I'm glad to see they brought Buster back. I half expected to see Brink brought back. Maybe they're not going to trade Rex.

Default Re: Texans sign eight to practice squad

I'm glad to see Arian Foster back in the fold, even if it's the practice squad. Has anyone seen a reason we kept Andre Hall as one of the RBs? I don't recall seeing him in preseason, but then I wasn't totally sober (hahaha) during the Tampa game. If anyone has an opinion on Hall I'd like to hear it, the other three RBs I already know.

Hall looked better than Foster in the Tampa game, and the fact that Foster had a difficult time getting on the field due to injury may have factored into the decision also.

Hall hit the ground running the second he signed with us a couple weeks ago. He had the look of a man who's experienced the bitterness of being cut. He wasn't going to let that happen. I dont believe him to be a longterm solution but i'm glad the Texans are giving him a shot. He had competition. His place is well earned.

You beat me to it!
during the post-halftime coachchat, Kubiak said that he told Foster that he "wanted to see more out of him" that he (kubiak) thought Foster left some yards out on the field. "We'll see how he responds", Kubiak said. Apparently, Foster's "response" was insufficient to beat out Hall for that last RB spot.

From my point of view, Hall ran with more authority than Foster did in the TB game. It was almost like the Rex vs. Dan comparison; just like Rex had the better game at QB, Hall had the better game at RB.

Hall started for Denver last year and had a couple of big games before he was injured.

He can return KO's, Hall is a Moats clone but he runs harder.

Hall has good hands and is a good receiver out of the backfield.

Hall is more familiar with the offense and is better at blitz pickup than Foster.

Default Re: Texans sign eight to practice squad

This is basically the Denver RB approach. You have a guy who works for a year or two but you always keep solid options nearby or on the practice squad. You run the guys into the ground and then get newer ones late in the next or via FA.

Default Re: Texans sign eight to practice squad

The roster and PS shape up pretty much as expected.

It makes more sense to keep Hall on the roster, he's already familiar with the NFL.
I swear that by the way Foster ran the ball in the PS, he was instructed to do so; ie. as not to show too much so we can slip him on the PS.

Let Brink go play somewhere in the "Minor League" better than have him on the PS. He has played in the WCO throughout college and he had spent enough time here to learn enough scheme already. Now that we have both Grossman and DanO, we don't need a project. He can always be called back.

I like Helms but he needs to bulk up and build some more strength.

Why? I think it's pretty apparent now that Brink has no future at the NFL level.....he's just a emergency camp arm now. (I hope I never have to see him in a Texans' camp again) We'll probably be using another late round draft pick on another project QB next year.

Nice. Actually, this is probably the first PS I've seen in recent memory that had players we could use. Seems like in years past they always had some washed up OT's, TE's and QB and none were worth putting in an actual game. At least Buster, Foster, and Jenkins seem to have some real skills.

I know most of these guys because they're repeats from last year or they have college name recognition (like Foster).

But who the heck is Mark Parson??
Anyone heard of this guy before? I don't remember seeing him in T/C...? Did we steal him from some other team?


Never mind; sounds like he's been here all thru camp, I just overlooked him....
Quote:
Parson (5-10, 188) signed an undrafted free agent contract with the Texans on June 5, 2009. He attended Ohio University, where he was a three-year starter. At his college pro day workout, he reportedly ran a 4.4-second 40-yard dash.

No one is going to give us anything for Rex. Anyway he is pretty much our #2 right now with the way Dan struggled.

I actually don't think we'll trade Grossman.

I think Kubiak in the past would've liked to keep 3 Qbs on the roster but couldn't get anyone decent to come in and be that third guy, unless you liked the idea of OD being the emergency third QB. Which probably terrified everyone considering the non existent running game.

To be honest this is a make or break year for Matt. If he misses a significant amount of time due to injury I hope we decide to cut the cord on the Matt Schaub experiment. It wouldn't be due to not liking the guy, his work ethic, or his body of work, problem is we still have a limited body of work. We all know Grossman's got a live arm and just needs to work between the ears. From what I've seen between the good Rex and bad Rex, he's capable of playing inside himself.

If we have to pull the plug on a Schaub I like our two options moving forward without investing a high draft pick.

I would hope then we draft a QB to develop say in the 4th round. Like Tony Pike from Cinci.
