    This rocks.David Anderson is the man.He was so much fun to watch at Colorado State.I can't wait to see him making some noise in the nfl.The Texans need all of the help that they can get.Now if only Mike Hass can get a chance to play for the Bears.

    Can't you sign someone off another team's practice squad as long as you put them on your active roster? If so, the Bengals should seriously consider Hass, as another one of their WRs are out this weekend..(Kelley Washington) and Lewis did give Walter a chance as the #3 WR so maybe a better situation for Hass..

    Another example of the obsession with white receivers alway being compared to Proehl or Welker etc.

    From http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/sports/fb/texansfront/59 16633.html
    Closeup: Wide receiver David Anderson
    David Anderson is being mentioned in the same sentence as Steve Tasker â€â€￾ by fans, not the Texans' coaches or players.
    Tasker, who was
    drafted by the Oilers, signed with the Bills after being waived. He
    played on four Super Bowl teams and became one of the best special
    teams players in NFL history.
    "Sure, that's a
    compliment, but the truth is I hear comparisons to just about every
    white receiver under 6 feet," Anderson said with a laugh. "I've heard Don Beebe and Steve Largent.
    "The one I'm hearing now is Wes Welker."
    At 5-10, 196, Anderson is taller than the Patriots' receiver, who had more than 100 catches last season.
    Anderson, who had
    12 catches for 131 yards and a touchdown last season, is the kind of
    player that a team's coaches just can't cut loose.
    "I'm so much more comfortable in this offense now," he said. "I'm playing with a lot more confidence."
    Anderson, a
    seventh-round pick from Colorado State in 2006, is a special-teams
    demon who makes enough good plays at receiver to stay on the team into
    the regular season.
    For the second season in a row, he's probably going to force the coaches to keep an extra receiver

    PutAnderson in the "Wes Welker role" in the slot and he'd kick ass as he's a great after the catch runner. But the Texanscan't do that since Kevin Walter is already a starter, that would be a gross violation of NFL protocol, possibly even a crime against humanity. Anderson's best chance to see the field regularly would be with another team, but there probably aren't any that would give him a chance.

    Lets hope the maximum of one white WR rule is relaxed this year either in Houston or Cleveland.
    Plus its ironic the way Anderson is being compared to Tasker in Houston. Tasker was waived by the Houston Oilers. Looks like the fans know that was a mistake and don't want a repetition. Does that make them the "sober white fans" in Houston at least?

    "Anderson, who had 12 catches for 131 yards and a touchdown last season, is the kind of player that a team's coaches just can't cut loose."


    Wow, almost suggesting that a player of his "ethnicity" (and therefore stiff hips) should NORMALLY be cut.

    I also love how they're suggesting that 5' 10" is short for an NFL WR, when every other team has tiny black midgets playing WR.

    Double-standard-ridden, racist drivel. If I remember, it was David Anderson himself who once said "I'll be the first white boy to dance after a touchdown" when talking about his love of dancing like a black person (and suggesting that average white males are too "lame" to dance as well as blacks).

    I guess he was trying to save the jocksniffing sportswriter the time and effort in insulting white WRs himself. I despite whites who use racial slurs against whites (especially the most popular one used our caste enemies, "white boy").

    Honestly, I could care less about Anderson making any team....he seems to be a perfect caste-washed pawn (self-hating, self-insulting, flashy). A guy like this gets a roster spot while Danny Farmer is sitting at home.Edited by: Thrashen

    Remember last year how all the drunk white fans were in love with Jacoby Jones? They wanted him to be the Texans' #2 WR as a rookie, replacing the overachiever the team had slated to startthere, Kevin Walter. Jacoby was fast, Jacoby was a big play machine, Jacoby this Jacoby that. Turns out Walter kept his position and stunned everyone but the folks at CF with the nice year he had.


    Meanwhile Jones keeps sliding down the depth chart. He's even been passed by a second overachiever, David Anderson, who is now fourth on the depth chart. Anderson should be the primary slot receiver with his skill set, but at least he's entrenched on the roster this season instead of being waived periodically.
    <H3 ="Text-TextSubhed BoldCond PoynterAgateZero" id=id2437309>Anderson earned it </H3>
    No receiver did more to help his cause during the preseason than third-year pro David Anderson, who was cut right at the end of training camp last year before being brought back . This year the former seventh-round draft choice was never on the bubble and will be the Texans' fourth receiver Sunday ahead of Jacoby Jones.
    "David's earned it," coach Gary Kubiak said. "He's going to play a bunch in this game. "

    That's great to hear. David was a very good WR at Colo. St. There's no reason he cannot be a productive player in the NFL if GIVEN A CHANCE like so many other white WRs out there. Though it looks like he will get a well deserved chance and let's hope he makes the most of it because we all know the short leash he'll be working with(especially because he's the 2nd white WR on depth chart).

    David Anderson would make a great third WR for the Texans. He fits perfectly in the slot role for todays NFL. And I'm not casting David Anderson like the talking heads are doing with Jordy Nelson. Nelson is either a Split End or a Flanker, not a slot man. Matt Jones is naturally a Split End as is Kevin Curtis and other whites. Drew Bennett is a Flanker. Unlike the talking head idiots like Mike Greenberg, my projections actually make sense.

    another blurb from houston chronicle

    Coach Gary Kubiak plans to continue using wide receiver David Anderson as the Texans' slot receiver.

    Last season, André Davis entered the game in three-receiver sets and lined up outside while Kevin Walter moved inside to the slot. But in this year's season opener, Anderson played instead of Davis.

    Kubiak said Anderson earned the time in preseason and that Davis will primarily be used to backup Walter and Andre Johnson.

    Last season, Davis finished third in the NFL with an average of 17.7 yards per catch.

    "Coming out of camp, the best thing we had was David inside at the zebra position, and he earned the right to play," Kubiak said. "That's how we ended up going into the game.

    "Do we have faith in André Davis? Yeah, we do."

    Anderson had one catch for 2 yards in Sunday's 38-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Good news. Having an all-black defense may make it a little easier for the team to have three white receiving threats after Andre Johnson on the field at the same time, including TE Daniels.
