Everyone knows by now that we lost two starters in yesterday's practice. Jacques Reeves will be out for 6-8 weeks with a fractured fibula, and Chris Myers will be out for an undetermined amount of time with a high ankle sprain. Most of you probably heard by now that Gary Kubiak was irate with yesterday's morning session as well. Here's the video if you need to get caught up in a hurry.
Brian Cushing has a new haircut, and he talked about it yesterday. He seems to take it all lightly and identifies that while it saves him from the heat, the best part is that veterans seem to have respected him for his willingness to cut his locks at their direction. He also mentions a little bit about Connor Barwin, who is his roommate during training camp.
The BESFs reared their ugly head yesterday with regard to the Texans a couple of times. First of all, DeMarcus Faggins claims that the Titans environment is much more laid back and therefore more conducive to winning. Because if there's one thing that Petey knows about, it's success. Speaking of success, Vince Young can't wait to play in an Oilers uniform. Actually, as much of a problem as I have with the Titans wearing these uniforms, I don't have an issue with Young being pumped about wearing them. Considering he grew up in Houston, it's pretty understandable.
After receiving a lot of criticism in the last few days around the Texans blogosphere, the Wonder Twins at the Chronicle put out pretty solid articles this morning. Richard Justice wrote a piece about Kubiak giving up play-calling duties to Kyle Shannahan. Justice had good points about the Bears game being a turning point and broke down the benefits of Kubiak not calling plays. John McClain wrote an article about Glover Quin and the recent assertion by Gil Brandt that he will be a surprise in the league this year. As BFD pointed out, McClain has a great sense of history and you can tell that he respects Brandt's opinion very much.
