Finally, I can get excited about what the Texans are doing. With key signees in certain positions, without hurting the pocket book too much, the Texans are looking more like a .500 winning team, and not like a bottom dweller again. Add the possible loss of Casserly, and this team could really take off. I would not be surprised if the Texans bounce back and surprise alot of teams and make a season out of things. Offense will be in place, the only difference will be if the Defense can make the switch to the 4-3 effectively and the safeties play much better. To me.........7-9 so far, with adding Reggie Bush, get even better picks.......9-7!:twocents:

I think if we take Reggie 1st..A Safety 2nd 2 linemen and another DB and then work on the rest...We will have a solid team

friend of mine had a good idea. He thinks we should draft a CB 2nd and move Buchanan to FS.

I think Buchanan may actually make a good FS.

I don't think PB tackles well enough.:twocents:

Buchanon doesn't/cannot tackle.

Your safeties are the last line of defense and to have a guy that can't tackle...oh, hell no would I put Buchanon back there.:eek:

PBuc would be an awful safety. He's actually just plain awful. Just hearing/reading his name makes me want to work on my tackling.

Well do u think he will do better this year, i mean it was Capers. Hewas better on man to man in Oakland. This year they had him at Zone coverage. Will they switch back?

I don't think it was just Capers...PB reminded me of that guy on a commercial who dosen't want to go in the game, because he is getting a better face shot from the cameras on the bench.

if im not mistaken.. a FS spends more time in coverage than tackling. That is Buchanan's strong point.

Now, I can understand why we may need to really be careful about that kind of thing.. since we all remember Matt Stevens.. the guy who would go for a tackle and come up with a pair of nikes.

But Buchanan has the build, the speed, and the coverage ability to do everything but the tackling REALLY well.. its just the tackling part he would have to overcome :)

ok ur talking about all the improvments over this season and then the loss of casserly,,,but excuse me wasnt casserly involved in helping us have such an awesome off season. If they all seem to be working well together and making descisions and doing a good job, why change it. i like C.C.

I expect pbuc to be more motivated this season. 1) it is his contract year and 2) a better pass rush from our front 7 will make our secondary look better and 3)I would think with the new blood of coaches her, he should be motivated seeing that these coaches are getting rid of dead wood.

CC is the figure head at this point. With his respect in the organization and around the league, the Texans were not going to throw egg on the entire coaching and front office staff from 05'. Kubiak is running the shots at this point, and getting exactly what he wants . Bet we don't see casserly too much longer.:yahoo:

I suspect that's why he has thrown his hat in the ring for the VP job with the NFL.

Truth is FS is more coverage than anything, you are correct, but they also NEED to be able to land solid tackles. Putting PB back there would be just like us moving Coleman back there last year, decent coverage but no tackling. Also, if you remember, people were not very thrilled with Coleman's performance back there. It's a good thought, but I believe there are some solid guys in the draft this season that we could pick up with our #2 3rd pick, such as Pat Watkins or using our 5th get Peprah or Blue.

I also agree with yyou that the 2nd should be used on a solid CB this year, there are some goods ones out there :drool:

Absolutely I think he'll be better this year. For one thing he won't (like Dunta or anyone else we put back there) be asked to cover for 8-10 seconds every single time the opponent decides to throw the ball. That alone should make him look more like a genuine NFL corner. I'm not predicting that he'll suddenly be Pro Bowl bound or anything but I think that if the Texans give him a little "leash" then he'll start to look more like the ball hawk he can be. Buchanon isn't going to shut anyone down and the safety is going to have to keep in mind that Buchanon is going to give up the reception from time to time. If you can deal with that then you're probably going to get some picks from him if he plays the position the way he likes. Not much on the hitting but looking for the ball.

As far as a corner, I think the Texans should draft Will Blackmon from BC. He will probably be available in the third round and he has huge upside - he needs to gain a little more experience (he played receiver his senior year) but I think this would give the Texans a year to decide if "Toast" will live up to his potential and allow the rookie to gain some experience - as the nickel in the begining. It would be great if we could end up with 3 good corners for years to come.

I believe tackling can be tought. If he learns to have the right attitude. Here is the upside/downside to weak tackling; he won't be getting hurt or hurting anyone else. Maybe Drob gave him a crash course on the basics of tackling with attitude.

If I had to coach PBuc, then I would let him jump routes all day. I would use that to overcome the west coast offense. There are alot of quick timing patterns in the west coast offense. If the Qb knows someone will be jumping a route, then the seed of doubt is planted. Jumping routes is how I would overcome the dink and dunk offense as well. You just have to ensure the safety knows where the DB jumping the route is all the time. I think PBuc can be effective in that style of defense.

I'd agree Reggie first, but I'd take a line man first then 2 DB's.

yep tackling can be coached - its all about getting the right angles and right approach.

Our first pick, should come in and have an immediate impact.. after that i don't think who we draft will start.. maybe with the exception of a Linemen with our number 2 pick.. he may get the nod at RT.. if you don't know i'm leaning towards bush or d'brick, these guys can have an immediate impact.. i'm not a fan of young

Pbuc would make a miserable Safety. We may as well play him at nose tackle.

very true, but the willingness to do it, cannot .... nor can the enjoyment of doing it with hostility ...

I am going to wait for 4th preseason game before I believe this team can turn this into a winning season next year.

There have been some good moves but we shouldn't get ahead of ourselves.

Chris McKenzie should get in there and play for PBuc. He could probably tackle better than him. lol:
