begin their inaugural season this fall.
Dr. Lowe has always remained the Texans' head team physician (orthopedics) and Dr. Muntz the team internist. Dr. Clanton (orthopedics) as "assistant" team physician to Dr. Lowe has since left the team. Dr. Lowe usually has a rotation of "lesser" assistants (orthopedic) at any one time.

I found the above highlighted paragraph especially "interesting."

I believe you are referring to Texans head athletic trainer Geoff Kaplan. He is not a physician. He's been with the Texans I think going on his 5th year.

Late morning reads...

Jayson Braddock ‏@JaysonBraddock
Quote:
When Brandon Brooks gets his anchor down there isn't a force alive that can move him.

Brandon Brooks has the talent to be a stud in this league. After facing JJ Watt in 1 on 1s each day, what else does he have to fear?

Daniel Muir has a slap move that appears could dislocate an O-lineman's shoulder. If he makes linemen fear another attribute, it'd be deadly

Willie Jefferson had beat Andrew Gardner twice & split w/ Harris but Quessenberry, who shutdown Mercilus & Vardo, threw Willie to the ground

After Duane Brown shutdown Mercilus on all 4 of their 1 on 1s, Whit went up against David Quessenberry & lost. Kollar pulled him for Willie

Antonio Smith had his way w/ Ben Jones on both reps, but Jones took out his frustrations on Keith Browner, throwing him to the ground 1 on 1

As I mentioned yesterday, Ryan Harris looks like a patient vet. After Willie Jefferson beat him, he settled in and anchored.

Earl has the ability to beat Myers when he uses power, but anytime I see him try to spin out vs Myers the play is over.

O line vs D line 1 on 1s were fun to watch as always. Really enjoy Earl Mitchell vs Chris Myers, not so much Duane Brown vs Whitney Mercilus

1) Matt Schaub 2) TJ Yates 3) Case Keenum 4) Stephen McGee. Once again, it's very early and camp is fluid. Live bullets will be key.

Stephen McGee is delayed in his throws and seems to not be as instinctual. It's early & fluid, but if QB depth chart was due today, I'd go..

When Keenum was doing footwork drills that teach QBs to keep their body square when evading pressure, he still looked very raw.

Case Keenum has great location on his ball thrown outside of the numbers. He ALWAYS drops it in on the outside shoulder. Hard to defend

Antonio Smith came out fired up. He destroyed Ben Jones on 1 rep, then follows it up by making quick work of Brandon Brooks.

Whitney Mercilus impressed more on a run play towards his side, than on most passing rushing opportunities. He set the edge & stuffed run

AJ Bouye got out of position on a sideline 1 on 1, but had quick recovery & explosive vertical. His vert would of closed a window of 3-4 yds

Trevardo did get a reaction out of me when Adam Schiltz pulled down the back of the line towards Trevardo & was sent quickly to his backside

Trevardo didn't look comfortable in 1 on 1s & is struggling to learn NFL adjustments & line shifts. Can't grade him until the light goes on

Despite his size, he has good balance when taking on hits & is tough for defenders to tackle. Jared Crick had clean shot, but whiffed high.

Dennis Johnson continues to look like the possible homerun threat that this team has been looking for. Squeezes thru tiny holes & explosive

Ryan Griffin has impressed in his routes and hands, but DJ stayed tight in coverage before their legs tangled up.

DJ repeatedly plowed thru players coming thru the hole when he was in the box. After 1 play, he told Manning "I lit his little #@$ up"

Swearinger kept on for what seemed like a full mintue, screaming & making noises that usually don't come from humans.

After a Mercilus / Tate scuffle, followed by Antonio Smith mixing it up, Swearinger ran screaming on the field, "now we're playing football"

DJ Swearinger now takes the same tenacity to the defensive back group. It doesn't talk or carry himself as a rookie on the field.

Apparently every level of the Texans' defense now has a fiery player that loves the nastiness of football. We knew about Cushing, then Watt

I am personally reluctant to tweet too much about specific player performance. Unless it is off the charts good or bad.

Because people over read stuff.

Lots of stuff going on. People see things differently.

Fans want news. Media wants to give news. However, the problem is that most camp stuff is not news.

I don't think any of the OLB are "showing poorly."

I think it is worth emphasizing what Kubiak said yesterday. From day to day, and even with shells and then pads on, he really doesn't have a good feel for performance until he gets to about the 3rd preseason game.

“I reserve judgment until we get to about the third week of the preseason. We’ve got a long way to go and you never know what’s going to happen. Right now, it’s just about teaching, grinding, coaching everybody. Everybody’s involved in that process. Just stay with the process, keep working and we’ve got to be ready to win a game against San Diego on opening day, so we’ll stay with the process.”

In other words, just because you haven't heard a ton on certain guys, doesn't mean you should be freaking out.

I think it is legit to go, hmmm Connor Barwin lots of snaps to replace, very little proven stuff.

But on quality of OLB play, we really won't know until real games.

Although he's not a physician, he's the guy in charge of that whole department, right? I'd assume the physicians are giving their reports and recommendations to Kap and then Kap is the interface to the coaching staff. I could be wrong about that but whenever there's a medically oriented question, Kubiak's all "Well, Kap said..."

I agree, but we like to hear some chatter about football. I take note when Seth Payne makes a football observation, since he's been there and knows of what he speaks. But camp is for learning and improving, so player assessment is pretty fluid day-to-day. Still fun to hear what others see, though.

I like sharing observations. And do.

Hard to do on Twitter without each observation being over-read though.

Bouye did have a nice day. Two picks, could have had a 3rd.

.................................................. .................... Dr. Chris Sanders
Team Dietitian......................................... ............Roberta Anding
Team Massage Therapist.................. Joni Honn/Genuine Touch
Team Ophthalmologist......................Baylor College of Medicine


*******************************


Lots of fancy titles. Bottom line, the head trainer in a system such as this will have the typical day-to-day contact with both the players and the coaches. But when there are particular player injury or medical problems in question, a physician (after input by the head trainer) will make final diagnostic evaluations and course of treatment plans and return-to-play decisions. Because of the head trainer's natural daily feedback relationship with Kubiak, it would not be unusual, if the organization feels comfortable, for him to be designated as appropriate to take on somewhat of a PR role.
