The offensive ranking on points has equaled or bettered that season in each season since. To be fair that is the season Schaub and Johnson led the league at their respective positions although we have since been told yardage doesn't count.
i wasnt his biggest fan when he was here, but looking back our offense definitely seemed a bit different during kyle's tenure. i think that's what we need - someone who's in tune with our staff and can work within the scheme, but someone who also does things with his own style. kubiak obviously gets repetitive and kyle broke him out of his ways just enough to improve our passing game. it's gotten stale again and needs a change, someone to shake things up a little.

I think Shanahan was only more Kubiak rewarding his friends and any limited success had more to do with Eric Winston, Demeco Ryans, Jacoby Jones, Neil Rackers, Lawrence Vickers, Joel Dressen, Jason Allen, Mike Brisel and Mario Williams being on the team rather than Mike Shanahan's son being the OC. There is also an argument for the reason the Texans are not as successful today is because they've never been able to replace Eric Winston, Demeco Ryans, Jacoby Jones, Neil Rackers, Lawrence Vickers, Joel Dressen, Jason Allen, Mike Brisel and Mario Williams with equal or better quality talent. And why is that? The last 4 years the Texans have had their hands tied and their backs up against the salary cap wall.

that's one way of looking at it, the other is you cant afford to pay 20 probowlers. we must be doing something right if we're drafting and coaching up so much talent that they're getting major deals elsewhere. we still were second in probowl attendees last year with 8 despite losing so much talent. graham is equal or better than dreessen, watt and mario, brooks and briseil, hopkins and jacoby, and more. you're completely full of it if you think that drafting and keeping our own is the problem.

sure we have holes, but who doesnt? the issue is the most important position on the field, and to a lesser extent the playcalling for that one position.

Yeah I think we do a good job with drafting. It's just the QB and stubborn coach that is pulling the rest of the team down. And yeah, some cap blunders by Smith, too, but the Texans do draft well.
