more good news..puff pieces probably but always good to hear

•The Houston Texans are determined to make tight end a major component of their offense. They have two good ones in Mark Bruener and Jeb Putzier, whom new coach Gary Kubiak brought with him from Denver, as well as fourth-round draft pick Owen Daniels from Wisconsin. Another candidate at the position is Bennie Joppru, who has been sidelined by groin muscle and knee injuries since joining the Texans in 2003 as a second-round draft pick from Michigan. Joppru is healthy and expects to get a legitimate shot to stick with the new coaching regime, which, he told me, has helped create an unmistakably higher level of excitement within the team. "Last year at this time, there were probably about 10 guys down in Houston working out (at the team's facility)," Joppru said. "On (July 6), we had an optional run and 27 or 30 guys showed up for the run. There's a whole new attitude down there. We're all working hard. I think we're going to make our fans happy this year."

While this is an interesting and positive take, I can't put too much stock into what he's saying. After all, the only thing we're going on is off-season workouts, and we have yet to even hit training camp.

Carr's arm strength, accuracy and footwork in the pocket can only truly be tested when he's actually pressured by opposing players that want to take him out.

I'm encouraged by the positive comments being made by Kubiak and others, but honestly, the proof is in the pudding. And we don't get to taste any of that pudding for another month or so.

....Still it is good to see the players buying into what Kubiak is selling. Believe me folks, we will to in another few weeks. Can't come soon enough for me.

I am more concerned with his decision making than his arm strength and accuracy

I really think it'll all fall into place this year for some of our veterans who where "under peforming" the past few years. David has the intangables that you can't coach someone to have so and I think the skills he was lacking Kubiak will be able to instill in him. He ought to be a totally different caliber of QB this year and I'm excited to see him in a new system that has a winning mentality.
