Nope on the computer.

When I'm posting on my phone, "Schaub" keeps wanting to be changed into "Sushi." "Kubiak" keeps wanting to be changed into "Karma."

It's hard to read the screen in the direct sunlight, so at some point, I am going to do one of these autocorrects.

BTW, camp camp is suppose to start end of July, and birds were telling me that training camp tickets are going to be offered via the website. Think that it will be around the second week of July.

So there you have it.

Autocorrect can certainly be a pain but I am surprised your phone doesn't learn. We call two of our kids Poot and Bear and my phone very quickly learned not just to correct them but put them up as suggestions.

So anyway TC, tell us what your thoughts of our jumbo 3rd round rookie Olineman are ? Oh I know he's real big, what I want to know is how does he move ? Does he appear to be athletic, move with a decent amount of foot speed instead of being slow and clumsy ?

Default Re: OTA thread

Did some digging that makes me concerned that the weight issue may be something that simply being severely chided by Kubiak may not be effective.......maybe not now or ever. Brooks as a freshman at Miami weighed 290 pounds. At the end of his senior year, he actually topped out at 353 pounds. He report to OTAs at 346. He has been told to get down to 330 pounds. He may or may not have a chance of getting there. But he may have closer to a chance in Hell of staying there, especially if, as Kubiak stated, "He's not taking it seriously."



Texans Rookie Brandon Brooks Cuts Some Weight, But Issue Could Remain

By TERRANCE HARRIS, SportsRadio 610

Quote:
HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – Everyone inside of the Texans brain trust seemed on board that rookie offensive guard Brandon Brooks’ weight wouldn’t be in issue when they drafted him in the third round of April’s NFL Draft.

But just a couple months into his career with the Texans, it appears Brooks’ weight may be an issue after all. It could be issue that may not ever go away.

Texans coach Gary Kubiak ripped into Brooks on Tuesday for reporting to minicamp on Tuesday overweight. Brooks reported a little lighter Wednesday, but clearly he was not happy to have to address the issue. He explained to reporters that his reporting 11 pounds heavier than expected was due to a weekend of overindulgence.

Brooks apparently got the message loud and clear from Kubiak how unacceptable that was.

“Well he weighed in lighter so I don’t know what he did last night,” Kubiak said. “He can’t play at the weight he was at yesterday, he can’t help the team. I’m trying to teach him a lesson now before we get started.”

Brooks, who was drafted at 350-plus pounds and reported for OTAs around 346, was an odd fit for the Texans zone blocking scheme from the outset. The scheme is better suited for smaller, quicker offensive linemen.

But the Texans believe he is quick enough with the weight that he can handle the athletic duties required of the offensive guards. And that was apparent during the 10 OTA practices when Brooks seemed to hold his own and make a favorable impression on his new coaches.

He got a glimpse of how quickly the view of him can change if he doesn’t keep his weight under control.

“He’s got a lot of ability. He just has to learn how important it is to be prepared every day, not just three days out of the week. You are accountable every day. Obviously he had a heck of a weekend.”

I'm guessing he's not married? Girlfriend?

I'd be hiring custom cooked/delivered meals and give him a looooooong time with a nutritionist -- who's pretty -- to learn about food. Sounding like he may have a "relationship" with food?

I think he is like a lot of young guys in more respect than just eating. He has not had to have discipline about much. If you are good enough, coaches and others will make allowances for you. Boom, you wake up in the NFL and discover the coach who gets on your butt about (the issue) is deadly serious. If he cannot lose 15 pounds byTC, he does not deserve a roster spot. I think he can get it under control but what do I know? I thought Dwight Jones would get his act together.

I react to stress by over-eating.

If I weigh 235, you know I'm having a tough go at it over the past month. If I weigh 215 or 220, life's being fairly pleasant during that time.

Brooks might be gorging when away from the facility, finding comfort in foods that pack on the pounds. BBQ, seafood, Asian, etc. Lots of choices in Houston.

He needs to hire a nutritionist who is like a Meals On Wheels, bringing him stuff and weighing him three times a day. Buying his groceries for him. Raiding his mattress and searching the couch cushions for evidence of candy wrappers. LOL.

Who is this kid? I see that he is the son of Keith Browner, and played LB/DE at Cal, but is he simply an UDFA? Did he even get any draft buzz?
