Default McNair: Team needs more depth

McNair cites injuries

After losing 41-28 to the New England Patriots, the Texans left Gillette Stadium with some regrets and some feelings of progress. They left knowing things would be different next year, though not yet sure in what way.

“Last year and this year for some reason, players that we’ve lost have been key players,” Texans owner Bob McNair said. “It’s not our backup players; it’s some of our top players. As we develop more depth, when those things happen it’ll hurt us less and less. In this particular case, we got hit at one position with a lot of injuries. It made it very difficult. We’ll work on adding more depth and playing better.”

McNair referenced the Texans’ lack of depth at linebacker due to injury. In addition to Cushing, Tim Dobbins and Darryl Sharpton also are on injured reserve.

“We had no depth at linebacker,” McNair said. “We were up against one of the best quarterbacks in the league (in Tom Brady), and he knew that we were thin there. They just wore our linebackers out. Our linebackers played well; we just didn’t have the manpower. Brian Cushing’s in there, it’s a different story. We just need a little more depth. Keep working hard, and we’ll get there.”

McNair said despite the Texans’ tight salary-cap situation, they will be able to add depth through the draft and non-premium free agents.
