    Who is Kubiak looking to go away from? It would seem to be his focus is on run-blocking, and Pitts has been prone to penalties.

    With the positive replies about Flannigan's ineptness, I think he will go to Center replacing Flannigan. At least with Studdard, you know you will have someone up front that will fight and fight hard. Obviously, something has to be done and quick.

    Pitts is a walking big play killer. I wonder how many plays through the existence of this franchise Pitts has killed? I can remember many DD 20+ yard runs that were called back. If you see a flag down on a Texans big play, you can almost guarantee that you will hear from the ref...

    "Holding. Offense #69. 10 yard penalty. Replay 3rd down."

    I found the part about Chris White most interesting. I wonder if they'll give him a series (not in garbage time) against the Titans. Hmmm, maybe if we get an early lead.

    Studdard has the heart of a lion.

    First...I'm a Longhorn so I might be a little biased. But Studdard is a beast, he doesn't have great size but he has an unbelievable motor and mean streak, something that this OL is definitely missing.

    I would really like to see what Studdard can do with pulling and run blocking. Whatever it is, I'm glad to see Kubiak doing something. We're losing the battle of the trenches on both sides of the ball.

    Real classy of you.

    I know Ephraim's play has been questionable lately, but everyone always knew he's supposed to be a backup LT. And he has been nothing but a standup guy and class act since he got here. I wish we had encouraging news on Spencer, but last I heard it's still not looking good on that front.

    Move Weary to Center and bench Flannigan.

    Spencer has the same type of knee injury that I have right now. Trust me, he won't be playing football for a while if ever. Rehab for that type of injury has a timeframe of multiple years.

    Yeah, I can recall at the time of his injury that there was serious concern that Spencer may never get back.

    Yep...that's why I was disappointed that the Texans yet again did not address the OL. Our only addition in Jordan Black couldn't even beat at Salaam.

    I don't think it's Weary (on the hot seat) since Kubiak said on his radio show yesterday that he played his best game on Sunday since he's (Kubiak) been here. So, if it's not Fred then it must be Chester or Ephraim or Flanagan.

    I don't think its Salaam, even though he has played really bad the last couple games, I think he is the best LT on the team. Also...Studdard is a Guard and I don't know if Kubiak would want to start a rookie at Center.

    Weary is probably our best o-lineman. He and Winston are solid on the right.

    Pitts is having a terrible season, so I wouldn't be surprised if Studdard performs that he replaces him. The o-line was our biggest problem last week...Pitts' man is the one who got in to bring down Schaub on that QB draw. Chester just whiffed on the block. Other than that he's been slow-footed and penalty prone.

    Chris White will end up starting at Center sooner rather than later, IMO. The tough part is figuring out what to do at LT...Salaam is hurting us having to play so much.

    Wait, I thought that was Salaam's job. Rally killer. :p Averaging 2 holding penalties and 2 false start penalties per game. Way to be consistent! :rolleyes: Man, I hope Spencer can come back next year. That will really suck if we get another freakin' Boselli incident. :mad:

    Hey pardon me if I'm playing the role of the r****ded rabbit but, have heard nothing about Frye, the tackle we got as one of our fifth round picks from Va Tech, I believe. He had some attributes similar to Staley from Central Michigan just less playing time and experience. Speed in the 40, strength, etc. Did he make the cut on the team, on the practice squad? Just curious ... Since, Kuby's going for a hard look at the youth just thought it might bear worth mentioning.
