This week we get the pleasure of having a real, live non-Chronicle employee live at Texans OTA’s. It’s exciting to actually read some independent thoughts. Interesting tidbits:â†µ
In camp the coach will start to juggle, and he forecasts a three-way battle to sub for Cushing between Xavier Adibi, Kevin Bentley and Danny Clark for a four-game starting stint on the strongside.â†µ
A little surprising that Darryl Sharpton didn’t get a mention and that Adibi did, considering how high they picked Sharpton and how far in the doghouse Adibi was last year.â†µ
This was just the second day of the kicker competition, and after a draw in round one, Kris Brown was a bit better than Neil Rackers. Brown hit five of five from 38 yards, Rackers four or five with a couple narrowly inside the right upright.â†µ
I really think this one is going to come down to the last cuts. These are two kickers who have extremely similar career lines, with Rackers having lower lows and higher highs. If Rackers isn’t in top form, we very well may see Kris Brown back again.
