I just dont get it

 

I just don’t care. He hasn’t played for us since 2017 and I’m glad he got hurt so Rivera was forced to put Moton in with Williams solidifying that Kalil was not worthy of ever coming back. Too bad Williams got re-injured.

Please pray for Deshaun Watson. 

Bill O’Brien: Matt Kalil is our starting left tackle

Posted by Josh Alper on August 18, 2019, 8:14 AM EDT
 

Matt Kalil did not start at left tackle for the Texans on Saturday, but he will be in the lineup for Week One.

Roderick Johnson got the start against the Lions with Deshaun Watson at quarterback, which led to questions for head coach Bill O’Brien about the plans for a key spot on an offensive line that the Texans want to be better than the one they put on the field last year. O’Brien said after the game that Kalil “is the starting left tackle.”

 

Kalil had his foot stepped on during Wednesday’s practice and didn’t practice on Thursday, but O’Brien said that wasn’t the reason he sat out against Detroit.

“I didn’t want him to play,” O’Brien said, via the Houston Chronicle. “He’ll play next week. Just managing reps throughout the preseason, that’s all that is.”

Kalil didn’t play at all last year because of a knee injury and his play has been shaky when healthy in recent years, which has led some to question the Texans’ belief that he’ll be part of an upgraded blocking group this year. Barring a trade or other acquisition in the near future, it appears that O’Brien and company will take their chances.

It's hilarious that the tweet at the top of the page says kalil is finally injury free. We heard that poo before too, Houston.

It's like a broken record. "I'm the healthiest I have ever been!!!" 2 days later: Kalil misses practice after foot stepped on.

    • Lol. No merit? You have a stat that in two years has Gano’s best year ever and conveniently ignores the year that made us draft a kicker. A stat that ignores the fact that Gano missed 4 games and is hurt yet again, 3rd time in 4 seasons. It ignores the fact that Gano’s best year ever was because Rivera only let him attempt 1 50 yard FG. Rivera has taken the ball out of his hands and you want to use a stat purely based on his attempts. How about all the punts when we were in FG range? Where’s that in the capture rate? If you also can’t get that Gano cost us $3.5m each year of Butker’s contract then there’s no point. Gano’s done nothing the past three years to merit the amount of faith people put in him around here. Keeping Butker would have been a better decision for our team. Whether you consider it to have merit or not makes not difference to those of us not blind to reality. Andy Reid has faith in his kicker, our coach does not in his.
    • his run style, foot quickness, and speed, all look like cmc. probably needs work in route running but this dude is by no means a cap clone
    • he kind of just did. buffalo's D ain't no joke. and he did it with a crappy OL as well. the guy is going to be great having on the field with and spelling CMC. he's got a lethal punch, he's fast, it looks like he's got good vision, and he's got much better hands than advertised and has potential as a decent route runner.  i'm on board having this guy on the team. gives us another good weapon on offense.
