Default Re: The TexCanada off-season

If starting Butler and trading Winsyon means signing ASO or Bailey I'm all in.

Winston had an avg yr in 2009 and a below avg 2010.

I dont get the Winston is irreplaceable theme that seems to be the vibe on this MB.

The last 2 yrs Winston hasn't played up to his reputation or talent level. IMHO

He seems to be happy being what he is. An O.K. RT. This is the attitude that needs to change. If the Texans want to make the playoffs. They need to change the culture of the leaders on this team.

he looks like a pretty serviceable LT to me. not so much a ZBS however, more your prototypical classic LT uses a wide base & long arms. He doesn't have the core strength needed or bulk to play RT on a consistant basis. I had my doubts too when Brown had to sit those four games but he actually out-performed him from a protection standpoint, not as effective in run blocking. So I can see high interest for his services from any team needing that type of LT, with Texans luck probably a Super Bowl team

My ideal move would be to re-sign him. Then start him @ LT & move Brown to RT & kick Eric inside to RG. that would be a pretty good switch-eroo while addressing Center position in draft or see if Caldwell can do any better than he has @ RG?

I think that would be a good move if we can pick up a good swing tackle. Caldwell may benefit from sitting another year or two.
