Texans Down 'N Dirty: Patchwork Secondary Edition


Practice seemed to be pretty boring yesterday, as everyone seemed to be focused on injuries.  Not only are Reeves and Myers on the report, but the two UDFA running back candidates are also dinged up--Arian Foster with a sore hamstring and Jeramiah Johnson has a bruised shoulder.

With all of the injuries and holdouts at cornerback, Brice McCain is getting the opportunity to get reps with the first team.  Alan Burge is impressed with his attitude and his play, but I just can't get behind the idea of relying on a 5'9" CB.  Antwaun Molden is supposedly two weeks away from getting taken off the PUP, Glover Quin will practice today and Fred Bennett has been reacting well to being the veteran among the CBs.  I personally believe that one of these three players will step up this year, but I have definitely been proven guilty of wishful thinking when it comes to the Texans before.  If that happens though, and Dunta Robinson is decent, we wouldn't have an elite secondary, but it will be better than what it is in camp right now.

Richard Justice thinks that Rex Grossman is an exemplary third string quarterback.  If you ask me, that's kind of like being the world's tallest midget.  On the subject of (mental) midgets, Vince Young told Esquire magazine that he will be the next black quarterback to win a Super Bowl and he will make it to the Hall of Fame.  I've been accused of being a VY apologist in the past, but this is just asinine, and I'm not the only one who thinks that.  To make HOF guarantees with the media would be stupid for any player in the league because it's not confidence; it's arrogance.  In the case of Vince Young, it's misplaced arrogance.
