    OK. Now there's something to see.

    If I'm not mistaken, I saw them playing Braman at OLB in rotation with Mercilus and Barwin.

    By the way he's played this season I wouldn't have even known he's been active this entire time. Next man up.

    LOL.

    Funny. But it's kinda cruel to kick the guy when he's down.

    If you've ever pulled a groin, you know 3 to 4 weeks is a conservative estimate.
    And then of course since he can't run during that period, he will lose his conditioning. Maybe with a bye week he'll be ready to go in the playoffs which would be mid-January.

    Don't mean to do that. I like Brooks, he just hasn't brought his game this year. At the least i see Barwin making some contributions in other areas, where Brooks Reed just sort of fades into the dust on most of his plays. Those who have been asking for more Mercilus time are about to get it.

    Looks like drafting Merci was a great decision.

    I know you didn't mean to do it.


    I guess the silver lining here is the Mercilus draft.
    I hope he steps up big time.

    Braman may have the best edge speed of any of the olbs. I think the Texans lose something versus the run but may get a better pass rush with Mercilus and Braman.
