    The workout schedules are contained in this article. They are running two minicamps together with the weekend off as suspected to make it more like one bigger camp.

    Guess that confirms all of our thoughts about wand...I guess this really shows just how bad the old coaching regime really was. Most of us had our thoughts on wand at LT but for some unknown reason got into pendry's dog house and looks like he'll be manning down the position once again. Thank god we got Kubiak and co. Who is capers and pendry with now??? I hope we play them and when we do I hope wand really takes it personal.:redtowel:

    Perhaps Sherman is confirming what Mr. B. said about Wand. I think many of us had a tendency to believe Mr. B over Pendry. It is going to turn out that 90% of the problem was really the previous coaching staff. That would really be a shame, but I have a feeling it really is the case. Even the injuries are going to turn out to be a function of an over worked and exhausted group of players.

    I keep saying that you are going to be amazed at what you see this year and I stand by my predicitions. We will have a team which plays as a team and a group of coaches who know how to teach. It all adds up to a huge improvement. If you recall Mr. B was tuitoring Wand after practice. I wouldn't be surprised if Kubiak or Sherman gave Mr. B a call and asked him what he thought. Wand was a hard worker and Kubiak likes that kind of player. Effort and work ethic are big as far as Kubiak is concerned. It takes a lot to stay some place when you are not wanted and our being ridiculed. I hope he makes the previous coaching staff look like the bunch of bumbling ediots they were.

    The adddition of the center from GB is going to be huge in the development of the O-line. So many teams came up the middle against us and really destroyed any pocket that was there. Carr always had to move one way or another because of that. If you don't have an anchor at the center you can't have a pocket. Many of us complained for ever about Steve at that position and that one change alone, if the guy stays healthy, is going to result in a major, major difference in the O-line. Add in a coach who knows more than what he is doing and some new outstanding blood from the draft and you will wonder where the line came from.

    Kubiak is a big reviewer of tape and I suspect after he saw the tape of Wand holding his own against Fenney he would have to scratch his head about what the previous coaching staff was doing. I suspect the same was true of many other players and positions. Some one who knows what they are looking at is going to disect what was happening and marvel at the ineptitude of the previous staff. There are so many signs of this and that's why I was hoping we would start hearing and seeing some interviews with the Texans players and coaching staff about how all of this is now coming together. Perhaps with next weeks beginning of organized periods we will begin to officially hear about some of this.

    GOOOO TEEEXANS

    Remember, tomorrow starts OTA's. I guess we need to hound are favorite reporters to go out and report what is happening. I certainly hope we start hearing what is happening and how people are looking.

    Can fans go to these mini camps and OTAs ? Or is that just the 'regular' training camp later this summer?
