Whew!! I feel so much better now. I was affraid that he was going to get Carr killed because he is consistantly going to see the best pass rusher a team has, just like Jason Taylor. Now that you have assured us that he is going to be fine, twice, I feel so much better now. thanks coach.

Let's have a little reality check here. One, it's likely that the Texans will give Wand help on a premier pass rusher in an actual game. Two, a Texan game plan against a premier pass rusher would likely include some early off tackle runs right at said pass rusher. Nothing slows down a pass rush more than a running game and if you look back at the Texans win over the Dolphins last year (when Jason Taylor went sackless and tackle free) that's exactly what they did.

I'd love to see the Raiders super stud rookie Robert Gallery face Jason Taylor 1 on 1, because I'm certain that Taylor would eat him alive at this point in their careers. And if that did happen, I don't think the Raiders would dump Gallery on the bench and bemoan drafting him. A football fan should have realized going in that there would be a learning curve. Everyone may have different expectations, but no one should think that Wand will become a complete LT overnight. I'm thinking that by the last 3rd of the season, Wand will be handing out more whippings than he takes.
