    Not that this has anything to do with Schaub himself but the same story appeared on the A.P. newswire here and I looked on the right to see a picture of Schaub taking a snap from #65.

    Possible position change for Briesel?

    We need an NFL Play 60 campaign for the Texans. A "Texans, Please Play 60" campaign.

    Hah. The fact that he has to even say "we need to finish in the 4th quarter" is absurd. Whats next? A Kris Brown statement? "I need to start making my kicks."

    Here's yer sign.

    That is odd - they even identify him as a center.

    Wow - that's definitely Brisiel, all right. Wonder what that's about. I'm assuming they're just playing around will all the interior linemen right now (this early) and seeing maybe who sticks where or just getting some ideas. They also must really like Caldwell at RG.

    Nothing would make me happier than to know longer have Myers at center. At RG, fine. I am tired of him at center though.

    It's not just a matter of closing out the 4th strong, they need to learn how to step on their opponent's necks when they have them down earlier in games, too.

    from what McFat was saying on the radio, Briesel and Smith have been getting allot of snaps at Center. Dennison loves Smith at Center because he is 310 lbs and has been pursuing him for some time...

    Interesting indeed. I wonder if Briesel has a good enough head on his shoulders to be able to handle line calls and all the other responsibilities of a center. Funny how throughout the off season I don't think I've seen any posters here talk about moving Briesel to C (Not that I don't believe anybody has brought the idea up before. Just not talked about a lot).

    I wouldn't put a whole lot into it at this point. I think they are just looking at the versatility that the different guys bring to the table. We saw what injuries did to the line last year, and this ios the time to start your contingency planning. We have a pretty good group of guys that can play 2 or 3 positions, and that is a good thing.

    Briesel played center in NFL Europe with the Hamburg Sea Devils in 2007. Every OC that has been brought to this team has ended up at OG, except Myers and Flanagin.

    Weary, Todd Washington, Hodgdon, Chris White and Caldwell were all OCs that the team made into guards.

    McKinney was a true guard that they made a center.

    In other words, we need to be able to RUN the football when we have a lead in the 4th. Keep their offense (Jughead) off the dadgum field!

    I don't think there's that much to it, but at least the possibilities of using a C not named Meyers are there.

    So if Dennison comes in and replaces Meyers, does that make him a successful hire in some fans eyes?

    Oh.....oh.....thank you Lord!!

    Brisel at C is interesting. I think Caldwell put a pretty good stamp on RG and if you think Smith was signed to be a starter (I don't really but play along) the line goes Brown - Smith - Brisel - Caldwell - Winston. That sounds better to me for some reason, I think mostly because Myers/Pitts aren't in but also I think Caldwell is a good player and this hypothetical line contains guys who are all solidly 300-315 pounders. I don't believe either Studdard or Myers can hold that much weight and their strength didn't make up for the lack of size. The OL drafted in the 6th round gets to learn, Butler is a good backup and Maybe Studdard or White get the pink slip....
