    Texans | Joppru excited about new team attitude, optimistic
    Tue, 11 Jul 2006 19:36:42 -0700

    Vic Carucci, of NFL.com, reports Houston Texans TE Bennie Joppru has noticed a change in the attitude the new coaching regime has brought to the team, "Last year at this time, there were probably about 10 guys down in Houston (at the team's facility). On July 6, we had an optional run and 27 or 30 guys showed up for the run." Joppru will be looking to make an impact with the increased role of the tight ends in the offense and says fans will be very happy with the team's performance this season. :redtowel:

    I wonder who those 27-30 guys were? (and maybe who was not there would be more important)

    yeah, me, too.

    Hopefully BJ stays healthy and we get a chance to see him in action this year. I've always liked offenses with good TEs, because they are so versatile. It would be nice to see a few new wrinkles in our gameplans this year.

    Actually the 10 guys there the year before might be more important - they were there to be ready regardless of other issues.

    Does it matter that he was one of the ten last year. Obviously he had to be there to know how many were there. Or that's what it sounds like.

    After all these years, Bennie Joppru finally has a "take". Rack him!

    Maybe we will finally start getting our moneys worth for that 2nd round draft pick.

    I'm sure they have different people showing up each day since everything they are doing now is voluntary and some guys will work out on their own or take some kind of vacation during this time before training camp starts. It is definitely encouraging to hear such a drastic increase in the number of players coming to such things and that the attitude in general is much better, I think that is more noteworthy than who has or has not been coming to all the voluntary workouts.

    They must have been Michigan fans. Who else but them would want his autograph at this point?

    I think it is safe to say that David Carr was def one of them.

    Right, because his wife can help him read a cornerback better than Coach Kubiak. :)

    No, but maybe she could better than the previous staff. I don't know.
