Hey everyone, I am excited to test out the Thread portion of Substack. My goal for this thread is to offer a place for my readers to discuss the preseason game between the Texans and the Rams. We can also cover other questions you may have. I’ll be on throughout the day today (Friday 8/19) through this evening for the late game.
Feel free to question or comment in the thread.
Any specific players you want to see tonight? For me...obviously is Davis Mills. But beyond that I want to see Kenyon Green get some playing time, even if it is with the 2s. Jon Greenard, Nico Collins, and Ross Blacklock are others I am keeping an eye on tonight.
No reports yet on any starters sitting. Tunsil and Cooks may see limited snaps.
Hearing no Rasheem Green. Stingley could play a bit. Tunsil and Cooks may not play.
From Aaron Wilson
No Tunsil, Howard, K Green, or Britt. So four potential OL started out.
Grungier-Hill speed returning to 2021 form
Texans had 11 penalties last week against Saints. Already back with another penalty
Andy Janovich first FB in the game. Last week Quess got the start
Nico Collins is one player I wanted to see tonight. Shows out first play
Odd play design call by Pep on third and long. Three go routes?
Stingley gives up a reception. Odd coverage
Blacklock active with his hands, good to see
Kamu trying to make the decision at LB tough
Man that was beautiful PD by Stingley
Teagan Q moving some LBs with the run blocking
Max Scharping got whipped on that blitz
Oh Greenard, that wasn’t nice on the PA!
Roy Lopez getting in on the sack game. Texans with a 4 man rush
Sorry but Marlon Mack looks like he is running in slow motion
Grayland Arnold. That’s how you make the 53 man roster. Great ST coverage
The offensive line looks rough tonight. Missing some key starters but the depth seems a bit scary.
Grayland Arnold locking down his roster spot tonight.
Mills’ placement has been questionable tonight
Offense has been on schedule a number of times tonight. Mills just has not taken advantage that.
Thomas “legs” Booker with a nice PD
Nico gets the turf monster. He seems to have foot work mental blimps from time to time.
Jump ball man Nico!
Kyle Allen is proving to be a nice QB2. Decisive, clean foot work.
Wow the rook TE!
Dare Ogunbowale has some juice tonight. RB4
