Default Jacoby to "Start"

And other tidbits from practice.

http://www.houstontexans.com/news/St...?story_id=3665

Quote:
Head coach Gary Kubiak

(on how practice went today) “We practiced well. Our boys were locked in. It was pretty quiet out here today, which tells you your players are locked into what’s going on. We’re ready to go play, so we’re looking forward to it.”

(on who will start at wide receiver) “I’m going to start Kevin (Walter) and Jacoby (Jones). So we’ll start them two, but we’ll play all four of them, as I told you. We’re going to have a rotation system, and it will take all four of them for us to be successful without Andre (Johnson) in there. So we’ll get them all ready to go.”

(on why WR Jacoby Jones gets the start) “I think he’s earned the right. He’s played extremely well. He was working as our third. We came out here and wanted to see how he responded to this opportunity in practice this week, and he’s been very good. He’s gotten better each day he’s been out here, so the kid deserves a chance. And we’ll go get after it.”

(on the progress of WR Jerome Mathis) “I think his progress as a football player has been very good. I still think he has a ways to go to be a polished receiver down in and down out in this league. We’re expecting him to step up, and he’s got to play. So we’ll find out.”

(on the status of RB Ron Dayne) “He’ll be a game-time decision. Ronnie’s still a little sore. He did practice today. It was a little bit limited. I’ll make a game-time decision with him.”

(on if RB Ron Dayne can’t play) “Then Samkon Gado goes. It’s just one-for-one. And Ahman’s (Green) fine.”

(on if there are any updates on WR Andre Johnson) “Actually, they are going to visit with him today. The doctor is coming over today. They’ll take the immobilizer off and see where he’s at. But we’re just keeping our fingers crossed that they’ll walk out with some good news. ”

Ummm... just something to ponder here but...

On Rome today, Schaub said that Andre was day-to-day and he'd be a game time decision.

Kubiak and his jedi mind tricks.

The good thing about this whole thing is that JJ has had a whole week of practicing entirely in a 1st team capacity. This should account for a better JJ/Schaub "connection" come game time.

I think he'll have his break out game. Nothing spectacular, most likely 6 catches for about 80 yards and a TD.

I think with Schaub and O.D. still in there we still have a good chance to win this game, we still have a lot of playmakers on defense and special teams so I am confident going into this game.

Great point, I feel the same way. Kubiak is coming into his own as a coach.

One of these days, and that day may come sooner than later, our two starting recievers will be AJ and JJ. That's going to be awsome for us, and a nightmare for the rest of the NFL.

I'm down with the WR by committee:

(on who will start at wide receiver) “I’m going to start Kevin (Walter) and Jacoby (Jones). So we’ll start them two, but we’ll play all four of them, as I told you. We’re going to have a rotation system, and it will take all four of them for us to be successful without Andre (Johnson) in there. So we’ll get them all ready to go.”

Can you imagine how JJ is going to feel playing in front of 73,000 fans. I think he is gonna eat it up. Look for the ATTITUDE to shine this week. Damn Sunday cannot get here fast enough.
