Default Safety: does busing get the start this week?

Anyone know if Busing is getting the start this week at safety for us? I've been watching with what time I do have and I like this guy for some reason. He just seems to be constantly improving in his skills.

He should start, even though it's alright by me if Pollard gets the nod.
Even Ferguson if he's healthy.

Heck, they can put Adibi back there for all I care!

Considering he's been most consistent at SS I hope they go ahead and give him the nod.

Not all world, but he sure is an improvement over Barber.

Pollard?! Is our safety situation so bad that a guy signed mid-week starts on Sunday??

My vote is for Wilson & Busing

I like Busing. He has shown more in the little time he has had than any other safety we have had. I think he has alot of potential. As long as he's not hurting us with big mistakes I would like to see him get more playing time. Hes young always around the ball and is a pretty good special teams player as well. Give him a chance to develop.

According to the Friday practice report, Kubes said Busing has earned a lot more playing time. He doesn't say that Busing will start.

At this point, it doesn't matter who starts. Until someone emerges as a solid standout, I think we'll continue to rotate guys at safety the same way we rotate the D-linemen. Right now Busing seems to have the "early lead".

The depth chart on houstontexans.com, which has been extremely accurate, has Busing starting at SS, Ferguson backing him up... Wilson starting at FS, with Barber backing him up. This adjustment was made this week. So, that's another indication that Busing will be getting a lot of playing time.

I tend to disagree getting the start shows that Busing has done nothing but make consistent progress since day 1 and it'll be "his" shot at becoming a true safety in the NFL. He should come out just all balls and hopefully fly around the field, I don't know if you have ever played football but when you beat someone out and you get the call it's a big boost.

At least it was for me, I like this kid for some reason.

I wasn't overly impressed by Busing ... he made a good pass deflection to prevent a TD (although he had position so it was more a bad decision by the QB to throw) but his run support that leaves me underwhelmed. He doesn't make any stops, and for a guy that plays as close to LOS as he does thats not good enough.

He had an INT in the Jets game as well. And no one is saying Busing is a good safety. We're just encouraged by the fact that a virtual nobody (in football terms) won a spot on the team through sheer hustle and is working his way up the ladder. He's better in pass coverage than Barber, so far as anyone can tell, and we need a safety who is good at something. Barber's not good in run support or pass pro. Wilson is a solid journeyman type, so he's a good complement.

Busing may or may not be the answer long-term, depending on his improvement, but he's better than anyone else we currently have (which is sad), and he's easy to root for.

I like that he makes plays on the ball and that he's better than Barber/Ferguson. Other than that I just see him as a band-aid until we get someone else in there. Maybe after a couple weeks we'll see Pollard in at SS on run downs and Busing on passing downs.

Yeah but his pass coverage is a plus. Pluses are rare in the secondary round these parts. Barber is not looking so hot, Ferguson might make tackles but that's just when they aren't throwing it past him. I'm sure his numbers will improve with time, seems like he's done nothing but progress from special teams to a discussion of whether or not to start him at SS so I'd be fine giving him time on the field.

He is a freaking Rookie who makes plays on the ball and is better in pass coverage, but he is just a band aid? I see him as a solid addition to the Texans and am glad you couch coaches are just that Couch Coaches.
