Default Spencer Our Left Tackle, Winston Our Right.

Title say all...
Quote:
Kubiak said both players will be tackles in the NFL, and thinks Spencer will begin on the left and Winston on the right.
According to Kubiak hes gonna put Spencer at LT and Winston at RT.Guess Mckinney will still be our RG.

Ive never met David Carr, but I can tell you that my main objective is going to be to make sure that the running backs have great holes to run through, that the quarterback has unbelievable time to throw, and that the receivers can have time to catch the ball." - Eric Winston

That's interesting and very contrary to the way I thought things would turn out...

Spencer's supposed weakness is speed rushers, which he'll see plenty of on the left side, and Winston's weakness is supposed to be drive blockers, which he'll see a lot of on the right side...

Very interesting indeed...

Anybody else think that this could be Kubiak's way of improving our young bookends' weaknesses? Winston can't help but get stronger if he's forced to block against a strong LE like Weaver, and Spencer will become better at handling speed rushers since he's going to be going against Super Mario and Babin or Peek...

They will be our tackles in the future but there is no way Kubiak starts two rookie tackles after the team is coming off a 2-14 year.

Seth Wand, Fred Weary, Zach Weigert, Todd Wade, Todd Washington, Eric Winston

If we could find a way to start 5 of them it would be like the Texans answer to the Killer B's. I'm not sure what sound effect they would use, though.

A bunch of stories in the chronic today....

Quote:
...Spencer, 6-4 and 352 pounds, is slated to compete with Seth Wand for the starting job at left tackle. Winston, 6-6 and 310 pounds, should compete with Zach Wiegert and Todd Wade at right tackle.

"Good things come to those who wait," coach Gary Kubiak said after the Texans' third-round selections were announced. "This is awesome. I can't believe it panned out this way."


Pitts back to guard

In anticipation of being able to improve their personnel at tackle through the draft, the Texans already had Chester Pitts working at left guard, where he started throughout the 2004 season.

Steve McKinney is moving to right guard, where he has never played. He spent the first four years of his career at left guard with the Indianapolis Colts before spending four years at center for the Texans. Free-agent signee Mike Flanagan is the Texans' new center.

"Every coach has their opinion of where they think your best position is and where you can contribute most," Pitts said. "That's what the new staff feels will be best. It's known that I prefer to play tackle, but I will play guard.

"I expect us to get better this year, especially because I believe Kubiak's (zone-blocking) system is solid and effective. I believe everybody will be better, and things will go better for all of us."

After focusing on the defensive side of the ball in the first two rounds by selecting North Carolina State defensive end Mario Williams No. 1 overall and Alabama outside linebacker DeMeco Ryans with the 33rd pick, the Texans gave their offense a boost in round three.

As soon as Spencer and Winston heard their names called, they realized they were going to a team that could instantly use their help. It was the ideal scenario for both.

"As an offensive lineman, if you're focused on anything else other than making sure the dirt stays off your quarterback, then you're probably playing the wrong position," Winston said. "I've never met David Carr, but I can tell you that my main objective is going to be to make sure that the running backs have great holes to run through, that the quarterback has unbelievable time to throw, and that the receivers can have time to catch the ball."...
Sorry (not really) but the more time reflecting on this draft, I think it was the smarter move in the long term. As mentioned numerous times this was the correct "football decision".

Winston - Pitts - Ferguson - McKinney - Spencer

is that the starting line?

He certainly has the size...perhaps the coaches think he has the feet too.

The best thing rookie tackles are good: drive killing penalties. They will probably sit and learn for a year with a little spot duty.

One of them may beat out Wand, however.

you know I hope this guy has mean streak. I think this is the first time I have heard a lineman say this (I realize I may have missed a few thousand quotes or two in 4 years). I used to get tired of the nonchallant ways the linemen would walk back to the huddle after Carr is picking himself off of the turf (not saying Carr didn't put himself in the position of a sack or two), but actually hearing a linemen come in with that attitude pleases me

From what I have read, he does have a mean streak and.. yes...it is VERY good to hear an O-lineman have that attitude. Hope they all have it or catch it.

"Every coach has their opinion of where they think your best position is and where you can contribute most," Pitts said. "That's what the new staff feels will be best. It's known that I prefer to play tackle, but I will play guard.

"I expect us to get better this year, especially because I believe Kubiak's (zone-blocking) system is solid and effective. I believe everybody will be better, and things will go better for all of us."


I think this verifies what most of us were thinking last year, that the team had lost faith in Pendry.

I worry about how we keep trying to play guys out of their natural position. Look what happened when you moved McKinney from LG to C.

Even if Wiegert beats out Mckinney in training camp he'll still get injured allowing Mckinney to step into the starting role
