Now that was just a tacky thing to say.

I have to admit I thought the same thing.

But I'm not so tacky as to actually post it.

This was back in Kubiak's first year when he thought he needed a strong-side DE for his conversion to the 4-3 and had no idea he was going to draft anybody #1 besides Reggie Bush.
As it turned out he drafted some guy out of NC State who was the best strong-side DE prospect coming out of college in years.

I know I won't be going up against 300+lb OL everyday so my chances of not being injured a skewed. I think I can handle the daily grinds of riding metro with blowing out a knee.

Can he physically hold up all year long at a new position full time position when he is a hybrid pass rusher type?

So Mario will be playing weak side DE? Personally, I'd rather have Mario playing strong side and everybody else playing weak side.

i wouldn't mind seeing a tandem personally. Weaver on running downs and Cochran on passing downs, seems simple enough and, god forbid, it could keep both of them healthy through the whole season... maybe its just too much to ask for.

On passing downs, the Texans will likely bring in Colvin at RDE, and move Mario to LDE.

Cochran moves inside alot on passing downs. I'd think we'd see alot of MW, OA, EC and RC along the Dline in passing situations. Kalu would be sprinkled in at times at both DE and DT.

I hope Thompson's ready to play pretty soon too. I'd like to see if they put his hand on the ground at time, or strictly at LB.

I dont care who they make the starter as long as he's the 2nd best DE on our roster. Until Cochran, Weaver, or whoever proves they can hold that spot down and be productive for an entire season they're just keeping Mario's full time position next year warm when he switches over after we draft or pick up a full time RDE in the offseason.

I've been a fan of Earl Cochran since he came to the Texans. I'm not sure he is a NFL quality starting DE, though and, if he's beating out Weaver, then that doesn't say a whole lot for our other DE position. I think Earl is a NFL quality backup unless he has progressed alot in this training camp/offseason and I hope he has.
