Rep Power: 11 Texansbacker is ridin' the pine

Nice post jr0ck. The Texans have had some great moments since 19-10 indeed, although the Cowboy spanking was extra special with cheese.

The opener at Miami was great, as was strumming Jacksonville, the Titans, da Raidas, even the loss against Minnesota showed some progress and a possible glimpse of things to come.

The writer mentioned that the Texans have had no pass rush and that is true. He failed to account however for the fact that our D-linemen were all not 100% healthy. For our D to be effective the D-line needs to dominate and everything else will come together but it starts up front. Same on the O-line and I hope the experience gained by Wand last season will turn him into the player he is hoped for and provide the protection Carr needs.

If the Texans get good line play, then and only then will we get to see the talent and speed of our skill players on both sides of the ball.

Rep Power: 0 Nighthawk does not work well with others
Default This article is generous.

I'm not here much and rarely post, but i agree completely with the assessment in the article. this team will probably not do so well again this year and then i hope we'll go out and look for a coach (and a GM?) that can light a fire under the players we have and acquire the players we need. So far it's been just a play dress up NFL team.

Good article and sums up many things I felt and have mentioned on this board several times this off-season in particular.

It is hard to explain, but if you listen to a liberal commentary, then you will see what I mean. They are really good at pointing out the problems in the other guy. I will stop there before I .

Anyway the article accentuated the bad and barely touched the good.
