    Cushing 56

    Barwin 98

    Caldwell 62

    I like James Casey as #86....thats a statement...and i don't think his number implies he'll be a blocking fullback haha

    actually the Texans would have hoped Schaub would have gone with a number other than #8.

    he wanted 8 because it was his number and he didn't care what number Scrub Boy wore.

    Using that principle, we probably burned every number from 60-79 as well... all in the first 4 years!


    please, no lists! I don't think I could take seeing an exhaustive list of bad olinemen that I had to suffer through in the "dark times".

    Hey, what about the UDFA? Don't they get a number? :)

    I'm not going to lie, i was panicked that Barwin or Casey might wear some silly number. So far, only Jacoby is "out of position" in that sense.

    I sure do love my Texans.

    the league numbering system almost forces this to happen since it really limits the options.

    A number in the 40's would be more indicative of that. He won't be a straight up TE, nor an H-back, we're going to find out just how creative our coaches are.

    Schaub was actually #7 when he was at UVA. Dogfighter already had #7 when the Falcons drafted Matt, so he took #8.

    I'm speculating here, but I think Schaub, if he cared at all about his jersey number, would have chosen #7 after the trade, but Chad Stanley was still on the team, so he simply used his Atlanta number. By the time Stanley was released, the team was already selling "Schaub 8" jerseys, so it was pretty much too late to change.
