From all the comments so far, you're not alone. Nor am I.

JJ is very coy with his answer when asked about playing standing up. Both times he keeps getting a big grin on his face & just says he's comfortable with doing anything on the football field. Add to that, the fact that Reed is being worked at ILB & I can't help but think they are going to go that way. Dang it! There I go drooling again.

I'm sure it's going to depend on the team we're facing & the offense they field. We're going to be a "multiple" defense. Versatility is the key.

Does it really matter? JAG will do fine.

He's still listed on the roster & I don't see any transactions showing they released him. Could you be thinking of Rico Richardson instead?

http://www.houstontexans.com/team/transactions.html

He's #94 on slide 57 of the day 2 OTA's.

Hell I don't know what I was thinking. I swear I heard that somewhere. Oh well good I was hoping he would make it. I would love that lineup in your sig. Hell replace Mathews with the guy from Tulane I don't care. Throw some big boys up in front of those FOUR to tie up blocks and let them make plays all over the field.

From what I've read, looks like several of our LBs will be interchangeable depending of the situation.

I've been down on Mercilus since the pick was announced. BUT the guy has physical tools. I've never liked the way he actually played though.

If this staff can identify his shortcomings and coach him up he could be an impact player. He's gotta be able to consistently stress the hell out of single blocks though and on occasion beat them and get sacks or pressures.
