Default Receiver Signing?

I am not sure who is avaliable to sign. Do you think the Texans will sign anyone this week with AJ being day to day? Thanks.

Default Re: Receiver Signing?

I don't think they'll sign anybody. In a situation like this when you have a rookie QB, veteran receivers can be of big help. I'm looking for Derrick Mason and Bryant Johnson to play more. Jacoby Jones has shown himself to be unreliable, so guys like Mason, Johnson, and Walter have to step up. We also have OD and Dressen and they are going to be crucial for T.J. Yates' success.

i think Mason can be a big factor if the coaches actually put him in on more than one passing play a game. He still has some left in the tank and has pretty good speed, hands and size. Why sign him if your not going to use him ?

Maybe the jets let him go for more reasons than we believed or understood?

i dunno when i do see him in running routes, he has looked good and pretty quick, and on the (4) balls he has caught for us he has looked good. i think they just put to much faith into Walter and Jones. We run the ball more effectively when we spread the field, we need to continue to run 3/4 WR sets to keep the Defense honest.

I think they were all for first downs.

Default Re: Receiver Signing?

I would think Casey should get some looks. Seems so long ago but it was only early in the season, 3rd game against New Orleans he caught something like 5 catches for 126 yards & a TD is he close to 100% or are Texans saving him as a secret weapon?

I have said before Mason should be thrown to more often as a receiver.

I've been dying to see Mason be used more. But I thing with everything that's happening on the injury front this year, we get to really see how much of a system this offense really is.

A player like Mason who is a veteran and probably runs the second best routes on the team can't find playing time in comparison to a player like Jones who has been a part of this system for awhile.

And then you have T.J. Yates. His familiarity with the system back at his UNC days gives him an edge. Heck, that allowed him to pick up the offense quicker than any Texan QB, even Schaub. Any other team would have placed a free agent vet out there instead.

Default Re: Receiver Signing?

They were starting to get him involved in the game more and then the QB injuries started. Once they gain more confidence in TJ they will start to spread the field more and then he will be in the game more. Until then, they will go with the more conservative groupings of WR with more TEs and the more physical type WRs on the field.

I think they are going to keep Casey back blocking. He can pass block and I imagine he is better served keeping TJ healthy than sending him out as another receiver.

Please elaborate. You mean if they do not play him much, they can forfeit the pick they agreed to give in exchange for him?

Default Re: Receiver Signing?

look i know that my site brethren are to conservative to consider this signing but, I would consider bringing in T.O. for these reasons I am about to give for the remaining of the season. I know I might get roasted but my first reason is the guy is a physical beast and he will work his tail off that is the obvious, T.O. knows the west coast offense very well he played in the system with the 49ers & Eagles. The guy has been productive on every team where there was a decent QB he puts up the numbers and he can get open on any DB. He brings the size and speed similar to Andre Johnson so that would cause for teams not to double Andre in the playoffs and i know most people will say he is head case and all that and I get that but we have no other stable option that will cause teams to fear us with out Andre.

We might just see some trick plays called with Yates going out wide and OD playing quarterback.
