Default Cowher on the Texans

I don't know what you guys think of Bill Cowher's opinion, but he had some good things to say about the Texans, Matt Schaub, & Gary Kubiak. Here's a link to his visit with J&R..

Give it a listen, then let's discuss.

He sounded reasonable. He was higher on Kubiak than I am, he was straight about Schaub. Until Schaub actually does something in the playoffs, there will always be doubt about him, and rightly so. He also said something we've all be saying around here, we need another good WR before the offense can take the next step. He said you have to have two good wide outs to be effective, and that's the truth. We have one. A damn good one, but he's still just one.

I liked the interview. And I wouldn't put nothing on the fact he said he could win the Super Bowl with the Texans. It was more of an off the cuff remark than something real definate.

Cowher's analysis is spot on. I think he was right about Schuab and Cushing. If our defense is going to work, Cushing has got to be healthy run all over the place making plays.

Loosing Cushing was big, but Cowher also hit on another thing. Injuries to that position. Dobbins got hurt, James got hurt, Sharpton got hurt... Barrett Ruud probably didn't expect to play as much when he signed on.

I don't think continuity is as important for the position as it is for your offensive line, but if you look, it was one week after another. It was rare that we started the same two ILBs in back to back weeks after Cushing went down & it was just as rare that the two guys that started the game were the same two guys that ended the game.

Then we caught an injury bug at the safety position for a little bit as well.

I don't like to blame injuries, & we managed to win quite a few of those games regardless. But I think our situation was unusual & our coaches handled it about as well as could be expected.

He also mentioned a little bit of luck helping Baltimore get to the dance. Team of destiny he said.

Agreed. I think the loss of Cushing was huge. And Schaub has to step up his game and prove he can take this team to the sb. I would also throw in the fact that RS sent the right side of the ol packing in the offseason. Drafting project wrs didn't help either.

Thanks for the link TK!

It sucks when you take "educated" chances like that & they don't work out. Surely we expected some drop off going from Winston & Briesel to Butler & Gump... surely they could "hold the fort" until the future was ready to play..... but nooooooo. They both get hurt early, Butler before the season started.

Now... WR. He's only been working on this for 6 seasons & we've got nothing to show for it. From day one, we were in no position to field 3 WRs...... that's a fail imo. Coaching staff & Smith (scouting department) we've brought plenty of WRs in over that time & haven't found one to stick, then get yourself in a situation where you're overpaying not one, but two #3 WRs... fail.

Not saying we shouldn't still try and upgrade the position but posey was on his way to becoming #2 before he got hurt. he was really starting to look like he was becoming legit. I still think Martin has the skill set to become a solid slot WR. He had a rough freshman year i know but most WR's make a big jump in their second year.
