Default Secondary

I think that the improved D-Line and pass rush willl help take some pressure off the secondary which sucked last year. One big question I have always had about the secondary of the Texans are the safeties. Can someone shed some light on the talent and upside of the major players at S like C.C. Brown, Glenn Earl, Ramon Walker, John Walker.

Thanks.....

CC Brown has looked very good so far. His coverage skills have improved and he looks solid in run support, although that is a little hard to tell without full tackling. I've heard CC has been working very hard, and from the looks of it so far I'm lead to believe that. Earl has looked ok, but I haven't really noticed him much on most plays, which is generally a good thing for DBs. It seems as though he's the deep cover guy so he hasn't been involved in a whole lot of plays yet, but he's looked fairly solid. Ramon Walker has mainly played on the 3rd team and I don't see him making the team, I think Simmons and Michael Stone will probably be the backup safeties. John Walker has had a lot of rookie mistakes but he seems to be improving and learning well from Hoke, and he has pretty good size and athleticism. I think he could definitely make the active roster depending on whether they bring in any more vets, and if they do I think they'll at least keep him on practice squad.

I think John Walker will be on the same plan as McKenzie was - practice squad for a year and then the roster the next. McKenzie has digressed very well and in a year I expect to see big things out of John. I think if we bring in another vet we will take advantage of the fact that he is eligable for the practice squad.

Yup Kubes is in love with him. I'm sure he's in the mix but he's most likely backup behind the solid starters we have in Brown and Earl.

We have a group of young corners and safeties, so drastic improvement wouldn't be completely unexpected. A lot of the stuff from last season seems a bit fuzzy, but IIRC, the corners played well in the last few games.
