Default Robinson's aura rubs off on Bennett

Quote:
Fred Bennett is standing beside one of his heroes, the guy he wanted to be just like. About the last thing he could have imagined is that he and Dunta Robinson would be teammates again.
Quote:
During his three seasons, Robinson has been one of the few players who showed his anger at the way the franchise was being operated. He fumed after a 2005 loss in Baltimore. He took a not-so-veiled shot at David Carr last season.

Robinson believes in his heart that things finally are turning the right way, that the Texans really might be respectable.

"You never get used to losing," he said. "No one remembers a loser. This season, we've got a chance to do something we've never done. I think it's the best team we've had. We haven't played a game yet, but I'm optimistic."

God I can't wait for the season to start.

I get the feeling that Bennett and J Jones will be starting like Koobs did with the good rookies last season.

I love it

Quote:
"I'm a good player," Robinson said, "but I want to be better than that. I've got a lot of personal goals. I know I've got to play a lot better and do my part to help this football team win. I want to go against Andre (Johnson) every practice. I want to go against the guy I think is the best receiver in the game. It's a matter of competing and doing the best I can. When a receiver catches the ball, I'm starting to take that personally. In years past, it was a hand clap and move on to the next play. Now it's personal."
(From DRob)

I was wondering on draft day why we were passing on CB's, but when they announced Fred Bennett, I was very happy. How I could forget about the big Gamecock is beyond me.

He will start this season....I know it.

He might at that. He looked pretty good yesterday. The 2nd & 3rd team got lots of reps. And he stayed step-for-step whenever they tried to go long on his side.

And D-Rob IS playing with attitude. I don't think AJ caught but one or two balls on him.

O.D. looks good too. FFL players, don't overlook him. Maybe it was because of the playset they were running but he looks to be Schaub's favorite checkdown option.

I heard some talk that Bennett may be moved to FS? Is this total speculation?

a bunch of fans got mad at Dunta for not accepting losing...but those were mostly Carr fans....you know, the guys that were comfortable with losing.

It's okay, HuttoKarl.

We're a more open and tolerant society.

You don't have to keep sending subliminal messages with your bananas, esp. the ones that whip.

yeah, it's probably the same fans that were saying he's a second rate DB because he can't cover for 10+ seconds while our defensive line takes a nap.

I have criticized the Safeties, but never D-Rob, but yes a lot of people critize without taking everything into account. It is like the espin way of talking football.

Default Re: Robinson's aura rubs off on Bennett

Oh great, now we are becoming DRob apologists. I swear this fan base has a higher excuse-generating potential than any other team I've ever been a fan of.

Is Drob great? Nope. Is he very good? Yes.
Im sorry, but go back and watch the games from last year. Drob visibly gave up on numerous occassions. In instances where he didn't have to cover for 10+ seconds he still gave up position and easy catches to 2nd rate WRs

He had a bad year last year, as did our entire secondary. Is he garbage? Hell no, but he did NOT play to his potential at all. And it wasn't all the DLs fault

6.0 197 lbs and 4.47 at his school's pro day. Bennett has those things. Now if he can get a few plays under his belt, he could ease my worries on the #2 CB. If we can avoid injuries, have good play at CB & #2 WR and our backs do what I think they can = a good season. Our 1st, 3rd & 4th could address FS, LT (if necessary) and center in 08. That does not include free agency with a mite more $ available.

Default Re: Robinson's aura rubs off on Bennett

Just because you dont overtly critize aplayer does it mean you make excuses. Not at all, I gues I should have not said never. I should have said hardly. I do not think he played his best but I guess I put more of that on his supporting cast without knowing as much as some. I am no expert, if I was I would be coaching ... and I did not see all of the games thanks to being in Austin.

Please explain to me how if someone is not overtly critical, they make excuses. Then again I saw people wanting Kubiak to be fired after one season, so I guess every person who said he should not be fired made excuses. Again, I am not sure what excuses were made. If I made an excuse, I guess I am to stupid to realize it.

I was referring more to the post above you where someone claimed people were calling DRob a 2nd rate CB because he couldn't cover for 10+ seconds.

That seemed to be an excuse to me.
