With Codys back I could see a vet NT being signed after week 2. (It saves $$$$, remember Pollard) Keo gets cut if this happens.

With the PUP rules, you have to PUP them before training camp and then you have to PUP them again after the last preseason game. Then they sit out the first 6 weeks and have 3 weeks to come back.

So, he hasn't been placed on the regular season PUP list, yet. I expect him to be but we'll see later this week.

I don't know why you're so quick to get rid of Crick. He's played well the past couple of games. He's the second guy off the bench (after Jamison) so he's making the 53. They're even having him take some reps at NT.

Ya hopefully Sharpton is able to return for the season. I agree Crick will be a steal come on he was a projected first round pick at one time before he tore his pec. don't tell me you think ndamakhun suh was wrecking havoc because he is that good smh Crick had a part in that he is a keeper period

That's not special and proves that he still has trouble hanging on to the ball. What Holliday did Saturday night was the reason #12 got run out of town. Carry on with your fan club.

Personal preference. I do watch the league and understand what's going on, but I'm Bruce Matthews old school when it comes to LS. The comment wasn't made out of ignorance as you suggest. Would rather have the backup C/G (whose active on game day) doing it.

It is not a matter of what I or you want, but what the league does. the majority of the league has a dedicated LS who is considered a stating player. The year the Texans used Joel dressen as long snapper as soon as he became more than the 3rd/4th TE the team brought back the guy he replaced.

I want the job done near perfection since a snap that can't be handled is as much if not more a game changer than a muffed punt. Teams seem to think near perfection is better than old days when thye just found somebody to it 'pretty good." i know that Matthews was more than pretty good, but he was even a dinosaur as the last half of his career in terms of how the position was handled.

Point is the NFL as a near whole thinks LS is specialist position worth a roster spot on its own. Bringing up that the LS does nothing else is moot point.

Back in the day when the long-snapper wasn't a specialist position, punts, field goals, and extra points were much more of an adventure. Long-snapping is an undervalued position until you wind up with a team that doesn't have anyone that can do it. And when that happens, you're screwed.

I want a specialist in that role. I don't care who he is or if he does anything else on the team. He just can't make mistakes.

Our long snapper was saved by the holder big time on one of those field goals the other night....

The snap was pretty high and the holder did a hell of a job gathering it and gettign it down in time for the kick.

That was the worst snap I think I've seen from him and it wasn't even as bad as it could've been.

The fact that I noticed that snap is probably a testament to how good he's been.

Yeah , I saw that too. Thats the second bad snap he's had this preseason , the other was on a punt ... Jones handled it tho.

Same as you , the reason those two plays stick out to me is because we havent seen Weeks make those mistakes in the past.

If he's eating up a roster spot for no other reason than to snap on punts and FG/PAT's .... he's much like Trycycle , he cant be screwing up or he's a waste of that roster space.

BTW, i hope did not come of that I was making a case for Weeks specifically, because he has some question surrounding him since he has been with the team. When it is time to get his replacement, the Texans won't training shelley Smith to be that guy. They will be finding Weeks by another name off the waiver wire/streets somewhere.

Like I said, I don't care who that guy is, as long as he doesn't make mistakes.

Weeks is walking on the razor's edge, I think. He needs to play better if he's going to be in that spot.

Coach Joe has been gushing all over Donnie Jones's hands as a holder and a punter. I think we'd have had at least one bad snap if not for that. Maybe two.

You guys are smokin bad crack if u think Kubiak will waltz out Casey at FB on Sundays...in essence trying to kill two roster spots (TE & FB) with one guy.

There will be a designated FB on this 53 man roster, and it'll be Norris. Casey will be TE3 with ability to become a FB in certain packages or if Norris gets hurt in-game.

You guys are just trying to open up a roster spot (by leaving Norris out of the mix) so you've got the space to add whatever pet player you want to see make team.

Old GP sees right through the shenanigans. Norris will be FB1. Period.

Not at all , if you go back and look at every one of my roster predictions I have Norris making the roster in each of them.


Most teams wont carry two FB's .... the only reason the Texans are able to do so is because of Casey's versatility.
Casey will fill the third TE spot ... and unless they find a guy cut elsewhere the TE group will be only three deep with OD , Graham and Casey because Brock and Supernaw just havent shown they belong.

There have been two bad snaps , one on a punt in the SF game and another on a PAT against the Aints. Jones handled both well considering.

There will be another fb on the roster, but you don't think Casey is going to be the fb on Sundays?

I disagree with that.

Casey will be the starting fb.

He's not going to be reduced to the third TE behind Grahm and only play fb in certain packages.

That ain't happening.
