The obvious is that 40 catches from your number 2 WR does not work in the current NFL (Ashlie L...really).
It worked just fine against Denver, Baltimore, and Cincinnati.
That being said, upgrading is necessary. Part of the 2nd guy issue is all the throws to the tight ends. Owen Daniels had 60 catches last year, and Garrett Graham had another 28. Daniels is certainly the 2nd best pass catcher the Texans have had. There's a good chance that changes this year, due to both Owen being a little older (lowest y/r since his rookie year) and Hopkins being that good.
