    FOXSports.com reports Houston Texans rookie LB DeMeco Ryans is currently playing behind LB Morlon Greenwood at outside linebacker and LB Wali Rainer in the middle. He is making big strides at both positions, however, and will be pushing for the starting jobs in training camp. "We think he has a bright, bright future," defensive coordinator Richard Smith said. "And he's a young person that we feel can come in here and compete for a starting position on this team. But he's got to earn that spot. And that's what we're trying to get accomplished right now. We're trying to develop him into a starter. He brings youth, speed, and athletic ability to the position."

    He'll more than likely start the season, butI like the fact that they're at least trying to make him earn hi spot.

    I can already see that wild-eyed look in oppossing offenses this year when they think about crossing the middle. Gonna be hell to pay.

    One part stook out really far to me...

    Where the heck did Wali come from? Sam Cowart in the middle was nearly a lock (other than DeMeco) but I'm guessing since he's been down with injuries that Wali is really stepped to the plate. He could be one of our good underrated pick-ups over the offseason :thumbup

    Demeco will be starting no later that week 2. I am not sure if it will be at middle or outside.

    ----------


    Any player that can stone wall the GIRLS has got Texans potential:

    Last year, Wali started at Dallas (11/20) due to injuries at the linebacker position. Had 2 tackles at the 1-yard line that helped prevent a Cowboys touchdown. :superman:

    My best scouting source rates Wali Rainer somewhere between 78 and 80 out of a possible 99.

    I think it was updated during the last week of the year. I personally use the rosters that someone on Maddennation had that was in their EA locker, and I play with Mario and DeMeco and all them :thumbup

    Considering the fact that he could actually play any position on the 2nd level, I believe that makes it even easier for him to break into the starting lineup.. Wong was injuried, Cowart is up there in years and Strongside LB position is kinda up in the air right now..

    Like someone said I believe that he will be starting by the season but it is good to see that he is out ther competing and not just handed the job.. good job DC Richy Smith.. that's how things should go..

    First of all you have to have you're system with the game (PS2 or XBox or whatever else there is) set up for online play.

    Then go over to http://www.maddennation.com/forums/ and look in there Madden 06 online section. I'm sure there are a few threads titled something like Madden 06 updates available. Now these are created by regular people like you and me, but they are still good rosters to play with before Madden 07 comes out. Just send a friend request to whoever's screename is offering it (I can't remember who I got mine from) and once they accept it you can view there EA locker and get the franchise file that is in it. Then you can export the Texans and any other team you would like so you could play in Play Now mode or you can just continue in franchsie mode. Overall I've been pretty happy with mine, just all of the rookies are about 3 or 4 points higher than they should be, like Quadtrine Hill is a 83, but most of the ratings are pretty solid. There's some people in this thread who you might be able to get it:from: http://www.maddennation.com/forums/showthread.php?p=673058#post673058
    Good luck with that and if you need more help just PM me :thumbup

    With Kubiak at the helm every man on the team will earn his spot on the roster .... much less a starting position . Kubiak is NOT gonna just hand the guy the position if he hasnt earned it . :twocents:
