    Yeah I enjoyed it. Does anyone think we will use him on the goal line as a tackle eligible?? He was a TE and I remember Anthony Munoz of the Bengals caught a few TD's in his career.

    I expect the Texans will improve significantly in goal line situations. if Brown is outside the tackle (Salaam) in a double TE set he would be an eligible receiver, maybe a little play action off the left side, then dump it to him after he obliterates the safety or lb :bowser:

    can't wait for the season to begin :splits:

    This praise is usually reserved for a smaller guy...(such as pound for pound Roy Jones is the best boxer yada yada yada)

    I have never heard it used for someone who weighs in a over 300 lbs.

    Sweet.

    I like this pick. It is about time we used a high round for the o-line. And since it's one of Gibb's, I think we can expect to see good things from this guy.

    Yup, but by all accounts he is raw. I can already see the wailing and gnashing of teeth when he isn't starting day one. He is a long term pick, and I for one plan on being patient with him.

    You don't plant a seed, and wake up the next morning with a 10 ft corn plant, but until you at least take the step to plant the seed, you won't get anything at all. It's about time we sowed, so that later on we get to "reap" the benefits of the planting.

    Agreed. Prior to draft, I posted a worst case scenario that @#18 all players who should immediately start might be gone. Brown is among those LT that may not start but have potential to be long term players. We got what the man (Gibbs) wanted. Plus Slaton and a 6th round.

    yeah, I tend to agree about patience being a virtue in this case. Amobi Okoye is a 'project' on the D-line, but this also points to tremendous upside and growth potential.

    Brown has been given lots of props on NFLN and other national media sources, in that his athleticism and quickness will [eventually] be big factors in becoming a franchise LT. He is a bit smaller, but that is what Gibbs wants for his blocking schemes.

    If you want that seed to grow you'll have to cover it with fertilizer. Look at all the shit Mario got, and see what it made him into. Time to start heaping it on Brown. Although McShay & the rest seem to be doing a pretty good job of spreading the fertilizer thus far.:cool:

    I find that people rise or slump to the level of expectations placed upon them. If this rings a bell, it's because I was outspoken against any coddling of Amobi after the draft and before the season. Lace em up, get out there, and hammer.

    So, draftees: listen to the coaches, listen to the vets, earn your spot. No one is going to give you anything, round 1 or round 7. This organization expects great things from you, and the only way to meet those expectations is to show and grow, each and every damn day. Get'r done.

    If your Jack and they are magic beans they do.

    If he starts on opening day, he shall hence be known as Duane 'magic beans' Brown.

    Someone's gonna have to tell the coaching staff that...

    http://www.sportsradio610.com/The-Sp...-Raley/1616945


    Listen to Kubiak's comments about "easing Brown into the starting line-up"....

    Charles Spencer was a third rd. pick who played a lot of guard when he came out of college...

    Salaam was on the roster then, and he's two yrs. older now...

    If Charles Spencer was able to be the starter opening day, I'm especially expecting our new first rd. pick to do the same...

    From Kubiak's comments it sounds like it is Brown's job to lose...

    I like the pick, and could someone explain the 'undersized' thing to me?

    Brown is listed as 6' 4" 315 #'s correct?

    Salaam is listed 6' 7" 302 #'s.

    Winston (who some claim could have been a LT but has short arms) is listed 6' 5" 307 #'s

    So worst case scenario, is we have a faster more athletic slightly shorter version of our current starting LT.

    Best case scenario... he takes a year or two adds 10 pounds and...

    Walter Jones 6' 5" 325
    Matt Light 6' 4" 305
    Orlando Pace 6' 7" 325
    Joe Thomas 6' 6" 315

    I'm just having a really hard time seeing a down side here.

    (all the stats were gathered from nfl.com, so some might be slightly out of date)

    I'm currently downloading VT vs Virginia. If anyone is interested in a copy, let me know. I'll probably get more VT games from the past season once this one has finished.
