Oh, and our new defense being all talk instead of actually being agressive.
Me too. Our lines got pushed around 2nd game against the Titans. I want our lines pushing them around TY.

Default Re: What is your main concern this season?

1-That Bush turns out to be another Richard Smith

2-Schaub will have to dodge Chris Myers and dl on passing plays (draft Alex Mack)

3-Kubiak will continue to mishandle the clock, challenges, and play calling in pressure situations

4-Dunta Robinson becomes a locker room cancer

5-We reach on draft picks to fill needs instead of taking bpa (this years reach would be cb in the 1st)

6-Sign an aging rb to a long term contract and then draft a nobody in the 6th or 7th round because you think your system allows you to play just about any one cut and go back

7-Antonio Smith continues Weavers sackless streak

8-Amobi and Travis set new records for rushing yards allowed

9-Demeco plays like last year

10-Schaub doesn't make it through the entire season

But do you not agree RB will be addressed in draft and maybe x 2? Most fans are in agreement at least one will be selected.

How many QB sacks or hurries leading to negative yards did Myers give up? I just don't remember him being a poor as you indicate?

Dunta is arguing for a contract and has not missed any requited team events. What gives you any concern he will be a cancer? Certainly nothing historically. His health may be an issue as to returning 100% but not his attitude.

Using your BPA system, at what point do you finally address a priority need?

Signing a FA "aging RB" seems to not be a concern unless after June 1st cuts. I think Smith has learned on signing those type backs. Most mocks have a back selected in 3rd or 4th.

I am with you on 7&8

Eh.

Don't really have any concerns with the Texans. Can't sweat it too much. our team is what it is. don't have much control over that.

I'm just more concerned if the season will ever get here! I'm so ready for some Texans football win or lose!

My list doesn't mean I think these things will happen. They are things I don't want to happen this season. I'm as excited about the draft and upcoming season as the rest of the hardcore Texan fans.

I was offering hope not attacking your thoughts. How would you address the three areas of need that Kubes and Smith identified? Stopping the run, increase scoring in Red Zone and DE opposite Mario Williams. Do you think Antonio Smith DE signed in Free Agency is all we need for that side of defensive line or would you draft another defensive end?

Stopping the run.

Tough one because Amobi and Johnson are who we have and the Texans have invested a whole lot of money in the dl. We need to draft a dt after the 1st round (unless Raji were to fall) that they think can fill the run stopping role. Okam might play better this year but who knows. Get another big boy and let the battle begin. Competition.

Increase scoring in the red zone.

I think drafting a guy like Alex Mack who is about as close to a sure thing as you can get and then drafting a back that is good at picking up tough yards would go along way. That is the only 2 picks I would use on offense in the draft.

Antonio Smith.

I think he is going to be a real suprise this year and be the de that the Texans have been looking for opposite Mario. He won't lead the team in sacks but he should provide enough pressure where teams can't double team Mario all the time. Add a fast lb to the mix and this defense could be exciting to watch. The middle of the line is what scares me.

I think JJ will be given T/C and pre-season to perform or lose his spot.
I'm hoping he has grown up some and steps up this year.
but if he doesn't...
