I am a little shaky about the start of the season with a rookie LT going against the Eagles Dline in week one and then Dwight Freeney in week two.

As for the other two, I think they will do fine and either they will have a good game or an unnoticed game.

Don't forget Demeco and Mario, thats 5 rookies starting if i'm counting them all. Says a lot about our draft and what Kubiak thinks of them. If all of these guys are ballers, we'll have a hell of a football team for years to come.

Hopefully it is more indicative of our Rookies excelling at their respective postions, and not a statement against our talent from last year(which wouldn't be saying much)

Yes it does, and it says a lot about last year's roster, too. Around the league there seem to be quite a few ex-Texans getting cut without getting re-signed anywhere. Still waiting for those re-signings of Jerry DeLoach and Todd Wade, for instance. Anyone? Anyone? Tony Banks, maybe? Marcellus Rivers?

(Don't let the door hit ya, Charley.)

I'm also optimistic about this young roster--especially the defensive rookie starters--but I'm also prepared to shrug my shoulders at a slow (possibly 1-3) start. It could very well happen and I don't think it's an indication that the new era is doomed. This team's destined for late-season wins, I think, so I hope that these young guys get a fair shot from the fans during the first half of the season.

In 2004 we had 4 starters on defense (Not sure how many we had on offense ... if any) look how that turned out.

Just think, that's six draft picks that will be starting (including the traded 5th for Moulds). That's not a bad draft at all.

well spencer's biggest problem early on is not gonna be giving up the sack so much as holding calls, he has bad(rookie) footwork and so he gets out of position at times and his nature does not allow him to get beat, so he grabs on. depending on the timing, this could end up a huge drive killer. I hope he works on his footwork everyday.

he's the only rookie starter that scares me some.

It doesn't suprise me, this is Kubes team so he is going to go with his players.

Also it shows how bad the talent the last coaching staff had accumulated (also it would only be four if DD wasn't hurt).

5 starting rookies...it almost like an expansion team...

Does starting a rookie at LT give David Carr more time to prove himself?

I think its great the Texans are starting all of these rookies. As HC Kubiak, GM
Smith, and others have said these guys will make rookie mistakes, and some
of those mistakes may cost us football games. So be it, because IMO we need to be in long-term mode again, which is to say only the most foolish
optimists would think we have a chance for the playoffs this year. That will take a couple of seasons or so.

Spencer plays like a bull. He looked like a "smash mouth" player to me.
I think Lundy is the real deal...time will tell if that is true or not. Daniels won't have to do much to show better than Bruener.

I doubt seriously that he will ever replace the brute blocking that Bruener had afforded us.

I agree CND, bruener was basicly a converted tackle with some agility. daniels is more like a converted reciever. a big one, but without the strength and blocking. bruener was one of, if not , the best blocking tight end in football. we were very fortunate to have him
