I don't think Plax would've been dominant from the get go but I believe he would've helped us down the stretch but we were too settled on getting Keyshawn Martin and Devier Posey experience.
There is just something in me that says a call was never even made. I don't think Plax possesses the speed he use to, but he has decent hands & wouldve been another big physical target in the redzone which is exactly where the Texans had issues.

I don't even think Kubiak was set on getting Martin, Posey, or Jean going until it was too late. Martin made mistakes early & started losing time. Jean never got going after his knee scope & Posey did not get his limited shot until the end of the season. Walter continued to be the starter week in & week out & when Martin started failing that's when Graham started emerging. Unfortunately, he was a bit inconsistent as well. I think it's just time to give the younger guys a true shot w/ legit playing time & that means removing Walter from the equation. I truly believe that at least 1 of them could've easily produced what Walter did, 500 yrds & 2 TD's, this season had they been given legit playing time.
