Default NFL Network State of the Texans

NFL Network did a "State of the Texans" program.

I swear these talking heads are dumb. Did you hear that one guy? "Mario sacks 10 times a game" HA!

Talking heads talking stuff they don't know about and was written out for them by a script writer.

Mario Williams averaged ten sacks a game huh? Wow. No wonder Buffalo paid so much for him.

You guys are being really cynical. They open the video with a disclaimer that this is a "brief glance" at the Houston Texans.

Billick makes the (correct) assertion that Houston could go DT, DE/OLB, or WR...
McGinest obviously meant 10 sacks/year for Mario...
He mentions that Demeco was the "true leader" of the defense, which nobody really disagrees with...

The only big goof is that he implies Barwin, not Cushing, needs to step up and assume Demeco's leadership role.

Mario played 6 seasons and had 53 sacks, which is 8.8 a year on average. Mario was averaging a sack a game in 2012 before he went down. That would be 16 a year if he actually finished the season. I don't know where the 10 number comes from or where it was going, but it didn't make sense.

The first guy (Billick?) gets on there and starts talking about Poe as a DT for Wade's system, which pretty much shows he doesn't know anything about Wade's system. It took our own fanbase quite some time to get used to the idea that Wade wants a ~300 pound guy, not a 330+ mountain in the middle, but I think most people are on board with it now.

The Whitney Mercilus suggestion is also weird, as he doesn't really fit our scheme. He's a 4-3 DE who might be able to play OLB in a 3-4, but isn't nearly as polished for that position as Shea McClellin. Merc is a one-year wonder kind of kid that has a good chance to bust if he is a 1st round pick. Making him a 5-tech 3-4 DE would be a disaster.

I don't have a problem with the WR suggestions of Hill and Wright, but I have a feeling the Texans will outsmart everyone and pick Rueben Randle.

Overall, I would say it was a rather uninformed segment.
