Default Gary Kubiak Presser

Was listening to it on 610, but I missed the first part.
Anybody caught it?

Sounds like James is day-to-day but will probably miss the next game.
Texans don't plan to bring in anybody new.

Tate is not practicing today (?) but should be back tomorrow.

Yeah, I heard all that, too.

It moves Connor Barwin to SAM & allows us to put a true pass-rusher at the WOLB.

Maybe it will also open the doors for a Cushing/Reed ILB for the future.

I think the presumption is that Mercilus becomes a fixture (as a natural fit) at WOLB and forces more competition at SOLB for Barwin and Reed.

Barwin is a much better fit a SOLB...

And Merci is a better fit for the WOLB position than Brooks or Barwin. I hope Braman gets some snaps at WOLB though because I want to see what he has as I haven't seen anything out of Merci that leads me to believe he's a long term solution for that position and the answer to our pass rush prayers...

I just hope teams don't start running draw plays towards the gaping hole left by Merci as he speed rushes the outside. The dude is cat quick but he doesn't set the edge very well. Hopefully he is getting coached up on that and a week with a 1's reps will help him. Along with being able to ride the pine early in the season. He hasn't hit that rookie wall, yet.

I must say, the lineup looks interesting.

Yeah, he's been caught a few times this year. I'm confident he'll get the hang of it as he'll get a lot more opportunities now, like you mentioned.

In fact, I think it would be good not to practice him for a few days, or just do some light stuff.

Also, just remember that Kubiak also said that Newton is day-to-day.
That and not bringing any new guy in probably means that his injury is not too bad???

I am probably in a fog but I think this forced change could make the team even stronger next season. Issue is can we keep winning this year? I say yes.

I won't flinch when we draft LB in round 1 again.

It'll be an annual event.

It'll be a much lower 1st round pick than we are used to. Hopefully though, we get used to it.

I'm in y'alls camp!

Look, at the end of the day, we're not gonna go 15-1 in the regular season. So if they can get JJo extra rest, I'm all for it.

As far as Newton goes, I think Harris did "okay".. Not great, but by the same token, not terrible.

Depending on one or two being there, I'll probably be hoping for a trade down for a high second and high 3rd round.

From what I've heard, he is obviously a beast on STs, but we haven't seen him in regular play because he has had a major problem assimilating the D LB playbook effectively enough for Wade. Despite this, at the right point, I would like to see what Braman can do when they "throw" him in there and let him rip.

Why hasn't Barwin been playing SLB before now? It makes sense that he would, but what's Wade's reason?

My guess would be that Reed can't play the WLB and Barwin could.
