    Really, did none of you see this coming the minute he was picked out of SC?

    These two CBs could really make a big difference for us, especially if our D-line can consistently apply some pressure to the pocket. Coverage is only going to be as good as the weakest player, and the longer they have to cover, the more likely that it will break down.

    Is Bennett going for the 2nd slot against Faggins? Or is Petey penciled in until he fails to prove himself?

    I seen a quote by Kubiak that said he was going for the nickel spot, insinuating that Petey has the CB2 locked unless he blows it. Personally I think Petey is a darn good nickel but not CB2 material, but I guess we have to wait and see. Either way, he will push Petey to play better, and the cream will rise to the top.

    Kubiak said that if Bennet continues to improve he could challenge Jamar Fletcher for the nickel spot.

    Do you have a link? If you are drawing that conclusion from this article, you should notice that it is the writer's speculation, not a quote from Kubiak.

    It was in the Houston Chronicle today, but I do not know how to link from the paper and too lazy to look for it on internet.

    You're right...my bad...

    But in the end, it's really not relevant whether Kubiak said it or the writer...

    The point is that as of right now he's the fourth or fifth corner...

    No one knows how he'll play in pre-season AKA game situations...not even Kubiak..
