Schaub said he believes those backs will prove interchangeable, and that simplification will be the key to an improved rush attack.

"If you really look at the offense as far as the running game, it's a very simplistic scheme," he said. "There are not many moving parts, there are not many assignments that are different across the board. It's just, 'learn your roles in what we're doing.'...
I'm sure getting excited for the season to start. I really wonder who our RB's are going to be.

And now for a little Vince Young hate:

PK: You've got Reebok, Spaulding, Powerade and you were on the cover of Madden last year -- how's life as a pitchman?

VY: It's going good, my dream coming true, a lot of great partnerships. Reebok is doing a lot of great things with the VY Electrify that's out right now. It's pretty much a dream come true. It's a pretty cool deal to do.
Just what we thought. Glad he's more concerned with making commercials than winning championships. (just a little heckling from a texans fan)

I still have my money on Steve Slaton Leading them in rushing yards by the end of the season.

Default Re: Schaub confident in revamped running game

I think Chris Brown will have the most impact on the rushing game. If the ZBS does it's job getting to the second tier quick I think we'll see either starter hopefully taking less big hits that might wear on Green and Brown. It'll be interesting to see if we do keep 4 RB's going into the season who will get that third spot.


Slaton will be an interesting varible as a third down back but I don't expect this staff to push him into the starting lineup barring injury.Even then I'd expect him to split carries.


What strikes me as being very different from last year not only do we have the addition of Gibbs on the OL but I think we have MUCH better options if our #1 RB goes down. Walker while not overwhelming in athleticism has enough all around game to be effective on a call up and If Taylor is called up I think he can be an effective runner. Bottom line top to bottom this is a better RB situation and I think this staff will have more trust if one person goes down to keep with the running game.

My grooms cake was a football field with a big football in the middle with the Texans logo on it. It was awesome until I had a piece and the green icing turned my whole mouth GREEN. So half of our wedding pictures I have a goofy smile on my face because I was trying not to show my teeth. Just a heads up, stay away from the green icing on your wedding day, club soda doesn't even work

Got my TC tickets too, so I'll be there Saturday morning. I'm stoked about the upcoming season. It'll be interesting to see how Ahman's knee holds up. I think Chris Brown is gonna really flourish in the ZBS. Plenty of depth at RB, so I believe they're gonna be way improved from last season. Bring on Pittsburgh!

Is it just me, or does Schaub make the goofiest faces in action? In games last season it seemed like every time the camera got him after a play he'd be making some expression.

No it's not just you. Although most of the expressions I see - look as though they are hippie lettuce induced...
