Re: Pro Football Focus: Texans O-Line is mediocre
Toro that was about the Titans game, not the entire season.
Have to agree with Fiddler. The line is improving but it hasn't been steller this season. What it has been is generally inconsistent and we're mainly talking the right side though Wade Smith has his lapses here and there. There's a reason after all Ben Jones ended up getting worked in at guard. Caldwell wasn't being consistent enough for Kubiak's liking. Those were the time you heard Kubes say he wasn't pleased with the running game. And Jones being a rookie you can only expect that he will need time and experience to get his footing at the position. Not like he immediately stepped in there and blew folks away. Same for Newton who for the first part of the year was like a roller coaster with his play.
But they are getting better and hopefully will become a more consistent unit though Newton has been missing time with the injury. They're young and that is to be expected.
