From what Ive heard, Ryans will play either OLB position, but I have read that he is smart enough to play all LB positions, and at some point it college he played each. I would really like to see him at MLB with Greenwood at the weakside OLB and Wong fighting it out with Orr for the strongside.

Cowart was part of the Jets linebacking corps when they were very highly ranked a couple years ago. I think he'll put up a fight for our MLB spot.

I have no doubt they picked up cowart to be the LB leader and help along Ryans till he can take the middle as a starter. Rainer prolly insurance backup. outside I'm guessing Orr and Greenwood, with Babin or Peek filling in on occasion. I wouldnt be surprised to see us pick up another Linebacker when they are able to make a decision on Wong. we could use a decent cover LB on the outside for RB's and TE's

You and Buff are right on the money. No way we get rid and bench Orr who was one of our only LBs to actually play hard all the time, and no way we keep Ryans on the bench. He's got the smarts, and can make plays.

Anybody got an update on Terry Peirce? I heard he can be starting material that got stuck behind Trevor Pryce in Denver...... he was after all Kube's first move as a Texans HC....

He MUST like the dude....
Do you mean Al Wilson? Trevor Pryce was their massive DE . . .

strong side bakcer id like to see Ryans he will adapt quiker to eventually become a mlb and will start to gain success i think.

weakside should be wong no doubt. i really like the guy dont know why though lol o well i hope he puts manning on his back at least twice each GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DeMeco Ryans is best suited for a WLB, then MLB, then SLB

I think the starters will likely be like this at the beginning of the year:
SLB - Shantee Orr
MLB - Sam Cowart
WLB - Morlon Greenwood

Ryans will get a significant amount of playing time, and I think he will probably be in the majority of the time on nickel formations, probably with Cowart or maybe Greenwood.

Wali Rainer and/or Terry Pierce will also make the team and play a decent amount, Wong will be on PUP to start the year, and Charlie Anderson or Kenneth Pettway will make the final roster.

Cowart will be starting at least the first few games at MLB. Demeco will be at the weakside, with Orr and Greenwood switching up the strong side. Cowart is still a good MLB and far more proven than any of our LB's, no matter how much we liked the way Orr played.

I heard reports earlier today that Wong is way ahead of his recovery schedule, feeling great and should be in the mix come regular season. He will be the first X factor (injury angle) which has always seemed to rear its ugly head for the Texans. The difference being is that this year as a group, regardless of who plays where? the Texans have a much more talented & experienced group of quality NFL capable linebackers.

Is anyone else concerned about how Shante Orr will perform in a 4-3? I don't know what system he played in in college, but it is clear that his strength is rushing the passer. Is he a long term option for us? If not, we may be able to get something for a 24 year old guy with 7 sacks last year.

I went to that Texans deal on Saturday at Reliant. Coach Kubes spoke at the very end and pretty much said that Cowart will be starting in the middle, not sure about the outside guys. Mario got a standing ovation when introduced and seems like an extremely humble guy.

Orr was a defensive end at michigan, hence the pass rush ability, but I think with the tenacity he shows he could become a good weakside linebacker where he really rushes the passer, the only problem with that is Greenwood, and Ryans, play there as well. Ryans can play any of them, Greenwood took Seau's place at strongside when he was hurt so there is flexibility there but I would still say without picking up some coverage ability Orr is on the 2nd team.

I want a CB first day of next years draft, even if P-buc performs to the raised expectations this year, at least we'll have a possible fresh nickel back, or someone P-buc will have serious competition with.
