All of this talk about Posey still? Really?
Posey didn't do squat last season. He made a few plays at the end of the season, but before that he struggled all year to take a position start from guys like Jean & Martin who many were trying to tout as the next big time play makers on the other side of AJ. Did that happen ever? Nope. Just imagine if Martin or Jean got hurt early on in the year for the entire season, and this same off season talk would consist of a ton of people going on and on about how much potential Martin or Jean had and what they could have done had they not gotten hurt. Luckily they didn't, and we're not going through that debacle, but Posey still exists as this next Jacoby Jones/Martin/Jean guy that is going to be the next #2 WR that never breaks out to hardly do anything.
The Texans just need to throw their chips in on a bonafied stud that doesn't have a ton of risk at him being a bust, so they'll need to find a way to get the best guy out of the draft this season or trade up next year if they want to finally accomplish this task of finding a new big time WR. All of this worthless talk about Posey is a waste of time, and people need to look back on history and look at how many other lower tier hopefuls failed to be the guy on the other side of AJ that would do a lot of damage. Posey isn't that guy anymore then JJ/Jean/Martin were. He is just another guy that has low potential that hasn't proven anything that Texans fans are putting blind hope into at this point. HIs injury doesn't help his case either.
While I agree about the who lower tier hopeful( Jeremiah Johnson I thought something more), Posey was the # 2 prospect coming out Highschool I believe .that dude has the tools to become a solid 1 . Plus he has the want to to get better,and who better to be learning from than a great worker in AJ . Devier Posey would make plays with no QB so he should only be better with an adequate QB in Matt( which is IMO ).
Maybe I'm bias by being a fan ,but I've seen examples in previous hard workers like, Kareem ,Brian ,and JJ, so I'm hopeful this will work with with Posey too . Maybe even drafting Keenan Allen or Nuk . Pair that with. Aj ,Keshawn and Posey mid season. Yea I think the future looks bright for the Texans Wr's
Remember when the secondary was the weakest unit we had . Seems like the good drafting of Rick smith has been paying off . Don't be so quick to write someone off . He was a rookie and Wr is one of the hardest to get use to in the nfl .
