    I know alot of you guys live in the Houston area, but many of us don't. We have zero access to Houston TV, and unless the radio stations are carried on the web, we don't hear that. What I'd like to see, is those who possess the technical savvy the gathering of information for those of us outside the Houston market. There are programs (i.e. Camtasia) that can screen cap video and pictures. I'd be willing to host this material if enough are interested.

    Other than this MB the Texans website is probably the best. They're doing a fine job so far this year. Articles containing comments from players including video.

    I heard on 610 a few things:

    1) Schaub and Kubiak agreed the offense has looked subpar so far. He called them ineffective I think
    2) Kubiak has said the defense looks great, making big plays
    3) Jerome Mathis looks great, has his speed and confidence back, and broke away from some corners to get good separation and bring some balls in
    4) Charlie Anderson looks to be the starter for SAM going into TC. Kubiak is giving him a lot of reps with the first team

    Obviously it's way to early to hit the panic button or freak out, but I do appreciate the honesty of their statement.

    The fact that there are standards and they recognize it speaks volumes, because it turns out that it's not all about having fun after all.

    I would tend to think the D will be ahead of the O at this point, so I'm not too worried yet. Afterall, it's easier to destroy something than build something right?:d:

    There isn't any Texan news up here (for a reason I guess) but I find all news I need on houstontexans.com or here so I don't need any more but would happy to hear and see more.

    I was a Charlie Anderson fan last year and thought he should've gotten more PT. I think he will be a pleasant surprise for us.

    I appreciate all the responses, but I guess I need to clarify what I meant. I'm able to get all the stuff from the Houston Texans website, and here on these forums, and I find all of it extremely interesting and valuable as a fan. What I miss is the local Houston coverage (yes I know the local media sucks in their coverage there, but try San Antonio for a week, and you'll know how WE feel). We get zero coverage of the Texans here, so what I'm looking for is someone to record the local news channels. Any specials they may have prior and into the season, and digitize those for web streaming.

    Yeah, we probably won't be seeing many games here, but I have that part covered :) Where there's a will, you'll usually find a bill :)

    I heard through the grapevine that some of the defensive coaches have higher expectations for him this year. I think he's worked hard since he's been here, and I hope it all comes together for him. He's earned some success.

    I didn't personally attend the TC this morning, but just listened to the podcast report from the Chrons Lance Z. who had some interesting comments.
    In talking about the OLine in some one-on-ones with DLineman, he basically said they did not impress and in particular Eric Winston looked to struggle the worst. Not good, but we're just getting started here.
    Then he mentioned a name I'm not at all familiar with - Tim Bulman, an undrafted FA from Boston college who came into the league in 2005. He said on the individual drills, Bulman in particular gave Winston fits and played well in overall and predicted he might get a shot at making the DLine rotation.
    Z also said Mario was looking pretty fit, and that new DLine coach Jethro would be a big asset to Mario's development.

    Seems we have a split decision - who is the third judge?

    My impressions from this morning's practice...got there about 15 min. after start. ....and before someone else calls a chicken little, I DO realize it's only day 2 of TC.

    1. Chad Stanley had best step it up or Matt Turk will be our starter. There was NO COMPARISON between the ball height (in really heavy air) achieved. Turk was absolutely booming the ball & getting better hang-time kick after kick.

    2. Schaub seems to have a tendency to throw 'downhill'. On his short to mid routes, almost all were being caugh below the #'s. I could be mistaken, but that's what it looked like Kubiak was 'counseling' him on at one point.

    3. Babin got absolutely BLOWN off the LoS more than once by 2nd & 3rd stringers, I couldn't tell if it was just technique, strength or what.

    4. Travis Johnson is still marching to the beat of a completely different band. You look up & see 50-60 guys all in shorts & there's one lone black sheep in sweatpants...guess who? The entire defensive unit breaks and heads off to the left. One lone guy heads off to the right, mixing it up with the Offensive groups awaiting their rotation...guess who again? He looks like he's there to go through the motions.
