When he was juiced. (which was also a very strong rumor prior to the draft) That Performance dropped noticeably after his suspension.

Not crossing threads, but I'm worried that Grigson will make these bold moves and the Rick wont. If this happens it wont be long before the Texans pass the Texans in the standings again.
Quite a few wanted Matthews because Texans were in desperate need of pass rusher opposite of Mario. This is an illustration in some of logic of Texans drafting. They draft Cushing who played primarily SLB/MILB at USC to play OLB. What's the first thing Wade does when he comes in, moves Cush to LILB where he had his best success while at USC.
