    Geez, what's next for them?

    Megan Manfull, of the Houston Chronicle, reports the Texans decided to hold training camp, because they felt could improve that way.

    Well, it's probably the most honest evaluation we've gotten from them.

    I think the main beneficiary of the Texans not drafting Bush is V. Morency. Domanick is sure to get hurt and Morency will probably rush for 1,000 in his absence.

    I think Davis will hold up pretty well this season, after all we should have a passing game to take some load off. And I also think Kubiak will split carries between two RB's.

    And the Chronicle seems pretty bad, don't ever read it being here in the Austin area but at least I am not missing very much. I was fortunate enought to see Justice on Rome is Burning yesterday, bashing our team's every move, what a tool this guy is.

    I could easily see this as a real story, and that is sad.

    I lived in Austin for several years and got a subscription to the Chronicle just so I could read anything other than UT sports (and I went there!!!).

    The Austin American-Statesman has to be one of the worst papers I have ever read. All you get are articles on UT sports or the Cowboys. You had a greater chance of reading up on UT's swim team than you did of seeing anything on the Rangers, Mavs, Rockets or Astros. Heck when the Oilers were in Houston you had almost as much of a chance of reading up on the Saints as you did the Oilers. Pathetic coverage for a city with no teams.
    Heck I could read more on the Cowboys in the Houston paper than I could in the Statesman.

    All that said, I still think the Chronicle has gone down hill ever since the Post went under. The competition made both of them better. Wouldn't it be nice to have another paper here?

    I agree Ogre the statesman will have one little small article in the back page about the Texans every other week it seems if I am lucky. I pretty much only glance at it a couple times a week.
    But that is why I found this board, and why I frequent this board because you guys are the only Houston Texan fans I can find, we are few and far between around here. This is really the only place I can talk about the Texans in depth. There are a lot educated and well informed fans here that help me keep up with the team. :)

    They just started giving Txstate a 30 second segment on tv for football this last season. If we write enough emails complaining will anything change as far as the chronicle goes?

    Megan Manfull is the same person comparing Dom Davis to Earl Campbell last pre-season. I stopped reading her stuff at that point. She's a noob sportswriter.

    maybe someone with better research abilities can help me out, what exactly were DD's injuries?

    bruised thigh
    sore ribs
    sprained ankle
    fluid in the knee

    am i missing anything? is it just me or is that a fairly weak list to call someone "injury prone"? granted, they were probably severe enough for him to be justified sitting out a game, but i highly doubt any of the mentioned injuries would stop DD if we were in the midst of a playoff run. barring a broken bone or anything being torn, i'm calling 1500+ yards this season.

    Well, DD is supposedly still rehabing his knee - not sure what the diagnosis is.
