You mean to tell me that in ALL of College football last year there was NO ONE out there that would not be a better long term solution to left tackle than Seth Wand? Are you kidding me? By taking Travis Johnson 1st in the draft, Casserly is finally admitting the mistake he made giving an 11 million dollar signing bonus to Gary "FAT" Walker. After each loss last year, gary walker would make some ridiculous statement about how he was sick of the way the team was playing. How about your play last year gary? You stunk up the place last year.
Memo to the Texans: You have to block to be productive on offence. Look at Denver, everyone they put in the backfield is successfull because they block. :confused:

um... no.

For one.. no there is no better long term solution than Seth Wand. Wand is very talented and needs time to develop. We wont know if he sucks or not for another season or two.

How could signing a young DT be considered "admitting" the mistake of paying a 30+ year old player?

Every time we draft someone are we gonna say "Finally CC has shown that he too thinks it was a mistake to resign *insert current player at that position*" ???

And if throwing together an Oline like Denver's was possible in one year.. everyone would have one.

Read the scouting reports on Michael Munoz, and remember that his dad was a Houston Oiler and a Pro-Bowler. He started four years at Tennessee and has the best technique of anybody at the combines. He's returned from injury, so his work ethic is great. The Texans missed a good one, with fan recognition, for either guard or tackle.

Seth's footwork has been one of his biggest selling points since we got him.

Yo John we obviously bought in Philip and Travis to replace the two oldest players on our defensive roster.

They also possess a huge salary. Maybe, just maybe, these veterans see that there time is almost up, and they could restructure, if not they will be cut.

Our next two oldest players, Marcus Coleman and Seth Payne, FS and NT positions can play relatively high in years. many vets like Aeneas Williams, Rod Woodson, Merton Hanks played into there late 30's.
