    He was decent in the game last week.

    If Howard is practicing all week at LG that means he'll play LT by the 3rd quarter because that's just how it works now.

    Said guys also beat the supposed to be penciled in starter at LT like he was their red headed step child! With that said, I’ll have the guy who didn’t get smacked around with ease have a go just to see what he looks like.

    Not altogether the case on the outside linebackers GB played. Kyler Fackrell, who recorded 10 sacks last year and also FYI is the guy Howard threw around like a sack of potatoes, their 1.12 pick from the draft Rashan Gary and Reggie Gilbert who played in all 16 games last year for them and recorded 1 of the two sacks on Webb. The biggest question mark on their side was Randy Ramsey but he still was good enough to get the other of their 2 sacks. Oh and Markus Jones, who was there and that's pretty much all anybody has to say about him.

    Tweet from @PatDStat: Seeing the preseason injuries piles up across the league is why OB wants all the joint practices he can’t get. Gets work in for all three phases of his team, controlled work with both teams doing their best to protect each other. #Texans

    Tweet from @PatDStat: OB mentioned in two days the #Texans put in about 80 snaps between two days of work during joint practices. That is equivalent to a game. Injuries will happen but they are not as frequent in those practice situation. The team is getting work in and OB is protecting the core.

    Heard a guy on the radio who brought up that in practices the qb isnt supposed to be hit. Most guys will either run past him or tag him on the way by. Some coaches dont want their qb touched at all.

    Anyways his point was that when the real games start if the qb hasn't played in any situations where they can get hit then they get a false sense of security and they dont develop the internal clock needed to avoid pressure/sacks in a real game.

    Not saying I agree just sharing. I do think pre season games can be a good ramping up tool. I think even a practice game is better preparation than a controlled scrimmage.

    Tough decisions being a head coach.

    I think it's losing the battle to win the war . You may start slow in the real season but you're healthy .

    Yeah, this is pretty much crap...as you know. I doubt that during the short course of a couple of controlled practices that any QB forgets all their years of actual games and obtain a false sense of security. Or even TC in general since QB’s can’t be touched then either. Don’t even know why someone would even want to make that claim. Even though they aren’t touched believe me they feel the pressure wave of a pass rush.

    There isn't a coach in this league that is going to allow his defense to hit his QB in practice. They don't in joint practices either this league is nothing without the QB's and you want your top paid players getting hurt in practice, because that is what is going to happen if you have them taking hits in practice.

    How I feel about Howard is that he's a small school guy with a lot to learn and get used to playing against men who are as big, fast, strong as he is.
    can he learn his craft? Yes, can Devlin teach him the ropes? doubtful. Another reach? Possible. I've been saying this since Howard was drafted.

    He looked better at LT than Davenport ever has.

    People who think Davenport can be an avg LT are kidding themselves. He's always sucked at RT. Hopefully Johnson has developed into a serviceable LT while on the PS.

    After seeing last night I would say 50/50.

    It appears over the last yr Johnson has corrected his biggest weakness, Strength.

    There is a reason AP isn't playing anywhere, he is just flat done. No one beats father time. Great for a long time for a RB, but now is the time to hang up the cleats.

    If so, doesn't that poke a hole in the Devlin narrative?

    Would you say about the same thing about another Texans rookie Olineman who is also from a small school: Max Scharping ?
