At least Walter is out because of illness, not some injury.

If he was limited in practice then he'll play unless he has a setback. If they feared that he wasn't healthy enough to play then he would've been held out of practice.

As much as I want to see Walter play Sunday and play well I need to see something out of our young receivers. So far we're dealing with similar issues as the past where we aren't getting much out of the position other than Andre and KW. A ton of opportunities haven't been there because we've held such big leads and ran the air out of the ball in the second half of games, but I just want to try to get these guys involved more somehow.

As much as it would hamper our offense to NOT have OD out there on the field... anyone think that TE has become less of a draft need after seeing Graham's hands? I think we give him a chance and he'll be our guy pretty quick. If that FB we traded for back when with the Bears pans out, and Thor gets sent back to TE where he can make a huge difference, he and Casey could make opposing DCs tremble.

Clarification: I'm not saying we don't need OD - he's a huge cog in our offense. I'm just saying our future TE look may already be with us.

Agreed, pretty happy with our depth at TE, but OD is a special player who I feel is only just getting back to his best after a good few years that have been either cut short or held back by injuries.

Walter is a guy who I stood up for in the offseason, the kind of guy who will always be underrated during the offseason because on paper he's nothing special.

I like what we've got behind him and am more comfortable if he's limited/out come game time because Keymart, Posey and Jean are all talented guys who need good reps to develop. As long as he's healthy come playoff time its good by me.

When the games really count, you need Walter in there to take those 3rd and medium catches, do the really dirty stuff over the middle and in the shorter game etc.

No. I don't think it has become any less of a need. We only have 2 TE's on our roster right now, not counting Casey. If 1 of them goes down, then you are forced to move Casey to TE and put Clutts (Great name for a football player.) in at FB, with no depth behind either position. Even if you picked up another FA, it takes time to get them adjusted to the scheme. Besides, OD isn't getting any younger (30 next year.), so we need to keep filling the pipeline. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see Casey back at TE too, which I think is more his natural position. But, I'm still hoping the Texans draft 1 of those big fast TE's with good hands that can block too!

All I am going to sat is IF OD isn't ready to go.....Casey is just as it not more. a dangerous target.


This offense comes at you from so many different angles.

Injury reports are just a mandatory strategy play... Walter and OD both had good games and if A holding call wouldnt have brought back Walters 40 yard bomb, he would have had a badass game

I don't think we need to waste a first round pick on a TE, we have some good depth. Maybe a late round steal, but Rick does say he drafts the best player thats available and not the position

Do you really see TE as an option for Smithiak in the first round? They've only ever taken 1 offensive player in the first and seem to prefer middle to late round developmental pickups at the position. It seems as if they are just getting Casey and Graham to where they want them to be, and would be more likely to grab someone later on to teach rather than using a high level pick on one.

I see us handling tight end later on in the draft. We don't need a top flight height, weight, speed guy in this offense anyway. A good route runner with a nice set of hands is all that is required. If we keep using 4th and 5th rounders on tight ends, we will find that guy.

Have a feeling it won't be a TE in the first, but if he's THAT good and if Kubiak is THAT anxious about the future of OD, not just the immediate future but maybe a few years beyond right now, then I'd be OK with it. The TE is huuuuuge in this offense. We'd be worse off without Owen Daniels, guys.

Having said that, I think ILB should be the draft choice. It's a serious need right now. SERIOUS NEED. Not a subtle need, not a luxury need. Serious need.

And having said that, we know Rick Smith on draft day will target around 3 players who might or might not play different positions that he thinks fits this team's mentality and talent needs. And positional needs, as well.

Just as Mercilus fell to us out of the open sky above, I'm thinking Rick will wait for one of his key guys to fall to him on draft day. If we're at the tail end of Round 1, like we should be (wink, wink, nod, nod...) then maybe a monster TE would be smart since he'd probably go at beginning of Round 2.

While I do agree, can you imagine a Jimmy Graham/Gronkowski in this offense? Scary stuff. Just sayni...

Texans almost traded up for Mercilus, factoring in Mario Williams leaving via free agency. Cushing will return next season, stronger than ever based on his work ethic & rehab regiment that you know is off the charts, so ILB need will not be big as it is right now (like gaining a 1st rd. pick back).

I did a complete first round mock during the "BYE WEEK" http://www.texanstalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=95878 based off John McClain week 9 power rankings & it all hinges on how this thing winds up. Giants are desperate to upgrade TE position while Atlanta will have to face life without Tony Gonzalez who is planning to retire after this season. Both teams may be willing to trade up to grab Eifert, however without trades or draft position order changes I could easily make the case Tyler is BPA.

Yeah, I'm completely off the Tate train and want no part of him anymore. Freaking injury prone to the nth degree. Might as well IR him and use Grimes and Forsett and use that extra spot for Hartmann's kickoff skills.

Yeah, he's injury prone, but he runs the ball way better than Forsett. Did you see Forsett try to run against the Bill's terrible run defense last week? It was awful.

He didn't look great for sure. I really think Grimes would be better. Only one way to find out!

Either way, the question is this.... Can Tate get on the field (fighting legit injuries) v. Forsett not being all that productive?

Either way the Texans need a way to "spell" or give Arian a breather. How do they do that??? Maybe bringing back Grimes (after the Jets stole him off our PS) gets subdtely worked back in???

At the end of the day, I think it's HUGE that OD may not be able to go..... That sucks ASS!!

That may be true, but it's strange that an RB can look so great against a great team and sometimes poor against a poor one, and vice versa..........your won't really know without a larger sample size. Either way, it would be nice to see some of Grimes, especially if it looks like Forsett has hit a wall.

The question is are those teams viewing TE upgrade/replacement as a first round priority? I'm hoping we parley our 1st pick - hopefully its in the 30-32 neighborhood - for additional picks in case those guys, or others, want to trade back into the first round.

If we pull that off, and our first pick is in the 2nd round, who would be your choice??
