    Just looking at the game again. Noticed he was getting good penetration and was pretty much responsible for Mario's second sack. That's what we need from him.

    He's in GREAT shape, I'm hoping this is his year to REALLY take off.

    I missed the game but I was wondering if you had a rough estimate of how many plays he was in on? I feel like Kubiak should be rotating him in more often than the 12 snaps Mario got.

    As opposed to the last 2 yrs of saving Nigeria. It looks like he dedicated himself to his craft this off season.

    Funny how that happens in a contract year.

    The Texans have far too much of contract players for my taste.

    If it makes you feel better, Earl Mitchell barely missed a sack. We're not going to let Okoye put up a fight with us come contract time.

    I think Amobi has a few more years left on his rookie deal. He signed a six year contract in 2007 out of college.

    Thought this was a contract yr. I could be wrong.

    I hope OkOye either improves his dedication to his craft or becomes a situational player at best.

    I think Okoye has gotten the message, this might be his break out year, a solid rotation will only make him better,Mitchell is a lock, but they must find a spot for Sheppard.
