However, I think he will be a bigger part of the offense than that. McNair specifically said he wants to see Martin in the slot and see if his quickness can help us there. When the owner comes out and says something like that it leads me to believe that they expect him to be a regular contributor on game day.
I'm not so sure this is McNair's original thought. I believe that he's parroting what he's been told by Gary and Rick more likely than not. JMO of coarse.

If anything, he'll have some mysterious injury that wasn't seen by many people and end up on IR for the season....
My understanding is DJ had a chunk removed from his posterior and may need a few games to recover from that injury.

That was my point.

I'm pretty sure when he was discussed amongst the staff that is the idea in mind they had for him. The Texans organization seems like a pretty unified front.

Might be seeing more 3-WR or even 4-WR sets?

AJ will occupy WR1, which is an every down position.

Right now it's fair to say KW has the WR2 spot...though we all agree he's more likely going to end up WR3 with Posey as WR2.

This leaves Martin at WR4 no matter how it's sliced. How much can a WR4 get into the game each week...maybe 4 or 5 plays or so? We currently run a lot of multiple TEs too.

I'd like to see Kubiak go and blow the minds of everyone and switch up our offense and run more of a spread out of the shotgun with Yates throwing to 4-WR sets. Utilize Yates' athleticism to locate targets or take off running if there's nothing there. Not full time, mind you, but throw in a series every now and then that's nothing but no-huddle 4-WR sets and Foster or Tate in the backfield.

I think KW's snaps are going to be reduced this season. I think there will be times when Posey, Dre and Martin will be on the field together and I also think that we will look to give Andre a few more plays off to try to keep him healthy.

KW will still be #2 IMO, but I think we will see more of a rotation with the WR's IF they can step up and demand more playing time which is what I'm thinking the staff is hoping.

I love our offense and don't want to see it changed that drastically. I'd like to see more wrinkles like what you mentioned with Tate and Foster in the back-field together but I don't want to see us get away from the tight formations, under center, the bootlegs and such. I love this offense. It's an offense that I'm pretty familar with and I know that it makes everyones job a little bit easier. Every play is almost like a puzzle piece that fits together to form a picture. Except the offense has a cheat sheet to where each piece fits and the defense is staring at 5,000 pieces all laying about.

I wouldn't mind seeing us spread it out more like we used to do in past every now and then though, and just depending on match ups and what is successful.

Well I think he's gonna be awesome so suck on them bananas.





Expert analysis lol...Martin's got speed and better hands than Jones. Those numbers sound pretty gloomy but Jones was all athlete no brains. I think Martin's got the football savvy to match the athleticism. Michigan St. ain't no Lane College either...

Plus, I'm stoked that a I nailed a draft pick. And yes, I do see that as good karma!

I want Posey and Martin to contribute to the offense, but I'm not going to be surprised they both produce less than Kevin Walter and Owen Daniels. I will say that after 3 years They will both probably be on the 53 man roster.
