David Carr get ready to test your arm. This is a quote on the Texas web site and I'm going to relate it to a past experience, because there may be a lot of truth in that statement. A long time ago Fresno State had a QB by the name of Jeff Tedford (Cal Coach). Fresno State had got the name WRU, because Tedford was throwing to two guys by the names of Henry Ellard and Stephen Page. That's an awesome lineup on both sides of the line. Henry Ellard was a High Hurdler in HS. Stephen was no slouch in the speed department either. They were taught by Jim Sweeny and company how to run very precise routes. What was funny was the schools we played would go into an umbrella defense and Stepen and Henry would go streaking by them. The apparent thought of the other team's defenders was no QB could throw the ball that far. But Tedford could and did. Stephen and Henry would make the catches look easy because of their speed. I have always felt that that team was one of the best ever to play small college football. Tedford has obviously done well at coaching over the years and Henry and Stepen had outstanding careers in the NFL setting various records at times. So could Mathis turn out to be one of those kinds of guys from a small school? I think so having watched some tape of him. You have to be better than average to get away from today's NFL defenders and he has two qualities that could make that possible. He has hands and speed. Jerry Rice had hands and ran excellent routes. Routes are said to be Mathis's one fault, but that is teachable. The other two are really not. The talent is there, but will our coaching staff get the best out of him? I continue to say the biggest Texans problem is its coaching staff. So you have a positive and a negative, but I really do like what I see in this young man. Only time will tell. I could certainly see him lining up on the opposite side of AJ and creating havic for the other team if he can off of the line of scrimmage.
