    “I love how much he wants it,” Chester Pitts said. “I’m so proud that he made the team. He shows you that hard work and dedication pays off.”

    Feel good story about how the long, hard effort by Tim Bulman is finally paying off in some game time for the young Texans DLineman from Boston.

    Read that this morning. Awesome way to start my morning. I wish we had a whole squad of 53 that cared that much and gave that kind of effort every day.

    For some reason, when I finished reading it, this song popped in my head -

    World turns black and white
    Pictures in an empty room
    Your love starts fallin down
    Better change your tune
    Reach for the golden ring
    Reach for the sky
    Baby just spread your wings
    Chorus:
    We'll get higher and higher straight up we'll climb
    We'll get higher and higher leave it all behind
    Run, run, run, away
    Like a train runnin off the track
    The truth gets left behind
    And falls between the cracks
    Standing on broken dreams
    But never losing sight
    Spread your wings
    Chorus
    So baby dry your eyes, save all the tears youve cried
    Ohh thats what dreams are made of
    Oh baby we belong in a world that must be strong
    Ohh thats what dreams are made of
    Solo
    Chorus
    Higher and higher who knows what well find
    And in the end on dreams we will depend
    Cause thats what love is made of

    Wow.

    I mean, this is one of those stories that we're used to seeing on other teams. We read about it, and we think "Man, I wish we could that lucky..."

    I'm definitely "buying" on this one.

    The guy is a crazed animal for the game, and it showed on the field vs. Dolphins. I saw #93 blazing around the edge, and I promise you that for a split second I thought it was Babin. When was the last time a defensive end, other than Mario, got around the edge and touched the QB?

    I think Bulman is going to nail down that spot fairly quickly.

    A great story and expect it to be recounted during a meaningful game in front of a national audience on 12/1.

    “I feel as a player I’ve changed every year that I’ve been in the league,” he said. “I came in as a 300-pound nose tackle. Then I went to a three technique and now I’m playing end. So now, physically I’m different. I’m lighter at about 275 and I feel really good. I feel I have just added a whole different game.”

    The above story (dated yesterday, 10/16), is from the Texans' main website.
    Its interesting to see the evolution of Bulman in the NFL from first a NT, then a 1-gapper DT, and now he's playing on the edge. Sounds like besides skill, Tim has a lot of versatility in his resume. Sorta a "poor mans" Mario ?
    I dunno, but that would seem to go towards his ability to stick on the
    game-day roster ?

    Bullman reminds me of another Arizona Cardinal castoff:

    Kyle VandenBosch.

    Oh, and he is running for President....President of the Texans.

    1560 am is doing a series of who should be voted as President of the Texans.

    Representing the defense is Tim Bulman.

    Representing the offense is David Anderson.

    It's a hard choice. Two try hard guys who have made the team because they work harder than others.

    I had a feeling about this guy. I saw him on one of the training camp specials on channel 13 and thought, man this guy might turn out to be something. Lets hope so. :jam:

    I don't know. The campaign has been pretty contentious.

    Bulman has been smacking Anderson for the lightning bolt hair.

    big heart. lots - o - effort. 4 point stance. slowest reaction time off the snap of any human i've ever seen in a football uniform. and yet, somehow he's making an impact. if you go back and look at it, he's getting a good push and creating nice problems for the OLine. imagine the possibilities if he could get off the snap a few minutes sooner!

    Bulman reminds me a lot of the Ravens' Jarrett Johnson. Just an absolute mad man on the field. Jarrett Johnson was a defensive tackle out of Alabama coming into the NFL, then moved to DE and eventually to OLB where he has started for Baltimore the past 2 seasons. The more snaps for Tim Bulman, the better. I absolutely can not stand Anthony Weaver.
