By jacked I mean big and ripped.

Strength doesn't always correspond with looks though. I've seen some small non ripped guys that have been pretty strong.

This year feels so much different than last year because of the lockout. All we were hearing about this time last year was about negotiations. I think everyone is locked into the off-season workouts more than any year ever because of that missed time and how guys are developing. I know for a fact I've never EVER checked in to see how the first day of OTA's went.

He's a linebacker. They usually take numbers in the 50's. Linemen usually take numbers in the 90's. The UDFA linebacker Loiseau got the 90 because he's probably not making the team.

I don't think his likelihood to make the team had anything to do with him taking #90...

There are no other 50 numbers available...

Yeah. I wasn't clear with what I was trying to say.

Mercilus took 59 because it's the linebacker number and there were no others available and he had first choice.

Loiseau took 90 because he's a linebacker but as a UDFA, he had to take whatever was left.

There are probably going to be some guys wearing some numbers for other positions during TC.

Not a fan of Mercilus wearing #59. Just looks awkward.

But I get it: Numbers are numbers and there's a helluva' lot of linebackers in the 34 defense.

Whoever made the slideshow had a caption on Bullock/Graham/Weeks and put that Shayne Graham was a punter. LOL. Quality work at the Chronicle, as usual.

JJ Watt walking down those steps (in the slideshow) looks huge. He dwarfs everything, even stairs.

Unfortunately you better get used to it.

That's the way NFL works players fungible commidity. Hate to say it but being a fan of the team winning takes precedence over any fandom of players. As it should be. IMHO You very rarely get to have it both ways.

But I do understand where you are coming from.

That's an awesome picture but I disagree with the characters. JJ Watt is the prototypical Captain America, his celebration is even a salute. Cushing is The Hulk because he pretty much acts like him on the field. Brooks is Thor for obvious reasons. Barwin can be Iron Man due to his versatility and being able to throw out a bunch of pass rush moves.

Wow!!! Still spazzing? Mariwho??? Demecwho?

Ryans was a much bigger part of this team, and he will be sorely missed, but we have to move on from jersey numbers. There's only one Texan (or former Texan) who is a potential HOF'er right now. And that is iffy as hell.

Wade: “Yeah, Whit, I think it’s not too big for him[Mercilus], so that’s the first thing you look for in rookies. Sometimes they get overrun. He hasn’t had that problem. He rushed real well today, and that’s what we’re looking for him to do in the defense, and he had a good day rushing the passer.”

New blog post:

Gary Kubiak on the wide receiver competition

Wide open. Not having Schaub available makes it difficult to assess the young QBs because two of the QBs throwing are trying to figure it out themselves.

Cush does not look in football shape; He needs to have blood dripping!!

Interesting comments on Derek Newton & I hope LZ is correct. Would be nice for him to replace Butler in 2013.
