Pro Football Focus (http://www.profootballfocus.com/) begins it's assessment of the 2012/13 Texans:

After a decade that started with terrible play and David Carr at the helm, followed by mediocrity with the beginning of the Matt Schaub era, Houston finally became a force to be dealt with in 2011. The Texans have a lot of star power all over the field, which means they could be the predicted division champions for years to come.

However, this offseason money became the Texans’ enemy, as one of the former faces of the franchise, Mario Williams, left for Buffalo. A few other former starters had to leave town as well. While the keys to the Texans are still in place, some of the problems weren’t fixed either, which should lead to an interesting 2012.

A fair analysis. Maybe I'm just not seeing it, but I don't have the worries some do about the O line. I think they'll be fine. I'm more worried about the WR position than I am about the O line.

As to the defense, I think K Jackson will improve. The thing is though, he has to, because there isn't a lot of depth behind him. Other than that postion, I think the defense is solid and will kick some serious ass this season.
