Default [CHRONIC] Texans to work out David Anderson Tuesday

http://www.chron.com/sports/texans/a...ay-2167405.php

David Anderson is one of the free agent receivers the Texans are going to work out on Tuesday.

With Kevin Walter nursing a badly bruised shoulder, the Texans are looking to sign a veteran. He played his first five seasons with the Texans. He was a salary cap casualty who signed with Denver.

Anderson was waived by the Broncos in their roster reduction to 53. He flew from Denver to Houston on Monday night and will work out at their Methodist Training Facility.

Coach Gary Kubiak said Walter will be reevaluated on Wednesday. He didn't rule Walter out of the Miami game.

The odds are that Walter will be sidelined. Jacoby Jones would replace him. Bryant Johnson would move up a spot, creating an opening for a fourth wideout.

Workout David Anderson? Whatever for?
Don't they know enough about him already?
Maybe they want to see if he had tied his tongue in knot so as not to interfere with his play?

Signing him will appeal to the Jacoby Haters.
The only reason they hate on Jacoby is because
he is here, and Anderson is not.

We all know that...


the goofy "string dance" marked the last time
he scored an NFL touchdown (THREE YEARS
AGO!)

If KW is going to miss time, I would rather get a fast guy to run a fly or post to stretch defenses than the DA 1 yard drag 2 yard gain.

We have Walter , Daniels , Casey , Dreessen , Graham , and maybe Anderson . That has to sting for us to look like the 58 Colts .

So your saying that prior to July 30th of this year (the date that Anderson was released) there were no Jacoby haters?

BS - people have been wanting to cut JJ long before Anderson was cut.

Perception would not seem to meet reality.

% of receptions for 1st downs:

Anderson - 62%, 10.9 ypr
Reggie Bush - 35%, 7.3 ypr
JJ - 65%, 12.8, ypr
Walter - 65%, 12.3 ypr
AJ - 65%, 13.6 ypr
Houshmanzadeh - 63%, 11.5 ypr
Bryant Johnson - 65%, 12.5 ypr

Only one significant outlier among these (picked Bush since we are about to play him and Anderson and Housh because they have been mentioned as connected to these tryouts).

I am not saying bring Anderson back because he has been here before. Just providing some perspective information. I hope they pick the person with the best chance to help if called upon. Familiarity is a factor but shouldn't be the only one.

General McLame mentions it was DA and a few other receivers in his chat today, but never mentions who the other ones are. But he is adamant that DA will be on this squad.

Good post.

I understand why folks are hard on JJ and expect him to perform better more consistently, but I never understood the DA dislike...

And I also agree that they should sign the best man for the job whomever that may be.
