Like I have been saying in other threads. In Wade We Trust. He is the biggest signing last season. Of course, we did have enough talent to go at least .500 in 2010. You guys know the rest of the story. (Coaching, Coaching, Coaching)

Go Texans!!!

I agree, the talent has been there.... but not the quantity. Our back-ups (while I wouldn't say they could start for other teams) aren't the liability they used to be. Sharpton got hurt.... Demeco get's more time. Foster missed the first couple of games, our 2nd round pick from the prior year steps right in. James Casey gets hurt, Vickers.... a better blocker to begin with steps in.

Mario gets hurt again, two 2nd round picks step up.

Point is they got a DC in who knows what they are doing and that IMO made the difference between another lukewarm .500ish season into one that gave us a playoff berth and win at home.

Cushing was on maternity leave, then Demeco had his Achilles... I remember we signed a LB off the street on a Tuesday & he was playing starter's minutes that Sunday.

Wilson gets hurt (he appeared to have lost a step at the beginning of the season) we put Nolan in the game to cover Kj's mistakes.... blind leading the blind, they were both basically rookies with Bernard Pollard teaching them the finer points of covering WRs.

Yes, I'm much happier with Wade Phillips than Frank Bush, but Bush was a goat..... 2010 was more of a depth issue than a coaching issue.

Some very good points in this post. It. Will be nice to draft for depth not need. They still have to make sound picks but it's not life or death as it has been for the last 10 yrs.
