Default Peek Performer

Peek performer
OLB Antwan Peek has seen limited time (75 plays), but has proven to be effective when given the chance. The Texans exciting playmaker recorded his second sack of the season on a crucial Titans 3rd and 10 conversion attempt last week (11/28/04). Peek knocked the ball loose from McNair's hands while fellow LB Kailee Wong scooped up the forced fumble to give Houston's offense possession at their own 19.

Peek recorded his first career interception against Indianapolis (11/14/04) in the fourth quarter. The week before, Peek blocked a punt by the Denver punter Micah Knorr, which was converted into a Houston touchdown. In two plays at LB against Denver, Peek contributed with one tackle for loss. He posted three tackles, including two QB pressures and a 10-yard sack at Kansas City in only 15 snaps. Out of 75 plays, peek has made 15 big plays (20 percent).

This is straight out of the game notes this week. I think this sums up my argument for getting peek some playing time. I find it interesting that for two weeks in a row something very similar has been posted on the texans own web page about how Peek has performed so high with little chances. The guy is a play maker yet he isnt on the field. 20% of the time he is on the field he makes a big play. Thats 1 out of 5. Chances are if he was allowed to play more he would produce more, and maybe this debate wouldnt go on every week.

By popular demand, it looks like the odd man out amoung the LBs has gotta be Foreman, and since Wong is very reluctant to play inside, Babin is gonna have to slide in next to Sharper. Actually, Babin has played with excellent lateral movement and they might as well take their experiment to the nth degree and play Babin @ ILB. That way Peek could be on the field on a full time basis and Wong would be happy 'cause he'd still be @ OLB.

very good point about moving babin inside. no one has really brought that up, but i think that would be a great idea. It would give him the ability to really affect the run. He would be able to plug the holes. Ive been saying all along to get that combination on the field, and that could be a way to do it next season. However, who knows if the team would even consider doing it.

Did any of you notice how after Peek forced McNairs' fumble, he was double teamed on every play after that.

Babin does not belong in the middle. He belongs on the outside where he has room to make more moves. Its his first season and he is doing pretty good i must say. Peek belongs on the outside too, if not, he would have been brought in to replace Foreman. All said and done, we are on the right track with our linebackers. Ever since the blowup at the Colts people have been searching for wild answers. But look around, the Colts are blowing everybody up. They even scored a lot of points against NE. Settle down and leave the defense alone, we have enough adjustments from last year as it is.

the problem is that if things are left alone someone is the odd man out and will be leaving this team after next season. peek is either going to get more time or leave, or wong is going to move to the middle so peek can play or stay on the outside and either force peek to leave or wong will leave. tahts the problem if things are left alone.
