Not to disagree with your overriding sentiment, but RB is the most common position for a rookie to make an immediate impact. Blue's not going to be the main guy, but could be a real steal as a backup to Foster. I definitely think he'll be better than Ward, Forsett, Dennis Johnson, Cierre Wood, etc. If the Texans run the ball as much as we all suspect they will, he could very well put up a season comparable to Ben Tate's couple good seasons.

I think a rookie RBs biggest thing is pass protection and ball security .

I just want to know if OB calls his guys kids, and if he turns away when FG's are kicked because he is too scared to look.

So tired of the past Texans that didn't have that intensity and passion.. OBrien so far seems to be the real deal.

Just my opinion, but I think Savage starts sooner than people think. Wouldn't be surprised if he was the starter week 1.

I wouldn`t either. I think Savage will start sometime this season. I wouldn`t say opening day, because I think they want to go "smart" and let him sit and learn behind a veteran first. But I think Savage will be a very fast learner and I definetly think they want to see what they have in him before the 2015 draft.

I think the goal is to have Savage starting at some point this season. I think they want him to start day 1 but I'm not sure if he's going to be ready. But I think that's what they're working toward and have been since they signed Fitzpatrick.

Fitzgerald = Banks, a vet for the rookie (or near rookie) to "beat out" after doing so "unexpectedly" well in TC they just can't hold him back.

I like Clowney's attitude about working harder with JJ Watt as his mentor. Pretty much what I thought would happen in spite of all the so-called 'experts'.

I'm more excited about this season than I was heading into last season. I didn't expect 2-14 but I did not expect that team to sniff any superbowls.

This team, I think is going to be one I can be proud of. Enjoy watching them grow. Even if they make mistakes along the way

I have no doubt he will, no need for him to risk anything in OTAs, let him heal a little longer. It wont hurt.
