Wand did struggle early against Steve Foley, James Hall, & Jared Allen (Jared Allen?). That was to be expected. I think he's improved since then and that's to be expected, as well. But 5 of the next 7 games have the Texans facing legit pass rushers at RDE. And Freeney is the best of the bunch. I feel that the Texans need to run at Freeney early and allow Seth to lean a bit on Dwight.

That's happening on some passing downs, as the Colts have flipped Freeney to LDE and put pass rush specialist Robert Mathis at RDE. With Todd Wade's injury, Freeney vs. Marcus Spears isn't the greatest matchup, either. Speaking of Mathis, he has 5 sacks thus far (Freeney has 6) and has become one of the better players taken in the 2nd day of the '03 draft. I'm hesitant to mention this for fear that Bill's Fan is lurking, but Mathis was selected with the 5th round pick the Texans traded the Colts. Not a bad pick at all considering he's an ace on special teams, too.
