Default Antoine Caldwell starting center(Not, but possibly starting RG)?

From the Texans website:

(on who are the best three interior lineman) "(G Kasey) Studdard and (C Antoine) Caldwell didn't do anything not to lineup as a starter when we start, so that won't change. I think (G) Wade Smith is obviously going to push (C) Chris (Meyers) and both of them. I thought (G Mike) Brisiel, when he's healthy, he missed a little time in OTA's but when he's healthy, I think he plays as good as anybody so he's going to be a big part of the mix. Of course you've got(C) Chris White and you've got a young (G) Shelley (Smith). We're going to have to do a good job of mix and matching those guys so that it's very fair from a competitive standpoint. And we'll have to probably make a decision about week three of preseason of which way we're going to go so that they can settle down and work together."

I know alot of folks here are down on K Studdard but there have been many calls for AC to start at center in lieu of ragdoll. Sounds like Coack K is on the same page.

Nothing from your post suggests Caldwell will be moving to Center. Sounds like he will be our starting RG, Studdard will be our LG. Smith will battle Meyers for Center.

Typo. Caldwell looks to be the starting RG.

Lopez (I think) in recent article in Chronicle mentioned every O lineman but forgot or just left out the FA Wade Smith.

I'd be highly disappointed if our one "big" offseason addition to the team. Wade Smith, gets relegated to backup duty. Still not sure if Studdard has the athleticism you want in a LG, but hey that's Gary's call once again.

I honestly haven't seen an issue with his athleticism. I've always thought his problem was mental, strange decision making.

I have to agree. Hoping he will do better with more games under his belt.

I really hope Caldwell nails down one of the interior OL spots. I was disappointed that our 3rd round all american from the SEC couldn't win a starting job last season after the starting OGs went down early in the season.

I say Smith was signed to be a backup. He was a backup in New York and he only played last year on a bad Chiefs OL. His contract is not huge, definitely not front line money. I see him here one season only.

He is here to upgrade the backup center and guard spots, at least for now.

They aren't paying him $6.25 mil to be a one year backup. Maybe a 3-4 year backup but not one year.

If we wanted a one year backup at guard...why not just resign Pitts fora one year deal at a much more reasonable price?

Pretty much sums up my thoughts Cak. That's a pretty expensive deal for a guy who is going to be a backup. If he can't make it past Studdard or supplant Myers at C IMO it's a bad signing.

Seems a bit stiff to me and more suited for a power man scheme, but hey i mean at this point whatever makes the team better. I'm just not sure, but that doesn't mean a whole lot other than an opinion.

Just my opinion, but I think Pitts was our biggest problem on the OL. I don't believe he wanted to be a ZBS guard. To me, he wanted to do a lot of pulling & power 0 stuff. As one of our few leaders, I think Kubiak put up with it. But when his start streak was over, AJ & Schaub stepped up, and it appeared Kubiak was getting his guys as much experience as he could (switching Caldwell & White every game), I knew Pitts wasn't ever going to start here again.

Pitts having a huge injury (he still isn't cleared medically) isn't a ratification of your IMO incorrect opinion that he wasn't good. Pitts was the best G this team has ever known. If we could have two Pitts at G and McKinney back at C then playoffs would be a virtual certainty this year.
