    It's hard to tell what kind of talent we really have until the camps are over with and the team really starts practicing. It'll be a lot of fun to watch and see what happens.

    Being a student at the same high school Sloan Thomas graduated from, I am prejudice into wanting him to earn a spot as one of the receivers behind Johnson, Bradford, and Gafney.

    It'll be interesting to see how Jammal Lord does and where they use him, but I think he could end up being sent to the NFLE...but I think the important thing is just keeping the right guys here and putting them in the right spots.

    Jamal Lord would be a perfect player to put on a NFLE team next year, he could learn his new position by actually playing.

    I'm with you on this one Fiddy...NFLE is a great triple A league for developmental guys like Lord.

    I think that the DE/LBs we got in the draft might be a good fodder for the practice squad on the other hand. Hollings won't go since he is really the only backup that DD has. I suspect that Sloan Thomas will end up there as well...making the squad at WR is tough this year unless he has a really stand-out preseason.

    I doubt we ever see Hollings in NFL europe. That league is for marginal NFL talent.

    I was thinking maybe some of those later round draft picks that we are converting from DE to OLB.

    It wouldn't do a bit of good unless they run a 3-4.

    Didn't see how it happened but Chris Taylor WR, an allocated Texan went down with a knee injury but came back to contribute a TD while another Texan lit up the Admirals in the 2nd half.

    Clint Stoerner hit Chris Taylor from two yards to give the Admirals a 14-4 lead after earlier going down with a knee injury.

    The CenturionsÂ’ first drive of the second half was halted when Ryan Van Dyke was intercepted but when Amsterdam had to punt away possession, Houston Texans wide receiver Albert Johnson ran the ball back 73 yards for a touchdown to reduce AmsterdamÂ’s lead to 14-11.

    Rober Freeman is the one that returned the opening kickoff for a td in the first game.
    Chris Taylor had a nice game. He caught 4 passes for 61 yards and a td. From what I saw today, he has great hands. He didn't do anything on punt returns because Cologne had some pretty good coverage. Albert Johnson is a flier for the Cologne punt team, and they didn't give Taylor any room to run. As a WR for the Texans, I think Taylor could be a great posession reciever.

    Texans in NFL Europe
    By Carter Toole
    www.HoustonTexans.com

    Cornerback Rober' Freeman and wide receivers Albert Johnson and Chris Taylor won't be playing in the World Bowl. But they're making every last minute of their 2004 NFL Europe season count.

    Freeman scored on a 61-yard fumble return in Rhein's 20-14 overtime loss to Frankfurt, while Johnson returned a punt 73 yards for a touchdown in Cologne's loss to Amsterdam this weekend as NFL Europe wrapped up its penultimate week.

    Berlin and Frankfurt had already clinched both World Bowl XII spots the previous week.

    Freeman briefly gave the Fire a 14-7 lead when he picked up a fumble by Galaxy quarterback Kirk Farmer and scampered to the end zone for his second touchdown of the season. The other came on a kickoff return on the opening play of the season. Freeman finished with a season-high four tackles.

    Johnson, who added a five-yard reception, scored midway through the third quarter to cut the Admirals' lead to 14-11. Cologne eventually took a one-point lead in the fourth quarter, but another Texan took over from there. Kicker Todd Sievers booted two field goals (41, 40) in the final 5:18 to give Amsterdam a 23-18 win.

    Taylor continued his strong season for the Admirals, leading the team with four receptions for 61 yards, including a two-yard scoring grab. He leads Amsterdam through nine games with 37 catches for 486 yards (13.1 avg.) and four touchdowns.

    In other action, Berlin topped Scotland 27-19 as linebacker Kevin Deronde posted five tackles.

    The 2004 regular season concludes next weekend with Cologne at Scotland, Rhein at Amsterdam and a World Bowl "preview" when Frankfurt heads to Berlin.

    Nice. Albert Johnson will give Vontez Duff and JJ Moses a run for their money.

    I very seriously doubt if Albert Johnson even makes the team. Rober Freeman could possibly be the biggest challenge for JJ. Freeman is the starting corner for the Rhein Fire, and is also a return man. He returned the very 1st kickoff of the NFLE season for a TD before he got hurt, and then this weekend returned a fumble for 61 yards and a TD. Chris Taylor could also challenge JJ for a spot since he has proven in NFLE that he can be the go to receiver. Taylor also returs punts, although I have yet to see him get any blocking.
    I have watched two of the Centurions games, but I couldn't tell if Elliot Silvers was any good. The Centurions O-line caved almost every time in more than one spot, and it was almost impossible to see who was doing good and who wasn't. To be honest, it looked like the whole O-line was uniformly bad.
    From what I've seen so far, Freeman & Taylor are the only two that I think will be in the running for a roster spot. Of course it all comes down to how well they all perform in camp.
