I want to see how Jones works out at OG. The fact that he can fill in for Myers if something should happen is gravy. Better this way than to have Myers trying to play guard.

I just have this feeling that OB is going to want a heavier center. Meyers not only gives up 20 pounds to Jones, but he gives up about the same to many of the D's he faces.

Worth a try. I fear Myers will be manhandled by not playing ZBS, I believe he was a product of that system

Vince Wilfork.

Kris Jenkins.


You're a fool if you don't double team those two regardless who your center is. When no named nobodies start jacking up Myers, let me know.


At the same time, we spent a third round pick on Ben Jones. Shame we can't find a place on the field for him.

Default Re: Center Battle

It's strange that we're talking about replacing the center when that was not a failure point last season and LG was.

Also, please cite the last time Myers was manhandled. If you're talking about that Jets game five years ago, that's just silly.

Default Re: Center Battle

I was one of those guys that scolded Chris Meyers after the viral video of Kris Jenkins of the Jests whoopin', abusing his arse.... That said, I retracted my opinion about Meyers. He played very well.... The thing was, or the question asked should be was he good because of Kubiak's system???

Also it should be noted that Meyers is 34 years old.... Maybe it is time to move to Jones.

The problem with this statement is the belief that OB doesn't use a ZBS.

He does.

I expect Myers to continue to fit right in.

Why does this keep getting brought up? I thought that was settled long ago.

Default Re: Center Battle

Silly question, surely everyone wants to see a TC battle at every position. Whether that be Chris Myers, Derek Newton, or JJ Watt.

It's one of the key things that Kubiak wasn't capable of instigating, ever.

Amobi Okoye didn't have to compete, the starting job was his no questions, same went for Kareem Jackson (first couple of years), if the resources invested made a battle embarrassing, you didn't get one.

It's something I'm hoping well see a huge change in.

Would you ever have seen Kubiak make a big QB signing in FA and then invite controversy by using a first day pick at the same position, knowing at least one would fail? Of course you wouldn't, but Seattle are World Champs.

It's also one of the reasons why we failed to develop talent on the Oline to replace the likes of Smith, Walter, brisiel etc, if you aren't de facto #1 you don't get the reps to be ready to step in under Kubiak. Caldwell may have fixed the LG spot already had that not been the case, that swing tackle we had for years (forget his name) may have fixed the RT spot 3 years ago but no. Starters were starters.

I think this explains the incredibly poor record we have in the 2nd and 3rd rounds, if your draft status didn't earn you a starting spot, you sure as hell weren't about to threaten an established vets place in the team.

There isn't a team in the league that follows that model.

That is charitably called a stretch. 3rd round QBs no matter what day they fell on have never been considered inviting controversy and the Seahawks thought they were drafting a backup QB. Matt Flynn was brought in to compete with Tarvaris Jackson.

You need an example of someone more talented the Kubiak Texans held back to substantiate your assertion.

Jones made Newton look like an All-Pro. I'm sorry, but unless he's night and day better at C than he is G he's not the answer. I know he was a C in college, but you'd think he'd pick up the G position after a couple years.

It really sucked Q went down last year. I'm looking forward to see him rebound this camp and win a spot

That is difficult given that my assertion is that we've seen players' development hindered to the point where they never reached their talent potential.

However, I believe the FO leak earlier this season about the failure to rotate players, can be construed as evidence that it is not just me who sees this as having been a problem.

Earl Mitchell didn't get enough reps behind Shaun Cody, whilst. Chris Jones went and started for New England having barely seen the field for us.

Foster was held back for 3/4 of a season behind who exactly, and then Ben Tate has been criminally under utilised to the point where we've ran Foster into the ground just because he was in 'the doghouse' during a season when he remained relatively healthy.

I've not been one to hound Kubiak, I think he moved the club to a new level over his tenure (it was definitely time to move on though), I just see this as having been a failing he had. He never trusted young players with few reps, and subsequently they never got enough reps to develop.

Your first point, yeah, you're right, it's a league wide thing, not that it necessarily makes it right. If your first round draft pick isn't ready to play week 1, don't throw him to the wolves anyway, find someone who can play and feed him in gradually.

In fact I think the NFL as a whole is roundly failing in the area of talent development, when you reach the pros, due to the salary cap and roster limitations, it's sink or swim straight away when in other sports you find lots of players who take a few years of extremely uneven play before finding their feet at the top level.

I'd love to see some kind of reserve league added for development, keep them seperate from the actual roster, play maybe 4 or 6 games a season against other reserve teams, and see how they get on, maybe be able to activate one or 2 per season to the active roster and for the rest they just have to wait till the following TC to try and battle it out. Would give more young players a chance to get better IMHO.

I always respect your opinion ICAK, but sometimes you look for a little too much "proof" considering we're discussing a game where secrecy and schadenfreude are king. It's very rare you'll get the true spin on what's going on behind the scenes in a varifiable manner. Look at some of the rubbish posted as 'news' on NFL.com and it's little more than speculation from the same outside position as we get with maybe a little more access to Chinese whispers than what we get as lay-fans.

I thought Ben Jones did a fine job. Give him the starting job & he'll grow into it. I think it should have had the job over Wade Smith for sure. Rotating in & out of the game as a rookie I thought he did as well as Brooks. Different, but for what he did, he did well.

I'm not saying he should be a lock for the LG spot, if Ques is going to be in competition for the position, let them battle it out. But I think Q & Brennan should be battling for the RT job.

I'm not certain what you're seeing, man. Smith had a rough year, but Jones wasn't close to beating him out or anyone else along the oline. Saying he did just as well as Brooks is crazy. Brooks was one of the better of the bunch towards the end of the season. Playing next to Newton is what hurt him.
