Not aiming this at you 'cak, but to the DW fan club.
So why would anyone care about Taylor?

Exactly.


The Texans are giving them a shot. If the line does what it's supposed to do, then both Taylor, and Walker could be very productive. Hopefully, bringing in Slathon(sp) & Smtih keeps them from thinking they've got it made.

Next year, we'll hopefully bring in another RB, undrafted, free agent, I don't care. Until we find the guy who is the guy, let's keep bringing them in.

Walker simply isn't a strong enough runner to make this squad. Perhaps Taylor doesn't make it either. However, his set of tools give him better opportunity. He's around 230 lbs, runs hard, and is decisive. Sounds like a Kubiak/Gibbs guy to me.

What fumbling problem? You mean when Kubiak laid into a UDFA rookie for putting the ball on the ground two years ago.

Taylor wasn't the first rookie to come into camp and put the ball on the ground and he certainly won't be the last (word is, Slaton had quite a few fumbles in his first mini camp also.......it happens).

I agree. Taylor had decent speed for a guy that size as well. Which is something we've sorely lacked at the position since our inception. The addition of Slaton varifies the coaches feel the same way.

Watching Dayne attempt to get to the outside was similar to the likes of a couple snails having sex.

The fumbling problem that Kubiak was getting on him for during TC last year prior to his injury. Because he was STILL putting the ball on the ground.

Will he have that same speed? I hope so.

Then he was dropping the ball in the OTA's or minicamp. But it was last year before he got injured.

I don't know, Gary. I suppose we'll find out come TC. It'll be a position with good competition to watch.

Other positions I'll be zooming in on

CB
S
OLB
DT

Walker is going to make the team IMO:

Quote:
He was a changed guy from the standpoint of intensity and actually having a sense of urgency that every play meant something to him,” Harris said. “The value of being let go and not being with anybody really helped him. ... He continues to grow and knows there is another level that he can reach.”

The next level is challenging for one of the team’s top two running back spots .

“I think he’s pushing them (the team’s other running backs), very much so,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said. “He’s a better player (this year); he really is. (His) effort level is consistent; it’s pro material now.”"
