Default Mini Camp Highlight

Anyone see the mini camp highlights on the texans official website? Carrs arm and accuracy is looking good. Although mini camp is much, much different from a season game he's still lookin great.

Hollings' confidence is returning:

Quote:
Tony Hollings no longer thinks about his knee.
He's more concerned about getting his hands on the football.

Hollings said the biggest difference this season is he does not run with hesitation, worrying whether he is going to re-injure the knee. His burst around the corners has slowly returned and he doesn't feel discomfort after extensive workouts.

"I think my reaction time is getting down. I'm not worried about my knee. I think last year I was kind of timid and was thinking what I had to do. Now I just don't think about it."

Here's the link to the mini camp highlight reel Doug is referring to.

The Carr toss on the Bradford post was sweet.

Thanks Lucky for posting the link I wasn't sure on how to do that yet. That pass didn't look like it was ever going to come down (looked like a missile in flight). lol

This may not be the correct area for this, but is there any chance we can get the video files for Windows Media Player as well as Real Player. I don't want to deal with the spyware/adware that the free Real Player puts on my pc. I did it once, and ran Adaware, and it found all kinds of **** so I removed it. WMA doesn't have this problem. Why can't we be given a choice?

With minicamp concluded, this will probably be the last Chronicle article for a while:

Nice piece on Armstrong. Some Texan player mentioned him as a 'sleeper' last year due to him being domanant in practice. Hopefully he can translate that to the field this year.
Quote:
Armstrong, whom the Texans signed as an unheralded free-agent wide receiver out of the Canadian Football League in March 2003, continues to dazzle on the practice fields just as he did throughout last season when his sterling work during the week produced only scattered playing time on Sundays. But with a year in the system under his belt and a renewed sense of determination, that could all change in 2004.

"We're going to get our playmakers on the field," Texans receivers coach Kippy Brown said. "He's definitely a guy who has playmaking ability, but he's got to show that he can do it under pressure, in the clutch. If he does that, you want your playmakers on the field because he definitely has that type of ability."
Quote:
"I've never seen a player make as many plays as Derick did running scout team in all my years of coaching," said Brown, who has been coaching since 1978. "But cards are different. You have one route to run with no adjustments. When you have to adjust to different techniques and coverages, it makes a difference. That's what we've got to find out if he can handle. If he can handle that, then he should be able to do the same things he did as a rookie out here.

"The best thing he does is makes plays down the field in a crowd. He has a real knack for body control and timing. You throw it up to him, there may be a couple of players around him, but he has a knack for coming down with the ball. There are only a few players who have that, but he has that."

Interesting article in that you have the OC and the WR coach touting Armstrong's potential, but you have the head coach implying that he needs to get busy on special teams.
Quote:
Young receivers such as Sloan Thomas, Kendrick Starling and Albert Johnson have impressed at times during offseason workouts, and they could work themselves into contention. But because he is not a starter, Armstrong also will be competing with players from other positions hoping to use special teams as their ticket to a roster spot.

"We know Derick can catch the ball," Texans coach Dom Capers said. "The biggest thing is what phases and how much he can contribute on special teams. You can't play five or 10 plays of offense and no special teams and get activated."
If a couple of these young WRs shine on special teams, Palmer will have to do some convincing to Capers to keep Armstrong on the active roster.

That "Texan Player" was Domanick Davis in an NFL.com interview.

I hope we don't lose him, but there is a plethora of young talent at that position for the Texans. We haven't even covered the NFLE WR's.
