Never thought I could root for anyone from Michigan either (devoted OSU fan here) .. but he's got my full support. Hope he shows us some of that fire this year.

For all that matters, Joppru has yet to show me anything. I won't be excited about his return, because quite frankly i don't know what to expect from him. He won't get any respect until he shows me something, not neccessarily an Antonio Gates type performance though. As of right now he's classified under bust.

Question Bennie Joppru's Impact?

Hey how big of an impact do you think Joppru will make IF he ends up being ready this season?I mean he was selected in second round so he must have some impressive skills somewhere.... Thoughts?

I think he will have about the same numbers as Miller had the first year. He will get most of the passes that Carr used to send to Davis when he felt pressure.

I'm sure there will be when they go to camp. Nothing to report right now.

What will everyone do when Bennie J finally gets on the field and makes a play, simple or miraculous?

Makes no difference to me. I'll throw a sigh of relief along with a "damn it's good to see you play!!" and cross my fingers hoping he'll last the entire season.

It's all about Joppru!!
No, it is not. It's not even mostly about Joppru. I'd go so far as to say it's not even a little bit about Joppru. Yes, it would no doubt be good to have a better TE than we do at present but from 1995 until 2002 Bruener started 111 games at TE for the Steelers and they weren't suffering from a lack of production at the TE position. They were doing just fine.

Were they throwing the ball to him ten times a game? Of course not! But he was getting the job done in their offense. Now maybe he's not the player he was then and maybe we'd rather have a TE that's more involved in the passing game but that's not the biggest thing on the Texans plate and increased production from the TE isn't going to do a damned thing for our offense if Carr looks at AJ then dumps to DD. You could have Gates on this team and it wouldn't matter until the line begins to pass protect consistently AND David Carr begins to trust them.

It's all about the offensive line. Even the part concerning the defense gets better or worse depending on how the line responds this year.

Yup....I agree wholeheartedly. Until the Texans solidify that line...we aren't going to be anything special on offense. Once that O-line protects Carr to where he can build some confidence and has time to actually execute the play with his guys....then we'll get rolling. Until we get this offensive line looking somewhat as a cohesive unit....we'll be yearning to see our offense shine.

True. Never really thought of it til you brought this up but if the TEs go out for a pass they wont be there to help block for the line.

Last time I looked, a good TE can help the line. I think he will have a major impact. I don't know about an AG type impact, but having a complete TE will help the offense in inumerable ways. Also, today's offenses involve the TE more than those of a decade ago.

Default Joppru Playing?

I live in So Cal, so I can't always hear what is going on as well as those of you in Houston. Is Joppru healthy and expected to play this year?

Didn't Heath Miller have the same kind of injury?

Yep, a TE is pretty much a lineman for all intents and purposes...except one that is pass-eligible. A dual threat TE will do wonders for this offense and will help in protections since teams have to account for a pass catching threat if he is not helping to block. This is year 4 and we are still waiting for our first legit TE. Joppru could impact this offense in a major way.
