    Troy Nolan seems to be making the most of his time on the field. Nolan looks like he is going to be a good backup safety if not the starter. He was the only player last night that seemed to be fired up. With the exception of 1 missed tackle i saw him do, his game looks solid. Do not remember seeing Sharpton or Dickerson last night. Are they injured ? Jacoby looks to be getting better and better at the WR spot, good news as we could have 3 solid starting wideouts. Orlavsky(sp?) looks to be getting better but I am still not confident in him if Schaub goes down. Holliday is terrible to this point, i am not willing to use his finger as an excuse for the 2 mishandled kicks last night. Kareem jackson must have done a good job, i did not hear his name but twice last night and both of those pass attempts were incomplete.

    Yes, I would like to see Nolan get to work with the starters, just to see how he reacts. He's certainly a superior athlete to Eugene Wilson.

    Regarding Holliday, he's not ready. Still, I would like to see him on the practice squad and let his thumb heal in case the Texans need a returner during the season. I just think that at some point, Jacoby will need to concentrate full time at WR.

    Nolan has been ballin'. He and Pollard would really set the tone back there.

    if history is any guide, Wilson won't make it all year. I firmly believe that Nolan will see quality time during the season.
