Didn't see it posted, but... Leinart flying home for the bye week?
thats all fine in good lienart but there will be times were we are on the road a hostile crowd 4th qtr 1:32 mins left and ur going to have to drive us down the field throwing the ball .............. i hope i dont see that but if that does happen thats when we will know
The Texans are not practicing (like most teams) during the bye week. If I am not mistaken, all of the players are off until sunday or next Monday.
Fair... but I would have been happier to hear that he, andre, and arian moved into Kubes' house for the bye week to prep...
The new CBA requires teams to give players four consecutive days off during the bye week. Probably why he's flying home.
I don't think they are allowed to host practices during the BYE but I am not certain. I do know the new CBA rules allow teams to hold two padded practices after the BYE week. I hope the Kubiak will take advantage of this opportunity to get Leinart up to speed.
He p..p..p..p..promised? I hope that was the media's word and not his, because it is really hard to play QB with tears in your eyes.
League rules mandate that they must have four consecutive days off during the bye .... so they cant practice.
Edit: Didnt see your post Sam.
The Texans can't hold "official" or mandatory practices, it doesn't mean that Kubiak, Dennison, Leinart, AJ, OD, Walter, Jones, etc... can't get together off the Texans grounds and work out on their own. When practices do start Leinart needs to be coming in an hour early and staying an hour late every day. Fans would like to know that he's doing everything possible to get up to speed.
ESPN was talking about how Leinart's already been doing that since he's been here even with a healthy Schaub, especially in the film room
Matt Schaub made the comment on 610 yesterday that Matt L has been showing up with him at 6am everyday to study film, and go over things they need to know. They boy should be prepared, that's his job!! Time will tell if all this preparation will pay off. I believe it will!
I think "down time" is very important and Leinert gettin out of town and back home to SCal for a break for a few days is a positive move. I think the game in Jacksonville would have been a tough game even with Shaub still healthy and what's important is that Leinert be rested (physically and psycholicaly), and ready for a 6 game series plus hopefully one or more playoff games.
Mandatory 4 days off during the bye week per the NFL.
Aah, give 'em the 4 days off. Sometimes getting away for a short break is a good and healthy thing. Maybe Leinart will especially benefit from being home and hearing family and friends' words of encouragement, then getting back to work with a somewhat refreshed feel about things.
Who knows, perhaps it's more a problem for JAX than for us, they'll have to prepare for another QB with different tendencies. Most of their tape is 2 years old.
FYI Ben Tate is going home to see family and recharge also. Per his Facebook
Regardless of how much preparation he has been doing, he hasn't been out there against a live defense in a game situation in a long time. Here's to hoping they throw everything at him next week in practice to help him knock off the rust. Time to break out 1 of the 14 full practices allowed by the new CBA.
I never thought about it that way.
They have already had 11 padded practices as mandated by the league. 11 of those 14 practices must be before week 11 (one per week). It is only after the BYE that they are allowed to have two in one week but they are not required to have two. It is left to their discrection.
I thought it was 5 days? No?
