Default Mc Clain's Monday report of Sports Radio 610

John McClain this morning on Sports Radio 610 talked about the TO aquisition for the first segment of the show as well as the Cowboys as a whole. He also touched on the fact of how many said the Redskins were going to cut so many players yet they only released 5 and were still able to sign key free agents. With concern with the Texans, he touched on the Walter's signing saying he's a very good special teams playing and a big receiver with decent speed. He will be the number 3 receiver. The texans with address the wide receiver problem with the either 1st pick in the 2 or 3rd round as well as Offensive Lineman. With the 4th pick, Linebacker will be addressed. As for the Free agents, he said TE Putzier is basically a done deal. Last, Ike Hilliard. McClain said he was in last night and have flown out to visit another team. He said Hilliard will either sign with the Texans or Tampa Bay. He didn't say anything about the other two free agents coming in, Sam Cowart and Paul Smith. McClain also noted that him and Justice will be at the UT Pro Day on Wednesday.

Does that mean our new coaching staff will let DC throw to him?? I hope he gets a better chance than Billy Miller. If all the Texans wanted was a RECEIVING TE, they should have kept Billy. JMO!

Billy Miller by all accounts on this board should be the first name to go up in the Bull Ring, if that is what we ultimatley call our "Hall of Fame."

I hope the Denver TE signing with us is a "done deal", because it would give
us more flexibility on Draft weekend. We wouldn't need to take a TE, but if
there was a value sitting on the Board that was too good to pass, we'd have that option. I'm reading the Denver guy is not a truly "complete" TE - he's an excellent receiver but only mediorce blocker at best. But with him and Breuner, we can get along awhile longer.

An excellent receiver/mediocre blocker combination is an upgrade for us. I'll take him!

Well Billy Miller was a WR that converted to TE wasn't he? He was also the only reciever "threat" we had that first year which is why he had as many catches as he did. I think Putzier has always been a TE. I also like that Putzier is young, only been in the league for 5 years. Hopefully he just gets better and better.

I think it is the average blocking.

Runner I would like to add, better hands and smarter against coverage. Eventhough I might have to give red-zone effectiveness to Miller. Putz also has a good YPC average. He gets down the field and finds space in the zone well. He is a guy that works with his QB and will just get open when that safety valved is needed. Will be nice watching him get blasted in the Texans Battle Red.

Stock is rising and in a virtual Tug of War with Seattle and his current team, the Vikings. My bet is either, Seattle will offer her outrageous money to get him or the vikings match whatever offer anyone else gives him.

How about one is a fairly highly sought after FA, and the other one is working at Mickey D's as a fry cook.

So can Hilliard be our number 2 reciever? I saw him back when he played for the Giants, but he didn't do anything special.

Billy Miller was cut by the Broncos before signing with the Texans, thus, Kubiak must think more highly of Putzier.

When I saw him he sold stretch runs very well, ran very nice routes, gets up field quickly and is hard to bring down with one guy.
Yea he will throw to him.
what ever happened to coaching??

I know these guys are supposed to be pros and all, but everybody has coaches right?? TE coaches.... WR coaches...... QB coaches?? what are these guys doing?? Billy Miller, I think was an excellent big play tight end...... he needed some help in blocking.... why wouldn't we keep this inexpensive talent, and teach him how to block?? Maybe he was thick headed, I don't know... but he was a good reciever, and a good guy...... it's a shame when you can't help people like that be successful.

I think it's a shame, when you've got this billion dollar business, and you shuffle through players like they were cards.... Granted, not everyone in the league is worth the time, but I think Billy was.

And your right the guy that was coaching Billy here no longer has a job, lets also keep that in mind about every other position on the field.
Coaching is also the reason why I think our Defense was so bad last year, we got players and a bunch of good athletes the coaches were just to dang conservative, on both sides.
Remember that players have to do what coaches tell them, play what is called.
None of those guys have jobs, except for special teams and rb coaches. Does anyone else remember the coaches saying the players couldn't do the things they (the coaches) wanted to do on both sides of the ball?

That ticked me off. It's kind of funny that many of these players are still working and the coaches are out of work. It plays to all of my suspicions about last season.

Man, I can't wait for the fall.
