I don't know where the perception comes from that any midround drafted player would be an automatic instant upgrade. Our history with drafted OL isn't exactly stellar evidence. The best we've drafted would have already been hauled off to the chopping block if some of the fans ran the team.

McKinney has his flaws and liabilities but proclaiming Hodgdon as some OL savior is just ignorant.

Len Pasquarelli, the ESPN sportswriter, has a story claiming that the Chargers
and Bengals are the only 2 teams return their starting OL intact and at the
same positions as they played last year. I think he left us out of that group
by mistake, unless Cass & Capers have let him in on some info they haven't shared with anybody else. We may have been experimenting, but I don't think
any official changes in our OL lineup have been made.

I thought Pitts did a pretty good job at LT in 2003. The coaches moved him to LG because he isn't the prototypical LT and Wand was an intriguing option. I'm not ready to say Wand won't turn into a good LT, but Pitts already was becoming one. There were times in 2003 that he made the rushing ends just look silly. Also consider that Piits is really a project himself, having never really played much organized football. I think he's a very quick study, has always displayed a positive attitude, and I like his work ethic and desire to improve wherever they put him.

Alot of people discount Pitts' skills as a LT, but if the Oline is stinking it up early in the season, I'd expect us to move him back to LT, and try and draft one next year. it's either that or put riley in at LT. personally, i'd rather have Pitts at LT.

personally, I'd rather see Wand at LT. I would prefer that the only change to the O-line is a change of personnel at the center position with McKinney going to the bench. Other than McKinney going to the bench, I would rather see the line remain the way it was last season.

Who would you put @ C. Please elaborate on your choice so we can all understand you position.

Honestly, I wish I knew who would be best to replace McKinney. I'm not there watching practices. I'm not watching all of the films to see who would be good to bring in either. All I know is that I remember several times last season watching McKinney getting shoved back into Carr's face and forcing him out of the pocket into a waiting DE or LB. Did McKinney get credit for giving up the sack? He was the direct cause of the sack, but no, he wasn't credited with giving up the sack. IMHO, he is the "Weakest Link" on the O-line, and I would love to say "Good Bye" to him. Who do we get to replace him? I wish I knew.

Yes, I want Wand to start and do well at LT, but if he isn't getting the job done and the line is sucking, there's gonna be some changes on the line. If this is the case, does mckinney slide over to play LG, Pitts to LT? but then i'd wonder who would play center. hogden, probably not. washington, Don't know, seems old and slow. are there any other lineman on the team that can play center? the other option would be to replace wand with riley if wand isn't playing well.

Maybe if we move McKinney somewhere besides Center he'll do better. That multi tasking is killing him (Hike the ball, then block). Maybe if all he has to be concerned with is blocking he'll do a better job. LOL

They tinkered with him @ G in these mini-camps. Remember when they toyed around with Wong @ ILB in last years mini-camps? Where are the ILB's from last years team now? Hmmmmmmmmm.

For the first time i can look at a Texan schedule and honestly say that there is not a team on their that they cannot beat. So this one is a little difficult.

So lets do the math of averages. Each year I predict what our final record is going to be and i am pethetically wrong. The first year I said 8-8(4-12) The second year I predicted 9-7(5-11) Last year I went out on a limb and said
11-5(7-9) So I have been wrong by the average of four games. So lets say we go 16-0(with the schedule we have its possible )and then subtract the games that I have been wrong by(4) and so now my prediction will be 12-4. Yep 12-4.

Yes sir......12-4

If the Texans are to fall back on Washington as the OC, we are in more trouble than I thought. He is a decent run blocker, but he doesn't have the quickness needed to be an effective pass blocker
I agree McKinney dogged it last year, however he does have potential. Hurry up and learn the position Hodgdon.

Does anyone know how did McKinney play as a guard at Indy? If memory serves me he was a starter when Edge lead the league in rushing his first two years.
