    Take it for what it's worth, but I thought I'd pass along something I found today: An ESPN feature (AFC South Blog Network)

    link: Texans July 28th Report by Paul Kuharsky, espn.com

    A lot of stuff to read in that blog entry. I wonder if it matches the observations of our guys/gals here who are helping with camp coverage.

    I'm thrilled when someone, anyone, notices a positive change in our running game! :)

    even though some of that is subjective it's nice to get the "reps" details. i wish i could rationalize driving down to houston for a practice.

    That is a really cool picture Hou Tex. You must have been pretty close to the sidelines.

    Someone tell Zach he has to stay in bounds to score

    Sorry, I should've included the link. HT.com has a photo section I like to check out after each practice. BullPennPhotos has some good ones too.

    I liked the small part about Molden. Keeping up with AJ is very impressive!

    He must've attended the afternoon session of the practice as I saw chris Brown get a decent amount of reps in the morning. Also the hit Earl Cochrn delivered on Chs Brown sounded like it hurt.

    Just do it. You won't regret it.

    I really miss going to camp. I don't know what the driving distance is that keeps the trip from being worthwhile, but I'm sure its more than 150. Unfortunately Its also less than 800. :(

    Later in a team period, what I thought was Schaub's deepest throw of the day didn't make it to Andre Johnson as rookie cornerback Antwaun Molden stayed with him up the left side and broke it up.



    :um:..
    A rookie cb is blanketing our best wr who is attempting to catch an underthrown ball by our saviour qb.:throwball:

    Sounds promising....:thumbup

    :jk:... Kinda....I know, it's just three days into training camp.

    Maybe I am missing something here. It sounds to me like from that snippet Molden broke it up instead of an underthrow.

    Some of the posters here should think about being DE's. Already ready to rush a QB even if it means our own.

    If Molden has the ability to keep up with Dre.....our secondary is going to be a-ok this year.

    I don't real often talk my resentment about David Carr and his tenure as QB here. My biggest thing isn't the money or the wasted #1 pick. It that's his play will have skewed the perspective of Texan fans for the QB position past his time. Until Matt Schaub steps in this season he is THE reference point.

    Not that it really matters, but the date is actually JULY 28th, not June. :cool:

    I can't say this means much because ESPN has lost all credibility with me after I read this article where they made like 25 errors in their fantasy mag or something. I wish I could find that link again.

    I wish I could rationalise taking a week off work, flying half way across the world, leaving my wife and kinds in the lurch, spending a small fortune, to go to a practice session, that would be sweet.
