    Thanks for the tidtidbits. Although, I hate to get pumped so early, I'm starting to get football fever.

    It'll be fun to watch preseason games because our depth has improved so much.

    If the UDFA WRs are on the active roster, then the Texans just had a bad draft.

    God I hate the term "carted off." You immediately think broken leg or torn ACL.

    Was gonna make a thread but figure this would be the place to ask.

    I got training camp tickets for this Wednesday. The ticket says 8:30am and the gates open at 7am. For anyone that has attended one, how long do these usually last? It would be my first time attending one.

    Since we're going to be comparing Fuller to Doctson for years, it looks like the Texans have dodged the early potential injury bullet. Doctson has been sidelined all summer with a nagging injury and is on the PUP list for precautionary reasons. This can be nothing, but it can also be another Perriman rookie season.

    It's more like Fuller vs:

    Treadwell
    Sheperd
    Doctson
    Every other wr receiver not named Coleman

    Yea that Doctson news sucks

    Sounds like our team is comprised of nothing but future Hall of Famers who have no flaws. All of our linebackers are bigger, quicker and have violent hands! All of our WRs are lightning fast and can make you miss in a phone booth! Our DLs are powerful bull rushers who will manhandle weaker OLs, except not our OLs because they are made of granite and just won the World Strongman Competition!

    I don't want to be accused of hyperbole, but this could be the best team ever assembled in the history of organized athletics.
