Honest question (not trying to be an ass), what have we seen in the past 2 seasons would give you the impression "we'll get it going during the season"?
Nothing....pass rush, secondary and defending the run are all STILL a big ?
I think we are still paying a huge price to upgrade our offense so Rick Smith/Kubiak where unable to justify a couple more high defensive picks. protection for Matt Schaub being the prioity. the Texans had to address cb with Dunta Robinsons injury both via free agency & the draft so there's another strike plus teams really paid premiums for elite pass rushers & now we know why......
still I beleive the maturation process of our DL should continue to improve our pass rushing #'s as the regular season moves along, thus echoing WesmanTexanfan
