good article from reasonable point of view

from the article and kind of scary thought
The other direction the Texans could look is to free agency, but they’ve already been down this road three times. Each of the last three offseasons has seen the Texans make one big signing on the line: center Steve McKinney in 2002, right guard Zach Wiegert in 2003, and right tackle Todd Wade in 2004. Since they comprise 60% of the starting unit, perhaps it is safe to assume that 60% of the line’s problems are theirs, too.

And since those three signees account for significant real estate on the team’s salary cap, replacing one of them before their contract runs out will be costly, too. Think of it another way though: Not replacing at least one of them though could be even more costly to Carr and his career longevity.

oh well, if they arn't producing, who cares if we just signed them, the defense has actually picked it up, i wouldn't be opposed to letting Seth Payne go, and using those dollars coupled with other free agency money to sign Walter Jones.

Use a first or second round pick on a NT... (maybe 2nd rounder can nab us Haloti Ngata)
