Default ESPN Blog Network: Texans Notes...June 28

Take it for what it's worth, but I thought I'd pass along something I found today: An ESPN feature (AFC South Blog Network)

link: Texans July 28th Report by Paul Kuharsky, espn.com

Quote:
• In a team period, a 9-on-7 period and a red-zone team period, I did my best to keep track of the touches of the four running backs who worked. Chris Brown was out with back issues.

Rookie Steve Slaton had 10, Ahman Green (the starter) and Chris Taylor had seven and Darius Walker had six. There seemed to be an effort to keep them all involved, a good mix of inside and outside stuff and a decent number of pass-catching chances. While some of Slaton's came at the end of each period with second- or third-teamers, I felt like they all got some chances with the ones on offense.

Two bad moments of note for Walker: On a play-action, check-down in a team period, he seemed very timid as he collected a short pass in the middle of the field. While he may have been expecting a lick, he lost a chance at additional yards as no one arrived immediately. On one bad play in 9-on-7, Walker got folded in half by safety C.C. Brown.

Chester Pitts told me Sunday the Texans are doing a better job of using the whole field in the run game, and I could see that is the case. It looks like everyone involved in the run game is making progress with the new zone-blocking scheme, though obviously the offensive line isn't cut-blocking teammates. I'll have another entry further addressing some of that soon.
A lot of stuff to read in that blog entry. I wonder if it matches the observations of our guys/gals here who are helping with camp coverage.

Play of the practice: linebacker Chaun Thompson made an excellent leaping grab in front of Daniels inside the 5-yard line near the boundary in red-zone work. A very pretty interception.
I think he means Zac Diles. From the picture below.

Sorry, I should've included the link. HT.com has a photo section I like to check out after each practice. BullPennPhotos has some good ones too.

I liked the small part about Molden. Keeping up with AJ is very impressive!

He must've attended the afternoon session of the practice as I saw chris Brown get a decent amount of reps in the morning. Also the hit Earl Cochrn delivered on Chs Brown sounded like it hurt.

Just do it. You won't regret it.

I really miss going to camp. I don't know what the driving distance is that keeps the trip from being worthwhile, but I'm sure its more than 150. Unfortunately Its also less than 800.

..
A rookie cb is blanketing our best wr who is attempting to catch an underthrown ball by our saviour qb.

Sounds promising....

... Kinda....I know, it's just three days into training camp.

Maybe I am missing something here. It sounds to me like from that snippet Molden broke it up instead of an underthrow.

Some of the posters here should think about being DE's. Already ready to rush a QB even if it means our own.

If Molden has the ability to keep up with Dre.....our secondary is going to be a-ok this year.

I don't real often talk my resentment about David Carr and his tenure as QB here. My biggest thing isn't the money or the wasted #1 pick. It that's his play will have skewed the perspective of Texan fans for the QB position past his time. Until Matt Schaub steps in this season he is THE reference point.

I can't say this means much because ESPN has lost all credibility with me after I read this article where they made like 25 errors in their fantasy mag or something. I wish I could find that link again.
