    Texans | Brown improving
    Wed, 5 Jul 2006 13:15:42 -0700

    Nick Schenck, of HoustonTexans.com, reports Houston Texans S C.C. Brown has been impressive during offseason practices and spent a good portion of his time on improving his pass coverage. "I feel a lot more comfortable," Brown said. "I think my passing game has picked up a lot. I'm able to recognize route combinations and things like that much better."

    Thats why I think that he will make the pro bowl in 2 years....He needs to work on his coverage ability, intercepting the ball, and just keep on knocking the snot out of the other team.

    We need a good, solid safety. Hopefully he steps into the starting position and does very strong for us this year. Hopefully Buchanon's tackling work is working out this well.

    This is where intangables and natural instinct come into play. Brown simply does not have the ability to cover and react, and he doesn't have the hips to turn and run. He also appears to have hands of stone and almost zero willingness to intercept the ball, rather waiting to "hit" (not fundamentally tackle) the reciever once possession has been retained. I like Brown, but he is not a starter in any other secondary. He is a back up SS, not a starting FS.

    Ill give him another year before I say that he is not starting material. He was productive last year for us he is definantely worth playing this season. He is young and was productive his first year; keep him on the roster and try and turn him into a solid starter.

    It's funny that nobody will say the same about Buchanon when he has 10x the talent.

    You are talking about a guy that was a rookie last year(Brown) and a guy in his 4th year in the league (PBuc). And yes Pbuc has tons of talent but has yet to put it all together on a consistant basis. Did you read the Brown article? Read it then tell me the guy is not more than a backup. And for the record as bad as PBuc was I am ready to see him suceed just lke the rest of our team.

    Actually i was a Buchanon fan until last year when i saw that he loves to wiff. Again i'll give him another year before deciding that he can't start.

    Funny...a lot of Texan's players are "improving" with the new coaching regime.

    Didn't see a link to the story so I figured I'd add one.
    I like CC and think he'll be an above average player for years to come. He might not have all the physical tools you'd like in a "prototypical" safety, but he DOES have heart and intelligence, and those are two of the best intangibles that can't be coached. I think CC andEarl could give some OC's, not to mention TE's and WR's, more than a few headaches in the future.

    maybe cause this will be the 6th year PB has stunk it up, one chance to C.C Brown is alot more of a sure thing instead of hoping PB will have football god magic dust sprinkled on him, and actually play half worth what we pay him.

    Does Buchannon have all these qualities? Guess he is a future HOF er.

    "He also appears to have hands of stone and almost zero willingness to intercept the ball, rather waiting to "hit" (not fundamentally tackle) the reciever once possession has been retained."

    Buchannon is a beast at tackling...really likes to hit..:rolleyes:
    The word 'ole' comes to mind...:chicken:

    Buchannon has soft hands. How many ints. did he have last year?

    Buchannon is hardly the barometer you should use in this instance.

    I am not anti-Buchannon. I hope he becomes a Texan pro-bowler.

    "I like Brown, but he is not a starter in any other secondary. He is a back up SS, not a starting FS."

    Best call Kubiak and tell him he is wasting his time with Brown then.

    I just don't think it's fair to judge Brown on his rookie season at a very challenging position...:penalty:

    Brown came from a small college, U Louisiana @ Lafayette. He is just now receiving the coaching he needs to become a pro football player.
