    According to Texans Twitter the Texans have released Alex Brink (QB), Kevis Coley (LB) and Doug Dedrick (T)

    Guess they like what they see from Grossman so far...

    Damn, I kind of liked what I saw from Coley last preseason. The LBing Corps is too deep this year, so I understand the cut. Good luck to the guy.

    So the QBs are pretty much set.

    Please, please, please stay on the field, Matt Schaub.

    Third time is a charm right?

    We won't know until preseason just how Danny Boy and Sexy Rexy are in a Texans uni, but I think they are just as capable as Sage with the weapons we have. Unless of course injuries plague our O Line and/or our RBs.

    Boley was an interesting prospect but the LBs are too good of a group for him to make an impact. A 7th rd QB is the epitome of a "project." Until he got cut I havent heard much about Dedrick.

    By them cutting Brink I think it means they will carry 3 QB's. I can't imagine carrying 2 and none on the PS. Way too risky IMO.

    As for Coley, I'm sorry to see him go because I thought he could be developed into a good LBer, and I thought he had another year of PS eligibility.

    I hope cutting Brink means we are likely to carry 3 QBs going into the season. Much as i like OD I don't like him as our 3rd emergency QB, more like oh crap QB. Grossman doesn't need to overtly impress jsut prove that he's got a cooler head then Gray like last year and is willing to take the third string spot.

    I'm glad Kubiak went ahead and cut Coley early. Maybe he'll have a chance to catch on elsewhere. Just we are that deep now at LB....man that is so good to say.

    Hadn't heard much about Dedrick.

    There might be a lesson there, for people willing to look.

    I forget how stuff works... I thought you had to pretty much cut someone before you could put them on your PS? Or was that putting them through waivers?

    Yeah, they have to clear waivers before they can land on your PS.

    When they signed Grossman, they basically said brink wasn't getting the job done.

    You mean something along the lines of the houstontexans.com interview of Kubiak when he said "Lundy has that look in his eye...the sort of look you see in a superstar...I think he's going to be playing for a long, long time..."

    LOL. I will never forget that. Seared into my memory.

    Anyone of the 3 could still end up on our PS.

    Kubes talking players up is part of coaching. If a guy is busting his ass, you don't talk bad about him, but maybe it's not enough to cut it. Kubes talks bad, meaning anything other than good, when he thinks a player needs a little kick in the ass. I think he's pretty straight forward, but you can't say, "John, I think this guy will end up being cut to be honest, but I thank him for his effort."

    Other than liking him on a personal level, what was there to like on the field? He was completely abysmal during the 2 preseason games he actually saw the field. He's never really stood out at open practices either.

    Eh, maybe it's because he was a 7th rounder and an underdog?

    Kubiak will speak highly of darn near everyone.....to the media.

    I was never a fan of Brink. I am not glad he is gone, but I am not upset in the least.

    The lesson I was speaking more about was that the simple act donning of a Texans practice uniform does not make a player a diamond in the rough with a bright NFL future who could only be ferreted out by Smithiak.

    maybe Kubiak & Smith have figured they're onto something by picking up former NFL starting QB's off the scrap heap, coaching them up, then waiting for someone desperate enough to come along & offer a draft pick?

    winner of training camp battle gets back-up role, loser somewhere to a team unable to fill QB need, then Brink could wind up back on PS as insurance :)

    Brink was the worst pick by Kubiak ever.
