(On expectations for team) "Well, the expectations for the organization is to win a championship, that can't get done until we win the AFC South or make the playoffs so we've got to stay focused on those two things and that will be our goal, but we've got to understand the work that has to come to accomplish those goals, this is the time of the year when it's about work."
(On RB situation) "We've got five very young football players. They're all young, I mean what's the oldest guy, three years (NFL experience) or something and it's going to be very competitive, it's going to be right down the middle with all of them. You've got Steve (Slaton) who's had a fine year in this league coming back off an injury, so like a lot of spots on our team it will be very competitive."
(On priorities in settling kickers and other positions battles) "I don't think any of them will be settled early, I don't think that's the case, I think they'll be settled over the long haul, and it will be very, very competitive from that stand point. We've got an excellent pre season ahead of us, we play three playoff teams and Super Bowl teams so you know, what more could you ask for from a competition stand point and checking everyone out. So, it'll be a long haul, we'll see how it goes."
(On thoughts of this first day) "Probably had too many balls on the ground, Center and QB exchange, but you're probably going to have a few of those when you haven't worked in a while. We'll get that fixed right away and I like the conditioning of the players. I like the excitement, but it doesn't take long for it to hit reality. Probably about twenty minutes in to practice they see what they're in for this summer. So it's just time to work."
(On how confidence the team is coming in to training camp) "Absolutely (we are more confident). I was told back in college by one of my coaches that "Confidence is a result of demonstrative performance." I feel like after the way we finished last season and taking the next step for this franchise we should have confidence. We've had a great offseason of work. We have all the players and enough pieces to the puzzle in place."
(On how much time together the offense need to establish a good running game) "I think that's one of the first and foremost goals in this offense. It's the first in order for us to take the next step as a team. Especially on the offensive side of the ball we have got become more consistent and more balanced."
(On fans talking about "Super Bowl" for the Texans for the first time) "If you don't have that as your goal in this business then you're in the wrong business. That is what we've set ourselves up for. We can talk about it all we want, but we have to come out here every day and work to get there. We just have to take it one day at a time. Ultimately that's our destination and where we want to be."
we basically know who Trindon Holiday is and yall should too!!!
"Rookie kick returner Trindon Holliday turned some heads with his speed in punt return drills. With seven defenders running at him and no blockers, he fielded two consecutive punts and simply outran the coverage to the sidelines, from which point he turned on the jets and burst upfield. The first return was to the left side, second to the right. Both drew big cheers from the crowd. A fan standing in front of me summed it up by saying: "If he gets to the edge, it's over."
