    If you haven't read TC's new article "Are the Texans toast? KC Joyner talks cornerbacks", you should. It has TC's usual good coverage of the Texans but the part I like the best comes at the end when she gives her observation/insight into the Texans' OTAs:

    Sounds like he's taking Dunta's and Alex Gibbs place at the same time.

    Good stuff TC.

    Chris Doleman used to bark at the opposition back in the day. I like that.

    I was always a Dunta fan... Even after the holdout last off-season, I liked the idea of potentially franchising him again after the '09 season. But, after watching the '09 season, it became very clear that he simply isn't any good (I think he was before the injury- at times). So, I'm actually very excited about the secondary play this year. I think we have a good shot at much improved DB play with the group being brought in and the addition by subtraction of Dunta. I think a healthy Pollard is crucial, though.

    Thanks

    At TC Blog:

    Are the Texans toast? KC Joyner talks cornerbacks

    Yeah, it is hard to get much out of OTAs because they are trying things out and are just wearing shorts, but it was hard to not notice Pollard. Maybe I just caught him on a growlie day or something.

    At first I was, "did I just hear that?" And then he kept doing it. And he'd growl at what he was doing, and growl at what other players did.

    77th out of 100 is pretty poor for a franchise corner. Maybe it is a good thing that we let him walk.

    The PFF links are even uglier. But then again, I had some other numbers that suggested that more often than not he faced the #1 wide receiver. Let's see what happens to the other guy's numbers when they face #1s. It will be interesting to see if rookie gets targeted. Some NFL games you can pretty much predict where the ball is going to go based on where/who the corners are.

    I think that's great that pollard is bringing this kind of intensity at the ota's. Think about if we had him last year at the beginning of the season.
    I think jackson will definatly do better than DR did in 09.

    Hopefully having a whole training camp with the team helps Pollard out given how well he played barely knowing his teammates.

    Either that, or the heat will give him dead legs by the start of the season.

    Pollard played with passion and made plays
    hopefully he settles in as a Texan in the future but he has only played like 12 games as a Texan.

    Either way we still didn't address the FS position
    if Busing even gets one snap at FS somebody should be fired
    and we have the whole losing your #1 corner over $$
    is our team better? I don't see it.

    More question marks than last year
    IMHO

    Not if this last draft is supposed to make any kind of sense. Holliday, Dickerson, Graham, Sharpton, McMannis...those picks are gonna be hard to justify if Busing is still around.

    Did not want to start a new thread, but I had to post this quote for posterity.
