Kubiak not pleased with Texans’ Wednesday practice

Posted by Nick Scurfield on June 6, 2012 – 4:42 pm

Coach Gary Kubiak gave Texans players a bit of a break on Wednesday, the ninth day of organized team activities (OTAs), by letting them practice without helmets in the blistering heat outside at the Methodist Training Center.

The result was a far cry from what Kubiak expected.

“I just told the guys right now, I took their helmets off today and gave them a bone, so to speak, and they didn’t respond to it,” Kubiak said after practice. “Last year’s team responded to it very well. This year’s team’s first chance wasn’t very good. I told them I’ll give them one more chance tomorrow or there won’t be any more of those days. 2011 is over. It’s 2012 and we’ve got a lot of work to do, and our expectations as a football team stay the same all the time.”

The Texans are practicing with 28 rookies , and they’re particularly young on offense during OTAs with quarterback Matt Schaub (foot) and wide receiver Andre Johnson (knee) watching from the sidelines. Kubiak had artificial crowd noise piped in at practice for the first time in OTAs on Wednesday to try to rattle the players’ concentration.

Still, Kubiak expects better results.

“We just threw a lot at them, worked with some noise, worked some two-minute, really tried to gas them and see who could think when they were tired,” Kubiak said. “I had a couple of guys who have to think a lot better, so we got some good work and we’ve got one more day tomorrow.”

Thursday is the final day of OTAs. The Texans will then have a three-day mini-camp next week from June 12-14.
