    Nice to hear we're doing well but I'm a little concerned about TJ. I hope he doesn't get lost.

    Payne and Smith will rotate at the LT. Weaver and Johnson will rotate at RT.

    I do feel your pain, but Capers and Fangio the Fantastic must be given credit for trying to fit these two round fellers into square holes in the first place.

    Yeah . . I noticed that he wasn't even accurate with 'nice job' crack. The point is . . Casserly, Capers, Fangio, and anyone else you want to point a finger at . . . are all gone now.

    So what is the point now . . besides :deadhorse

    I hope Babin is able to contribute and this article wasn't just eye wash. I've been concerned about moving college ends who were NFL tweeners back to end, but it may work out.

    There was no mention of Travis Johnson in this article, no indication that
    he would rotate with Weaver or anybody else. Now perhaps this was just
    an honest ommission by Chron writer Megan, or perhaps his name was not mentioned for another reason ?

    I think that all it is, an ommission. The article is about Babin, so I think there is no reason to think anything, one way or the other, about Johnson.

    y'all don't forget the Texans got Eric Winston along with TJ for that 1st pick in 05, if both become solid back-ups (worse case scenero) thats a pretty good return, if one or both become starters that would be :yahoo: time will tell.
     
  14. Nope, I'm riding this out until the villian is gone. I don't care what you say, Casserly had his hands all over this team and scapegoated Capers just way too much. Capers had his faults but Casserly is(was) the GM and didn't manage this team for #@#$!

    So take it, last I looked, Casserly is still in a Texans polo.

    I hope he takes back his resignation and McNair accepts.

    I would agree that TJ provides quality depth, if he doesn't start this season. By all accounts the DTs will be rotated much more frequently in game than we have probably ever seen before, also with less drop off in talent. Let's also not forget that Payne is 31 and suffered from injuries the past two seasons. Weaver and TJ are both young (25 and 24) and may prove to be our DTs of the future (This is not any sort of guarantee, just speculation until they both actually see extended playing time).

    Maybe he did keep some of the shirts to workout in or do yardwork in, but as far as I know Casserly is gone

    I am loving the D-line situation. Depth depth and more depth. Not to mention these guys really are going to push each other. I just dont think Jerry Deloach and Steve Martin were able to give our starting D line the type of compitition needed.

    Not only that but with good quality D line playing against our O line may be the O line will be more prepared for each game from week to week.

    Is there something behind that, that you are able to share?
