Rep Power: 11 georgewashington is ridin' the pine

i said they could work him in some as a DE, but also that being a rookie it is not smart to let all the lumps be made on the field. my point is that peek isnt going to progress without any chances in the game. the problem is that money decides who gets a chance to grow more quickly. And what i really find a problem with is the lack of subs in the linebackers. Every team rotates their players to get rest, especially when in the first half the defense was in 20 out of 30 mins. Why not let peek give babin a break, give wong a break. why not let wong move to the middle to give foreman a break. Thats the point of having some depth. All preseason there was talk about some depth at OLB and Wong's versatility. They need to use it. How come teams like the Seahawks rotate 8 defensive lineman? because it keeps them fresh and makes the team better. The texans need to learn from that and realize that even if peek and babin are still learning, they can rotate some and it will make the team and those individuals better in the short term and long term
