The biggest upgrade specific to this game only was that Cappers & staff were clearly outcoached by Shanahan & staff. All ths misdirection stuff killed us, the Linebackers lost contact with the TE's whom ranover the much smaller DB's of the Texans. Fundamental tackling must improve agree with Ibar_ Harry
``Every man is going to step up and take full responsibility,'' Texans coach Dom Capers said. ``We didn't do a good enough job coaching and we didn't do a good enough job playing.''
Seth Payne was an anchor in the middle & played a terrific game, he is showing signs of returning to form, the major question would be his future contract/extension how much are the Texans willing to tie up like they did with Gary Walker. That we don't know. So drafting a DT to replace Seth would be contingent on his contract more than being a upgrade.
Give Glenn Earl more exposed playing time @ SS to help decide how critical the need is to draft a premier College Safety
I like having Coleman as the free safety this works to his advantage & the Texans as a playmaker, Mcree is a solid back-up & provides depth.
The Texans do need some succession planning with a true center prospect, here as I've mentioned before big Ben Wilkerson from LSU in the 2nd round would be an excellent fit for the future of the offensive line.
The #1 need will be another shutdown corner like Dunta Robinson, but only if the right one is still available (they are hard to find) another LSU player Corey Webster more like a young Coleman with nice size 6-0 & 200 lbs, former WR with good speed & reacts to the ball well (would need some time to develop behind Aaron Glenn).
