Here's what Lance Z had to say about today's practice

http://blogs.chron.com/fantasyfootba...m_saturda.html
Quote:
1. The chemistry between the WRs and the QBs looked pretty good considering it is so early in camp. If the Texans can establish the running game, the play-action passing is going to be a MAJOR force this year because André Davis will keep getting open deep and because the TEs are going to be open a ton. Andre Johnson is a given and Kevin Walter is very underrated. Good to see the passing game look sharp early on.

2. Jauque Reeves didn't have a great practice on Saturday morning and his body language needs some work too. Coach Hoke and Coach Rhodes got on Reeves a couple of times because of mistakes he was making and he just hangs his head and kind of slumps around. I don't really mean to jump the guy so soon in practice but he better get used to having coaches jump him and try and coach him up. This is a grown man's league and the Texans are counting on Reeves this year.

3. LT Duane Brown had a nice day in pass protection drills. Brown did a nice job with his hands and with redirecting pass rushers as they tried to make swim moves on him. His technique has already improved a great deal from when I watched him at the Shrine Game practices which were here in Houston back in January.

4. DE Chaun Thompson could have a bigger role on this defense than expected. Many times it is much easier for a pass rusher to have success in pass rushing drills than it is in a game because it isn't always one on one during a game. There is help sometimes from the guard if a DE spins inside. With all that said, Thompson has good speed off the edge, not great, but he has some nice swim moves and spins that are hard to ignore out there. If Rosevelt Colvin isn't the man opposite Mario Williams during pass rushing situations, it will be Thompson.

5. Dunta Robinson is coming along NICELY. I spoke with a couple of people close to the situation who both said that Robinson is coming along much faster than the time-table that was set for his rehab. Granted it is a contract year and I'm sure that Robinson wants to get back out on the field, but there is a chance now that Robinson might not be put on the regular season PUP list. I think if you had asked anyone with the Texans just a month ago they would have told you that they thought the PUP list was inevitable, but right now he is just on the preseason PUP list and he's already running and cutting better than expected.

There was one "I forgot" that I noticed. There's a WR running with the 3rd teamers, #17 LeRon McCoy, he made some pretty nice catches. Kid has pretty good speed, good hands, and is tall and sturdy (219 lbs according to the roster). David Anderson better watch his back.

Also, obviously this is my perception, but Brink has the slowest release of all our QBs, at least from what I saw this morning. And his passes weren't alway on target. He's definitely a "project".

Didn't see Shane Boyd throw any passes; all I saw him do this morning was hand off. I've been wondering if he was truly good enough to make Quinn Gray expendable. Perhaps tomorrow he'll run the 3rd team 7-on-7s.

Hey Lance,


did Mario go up against Brown today? And if so, who had the upper hand?

Z: I saw them matched up once and Brown got the best of him.

Interesting.... can't wait till they put on pads. Then we'll truly know who will get the better of who.

LOL. I know what you mean.

I want to make a comment here...but it's like "Uh, I'm not there and I don't know anything and can't say anything because I can't see what's going on."

It's a helpless feeling. I wait for the daily updates like a dad waits for an update on how things are going in the delivery room. I'm all pacing around the waiting room, biting my fingernails...just waiting to hear something from the doctor. "Any news doc? How's she doing?"

I thought I saw a poster say that Matt Schaub had his knee wrapped? What's that about? Does anybody know? And I guess Briesel's nose and some cramping with Taylor is the extent of injuries thus far, right? Man...we need ZERO camp injuries.

I missed that post. If this is true, I wonder if it's his LEFT knee, which if I remember was the resaon he was taken out of the October Titans game. Any additional info out there?
