All that sounds great but we just have to see how mathis plays in real big time games and if he can catch, but im lookin forward to seeing this guy the more and more i read bout him the more i like him. hopefully he drops the rep of bad hands and starts makin defenses to be scared everytime they see number 13 and 80 on the feild.

go read the new story on the Texan's main page. Capers said that Mathis runs by all the DBs in practice and catches long balls all the time. I know its only practice, but it still shows alot of promise. Capers also said that Mathis has great hands (so far at least), but is very raw on running routes. That can be fixed b4 the start of the season. Im sure AJ will be helping him out 2. The kid shows alot of promise! Also, you should watch the video with TJ in it talking about practice. Sounds like he has a good work ethic.

mathis ran a 4.2..
wait till Buchanon gets here and those two match up.. he ran a 4.31 or a 4.34

.....
Just don't blink :woot


I think Gaffney is going to stay as the slot..I like him in that position esp. on 3rd downs.. He lets settles into spaces that AJ and whoever clears out for him

Would that be our 4 reciever set this year? It would be Bradford early in the year, but by November, I bet Mathis is there. If for no other reason than to get him the reps in prep for 06.

yea andd maybe even a 5 reciver set every now and then to really throw the defense off. whether u like bradford or not hes fast and havin him AJ AND mathis on the feild would just be plain scary not to mention having to figure out how to cover armstrong and Gaf. being a DB myself.....i would just walk off the feild cause thats just askin to be burnt those guys r fast and could stretch a defense.

i like the idea of a 4 wr set with DD as a roaming Hback/Halfback/WR. that would be sick. don't know if it would work though, but sounds cool.
