Houston Texans At OTAs: Day One

Your Houston Texans completed the first day of their "voluntary" organized team activities today. Some high points and thoughts from the link in the previous sentence:

-Still no sign of Dunta Robinson. His absence is not yet costing him a paycheck, so we'll see how committed Dunta is once the ol' bank account starts feeling the pain of principle.

-I remain a skeptic of Brian Cushing until further notice, but I am pleased to see him speak so reverently of DeMeco Ryans.

-Memo to Dunta: DeMeco wants a new deal too, yet he's at OTAs and doing a rather swell job endearing himself to his teammates and the organization:

"It just lets them know that I care about them and I’m here to win games, and that’s what it’s all about," Ryans said. "We’re here to accomplish the goal of winning games. With me being here and all the other guys seeing me here, that just lets them know that that’s what I’m about. I’m about winning, winning first. That’s what’s it’s going to take for us to move forward as a franchise is to start winning games."

See, Dunta? You can be both resolute and unselfish. Those two qualities do not have to be mutually exclusive. That's not so hard, is it?

-James Casey is already turning heads. I am getting more and more excited to see how Kyle Shanahan incorporates him into the offense. A guy that talented and multifaceted is going to be hard to keep off the field.
