    I was just looking at some depth charts and if there is a season the Texans will probably start 11 whites.[​IMG]

    Who do you think is going to start, WA33? I'm not sure about their OL situation is, but I'm fairly sure about the rest of them. They're only gonna have 3 white starters on D, they moved Mario Williams to OLB from what I've heard.

    QB- Matt Schaub
    FB- James Casey??
    WR- Kevin Walter
    TE- Owen Daniels
    C- Chris Meyers
    RG- Mike Briesel
    RT- Erc Winston

    Defense
    DE- J.J. Watt
    ILB- Brian Cushing
    OLB- Connor Barwin or Brooks Reed

    Yeah, I'm thinking 9 or 10 as of now. I don't think they use a FB much, and Casey is still in the mix at TE, battling Dreessen to be Daniels' backup. Shaun Cody is half-White half-Mexican, so if he's considered White then they might have 11. Edited by: Don Wassall

    Schaub, Daniels, Casey, Walter, Chris Myers, Mike Briesel, Eric Winston, Cody(if we consider him white), Watt, Cushing and Barwin. That's the best case scenario. It looks like the lowest team will be Raheem's "Blackeneers. If Cody Grimm doesn't start, and I doubt he will, it will be two white starters.

    There's a good chance the Bucs will let Barrett Ruud leave via free agency. Hopefully Tampa will continue to draw poorly evenif they'rein playoff contention again this season.
    The Texans have to make the playoffs this season otherwise Gary Kubiak will be gone. He was almost fired after last season's collapse following a good start. The Texans defense was terrible last year; hopefully Cushing, Watt, Reed and a healthy Barwin will make it respectable this year.Edited by: Don Wassall

    Not sure where the best place to post this is, but I thought it was a cool pic.

    Yep, he burned Auburn's DBs for 140 yards, one TD (longest one in a NC game), and a two point conversion in the NC game. The only reason he wasn't drafted was due to low melanin content. Hope this kid can make the Texans....they're starting to be one of my favorite teams in the NFL.

    Same here. I'm gonna try to watch every game of theirs I can that doesn't conflict with watching Hillis. Though since atdhe is gone, I may just catch whatever garbage comes on television this year!

    This should be the season Houston finally breaks through and makes the playoffs. They've been held back by a terrible defense, but if the young White talent they've drafted makes an impact their offense is good enough that they should be able to win 10 games and battle the Colts for the division title.

    They cut David Anderson and (hyped) Amobi Okoye.. my guess is that he'll get big money from some other team.

    I figured David Anderson would get cut- I didn't think it would happen this early though. Anderson was nothing more than a very solid #3, maybe #4 WR. These types of white WRs don't get a chance to last long in the NFL, especially on a team that will likely have two other white WRs on their opening day roster. Had to use a CYA method of some quotas for the bruthas didn't you Houston?

    IMHO, Jeff Maehl is better anyway- as a great #2 WR or slot man. I predict Maehl makes the team, so the David Anderson semi-roster snub doesn't sting that much.

    Anderson has signed with the Broncos.

    Good article on Brooks Reed.

    Houston Texans rookie linebacker Brooks Reed aspires to do more than resemble Clay Matthews.

    Here is an update from the Texans' camp that mentions Jeff Maehl and that injuries to all of the affletes ahead of him is getting him lots of playing time on the practice field. In the article is this response to a question from a reporter:

    The Texans will most likely be the whitest team starting Chris Meyers, Matt Schaub, Eric Winston, Mike Brisiel, Owen Daniels, Kevin Walters, James Casey, JJ Watt, Shaun Cody(mostly white), Connor Barwin, and Brian Cushing. A half white team.

    This may be good news for the White LBs. DWFs think that Adibi - a former "4/5 star" recruit to VA TECH - is now ready to have a "break out" in his 4th season in the NFL.

    ^^^^^^

    Texans' release Adibi, amongst mostly other affletes!

    I figured that Guy Miller would be cut because of the "numbers-crunch" at DL..

    Like Maehl, Toliver was a UDFA WR.

    Texans resign David Anderson. I was actually hoping Anderson would sign somewhere else and that they'd activate Maehl.
