Texans Down 'N Dirty: Self-Licking Ice Cream Cone Edition


Jerome Solomon believes that Dunta Robinson will be a maximum of three days late to training camp because Robinson needs the Texans.  He also believes though, that Rick Smith and the team will agree to not franchise Dunta again in 2010 before he reports to camp.  Not sure about that one.  Also from the Chronicle, all tickets to the open practices during training camp have been distributed, so if you want to go, get acquainted with eBay.

I know this is a little bit of a self-licking ice cream cone (sorry, that's definitely a jarhead phrase), but I wanted to call everyone's attention to the article that Riott wrote about the 4-3 under last night.  I wanted to site his article partially because it's outstanding, and also because when I logged on this morning the comments section of said article wouldn't show up.  I don't know why this is or if it's happening for others, but if it is feel free to leave comments here for that article.  Great job, Riott.

The official site did a good interview with the longest tenured Texan, kicker Kris Brown.  NFL fans are quick to dismiss players from his position, but don't fool yourself into thinking that he is not an integral emotional leader of the team that has seen all the downs that this franchise has had.  Also from the official site, a breakdown of running backs behind Steve Slaton.  On a somewhat related note, PFT did a piece about Raider RB Justin Fargas, who they believe might get cut before the season because of the presence of Darren McFadden and Michael Bush.  I know it's out of left field, but what would you guys think of picking up Fargas to backup Stevie Wonder?
