Also surprised to see no mention of Houston DT Deljuan Robinson. I'll be honest, I had never heard of him until a poster here (olig23) brought him up in the 'players to watch for in 2009' thread. I checked PFF and they have him ranked quite high.

Doing some further research, I found out he was a highly rated DT coming out of high school, but it was discovered he had a heart problem and had to undergo open heart surgery during his freshman year at college.
Did not know that. Del-Rob was definately a good find.

I've been reviewing the games from last year and I'm almost done with the 3rd quarter of the season. Robinson was one of my favorites last year but upon further review I'm less impressed. I still have 5 more games to review so perhaps he comes on strong at the end of the year.

Nice to see NFLUK.com getting a mention. Nick Halling is a great pundit btw and an absolute legend. I always find US punditry to be a little 'needy' whereas Halling is very honest about every team and spreads the love around, even if it isn't the 'in' thing to be saying.

For many years Nick Halling was calling AJ the NFL's 'best kept secret' and saying he was the best wideout in the league, long before it was fashionable to say that.

He did but that is because of playing time, he was in spot duty at best for most of the year.

That's a good article. I rarely read a whole article, I just skim through until something catches my interest. I actually read the whole thing. Thanks for the link.

Barrett, you'll become a fan again when you watch the Tennessee game... You'd better hurry though, I think game rewind expires on Tuesday!

This is about as accurate an article as I've read about the Texans. One of my favorite lines:

Quote:
Vontae Leach is one of the better guards wearing a fullback's number.
Boy, I hope the author is wrong about this:
Quote:
Defensive coordinator Richard Smith (Denver 93-96, so he only overlapped with Kubiak one year) was replaced as coordinator by 'senior defensive assistant' Frank Bush (Denver 95-03, so he overlapped with Kubiak in all those years, and assistant secondary coach Ray Rhodes (Denver 01-02) becomes the new senior defensive assistant. This suggests the changes won't be immense.
Pleeeeaaase, let the changes be immense!!!!

Another statement I agree with 100%, but from the looks of things we didn't change:
Quote:
The problem is just what it was in Denver. They like small, quick linebackers, but for those guys to be effective they need to be protected by the defensive tackles, and they need to have the pass-rush come from the line.
