Agreed. I think Coach Joe keeps Grimes active on game day.

I think weŽll have to go with 3 HBs... Holliday seems to be getting a roster spot - and we probably should go 6 deep on WR (with AJs injury history and Posey probably not contributing much in the first year). Just no spot for a 4th HB. Grimes should get the spot as a young, promising, cheap player.

I have liked what Grimes has flashed, but totally have missed his clearly ourplaying Forsett and proven to be better. IMO, forsett starts the year as the third RB and Grimes on the practice squad.

Casey will be FB1 and TE3.

That gives them a lot of options at other positions - keep a 3rd QB , 4th RB or an extra body at ILB or DB ....

They used to play 4 TE sets at times. I think we'll go with OD, Graham, and Casey. And if we need a fourth, we'll probably move KW there.

Agree that Kubiak named Casey for FB1 [url="Friday Facebook Mailbag: June 8 Video Posted Fri, 8 Jun 2012 … status on Cushing spend ages needs second question. On the Texans looking ..... battles nobody is talking about the tight end position. Gary Graham and ..... g[B]one on record saying it James Casey would be second tight end[/B] and and to tight ends and so …"]but he's on record here naming him as TE2. (Grammar & typos courtesy of HT.com )


I guess that's all pretty fluid during camp and G. Graham has proven to be more than adequate at receiving but folks are concerned about his lack of blocking skills.

Right now the depth chart is:

TE Owen Daniels Garrett Graham Logan Brock Phillip Supernaw

OD, GG & Brock are pretty easy to figure out as 1, 2 & 3 but Phillip Supernaw is "Other". Guess we don't have a 4th string.

I love the name Supernaw.

Kind of reminds me of what my 105 lb. border collie mix does to his rawhide bone.

Would be even cooler if it was SuperHELLnaw..

Now THAT would be somethin'

Newton played some TE too last year in goalline packages so depending on the situation Brooks or Butler can fill in there.
