Default Re: the Early Returns Are In....

I think what has made a world of difference, is not just the draft picks themselves, but also the coaching staff and the overall attitude of the team. The NFL has a quick learning curve. For most, if you don't grab the bull by the horns within the first couple of seasons, your career is over. A good example is David Carr. Every team thought the guy had what it took. But no leadership in the locker room, along with poor teaching and horrible coaching, never allowed this guy to progress. Hence, couple hundred sacks later and pocket shy, a shell of what could have been. But, if you come in, learn, get proper instruction, and have the proper environment to learn, you can takes leaps! That is how the good teams have stayed on top so long. Great veteran leadership and competent stability in the front office. Neither of which the Texans had either in tthe leagues existence. Now we are seeing older guys aid the younger, while at the same time, welcoming the challenge. We are seeing coaches hold players accountable on the field, not just to show up at the bank and cash a free agent check. Again. Kudos to Smith, Kubs, the remaining coaching staff, and the players buying into the system.....
