    A thread for all the pre-season hype that is forthcoming. I keep reading and watching videos of insiders who are just enamored with the Texans this year. While part of it makes me extremely nervous another part of me keeps saying "We finally made it!":texflag:

    All aboard the hype train!:splits::woot2::trophy:texanpride:texan:

    I've been stuck in Virginia, for a work related project, for the last few weeks. I wear my red Texans hat every day & a T-Shirt every now & then.

    Out here, the optimism for the Texans is really high. There is much respect for Schaub & many people here thinks we would have been in the Super Bowl had he been able to play.

    You are not implying that an NFL coach would IR someone without a legitimate injury are you? If you don't, I will.

    a couple things stood out to me in that video. the first was saying that the colts are building to try and beat the texans. after 10 years of the reverse, that just makes you feel good. i also liked the statement, "these guys let more talent go than several teams have". after so long having our releases leaving the nfl when they couldnt make it on the texans, that's another thing which makes it seem like we're there or at least close to it.

    I'm actually starting to think they won't IR Posey. I mean, by all accounts the thing that has held him back is being away from football, right? Hamming up an injury and sitting on the sideline all year isn't it, would he even be able to practice? I think even as a backup he's got a better shot at developing into something next year and the year after.

    Thats been my argument against him going to the IR .... keeping him away from football for a second consecutive year. Thats a big risk for such a young player and the investment the Texans have in him being a 3rd round pick.


    I said it in another thread - I expect Posey to be this years Brandon Harris. He'll be on the 53 but wont suit up on gamedays.

    Being on the ir in the NFL is not the same as being suspended in college.

    He can still be a part of what's going on mentally and he can still work on his conditioning and strength.

    Look at Lestar Jean.

    I doubt they'll ir him though. One injury and you might need him.

    In Posey's case, it was effectively exactly the same. During his suspension at Ohio State, Posey was reported to have attended practices and "helped out the younger receivers". I don't whether he sat in on meetings or not, but surely if he was at practices, he would have been allowed to sit in on meetings also.

    An in depth article from this morning's New York Times.
    LINK

    Some of the more interesting comments:
    There's much more there. This is definitely the best, most in-depth article I've seen this preseason regarding the Texans. Clearly there's some things in here folks will disagree with - but even the parts that you might disagree with are well thought out and thorougly explained.

    What about David Carr in 2006?

    What about John Beck and Rex Grossman with the Skins last year?

    No more VIP Suite so back to the recliner
    Different strokes I recon. That was before remotes and I can remember pulling muscles jumping up to change the channel as quickly as possible. Biggest waste of air time I've ever seen. JMO, of course.
