I'm not sure what more you want. ProFootballFocus had McCain ranked 25 out of 109 CBs in 2011 ..... J.Joe was ranked 13/109.

In coverage only, J.Joe was 9th & McCain 11th ( again out of 109.)

I'd take that production in 2012 and forward.

Those rankings (however they're derived) don't take into account whom the CBs are covering. McCain is lining up against slot receivers, Joseph usually the opposition's #1 WR.

Would also be cool with that group of receivers, but Vandermeer did say he still feels like Maehl is a lock to make the team. Which would probably leave Holliday as the odd man out, especially if the staff feels like a trio of Manning/Demps/Martin can handle the return duties.

Holliday will probably be stashed away and called up periodically like last year.

I think Maehl will probably make the team. He knows the routes now, has good hands, and can cut for separation better than anyone. Watch his 3 cone drill at the combine. Fastest time in combine history.

I'd have to see some of this ability on a NFL field before I pronounce a UDFA with a year on the practice squad and zero receptions a lock to make the team. From what I saw in training camp and preseason last year, Maehl looked really small. I don't see much he has to offer as a backup due to blocking and special teams limitations.

I like Manning not returning kicks, too big of an asset to risk on special teams. As for Holliday making the team to return kicks, I don't think it'll happen. I think Martin takes that spot and think that Holliday is practice squad at best and stands a good chance of being cut outright in training camp regardless of all the sunshine Kubiak's been pumping. I also think there's a veteran WR out there somewhere that makes the roster as the new #2 or #3 WR. I don't know who it is yet but I think we pick up someone once teams start making cuts in training camp.

Manning not taking the lion share of KR tells me Holliday or Maehl have a spot, I think Martin was drafted for punts and slot receiving and as far as Demps...I figure you may as well just take it at the 20 and skip the kick alltogether.

Now there's a blast from the past...

It's funny though because of his recent commercial on 610 that is now played all the time..

OUCH! He was asked to shed 18lbs and instead he came back a few days later packing extra. Hmmm, eating himself out of the league already?

Yep, Kubes is sounding pissed.

OTAs just ended 5 days ago. I doubt that Brooks has put on much weight, but he may not be satisfied with his weight loss up to this point. Especially considering we're having 90 plus degree temps out now. Not too hard to drop some lbs if you're committed to it.

Nah, it is the same old Kubiak.

Texans do not like non-fit players. They monitor weight carefully. Always have.

Players go in and out of the doghouse.

Twitter reports, though offering some immediacy do not convey feeling, nuance very well

They are going to stay on Brooks with the weight.

Sims-Walker caught a nice +20 yard catch from Keenum.

Moran Norris had a couple of nice catches.

They are fresh legs now. He wants to get a better sense of fitness levels to see if worth bringing into camp.

I'm not doubting that kubiak is still the same. Just seems like he's airing more negative things than he has in the past.
