Well until we see White play and play well, I don't think we can mark off Center as a need.

Anyone know any particular reason he's not seeing any time? Too raw? Great physical skills but still learning the position? Rehabbing from injury and not quite 100%?

Just askin'.......
He may not be ready yet. That or Kubiak is just loyal to a fault.

Don't the Texans have a lot of dead money coming off of the Salary Cap next year?

IMO, we should shop free agency for CB and center as we have money and some good CB are avail in comparison to RB,LT or FS. We go LT, RB, FS BPA in draft.

Actually, I think in rounds 1 and 3 we should take RB, C, or LT - BPA. Rounds 4-7 go after depth at the other positions including whichever of the three above didn't get selected.

Of course, I'm not a general manager and my ineptitude at personnel decisions is demonstrated weekly in fantasy football.
With how well our run D has been this year I'm not sure that this is a concern.

As for Spencer, I've been "I hope he just gets back at all" mode since training camp so I say give him all the time he needs.

Does putting him on IR free up a roster spot?

Why does everyone assume he will never play again?

The Texans, as an organization, take their time when dealing with injuries (Andre Johnson, Ahman Green, etc.). I think it's to early to jump to conclusions about Spencer never playing again.

My comment about needing a mike linebacker and good run stopping D end sounded much more sarcastic in my head than what came across on the screen.

It's got nothing to do with being realistic. It has everything to do, for some, who haven't being paying close attention.

very old news but searching around is all i could find about an update

Quote:
• LT Charles Spencer could play in 2008. ''We don't have any doubt that he's going to be able to play football again,'' Kubiak said. ''We're looking at next year, and I think we've really been working toward that the whole time. As a matter of fact, I saw him this morning. He looks good. You would never know he has the problem he has. That was a very serious injury and for the fact that he will be back and play going into next year is good for our franchise. It's very unfortunate.''

Not only that, but he has never really played in the NFL. And before that he barely played left tackle because he played on the defensive line before that.

We need 3 good cb's on our team to be successful against the pass and allow our DL that extra second to pressure the QB. If Dunta comes back 100% healthy for game 1 (which I'm personally skeptical about) and Bennett playing..I still think we need 1 more solid CB. I'd be fine with getting Florence so long as he doesn't hit schaub in practice!

That's what I've been saying as well. Spencer has played all of what? A game and a half in the NFL until he got injured? He'll be out for two whole seasons with no game experience, no practice experience etc.

Going into next season expecting Spencer to be our Franchise Left Tackle seems extremely foolish to me.

You forget that posters were projecting him to the Pro Bowl - during pre-season.

A tad premature.

I don't even understand why reporters even ask questions about the guy. As if he was a primetime player for us when he wasn't injured. I can't even tell you the guys number.
