Just speculating, but perhaps he plays better when he has help over the top? Reportedly he's a guy who jams the receiver and plays press coverage, so along with that scouting report, it sounds like he's bound to get burned without a safety helping him if he messes up at the LOS.

That was the main reason we took interest in him. In Dallas they played a lot of off-coverage which was not his strong suit. They say his press is pretty good.

I doubt the Texans will pick a corner in the 1st round this time since that would be a permanent solution to what could be a temporary problem. I don't think they've given up on D-Rob yet and Bennett looks like a starter too. Better to get a veteran that can fill in until they can find out if Dunta can return as good as before, later on. If he can't, they can use a high draft choice later.

Kubiak has already said he is going to treat injuries like the player is never coming back. So in other words he is going to act like Daunta does not exsist when evaluating the team needs. Then again what have we done at left tackle.

I love throwing this crap out there to confuse the masses.

It would only confuse them if they listened to you.

And since no one listens to you...

Now if he struggles I think there is a chance the rookie could get playing time later in the season, but I think Reeves is given, at least, a Faggins-esque chance to start.
Well we started a rookie and a safety playing out of position. If the rook and the soph are the best talents coming out of camp, they start.
