Seems about right I think.

QB:David Carr
FB:Jameel Cook
RB:Domanick Davis
WR:Andre Johnson
WR:Eric Moulds
TE:Mark Bruener
LT:Seth Wand
LG:Chester Pitts
C:Mike Flanagan
RG:Steve McKinney
RT:Zach Wiegert

LE:Mario Williams
DT:Robaire Smith
DT:Seth Payne
RE:Anthony Weaver
LOLB:Shantee Orr
MLB:Sam Cowart
ROLB:Morlon Greenwood
CB:Dunta Robinson
CB:Demarcus Faggins
FS:C.C. Brown
SS:Glen Earl

K:Kris Brown
P:Chad Stanley

The only problem with that lineup is TE. I thought we brought in Putzier to start? The OT's concern me too, I hope the coaching helps or else I want the rookies to start.

Actually I think Babin/ Peek will start at DE and Weaver will start at DT and Robaire/ Payne will battle for the other starting job. As of right now I, Kubes said the TE job is wide open & it looks as though Ryans will start at Weakside linebacker.

I can see Weaver playing DT but they wouldn't put Mario on the bench. They have too much invested in him to not start him. Maybe it will be something like this:

DE:Mario Williams
DT:Anthony Weaver
DT:Robaire Smith/Seth Payne
DE:Jason Babin/Antwan Peek

That's what he had meant. Babin or Peek will start at one end spot, with Mario at the other. Then Robaire Smith/Seth Payne will start at one DT spot with Weaver at the other. Then Travis Johnson will rotate in. I really believe our LBs will be Ryans-Cowart-Greenwood, which I am stoked about. I haven't been this excited for our front 7 in the history of the franchise.

I also see Putzier as the starting TE and Buchanon making a comeback for the other CB spot. Aside from that, sounds pretty bang-on.

Oh, my mistake. Yea because there's no way Mario will sit the bench.

I would say Peek and Babin will be in on 3rd downs. Weaver is the run stopper we have to have on the edge. TE is wide open hell Joppru could be starting. I think Ryans will win the job in camp, and I also think one of the rookie OL will win one also.

Re: TE, we'll see plenty of two TE sets that include Putzier.
Re: the OTs, the new staff is high on Seth Wand. They really like him, which is good enough for me.

Combination of injury and lack of ideal attitude/work ethic.

In passing situations, I'll be curious to see if we try rushing the passer with Weaver and Williams at DT, with Babin and Peek at DE.
