    My problem in this article was the part where he said "Kubiak admitted that Brennan Williams, like most rookies, struggled in OTAs".

    Struggling like most rookies (at least to me) doesn't mean hurting your knee on the second day of rookie mini-camp, and missing everything from that point on. Doesn't give me warm fuzzies about the insight the author might be providing.

    Yep, it's hard to "struggle" when you aren't even on the field.

    Wow, overall a well written and informed piece you'd expect more from a local beat writer. MSR, Obi.... somebody get him for me.

    Got him. Good read. It's getting close and this kind of stuff starting to appear just gets the football "need" all stirred up.

    It's football time. I don't care what the calendar says.

    Speaking of which, has anyone seen any news on where we can get training camp passes? They ARE still gonna do that, right?

    Back to topic...
    I thought under "Biggest Concerns" or "Something to Prove" there might be a sentence or three about Matt Schaub taking his game to the next level. Those of us around here - mostly - seem to think that would be in order.

    I would've thought that it would've been done by now but looking at this page:

    http://www.houstontexans.com/tickets/camp-ticket-info.html

    it seems that something will happen soon?

    Keo vs a box of shipley donuts. I know he is decent on ST, but it's not like he is good enough there to make it solely on ST skills. And on D he is just bad. Maybe slightly better each year, but I have no earthly idea why he is anywhere close to being a guy that plays real snaps on Sunday's for a winning team. He's got to have something on Wade. :kitten:

    Was he good on special teams? That unit was such a joke last year. I don't remember anyone standing out besides Braman.

    No, iirc, he and Forsett were the one's involved (or not involved I should say) in the Karim KO return for TD. Dude ran straight up the middle while both Keo and Forsett were pushed to either side.

    That's one big bugaboo that sticks out to me. The camera even showed Kubiak pointing blame at someone after the return. Wish it would've shown who it was, but by watching the return you can tell it was on the two middlemen

    I honestly don't think there's going to be any battle. Yates is & will be the back up. Kubiak will say things like, "Keenum is going to challenge..." but that's just coach speak for, "We're giving Keenum a shot to make the roster. It's going to be him or McGee. Keep in mind, McGee went to my alma mater."

    Keo had a lot of high praises from coaches coming out of college because of what he did in the off-season leading up to the draft. He was actually one of the players that Deion Sanders was blown away with at the Combine and one of the players that the NFL Draft crew loved watching at the Senior Bowl. He was all over the place and was all around the ball.

    He obviously wasn't as advertised but he was only a 5th round pick. We didn't really invest much in him.
