    What player(s) are you pulling for tonight in hopes they make the team?

    I'm going for Cody Wallace on the line... Played football with this guy in HS... WAIT, let me rephrase, I practiced with this guy in HS, and was fortunate enough to have front-row seats (bench) to watch him play lol...

    Great guy, hope he makes it even if another guy's better (just being honest lol)...

    I like Braman, seems like a high motor guy and trying his best to take advantage of a second chance.

    The Texans.


    Seriously though, I want to see some OL play well as our depth is suspect. I like to watch Jamison tear it up in the back field.

    I also want to see Slaton do well as he is probably on the trade block.

    I really like him too (like most Texans fans I've heard this season)...

    I wonder, how much more do you think this guy can beef up, or if you'd even want him to? He looks a bit thin...

    Is this 100%? I heard that there is a chance he makes his debut tonight.

    Why did images of Slaton breast-feeding just run through my head?

    Arian Foster says its cause your sick.

    Whats up with Slaton? His injury must be pretty bad because you'd think this is possibly the end of the line for him. I certainly don't want the Texans to hold on to him this season but had hoped he'd showcase himself for a new team this pre-season.

    Unless the plan is to get himself on IR and ensure he gets his paycheck??

    Not necessarily to make team as many I want to focu will make team but i want to see more play from them:
    Brandon Harris, KJ, JJ, Barwin, Pemberton, DD, Holliday, Keo, McCain, Nolan...I expect to be quite busy.

    Mario Williams, I want to see him play and dominate to get his confidence up and get more comfortable at OLB. Of course he Probably won't play even though he needs the reps more than anyone on this team.

    I was under the impression that the starters were barely going to play, if they were going to play at all.

    I am not sensing much interest in this game but it will allows us good looks at man players.

    Got to say I'm getting impatient for the regular season now, you're right badboy, it'll be interesting to see how the backups perform with a bit more playing time, but after the offseason we've just had has dragged soooo bad i'm a little beyond getting excited 4 weeks into preseason.

    I want to see Tate and Ward's performance, so I know who's going to be the true #2 for next Sunday.

    I would like to see TJ Yates get some more reps this evening. I think he could be something with proper coaching and time, definitely a better long term investment than Leinart.
