Default The Off-Season is now Underway.

The offensive line needs the most help. The Texans need to pick up a established veteran off free-agency to shore up the left side of the line. Chester Pitts is pathetic and has no business in a NFL uniform.

I'm not sure of the draft order for Houston but its probably around the 12-16th pick. The Texans should go for the best linebacker or defensive end available.

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned somewhere else, but wasn't Pitt's questionable all week with an ankle injury? Is it possible that 'pathetic' and 'no business in an NFL uniform' is a little harsh?

No Pitts has been playing poorly his entire career. His ankle is the very least of his troubles.

I think Pitts is getting by more on the fact that he has been there for every snap more than his ability, and also the fact that no one on the depth chart can challenge them.


We need Walter Jones from seattle. then draft someone in round 2-5 as an interior lineman, keep everyone else and move on from there.

Yeah, i was thinking almost the exact same thing earlier today just b4 the game. Sure Pitts has started every single game, but hell maybe thats the problem. We all know pass protection has not exactly been our friend in these first 3 years. I dont know alot about the good O-Lineman (As far as names go) in the leauge other than Odgen, but i do know Seattle has a good O-Line and if we could acquire Walter Jones, I think that would be really nice.

Pitts is our best drive blocker. He makes visible mistakes but he is a heck of a blocker most of the time. We have other linemen who can't block near as well as Chester.

This year there are a lot of good O-linemen in the draft, and if we cant get one in free agency I would really be happy if we could get one in with one of our first two draft picks.
