Texans Have Their Hands Full w/ Cardinal Receivers

The Texans are going from playing an awful team, to the defending NFC Champs in the Arizona Cardinals, and a top passing game with Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin.

That could mean big trouble for the Texans, who have a pair of rookie cornerbacks in Glover Quin and Brice McCain. “We’ve got a couple young guys that are fixing to go against some great players,” coach Gary Kubiak said. “We’ll have to have some young guys grow up real fast.”

They say they are up for the job and that facing Pro Bowler Andre Johnson in practice each day has helped prepare them for this week.

“I go against some of the best receivers every day,” said McCain, a sixth-round pick. “I’m blessed that I get to go against Andre and the rest of the guys every day. So with Fitzgerald, I can’t wait to see what he’s like.”

Johnson said he doesn’t cut the rookies any slack because he wants to help them.

“I try to do everything I can when I’m out there in practice when I go against those guys to give them my best because when they go out in games they’re going to get his best,” he said. “So I just try to go out and do what I can to help those guys while trying to get myself better.”
