    How sad. May she RIP at least she saw him reach his dream of becoming an NFL player.

    Wow, that really sucks. Going against Fitz would have been excellent practice

    This seriously sucks. From the reports during camp, he's going to need all of the experience he can get in the preseason (as do all rookies). Every rep is going to help him get ready for week 1. Losing any of that time is going to hurt our team as a whole.

    It does suck, and it sucks even worse for him, may she rest in peace. He can still get some good practice with saints, and dallas.

    It does stink but I don't think he's worried about football over the loss of his grandmother nor am I. My sorrow is with him right now in this time of greef. Let him go and do what he has to do and get past this. He'll be ready to play next week in N.O. GO TEXANS

    he will be missed but this gives Brice McCain some important reps, like to watch his progression. maybe he ends up starting season alongside Kareem?

    I think he is a bit smallish, but he played well at times last year. I doubt he'd be a starter in front of Quin and KJ, but he'll probably be our nickel. Molden or Reeves will be the dime.

    McCain has excellent cover skills. If he learns to be physical as well,
    the skies the limit for him.

    I have no doubt the Texans will take care of Kareem . They tend to understand these things which is the right thing to do .

    As Bum Phillips used to say , you treat your team like family because you'll fight for your friends but you'll kill for your family .

    So were Aaron Glenn and Antoine Winfield, both of whom have been to multiple pro-bowls.

    I feel sorry for the young man, but he'll find football to be the distraction he needs. I was his age when one of my grandmothers was murdered in Killeen eighteen years ago. I was very thankful to have basketball at that time, and a heckuva support group in my team and staff.
