Default What do we need??

Other than swtiching to the 4-3 (lol).

Offensive Line needs help
another CB would be nice

What do we need and who will feel those rolls.

From everything I saw this season we need.

1.) A pass rush: This is the biggest hole in the entire team. We put almost no pressure on the other teams passer. This could be fixed in many ways. DT, DE, LB.

2.) Pass Protection: This got better as the year went on so its hard to rip them like I want to. However, I will do it anyway. They at times are like a swinging door letting the pass-rush get to Carr.

3.) Stopping the run: Too much to go into as to why we aren't great at this. I just wish we could draft D.J. from UT. He could really fill more then one need.


Anyway, I know we have more needs then that. Like a good second option for Carr in the passing game, but I would much rather end up like the Ravens with a great Defense then be like the Chiefs in that every games final score looks like a basketball game.

Yeah O-line is big to me. When they dont have to blitz to get to Carr, we got problems. Definitly the front on either side of the ball.

Probably not the most pressing need on the team, but would a bruiser, change of pace type back be an idea? When he played, I thought Greg Jones was somewhat effective when the Texans played in JAX.

They also need to figure out how re-configure the LB's. Wong played out of his mind at OLB, but room needs to made for Peek. I'm sure this has already been mentioned/suggested, but Foreman might be the odd man out in the situation.

Cory Morrow also needs to sing the National Anthem before every official Battle Red Day from now on.

I think we really should emphasize on either of the lines and take the best available athlete at #13. Then address the secondary with our 2nd round pick. But you never know what CC has up his sleeve. A first round trade to bring Wright and Davis to Houston wouldn't surprise me. As for the linebacker situation, I too feel that Foreman will be the odd man out. I see Wong moving inside and Peek playing the OLB spot.

O-line

D-Line
Safety

I am new here and probably not as informed about all the players as you all might be but, I'm looking at what you guys think is the biggest need for the Texans and I see most of you all have center, gaurd, D-line, ILB, CB, and safety as the biggest needs. I really think it is LT, unless you guys think Wand is the answer, again I don't know, but watching the Colts game, both DE's were getting pressure in every play. I would like for the Texans to draft OT, NT, and ILB on the first day, unless someone we have rated as a top 5-10 prospect who isn't QB or RB is available.
