I like what Charles Spencer said:

Reporter: "You have any butterflies"

Charles Spence: "I ain't got no butterflies man. I ain't scared of nobody."

this was my favorite...

“(Mini-camp) is huge, because I went from a starting role to not playing to playing behind guys right now, so I’ve got to work hard to get back in that starting lineup,” Spencer said. “I can’t sit on no bench.”
none of this, "well, I was the starter when I got hurt so they should give me my job back" crap.

man, ya gotta love it.

I like Jason Simmons but I don't think he makes the team this year....to many young big safties on the squad now.

If he gets through those first 5 games and holds his own he's our guy for the next decade imo. But realistically, the most important thing is that those first 5 games dont break his will, that's a tough stretch for any LT much less a rookie.

The toughest one imo will be against the Steelers opening day. I remember YTF posting about how much trouble he had against the Kansas zone blitz defense in their bowl game last season. The Steelers are undoubtedly going to throw some exotic coverages at Brown and see how handles it.
I doubt the Steelers will win that first game if we could go by last years stats. We matched up with them in just about every category and that was with all the injuries we sustained.

On the bottom of their sweat shorts, the Texans have two slogans: "Protect the ball" for offensive players, and "Take it away" for defensive players.

I read or wathced something that commented on Meyers being small, I think it was Mclain on the fish wrap online. I saw some of the vids on the main site that showed Meyers taking snaps and he doesnt look 300 lbs to me. The guy looked small. I believe Mclain also said that he made up for size with movement and technique.

Again I think this was Mclain.. Weaver supposedly droped 10-15 lbs in order to be a better pass rusher.

Adibi with a tweaked hammy, and Bennet with a twisted ankle. Hopefully this isnt a trend for the season.

A better Mario!? I cant wait to see him open up some more this year.

One of the vids from the main site showed Spencer taking RG snaps with the 1st team I think.

I wouldnt buy too much into Brown taking all the snaps. If he is the better player he will start the season if not it will be Salaam. I think Salaam did a good job last year, he played hurt some but showed up when needed. Brown is the future though and he will get his reps. Its actually a good scenario, Salaam doesnt get worn out early if we need him and Brown gets reps he needs to play later.

Just some of my observations and thoughts from the news from the mini.

gotta tip my hat to Salaam for being a man and a professional about Brown getting the reps with the #1's. refreshing to see an athlete who is honest and upfront about his career and role.

I'd certainly like to think that but we were a completely different team on the road last year.
