    Went to the Texans Team luncheon yesterday. Did a write up for the NFL Fanhouse. I am putting this post here because there a few items in the fanblog post that are Texans football related:

    Link: Texans NFL Fanhouse

    Excerpt:

    There's a nice link over there to the newspaper journal he wrote while finishing up his time at Miami, through the draft, and into camp.:cool:

    Our very own in depth reporter with the scoop once again. No wonder Mclame and Justnuts are looking over the shoulder now.

    Great article again TC!!

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Texans_Chick again.

    "He was a 49er fan growing up." Even more of a reason to like this guy, IMHO!!

    I met Eric at All Access and he is a super guy! BTW: for all you gals out there who don't like the pink jerseys, Eric asked me where I bought the one my granddaughter had on cause he wanted to buy his girlfriend one!:)

    Great article, as usual, TC!! THANKS!!!

    " Turns out he has a contrarian streak. He was a 49er fan growing up. This is yet another reason to root for him. "
    ***********************************************
    Eric have a contrarian streak ? Awe, you're kidding. I would never have guessed that.
    Good article TC. I enjoyed it !

    Houston, again.
    Not bad, but doesn't seem to be coming along as fast as Spencer, but still doing well.

    a) I would say not nearly as fast as Spencer.

    b) But that's OK, because Spencer is far exceeding realistic expectations for a 3rd round tackle.

    Another great read. WITH the addition of a brand new word to the English language.

    "Milliondy" perfectly captures the temp in Houston. Get on the phone with Webster asap because this has to become official.

    I would disagree with you on where Eric is. I think he is every bit as good as Spencer is right now. H plays more consistant than Wiegert. Against Tampa Bay last night he registered at least three pancakes!(putting the opposong player on his back). He has better foot work than Spencer and is faster. Had they given Eric the opportunity at left tackle he would be starting.
    Spencer is 20 pounds heavier and uses it well but Eric is also a good 2 inches taller than Spencer. Also Eric brings more knowledge to the position having played there for three seasons.
    I think our best line up will be when Eric and Spencer are the book ends in our line
