Just reported on 610.
Good. He looked like he was hungry...
Very happy about this, I've hoped the Calrk would be the starter since he signed.
Is that just for the next pre-season game or his for the rest of it?
I would say it depends on how he plays. If he keeps beating people out, he's the starter. If not, someone else is.
So what happened to Charlie Anderson? Can you please explain what they said because I was not listening to it.
I'm wondering the same thing ?
Do the Texans just want to give him the most reps so they can take a real good look-see, or is he in fact their #1 on the DC (if they were to publish a current DC, which they don't, or haven't so far) ?
Sounds like at least for now it is officially just for the next game. From today's report:
When they reported it, it sounded like it was Clark's job to lose from here on out. They quoted Kubiak as saying it was more of what Danny Clark had shown in workouts, training camp, the Bears game, etc. than anything Charlie Anderson did.
If it's just a single game thing for a guy who really wants to bust his butt to
play, I dunno why they don't let Babin start in Marios place in the desert Saturday ?
First, I really love Clark's attitude. I wish Mario had that same kind of fire, for that matter, the other 52.
Second, it's kind of confusing on several levels. Kubes has been raving about Charlie Anderson, and how he has been playing great, and deserved to start.
Then in this piece, he uses Clarks great ST play as reasoning to send him into the starters role at SLB? That makes no sense to me. If ST play equates to playing time or ability on O or D then why wasn't Bill Bates an all-pro safety?
If that were true, wouldn't Clark have started the preseason game? Obviously, it was something Anderson did (or didn't do) in the Bears game that pushed the coaches to demote him. I saw Anderson miss a tackle on Benson, other than that I didn't notice much. I'm sure they have their reasons.
I think Orr might looking to carpool with BVP to save money on a ride out of town.
Mr. Clark is about to be on 610...maybe...hell, they don't know so neither do I.
OK so he is.
Clark looked really good on special teams last weekend...
I didn't realize he was as athletic as he is...
Orr was never a starter. He's a depth guy, we just haven't had the talent to not start him. He would come in every preseason & rip it up for a little & then when the season started, i'd forget he was even on the field.
It is for that reason among others, i don't pay much attention to preseason playmakers. I remember around this time last year everyone was high on greg anderson & how they thought he should see some time. Fast forward & he is most likely to be on the practice squad AGAIN.
I don't think it's anything to get upset about. To me it's just saying Clark played well enough and earned a chance to play with the ones. It might just be proof that even if a player tears up the field in practice it doesn't always translate to gameday (sound familiar?). I don't know if Anderson did something wrong or not.
It's pre-season and I have no problem what so ever if Kubiak and co. are working to fit the peices in the correct spots.
Quarterback to free safety to Sam LB???
Sounds like he's well grounded too...
..except for when he was starter all of last yr (orr)
Clark has been on 610 this whole segment and I love this guy. He plays hard. He was a defensive captain on the Raiders. He played well with the Saints. He knocks heads. He sounds like a guy I'm glad we brought in. He just said he was a QB coming into college at 185. Now he is around 235. Good man!
