If they keep Hollings and not Wells, I'm gonna be really ticked. I would be very tempted to use Morency as the #2 over Wells, though. I don't know.

Hollings is a bust. Wells has proven that he can rush for 100 in a game.

Is it a given that Walker is better than Travis Johnson, or are they still deciding that?

Nevermind, I guess the answer is Yes and Yes.

Is it just me, or does anybody think that Mathis might be a #2 receiver?

he might be in the future, but i think its way too early to say he's our #2 man right now. he's caught 2 passes in one game, so i don't know.

oops! he's a lock before swinton and kasper, just forgot about him because he's injured and hasn't seen any pre-season action yet (at least to my knowledge).

despite the popular opinion (or so it seems to me) that mathis is the WR embodiment of god, i think he only see's action in 4 and 5 wide sets (barring injury of course). it's bradford's job to lose (this season) and if he goes down i say armstrong gets the intial nod before jerome. after this season though, i think the coaches already have mathis in mind for the texan's future

I think that we should let Armstrong take Gaffney's spot as a # 2 and groom Mathis to take Bradford's spot but that is just MO. Bradford will not be here after this year IMO.

I was hoping with his hands he could make a push to become a great receiver in the league ala Drew Bennett. Both DA and Gaffney have had a few years which is the norm for a receiver to really start producing. To go an extra step and put myself out there I would be surprised if we didn't have one of the best receiving corps in the league this year if blocking is sufficient.

I wish they'd put Jabar Gaffney on IR, and figure out a way to keep Sloan Thomas. I have a feeling he'd be a good one if given enough time.

I would be floored if Hollings aint gone. Wells can do both backup rb and fb and a special teams person. I like sloan... Armstrong has the best hands on the team, but if he has difficulty getting open, that dont help. I dont see us dropping armstrong though. Believe me, would rather have sloan

What's Armstrong's problem? He can't run, how hard is that?

J.Wells WILL be on the team . He's the type of player Capers really likes , HARD WORKER , Great special teams player , can play multiple positions and doesnt put the ball on the ground .

Hollings should be let go , they need to cut their losses with him and use the roster spot on a player more capable of helping the team .

Reciever is probably the most competitive spot on the roster

Mathis was drafted because of his pure speed and the good ole P word .... Potential . That said , He's a VERY RAW talent who recieved Very little coaching at his position . Hampton doesnt even have a WR coach .... He will make the team but probably wont see a whole lot of action unless Bradford is hurt or is totally un-productive by mid-season .

Sloan Thomas deserves to make the team based on what he's done so far in training camp and pre-season .... Armstrong would be tough to let go and neither of them would clear waivers for the practice squad . Someone would pick them up .
Swinton isnt a lock to make the team . With Mathis and Buchannon both able to return punts / kicks he will have to show that he is valuable as a reciever to make this team , thats why they wanted to rid themselves of J.J.Moses ... one dimensional .


TE ..... Billy Miller may not make the team this year . Being one dimensional doesnt help his cause . The Texans will probably keep 3 TE's but will one of them be Miller ? The play of Matt Murphy and Marcellus Rivers could spell the end for him .

As for the Defense .... I think SESupergenius pretty much got it right , that is likely who we will see make the team .

Im wondering if the Texans will keep Bryan Pittman for nothing more than their long snapper ....Thats a luxury spot and one better used on a player who can add depth elsewhere on the team . Its time Mckinney made himself useful .

I actually like J. Anderson more than I do Wells or Hollings, but that aint gonna happen. Well has taken too many snaps this preseason (lets see what he gets this next game) so I figure that coupled with the fact that Hollings was a high 2nd rounder we'd keep him. It's not that I dislike someone when I am excluding them, its just that we have only 53 spots, 25 more or less on offense.

Yes we will keep the longsnapper, it's an incredibley valuable position, especially when things go wrong.

This has already been dicussed in another thread, but here's a repeat of my projected 53 man roster.

I can see some notable players like Billy Miller, Bradford (Armstrong is cheaper & locked up for 2 more years), Hollings, Ramon Walker, Weary, & Orr losing their jobs this year. Hopefully, CC can trade one or two of them for draft picks or an upgrade at one of our other positions. I'd sure hate to be the coaches & have to decide which ones to cut. We're actually going to be able to cut some quality players this year.

Our secondary should be the envy of the league this year.

Anyway, here's my picks, based on just 2 preseason games.

OFFENSE

QB: Carr, Ragone, Banks
WR: AJ, Armstrong, Gaffney, Mathis, Swinton
RB: DD, Morency, Wells
FB: Norris
OL: Riley, Pitts, McKinney, Wiegert, Wade, Wand, M.Brown, Washington
TE: Bruener, Murphy

DEFENSE

DL: Walker, Payne, Smith, TJ, Deloach, Ioane
LB: Peek, Wong, Greenwood, Babin, C.Anderson, Chamberlin, Evans
CB: Dunta, Buchanon, Faggins, McKenzie
FS: Coleman, Simmons
SS: Earl, C.Brown

SPECIAL TEAMS

PK: Brown
P: Stanley
KR: Swinton, Mathis
PR: Swinton, Mathis
LS: Make yourself useful McKinney (I can't see us taking up a roster spot for just a LS. Sorry, Pittman)

TAXI SQUAD:

Pettway (LB)
Symons (QB)
S. Thomas (WR)
Wishom (CB)
Hodgdon (OL)
