Default Re: Your opening day 53 man roster prediction.

Offense - 23
QB – Schaub, Yates, Keenum
RB – Foster, Tate, Forsett
FB – Casey, Norris
TE – Daniels, Graham
T – Brown, Butler, Newton
G – W.Smith, Caldwell, Brooks
C – Myers, Jones
WR – Johnson, Walter, Martin, Jean , Posey

Defense - 26
DE – Smith, Watt, Jamison, Crick
NT – Cody, Mitchell
OLB – Barwin, Reed, Mercilus, Braman, Nading
ILB – Cushing, James, Dobbins, Alexander
CB – Joseph, Jackson, McCain, Harris, McManis , Ball
S – Manning, Quin, Demps, Nolan, Keo

Special Teams - 4
LS – Weeks
K – Graham
P – Jones
PR/KR - Holliday


There is still some competition for roster spots at multiple positions.


Ive got them keeping 3 RB's for now tho I could see them keeping both Forsett and Grimes or either one of them. Its a toss up for now.


QB - Keenum and Beck for the #3

RB - Forsett and Grimes although both could make the final 53.

KR/PR - Trycycle still has to earn that roster spot , holding onto the ball and making good decisions with when to return or not going a long way twards that.

CB - The final spot between Ball and Carmichael is still up for grabs. I have Ball ahead at this point.

Have to wonder if they keep Keo as he has no PS elegibility .... this could affect other roster spots , especially the decision between 3 and 4 RB's or another TE tho Casey gives them a bit of flexability there. For now I have them keeping Keo.


Does Posey come down with a mysterious injury and land on IR .... Tough decision here because that would put him out of football for two years , thats a pretty big risk considering the 3rd round pick. Until he's IR'd , i have him on the final roster.


TE - Carrying only two for now with Casey as TE3 , this could change with a cut at CB , S or WR. Dont think Brock or Supernaw have shown enough , if there is a 3rd TE he'snot on the roster currently.

Default Re: Your opening day 53 man roster prediction.

One thing we've got to remember is that we're not restricted to the guys currently on the team. FB#2 might not be DSmith or Norris.

RSmith has worked some magic in the past finding guys that have been cut by other teams. When Kubiak was talking about FB, he could have his eye on someone they expect to get cut from another team.

Default Re: Your opening day 53 man roster prediction.

If they decide to go with just 8 O-linemen, I can see them keeping 4 RBs.

Alexander and Nading both still are on the bubbles in my mind.
It's quite possible that only one of them make the roster.

Nading has played at ILB also.

Yeah , Ive made this point multiple times , especially about the 3rd TE spot.

I only have 8 OL making my final 53 .... 4 RB's is a possibility but I think its more likely they use that roster spot on defense or for special teams standouts tho Grimes did show well on ST making several tackles thus far.


Nading is a really good ST player .... That and the ability to play inside or out may be the determining factor between him and Alexander.

Default Re: Your opening day 53 man roster prediction.

I think there are several players that have to play their way on/off the roster.

Keenum/Beck - I think Keenum could be moved to the practice squad with the Texans carrying only Schaub and Yates on the active roster. Watch for the waiver wire here, too, as a young vet that Kubiak likes could become available (like Leinart did in 2010).

Forsett/Grimes - Probably closer than I originally thought. The Texans could possibly keep both, if they go with 2 QBs.

Norris - I think Norris has to worry about who shows up on the waiver wire.

Brock - I think he makes the roster, unless the Texans find someone better on the waiver wire.

Gardner - He's lost some traction through preseason and needs a big game.

Shelley Smith - He needs an injury to one of the 5 interior linemen ahead of him on the depth chart.

Posey - The rookie either makes the roster or becomes victim to some type of injury. I think he makes it.

Fangupo - Needs a big game, and still could be cut if the Texans find someone better on the waiver wire.

Alexander - Another spot where the Texans look hard at the waiver wire.

Carmichael/Ball - One could make the team, or both could be cut. They need to shine to make it to Week 1.

Keo - Right now, he's a special teams player only. That Pleasant can be stashed on the practice squad hurts his chances.

Holliday - Unless he has a Chernobyl meltdown, Trindon is on the team.


I count as many as 6 positions the Texans could be looking at upgrades via the waiver wire. They won't bring in 6 players, but I think they will find 2 or 3 before opening day.

Did not know that, nor did my little feathered friend. Congrats on your knowledge of the rules
Therefor I'm thinking they do retain Fangupo for several games until Codys return
to the lineup, unless the Texans pick up someone from the waiver wire. The plain
truth is they have no reserve at NG for Mitch with "The Nose" being layed up.

It has just been agreed to (and it also moves the trade deadline from week 6 to week 8).

If this is unchanged from the original agreement approved by the owners, the IR change still wouldn't apply to anybody placed on IR during the preseason. I believe it has to be someone on the 53 man roster for the opening game.

The new rule will allow the Texans to use the roster exception on Sharpton through week eight. He would be able to join team practices in week six. If his rehab is going slowly as it appears, six weeks sounds about right.

You've just described the reserve PUP rule which has been in existence for several years now. Sharpton's already been placed on the reserve PUP. There will be no need to waste their one IR exception on someone who won't be taking up a roster spot for a minimum of 6 weeks anyway.

I think he was talking about the pup rule.

If I understand correctly it has been changed and extended.

Of course I heard that on the radio so that info could be wrong.

Im hearing that Gary may go with only two QB's .... If thats the case , they likely carry an extra OL or TE. If its a TE , I dont expect he is on the current roster.


No , I dont have a link ....

We usually keep 8 to 9 olineman I don't think we would keep 10 which is what the original number would have been if we didn't put him on the PS
