Default Re: Kasey Studdard to start

Good to see Kasey getting a start, but at the expense of all Texan fan's worried about Schaub having his blindside protected by those with minimal experience while up against a stiff defense.

Definitely watch RB blocking against the Cowboys, because Kubiak will and is probably going to have some basis on cuts and position on the depth chart.

Actually, U R WORNG!!!!

Kasey's been playing with the 2's on the left side. He's been backing up Pitts so this should be natural for him.

Good point. I also expect to see even more play-action stuff and possibly even more rushing to move the emphasis away from the pass-oriented offense we've been having lately.

Also, with the blocks that Slaton showed us all against the Saints, I think the blindside will be OK.

As things stand now, with or without a successful Slaton, I believe that the Texans would be wise to play to their indisputable strength, and seriously entertain the philosophy of passing to set up the run.

This is just a tad bit off the subject but did anyone notice how Chris Brown did on pass protection?

I did see the good enough block he gave for Matt to throw the TD to Leach.

I agree that that could work, but at the same time this may be our last pre-season chance to 'really' force the running game to see how it produces?

I guess we'll see, it'll be interesting regardless of what strategy they'll apply tomorrow

I agree on the point they need to TRY to make the run work this game, even if it fails horribly. THEY NEED THE PRACTICE!

It's beginning to look like last year; we pass, pass, pass, and pass and then run for a yard or two. Granted, we are a great passing team, but you still have to run if you want to make it to the playoffs.

I am OK with passing to set up the run to some degree.

However, it is imperative to be able to run the ball even when the other side is counting on it. When the Texans have the lead in the 2nd half (which I hope is the majority of the time) they NEED to be able to pound out some serious yards on the ground.

Good point. It is a reason for concern because Chester is our best OLineman
IMO and much more athletic than the slothfooted Studdard.
Mario is becoming very effective as a pass-rusher, but he doesn't have the lightning-quick moves of the Cowboys' Ware. I'm just hoping Studdard doesn't stumble over his own feet trying to protect Schaub if he has to
go one-on-one against Ware in a stunt-scenario ?

I think you are overrating Ware and underestimating Studdard. Like Vinny and others have stated, Studdard has looked very good thus far. Honestly, I've noticed Studdard get to the second level just as much if not more than the ones.

I might be wrong (wouldn't be the first), but Studdard can hold his own.

Default Re: Kasey Studdard to start

The Texans know what they have in their passing offense and I would expect them to protect the potential liability of a young left side with few long drops in the pocket while Schaub is in. Studdard does not appear to be a liability with the run and as we all know we have sorting out to do in our backfield. Therefore, I expect us to run often.

Lastly, this will be a good scout game for the Steelers defense, we do not want to show our best players orchestrating the best of our playbook in my opinion.

This will be a great test for Studdard and the rest of our line. The thing about Gibbs' system is that ALL the linemen have to be on the exact same page for it to work- it'll be interesting how the 5 of them mesh with a new guy in there (1st team).

An injury like this to Pitts can easily happen at any time, just sayin. We could be going into the season with our starting OL looking like this:
LT- late 1st rounder (Rookie)
LG- 6th round pick (1 year in nfl)
C- 6th round pick (3 years in nfl)
RG- undrafted free agent (2 years in nfl)
RG- 3rd round pick (2 years in nfl)

This is the epitome of a Gibbs offensive line. If we are successful at pass/run blocking against Dallas with our 1st team... I dare say Gibbs is on the fast track to already turning this team around.

I don't know about NEED. It would be great, yes; but, we sure gotta a lotta options for short passes. I would much rather have this problem than Dominick Davis and NO passing game--well, except to him anyway.

First, I'm disappointed that this move is happening because of an injury. I believe the second team is playing at a higher level, against the competition they face, than our first team. Which would lead me to believe something is going right on the second team, and it may be a person who needs to be moved up to the starting team.


But that's neither here nor there.

I here what you are saying, but our run game is so bad, we don't need to worry about holding back any secrets... JMO, we need to throw it all out there, and get something going.

I was referring to our passing game. The ZBS is about execution. If executed properly it is difficult to stop.
