As a couple of people have pointed out, we shouldn't count out White. White has been with the team from a couple of years now and, as I recall, got some pretty good reps in the 2007 season. Before we brought Myers in, there was a lot of talk about him as a possibility to upgrade the center position.

Either way, this is a chance for someone to step up.

Don't want to get into an extended discussion on Dunta in a Chris Myers thread but, once again Dunta has NO leverage whatsoever. He either signs the one year Tag tender or continues to sit out, lost money, and lose a chance for other teams and this team to see he's worth the bloated contract he's demanding. Personally, I think he wants out of Houston.

Get well quick Chris!
yeah im not trying to ruin the Myers thread either but dont you think if we keep having injuries in the secondary they will be more inclined to promise a non franchise rather than sign a free agent? jmo

Any word on who actually was put into the #1 C spot? Also, any more details on what set Kubiak off? Who was he mad at; a player or a coach?
It'll be interesting to see who posts what in the various blogs this afternoon.

based on what? Shouldn't we see him play before we pigeonhole him as a guy 'not ready'?
No.

He's not ready. I think not therefore he isn't.

Something may be lot in the translation.

Got mad because he saw Richard Justice over there.

Did Justice really take delight in Kubiak getting angry at practice? Uggh.

Watching the kid play the last few days allows me to say he is not ready yet. That said I have seen progress from the young man already. He has been working as the 2nd team OC while White was worked at Guard. Now the injury to Pitts' has changed the reps and that may have do do with White playing guard

790 reported that when Myers went down he started screaming in pain before he fell. Was holding his ankle area.

They also said Kubiak was the most pissed off they've ever seen, saying the goalline plays were the sloppiest he's ever seen

Default Re: Myers Down

well I got the answer to one of my questions from John McClain...


Quote:
I've seen Gary Kubiak chew out players on the field. I've seen him jump on them off the field. He does it when he believes they deserve it.


I hadn't seen Kubiak go ballistic about his players until after today's morning practice. He was fuming becaue he considered it a terrible practice. He thought the players were sloppy and that center Chris Myers' injury in which a teammate rolled on his leg could be attributed to sloppy play.

After each practice, Kubiak gathers his players and coaches and other team personnel around him in the middle of the field. He let them have it. Then he did the same when he met with reporters. I imagine this means they'll have a spirited afternoon practice.
Light 'em up Kubes. Sloppy teams don't make the playoffs. ...and we should know.

Guess I'll have to wait until this evening to find out the other answer... ...who stepped in for Myers.
