i think ragone could be a dark horse and shock a lot of people by his ability...let's not forget the only time ragone got any real playing time was against jacksonville's stround and henderson when we had weigert and washington out...not exactly a good line in front of him

no i'm saying we don't...i think weigert is constantly hurt so he can be effective...mckinney is way over matched when he is going against stroud and henderson and wand is too slow against freeney...simply put three of our starting o-lineman can't handle the vigors of the afc south division and need to be upgraded...mckinney or weigert can be upgraded soon in this draft during the second round i believe with any of those guards and centers out there...david baas, chris spencer, marcus johnson, elton brown, and ben wilkerson any of those guys would be a much welcome addition

NFLe camp cuts are in. Amsterdam cut Texans RB Adam Mathews, S Eli Ward, and Cologne cut LB Antonio Rodriguez.

Was Mathews the RB that looked good in preseason last year, but got injured before the season, or was that someone else?

I thought Ward was a promising prospect...Guess the Admirals didn't think the same...

Scrimmage Notes March 20 2005...The Finals scrimmages were held on Saturday with all the teams partaking in there final practices in Tampa Bay, as they ship out on Sunday Night and Monday morning. In the scrimmages Cologne looked very strong in the air as all three quarterbacks played strong games, but the however struggle on the ground with there leading rusher only gaining 19 yards albeit on only a few carries, Amsterdam once again faired well as they look like one of the strong teams coming into the 2005 season, and Houston Texans allocated Kicker Chris Snyder who has seen a lot of good reports in camp connected on both field goals he attempted from 35 and 51 yards. In the scrimmage between the Berlin Thunder and Rhein Fire once again Dave Ragone struggled going only 2 for 6 with 14 yards, however on the other hand once again Brett Engemann looked strong hitting all 5 of his passes for over 30 yards passing. The Fire passers also looked strong as the longest completion of the day came from there group. Hamburg looked strong all round in there scrimmage against Frankfurt all the Quarterbacks played well noticeably Ryan Dinwiddle and on only two rushing attempts Larry Croom had 20 yards, and not forgetting English National Receiver Scott McReady having 3 passes for 36 yards. Texans Quarterback B.J Symons also played in the game however i have not yet heard his statistics as soon as i do i will put them online. Akili Smith also looked strong for the Galaxy completing 7 passes. That is it for the teams in Tampa Bay as they now ship out to Europe where the weather is not quite as warm as in sunny Florida
Dont forget to keep checking Sideline's NFL Europe website, he's a strong Texans fan...and he is keeping track of all the Texans relocated over to there to play.

Gesser wasn't ever a top QB prospect coming out of college. When he came out of Washington State I recall him hoping to get picked up somewhere in Day 2 of the draft. I'm not sure if he was drafted or signed as an undrafted free agent by Tennesse (I'm thinking he was signed as an undrafted free agent), but he ended up with them either way. He doesn't have a lot of arm strength, and I think his size was yet another reason he wasn't highly thought of by NFL teams. He's a 3rd string type of QB at best.

Symons in the Hunt March 21 2005...The Frankfurt Galaxy starting Quarterbacks have yet to be announced meaning although he arrived late to camp after having to go and get a knee check up Houston Texans Quarterback B.J Symons is still in with a good chance of becoming the starting passer come April 2nd, his competition are Akili Smith and Kevin Eakin.



Narcisse Injured Reserve March 21 2005... Frankfurt Galaxy and Houston Texans Wide Receiver has been landed on the Frankfurt injured reserve list, unlike the NFL list it does not prevent them from coming back this season, it just means that he will most probably be heading to Alabama for Rehabilitation before returning to Europe.



Matthews a Sea Devil March 21 2005... As promised a few of the Houston Texans allocated players are back with NFL Europe teams, Adam Matthews was one of the first claimed of waivers as the Hamburg Sea Devils brought him in and have since allocated him to there Practice Squad. Sadly as yet Linebacker Antonio Rodriguez has not been claimed or re-allocated.

Default Dunn, Evans, and Scates starting...

little update straight from the source. I am working with the cologne centurions in the promotions department, but i just saw the first depth chart to but put out soon.

Anthony Dunn will be starting as the Sam Linebacker with David Morretti backing him up.

Brandon Evans better known around here as "Bubba" will be the starting LG.

and Scates is the only punter so he is the starter for better or for worse. although he has been bothered by an injury lately.

should be a good season. Go centurions. but i am not sure about the rest of the texans around the league.

Default Why?

Hey guys! I have a question that I have been meaning to ask you and this Ragone watch threads reminded me to ask you guys about Dave Ragone I read about hime in a magazine that had a section in there profiling him as a rookie in 2003 and talking to him about the draft and things like that. Well what confused me is why? Why would you guys,on what seemed to me as a "waste" of a draft pick when just a year earlier you guys drafted a very capable very talented David Carr at #1 who I think is just on the verge on having a big break out year although some of you might consider last year somewhat of a breakout year. But the point of this story is why with a great young guy like him around would you turn around the next year and draft another young gun? Just a question that's been naging me.

Several reasons (1) you need 2-3 QB's in this league, (2) Banks isn't getting any younger or more talented and (3) Ragone had been graded as highly as the 1st round so getting him in the 3rd was considered a clear value/BPA pick.

well I know you have to have 2 to 3 QB's but you already had two or three I would hope, and why wouldn't you just sign a FA?

When Tony Banks is your back up QB you are looking for a QB.

All of the NFLE teams' starting QBs have been named. Makes sense, considering the start of their season is this weekend! Ragone got some kind words in the article.

Behold, the return of Akili Smith. *yawn*
