Default Busing the best SS on the team?

John Busing has impressed me all preseason, and no time more than tonight. After seeing Barber again be out of position and overrun plays, and Harrison again out of position and looking lost, I was about ready to throw something at the TV. Then Busing comes in and viola - good safety play. Not only should the guy make the team, he needs to be the starter alongside Wilson on opening day. He might not be the second coming of Ronnie Lott, but he is a million times better than Barber, and Harrison who both need to be standing in line at the unemployment office.

Add to that his excellent ST play, and the guy was an awesome find by Rick Smith and company.

I like Busing a lot.
But will have to take a really long look at him!

Don't think we'll miss anything with Harrison gone.
Dude is weak compare to his size.

Barber... I don't know yet. I'd like to have a better player than him for sure.
But I think Barber still has a shot to develop (maybe).

Barber and Harrison together = Matt Stevens. Hell, Stevens was slower than my Grandmother. His tatoos could outrun him. But he was better then both of these guys put together. I've never seen two safety's more out of position and over running plays, taking bad angles and basically just having more major suckitude than Barber and Harrison. They need to get off the field and open a law firm because as football players they stink.

Thumbs down Re: Busing the best SS on the team?

I hope Busing makes the team. He deserves it with his play but I still dont think he is ready to be a starter. Does he ahve any practice squad eligability? If so I would imagine he thats where he will end up. We have got to find some safeties off the waiver wire better than what we currently have.

I don't know if he's the best SS on the team, but at least he wraps up when tackling. Our tackling technique is horrible.

He is a fourth year guy, no more PS for him. If he doesn't make it and Harrison does I will be pissed.

Maybe they are a reason that we play so well late in the season though, eh? If we could only figure out how to do both. (sigh)

Yeah, it's like "damned if you do, damned if you don't".......but this team needs to find a happy medium.

I am scared as hell about the start of this season though, because we are counting on ALOT of starters that didn't have much playing time this preseason (Pitts, Myers, Cushing, Reeves, Walters, and Dunta) and I think the Jets could be a scary opening opponent. Our first 3 of 4 games are at home, so if we start out slow again....our playoff chances are SCREWED (since we'll be playing the majority of the games left on the road). We need to win 3 of those 4 games.

Yeah, I know....I was just posting that for others to view,

Dick Justice is a hack and really needs to be let go from his job......he sucks at it. The moment he jumped on the franchise for running a "hard camp" was the moment I for surely knew he had absolutely no idea of what the hell he was talking about as far as the Houston Texans go.

That guy is CLUELESS and is a embarrassment to the paper he writes for. I've called him out on his "fact checking" a couple of times and he doesn't even respond. He's just butt hurt that they fired his buddy, so now he uses his position at the Chron to attack the team any chance he gets. (honestly, he'd be the happiest guy in Houston if this team went 1-15 next year) I've been stationed at many places across this country and I can honestly say.....anybody who pays for that paper is being robbed of their money (the quality is absolute crap compared to other papers), unless he's talking about baseball.....Justice shouldn't be writing anything for the Chronicle.

He won't make it.

Harrison will eek out the spot, which I think (like you guys do) that it's wrong.

A guy like Busing, who shows up in GAMES, is worth keeping.

But in the end, they'll cut Busing and say "It was a really hard decision."

I hope I'm wrong, though. But I think sometimes NFL Coaches make dumb moves when it comes to things like this. I really feel that they think a guy like Harrison is more talented and just hasn't blossomed yet. So they keep hanging onto a guy like Harrison, trying to not cut the guy and regret it down the road. Basic "over thinking," IMO.

Busing should easily make the team over Brandon Harrison, not just for his safety play, but for his special teams play as well. We've seen similar displays from Bulman, DelJuan, and our Colorado State embassy.

Unfortunately, you may be right. I think Busing is our best option at SS even though he may have some deficiencies, they are less than our other options. Problem is that in TexanLand players often get "appointed" to their spot on the team without earning it and generally there's only 2 ways they get moved out --- by injury or if they fumble the ball.

Busing was a linebacker at Miami of Ohio with good coverage skills. Cinncinnatti drafted him 3 years ago and converted him to safety. Their loss is our gain.
