Default Re: Pre-season 8/9/2013, Game 1 vs Vikings: Top 5 things you are interested in seeing

From what the Vikings are saying, Texans fans may be seeing few familiar players on the the field, especially if they blink. Looks like all teams seem to be more concerned this year about their vets making it to the regular season all in one piece. It'll be interesting to see if this trend makes it into the 3rd preseason game.

Not really news. Kubiak said that 17-20 guys could sit. Kubes seems to have some beef with Minnesota's turf.

There is question if Peterson, Allen, Jennings, Rhodes or Bishop play a down.

Sorry, I realized my mistake after posting. I don't think it's that uncommon for teams to sit players for the first game though.

No problem. I could have made it clearer. But I have to disagree on the first game comment. In the past preseasons, starters have routinely made it out for one or two series at least. This year, it looks as if there is team wide hesitancy due to the inordinate number of player training camp injuries to date.

There's no doubt that 20 players sitting is a bit extreme. It's not too uncommon to see players like Peterson, Foster & Andre sit the first game.

Have you noticed any other teams in the league sitting so many players outside of Minny/Houston? I have to admit, waiting for the Texans-Vikings tonight, I haven't watched one preseason game yet.

I know exactly what you mean, heck, Kubiak is a couple years younger than I am, LOL.
I knew about him when he was at St Pius X high school while I was at UH.
No, I didn't attend any of his games, but I was a stats guy, and so I collected stacks of local newspapers and his name was in there.

And it was still funny to me when I first heard of Kubiak calling the guys "kids".

Anyway, is it game time yet?
Man, I can't wait to watch some Texans football.

Is this going to be the game thread???

Or this: http://www.texanstalk.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=101225


Edina (Minnesota) players share practice field with NFL's Texans

Defensive end J.J. Watt also spent five minutes talking with the Hornets and urged them to ‘take care of business’ in school.
Quote:
You won’t see defensive end J.J. Watt on the field with his Houston Texan teammates Friday but a whole bunch of Edina High School football players did.

They got a post-practice speech from Watt, too.
