    Listening to Houston sports radio channel this afternoon the three people behind the mics had nothing but high praise for Luck's character as a man, a competitor and as an ambassador for the NFL. Like Manning before him Luck is obviously viewed as a champion in more important ways than a football player. With all the bad and very bad news coming from this sport it is more than refreshing to know our team has a leader in more categories than just football. Thank you Houston for recognizing a true hero in what matters more than the score (although he does like to score a lot of points).

    I don’t care how exciting the pick was. If he keeps Andrew healthy and opens holes for the running game it will lead to exciting plays.

    The sad part is we could have drafted him instead of Bjorn Werner.... and at the same time negated the impulse to trade for Trent Richardson less than a year later. I realize that many here hate....with the fire of a thousand hells.... the idea of drafting a RB in the 1st round. But looking at it with 20/20 hindsight.... it would have been better than the Werner/Richardson fiasco.

    AC has started 105 of a possible 110 games in his career. Meaning has has missed 5 games in his career and none since 2015. Injuries can and do happen in football but based on history it's pretty narrow minded to claim AC is unreliable because the team held a veteran entering his 8th NFL season out of the first preseason game.

    I liked what I saw from the two of them. Neither played like a deer stuck in the headlights and neither looked overwhelmed by the speed and size of the game! When Walker comes back I'd much rather see him as the SAM - those 3 on the field at the same time give me some optimism that though they are raw, thier athletic ability and speed will cover up a few warts. As far as Skai is concerned, he didn't look overwhelmed physically to me, at least not any better or worse than your normal rookie taking on lineman that make it to the second level. He covered the middle of the field well and it was Green that gave up the TD to Vannett (the TE). Outside of that I don't recall him giving up much of anything......? Dare I say it.....we may have our Derrick Brooks and Hardy Nickerson....both long and lean and flew around the ball. Perhaps these guys are watered down versions, but if thier 100% was equivalent to those two's 85% then we'll have a solid linebacker core!

    I think its time we show what this so called 32nd rank team is really all about.

    Well from what I heard about Watson last year and giving to the employees who went through the tragedy and what Watt did...we should be praising their guys. Nice to hear some good for a change.

    Nope. Hamstring injury, and his injury settlement with the Patriots suggests it's not too serious. Speculation says he might be ready at the start of the season. I think just having someone in the stable for midseason would be nice, assuming Rogers (who struggles to stay healthy himself) and other young guys don't step up. I think Matthews would be an ideal slot, and he knows Reich's offense. Side note: They probably won't move Cain to IR until the end of the preseason, otherwise they have to expose him to waivers.

    I don't know if I'd call it dirty. It was bad tackling technique, but it looks worse in slo-mo. The first contact was his shoulder hitting the receivers arm, but it was the direct helmet-to-helmet that got him ejected. Had the receiver caught the ball, the ball in his hands would have been the first thing Thomas hit and it would have been a great play. But it was still dumb to duck his head down and blindly dive low at a receiver. Hooker did that last year and almost took a knee to the back of the head... Not dirty, just dumb.

    "What an exciting first round pick..." What will be exciting is winning games. If you are dissappointed because he isn't a flashy playmaker you should remember none of those guys get to pretend they are so awesome until the big uglies get the job done.

    I, like I'm sure many, paid close attention to Nelson last night. At least as much as can be done on a tv broadcast. And he is every bit as good as advertised. The times he got beat, and there were a couple, it because he is just not yet prepared for the level of moves that a veteran dlineman has at is disposal. A couple of things that I think he needs to work on - When helping with the center he has a tendency to turn his hips towards the defender which is going to open him up to delayed blitzes and stunts through his area. I'd like him to stay a bit more square, so that he can quickly come off his initial block when that happens. - In pass protection a couple of time his knees would straighten and he would bend more at the waist. You have to keep that but down and knees bent in pass protection. Neither of those are cause for concern just a couple of things that, if I were his coach, we'd be focusing on before the next game.
