    Signed up for the free seven day trial, listening now. So far, talking bout the fan interaction and the fact that this is a team that does everything right and have a chance to be a playoff team and also talking about our recent drafts.

    In the intro Gill Brandt took a little shot at the cowgirls for running camp inside while the Texans seem to be braving the heat. Maybe implied the girls were weak.

    big props to Walter as they said the Texans are only behind Arizona in 1-2 punch of the wide receiver corps.

    After a 7-day trial you will be hooked. I have a sirius boombox in my office and recievers in both cars. I listen to Sirius NFL radio (channel 124) all year long. It's worth it!

    I didn't realize that Dre, Shaub, and Slatton were only the 5th trio in the last 20 years to combine for that many yards. I think we are on our way up.

    I heard them mention yesterday that the Texans camp tour would be rebroadcast after the Bears camp is over. Yesterday they replayed the cowboys camp right after the patriots coverage. I think it will be around 7PM eastern. (I think the Bears only get 3hrs coverage as opposed to the 4 we got.)

    I have no idea what this means. The game that will be shown in the most markets at its time slot?

    And Schaub was injured last year, too. Imagine a full season... This year! :)

    Right. Jim Nance will be calling the game, the first time he's seen the Texans in person despite being a season ticket holder since their inception.

    Really? I didn't know that. Nance went to UH didn't he? or was it UT?

    Nantz (I misspelled his name earlier) was on the Cougar golf team with Fred Couples back in the '80s.

    here is my full recap:

    Texans are the 5th team in the last 20 years to have 3 players with a very high yardage (AJ, Schaub, Slaton)

    Steve Slaton:
    wants at least 20 touches/game
    is striving for 200+ more yards this year

    David Anderson:
    Shaved his head to model Schuab
    Him and AD are going to shave Cushings head tonight (accord to Anderson)
    Said one thing he would like to change is that houston is a "2nd Quarter Crowd" - c he notices no one is in their seats at kickoff
    On Schaub going golfling with Walter instead of him: He doesn't take me...He needs backup when he is hitting people with golf balls. So he cant take a short white guy."

    **Anderson's was the best interview by far

    Okoye:
    Took too much time off last year- he has been working since Feb

    DeMeco:
    "Not my job to deal with contracts" - focusing on playing

    Kubes:
    w/ Dunta not there younger CBs are stepping up
    Said Foster looked like a young Chris Brown
    Said he could c a big jump for Xavier this year

    R. Smith:
    Looks for Foster to take a big role this year
    Definetly considering taking 3 QBs into the season

    Cushing:
    Played college at 255-260lbs, slimmed down for 40 time

    they had a few other interview, but nothing new was stated
