Geez, no kidding. Can you imagine losing the season to that? They need to give whoever was driving that cart a field sobriety test.

Wow, I've gained a whole new level of respect for Posey. All this talk about how he lacked work ethic last year can be completely thrown out of the window now.

If he's able to be 85-90% of what he was at the end of the year last year for the Texans early on he's going to help the team.

Must say I'm pretty darned impressed with Devier Posey. His attitude, his commitment, the research he's done, his work ethic ..... to come back this quickly from such a devastating injury is impressive. Whether he contributes this year or not, I have to say I'm 100% in this young man's corner for the way he has carried himself throughout.

My hat's off to him...

Talk from who? I don't remember hearing talk of that nature. My understanding was that it took him a little longer to grasp the playbook. Had nothing to do with work ethic

Early on in the offseason last year Kubiak made some comments about him not being in football shape and of course people jumped to the conclusion that he lacked work ethic. In Kubiak's words he said things like "He needs to be able to run all day".

But that had more to do with not playing football for so long because of his suspensions.

The Texans picked him up, because of the work ethic he showed while suspended & the work he put in to help the other members of the team.

He's a solid Dude, very Texans worthy.

Of course most people know that TK, and the majority of people went to bat for him. Just go to this original Posey thread. I never once questioned this, but there were a couple of people who did. Nothing wrong with the people that did either. I think its easy to take Kubiak's quotes and run with them because he always seems to take digs at players he's trying to push, especially younger players.

At least, I was quite positive that he would play this year.
I never ruled him out for game 1, but didn't want to get my hope up too high.

So are we going to carry six?

Depends on how many RB's and OL we end up carrying. If we do 8 OL, and 3 RB's (with 1 FB) we'll probably carry 6, although I can definitely see Posey taking Jean's place if we only go 5 (Andre, DeAndre, KeShawn, Posey, Bonner).

Yep, was about to post the same thing.. Jean at least has size and a ability to play on the outside.. Martin doesn't really have any unique abilities.

He had a few returns he almost took to the house. Add in the fact that our blocking stunk for most of the year then I'd say he was the least of our problems in that area.

I think they like Martin more than Jean. I think he's higher up on the depth chart.

If anything, I think it's Bonner that's got to be careful or he'll end up on the PS. For me, I see the list as:

1. AJ
2. DH
3. Posey -- Depending on his conditioning.
4. Martin
5. Bonner
6. Jean
7. Lemon
8. Cruz/EZ/Smith

Same blocking looked pretty good for D manning when he was in.

Posey
Jean
Martin

Manning is an elite return man. I never said Martin was Manning. Simply said he brings value which he does. The blocking for much of the year was bad. There is a reason we hired an Assistant Special Teams coach. There's a problem there everyone recognizes.
