LOL, yeah I saw that too. When you're going to the God card, that's... well, that's not a good sign.

This is the most telling quote IMO....

Quote:
(on how hard it is when they like a player like Spencer to take emotion out of a roster decision) “Well, and that’s it: You’d like to say it’s business, but I don’t think you ever make a purely business decision. And so you see a kid working hard the way he has worked and you want to give him every opportunity, but like you said, at some point we’ve got 80 guys who’ll go to training camp and we can’t afford to have a bunch of guys standing around because we’ve already got one in Dunta (Robinson) that’s going to count, so we’re down to 79 and you can’t have very many guys that are counting that won’t practice. So it’s tough.”
I could be wrong but this tells me that Spencer's got until T/C opens to be ready to play or he's out.

He's not ready after 22 months, but you're going to see if he's ready in another 6 weeks???

Just cut him already. This is nothing but a song and dance.

John McClain said Spencer's injury was equal to jumping out of a five story window and trying to land on your feet ... eeek .

I wish Cloak and Dagger was here to give an opinion . Mine is that it's just to risky now and it'll be to risky next year and so on .

So what if it is a song and dance? They are trying to do the right thing for a player who got a major injury in the line of duty. Like Rick Smith said “Well, and that’s it: You’d like to say it’s business, but I don’t think you ever make a purely business decision. And so you see a kid working hard the way he has worked and you want to give him every opportunity..." But you would not think twice and cut him without doing everything the young man recover. What a great big heart you have. Things like this I think go over well with veterans and other FA who are looking to possibly sign with the Texans.

I totally agree ... there have been teams that have totally trashed players and threw them away . I don't like that , it's to much like the Gulf Grayhound Park .

As everyone else, I have hoped throughout his ordeal, Spencer would prevail. However, from the very first when I shared my thoughts on his injury, I tried to make it clear that his was a devastating one. For a smaller man, a return to normal gait could be considered a small miracle. For a man of Spencer's size, to be expected to return as a "gladiator" would be stretching even the miracle concept...........one that I'll be clinging to until the Texans have finally determined similar odds.

It could also be described as the kind of injury one might suffer for getting inbetween John McClain and a meal.

(UPDATE: Monday June 16) - Reports indicate the Texans are close to releasing T Charles Spencer due to his broken leg that could possibly end his career.

I was really pulling for him too. Hope he can some how manage to play again. Good luck Spence, in whatever you decide to do.

Who is this fan blog joker? That's some breaking news?

Maybe the Chronicle will publish my blogs/columns... here's a few:

Breaking news: The Texans are preparing to release 30 players before the end of training camp.

Breaking news: Kubiak is entering the 3rd year of his tenure in Houston.

Breaking news: Even without Dunta Robinson on the field, the Texans may employ some nickel and dime packages early in the season. That could mean some playing time for the rookie, Molden.
