Theory: Players Are Under Immediate Scrutiny

1

Adding Nathan Slaughter as a UDFA, then releasing him a few days later, coupled with what Ganguli said about players like Labhart being at Reliant from 7 .am. to 7 or 8 p.m., makes me think O'Brien is throwing everything at them all at once...then cutting the ones who can't hack it. Whether that's timeliness to meetings, aptitude on tests, and production on the practice field, it seems O'Brien is putting those players through rigorous "testing" and only the fittest players remain when the dust settles. The Boot Camp rookie OTA is to tear them down and build them up as new players who have no past; only a present condition that shows ability to remain or enough deficiencies to be released. Here's the quote from the article that I base my speculative theory upon: "With no restrictions on how long he could spend with them, Texans coach Bill O'Brien had them from about 7:30 a.m. to 7 or 8 p.m. during rookie minicamp. They were tested on the field and in the classroom. Their jobs were to learn as much as possible and say as little as possible. They've maintained the refrain that their pasts don't matter anymore."

More connections to consider, for potential Texans coaching moves and potentially the QB selection to be made. Hear what UCF's George O'Leary has to say about Bill O'Brien. Intriguing, indeed.

Rumored D-Coord Candidate, Tomsula, and Vance Joseph: The 49er Connection

Taking a gander at Vance's wikipedia entry, I found that he and current 49ers defensive line coach Jim Tomsula shared the sideline at San Fran for four seasons--2007 through 2010--and THAT could be important if Tomsula becomes the defensive coordinator here. It's who you know, folks.

One fan wonders if the premium on character concerns is perhaps a little too high. The Houston Texans sure could have used some running back depth in last Sunday's loss versus the Kansas City Chiefs.

Ed Reed Draws Comparisons Between Schaub & Flacco: Embattled & Rattled

Ed Reed says he spoke with Matt, and although his situation is different from Flacco's back in 2011 (Ed references the 2011 Texans-Ravens playoff game) he says he knows what Matt is going through. Ed also has words for the fan(s) who confronted Matt recently.

I'm the soul crusher who gift wraps points for the opponent. You thought you could trust me to manage the game, but then I said "I can do so much more than manage. I can cause mayhem." And I did, to the tune of record-setting pick 6's and more fetal positions than the Duggar family's kids. So do yourself a favor, and protect yourself from mayhem. Like me.
