Default Defense,Defense,Defense

Did I mention Defense? Been reading some of the threads here. I notice some of you are talking about RB`s, O-Line and WR`s. If you like entertainment then by all means build up the Offense but if you want to WIN Super Bowls you have to build up the Defense. If you can’t stop the run doesn’t matter how great your O is. Just ask the Colt’s vs. PATS Playoff game this yr. Peyton should have paid for a ticket in the 3rd Q. The PATS running game kept him on the bench. Texans need D-Line bad! Marcus Spears should be there when Texans pick. Thought Texans would have went for FA Ed Hartwell, LB Ravens or John Abraham DL of Jets too. Just a cpl. of FA`s off the top of my head.
You can’t have enough LB`s. They are very versatile. IE:Special Teams. If Texans don’t shore up their D. It is going to be a very long season no matter who they pick up on Offense. It would be a BIG mistake to pick a RB or Mike Williams in the 1st round. Next cpl of yrs 1st round picks should be on D-Line.

I thought the same thing too at the beggining of FA but now Im glad we didnt. I dont think we need another LB thats going to cost us as much as Hartwell would have and we already have plenty of money tied up in the D-line, they are just under-performing. If we can get the line we have to play like we know they can then we should be just fine. Good post though. Nice to see another team's fan post something intelligent and insightful once in a while.

Since jets need a corner in the worst way; trade the 13th pick for the 26th pick and Abraham, that'll give us our DL or OLB and then we'll use the 26th on Matt Jones or BPA.

Supposing the Jets were interested...why would we be interested? Abraham is like the 23 rated DE. Walker and Smith are at 26 and 28 respectively. Not exactly a no brainer. If we could trade Buchanon for a 1st or swap spots given up, it might be a doable trade, but as things stand, this is AWFUL. Age and contract should not be considered. I'll take what the Texans have as oppossed to this scenario.

Now that we have Buchanan.

Im looking at OLB in the 1st. And interior Oline and DL in the 3rd and 4th.

Possibly a trade with Philly for #31 & 35.. that would give us two nice picks to grab an OLB and DL right there.

Texans need to get Marcus Spears with #13. He is made for 3-4. He can start right away. You can rotate him out with Walker. Walker and Payne are very injury prone. If not Spears use 13th pick Louis Castillo, DT, Northwestern 6'3" 305
this guy has very quick feet for a DT. I think you draft that low in this draft for a DL is going to be work in progress. Doesn`t matter who you have behind the D- Line. You give QB`s time to throw he will pick your D apart! It`s going to be a very long day. I do have to give props to Texans for trying to get OT Pace

You have a good point on Hartwell. DT Pat Williams would have been a good FA to pick up too. I don`t think they are under performing its the constant injuries the last 2 yrs. Is it time to cut Payne and Walker bring in some younger FA DL`s? Just a thought

If we can get a player like Marcus Spears, then he'll be much like the "Phillip Rivers" of our team. :woot

I'm not so high on Troy Williamson. Most of his reports say he has talent but lacks aggressiveness and runs soft routes. We already have a speed guy that does that named Corey Bradford.I would rather see them take Matt Jones than Williamson on O. I agree with the idea that we need to draft either an LB or DL prospect. Might be able to swap 3-4 and 4-3 like the Pats do.

Not with the 13th pick. This is not the place for a "chance"... A good high quality receiver will be available for that pick...
