Haven't seen much of Earl play, only starting seeing full Texan games this season, is he a big hitter?

He had become a pretty hard hitter in 2006 before missing all of last season. I think his most famous moment was blasting Jeremy Shockey's teeth out against the Giants in New Jersey. It was pretty sweet.

That said - he's not good in pass coverage... much better at run support. Demps took his job last year, and Earl's not getting it back unless something bad or unexpected happens in training camp.

JayCee, are you a Kiwi or are you just located there?

I wouldn't exactly put it like this. Earl was injured and THEN Demps was signed. It's not like both were on the team and Demps took the starter spot away. But I do agree that Earl is better in run support.

Right, CC actually took Earl's job. Not Demps. My bad.

CC didn't take Earl's job either. After Earl went down, Jason Simmons took his spot.

But - he's got the job now and it's his to lose going into training camp. (assuming he re-signs, which he will because nobody's going to give us a 2nd rounder for him). That's all I'm saying.

Sigh. The off-season.

So is CCs natural position free or strong safety?

CC is naturally a strong safety. In the Texans system, however, don't the safeties pretty much play the same position, which make them interchangable?

Would like to see Turk back too. Except for a couple of upsies, he served us quite well.

The SS in the Texans system still has more run support responsibilites, but you are correct in the sense that SS is not always "in the box" and FS is not a true center fielder. Given that they have not had a true centerfielder type, I don't know how much personnel has dictated the scheme.
