Saw this at the end of the OTA report....
Quote:
New blood: On Monday, the Texans signed strong safety John Busing, who spent four years with the Cincinnati Bengals, and guard Adrian Jones, a sixth-year pro.
anyone know anything about these latest acquisitions?
Camp fodder?

I saw a few guys in the video I don't remember being announced as signings. Are those two the only signings?

That's not really fair. In watching her interviews with players and reading her chats and articles, it's clear that she has a relatively advanced understanding of the game. If she weren't female, I doubt anyone would be raising these issues.

You can't pull the sexist card around here with Texans_Chick around.

Yea, I don't buy that.

To be honest, she isn't very good at the reports or the analysis IMO. She makes all of the videos awkward from the outset with her "Hi Texans Fanssss" bit in the beginning of every video. Her analysis is pretty "well duh" IMO.

I mean I like her because she is a Texans fan, but other than that I don't really see how she got that job.

I think there is some truth to women having generally less understanding of football than some men. It actually has nothing to do with sexism. I just think that people that played organized football have the potential to understand it better. And, not many girls play organized football- certainly not into high school (Helen Hunt not withstanding).

I don't think she doesn't understand it, she just doesn't bring anything new. It's repetition. I've never learned anything from a report of hers.

I dunno, not saying she is terrible at what she does, but she surely isn't good at it IMO.

I think that's probably the best description of Megan and probably symtomatic of most of the media coverage of the Texans locally. You have a few bright spots but for the most part they don't bring anything you don't know or couldn't have guessed by yourself.

What I'm saying is that she displays what I would consider to be an intermediate understanding of football. She's not a true analyst, but is a reporter with enough knowledge of the game to be competent in her reporting.

I'm not touting her as an example of greatness, but it's clear by the Texans' choice to hire her that they weren't targeting a high-level analyst who could really break down Xs & Os or get highly technical. She's just a reporter who happens to have sufficient knowledge of the game to do her job reasonably well. That's all.

Rings of things I would not want to be hearing at this point from what Kubes is saying:

-TJ being "out" with "issues." He needs to be out there with or without "issues" or he may just very well find himself off the team by the beginning of the season..............with more "issues."

-Antonio Smith with a hamstring.......potential high risk recurrent, chronic condition.

-Okoye with a quad with knee pains........one of the more rehab friendly injuries if isolated (and not a primary knee joint problem), but another loss of time in a "new system."

Lots of time to heal before TC, but why all these "issues" following a long rest period........certainly not from yesterday's OTA.

They all need this valuable time with their new coaches.

I could easily see us carrying 4 TE's this year and using 2-3 TE sets. Kubiak has always used 2 TE sets. And he likes 3 TE sets, too, but couldn't do that much (if at all) last year because Bruener was out almost all year.

I hope Travis Johnson gets healthy quick and is able to participate.

Cushing looks jacked. I hope he is learning and picking up pointers from Ryans.

Absolutely...
Quote:
(on LB Demeco Ryans saying he would help him and if he will try to lean on Ryans) “Oh, of course. He’s been generous enough to do that. It’s been a privilege already to play next to him. All-Pro linebacker, just an unbelievable talent, so I’m going to try to get everything I can from him. He was in the same situation and he’s just been doing a great job since day one.”

(on if it will help that Ryans was in the same situation of having to start right away) “Absolutely. He came in, he was a highly touted linebacker, and he’s just lived up to the expectations and more since being in this organization.”

(on if he talked to any of the other veterans today) “Oh, all of them. Especially the linebackers, just helping me out with every little thing, wanting me to get better. You could tell it’s a tight unit and everyone wants the best for each other.”

Default Re: Information from OTAs

I found this KubeKuote somewhat interesting...

Quote:
(on CB Fred Bennett’s role on the team) “Fred’s a starter right now. This league is about opportunity, and through Dunta’s situation, Fred’s a starting corner on this team right now. We’ll see how he does with it. He’s really taken to (defensive backs coach) David’s (Gibbs) attention and he’s worked very, very hard. So he’s had two good days to start off with here, so we’ll see.”
Does this mean that Fred is #2 until Robinson comes back (when he drops to #3) or does that mean he and Reeves are battling for the #2 spot?
