Default Re: Texans 2014 OTAs begin May 27

Really, I'd prefer for the questions to be asked here and I really need more questions:

Ask Me Anything about Texans OTAs

I'm away from about 9:30 to 2:30 on most OTA days. Plus life. And I get asked similar questions on Twitter, FB, real life, etc.

I am not complaining, I'm just trying to find something that works for me and works for fans. Trying to figure out how to answer the most questions such that the most fans can get their answers answered and they can read it in one place. The sign-in there is really easy and you can ask as many questions as you want.

And that I get notified when there's a new question is handy. The threads are hard to go back and find questions in.

You can also be a follower on the conversation. So if there's a new answer, you can get notified if you are that hardcore.

But really, I am soliciting good questions. Good questions make this better for everyone. You can either speculate about what's going on, or I can just tell you, and I want to tell you.

SHUT YOU DOWN!!!!!

/actually I just wanted to be able to type that.

I can't answer direct questions about injuries but have talked about whether I have concern for ones based on observable stuff.
Hey Steph, I know you've been watching these for years now....

Can you see an attitude shift because of this new coaching regime?


Just looking at the pics it seems much more vibrant and fired up out there.

Really! Please ask these questions at the Ask Me Anything convo page. I am begging. Easier for me, better for fans who don't know about Texans Talk and finding this question inside a big long thread.

But as long as I'm doing a drive by....

I think that anyone who says there is an obvious vibrant/fired up feeling out there remarkably different than previous camps is just doing some wishful thinking and bullbleeping. Drills are different, and I'm guessing they want to get that bad taste out of their mouths from previous years and impress new staff, but nah, not objectively more fired up. They were pretty fired up last year before the egg laying.

Will say at some positions, the coaching is more involved and hands-on.

One of the reasons I copped a squat here & not that other board was because you were associated with this board & you had a connect to the team.


Not telling you how to do your business, I understand it's easier for you, just going to miss your insight.

Sorry, I posted before I saw your additional post asking for that.

Thanks for replying though!

Love your insight.

Default Re: Texans 2014 OTAs begin May 27

Some people have a lot of trouble comprehending.

I'll never forget the test a teacher gave us in HS one day.

At the very top it said please read ALL instructions carefully before starting the test.

Long story short, people started to fill in the answers to all these complex questions.

But if you read all of the instructions, the last one said put your name in the top right, fill in nothing else, and wait for everyone to finish.

Those that filled in their name and waited (about roughly 50%) got a 100. Everyone else got a zero because they didn't follow directions.

All I know is several posters here deserve to get a zero. It's not that complex folks. You were politely asked 3 times to ask questions on the site that Steph left and all of you ignored it. Are you that dense?

Default Re: Texans 2014 OTAs begin May 27

recently asked...
Quote:
This question isn't unique to this season and since you've seen your fair share of OTAs, training camps, and in-season practices I'd like your opinion on a discussion that's going around the message board:
We know that O'Brien is installing his new offense now and will be doing so until the season begins. All four QBs are getting reps and learning as best they can this summer. But once the season begins the focus shifts to installing the specific game plan for each given week and making sure the starters have sufficient reps to assure they have their roles down pat.

Rightly or wrongly, it's widely believed, once the season begins, the youngster - in our case Mr. Savage - will be running the scout team; i.e., emulating the opposing offensive scheme. This leaves precious few learning reps for said youngster to get reps in the shiny, new, O'Brien offense.

Two questions (1) is this the way it really works and (2) will this lessen the likelihood of Savage starting before the season is done.

Thanks again.
Quote:
Too early. Here's how things really work at practice. There's lots of media gossip at practice as we stand around watching players work or wait to ask questions. You have your thoughts, you bounce thoughts off of others, they bounce thoughts off of you. (And you try to guard against group think).

At this point, watching the players work, I have no idea at all what the order of QBs will be going into the season. And I think in chatting with others, I don't think there is much of a consensus at this point.

And we are going to get little feedback at all from O'Brien.

I hate to bring up the name Brady in this sort of convo because Brady is The Tom Brady Best Draft Pick Evaar, but his rookie year as a 6th round pick, he started the year 4th string, and ended it as a backup, and then his second year took the job and never looked back.

If I were evaluating who is doing what at a completely unsettled QB spot, I'd have two basic considerations: 1. Who is the QB whose performance and development isn't going to totally screw over the rest of the team while he's playing? 2. Who is the talent worth spending developmental reps on?

Consideration 1 leans toward experienced guys. Consideration 2 very much favors Tom Savage.

I don't have a clue how this is going to work out, and if I were guessing from what I've seen and heard, I don't think the Texans clearly know this sort of thing right now either. They might have ideas of what they'd like to have happen, but until the guys show what they can do in the installation and learning of the offense, I don't think it is sorted out.

If she answers, she answers. If she don't... I think we'll get by.

Sorry, but I don't want to go to another site, register, to ask a question. I'll ask here. If she doesn't answer, hopefully someone else would give their opinion.

And people have politely declined by not going there (I'm sure some folks have). As Tkyss pointed out, a lot of us are members of this board because we like the insight here. Frankly, any attempt to drive traffic away from this site, that has been so good to us, is irksome.

People do what they want and I'm not one to jump on people, but you made a bigger issue of it, so there you go.

Default Re: Texans 2014 OTAs begin May 27

actually one of the questions came from here
Quote:
TexansTalk.com
(6 hours ago)

"Hey Steph, I know you've been watching these for years now....
Can you see an attitude shift because of this new coaching regime?"

Quote:
I've read/heard a lot of opinions about more energy etc, and I don't see that. Under Kubiak, they always went quickly from one activity to another, etc. Was pretty up tempo with very little downtime other than for water breaks.


I will say that the specifics of the drills are different under O'Brien, and that at specific positions, it looks like there is some more active coaching. It's new to everyone, so there is learning for everyone including the vets.
there's more but if you aren't interested in going there...

People do what they want and I'm not one to jump on people, but you made a bigger issue of it, so there you go.
I love this board. I do. Hello, I'm a mod.

I am not trying to drive traffic away from the board. I am creating new content that can be linked here. You guys are just helping me create your own article with the content you want to read.

So, instead of going "grrrr, why are we reading about O'Brien's music selections," you can go, "I wonder what is happening with bleeblabloo" and find out if there is an answer to that question. Made to order.

I'm just trying to collect all the information in one place so it doesn't get lost. Which is what a Reply All convo does better than here. And I don't want to miss questions that are in various threads or snuck between the fun digressions that happen here.

I get notifications when someone asks a question, so I know that it was asked which can't happen here, nor would I want that.

I'm totally cool if people want to cut and paste entire parts of that conversation and put them here. I just have a hard time answering stuff on my blog, on Twitter, on Facebook, and internally in MB threads and just want to help because I see various debates here speculating about stuff. And there's no sense totally speculating on some things where I can just go, dude, this is the answer.

And there's a lot of stuff like that because the Texans aren't recording/transcribing as many player interviews as they did in previous OTAs. But I've been there for a lot of that stuff.

And I just saw that some TexansTalk folks put some questions there, so thank you very much for helping me write this content.

But, it's all cool. Everybody is cool.

Texans have discussed with Fitzpatrick how he can limit turnovers this year. Previous systems, background, intelligence good fits for team
