Houston Texans Team Needs
By: Jason Chernofsky

The Texans, as we all know, will have their choice of who to pick, as they select first overall this season. Many believe Reggie Bush, as he is considered far and wide to be the best player in this draft. I am not saying this won't happen, just saying that one should not be so sure. Domanick Davis is more than capable as a starter, and in just 36 career starts, he has 735 rushes for 3024 yards, not to mention over 150 career catches for 1276 yards. Not the best RB ever, but for a 3rd year player, he has been rather good. All that has been done behind a rather poor OL this year. And, let's not forget Vernand Morency and Tony Hollings, both of whom provide solid youth and depth. Johnathan Wells, the current backup, will likely leave via FA, but those two are very solid players with solid potential. I just don't see the need at RB, in fact, it's probably the strongest position on the team.

Logic may say that the pick would be D'Brickashaw Ferguson, an OT out of Virginia, and they should work on rebuilding their OL, although, I very well could see them trading down in order to compile more picks and fill more needs. This isn't to bring down Bush, raise up Ferguson, or anything of the like. I just can't see a team with so many pressing needs drafting a player where they have no real need. Sure, Davis has small injury issues, and Bush is an amazing talent, and I am not saying they shouldn't draft him, just pointing out that it isn't a set pick yet.

...although Steve McKinney may not need to be upgraded at C, as he has been rather solid, every other player can easily be upgraded.

...Chester Pitts...may be the worst starter in the NFL at his position....I could very well see the Texans cutting him and saving a few million dollars.


Wow, what an expert. :blah:

while I question some of it, I was merely posting this as an outsiders recent view on our team and our needs. Hollings will be fine, worry about Morency. Buchanon will be fine, worry about Faggins.

Unless your posting this for laughs, this is useless. About the only thing this gives insight to is that this person plays Madden, because McKinney is our best OL in Madden...

This guy knows nothing about the Houston Texans. This is like getting an outside opinion of the Texans needs from a guy who lives in outer Mongolia and who's never seen a game of American football.

He said "Steve McKinney" and "rather solid" in the same sentence and he wasn't joking. Thanks for posting it YoungTexanFan but sadly he just doesn't seem to know much about his subject matter.

I didn't want to read something this lengthy, so I immediately scrolled down to the Chester Pitts section to see if the rest was worth reading. I can tell a lot about someone's knowledge of the Texans based on his/her opinion of Pitts. That one section saved me from reading the rest of the article.

Of course, comments made about McKinney in these replies made me go back up and read his section, which was too funny.

One thing I do agree with - if one of those 3 TEs drop, which is probable since TE usually drop (look at HMiller going to Pitt last year), it would be hard to not take the one that drops.

But, there are a lot of OL that will be hard to pass up there also.

Agreed. I laughed at much of his comments, but found a few to be fairly close. Luckily, it is not from one of my "trusted" draft sites, nor from my own opinion.

I think ive seen that article somewhere before.

Whatever the case.. I think that that guy writes his articles and just leaves blank spots at all the places where a player's name is supposed to be. Then he takes a hat and fills it full of the names of all the starters on the roster.... you get the point.

I agree with most of what you say, but i don't agree with the RB position. They need to let go of Hollings, who has not done a thing since he came here, keep VM, J. Wells is more than likely gone through FA, and DD has been hurt the last 3 yrs. at the end of the season when you need your top RB the most. Not that we were playing for a playoff spot, but what if we were. IT would not be a good thing. We would upgrade tremondously at the RB spot if we drafted Bush. We could also trade DD for an O-Lineman. You say we probably wouldn't get much for him in a trade, then turn around and say that he has done well the last three yrs. considering the O-Line we have. If that is the case can you imagine what he would do if he ran behind a great line. I don't see why we couldn't get someone good in return for him. The reason i would trade DD is because he does not have the break away speed Bush has. He was run down from behind what 4-5 times this yr. We also have VM. He is almost a clone of DD with out the injuries and the surgery. We could go to war with these two guys. (Bush and VM) in 2006 Baby!!! We can also pick up a power back from the FA's that will be available They will be used in short yardage and goal line situations anyway.

If they do say, Gary Walker and Robaire Smith could play DT, but they would be too small for DE

Hollings isnt costing much and wouldn't be worth it to cut right? Why not keep him and his quickness (he is supposed to have that i think) and see what he does with the Denver style blocking. From what I read about it from ya'll you make one move and run forward. If he doesn't break he might be a good cheap fit for the denver zone style blocking.

No, he is not costing us much , but he is not producing either. Tends to be hurt alot also. Just taking up a roster spot that could be filled with a quality FA. I believe he had limited exp. at the position when he was drafted and by the looks of it hasn't gained much exp. either.

this has to be the most UN-intelligent article on the Texans, as a whole, that I have EVER read. This guy is either totally clueless about football in general or just going off whatever MB he inhabits.

I'm not sure if Hollings is a horrilbe talent or if he is another example of incompetent coaching. I wonder if he will get a chance with Kubiak before we cut him loose.

Hollings isn't costing a whole lot but it also won't really cost anything to get rid of him, and he's occupying a roster spot that could be used elsewhere. As it is he can't even suit up, much less get on the field with Davis, Wells, and Morency, and if we bring in Bush there is absolutely no reason to keep Hollings. Hollings is supposed to be a quick RB but he hasn't proven anything in games and obviously hasn't done much in practices and camps to convince the coaches to play him, and assuming we bring in Bush there is our speed RB so Hollings would definitely be out the door, but I don't see him staying even if we don't get Bush.

General comment here. JMO but the coaching staff got axed for poor decisions. Seems like maybe refering to what the old coaches thought might not be such a good idea or a good indication of a player's real talent or what the new coaching staff will think of the players. I hope the new staff doesn't look at the opinions of the old staff at all and makes a new determination on every roster spot.

I wonder if Kubiak will do the same thing to the o-line Crennel did to his d-line. Just clean house, say buh-bye regardless of draft position, and move on. I imagine it won't be that severe but at some point soon I wouldn't be surprised if a bunch of guys(not neccesarily o-line) will be gone who the prior decision makers couldn't let go of for whatever reason.

exactly. I just find it hard to believe the decisions that we did.. sharper gone ..glenn gone (granted those were salary slashes) and we bring in p-buc and greenwood.. move coleman to safety (over who? mccree and matt stevens? if i remember correctly) .. We get Glenn earl ..who suppossively was 2nd rated to Taylor except for the injury and he starts all season until Brown (nothing against brown) takes over .. and he was what a 6th round "jewel"?

we get Payne/walker back for most of the year and our defense was just as bad (OVERALL) as when they were injured? what is going on with the defensive side of the ball?????

offensively..what was it.. DD fumbles the ball two years ago and Capers has a fit and sits him down a game ..yet Bradford was continued to play and drop passes (important ones)... not bad mouthing him, but inconsistancy is not what we need from a #2 WR.. does Bradford get Benched for that? no..

OL .. lets see Wand starts all 2 years ago..we bring in Riley who was a RT his whole career and we put him at LT ..( heck we should have just put in Ragone then so Riley wouldn't be blocking his blind side :sarcasm: ) .. anyway.. riley can't cut it.. Wand doesn't play (and didn't think he did too bad for a rookie ..except for going against Sweeny) .. so what did we do.. we shifted the line and put a rookie Center in (that had been deactivated 1st 4 weeks) and ran with that until he got injured..... we bring in weigart and wade and pay big bucks.. weigart on/off injury .. and wade isn't playing up to par that we like ...

What is going on with the coaching staff there?? I just find it hard to believe that the money we put into the line and draftpicks.. that there is more talent to the line than setting the record for how fast a defense could knock out Carr (frank dux(jean claude van-dam) character in movie bloodsport would be proud)

I just find it hard to believe that this team could go backwards so fast... I believe there is talent on this team, just haven't tapped it yet.

Did I miss anything?????


end rant .. sorry guys :challenge :confused: :brickwall

Yep.

I would bet this guy has not watched a single texans game this year.

some funny quotes from this were

regarding Chester Pitts - "I could very well see the Texans cutting him and saving a few million dollars." LOL he is probably the best O-line guy we have, not saying much.

"In the draft, D'Brickashaw Ferguson from Virginia would be a good option with the first overall pick". LOL with the FIRST PICK!!!. I don't think so. He is a trade down option.

"Steve McKinney may not need to be upgraded at C, as he has been rather solid, every other player can easily be upgraded." - yeah McKinney is basically an allstar. No need to upgrade from him. LOL. I mean don't get me wrong, I like McKinney but he is starting become part of the problem and not part of the solution (on the field).

I have no problem with the decision to get rid of Glenn and Sharper. They are basically done as players. They went to two new teams and did nothing. Their careers are winding down and they are only getting slower and more injury prone. They were due to sign here for a lot of money. We cut them and they signed with other teams for fractions of what we would have had to pay them. So I have ZERO regrets about dropping them. (Yes I liked both of them but it was a good football decision.)

Now.....the guys we chose to replace them with. Don't get me started. I agree better decisions could have been made. I don't care for either guy, but I hope they change my mind next year if they make the team.
