The Texans may transition to a game plan involving greater expectations for the offense.
Just my opinion but I think Mister Alexander will always be a special teams guy who can maybe spell a starter for a couple of snaps until the other team realizes he's in there and that's the beginning of the end of that. Sharpton I doubt plays again for us and if he does come back he'll probably be hurt before long. He's even smaller than Dobbins. Nope, we're really thing behind Cushing. Much thinner than we were last year behind Mario or DeMeco
