Guys, your Texans look very good… Just played a Niner game and beat the Niners at it…
HEADLINES 615- Trindon Holliday has now made this team, and as Mike put it on Twitter, sometimes you just catch lightning in a bottle for a few years with a returner, and maybe the Texans can this year with Trendon…
-And speaking of special teams, we can’t have a kicker controversy or battle, but we do, but there’s no chance they cut Bullock, right? But if there’s no chance, why let Graham kick that 2 nd FG?
630- …. Top 3….
645- So the Astros fired their manager… And it is not a story. No one wants to talk about it. No one wants to debate it. Even the Astros didn’t seem to want anyone to notice or discuss with the timing of it… I mean the Astros fired their manager, and the Texans had a preseason game and there is NO QUESTION what the bigger story in town is right now.
700- DeVier Posey- 15 catches on the year? I know that will sound like overreaction, but he is SOLIDLY 5 th on the WR depth chart, and the Texans NEVER go 5 wide, and when they do, it’s never actually 5 WRs…
-Flip side, the reason Posey is buried is that he’s been ineffective, yes, but Martin and Jean have each made big play after big play…
715- For me, one play stands out above all others, and I’m not sure it’s close, and it’s not Trindon’s return (James Casey’s first down that allowed the TD drive to continue after Schaub’s awful pass)
-Also, the drive where the Texans stopped the 9ers 5, yes FIVE, separate times… (See running diary from the game)
-And Harbaugh having EVERY right to be livid about the officials… The way the half ended!!!
730- The General, John McClain!
745- HornSolutions.net NO HUDDLE…. Mad Snake Disease! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/15/mad-snake-disease_n_1777748.html?utm_hp_ref=tw … Kobe scored 68 points in an exhibition game in China… in 15 minutes! FIFTEEN MINUTES! http://deadspin.com/5936088?utm_campaign=socialflow_deadspin_twitter&utm_source= deadspin_twitter&utm_medium=socialflow and he played an electric guitar!
800- We get to check out the Texans honesty here, potentially… Is Shayne Graham allowed to win the kicking battle? Because right now he would be, right? But I don’t think anyone thinks he can win it, but if he can’t, why would they let him kick that 2 nd FG on Saturday…
-And is there a battle at QB? Is there a chance they only carry 2? Because if they carry three, then… There’s only ONE ROSTER SPOT for ALL of these guys- Grimes, Bryant, Iglesias, Mondek, Smith, Harris, King, Fangupo, Hunter, Browner, Louiseau, Gaither, McManis Ball, Pleasant
815- Straw Man on Campus!….
And Melky Cabrera’s website is maybe the greatest and the worst thing in sports history at the same time… And yeah, I guess I shouldn’t give him credit like I wanted to last week (cut his suspension in half because he was honest. Ha!)
830-AROUND THE NFL… Every Monday at 830, should we do this? Go around the rest of the league (we are going to have to make sure we’re not duplicating the No Huddle, so maybe on Monday’s we should make sure the No Huddle is just NFL stuff) But I think here we can play NFL Films music and go around the AFC South and any other NFL news from the weekend.
845- Luck at the final play of the 1 st quarter, after a MISERABLE quarter against the Steelers…
900- Amare Stoudemire… He’s a children’s author!
915- Straw Poll!… -And let’s revisit Astros firing their manager and a tree falling in the woods
945- Shiner Whiner Line… Wingstop 2 Minute Drill… Toss to Mike and Brad….
