I think that pettway needes to play well in the pre-season, especially on special teams.

I would really like to see Evans step up his game a bit.

AJ is most likely dead on about Pettway. My thoughts from the 2005 draft was that Kenneth would be the sleeper pick to actually make the roster, as Vinny states Casserly goes for talent over experience at least in regards to positions of depth. there is some danger involved exposing diamonds in the rough to the practice squad as they can be claimed by other clubs, so do you want to take a chance of losing a potential frontline player in a couple years for a marginal filler now? don't think so.

As for Peek this should be his year to greatly impact the defensive front. it is going to be much more difficult to throw the ball on the Texans so he will have to maintain his area and be also effective against the run & short pass.
OLB's-
  • Babin
  • Peek
  • Anderson
  • Pettway
ILB's-
  • Wong
  • Greenwood
  • Polk

Remember, most of Peeks stops came on special teams as well. he has basically no in game LB experience.

Peek started 4 games in 2003 which were legitimate starts and 1 game last year which was more of an in the game for the 1st defensive play start (Wong, Babin and Peek were all credited with starting against Indy on 12/12).

I kind of favor letting the young, talented guys get out on the field and learn the hard way. The Texans are still a very young franchise and we, as fans, are wanting them to win NOW. Maybe if we show some patience developing players like Peek, Anderson and Pettaway(SP?) we can have a solid core on the defense for years to come. Players can only learn so much from practice and need the game day experience to become productive starters in the NFL.
Kind of like the Astro's are letting the young guys in that organization get on the field and play. We'll take some lumps this year, but 2005 and on will be soooo much sweeter because of those lumps. Remember....5 YEAR PLAN. Not 4. :brickwall

i agree. but for that to happen i believe that peek anderson and pettway must get about the same playing time in the pre-season. that way the texans can see how good everybody is without the problem of some guys having more time than others to prove what they are worth. just my opinion.

Sounds reasonable to me. I guess I mostly like the idea of keeping away from the high$$$ free agency market(unless it's a total no-brainer) and develope our draft picks to avoid the salary cap hell other teams go through. I guess it's easy to have that opinion when we seem to have done a pretty good job of drafting talent( Joppru not withstanding).
